Hotels in Slovenia

Dobra Vila

One of the most beautiful hotels in Slovenia, Dobra Vila is also a very rare thing indeed: a Slovenian name with a double meaning ('Good House' or 'Good Fairy').

Accommodation

All of the rooms are beautifully designed and furnished. Some have galleries with beds for the kids, which are great for families, while couples get a choice of sumptuous double rooms. All rooms have en suite baths or showers, which are very tasty indeed.

Dining

Matjaž and Juri have extended their style and panache to the restaurant by drafting in some of the best chefs in the region, who cook in a manner that befits such a fabulous establishment: a mix of traditional and modern with a creative twist.

As well as the deco-styled dining room and the glass-enclosed verandah, there is a large dining terrace where you can while away sultry summer evenings with some of the best views in Slovenia.

We guarantee the best rates offered by Dobra Vila, at any time of the year.

Dobra Vila was fantastic. We loved every minute and felt like we were visiting old friends. We had an incredible meal and retired to the library for wine and dessert. lovely music playing. Have already recommended it to many friends.
Slovenia is a truly wonderful country. Beautiful mountains, stunning countryside, beautful food and friendly people. It is a quiet country, though, so if hustle and bustle is your thing, you might want to look elsewhere, but for me at that ... perfect!
As were Slovene Dream.
Thank you, Bob.

Thanks so much for finding Dobra Vila for us - it was one of the most memorable hotels we've stayed in and really made a huge difference to our holiday. We are looking forward to returning to it very much and will recommend you strongly to our friends. Have got your brochure, which is beautiful - and look forward very much to returning to Slovenia.

Dobra Vila was fantastic. We were made to feel really welcome, despite having 2 kids in what is a very smart boutique hotel. On the last day our older daughter Leah was given a guided tour - and a bar of chocolate! - by the lovely hotel manager Andreja. I think that made her holiday.

I have already recommended this hotel, and the local area, with great enthusiasm to several friends since I returned. It is wonderfully situated, with stunning views of the mountains all around, but very convenient for Bovec. The hotel itself is stylish, elegant and beautifully furnished; the bedrooms are a great pleasure to spend time, and the food and wine is very good indeed. The staff are good-humoured and very friendly and helpful. Given the standard of accomodation, food and service it is also very reasonably priced.
