About Spike Thorne

Karen and Spike came on holiday to Slovenia after reading a travel article in the Sunday Times! Being true Francophiles and having learnt French for 10 years and expecting to settle in France, we were amazed with Slovenia. After 2 weeks in Slovenia we chanced upon Fairytale Chalet and bought it there and then.

After 3 years we loved it so much we bought another house to renovate and live in, permanently. Rather than sell Fairytale Chalet we decided to try renting it, to let other people see what an amazing place Slovenia is. After 5 years of successful renting we have met some truly wonderful people from all over the world! They have all had super holidays here, so please look at our site and the guest comments. Then we hope to meet you, and show you why Slovenia is one of the best place to live and holiday in.

Spike Thorne purchased this chalet in 2004

There is a new shop in the village which can supply all your daily needs a 10 minute walk away.

Celje is the nearest city. The Old Town is enchanting but equally so is the new shopping mall, which boasts a C&A and H&M amongst others, as well as lots of cafés and the multiplex cinema.

Kamnik if you can fit this town in on your way back to Ljubljana Airport- then do so. Its a gem. It has a wonderful Romanesque chapel and crypt which has been brilliantly restored. It gives views out over one of Slovenia's prettiest medieval towns with the Kamniske Alps in the background.

One of the best preserved Roman Necropolis in the world is a short drive away. The monuments were washed into the river and covered with mud. They were only found recently during house extension work. Great to look at now. See photo gallery for some examples.

Velenje is just 20 mins away. Turn right from the Chalet and experience the beautiful scenery of the lower Savinja valley on your way.
