Experience Slovenia in holiday lettings

Booking holiday lettings in Slovenia makes it convenient for you to explore an amalgamation of Slavic, Germanic and Romance cultures for an experience that is uniquely Slovenian. Even within that culture, you’ll find a wide variety of experiences, from historical architecture and rustic cultural practices to various geological features, including snowy mountain ranges and sunny coastlines. Add sophisticated cuisine to top it all off, and Slovenia makes a perfect destination for your next holiday.

History

Historic sites near Slovenia holiday homes

Slovenia has a long history as a member of numerous different states, including the Byzantine Empire, Roman Empire, Holy Roman Empire and several dozen more throughout the ages. Remnants of Slovenia’s rich history can be found all over the country, many near to holiday homes. You can visit Predjama Castle to see Renaissance architecture that was built partially inside a cave. You may also want to visit Ljubljana Castle to see 16th-century architecture that also offers incredible views of the city of Ljubljana. Stična Abbey dates back even further, as this monastery was built all the way back in 1136, and you can visit its famous tea room for a taste of its renowned blend. If you’d like to explore more recent history, you may want to visit Outdoor Museum Kolovrat, where you can travel through the trenches from World War I.

Things to do

Things to do near Slovenia holiday homes

From holiday homes in Slovenia, you can explore some of the best the country has to offer. Within the Julian Alps, you can visit Lake Bled, offering scenic views that look like something out of a fairy tale, with a crystal-clear lake surrounded by vibrant green forest against a mountain-range backdrop. You may also want to visit Postojna Cave, a limestone cave that stretches a total of 24,119 metres. It’s so large it has its own post office. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can climb Triglav, the largest mountain in Slovenia, with a 2,864-metre summit. You can find additional natural beauty at Vintgar Gorge, which is easy to traverse, thanks to the numerous wooden bridge paths across it.

How to get around

Transport to Slovenia holiday cottages

Slovenia has worked hard to make it easy for travellers and residents to get around. If you’re looking for the most efficient way to get to holiday cottages, there are plenty of options to choose from. The country is too small to warrant any domestic flights, but Slovenian Railways operates an extensive system that hits almost all the major cities and towns. Additionally, Slovenia features a large network of buses that cover pretty much the entire country, including smaller towns and big cities. If you’re looking to drive yourself, keep in mind that most petrol stations close at night and aren’t open at all on Sundays.

Good for couples

Romance in Slovenia holiday cottages

Whether you’re planning a honeymoon or a romantic getaway for an anniversary, Slovenia has incredible holiday cottages and attractions for couples. You can visit Piran, a coastal town filled with old-world charm, sandy beaches and delicious food that you can enjoy while taking in a gorgeous sunset, or you may want to visit Logar Valley, a long stretch of greenery surrounded on both sides with forested mountains – the perfect place for a romantic morning of horseback riding, hiking or cycling. Bohinj Valley is a nice mix of both experiences, as Lake Bohinj, located in the middle of the sprawling valley, is ideal for kayaking and swimming. If you like horses, Lipica is world-renowned for its selection, and you can take them through seemingly never-ending meadows to enjoy the scenic Slovenian Karst countryside.
