About John and Elaine Pearson
We are an 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 renovated the house, divided it into 3 separate apartments and entered the holiday rental business. 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 our apartments soon!
John and Elaine Pearson purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why John and Elaine Pearson 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. Where better to enjoy the beauty and charm of Slovenia than in a village, among local people rather than tourists? If you need the amenities of the town, Bled is just 5 minutes away by car. Better still, take a 30 minute stroll to the town and enjoy the beautiful countryside.
What makes this Apartment unique
Fantastic views, easy access to routes around Slovenia, close to Bled and its Lake, superb walks on the doorstep ..........In the village there are 2 restaurants and bars, a well-stocked grocery store and a bike share scheme. If you like walking, there a lots of beautiful walks from our doorstep.

High quality apartment 1.8 km from Bled
We had a wonderful time at this beautifully appointed apartment which is a short distance away from the crowds in Bled during the holiday season. The apartment has everything you could need for a couple and is within easy walking distance of Bled. There is so much to do within easy driving distance of Bled in this beautiful country.
The apartment was perfect for us, very clean and set in a beautiful location. John was very helpful.
Great time at this beautiful apartment. John was very helpful. Highly recommend this property. The location is very tranquil
6 nights in June 2019
We were very happy to stay in the bottom floor of this cute house in a quiet neighborhood but 30 min walking distance from Lake Bled. Parking onsite and a nice terrace we enjoyed in the evenings after our daily excursions in the area. All amenities were there including a nice wood stove we used one evening. Owners are just upstairs if anything is needed. Highly recommend this property!
Thank you for writing this review. We prefer the calm of a village rather than a busy resort and we are pleased that you agree.
A great apartment in a superb location
The apartment was the best equipped we have ever stayed in. It was very comfortable, everything worked perfectly and the owners could not have been more helpful. We had a most enjoyable week using the village as a base to explore the area - which is brilliant. The local bar / restaurant serves excellent food at a great price and we ate there 3 times in a week. The local walks are well worth doing - it’s a very beautiful and interesting area. Overall we had a wonderful week and I highly recommend it.
Lovely, clean, well laid out apartment
We had a great time at the Terrace apartment. Lake Bled was within walking distance and the village was very peaceful. Our hosts were very helpful and friendly. Thank you for a great stay
We would highly recommend the garden apartment. It was well equipped with good quality furnishings and linen; spotlessly clean and with reliable Wi-fi and good choice of free movies.
John and Elaine were excellent hosts - unobtrusive but on hand if needed.
It’s a 25 min walk to the centre of Bled and lit sufficiently to do it at night.
There are lots of walks that can be done from the door ( we didn’t have a car) and we also used public bus service to go to Ljubljana and to lake Bohinj. Would recommend the ‘national treasures’trip to see the stunning scenery of the Julian Alps.
We also enjoyed relaxing in the tidy garden - and a picnic by the river just 10 min stroll down the hill.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review and for your kind comments. It was a pleasure to meet you. We are pleased that the excellent weather gave you the opportunity to enjoy our garden. You made the most of your stay and our location enabled you to get around quite easily, both locally and further afield. Our guides to local walks have proved so popular that we are writing some more.
Here are some of our favourite places:
Meals on the Terrace at Petelinis bar and restaurant. About 200 metres from the apartment.
Coffee on the Terrace at Ribno Hotel.
The food and atmosphere at Osteria Peglez’n in Bled.
Coffee at ápropos in the Gadaffi Centre (Local name for the concrete shopping centre in Bled)
Coffee and cake, or maybe a meal outside at Vila Prešerin next to Lake Bled.
Lunch-time special meal at Villa Podvin, on the old road to Ljubljana, just past Radovlica.
Coffee, cake or ice-cream at the “Piano Café” (our name) in the Radovlica medieval square (on the left of the square).
Lolitas coffee bar next to the river in Ljubljana. Near the "Three Bridges".
