The area around Bovec is among of the most beautiful in the country, with soaring mountains, green valleys, and the copper blue waters of the Soča making it a much-sought holiday location for those with an interest in the great outdoors. The landscape here is stunning, and beyond the views it affords a huge range of opportunities to get out and enjoy yourself. From hiking to biking, canyoning to kayaking, fishing to skiing, paragliding to painting, and much more besides, the area is set up for visitors and residents to take advantage of the natural wonders and find some peace away from the cities and towns, while still only being an hour or so from Ljubljana Airport, and 90 minutes from the Adriatic coast.
This week’s property puts you right in the middle of all this, being a three-floor house in the village of Kal Koritnica. It was built just over 50 years ago and requires some minor renovations, and is essentially open to however you’d like to live in a space that currently has two bedrooms and potential for a third. It’s on the market for just €55,000, and is being handed by Think Slovenia, who describe it as follows:
Traditional detached house on the edge of a peaceful village of Kal Koritnica, only 3 km from Bovec. The house occupies three floors with storage and heating rooms in the basement, entry room, kitchen with dining area, bathroom and two bedrooms on the first floor and an attic that could be converted into additional living space. It is surrounded by a small garden with a woodshed.
The region offers numerous activities from skiing in the winter on the Kanin ski resort in Bovec which is connected to Sella Nevea to fantastic hiking and mountain biking on the surrounding Julian Alps or enjoying numerous seasonal sports on the breath-taking Soča river. The town of Bovec, with all its amenities and good restaurants, is only 3 km away, whilst Kal Koritnica also has a good local restaurant. The house is in need of renovations and modernisation, but would make a lovely holiday home with good rental potential.
