About the neighbourhood
Herons' Place is ideal for large families. It is in a quiet valley, surrounded by mountains and is excellent for walking, hiking, skiing, rafting, horse riding etc. or taking it easy in the garden. There are many areas of local interest, including outstandingly beautiful valleys, interesting museums, great value restaurants, towns and spas. You will find plenty of information available in the house about Slovenia: places to go and things to do.You typically see much wildlife around the house, including deer, buzzards and herons. You only have a 5 minute walk to the riverside pub that serves excellent fresh trout, and a 15 minute walk to the nearest small supermarket. The cost of living in Slovenia is exceptionally reasonable making eating out very affordable.
