What Past Guests Are Saying
Familiy and sport vacations
In august 2013 we spent 10 beautiful days in Chalet Soca. There were 6 adults and 1 two-year-old Kid. The house and surrounding is absolutely fantastic. We had a great time there. We tried rafting, kayaking (twice), have done a lot of biking, has climbed on Krajcarica Wall (multipitch), and done hiking on Jalovec. Chalet is very good for the Kid (it has so many rooms, corridoros, floors) -our young one has never been bored! Before coming to Zaga we were afraid that there will be no space to walk in the house vicinity - in fact there is a good asphalt loop around the houses - so you can use bogie and have a nice walk. Living 7 km form Bovec is fully compansated by the cosyness and mountain atmosphere of the Chalet-Soca. We all do really recommend this place both for families with children as well as for strong sport oriented groups.

Wee appointed accommodation in area with diverse appeal
Thanks Bevan and Jo. You really spoilt is with your fabulous chalet. It is so well appointed, clean and beautifully decorated. We needed a lot more time to explore and will definitely be back if we can.
Die Ferien im Chalet Soca haben uns sehr gefallen. Das Haus war liebevoll eingerichtet, alles was man brauchte, war vorhanden. Vorteil des Hauses, viele Schlafmöglichkeiten und 3 Badezimmer. Ich würde das Haus jederzeit weiter empfehlen, so wie auch die Vermieter, welche sich immer Zeit genommen haben für die vielen Fragen :-)
Lovely House, great venue, perfect for paddlers!
We had a lovely stay in Chalet Soca and Chalet Julien with a group of young people from our Youth Club, to paddle on the beautifull Soca river. The houses are a great base for watersports in the valley and are very appointed!
It was a nice stay at the Chalet and will recommend it to anyone who will visit Slovenia. We had a lovely holiday & this is thanks to the nice people we met and a perfect accommodation was an important part of our holiday.
The facilities in the Chalet makes it very easy for a tourist to move in and start enjoying it and the surrounding. It is well equipped as if you are at home. It has nice spacious rooms and situated in a quiet area. It has windows overlooking mountains and rivers. Joe the owner is very organised and offers a five star service to his clients.
It is walking distance from a restaurant which has reasonable prices, great pizzas and good ice cream.
A car is required to go to Bovec centre. It is about 5-7min away.
If interested in doing water sports, Sportmix is the place to go, nice guys and great service. Situated right in the centre of the main Bovec square. www.sportmix.si
Having been to the Chalet now in both autumn and Winter i have had different (although brilliant) experiences each time.
In autumn, the sun is out there are mountains to climb, long beautiful walks and rivers to swim (if you are silly enough). In Winter there are the slopes! Every time i've been i've thought about packing in my job and moving.
The scenery is the killer. I would say unmatched. Then there is the chalet. Once you're there you never want to leave it is so comfortable and homely.
Of course there is Bevan and Jo. You won't find a more warm, friendly and hospitable couple.
Nothing bad to say. It's brilliant!
Could not be happier
A group of us went out there and could not have been happier with the chalet. Excellent location, superb views with very good facilities.
Unique skiing getaway ... and more
The local ski areas provide a surprising variety with some beautiful views and locations and best of all, refreshingly uncrowded pistes, so some great open downhill runs.
There is also a greater variety than usual of non-skiing options too: the chalet is in a spectacular secluded valley with lots of walks, local villages and cafes to explore, and a drive over or train ride through the mountains to Bled.
Finally, Jo and Bevan, as seasoned travellers and adventurers, have plenty of excellent ideas and advice on things to do.
Superb place in the lush green moutain valleay of Bovec
Great place, Yo and Bevan are very nice and the chalet is very cosy and feels like home. We really enjoyed staying here.
A lovely warm and welcoming place to stay to explore the beautiful surroundings of the Soca Valley.
High standard accommodation
Really great apartment with excellent facilities. Great location for the Soca river. Bar / restaurant just across the road is very convenient.
Outstanding maisonette, very well appointed
The chalet has everything you need, is perfectly clean and very comfortable.
- well equipped kitchen
- nice terrace (loved having breakfast there)
- large table for convivial evenings
- great and comfortable couch (Flatscreen with DVD)
- washing machine
- free (and fast) WiFi Internet (Rj-45 as well)
- nice Hi-Fi system (with aUX and iPod dock)
- clean and comfortable rooms
- bike garage
- very good and cheap restaurant ~50m from the chalet
- perfectly located near the soca river
Great for groups from 4 up to 10 people.
