Two-floor flat with spacious terrace in the Ljubljana city centre.

"Slovenia is as picture-perfect as Switzerland or other Alpine areas to the north, but much smaller and easier on the wallet. If you’re keen on trekking, skiing, rafting or simply taking in the scenery of one of Europe’s most attractive countries then Slovenia will not disappoint." - Lonely Planet's Best in Travel 2013.

We live in the center of Slovenia's capital Ljubljana. It is a good central location to discover and explore the rich diversity of landscapes and attractions of the country. It's also a good base for day trips to the seaside (Italian and Croatian Adriatic coast), to the lakes, valleys and mountains, to towns (Trieste, Venice, Zagreb ...). Slovenia is small so by car you can reach any destination in a short time.

Our home is located on the second and third floor of a house built in the 1930-ies. We have a large terrace (80 m2) on the top floor. On the second floor we have a kitchen/living room/master bedroom. There are two children rooms on the same floor, a bathroom and a hall/library/staircase. On the third floor we have an extra living room (16,5 m2) leading to the terrace. The terrace is spacious and overlooking a small park (as the terrace --wooden floor-- will be installed this Spring, we will add photos as soon as it is installed).

The house is situated in the heart of the city center, but away from the busier tourist areas. You can explore the entire city center on foot.

We moved to this completely renovated flat in 2019. Here are some comments by families that exchanged with us in our previous home (near Ljubljana):
"Thanks for letting us stay in your lovely house these two weeks. This exchange --our seventh-- has been one of the best we have made. During our stay we have spent lots of time around the Bled area. We were swimming in Lake Bled, walked on top of Vogel, seen waterfalls both at Lake Bohinj and at the Vintgar Gorge. We also did some exciting rafting in Bovec along the Soca river. Turning South we visited the fantastic Skocjanske caves, the Lipica horses, the beautiful Piran. We visited Italy: Trieste, where we bought some good Parmesan cheese, and Venice where we did some mandatory sightseeing. Our favorite however was Lake Bohinj and Bled where the Bovec rafting was the icing on the cake. Slovenia has been a pleasant surprise to us and we wish you all the best in your future exchanges."

"We are leaving your house after a very nice holiday in Slovenia. We used a lot of your visit tips: Bled, the Vintgar gorge, the Skocjan Caves ( *** ), Lipica, Bistra (*** :-) ) Castle and Museum, Otocec, the Valley of the Krka, Monasteries of Sticna, Pleterje, Piran, Izola, Koper..., Trieste, etc. Thanks for your hospitality and the warmth of your house! Always welcome at our house."

"Thank you for letting us use your beautiful home and giving us lots of good advice about your lovely country. /.../ We enjoyed the beautiful landscapes, old architecture and nice atmosphere here is Slovenia! /.../ If you need recommendations, please give our details to new partners."
