About Us

WHY WE ARE UNIQUE...

We have taken the deservedly popular concept of a luxury chalet holiday, as often enjoyed by winter sports enthusiasts, and adapted the idea for biking holidays. In brief, this means you stay in a grand old villa (Marchal Tito's villa), with truly personal service, luxury accommodation and superb food - in our view an essential part of any biking holiday! Each day you have an excellent breakfast, followed by the option of enjoying an accompanied biking with Slovenian Champion Tadej Valjavec (5 days a week). On your return you are served tea with homemade slovenian specialities (štruklji, pečena kaša z jabolki, štrudelj,…), and after a couple of hours to relax, (hot tube under the open sky, sauna, dreinagge therapy, massage - optional), you are offered  a delicious 3 course dinner using mainly local ingredients. Quality wine is served free of charge during dinner, and you eat in traditional  restored  room, with beautiful view.

 

In addition, staying in one centre allows you to completely relax and unwind – no tedious packing and unpacking, no valuable holiday time wasted waiting for transport, no deadline to have to bike a certain distance to get to your next bed… instead you just leave everything to us, so you can relax and enjoy every minute of your holiday! The entire house is non-smoking.
