Hotel review: Castello di Giomici (Umbria, Italy)

If you ever visit Umbria, the green heart of Italy, please do yourself a favor and don’t stay in an ordinary hotel. Stay in a local farmhouse or better yet, stay in a castle.

And last but not the least, you don’t get to wake up as a king or a princess every day, right? If you do, please drop me a line and tell me your secret 😉 Castello di Giomici (Giomici castle in English) is a pet friendly retreat that offers perfect getaway from everyday hustle and bustle in the green oasis of Umbria.

Slovenia day trips: Brdo Estate

I believe it is safe to say Gorenjska is the most beautiful region in Slovenia. If you visit Slovenia you definitely shouldn’t miss world famous Bled with the small island in the middle of the lake, its bigger brother Bohinj lake, Kranjska gora area, alpine valleys with scenic drives and waterfalls, not to mention the limitless hiking opportunities in Triglav national park. However, if you don’t have enough time to visit Gorenjska but you still want to feel the touch of beautiful Slovene nature, visiting Brdo Park near Ljubljana airport is a nice alternative. Brdo Estate is a perfect opportunity to stretch your legs if you have a few hours before your flight, or if you are staying close to the airport.
