Velika Planina on it's own is for me one of the most amazing places in Slovenia. And coming to a cottage like this is just a fairytale. There is no other cottage close by and you have a view of the mountains right from the common room. For us the fire place and the sauna were amazing to experience in a cottage and location like Velika Planina. The owner Rok welcomed us warmly and gave us all the information we needed regarding the cottage, the area and also shared with us some stories.
Who wouldn't want to spend a few days in a fairytale? If you are one of us, go to Ojstrca!
It was an absolute thrill to stay in the cottage. We arrived in bad weather with a car, and walked the last 30 minutes. The owner was extremely nice and came to us half way so we would not get lost in the fog. The cottage is on perfect location, with splendid view, and extremely nice setting. We have spent evenings in sauna, and in front of lovely fireplace with and days walking around on the mountain or barbecuing in the garden.
It was a perfect and quiet retreat from a very busy life in the city, all we could ever wish for.
The owner was nicer and more hospitable as most of the hotel receptionists, you really do feel special, staying in the cottage.
The cottage was clean, spacious, warm (despite extreme weather outside) and cosy. Like I said, a perfect retreat from busy city life.
I would recommend this cottage to anyone, especially couples looking for a private, discrete retreat.
We had an amazing stay in Rok's chalet. The location is idyllic, with many hiking paths and local food options (try "štruklji" at Zeleni rob). The chalet has all the amenities you need and is tastefully decorated (the photos don't really do it justice). Much recommended to couples and families. Last but not least, the host Rok was very welcoming and made our stay even more pleasant. We will definitely be returning to the chalet for our next vacation.
We stayed at the cottage for three nights with our 2 year old son. It was an exciting adventure to get to reach the cottage by chairlift :) We were warmly welcomed by Rok. Staying in touch with him was very easy because of his prompt responses. The nature and views around the cottage was something we had never seen before, amazing! Cows were walking around freely! Although the weather was foggy and didn't get to Enjoy the views as much as we would have liked, the cottage with the fireplace and sauna gave us the peace of mind that we were looking for. Also, when we had to leave the place, Rok arranged alternative transportation for us when the chairlift stopped working because of the bad weatherconditions. He was very helpful. Thanks for letting us stay at your place Rok! Niels and Sanne and Yves
The weather was foggy during our stay at Velika planina and unfortunately we didn't get to see the fairytale view, but the cabin was beautiful, cozy and warm. The cows were friendly and our dog liked it, too.
We stay at this cottage for 3 days with kids (3 and 5 years old) . The time here is the best memory of our trip in Slovenia. The cottage owns the great view of Velika plannia , we enjoyed sunrise, sunset, fogging and even the raining day makes you feel relaxing . Especially the amazing 5 million stars in the mid night. So Incredible! There are mountains with snow on the top which you can easily see in the cottage. Also you can just sit outside the cottage and drink some wine's then enjoy every moment. Outside the cottage there's a BBQ place and you could chop the firewood there. We made a competition of chopping fire woods with kids. That's one of the special experience for us too.
Velika Planina has lots great view to see and the best nature place for kids to enjoy. We went to a lovely church which took about 30 mins walk with kids and played there. My little boy even fell asleep when he lied on the grass. So cute! From there you can see lots of cottages and enjoy the sunshine.
About this cottage, it's very clean , new and well-equipped. There are 4 single beds in the attic which is the most enjoyable secret base for the kids. I love the stove most, just lay down on the sofa and looking at it which makes you unwind. Rok is the best host I meet. He always be in touch and provides lots info. before you traveling. He even prepared a welcome board in Chinese with our name. On the way to the cottage, Rok introduce some info. of Velika planina , good to know more about the place you're going to stay. I defiantly recommend this wonderful fairytale place and best host to who is looking for a perfect trip here.
It was a family trip. We were there only two days but in those two days we saw so many things such as an amazing thunder, beautiful waking up of the sun, the big forest rabits and other creatures, but the most beautiful part was the house we were living in. Everything was so tidy, the beds were clean and so soft. There was a place for a romantic evening, for a children play and even for a midnight sauna time. The owner prepared the nicest welcome and we were able to realy relax there. The place were amazing, the owner is incredible - I would really recomend it to everyone who wants to run away from the urban area.
