The hills are alive with this sustainable tiny house. While those might not be the lyrics to the iconic The Sound Of Music song, it doesn’t make it any less true when addressing this glamping haven. Perched on the mountainside in Slovenska Bistrica, Slovenia, this tiny accommodation is all about modern simplicity.
The one-room vacation rental can comfortably fit two guests, complete with a queen-sized bed, table, drawers, and shelves for additional space. A bathroom facility is located nearby for convenience, where linens and towels are available—plus bathrobes and slippers, when the day calls for it.
The wooden hut is designed to blend in with its natural surroundings, which you can gaze at from inside through the floor-to-ceiling windows. Guests can enjoy the view from the outside, too, thanks to the quaint terrace furnished with a table and chairs. And at night, take advantage of outdoor jacuzzi where you can relax under the stars.
There is an open pit as well as a larger fireplace ideal for barbecuing, complimented by a small outdoor kitchen. But if you’re not in the mood to cook or when the weather doesn’t call for it, the nearby town of Slovenska Bistrica is only a five-minute drive away, where restaurants, bars, and bakeries await hungry travelers.
An added bonus: The host provides a breakfast basket filled with local products and a welcome drink upon arrival. And for an additional charge, organic, homemade meals can be provided inside the hut.
Visitors can take advantage of the many outdoor activities that the environment makes easy to do— from bird watching to boating and even mountain biking, if you’re feeling adventurous. There are also various ancient castles, churches, and museums in the area, and the breathtaking Boč Mountain is just an hour away.
Rates start at $173 per night, according to the Glamping Hub listing. Bookings require a two-night minimum for this dreamy getaway, but something tells us that isn’t going to be a problem.
