Hemingway House Holiday Apartments is a 19th century townhouse in the centre of Kobarid which has been transformed into five unique self-contained apartments.
There is a very large free car parking place directly across the street from the house and another 4 free parking areas within a minutes walk of the house. I have left my own car there for years without any problems.
The Attic Suite covers the entire top floor of the house and comfortably sleeps five adults.
Its boasts an enormous main room (80sqm) with a vaulted ceiling which incorporates the original wooden roof beams and walls which have sections of exposed stone, giving the apartment a romantic rustic charm.
The room has been divided into two sections. On one side is a queen sized bed (160 x 200) with antique bedside tables. And a living area with a sofa bed which pulls out to sleep two adults comfortably (160 x 200). There is a large wardrobe and antique pine chester drawers to store clothing.
There is also a powerful wood burning stove and if you are chilly I can come up and set a fire for you and provide you with wood to keep it going.
On the otherside of the room is the Kitchen/Dining Area. The Kitchen has a large granite worktop which doubles as a breakfast bar which seats two. There is a 4 ring gas hob, electric oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, kettle, toaster, electric mixer, blender, Bodum french press and Bialetti coffee makers and cooking equipment and crockery for six people. There are also a set of plastic tableware for children.
There is a dining table that seats six people and there is enough spare space around it for you to position it how ever you like best. There is also an uplighter lamp if you would prefer a more romantic atmosphere.
Off the main room is a hallway with a wrought iron and wood balcony which leads to the little bedroom on one end and the bathroom on the other. All of these rooms also have vaulted ceilings with original wood beams. The little bedroom has a single bed.
The Attic Suites are accessed via a staircase off the upper terrace and the suite has its own private lockable entrance.

It consists of tea, coffee, hot milk, juice, fresh fruits, museli and corn flakes, yogurt, breads, meats, cheeses and a boiled egg.

I have tried to make this apartment a home away from home for guests and I wish you a very happy stay here in the Soca Valley.

Hemingway House has two terraces from which to admire the stunning mountain views visible from them.
There is a large garden which has a BBQ and 2 picnic tables, as well as 3 sun loungers for you to relax on. And I've planted a herb garden and so guests can cook with fresh herbs.
To the rear of the property is a large secure barn where you can store larger sports equipment, kayaks, paragliders, bicycles etc. On the top floor, I would be more than happy to dry out wet clothes (and even tents) on your behalf.

I live at the house and I've been told on more than one occassion that I'm a fount of knowledge about the local area and what can be done here.
I have thoroughly explored my new homeland and the surrounding countries, particularly Italy, and I'm very happy to share my ideas of where to go etc with my guests.
Andre ting, der er værd at bemærke
The prices do not include the local tourist tax which costs €1.27 per adult and 0.64 for children (3 to 18) per night.
I offer discounts to guests wanting to stay for 7 nights or longer via the "special offer" booking facility.
The house is situated in a residental area, so I would ask guests to keep quiet after 10:30 pm in the garden or on the terraces.

I am a Canadian who came to Slovenia on a holiday back in 2007 and feel in love with the beauty of the Soca Valley.
When I returned to London where I was living at the time, I decided that there had to be more to life than working 9 to 5 marketing a law firm. And spurred on by numerous property development programs I decided that I would be the one person alive who could move to a foreign country where I didn't speak the language and renovate a dilapidated house into a bed and breakfast without too much hassle, bearing in mind I had no DIY experience whatsoever.
Need we say things didn't go as planned but after two years I was able to transform a total ruin into a very liveable three bedroom house, in the lovely village of Ciginj, which is available for renting on this site.
Shortly after I finished renovating this house, a property in Kobarid became available and I decided to sell my house in Ciginj to a guest who stayed in the house and loved it and turn my hand at another renovation project.
Two years later, my vision was realised and Hemingway House is now open for business.
Along the way, I've made numerous great friends over here, improved my knowledge on how to renovate stone houses as well as the art of plastering, tiling, painting and whole host of other DIY skills.
I have just finished renovating a total ruin up in the picturesque village of Livek, which overlooks the Soca Valley, just above Kobarid into a magnificent farmhouse with 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a massive open planned kitchen /living area, with a 45sqm terrace with a fantastic view of Krn which is also available for rent on this site.
I am living proof that you can realise your dream if you have the stupidity, courage and determination to see it through.
And, now I plan to have rest and go travelling once more come the autumn...through Turkey, Azerbijan, Armenia and Georgia.
