SLOW HOTELS: VILA PLANINKA, ZERO WASTE, BODY & MIND - the wearness
  • SLOW HOTELS: VILA PLANINKA

    VILLA PLANINKA in Slowenien - Slow Hotels

    Very special places where nature and sustainability play the most important role.

    Leave the hustle and bustle of everyday life behind and take a break. Wellness for body, mind and soul instead of 24-hour smartphones flickering. We recommend holiday destinations in Germany. From hotels with zero-waste thoughts to designer eco-lodges on the Baltic Sea. Our favourite of the week:

    VILA PLANINKA

    The perfect place to relax? A picturesque eco-hotel in the Slovenian mountains, near the village of Jezersko. The entrepreneur Marjan Batagelj and his wife Katja recently opened the beautiful Vila Planinka. Only 23 rooms, bright and designed with a lot of wood, of course from the region. Each room is cosy and individually furnished, restored antiques give the rooms a very special touch, the bathrooms have vegan beauty products.

    SLOW HOTELS: Die Villa Planinka ist unser Favorit der Woche - the wearness Journal    

    The nature-loving design of the villa and the local kitchen invites you to relax

    Exemplary: In the Vila Planinka everything revolves around the topic of sustainability. During the renovation of the house Batagelj attached great importance to harmony between humans and nature, culture and old traditions.

    It is committed to zero waste, there are no air conditioning systems and pellets are used for heating.

    Usually the light is turned off at 11 p.m. to save energy. And to be able to admire the magic starry sky even better.

    And during the day? Bike trips to the mountains, hikes with Nejc, a mountain guide who knows all the medicinal herbs and patiently explains their effects to the guests, relaxing in the sauna, reading and enjoying the fresh mountain air. You can also accompany the experienced chefs to the farms in the neighborhood and pick up the eggs from the nest yourself, which are then fried for breakfast. All the products used in the kitchen come from the surrounding area. The incredibly delicious menu always depends on what the season has to offer. And the drinking water gushes from a local spring. Small tip: The Vila Planika is the perfect place for Digital Detox: Wlan only works in the rooms if you request it (double room from approx. 185 €, www.vilaplaninka.com).
