We knew very little about Slovenia before we visited earlier this month, apart from the fact that it has a lot of trees AND is the only country in the world with LOVE in its name (sLOVEnia ?)
We did drive through it last October, but without stopping – sorry, Slovenia – as we were desperate to catch the ferry from Trieste to Greece.
So now was our chance to discover more about this small, but perfectly formed country, in the heart of Europe.
Sadly our schedule meant that we were only able to spend four nights there, so we are by no means experts.
But we packed a lot into those four days and nights, met some lovely people, saw some fabulous countryside, and had a great time in its lively capital Ljubljana.
We would heartily recommend you to visit Slovenia if you have not been before. It is motorhome friendly – in fact Adria-Mobil is a Slovenian company, and it offers everything from Adriatic beaches to Alpine ski-ing.
Here, we offer some basic information about the two places we stayed, with a few personal opinions!
The prices are the ones we paid (using our ACSI discount in Ljubljana), and may not necessarily be available in the future.
‘All services included’ means you don’t have to pay any extra for electricity, wifi or showers – though everywhere charges extra for their washing machines.
Ljubljana Resort, Ljubljana
N 46.097778, E 14.518889.
€19 per night, plus €2.50 one-off recycling tax, plus €1.27 per day tourist tax, plus €1.20 per person registration charge.
All main services included – site wifi wasn’t working during our stay in mid-May, but free wifi was available at the reception or in the restaurant.
The bus stop is right outside the entrance – there are several buses each hour that take around 20 minutes to reach the city centre.
The toilet facilities were great, contrary to some web reviews.
Ljubljana is a great city! And thanks to Nina Kosir, whom we met through the Classic Hymer Facebook group, for showing us some of its delights, including its craft beer and red wine!
We look forward to returning the favour when she and her partner Igor come to Scotland in their classic Hymer.
Brajda Camp, Storje
N 45.737423, E 13.926986.
€16 per night, plus €3 per night electricity, plus €0.67 per person per day tourist tax. All services included.
Grass – on uneven ground.
This is essentially a small camp site in someone’s garden – the hosts are really friendly and generous, and the place is lovely!
There are a few sheltered spots for tents, and room for maybe a dozen or more caravans and campers, depending on how tightly they are parked.
The small shower/toilet/washing up area is very well done, and the chemical toilet disposal point is the cleanest I’ve used, anywhere. There are also several fresh water points.
Only downsides were the lack of a grey water drain, and the wifi signal wasn’t very strong away from the main building.
It’s a bit off the beaten track, but is in a beautiful setting, and the village Storje has a great restaurant/bar.
- The official Slovenian visitor website has a really helpful list of sites for motorhomes – though the Brajda Camp that we stayed at isn’t on there. It has its own website here
- Explore “elegant and leafy” Ljublana here
- Adria Mobil makes some great vans.
- The (only) restaurant/bar in Storje is Gostilna Skok.
