A very big house in the country

The Logar Valley is a beautiful and protected area in Slovenia. The area is actually three glaciated valleys, surrounded by steep-sided rocky mountains.

This is perfect walking country, with way-marked routes, but in common with such areas in Italy, there is little accommodation in the valleys.

We walked in the Robanov valley, which has been farmed by the same family for over 150 years. They keep cattle and manage the forestry, as well as some low key tourism, including running a fantastic rustic cafe at the head of the valley in July and August, where we enjoyed a refreshing mug of tea with a chunk of lemon.
