I had the chance to discover some good addresses in Slovenia restaurants and hotels. I’ll make you benefit from it if you ever need to look for a place to stay and/or lunch during a stay in the area.

Kitchen side : 

1 – In Kobarid region, you can have lunch or dinner at Hisa Franko’s place. The place is beautiful, cosy and the cuisine ofAna Roš very creative. She works with local, seasonal products and brings her strong personality to it. It’s delicious, sometimes it can be a little too much. More simplicity in the plate (less different tastes) would serve her talent even better in my opinion. But hey, I’m still quibbling.

Note that it will be in 2016 in the Chef’s Table series on Netflix.

2 – Not far from Vipava, in Zemono Castle, we could discover the chef’s kitchen. Tomaž Kavčič in his restaurant Pri Lojzetu. I’m not even trying to figure out how to pronounce name and address, it’s just beyond my possibilities 🙂

Heir of a family dynasty with a gourmet tendency, close to slow food, he regaled us with his inspired cuisine.  We fell in love with his crayfish gnocchi (to fall on the floor).

3 – Another greedy address that I wanted to share, that of the chef. Jezeršek in Cerklje na Gorenjskem. In this establishment, which combines hotel, restaurants, cooking academy, you will discover the true taste of Slovenia. The cuisine is either gastronomic or local, depending on what you choose. We have tried the local version with dishes to share. Very nice.

4 – And finally last address, last but not least, Dobra Vila in Bovec. This establishment has a lot of charm. The owner, who previously worked in the fashion industry, has a lot of taste. The place is superb. On the kitchen side, it’s classic but rather well done.

Hotel side

1 – For family vacations in the mountains, I liked the Tourist Farm Kranjc and especially the breakfast where EVERYTHING is homemade. It’s just crazy. The lady has a scullery full of canned food prepared in the summer. I would have loved to learn how to do all this with her.

The fall colors were there beautiful:

2 – For a night with your partner, why not test the Glamping (Glamorous camping) in Bled?

I loved the cozy little nest hut effect. Only one complaint, they are a little close together except one. It’s this one, out of sight, that I would advise you to reserve. Glamping Ribno – Bled

3 – For traditional campingA great address: Kamp Vrhpolje. We spent a wonderful late afternoon at the home of absolutely adorable people who love to receive and share. Chestnuts, wine, potica, ham, they had put the small dishes in the big ones with a lot of generosity. This made us all want to spend a vacation here.

4 – For the charm, the old-fashioned chic, the old-fashioned side and the breathtaking view, do not hesitate to take a night (ask absolutely for the lake view) at the Grand Hotel Toplice.

I felt like diving into the heart of the film The Grand Budapest Hotel.

5 – And finally, for the geographical situation at the end of the world, for the breakfasts where EVERYTHING is made IN HOUSE, for the kindness of the reception, I advise you this last hotel, Sanje ob Soči.

In short, there are some nice proposals to discover on the spot.
