With easy access to the vibrant city of Nova Gorica and the fabulous surrounding countryside, a holiday at The Old House really does offer the best of both worlds. The apartment is in the peaceful rural village of Orehovlje, just 15 minutes from Nova Gorica while nearby, you can indulge in any number of outdoor activities. The Slovenian coast is an hour’s drive away and definitely worth a visit.

The house was recently renovated by a family member who is an architect, which is apparent through the level of detail and care put into the project. With 2 bedrooms and a spacious terrace, the apartment is an excellent option for a family or for two couples. Interiors are simply furnished but everything, from air conditioning to storage and convenient parking, is in place to ensure a comfortable and relaxing stay.

The ground floor (35m²) comprises an open plan living and dining room, with modern kitchen, and access to a large terrace (25m²). The two bedrooms and one bathroom are on the upper floor, which also provides access to a balcony.

Getting here is easy. If you’re arriving from overseas, there’s a good choice of nearby airports, including Treviso and Trieste. However, even if you’re flying, the chances are you’ll want to pick up a rental car to explore the area. Parking is hassle free thanks to a convenient parking spot just across the road from the apartment.

For train aficionados, there’s also the option of the iconic UNESCO World Heritage listed Bohinj Railway to Nova Gorica. Rated as the top rail experience in Slovenia, the journey passes through the famous Bohinj tunnel and the Solkan Bridge.

Full story

Nova Gorica is one of Slovenia’s hidden gems, a university town that simultaneously offers cultural attractions and access to a whole range of superb outdoor activities. In fact, the town has been deservedly nominated as a European Capital of Culture in 2025, a factor that will doubtless add further to its popularity.

Location

Whether you’re into culture, nature, adventure activities or simply relaxing on a beach, the village of Orehovlje is a superb base for exploring western Slovenia.

A holiday at The Old House Nova Gorica presents the perfect opportunity to combine the very best of the area. The apartment is in the peaceful village of Orehovlje, immersed in the magnificent natural beauty of western Slovenia yet just 15 minutes by car from the cultural attractions of Nova Gorica and within easy reach of the coast.

Nova Gorica and surroundings – cultural attractions

Nova Gorica is Slovenia’s youngest town, founded in 1948. The old town of Gorica (today Gorizia) was assigned to Italy and the new modern town of Nova Gorica started to take shape. The town is renowned for its multiple rose bushes and in fact has the second largest collection of Bourbon Roses in Europe. Over the centuries, it has been shaped by Germanic, Romance and Slavic influences but today it feels like a cosmopolitan city, with outstanding restaurants, bars, entertainment venues and a casino culture.

Spanned by the Solkan railway bridge, the largest stone arch in the world, the dazzling Soča river (the ‘Emerald Beauty’) is a good place to start exploring the region’s history and culture. Above the river, Sabotin hill is the perfect starting point for delving into the past. The hill is punctuated with systems of ditches and caverns built by the Austro-Hungarian and Italian armies, but it also provides superb views over Sveta Gora, the Vipava Valley, the Karst and the Julian Alps.

Castles are always fun for kids and there are plenty to choose from! Just across the border into Italy, 11th century Gorizia Castle is now home to the Museum of the Middle Ages. And 13th century Rihemberk Castle, 20 minutes from Nova Gorica, is a superb showpiece of Karst architecture and culture. A little further afield, Predjama castle and Postojna cave are less than an hour’s drive away and easily do-able together in one day. For more castles – and some excellent wine-tasting! – head into the Vipavaska valley.

Nova Gorica – for outdoor activities

Start by exploring your local surroundings with a pleasant 20-minute walk from the apartment to Monastery Kostanjevica. Leave your walk till early evening and you have a good chance of being treated to some splendid sunset views. A more intense hiking trail with great views leads to Sveta Gora (682m) where there’s a Franciscan monastery and a restaurant.
For fantastic hiking and cycling, as well as more adventurous activities, including rafting, kayaking, ziplining and climbing, head to the River Soča where the Soča Fun Park is an added attraction for kids.

Coastal attractions

Join the locals from Nova Gorica and head for the Italian coastal towns of Sistiana and Devin for a day at the seaside.

Eating and drinking

For a truly authentic experience, head to one of the many local farms where you’ll find a whole host of superb culinary and wine-tasting experiences. Close to the apartment, some of our favorite restaurants include Tavern Ošterija Žogica in Solkan, and in Nova Gorica, Bar Fabrika for gin and burgers, and Rusa House for pizza.
