Tech-free Alpine bliss in the picturesque valley of Jezersko, Slovenia

Step away from city life and into the tranquil solace of Vila Planinka. Warm woods and honey tones beckon you in from the cool outdoors, with a promise of relaxation, recuperation and the thrill of shared discovery. This is a place where connections don’t come from cables – but from people, earth and nature. 

Harmoniously designed with natural woods, stone and textiles, the shared areas are comfortable and open plan. Neutral hues flow through the rooms, all characterised by local touches – a call back to Jezersko’s cultural heritage. And each space makes the most of the majestic mountain scenery. Balancing modernity and tradition, tech comes in second place to exploration.

Surrounded by centuries-old forests, mountains and waterways, the ambience of Vila Planinka is one of powerful peacefulness. It is said that the four natural energy points around the hotel can aid with mental and physical wellbeing – which, alongside the stunning scenery and local outdoor pursuits, is a recipe for the most curative of getaways. And, when you’ve finished your day exploring the sights, sounds and snow-capped mountains of Jezersko, head to the restaurant for exquisite seasonal dishes and rare vintages from sustainable vineyards.

Environment

Environmentally Conscious

Sustainability flows through every element of Vila Planinka, like the mineral-rich, natural Jezersko spring water bottled on-property. The plastic-free, zero-waste hotel supports various reforestation charities, including a local tree-planting project in Jezersko Valley, and exclusively nurtures native alpine flora in its organic gardens (home to over 100 different plant species). Eco-friendly transport is available in collaboration with Go Green, in addition to e-chargers in the hotel’s car park – but guests are mostly encouraged to explore Jezersko’s great outdoors on foot. Cooling breezes from the Skuta Glacier keep the air-conditioning-free rooms nicely chilled in the summer, bedding is dried in the fresh mountain air, and low-flow showers plus low-consumption toilets in the bathrooms help save water. Vila Planinka also fights against light pollution (supporting the local late-night lighting restrictions) to ensure the sky remains naturally starry.

Culture

Cultural Custodians

The hotel’s carefully restored interiors are a window into Slovenia’s past, and local artisans were closely involved from the beginning – who crafted the stone walls, bespoke furniture, and Jezersko-inspired decoration throughout Vila Planinka (some of the artworks are available to buy in the hotel’s boutique). Local materials were used during the renovation, such as covering the roofs with larch wood (prompting several neighbouring farmers to do the same to their roofs), and over 60 centuries-old objects are displayed within the hotel - including wooden Bloke skis, peasant storage chests, blueberry rakes, and a 200-year-old Pležuh (traditional ski seat). Each room is named after flora and fauna found in the area, like the rare and protected orchid known as Lady’s Slipper. You can read up on the Jezersko Valley by leafing through the nature-focused books in your room, which have been especially written for Vila Planinka guests.

Community

Community Minded

Vila Planinka is well and truly embedded within the close-knit Jezersko community, and vice versa – you can meet the locals in the hotel’s kitchen, chat with them in the restaurant, and learn about their way of life through an array of locally-led activities. Ask the friendly team about guided night hikes and stargazing, climbing tours, forest bathing and yoga, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing (while educating locals against the environmentally-harmful, unsustainable process of artificial snowmaking), visits to local farms and rural granaries with cheese tastings, and organic wine tastings. Many of these artisanal growers and farmers supply the hotel’s restaurant, which works closely with nearby eco-farms to source alpine-fresh produce (alongside over 1,000 edible herbs in the Jezersko Valley), keeping food miles to a minimum. The extensive wine list (over 250 labels) exclusively features Slovenian biodynamic wines, for guests to get an authentic taste of the region.

Vila Planinka

Mountains with heart

The romance of the mountains after sunset is unmatched. Fill your evening with stars as you embark on a night-time hike through the valley to a peak with unspoiled sky views. Join Vila Planinka’s experienced mountain guide as you seek out the constellations of immortalised mythical lovers Cassiopeia and Cepheus, or simply soak up the ambience of nature at its best. All before heading back to the hotel for a fireside reception.

 
Vila Planinka

Here be dragons…

Step carefully as you discover the Postojna Caves. Home to the world famous ‘baby olms’, these mysterious dragons (well, aquatic salamanders) have inhabited the caves for over 20 million years. An all-day VIP excursion will take you on a once-in-a-lifetime underground train ride through the caves, and you to the largest cave castle in the world – Predjama Castle - where you’ll learn secrets and legends, with unique extras when you book as Vila Planinka guests.

Food And Drinks

Locally sourced, organic and traditional – this is Alpine authenticity plated up to perfection. The ever-changing menu is a love letter to the seasons, reflected in the purity and richness of the freshly gathered ingredients. Simple yet sophisticated, this Michelin-recommended restaurant puts sustainability first, focusing on products of Slovenian origin made by controlled organic suppliers. Meat and dairy products are sourced from cattle and sheep grazing on Alpine pastures, and the wine list is nothing short of exceptional, emphasising orange wines from sustainable vineyards.

Restavracija Vila Planinka
