The Paradise Valley is Real

The Vipava Valley is uniquely different. All year round.

Every cloud has silver lining, they say. In the current situation, many try to stay upbeat by consciously reminding themselves and those around them of the upsides of the coronavirus crisis. Staying aware of the abundance and beauty around us is one way to cope with this highly unusual situation. The Vipava Valley is a paradise valley! The valley received the byname “Paradise Valley” back in the 17th century, but now seems the perfect time to revive it. This sublime valley with exquisite wine and food for gods is enchanting at every turn. You are welcome to take part in its abundance and enjoy its embarrassment of riches. Now and year round.

To experience it once ...

This until recently virtually unknown Slovenian destination is gradually being discovered as a hidden tourism gem, and social media is abuzz with rave reviews. The media too has picked up on the hype about the Vipava Valley.

Just recently, Helen Coffey, a reporter for the Independent, wrote about “why this idyllic region of Slovenia is making a name in the world of tourism”. She appears utterly infatuated with the Vipava Valley. In fact, only a few days ago, Ms Coffey described in her article “Why the Vipava Valley should be top of your Slovenian travel bucket list” her first-hand experience with our Paradise Valley. Her inspiring account is the best reference letter imaginable. Thank you, Ms Coffey!
