It was the end of the winter so I managed to get a couple of days of skiing in at local resorts (around one hour's drive) and also enjoyed some gentle strolling in the hills straight from the house; one day lunching in Italy, and a trip to Lake Bled another day. The property was very well equipped with everything one might require and all correspondence with Paul and Kathy prior to my visit was replied to very promptly and efficiently. They were great hosts.

Lilly welcomed us very warmly and gave us the feeling "to come home"! The cottage is very well equipped and you have a great view into the green surrounding. We took our breakfast in the beautiful garden and make a bbq. The sleeping rooms are very nice and the beds are very comfortable. The living room is perfect for sitting together in group chatting and eating. We highly recommend Lilly's place!!
