This week’s property, the first of the year, is some distance from our most common area of Triglav National Park, but one in a location that’s ideal for many. It’s in Čatež ob Savi, a thermal spa centre not far from the Croatian border, with excellent highways connections (along the A2) to both Zagreb (30 minutes) and Ljubljana (45 minutes).
It’s a four-bedroom house that comes with 987 m2 outdoor space and views of the Sava, a river that’s often put to recreational use, suitable for rafting, kayaking and canoeing and fishing, among other pursuits.
The property is currently on the market for €450,000 and is being handled by Think Slovenia, who describe it as follows:
Spacious modern family home built with high quality materials on the edge of a quiet residential area adjoining the Sava River just 1km from the famous thermal spa centre Čatež ob Savi and a few minutes, drive to the attractive town of Brežice, mid-way between Novo Mesto and Zagreb.
