What about the Balkans next year to get your fill of culture and natural beauty? If you head that way, put Slovenia on your list! let us tell you why you should put Slovenia on your list! Even better visit the BIGBERRY resort!
During this past summer, we spent a month in Slovenia. We traveled around the country enjoying all it had to offer. We had a blast and we fell in love with the country after just a few days. This is a country that is beautifully green, with mountains, lakes, rivers, and forests everywhere!
The people are friendly and most speak English pretty well. You can also find good value since Slovenia is not a super popular tourist destination. So during our stay, we were able to spend several days at BIGBERRY which is an amazing eco-resort concept that works with local producers and business to deliver an authentic experience to its guests. Here’s why you should visit BIGBERRY if you go to Slovenia.
The staff at BIGBERRY are not like your ordinary hotel workers. They are all creative people and passionate about hospitality. After arriving we felt welcomed and comfortable. You will quickly get the impression that everyone that is a part of BIGBERRY is there to help you and make sure that you have a good time. This was super refreshing.
Earlier we mentioned that BIGBERRY has various activities that you can take advantage of which involve the local community and producers. These activities include:
- dining at specially selected restaurants
- learning about the food and cooking style of Slovenia
- visiting interesting buildings that are full of history
- visits to areas of natural beauty that only the locals know of
We were able to do many activities and meet many cool people that make up the local community. We wouldn’t trade these experiences for anything.
The local surroundings of BIGBERRY are absolutely stunning! BIGBERRY is situated on a river that divides Slovenia and Croatia. There are several little houses that serve as accommodation. These look out onto the river and are perfectly situated. The location is perfect for taking peaceful walks, swimming in the river or doing some kayaking. There are also many spaces where you can just pull up a chair and read a book or bask in the sun. To say that you’ll be relaxed is an understatement. Aside from the actual grounds are the surrounding villages and towns. It’s a picturesque area that will give you a good sense of the local culture and people.
