Our location could not be more perfect for you to use as a base to explore Slovenia in short hops. We are less than an hour from hundreds of Slovenia's best places to visit and 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 are just 10 mins from one of the most beautiful and most 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), 12 mins to the Postojna caves, (the most visited cave in Europe), 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 Slovenian or Italian Adriatic coasts or 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 unimaginably beautiful gorges, rivers and waterfalls.. ALL easily in a 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. You can find out more in our FLIGHTS , DIRECTIONS, CAR RENTAL and TO DRIVE OR NOT TO DRIVE sections.
We are also just 10 minutes from Postojna with all the amenities you need from a small town, but we sit in a peaceful little village surrounded by a green paradise and with Slovenia's last mountain before Italy in our back garden to watch the sun set behind!
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).
