Relax with your friends in a big, typical Karst house!
This 2-floor 180m2 house has 3 bedrooms, 2 living rooms, dinning room, bathrooms, laundry and a big kitchen. It is ideal for whole family gathering and reminiscing of memories past. In the villa we have space for 7 people with the option to add a few beds more.
Charming old village house has a hidden garden and renewed interiors. A balanced mix of traditional past and modern future will make you relax. Mighty door takes you inside a beautiful courtyard, where you can relax in comfortable garden seats or hammock, prepare a grill and enjoy the falling stars in the night.
Located in the middle of Karst, in the village Dane, surrounded with many points of interest:
- 500 MTB trails (possible hiring of bicycles)
- 100 climbing directions (10 climbing spots)
- 30 exploration caves
- 5 horse-riding stalls,
- hiking trails, golf course.... (guided tours available)
- Karst wine road
Nearby you can find world famous attractions as Lipica stud farm, Postojna Caves, Skocjan caves park and Sezana - small town with relaxing places of interest like botanic garden, spa centre and lots of nature.
The nearest city is Sezana, where you can find public transport in all directions such as bus or train. There are 3 big supermarkets, 2 gas stations, 4 banks, post office...
It is just a shot away from Trieste (Italy) and an hour drive away from the capital Ljubljana (Slovenia).
The guests are staying in the house with a closed yard, equipped with garden seats, hammock, dinner table, barbeque, inflatable pools for children...everything to enjoy your vacation. Each group of guests is staying alone in the house and in the yard.
The guests are welcome by the host and I am present also at the check-out. Communication with guests is on daily basis either personally either by messages by phone or mail.
Vila Dane is located in the village Dane, just outside the town of Sezana. Dane is a peaceful village, on the border of the forest, but just a shot away from the town where different pubs, restaurants, pizzeria, supermarket...can be found. It is a perfect place to take long walks in the countryside, play with kids in the nature or take your dogs to play on open place.
When the sun is going down, you can relax on the terrace, sip a glass of wine and enjoy the beautiful fire-like colors over the landscape.
The town of Sezana is just 2km away, so you can go there also by foot or by bicycle, which you can hire right on the spot. However to visit all the other sights (Skocjan caves, Lipica,...) i suggest to have a car, that is also possible to rent right on the spot.
Although there were just two of us, Vila Dane is the perfect location for larger groups or families. Preparing meals was easy in the extremely well-appointed kitchen. The rustic, private courtyard is beautiful.
As much as we enjoyed our stay, nothing compares to Sasha's (our host) hospitality. He was always gracious and helpful. Sasha is also very much an outdoors person. Aside from recommending this location for families, we would also highly recommend this location for those wanting to cycle or hike.
Thank you Sasha!
Staying at Sasha's Vila was a great pleasure. The place is well equipped, clean and with a lot of space to rest talk and enjoy your time. Since to vila is old (but well kept) we got a bit different sense than usual stay in hotel.
Sasha was a perfect host, full with advices and tips about the “what to do” in the area and how to manage
Another fantastic airbnb experience
Thanks again Sasha for your advice and hospitality

The house was very big, clean and comfortable. Sasha is a very great host, gentle and very useful even if we didn't meet many times. Staying there we could visit a lot without any problem because the place is near to the highway and easy to find. I suggest Sasha to everyone that would like to visit that part of Slovenia
We spent a wonderful time in Villa Dane towards the end of July; my wife and I with three kids, my parents, and my sister and her boyfriend. When we arrived to town Sasha helped us find the right way to the house after the GPS had sent us the wrong way and then showed us around the house and last but not least took us to the wine cellar for the wine and liquor tasting that we had read about in reviews from previous guests.
The house is very well equipped and we had plenty of space between the nine of us. We had a great time chopping wood in the courtyard to make fire for the grill/bbq. The courtyard of the house was actually the place we spent most of our afternoons and evenings after exploring the exciting and incredibly varying landscape in this wonderful country.
An example of Sasha's hospitality is that when I asked him about running paths around the village he showed up the next morning in running gear ready to run the 7km route with me so I wouldn't get lost. Also he gave us good advice about all the sites that we were planning to visit and much more.
Thank you so much Sasha for making this the perfect vacation for us !!!
Our stay at Vila Dane was more than wonderfull. Its very central position enables you to visit the many beautifull sites in the region: the sturdy castles, the lavenderfields, the caves that penetrate the Carst, the fantastic city of Trieste, the small carstvillages on either side of the border,.... Moreover it lies on the crossroads between eastern, Western and central Europe: we had friends from Belgium on their way to Croatia joining us for lunch, friends from Belgrade on their way to France staying for dinner, friends from Trieste for a glass of wine in the small hours. But equaly important: the Vila was a haven of peace and quiet!
Sasha and Jasna are the best hosts you can imagine: friendly, discrete, helpfull, welcoming, open,....! And the vegetables from their garden are more tastful than the ones bought at the supermarket.
Thank you Jasna and Sasha!
We'll meet again.
An absolutely amazing place to stay, we couldn't believe how lucky we were to have found Villa Dane. Not only is the Villa itself spacious, beautifully renovated, impeccably clean, comfortable, and full of charm, Sasha was an outstanding host. He welcomed us at the door, showed us around every detail, frequently checked in and provided invaluable tips and information on the local culture and surrounding sights. It is hard to say enough about this incredible spot, and from the minute we arrived we were planning our return trip. A must visit!
Excellent host,full of genuine warmth and consideration for his guests. He could not do more for us. We learnt so much through him along with seeing places we wouldn't have thought to visit. His love and pride for Slovenia and this area is. Exciting and infectious. Sasha's home is equally amazing. So much room and so much charm. It was difficult to leave. A warning. Spend more time here than you think you will need. A perfect base for the coast as well as the karst region and Sasha's hospitality and home and vegetable patch will have you wanting weeks not days here.
I can't say enough about Sasha. Our experience at Vila Dane is memorable, and the value unbeatable! Everything was perfect from Sasha's fast and thorough responses by email, his kindness, offer of local wine upon arrival, help mailing a package, suggestions for day activities... The bed was comfortable, the kitchen stocked, and the house authentic. Although there's wireless, it's difficult to get connected to the network unless you stand in a particular spot. Not Sasha's fault: the thick stone walls are hard to penetrate. We would come back here in a heartbeat.
Our first stay in Slovenia could not have been better! Sasha and Jasna kindly waited for our delayed arrival and were ready to greet us with homemade liquors and wines. The old farmhouse has been tastefully renovated and the kitchen is fully stocked. Sasha even let us raid his herb garden. The enclosed yard was perfect for my two dogs and we spent memorable evenings on the patio cooking with the wood oven. Sasha and Jasna are friendly hosts and ready to share suggestions about what to see and do nearby. I highly recommend that you stay at Vila Dane. We found ourselves comparing all our other accommodations to this terrific place!
