House | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 12
Hilltops is a peaceful, modern, well equipped country home in the hills between Ljubljana and the coast. The accommodation is provided on two floors and is well suited for two families or a larger group of friends. For smaller groups each floor may be rented independently.
There is a large Jacuzzi Spa Bath and a Sauna as a private 'Wellness Area' for the use of guests.
Outside there is a long lawned garden, a sun terrace, and plenty of space for parking. The first floor apartment has a wonderful sunny roof terrace, and the upper floor has a delightful balcony as well.
Location, Location, Location!
The house is brilliantly placed for first time visitors to Slovenia. The charming capital, Ljubljana, is 40 minutes away, and the seaside is under an hour in the opposite direction. Two of Slovenia's big tourist attractions are just 10 minutes away...the spectacular caves at Postojna...and the remarkable Predjama Castle too. Lake Bled with its romantic Island Church is an easy day-trip.
Slovenia is best for those wanting 'the great outdoors', whether walking or cycling, rafting or swimming, hang-gliding or sightseeing, and with Hilltops as your base, you will be spoiled for choice.

The Notranjska region
Surrounded by rolling green hills and lush forests, the clear clean air here is positively invigorating. The limestone hills hide a spectacular underground world of caves and rivers - take a walk along a secret gorge at Rakov Škocjan where a tranquil river emerges from a cave and flows 6km along a pretty valley before dramatically disappearing underground again.
Enjoy the hospitality of local eateries - enormous family pizzas, or a fantastic open-air country burger bar as well as more formal restaurants. Pack a picnic, or watch the rich red sunsets as you enjoy a barbeque at home.
Drive down to the coast - explore the beautiful town of Piran - or see the famous white horses at the Lipizzaner Horse Stud. Don't forget the charming capital, Ljubljana...and do make time to visit Lake Bled.
Further afield you can head for Trieste and the Italian coast - (you can even reach Venice in just over 2 hours), or travel south into Croatia to explore the Istrian peninsula. To the north are the Julian Alps - stunningly impressive at any time of year, with the breath-taking mountain pass road at Vršic accessible in the summer months. Take one of several cable-car rides to the ski stations above Bovec or Kranska Gora to fully enjoy the incredible mountain scenery.

"Very nice holiday"
With a group of eight friends spent the year-end period to Hilltops. The house is easily accessible thanks to the information provided, really precise. The house is equipped with every comfort and consists of two completely independent apartments equipped with everything (dishes, appliances, linens, etc.). Edo and Ale were very friendly and helpful. From the house you can easily reach the places of interest nearby. Finally we could enjoy the sauna and large Jacuzzi tub with which we relaxed.
Definitely a positive experience