A Week Kayaking on the Soca
We had an excellent time. Jo was extremely helpful and responsive on emails. Would recommend having breakfast provided with you on the first morning. Good location for kayaking on the Soca, a quieter and more rural feel than staying in Bovec. Yet still has a pub/restaurant within 2 mins. Can't wait to go back again!
Leeds canoe club
an exellent place to chill after a day kayaking.
This was the second time we stop here and both time found the place very clean and comfy. The owners Jo and Bevan Yates are very easy going and just let you get on we things but are not very far away if required, ample shops around and a very nice Pizzaeria resturant near by, this is a place enjoy.
Fantastic Slovenian Experience
If self-catering accomodation is your thing then you can't go wrong with Chalet Soca. The accomodation is very clean & comfortable with every convenience you could reasonably expect. Our hosts Bevan,Jo and Bob (the sheepdog) were always on hand should we need any assistance but without being intrusive.
With Kanin ski resort 5 minutes down the road and with Italy and austria within easy driving distance there skiing in the area is varied and great.
All in all a fantastic stay.
Our relaxing getaway!!
We love Chalet Soca!! Richard and I have stayed at Jo and Bevans place 4 times now, both in the summer and winter and have thoroughly enjoed all our stays. We feel totally chilled out the minute we arrive until its time to depart (with a tear in our eyes cos we dont want to go!!)
The house is cosy, inviting and warm, the locals are very friendly, the place is calm and relaxing and there is a host of fantastic things to do right on your doorstep.
Check this place out, avoid the rush in the rest of Europe, enjoy the peace and the beautiful destination of Chalet Soca and Slovenia!
As soon as you walk through the front door you feel relaxed.
We had a wonderful time at Chalet Soca. We have stayed 3 times now, and each time it lives up to our expectations. The chalet is so homely and comfortable, and everything you need has been thought of by Jo and Bevan.
The views are stunning, and the best food in the area are a stones throw away at the local restaurant (primostu i think its called).
You won't regret booking Chalet Soca for your next winter or summer break.
A warm welcoming stay in beautiful surroundings!
The Chalet is cosy and comfortable with everything you could want or need for a relaxing time away. The town is within striking distance if you have a car, about 10 min drive. Access to ski slopes are similar distance.
Jo and Bevan give guests a warm welcome and are extremely helpful in every way.
We had a fantastic week away and would recommend it to anyone.
A very homely feel!
As soon as you put your foot throught the door you alrerady feel relaxed. The chalet is great with everything you'll ever need and the view from the bolcony is to die for!. Jo and Bevan are excellent hosts, giving you as much or as little attention as needed. Their knowledge of the local area and best places to ski is fantastic and you can tell they are passionate about what they do. I'd recommend the restaruant which is a 2 walk minute way. The pizzas are the size of a dustbin lid!
perfect location, beautiful atmosphere and awesome countryside . 10 minutes drive and you are in Italy,30 mins your in austria . Sloevnia exceeded my expectations in so many ways , and i would love to go back as soon as i can .
Thanks to Jo and Bevan my stay and experience on the slopes will be something i will never forget .Two thumbs up for this lovely chalet in a really beautiful part of the world .
Cape Town, South Africa
Great value for money, excellent resort options and fantastic guidance from Bevan and Jo.
Accommodation ideal, beautiful setting. Also super safe.
A charming chalet hosted by a couple for whom nothing was too mu
This chalet was modern and comfortable but with character and with great views of mountains and the fabulous river Soca .Hosts Jo and Bevan were ever present with helpful information and lifts but never intrusive . Local knowledge is vital to get the best out of this sort of ski experience ,where we skied in Slovenia , Italy and austria . The chalet is in a friendly village unspoiled by hordes of other tourists but not far from the not very busy town of Bovec . Near the chalet is the local "pub" ,good food at very reasonable prices , I recommend the trout.There is a village shop for fresh bread and more shops and restaurants etc in nearby Bovec . Sking was v. good , varied and relatively quiet .

