Nebesa: The Slovenian mountain retreat


Nebesa in Slovenian means "heaven" and this wonderful hotel comes about as close as it possibly could do to justifying its name. Four self contained one bedroom chalets with award winning architecture sit in a wonderful position high in the hills above Kobarid each with breathtaking views of the Julian Alps and the Soca Valley with a communal pool, wellness centre and living areas. If you want to really get away from it all - and do so in comfort and style - then this is the place!



This is quite a hard section to write as the words "stunning", "breathaking" etc are much overused and tend to lose their true meaning. But in the case of Nebesa you should take them at face value - the location really does leave most guests stunned on arrival and deeply content during their stay there. Located at 900m altitude above the Soca Valley with spectacular views down to the river and across and up to the Julian Alps, the view is ever changing and people find themselves spending many hours of the day here simply staring at it as the weather and light changes. Situated on the site on a former ski centre there are no other houses in the immediate vicinity so the location is fantastically peaceful, tranquil and feels like a true escape (another overused term that needs to be taken at face value for Nebesa!) from the daily grind. The nearest village is Livek, a small settlement just a few minutes from the border with Italy, whilst 15 minutes down the hill is lovely historic Kobarid which offers some of Slovenia's best restaurants and access to various river sports on the Soca.

Distance to the nearest…
Sights The view from the hotel would certainly qualify as a sight, but otherwise it is 15 minutes to Kobarid a small historic town with fascinating museum dedicated to the region's major role in the first world war, starting point for various river sports and mountain hikes, home to some of Slovenia's best restaurants. Further afield in each direction are the various attractions of the Soca valley.
Restaurants Nebesa doesnt have a restaurant, but offers guests everything they need for breakfast in their cabin and has a lovely communal dining room which is stocked with local hams, cheeses and other delicacies for you to help yourself to. The nearest restaurants are in and around Kobarid circa 15 minutes drive - and these include some of Slovenia's best restaurants.
Bars There is a communal dining room with local wines for you to sample. Otherwise the nearest bar is Kobarid.
Distance to the nearest airport(s)

90 minutes drive to Trieste airport. 120 minutes drive to Ljubljana / Klagenfurt airports

Other useful local transport connections

Local bus connections run up and down the Soca Valley to Ljubljana and elsewhere in Slovenia, but are relatively infrequent.


You will be glad to hear that Nebesa offers a standard of accommodation that is justified by such a fantastic location. The quality of the accommodation makes it the Slovenian mountain retreat as the prize winning achitecture of the four self contained chalets (which each retain a sense of privacy and seclusion from each other) means that whatever the weather, you are happy (or rather delighted) to be sitting half way into the clouds on the side of a mountain. Each chalet has its own terrrace overlooking the view, living room, bathroom and small kitchen downstairs and mezzanine bedroom upstairs. The chalets are glass fronted so there really is no escape from that view. There is a communal building with dining room where you can enjoy local hams, cheeses and wines and meet the other guests or friendly owners. There is also a separate area with small pool, jacuzzi and fitness area. Once you have retreated up your Slovenian mountain you may find it very hard to leave!
