It’s perfectly located to let you explore one of the nicest regions of the country, and close to the Croatian border so you can explore the neighboring country too.

As soon as you walk into your bungalow at Big Berry Luxury Landscape Resort, you will know you are in for a treat and that ahead of you lays one of the most relaxing experiencing you can imagine. 

In this post, I highlight everything you need to know before booking your stay at Big Berry Slovenia.

5 Things To Know About Big Berry Slovenia

It’s luxury, but understated

You may think you don’t care about luxury, except one day you start getting it and realize you can really do with it – in fact, you really want it. 

The comforts of Big Berry Slovenia are just that. Luxury, but never in your face.

You will find a spotless and fully equipped kitchen with a couch where you can get cozy. A basket full of local goodies will be waiting for you: a craft beer from the local brewery Vizir; a delicious jar of local honey; a freshly pressed apple juice; a piece of fresh pogaca, the local bread; and the Big Berry Slovenia shower gel.

Stressing out in the jacuzzi… NOT!

Incredibly well organized, the bungalow where you will stay has a bedroom with a double bed, and another one with two bunk beds and plenty of closets – it can comfortably sleep up to 6 persons.

The bathroom has a huge shower, and the kitchen/living room a big fridge, a large (and nicely hidden) flat screen tv with cable tv (and Netflix: this is where you can binge on your favorite series).

Yet, the cherry on the cake is the most wonderful jacuzzi located on the porch, where you can enjoy some extra relaxing time. As if you could ever stress in such an amazing place.

To complete an already perfect scenario, not far from the bungalows there are some beautiful sun beds and swings under some trees, and a fantastic barbecue that you can use during the summer and which apparently has been the scene of many parties organized by the wonderful stuff.

Breakfast is fabulous

All bungalows at Big Barry face the river, on the other side of which lays Croatia. On the porch there’s a large table perfect for having breakfast while enjoying some fresh morning air. Depending on the season, you can even eat dinner there. Sure enough, at Big Berry Slovenia breakfast is a serious business: every morning, someone from the staff will deliver you a basket full of goodies, which is enough to feed a family of 4.

The surroundings are incredible

Set in the most tranquil countryside, the only sound you will be able to hear at Big Berry Slovenia will be that of the light breeze sweeping the leaves; of the occasional cow mooing; and of the strong rain when it pours during the night. It is real bliss to someone as exhausted as I am.

While at Big Berry Slovenia, you can explore the beautiful surroundings and go even further to visit other places in Slovenia. Bikes are available for guests, and even a couple of canoes to paddle up the river and reach a water mill.

Pogaca – the traditional bread of Bela Krajina. I baked this all by myself and it was delicious!

It partners with local businesses

One of the things I like the most about Big Berry Slovenia Luxury Landscape Resort is that it partners with a number of small local businesses.

From oil to dairy and honey producers, to local bakeries, vineyards and beer crafters, and even a local gym where guests can attend fitness classes, Big Berry Slovenia has implemented a system that not only provides the camp with local products, but supports the local economy allowing it to grow and thrive and at the same time facilitating the creation of a better infrastructure to accommodate the growing tourism (although part of me still hopes that Bela krajina remains a bit undiscovered, as it is too gorgeous the way it is).

I recommend going to a vineyard in Semic, where the owner Samoel Malnaric will tell you about the history of the local wines, about their production and the overall wine culture of Slovenia. It is an interesting experience, not only because of the lovely wines, but because Samoel will welcome you in his small vineyard and share a bit of his life with you.

Similarly, you can go to a local brewery, Vizir, and try all the best local beers. You can taste the sweetest honey as well as the honey liquor in Metlika. You can smother your skin with the fabulous oils produced by Oljarna Pecaric. And you can even bake your own pogaca during a workshop.
