Beautifully restored cottage near Tolmin
The house has been totally renovated whilst retaining its original charm. The first room you enter is the kitchen. It is interesting because half of the ceiling has been cut away creating a double height void with glass panels in the roof giving lots of light. After the kitchen, we have restored all of the original wooden floors. The hallway leads into the lounge which has views of the mountain in front and a traditional stove. Leading off from the lounge is the sleekly designed bathroom with an large walk in shower and stone floor.
There are quite steep stairs (not for elderly or very small children) leading to the 1st floor landing, Again here part of the ceiling has been removed to give a double height and plenty of light through the glass panels. There are 2 tasteful double bedrooms on this floor.
Up some more steep stairs and we have the top landing with an area for quiet reading and admiring the mountain views. Leading off this is a very large attic room that has a single and a double futon beds.
The house is situated in a small wooded village called Ljubinj near Tolmin. You can walk straight out of the door and be in the woods in less than 100m. In fact, Ljubinj is right on the edge of the Triglav National Park and the Julian Alps. I would be perfect for both a quiet, relaxing holiday or one full of outdoor activities. There are countless walks, paths and waterfalls without having to get in the car. It is within walking distance of one of the best rock-climbing cliffs in the area and has views of the paragliding take-off from the window. In fact the village is on the way to Kobala paragliding take-off! It is the perfect base for walking, climbing, cycling and paragliding whilst at the same time being just minutes from Tolmin and its supermarkets.
Lake Bled and Bohinj are on the other side of the big mountains behind the house. Luckily there is a car train from Most Na Soci (5 minutes from the house) that can take you to Bohinj in around half an hour (with your car)! Bled is about another 15 minutes from there.
