Look at the world from a bee’s perspective

In the green Savinja Valley you can transform yourself into a bee and live among the shelter of honeycombs. No problem – these are the honeycomb-shaped cabins in Honey Village in Mozirje, whose interiors provide all the comforts you could wish for. As is fitting for a place called Honey Village, you will find honey and bee products at every step.  Including when you are pampering yourself. Enjoy a honey massage for one or for couples, give your face its youthful character with honey masks, and if you need extra power try a honey-based energy drink.
