How to get there

Podmelec is close to both the Italian and Austrian borders.

Regular flights to Trieste, Italy (78km, 1hr 15 mins), Venice, Italy (160km, 2hrs), Klagenfurt, Austria (144km, 2hrs) or Ljubljana, Slovenia (99km, 1hr 30 mins) are available from various carriers such as Ryanair or Easyjet.

Car hire is available from all airports.








From Tolmin, drive out of town towards Most na Soci.

Shortly after leaving Tolmin, the road turns right and here you need to take the left hand turn which is sign posted to Polubinj.

Keep on this road, through Polubinj, then through Ljubinj and then into Podmelec.

Drive through Podmelec and towards the end of the village you will see the recycling bins on the left hand side of the road and a steep concrete driveway directly in front of you. We have a Blue sign on the stone wall 'The Carpenters Workshop'

Drive up the concrete driveway and when it splits, you need to take the sharp left turn.

The Carpenters Barn is the highest property in the village and if you look up to your right as you drive along this last stretch of road you will see the barn.

Parking is available on the grassy area (with a small wooden bench on it) to the left of the road shortly before the barn, though you may wish to drive to the barn to drop off your luggage and then reverse back to the grassy area to park.



Feel free to arrive at the barn any time after 15.00 hours on your arrival date and check out is by 11.00 hours on your departure date. Martina or myself will be on hand to meet you when you arrive, We ask for a text or call around 1 hour before you hope to arrive. Should you be arriving late in the day after 21:00 we will leave lights on for you and we have a key safe on the wall next to the lower kitchen door to the barn.
