Our location could not be more perfect for you to use as a base to explore Green Slovenia in short hops. We are less than an hour from hundreds of Slovenia's best places to visit and just 45 mins from 2 international airports. Too many people are missing out by either driving through Slovenia or just overnighting and not actually finding out what this "Little Switzerland with a Little Coast" has to offer. See for yourself on the map on our LOCATION page.
We had plenty of time & visits to Slovenia to research and locate the very best position to build a new Lodge so that you can explore the whole of the country from just one base if you like. But every year we are constantly surprised to find new places to visit close by and realise how lucky we were to find such a great spot for Lipizzaner Lodge!
We are just 10 mins from one of the most beautiful and unique castles in the world, the fairytale Predjama castle, (even better you can walk there from the Lodge along a 40 min secret forest path)! Just 12 mins to the Postojna caves, (the most visited cave in Europe) and you can also hike there from the Lodge. We are 20 minutes from the even more spectacular Skocjan caves or Lipica, the home of the world famous Lipizzaner white horses.
We are only 30 minutes to the seaside, either the Slovenian or Italian Adriatic coast , (just 70 mins to the Croatian seaside as well) or just half an hour to the smallest, cutest capital city in Europe, Ljubljana and just one hour from the beautiful lake Bled and the Slovenian Alps. Our position is perfect to visit Slovenia's biggest kept secret, the wine growing Vipava valley and, rather handily, there is also a great motorway through that particular valley to whisk you to a huge choice of unimaginabubble beautiful gorges, (Tolmin) rivers (Soca) and waterfalls (Kozjak).. ALL located within an easy & spectacular days return drive with a meal and comfy bed awaiting you at the Lodge.
Lipizzaner Lodge could really not be positioned better! We are less than 10 minutes from 4 junctions of the ultra modern Slovenian motorway network going all directions north, south, east and west, but still in the heart of the countryside, (that's Landol, below)! You can find out much more in our FLIGHTS , DIRECTIONS, CAR RENTAL and TO DRIVE OR NOT TO DRIVE sections.
We are also just 10 minutes from the central town of Postojna with all the facilities you could need from a small town, (6 supermarkets, train station, world famous cave!) but we sit in a peaceful little village surrounded by a green paradise with Slovenia's last mountain before Italy, (Nanos, 1,313m) pretty much in our back garden to watch the sun set behind!
Quite simply, we aim to be your home from home to plan your own daytrips, or to choose from a selection of guided day and half daytrips. We will assist you as much or as little as you please, so you can make the most of your visit to Slovenia, north Italy and Istria, (north west Croatia).
Now you can visit Green Slovenia!
