"To sum it up.... "Wow". We came across this on trip advisor and thought it looked great, but it's even better in real life!
Six of us stayed and we were amazed at the cleanliness, comfort and space for such a reasonable price. The underfloor heating was greatly welcomed as we visited when there was heavy snow!
The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful for the duration. They really helped in making our break stress-free.
I will definitely definitely Definitely be using this apartment again should I visit Bled within a group. It's more than perfect and really can't find one single fault about it. Thank you Colleen, Mirjam and Karmen!"
"The house was absolutely perfect for us and made a perfect base for exploring Slovenia. The kitchen / sitting area is large and well equipped and the balcony is lovely".
"The house was so well equipped that we could have left so much at home. It really had everything you could think of. Would absolutely recommend this for large families!"
About the Owner
I am a married woman with six children. I visit Bled at least 6 times a year. I am a teacher and bring groups out regularly. I like the beautiful countryside. I love to hike, walk, cycle, swim and ski. Most of all I love the Slovene people who are very like the Irish. They love the outdoors and the glass of wine or beer in the evening. This, future retirement home, provides something for all my family and the extra guest en suite allows us to bring out our extended family and friends.
Year property purchased: 2004
Why this location?
We just fell in love with Bled and bought this property on our first visit. We have not regretted it one bit. We have an extended family and everybody of all ages loves to come to Bled. There is something here for everyone, in all seasons. We bought a large property that needed to be renovated and its location was the key. There were large out houses and my husband thought it would be fun to have a business interest in Slovenia also. We turned the main house into a hostel, which is managed by local Slovene girls, Karmen and Mirjam, and we renovated the whole property to give us a large private house beside it. It is lovely to amble down to lake, or the local bar for some slovene wine, to walk or cycle around the lake or follow the boys down to the lake side supervised pools.
What are the unique benefits of the property?
Bled is an Alpine resort of breathtaking beauty, like a picture post card of a Disney wonderland. The vibrant town surrounds a crystal clear, spa lake, fed by the pure, green, melt water from the Julian Alps. In the summer the rivers are cool and the lakeside, supervised pools, are warm for bathing. In the winter it is crisp, dry and cold. Some winters the lake freezes and Bled is engulfed in snow, The snow capped Julian Alps are the background to this fairytale scenery. Slovenes are well known for their love of the outdoors and this is the perfect starting off point for days of fun, surrounded by the outstanding scenery of Triglav National Park. The town of Bled offers so many activities and attractions that it is easier to just arrive and follow what ever takes your fancy!
