About Mark Gravestock
Trish and I bought our little slice of Slovenia back in July 2007 after a family holiday and falling in love with the country, since then we have spent as much time as we can at the chalet, and enjoyed many of the numerous activities on offer in this beautiful country. From day one we wanted as many people as possible to experience this delightful country and have now welcomed over 100 families to the chalet for their holidays. Hopefully we'll be able to welcome you in the near future !

Great location and views
Small property but with beautiful balcony and views over the valley.
Not suitable for anyone nervous or unable to cope with very steep stairs
Cosy chalet up in the hills
Although compact, this chalet has everything for relaxing holidays in the Slovenian hills & mountains. The chalet is located within a short driving distance from the pleasant small city Kamnik only, but still, one can easily enjoy a sense of "remoteness". Having said that, the chalet offers a very high level of comfort (two bathrooms, wifi, flat screen TV with netflix, bluetooth speaker) and the owners have done a marvelous job in decorating it. We were also impressed by the creativity in terms of storage room, the line for drying laundry, the efficient use of space in the kitchen, the availability of a tick removal device, etc. As also some highlights of the country (Ljubljana, Lake Bled, Predjama castle) are within a comfortable driving distance,, this enjoyable place is located very well. One can mingle with the crowds during the day and have a relaxing dinner on the terrace far away from other tourists in the evening. Recommended!
A wonderful place to restore body and soul!
The house was cosy and comfortable, inside and out. The owners have provided everything to make the stay as comfortable as possible. The stairs take a bit of getting used to - it will be a novelty to walk forward down the stairs at home! The drive from the bottom of the valley to the house is quite narrow and steep, the journey is fine once it has been attempted a couple of times. The house is not as isolated as the pictures may imply, but the neighbours are unobtrusive and friendly. We had the local elderly retriever visit us regularly - I suspect he thinks the tourists are a soft touch for scraps!
Wow an idyllic location , peaceful and picturesque.
We had a fantastic relaxing holiday. The accommodation was perfect for us. The chalet had everything we needed. Guidance and advice was issued when requested. There is copious amounts of travel information located inside chalet. The shelves were bulging with dvds catering for all tastes. Slovenia has breathtaking beauty and scenery. The people are friendly and welcoming. On two occasions we had to be diverted around roadblocks ( bin and sewage lorries) farmers guided us on little cut throughs. Overall a holiday to remember and we'll be back. Thank you .
Thanks for your comments Chris, I'm pleased you enjoyed your holiday (especially after your poor start when getting lost) and would love to welcome you back in the future. Mark.
Absolutely lovely property tucked away on the side of the mountain. Very clean and comfortable with all the amenities you could need. The owners were wonderful to work with, even sending us local maps and pamphlets to our home before our arrival. So peaceful to sit on deck and relax.
Beautiful Slovenian chalet, peaceful location overlooking the valley
We had a wonderful 2 week stay in Brezje Nad Kamnikom. The chalet is very well equipped and nicely decorated, there were many DVD's and books to keep us amused in the evening with good Wifi. The chalet is in a very convenient position to reach all the sights in the region, we travelled about 1000km in our time there. The village of Brezje is very peaceful with farms and lots of fruit trees. You can walk easily into the hills to explore. The chalet views and sunsets were lovely. Kamnikom town is very pleasant and only a short drive away, we can recommend 7Burger if you have to go shopping at the Hofer and need a reward.
The close proximity of the ALPs is a real draw along with Logaska Dolina and Velika Planina. Slovenia is a wonderful country and we would go back in a heartbeat. The chalet would be a great place to stay again, exploring the places that we didn't quite manage in the 2 weeks. Thank you for allowing us to stay.
Thank you for your review Louise, we're really pleased that you enjoyed your stay at the chalet, although I'm not where else you could visit on a return trip after clocking up 1000km !

Slovenia is located in the Eastern Alps and has borders with Croatia, Austria and Italy. English is widely spoken and the currency is the Euro.
Kamnik is a picturesque town 10 minutes drive from the chalet. Tourists visit Kamnik to see fine examples of Baroque architecture and to enjoy the excellent choice of bars, shops, restaurants, and pavement cafe's. Visit the tourist information centre to get the best out of your stay. The Chalet is within easy reach of Lakes Bled and Bohinj, Triglav National Park, The Capital Ljubliana, world acclaimed Postojna Caves, cable-car trips to the mountain pastures of Velika Planina and a choice of ski resorts close by for winter skiing & sledging. Many more activities are listed below.
Ski: Slovenia has over 25 ski centres 2 of which are very close to the chalet.
The local ski resort of Krvavec is 1450-1971m above sea level, it stretches over 106 hectares and is only 9 miles from the chalet.
Krvavec has been awarded the coveted crystal snowflake award by consistently being voted best ski resort in Slovenia.
There is an easily accessible car park at the base of the gondola with parking for 1600 cars, and the newly installed gondola takes skiers to the slopes in less than 7 minutes.
There is a ski school with a full range of instruction and equipment for hire. A designated area exists for snowboarding, with half pipe and a number of jumps.
Velika planina is also close by (cablecar 5 miles) family skiing is especially popular since the wide gentle terrain does not demand great skiing skills. A great attraction for family groups is the sledge trail at Velika Planina, sledges can be hired at reasonable rates. For more ski / snow info CONTACT US FOR OUR WEBSITE