Very accommodating from beginning to the end
This was one of our best European ski vacations, because the chalet hosts where very accommodating. From being picked up from the airport, taking us to the ski resorts, restaurants, showing us around the ski hill to returning us back to the airport, they were always available. The skiing/boarding was good and that fact that Jo (skier) and Bevin (boarder) were willing to teach us skills that made us better at our sport. They also know the slopes very well and were able to find runs that matched our level. The chalet is close to a local restaurant that had great food, good wine and excellent service. The Chalet was modern and accommodated our group of 6 very easily, we never felt crowded. Very good value for what we invested in the vacation, I hope to come back to see the summer. Thanks Jo and Bevin for a great vacation.
Delighted to be in Slovenia
From the moment Jo & Bevan collect us from Ljubliana airport until it was time to take us back we were so spoilt it was wonderful. Chalet soca is beautiful and comfortable and has everthing we needed. We were ferried to 3 different ski resorts over the 6 days, none of which we'd ever visit before. Kanin is tiny but has lots of variety on and off piste for a couple of days sking, Monte Lussar, Italyi must be the most beautiful mountain village I have ever seen and Nassfeld in austria is huge, can't believe i've never heard of it before! One of the best things was the variety of the skiing and even the drive to the resorts that were further away was interesting as the scenery was so 'awesome'. enjoyed everything!
Quiet unspoilt, far from the crowds, friendly
Well equipped clean chalet will all mod cons in quiet unspoilt location surrounded by dramatic scenery. Jo and Bev were superb hosts, and we had a wonderful week skiing on deserted pistes. We were ferried to and from the slopes in 3 resorts in Slovenia, Italy and austria and guided around the slopes. All in all a very enjoyable holiday.
House is very nice and you feel that you are welcome.
You need car or bike, if you visit Bovec. So, maybe this is only thing, which can be problem. Food is not problem, there is nice restaurant nearby. Overall we like this place very much.
Stunning scenery. Excellent accomodation. Family friendly, helpful hosts with expert snow sports and local knowledge. Great skiing. Good restaurants. Value for money!

Perfect base for kayaking on the Soca!
Wow! What a fantastic chalet this is...it looks great online, but it's even better in real life. It's clean, comfy, well-placed to get to the river (and hills if you're not a paddler) and near to Bovec for shopping and eating out. Great views across the valley - especially from the roof terrace. Plenty room for a group...parking next to the chalet is a little limited if you have more than two cars, but it's only a short walk to park up the hill. I would recommend the chalet to anyone, no hesitation...Jo and Bevan are fabulous hosts and not only keep the place in top-notch condition, they outdoor enthusiasts too, so have plenty great ideas for things to get up to! Awesome :)
My girlfriend&me; stayed @ So?a chalet in begginig of august 2010. At arrival we were first welcomed very kindly by owner Jo, and escorted to the chalet.
We thought pictures of chalet's webpage are fake, it couldn't be that nice. Well we were very, very wrong. Chalet is absolutely amazing, with numerous beautyful details, very spacy, we fell in love with chalet instantly. It is well cleaned and well kept. Spent just 3 days there and were so amazed, not just chalet itself, but also beautyful nature, numerous activites you can do in Bovec, owner kindness, with everything. Chalet has all you need, and is designed with touch of feeling, it really feels like home. You can feel love in the whole chalet.
Why we rated chalet So?a as "Excellent"? Well, just because it simple is. No exaggeration. Vacation there is very suitable for people like us; Bovec offers alot of activities with beautyful nature and mountains all around, in combination with So?a Chalet this is winning combination.
We just can't wait to go to Bovec again :)
Fantastic holidays with great hosts
apartment was very comfortable (more than we expected for that price). quick and reliable contact to hosts. very friendly and nice to drink a wine together. fantastic view. we already recommended the regio and especially the apartment to all our friends.
This chalet is equipped with all comforts with several bathrooms and a wahing machine and even a dishwasher! It was very clean, new, modern in a authentical atmosphere. Enough space for a group or family. Also the lounge area inside and cosy garden was perfect. Big kitchen too! The owners will do everything to make you feel comfortable and can give you good tips for all kind of activities in the area. One minute walking and you will find a cafe (gostilna) where you can eat wonderfull! On top of this you are in the middle of Soca, mountains and national Park. Most beautifull and exciting area of Slovenia.
This chalet at this place makes your stay unforgettable!!
Cosy place to stay
We were at Soca chalet five friends. Everybody liked it. Nice, warm and clean place to stay. Who is looking for a self catered chalet this is a good option. On top floor of the chalet there is a large living area with a waste table you gather and chat and have a snack, The kitchen and on the other side a lazy corner is joint to the area. You can feel nature everywhere and when you open the balcony you have it inside with a nice view in front of you. You need your privacy? You just disappear to your simple sleeping room one floor beneath.
