Book the experience of a lifetime

Another year has just begun. This is the perfect time to start making plans for new trips and seek out new adventures. In recent years, the Vipava Valley has come on the radar of many a traveller seeking pristine nature and a uniquely different trip. Despite its rising popularity though, the valley managed to stay authentic, friendly and serene. There are no throngs of tourists in the Vipava Valley as the offering is such that it appeals more to individual travellers and small groups who know how to appreciate the attention lavished upon them by their hosts. This is why the best hideouts and the most thrilling experiences should be booked early in the year. Hurry up and make sure to book your preferred top adventure well ahead of time!

Charming rural stays

The Vipava Valley redefines luxury. There are plenty upscale accommodations available in the hamlets, towns and villages across the valley, while the country retreats are charmingly quaint, provided with the necessary amenities, and very tidy. There is something else that stands out: the peace of the countryside and the casual pace of life which will make for a perfect timeout. When was the last time that you woke up to bird song or fell asleep to the extraordinary rhythmically sounds of the burja wind? Care for a big breakfast in any of the agritourism farms? How about setting up a tent in a campsite boasting a wonderful view of the outskirts of Vipava Valley? Or would you prefer settling down for the night in a lovely room in a chocolate box village? The hospitality of your hosts will convince you that the accommodation of your choice – whatever it might be – was absolutely the right pick. Just make sure to book well in advance as it may be difficult to get your preferred accommodation if you wait too long.
