Bohinj house description

Chalet Floranneve is a wonderful home ... not just a rental house. It is fully furnished with some lovely old pieces that have been shipped over from the UK. There is a large mountain view family sitting room at the top of the house with a 42' cable TV, video, CD, hifi & wifi ..

Floranneve is a different house from most. As well as having a large living area, it also has a large and spacious master bedroom with a conservatory style balcony, which is great for Mums and Dads or couples who enjoy their quite time together. ... it's always nice to be able to separate from the party when you need some peace and quiet.

The house also has large 3 - 4 metre panoramic windows on the first and second floors .... this is also different from any other house in Bovec ... open these windows and you can almost feel like you are outside in the fresh air!

Under-floor heating in various rooms makes the house warm and snug in the winter.
.
Ground floor bedroom is like a studio apartment... This (self contained if required) area also offers perfect space for couples wanting a little privacy or teenagers wanting to chill out and relax.

Bedroom 4 is the 'platform' room that is situated in the apex of the loft area above the sitting room and kithcen area ... (it has a head hieght in the middle of 180 cm) Please see photos... there 2 single futon beds that can be joined together to make a double ... it is great space for kids ... our children call this the 'tree house' room! . For obvious reasons It is not suitable for the unsteady, infirm or for those requiring privacy.

The house has 3 convenient entrances.

Bovec is approx 90 minutes from three airports - Ljubljana, Trieste and Klagenfurt. Also, it is under 3 hours from Venice and Graz airports. To make the most of the available activities car hire is recommended and is available from all airports.. Transfers are available too.

                              Year Purchased: 2006

                              About the owner: Much to my childrens amusement I am now only a couple of years away from getting my free London bus pass! I am married with three children and have lived and worked in London for the last 38 years. My family and I love adventure and so living in the city gives us a big incentive to get out and enjoy the wonderful places the world has to offer, I fell in love with Bovec whilst riding my motorcycling back to London from Dubrovnik in 2006. It was immediately obvious after only being in Bovec and the Soca valley for a day, it was a very special and secret place with warm friendly people. I bought a house here 3 months later in the centre of town. I spent a couple of long years renovating it and now I come here regularly with my wife and three children. Bovec is a great family place with so much to see and do... everytime we come here we always find something new adventure (and eat and drink !)

                              Why the Owner Chose Bohinj:
                              Floranneve is a different house from most. It has a large and spacious master bedroom with a conservatory style balcony, which is great for Mums and Dads or couples who enjoy their quite time together. ... it's always nice to be able to separate from the party when you need some peace and quiet. The house also has large 3 - 4 metre panoramic windows on the first and second floors .... this is also different from any other house in Bovec ... open these windows and you can almost feel like you are outside in the fresh air! The sitting room is over 40 square metres, so there is lots of room for everyone to relax and enjoy themselves.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              Although Floranneve is one complete family house it has seperate areas which allows us to enjoy some peace and quiet away from the rest of our pals in the house... when we want it ! Floranneve is located in the centre of town, ... close to all shops and restaurants, but still a very peaceful area… AND IT IS ONLY A 2 MINUTE DRIVE TO THE RIVER SOCA… THE KAYAK RIVER OF EUROPE
