Subject: Ljubljana apartment

Please help: I am trying to locate an apartment in Ljubljana to stay for a week in June/July and seem to have exhausted all my leads. I've found only one broker over the internet (Tour As, aka,, but they have only one apartment that may be available and in any case won't reserve until 30 days before arrival. The Ljubljana city tourist office could not help. The suites in the hotels are probably beyond our budget (e.g., 200 - 280 Euro/night at the Hotel Slon).

(The reason we don't want to stay in a hotel is that we're traveling with our six-year-old daughter and know from experience that the difference between a successful trip and misery is the extra space and flexibility that an apartment provides.)

Any advice at all will be greatly appreciated. Thank you (and thanks again to everyone who responded to my earlier post about northeastern Italy, we've settled on a place in Verona).
