About Steve Woods

I am a professional man from the West country. I discovered Slovenia whilst on a motor bike trip in 2005.

I was particularly enchanted with the Soca valley and especially the delightful little town of Bovec. After one or two holidays there I ended up buying a property. With the help of local tradesmen and contacts the house was extensively renovated over the next year and I have subsequently rented it to many guests from a variety of countries, for both Summer and Winter holidays, including members of the film crew working on the recent "Narnia" film, some of the scenes of which were filmed nearby. Judging from comments in the visitors book, pretty well everyone shares my enthusiasm for this beautiful area and have found the house to be a welcoming and pleasant place to stay.

Steve Woods purchased this house in 2005

Awesome house, fun adventure town

  • 5 of 5

The house was very upscale, large, and was equipped with everything you might need. Unfortunately some small things were not maintained such as burnt out lights and remotes that did not work...but the positives of the house easily made up for that. Nice collection of books. Bovec was very walk-able (10 minutes from the house to the other end) which was great and allowed you to easily pick up groceries, bread, and enjoy the other shops whenever the urge hit. We enjoyed the rafting, canyoning, hiking, and zip-lining and still had lots of potential adventure activities for which we did not have time.

Beautiful chalet, great location

  • 5 of 5

Chalet Bovec is a beautiful chalet set deep in the Soca Valley in Slovenia. The surrounding area is absolutely stunning, and home to many great activities like hiking, canyoning, zip-lining and skiing - we particularly loved the white-water rafting on the bright blue river that flows through the valley. The chalet itself is spacious and homely, with everything you could possibly need, including lots of books, games and guides to the area, and the locals are friendly and helpful. We had a fantastic time, and I can't recommend it more - we'll be back for the ski season!

Adrenaline and adventure!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in Bovec and having this beautiful, cosy house as our base made it all the more perfect! We had an action packed week, making the most of the summer activities by doing rafting, canyoning and ziplining! We also drove to Most Na Soci one day to get the car train to lake Bohinj and lake Bled which was a great day out. The town of Bovec really is a hidden gem and we will certainly be coming back in the winter season one year to check out the skiing. The house was brilliant, with everything we needed. The bath is especially nice for a long soak after getting freezing in the Soca! It is also a great location for nipping to the bakery (which seems to be open ALL the time) or the supermarket to stock up.

Many thanks for letting us stay, we'll be back!

Nice flat, in a good location

  • 4 of 5

The flat is perfect for a group or family with plenty of living and sleeping space and was very clean. The check in was very easy and we really enjoyed the flat. The location was perfect for walking into the main town of Bovec and to reach any of the outfitters. Steve was very responsive.
