Hut/Cottage/Cabin rent for xmas


I've been searching online for quite a while now w/o any luck of finding something that suites my need. Actually i found one, but of course it was already booked...

We're a young couple looking for a (small) hut/cottage/cabin in Slovenia, from the 21st December till over New Years. Where in Slovenia doesnt matter (Rolga or Pokljuka area perferred), as long as following criterias are met:

-nearby cross-country tracks (that are likely to be groomed and operational during the visit)

-pets allowed (one small dog)

-quiet area (no ski resorts)

Can anyone point me in a good direction?

Thanks in advance!

Best rgds,

I assume you mean this holiday season (in about a month). In which case you'll have to be extremely lucky to find any vacancies. People start making plans/reservations for this at the end of summer if not before.

I hope someone else will be able to give you better advice and suggestions.

Have you tried searching here, under apartments or holiday homes: www.slovenia.info/…

You could also try directly contacting the local tourist offices for Rogla (http://www.destinacija-rogla.si/?lang=en) and Pokljuka (Bled tourist office) to see if they can help you out. Otherwise some good places for cross-country skiing are also Kranjska Gora and Bohinj, but they're both a bit touristy, especially Kranjska Gora with its ski resort.

Some other less crowded possibilities are Bloke (http://bloke.si), which has centuries of skiing tradition and no virtually tourists, Logarska dolina (http://www.logarska-dolina.si/) and Jezersko (http://www.jezersko.info/), which both receive most visitors in the summer, but are wonderful places in wintertime. Your best bet is probably to search the websites and contact the tourist offices and see if you can find any vacancies. Unfortunately like Grim said, renting a cottage for New Years' is very popular in Slovenia so they tend to get booked quite early.

Try here on Velika Planina! Dont wait! Not far from the airport and not on the nobody place.

Thank you so much!

Several places I havent been able to locate myself; Bloke, Jerzersko, Solcava, Logar Valley and Velika all have what I've been looking for. Hopefully I' will get some positive replies on one of the ten emails sent. Fingers crossed!!!

How is weather normally/historical during xmas in these areas?

Again, thank you all!

Lost of snow, cold, can be sunny too :) Slovenia is small + motorways so you can go wherever you want for a day trip to add some variety to your holiday(rent a car!).

For possible trips you can lookup in this thread tripadvisor.com/…54085417 , great post by user "ApartmentValant".
