          Location and Accommodation

Slovenia is a gorgeous hidden gem of Europe, with a population of 2 million.

The Triglav National Park extends along the Italian border and close to the Austrian border in the north-west of Slovenia, that is, in the south-eastern section of the Alps.

The park was named after Triglav, the highest mountain in the heart of the park, which is also the highest summit in Slovenia (2864 m).

The park covers 840 square kilometres, and it is one of the oldest European parks; the first protection dates back to 1924 when the Alpine Conservation Park was founded. 

The beautiful emerald Soča river, which flows at the foot of the Julian Alps, by the Italian border has carved an exhilarating valley at an elevation of 876 metres and has some of the most gorgeous waters in Europe.

We will be staying in a secluded beautifully renewed traditional farmhouse set in 22 acres of forest and fields at the foothills of the Julian Alps in Slovenia’s Soca Valley, with crystal clear mountain springs and mountain river running through the property, a stone’s throw from the Triglav National Park.

 

Guests will benefit from spacious, unique high quality rooms with stunning mountain views and access to all in-house and onsite facilities.

Accommodation has 6 double rooms and one twin room, all with en-suite bathrooms, two outdoor and one indoor dinning spaces, and a yoga room with mountain views.

We are pleased to inform you that accommodation, as well as our retreat, is pet friendly, so you are welcome to bring along your furry friend if you wish so.
