The officially rated 4* apartment and 3* house are perfect for holiday, short term or business use as a hotel alternative. The apartment has one double bedroom and another bedroom with bunk beds. There is also a sofa bed in the lounge. Both the lounge and dining area have seating for six people, with windows providing views over the surrounding countryside. The balcony faces the vineyard and has sun from late morning until sunset. There is also a private garden.
The house is terraced with three bedrooms upstairs similarly well furnished. One bedroom has a double bed, the second has two singles and the third has bunk beds. The garden has views to the vineyard on one side and woods on the other.
Both properties have allocated parking for two cars and the location is child friendly as it is virtually traffic free. From both gardens the relaxing sound of running water from the nearby stream can be heard as it descends from the Pohorje hills on its way to the nearby river Drava
Graz airport in Austria is served by Ryanair and is only 45 minutes by car and 60 Euros if we arrange your transfer. Ljubljana Brnik airport served by Easy jet and Adria (Slovenia’s national carrier) is 90 minutes distant. You can also fly in to Zagreb airport which is roughly also 90 minutes away.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Maribor, the house was perfect and the skiing even better, the snow, the floodlit skiing, the atmosphere around the slopes and the friendly locals made it a most enjoyable time, and fully intend to visit again next year.
Many thanks for all your help,
Dan, Sue & family.
The properties are located in a quiet rural location in the village of Limbus overlooked by a vineyard but within striking distance of Maribor, Slovenia's second largest city with all the usual city attractions. In fact it is the best of both worlds as it is situated on wine road (vinska cesta) No 17 with 5 official vineyards within walking distance but a 10 minutes bus ride takes you in to the centre of Maribor. Conversely a short 5 minute drive will bring you to Slovenia's largest ski slope and home to the most popular women's world cup slalom race - the Golden Fox. There is something of interest for everyone. Within 5 minutes walk of the apartment you will find absolutely all you need whilst on holiday - a couple of fine but inexpensive restaurants, general store, butchers, coffee shop etc. The thermal spa complex at the Habakuk hotel is at the base of the ski slope and two golf courses are within 30 minutes drive. There is something of interest for everyone.
Other Activities: Wine tasting / vineyard tours.
