The country of Slovenia is well-known throughout as a place of intense green landscapes, snow-capped mountains, therapeutic waters and exceptional natural wonders, and the region of Styria (also called Stajerska) is no different. At its heart is the beautiful city of Maribor, famous for its wine-making, good food and warm hospitality. This metropolis (the second largest in Slovenia) would be the perfect setting for a holiday rental in Styria, not only if you’re a wine lover (although that is reason enough to visit the bars and the oldest vine in the world!) but also because it offers an appealing balance of picturesque historic sights, superb cultural entertainments, energetic sports and gentle leisure pursuits.
A holiday rental in Styria is an obvious choice if you love fresh air and natural landscapes. The scenery here is breathtaking in a picture-postcard kind of way and the countryside is filled with mountains, waterfalls and lakes. In the winter you can ski down the slopes of the Pohorje range, and in the summer the forests up above the city are made for rambling, alternatively you could picnic on the banks of the river Drava and then head to one of the local wellness resorts for some serious R&R. Whether you stay within the city or decide to explore the surrounding areas, Styria is a gorgeous spot for a holiday rental in Slovenia and it should not be underestimated. You’ll be hard pressed to find anywhere more relaxing.