If there would be a door on your bath in the room I would click excellent.
Nevertheless go and try we enjoyed; place overall around is fantastic ...
Living it up in Soca Chalet
Booking made really easy with Jo replying quickly to all e-mails for the booking. After that all requests for help for information and advice that would help our visit were answered equally quickly.
The chalet itself is located about 4 mil;es outside Bovec in a small village called Zaga. The village has a pub and a couple of shops in which you can get all your daily essentials, with Bovec offering a bigger selection only a short drive away.
On arrival we were greeted by Jo and Bevan and they took the time to go through the ammenities and facilities in the chalet. Everything was in tip-top condition of good quality and matching sets of dishes, glasses and cutlery. The chalet had everything we needed and more, cooker , microwave, fridge, tumble dryer, telly, CD player, satellite you name it it was there. The place was immaculate when we arrived and the beds and bedding were very combfortable and clean. The snug room was a favourite place for crashing after a day out, sometimes too good, dragging yourself out the comfy sofa's and cushions was difficult. There was always the balcony to tempt you, with its great views up and down the valley and of the Soca river, a great place to sit with a couple of beers and snacks in the evening before heading out for something to eat.
Over the week we were there nothing was too much trouble for Jo and Bevan, help, advice, assistance, ideas, no problem to them. We spent a few evenings in their company both in the local pub and in the chalet and had great times with them.
Would I recommend Soca Chalet as a place to stay and Jo and Bevan as great hosts, absolutely without a doubt.
Summing up I loved every minute of it and my only regret was leaving to come home

Most friendly and helpful
This was the first time we had visited Slovenia so it was most helpful to find an English/Australian couple able to help us before and during our stay. They were most obliging in providing breakfast and with local knowledge. As fellow walkers they know the area very well and were able to suggest several places to wander. The chalet was most comfortable with every convenience including next door restaurant and swift icy swim adjacent to property. Highly recommended.
Response from Jo Yates - 11/18/2010
Australian......ha ha ha, well Bevan said he has been called worse and at least they make good wine, ever the diplomat, so you're off the hook!
Joking aside, thank you for your kind words, hope to see you again.
We only had a short stay on our travels through Slovenia. After a hectic day of walking or white water rafting, it was absolute bliss to come back to this beautiful chalet. So spacious, homely and relaxing. Jo is a wonderful host and her house is maintained to a high standard. A large supermarket in Bovec provided fresh bread straight from the oven, cheeses and wine which we enjoyed on the terrace. We did find the sitting area too warm as it was very hot at the end of June.
fantastic, stunning accommodation definitely worth a visit
Nothing was too much trouble for Jo and Bevan. They also have great local knowledge which is really helpful when youre not sure where to start in a new area. The accomodation was stunning, the views amazing and there is no shortage of activities to keep you occupied regardless of ability and the season. Overall excellent value for money. Thank you

fun with friends you just met in a home away from home!
We had a great stay with Jo and Bevan. They are very easygoing and make you feel right at home with them. They gave us a great touring experience of northwestern Slovenia, Italy and Austria. They are really fun people and we had a great time! The home is beautifully decorated and meets all the needs you could have, and is nicely situated with walking distance from the local eating and drinking Osteria! It has beautiful views and is very close to the town.
I loved being able to get to know them and their life there, and left feeling like we had made new friends. But in future I think I would take our own car so that we were independant and able to do our own touring in addition if we wanted to.

The Best Stay Ever!!!!
Breath taking is one way to describe it - another more lengthy version is: What a find this place is - we will certainly be returning thats for sure - inside is modern, fresh, and very alpine. Then you look at the views - WOW!!!! These are just to die for - I have never been so chilled out in my life just looking at the views enjoying my G & T!!! This place just lets you capture everything there is to see and feel. We also met the owners - who I have to say were amazing - such cool friendly homely and very energetic people! This place won us over on all counts and I seriosly can't wait to return!!! As for the resort - it just has everything to suit everyone, whether it's just chilling or for the more adventurous. And good bars and very good restaurants too!!
It gets better every year - Love it BIG time.
The new skiing between Kanin and Italy was just excellent - and enjoyed the igloo bar muchly!
Thanks so much!! It's all just amazing!!
