Our summer cottage an ideal place to stay for families (pets are welcome!) and couples, peace and nature lovers. A trampoline and two bicycles are available.
It is located in central Slovenia: 2h drive from the Adriatic sea, 1h drive from the Alps, 45 min from Ljubljana.
The surrounding area is great for hiking in the summer and skiing in winter (Golte - a ski resort is 15 min away). The Velenje lake (great for swimming) is 20 min away and a spa is 1/2h away. There is also river and ponds.
The cottage is an old house, decorated accordingly in a vintage style. It has a nice potio with a table and chairs outside under the roof and a wonderful view of the meadows and hills. Sometimes you can hear the sheep bells and see them grazing nearby on pastures. The place is quiet and green, with a small forest behind the house and a wooden hamock turned into a quiet reading or family chat room. There is also some hay on the top of the hamock to have an adventurous or retro-romantic :) sleep over in in the summer.
In the cottage there is a fireplace, a small childrens' room (2 beds) with Pippilongstockings and some other toys, a bedroom with king-size bed, a small bathroom with a shower, a sink and a toilet, a kitchen with a dining corner and a living room with two sofas which can be turned into beds. We provide also for a portable a baby bed.
You will be able to comfortably enjoy the house on your own, as there is only 1 very friendly neighbour (elderly couple) nearby. Only sometimes in the evening deer come for a visit. There is also a big trampoline for children outside and an open fire place to bake potatoes, corn or chesnuts on. Or just to sit by the open fire at night and watch the stars. There are also 2 bikes available.
Disadvantages (honesty counts): the bathroom is small, so there is only a shower (no bath) and no washing machine, but can we do the washing for you once a week if you need one. There is also no dishwasher, no cable-tv and no wi-fi, so you will be able to talk to each other. :) So it's an ideal place for nature lovers, who like more comfort and privacy/peace than in a camp site.
But the cottage is old and has no central heating, so it can get a bit cool in winter unless you log up the fireplace constantly.
