Slovenia: Slovenia is located in the sunny side of the Alps. It benefits from dramatic Alpine scenarios and warm Mediterranean climate. The Cottage is located in the middle of the country, half an hour’s drive south east from the Slovenian capital Ljubljana. This makes it a convenient spot from where you can reach almost any part of Slovenia in one and a half hours drive. Alps: A day trip to the alpine lakes of Bled and Bohinj are also recommended. Further west stretches Triglavski Narodni Park, the national Alpine natural conservation area of exquisite natural beauty. The sea side: The area where the Alps warm up with Mediterranean weather is called Karst. This is the land of world’s deepest caves, Lipizzaners (famous white training horses) and Italian-like cuisine. The restaurants and inns of Karst are only an hour drive away from the Cottage and offer a pleasant day-trip destination. Half an hour further is the Adriatic coast with the ancient Mediterranean town of Piran.
Ljubljana: Ljubljana is a small and picturesque town. A day-trip to the capital makes a delightful destination offering shopping, visits to art galleries, and a variety of bars and restaurants along the Ljubljanica River.

Here we would like to thank to all our guests who have written to our Book of Impressions. We appreciate their kind words, suggestions and opinions. The book has now become a valuable selection of advice, tips, dos, dont's that will be valued by all our future guests. Below are a couple of short quotes from the book. 'The location of this property is as tranquil as it gets, yet an excellent base for daily trips . The property is beautifully finished to a high standard throughout and will not disappoint. We were impressed by the thought that had gone into providing everything you could need except some clothes to wear and some food to put in the fridge. This really is more than a `holiday cottage`, it is a spacious rural home that allows you to sample Slovenian life in supreme comfort. 10/10', May 05. 'The cottage is in a great location with fantastic views... Our 2 year old enjoyed all the toys and being able to run around. We have had a lovely holiday retreat at the cottage', July05
