Thrutful nature, birds chirping, the rustling of trees, charming cottages and a delicious breakfast. All of this describes the perfect romantic getaway in unique glamping resort The Woods of Sinic on Pohorje.
My family and I had the opportunity to visit and try the first glamping on Pohorje before the official opening. It bears a name The Woods of Sinic and even the first glance at minimalist architecture in beautiful nature takes your breath away. It is located on the top of Slivniško Pohorje, in the immediate vicinity of Mariborska koča and Bellevue.
Upon arrival, we were completely amazed by the exterior of the wooden glamping houses, reminiscent of fairytale forest villas and are beautifully nestled among the trees. Provenly, the surroundings also sucked in our youngest member, as he was incredibly calm and relaxed throughout our stay here. Lush canopies, a light breeze and the gentle voices of animals in a forest paradise are definitely real poetry for the soul, which you do not get tired of easily.
Oh, I almost forgot... What is glamping actually?
Glamping is an experience of camping in nature with the comfort you know at home. To simplify: electricity, wifi, a comfortable bed and untouched nature around you. It is because of the latter that this fast-growing tourist trend has taken over the whole world. Who does not want to experience first-class contact with nature without the need to set up a classic tent.
There are currently 5 cottages available, we stayed in one of the two cottages with Jacuzzi and completely indulged in spontaneity. We were without plans as we decided to spend the weekend completely carefree. We started our stay with a coffee on the terrace with a divine view. Mia and Amai took advantage of this time to walk the carefully landscaped paths between the cottages and observe the beautiful nature.
Our cottage was just the right size, with a double bed that is suitable for two adults and one child. Definitely my favourite part of the cottage is the huge glass window overlooking the treetops. A look that really takes over even the most sensitive tourists.
Here I found my own reading spot and enjoyed the extraordinary moments. We spent most of the time outside, in close contact with the soothing touch of the forest that surrounded us. We often lack this in our busy everyday lives. This is the main reason for booking such weekends. We take time for ourselves and gather new energy for the upcoming work weeks.
As everywhere, we are always most excited about breakfast. I don't know why, but it's the same on all trips (: We all wake up in a good mood, full of energy and very hungry. So we always go to a restaurant in anticipation of a good culinary offer. This time it was a little different, because breakfast was brought to our house. We served it on our terrace and enjoyed authentic local specialties, fresh orange juice and of course morning coffee. Mia was delighted with the homemade jam and fresh fruit and Amai was delighted with the freshly baked butter croissant.
Relaxing in the jacuzzi with a glass of good wine, candles, silence, all surrounded by a starry sky. Everything you can expect from a weekend getaway and more. It’s the cherry on the cake, which adds a glamorous touch to The Woods of Sinic glamping and places it on the top of glamping offer in Slovenia.
Our mini vacation was truly unforgettable and I sincerely hope to repeat it soon. Maybe in the winter months, as we are aware that this location must be truly magical.
We are already looking forward to the official opening and it is expected in October. I suggest that you secure your place as soon as possible, especially given the fact that it is possible to use tourist vouchers as payment for bed and breakfast!
