savudrija/slovenia trip late August 2013 - 10-12 days

We would like to combine a stay at the Kempinski doing very little (!)with some time seeing something of Slovenia - especially Lake Bled -and being more active ie kayaking, swimming, white watering maybe. We aim to fly in and out of Venice and rent a car. Via Michelin seems to suggest about 3.5 hours to drive from Venice to either Savudrija or Bled. Can anyone advise us on this please or share experiences. We are a family of 4 including 2 teenage daughters. We have stayed at the Kempinski before but have only ever been as far as Portorož for an evening. We didn't really like Portoroz - too touristy & flashy - but are looking forward to seeing what Slovenia has to offer beyond this. Would prefer to drive for less than 3.5 hours after flying but I think we have no option.

Many thanks

Hi Edwina

I'm with you about that, Portoroz is somewhat flashy - just expensive hotels and the beach and not much more to offer. Have you visited Izola or Piran - they are much nicer with interesting architecture, narrow streets etc.

However, if you want to see more of the real Slovenia then yes, it would be a good idea to go elsewhere and Bled and Bohinj should be high on your list, as should Radovljica where I live - one of the 3 best preserved medieval old town centres in Slovenia, and you could also stop at Skofja Loka too, its worth a look. You might be interested in reading my blog where I write about the various places I've been and give ideas for things to see and do in this area - http://adeleinslovenia.wordpress.com/
