In a renovated traditional family house, our holiday apartments are surrounded by picturesque views and superb walking country in an area rich with summer and winter activities for the whole family. We offer a perfect base for intrepid explorers and a peaceful haven for relaxation. We chose the house for its ideal location in a tranquil village surrounded by beautiful scenery, yet just 1.8 km from the busy tourist resort of Bled. The house has a lawned garden, with pleasant spaces for eating out, relaxing in the sun, or chilling out with a glass of wine after a day’s activities. There are 3 apartments: one with 2 bedrooms, boasting balconies with exceptional views and the others with 1 bedroom, one having its own private access directly onto the garden and terrace. Each apartment is equipped with everything you need for a comfortable holiday, including multi-channel TV, DVD player, books, travel guides, maps, free WiFi internet connection and fully equipped kitchens. Getting around is easy from our apartments. If you enjoy walking or cycling, lots of astounding routes start right from our door. For the more adventurous the Julian Alps provides hiking and biking opportunities at all levels of difficulty. To go further afield public transport from Bled is excellent. Alternatively, car hire is available in the town or at the airport. There are coach tours to many tourist attractions. If you have a car, there is easy access to the main AutoRoute and all the many attractions of Slovenia. You are also only about 30 minutes away from Italy and Austria. Try swimming in Lake Bled in summer, or biking, canoeing, rafting, pony-trekking, fishing, golf, mountaineering and much, much more. This beautiful country also offers many sightseeing opportunities including the Julian Alps and the famous Triglav National Park as well as many places of historical and cultural interest. Centrally placed for the six major ski resorts accessed with the Bohinj lift pass, our holiday apartments are ideally placed for those who enjoy variety in their skiing holiday. After heavy snowfall, a cross-country skiing trail is marked out linking our and other villages to Bled. If golf is your thing, the 18 hole Kings Golf Course at Bled is believed to be one of the most beautiful in the world, surrounded by spectacular mountain scenery.
For young children there is plenty to do, with lots of playgrounds and plenty of opportunities for mixing sunshine with water, either in rivers and lakes or swimming pools. Also, for those not tied to school holidays, spring and autumn are beautiful times in Slovenia, ideal for rambling the many way-marked routes.

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: We are a retired English couple who discovered Lake Bled in 2006 when returning from a caravan holiday in Montenegro and Croatia. We liked the country and its people so much that we came back and bought a house. We were still working in the UK at this time, so we renovated the house, divided it into 3 separate apartments and entered the holiday rental business. In 2010 when we retired, we came to live in Slovenia, but continued the rental business as a source of income. During our years of renting we have been privileged to be hosts to lots of wonderful people, from all over the world. We hope you will visit us soon!
Why the Owner Chose Bled: We looked all over Slovenia for a property then chose this house because of its fantastic views and its location close to Bled but within a village community rather than the anonymity of a tourist resort.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: Fantastic views, easy access to routes around Slovenia, close to Bled and its Lake, superb walks on the doorstep ..........
