Stylish and minimalist in design, this is a tranquil mountain retreat found in the heart of the Slovenian alpine wilderness.
Nebesa is comprised of just four luxury chalets sat high on a mountain plateau overlooking the village of Livek and the cyan Soca River below. Glass fronts and a private terrace maximise the vistas, while inside a mezzanine attic bedroom sits above a large open plan living area, kitchen and bathroom.
The main building houses the communal dining area, sociable terrace and a well equipped kitchen. While there’s no restaurant here, there’s a cold room filled with supplies of local cheeses, cured meats, breads, snacks, beer and urns of local wines to wash it all down with. There’s also an honesty bar with for the finer wines. The renowned restaurant Hisa Franko, run by Nibesa’s owners’ daughter, is just 20 minutes away.
Hike from the lodge up the mountain for views across Slovenia and into Italy, borrow mountain bikes, visit local farms and discover the fascinating history of the area at the nearby Kobarid Museum. There’s also the adventure activities of the Soca Valley, such as canyoning, kayaking and rafting, as well some excellent fly fishing to try. After a day of adventure, return to heaven to relax in the glass-fronted saunas and yoga studio.
