Hotels in Slovenia
If we were some kind of silly PR agency promoting hotels of a similar kind to this one, we'd probably call them 'gastrotels'. But we're not, so we won't.
But we will say that this is a perfectly formed little hotel, that happens to have a fine restaurant. Very fine. But not so fine that they don't want to pass on their secrets, as chef Uroš Štefelin runs cookery classes - especially for kids.
There are just five double rooms and two suites at Vila Podvin - each styled in cool, modern colours. The beds are swathed in fine linens, the bathrooms awash with alpine water and the windows give views across this beautiful alpine countryside.
Certainly the star of the show at Vila Podvin is the restaurant. Owner Uroš Štefelin is one of a select few of Slovenia's modern chefs who are in the vanguard of the country's foody revolution.
Probably, Uroš would want to say it's more of an evolution, as he bases everything on tradtional cuisine and locael produce, and adds his own personal touch to bring them into the 21st century.
A really nice touch is that you can order a typical Slovenian three course lunch for 15 euros, or get funky with a gourmet four course lunch for 39 euros. Instead of the next few thousand words, look at these...
