About elaine hennin

We are a very happy couple from Altrincham in Manchester. twelve years ago, with the birth of our half-Slovenian granddaughter, we decided to buy a homely property in a scenic part of the country. Picking Lake Bled wasn't a difficult decision, and as soon as we saw this house, the scenery, and the view over and across Bled, we knew it was the place for us. Since then, we have spent each summer gradually renovating it to make it our dream property; we have renovated each room, added a wood-burning stove and new bathrooms, built a summer terrace above the garage, and feel that it is now the perfect home for a comfortable and relaxing trip away.

elaine hennin purchased this house in 2004

Why elaine hennin chose Slovenia

It is the perfect place for us. The location offers us the perfect combination of a natural and scenic getaway with so many amazing sights and walks for us to go on while at the same time being ever so close to the very centre of the busier Lake Bled.

What makes this house unique

The very best thing about the property, though, for us, is our neighbours. Every one of them is just so lovely and willing to go that extra mile out of their way to help us and make us feel at home. Each time we arrive at the house for our holidays we find that they will have aired the house (in summer) or prepared the stove so that it is nice and warm for us (in winter) and are always happy to meet and greet any guests and offer them the most authentic of local delicacies, advice and experiences.

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 (inc boys 12 and 7) and this was the perfect house for us . We couldn't believe the views from the numerous balconies when we arrived and made the most of them all for breakfast in the mornings and a beer/wine /supper in the evenings .The house itself has a lovely layout , was really comfortable and we didn't need anything more . The location was great , wonderful walks from the door , very short drive/cycle to the lake and central to all the multiple activities to do in the area. It suited us as a quiet , beautiful place to return to every evening and we didn't want to leave . The owners always got back to us straight away and were immensely helpful . We really really hope we can return again and would recommend this wonderful home for anyone who enjoys home comforts whilst surrounded by the great outdoors.Thank you so much for a brilliant place to stay .

Lovely House and Location

  • 4 of 5

We spent a fab week at this house with our 2 teenage kids. We were very unlucky with the weather which was unusually wet for the time of year, but we still had a great stay. Bled area is really beautiful and there are lots and lots of things to do.

The house is great - very comfortable and quite quirky in a good way. Very well equipped and everything in good working order. We found the last part of the drive through the village very steep and a bit narrow, but the village is very peaceful. Shop within walking distance.

Would love to go back and would totally recommend Slovenia.

Lovely house at beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 10 days in this lovely house located in a quiet village. A perfect location for an active holiday in a beautiful scenery. The local people are very friendly and helpfull.

The house is well-equiped and the local shop is within walking distance.

It was the first time we booked through Ownersdirect or similar sites. The enquiry went very well and the Owner was also very cooperative in reducing the international bank transfer costs. With the directions provided by the Owner it was no problem at all finding the house.

We visited the Vintgar gorge, hiked and cycled, swam in lake Bled and the kids also went rafting and canyoning. After an active day it was nice to relax and dine on one of the terraces either in the sun or in the shade. Most of the evenings we watched a nice film from the extensive DVD collection.

We had a very nice dinner at the nearby Gostilna Kurej.

It did not bother us but we can imagine that especially for families with young children it could be relevant to know that the bedrooms can (almost) not be blinded.

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 10 days in this beautiful local cottage, the setting is amazing - nestling in the lovely village of Zasip. On a hill overlooking the church and surrounded by stunning mountains. We sat on the veranda listening to the sound of goats bells tinkling from the neighbouring fields.

The house is cosey and comfortable and very well equipped, all our needs were catered for.

The hospitality of the local people is wonderful and there is loads to do in the surrounding countryside. We walked, cycled, swam in lake Bled and rowed a boat to the enchanting island and visited the amazing caves at Postonja.

We will definitely be staying again next year.

Super Place to go!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed several times here and love it. The house is well equipped , the bed comfortable and the views wonderful!!! The neighbours are helpful. The shop, pub and bus are 5 minutes down the road. The property is clean and well maintained .There are lots of local walks and Lake Bled is beautiful just to sit by.Bus into Llubljana takes just over an hour. Kranska Gora also an hour. We dont have a car so use public transport which efficient comfortable and cheap.

We recommend the property and Slovenia to anyone who will listen!!!
