The veg patch has been a real challenge for me. Constantly admiring other peoples neat rows and sqaures of perfect produce and wondering if I can ever aspire to that. The Casa Rosa patch has not been pretty to say the least but in amongst the relentless weeds. There has been some amount of success. Trillions of yellow courgettes, cucumbers and and lots of salad. Some misshapen carrots, a huge parsley bush, beans galore, and one or two butternut on their way. Not to mention the entire field of potatoes. So not to bad really, however my dream to provide veg boxes for guests may have been a bit ambitious and reality amounted to a couple of courgettes or some salad.
The plums were made into delicious
Not to forget the pots outside the house, containing Chillies, strawberries and cherry tomatoes.

'It was brilliant, I spent rather a lot of the week terrified as I am scared of heights! Canyoning on the first day, hydro-speeding on the second, lots of hikes on the edge of the mountains etc-It was great fun!!!
Slovenia is absolutely stunning, Bovec is a lovely town. Thanks for letting us stay in your lovely house it's been the icing on the cake.'
'What an brilliant week in an amazing place, like a hidden gem. Loved the Soca Valley and the Zuca. The gorge in Zuca is well worth a visit. The pool and rock jump are great. Mini rafting was also Excellent. Woo hoo, I'll come back.'
'An amazing house in a lovely village, everyone stopped to say hello. I hope future guests enjoy this place as much as we have.'
'Lovely apartment, stunning location. We had a great time. We highly recommend canyoning the Susec and hydro-speeding the Soca. Istrian coast is also beautiful, especially Piran. We also did a day trip to lake Bled. had a great holiday and Casa Rosa was teh perfect base to explore what Slovenia has to offer.'

'The appartment was amazing and so are the surroundings!!! Slovenia and the Soca are beautiful. First time here but definately NOT the last. Future guests must try out some of the activities on the Soca. We used Soca rafting and went kayaking and hydro-speeding-both were good fun especially as we got our own guide between the two of us.
Lake Bled is also worth a day trip-we took the car train there and back (18 Euros) which gave us plenty of time to look around the castle and the lake.'
Lara and Jon 15-22.07

Having spent two days watching a plane take-off, full of people prepared to fling themselves out of the door and fall hurtling towards the ground before opening an umbrella, well parachute. I was just still not sure if I was up to the challenge or not. The fantastic instructor Jason Snailham was doing a great job at giving people the experience of a life-time, and after all he was here for just two days but it just seemed it wasn't for me, maybe next time. I did, however like the idea of the plane ride, through the Stunning Soca valley. So on enquiring about the possibility of this I was assured that sitting in the back of the plane (now void of jumpers) landing again with the door open would not be much fun for a passenger. Never mind, there are other tour planes in the valley. i would get another chance. I would have to make do with a picture from the ground....
Well just before the plane was due to fly onwards to Czech republic I was invited to be a passenger on the test flight which would determine the planes maneuverability within the valley. This in view of a return trip to the valley as a permanent feature and addition to the valleys already awesome selection of extreme sports. Well the flight was incredible and here is just some of what I saw....
The Boka waterfall.....
The Turquoise Soca River....
Gorenje Zaga, the setting for Casa Rosa....
Bovec and the Airfield.
The flight was sensational and with ever moment I was reminded of just how beautiful and unique place the Soca Valley is!

'What a great Chalet for holidays and fun summer and winter. Went up Kanin for 2 days skiing. Great fun. Loads of booze food and silly games. Lovely friendly neighbors and beautiful place to relax.'
Meredith Turnbull Dec 2008
'Had a great stay. Boarded in Austria, Italy and Slovenia. Up to our waists in snow. Lovely house.'
Bob and Michael Feb 2009
'Perfect weather skiid Kanin and Tarvisio. We could see the sea from the top of Kanin. The view from the top of Monte Lussaro in Tarvisio has to be seen to be believed. This is also the start of the downhill run which must be skiid.
The house is perfect and so comfortable. It feels like summer in the valley and winter in the mountains.'
Tom and Robin March 2009
'Came for easter weekend. Had a days skiing on Kanin and lots of lazying by the river. Weather was stunning. The Soca Valley is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been and will most certainly be coming back.'
Victoria Pitstra April 2009
'Great to be back in the Soca Valley. Just as spectacular as I remembered it. A very relaxed, warm and sunny week with lots of good food. We also had time for our first camping trip of the year at lake Bohinj. We will definately be back to swim in the georgeous river!'
