Only one hour drive from the city life of Ljubljana, you can indulge yourself in the peace, quiet and the beauty of the south-western Slovene town of Vipava. This lovely place is located near the numerous sources of the Vipava River. And so is a restaurant and pension Podfarovž! The amazing landscape, exceptionaly good local food and wine, together with the easy pace, will be more than enough to spoil you for at least couple of days!
Vipava – the town on the water
Vipava is a town in the upper Vipava Valley. To Slovenes it is known as a historical heart of the fertile, wine-rich region of the Vipava Valley (Vipavska Dolina). Because of the Vipava River running through the town, and the charming bridges accross the river, some call Vipava a little »Slovenia’s countryside Venice«.
The sound of the water gushing from the springs gives the city a pure touch of magic. The view of the stone houses wrapped with green wine leaves takes a breath away. This is when you think – stay here at least for few days.
Idyllic Vipava has many great features. It is developed beside numerous springs of the Vipava River, and the feel of the city is calm and relaxing, almost zen like.
Podfarovž – a full wine&food experience, with fine lodging
Therefore, we decided to book a room at Podfarovž, a beautifully set restaurant, hidden behind the main square, right on the one of the springs of the Vipava River. Podfarovž is also a very know restaurant in the Vipava Valley, serving some great local specialties.
But they also have nice apartments above the restaurants, with some really amazing views at the spectacular surroundings. The apartment we stayed in was spotless and the owners were extremely friendly.
