Pauline's apartment is naturally cool with a view of the garden from the room. It has a kitchen, en-suite bathroom and large storage closet. Guests also have exclusive access to the patio outside the room. Free wifi and free parking across street
Hemingway House Holiday Apartments is a 19th century townhouse right in the centre of Kobarid which has been converted into 5 unique self-catering apartments for the budget yet style conscious traveller.
There is a very large free car parking place directly across the street from the house and another 4 free parking areas within a minutes walk of the house. I have left my own car there for years without any problems.
The Apartments have all been named after Ernest Hemingway's wives and this queen studio apartment (27sqm) has been named after his second wife Pauline.
This studio apartment (27 sqm) catches the afternoon and evening sun so is particularly bright and cheerful.
It has queen double bed, a wardrobe and chester drawers for storing of clothes.
The kitchen has a 3 ring electric hob, fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle, Bodum French press and Bialetti coffee makers, cooking equipment and crockery for two people. The Dining room table seats two.
The en-suite bathroom is has ample counter space for your toiletries and has a large storage closet for your luggage etc and a heated towel rail.
The room is located at the rear of the ground floor of the house and is accessed directly via the Downstairs terrace. It has its own private and lockable entrance.
Guests staying for more than 3 days can do laundry at a cost of €2/load.
Breakfast is also available upon request at an added cost of €6/per person / per night. It consists of tea, coffee, hot milk, juice, fresh fruits, museli and corn flakes, yogurt, breads, meats, cheeses and a boiled egg. The breakfast can also be adapted to suit your (URL HIDDEN) apple juice vs. orange juice etc.
I have tried to make this apartment a home away from home for guests and I wish you a very happy stay here in the Soca Valley.
Hemingway House has two terraces from which to admire the stunning mountain views visible from them.
There is a large garden which has a BBQ and 2 picnic tables, as well as 3 sun loungers for you to relax on. And I've planted a herb garden and so guests can cook with fresh herbs.
To the rear of the property is a large secure barn where you can store larger sports equipment, kayaks, paragliders, bicycles etc. On the top floor, I would be more than happy to dry out wet clothes (and even tents) on your behalf.
Interaction with guests
I live at the house and I've been told on more than one occassion that I'm a fount of knowledge about the local area and what can be done here.
I have thoroughly explored my new homeland and the surrounding countries, particularly Italy, and I'm very happy to share my ideas of where to go etc with my guests.
Other things to note
The prices do not include the local tourist tax which costs €1.27 per adult and €0.63 per child (3 to 18).
If you are planning to come for 7 nights or longer it is always worth it to write to me...I like to make special offers for my longer term guests.
Hemingway House is located on a residential street, so I would appreciate if guests would keep the noise to a minimum after 10:30 pm in consideration of the neighbours and other guests. This is not a party house!
