Cosy and gourmet in Nova Gorica
The city of youth, as we like to call Nova Gorica, lies between two of Slovenia’s best wine-growing regions – the Vipava Valley and Goriška Brda. They are home to premium wines and excellent cuisine, and the mild Mediterranean climate allows visitors to actively explore the surroundings all year round.
Nova Gorica also boasts a Michelin star restaurant. The Dam Hotel and Restaurant, where Uroš Fakuč creates his dishes, is a perfect haven for gourmets and anyone seeking modern charm and creativity. It offers a feast for all the senses, whether in the rooms or the dining room.
Boutique and cosy with a touch of nostalgia in Slovenj Gradec
The Koroška region is a treasure trove of experiences, both in its pristine nature, rich in forests, and in towns with rich historical and cultural heritage. A stroll through the medieval town of Slovenj Gradec reveals a number of interesting facts from the past and introduces some of the famous residents who carried the name of this town into the world.
Part of this past is also the more than 200-year-old town house in the centre of the town, which has now been converted into a boutique hotel. Hiša Ančka offers a cosy haven for travellers with its superior rooms and suites and a restaurant full of gourmet dishes and pizzas prepared in the Neapolitan style.
