General description

  • Main home
Small house in a hidden away cluster of houses on the edge of the woods. Short drive or bus ride from Slovenia's second city, Maribor. Couple of cafe-bars in walking distance. Great walks in the local area., gentle rolling hills.

Only the kitchen is on the ground floor, the bedrooms, bathroom and living room are up one flight of stairs. The garden is sloped and not enclosed. There is space to park a car.

This is a rural area and anyone who enjoys nature and walking will love it. However, there are lots of places to explore close by, thermal baths, castles, etc.

Needs and Animals

  • Vegetable patch
  • A dog
We have an 11 year old female dog who loves going for a walk. She is well behaved and can be left alone in the house for a few hours. The garden does not have a fence and she will usually sit outside in the garden and not wander. We grow some vegetables which will need to be watered once a day. Other than that, please just come and enjoy yourself. There's plenty to see and do in the area.
