Skiing within 20 mins drive: Ljubi Dom is close to three ski resorts, with Golte just 20 minutes away. The resorts offer extremely reasonable pass rates and equipment hire and have lovely restaurants and bars on the slopes. Golte is a perfect place for families and skiers of different grades of experience, while Rogla has more runs for advanced skiers and snowboarders.
Excellent golf course nearby: Golf is a popular sport here and the 18-hole course of Golf Arboretum is near to Ljubi Dom. The course is in excellent condition and situated in an old arboretum creating a picturesque setting. The practice facilities and restaurant in the clubhouse are both superb. Clubs can be hired at the course and green fees are reasonable. Visit the website for more information.
Two spas within 45 mins drive: Slovenes enjoy swimming in the clear waters of the river of Luce. There are also several health spas nearby with large outdoor and indoor pools set in beautiful surroundings. The spas at Topolsica and Snovik offer massages, aromatherapy and other treatments at extremely reasonable prices, which need to be booked in advance.
We have been on holiday in Slovenia before and this time we took more family members. Ljubi Dom served us perfectly.
The kids loved the space to explore and enjoy the surrounding area safely. Our youngest had a high chair, cot and lots of toys provided to play with which was great.
The house itself has almost everything you need (we thought we needed a TV, but why bother when we have the mountains to enjoy!) and it is clean and spacious.
In order to take advantage of all the activities in the area, you do need a car and we hired from Ljubljana airport.
We would recommend it for large family groups and friends.
We went with 5 friends for a few days in October (we are all late-30s!)
The house, though large, was so cosy in the evenings when we made pizzas in the old traditional Slovene stove.
The only sounds we heard at night time was the river and the bells of the church in the village.
The locals are friendly and the scenery is stunning.
We are coming back soon!
We keep returning to Slovenia and to Ljubi Dom.
The house provides a good, secure base to go walking, swimming and enjoying the local scenery. The rooms are extremely spacious and we were provided with clean towels and bedding together with a little welcome hamper.
The village is delightful - we recommend eating at the resturant, Gostilna Kmet!
We really enjoyed the local skiing at Golte and returning to a warm house where we had two fires going to create a cosy evening atmosphere.
A great place to stay with a large family or a group of friends.
This is my third time staying at Ljubi Dom and it continues to be a place for great relaxation and tranquility.
The house itself is rustic but with all the kitchen and bathroom mod cons required for a large group of people.
We thoroughly enjoyed the use of the lounge with pool table and the views of the river and village are lovely!
A great trip!
The house works equally well for large family gatherings and small intimate groups. We were a small party of four and were short of nothing with everything more than exceeding our expectations.
For us it was a real privilege to be part of this special place, albeit for a short period.

The surrounding area is full of meadows, forests and rivers giving superb walks for all, whether it be for half an hour or a full day.
In winter there are two excellent ski resorts near by ( Golte and Kravavec) and even an opportunity to learn to ski jump on the world class site in Ljubno, host to the Ski Jumping World Cup event every February. (10 minutes from our house)There is also a ski run in the village and a large wooden sledge and numerous bucket sledges in the house. We have the perfect sledging spot just next to the house. A winter dream for children and fun loving adults!
