CHARMING COTTAGE FOR 5 IN SLEEPY VILLAGE, CLOSE TO LAKE BLED.

Bohinjska Bela Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2 bathroom, spacious village accommodation.

This large holiday home sits in a sleepy Slovenian village with good restaurants serving local food, beer and wine, while an extensively stocked shop & post office make life simple, allowing you can have time for a relaxing and reinvigorating holiday.

The comfortable accommodation, for 5, is on two levels. Upstairs is a bathroom and two large bedrooms, a double and a double plus single bed. The main bedroom has a balcony ideal for a quiet evening drink, to admire the views and plan the next day. Downstairs is the kitchen, sitting room and large dinning room. The kitchen has a 4 ring hob, oven and plenty of dishes, utensils and cutlery. The sitting room has digital television and a DVD player and discs and a log fire. Another bathroom (with washing machine) and entrance hall complete the accommodation.

Free high speed WiFi Internet and satellite TV is provided.

Outside is secure storage for bikes, skies, climbing equipment, whatever is essential to your sport on holiday. There is also a pretty private area with table and chairs to enjoy meals or merely relax.

You are only 3km from the spectacular Lake Bled, which means in a 45min walk through beech woods you can be on the lakeside enjoying coffee, cake and the bustle of a truly European destination. In winter this part of Slovenia offers some terrific skiing opportunities in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The closest lifts are just 30min away.

Slovenia is well known as a family friendly holiday destination, with any sport you care to name readily available within the care of well qualified English speaking instructors. For example, in summer you may try white water rafting along the clear waters of the Sava River, get the best views of the Julian Alps from a tandem paraglide, fly fish, ride, cycle or walk endless routes. Winter holiday? Skiing for the family at great prices, ice climbing, snow shoe into the forest, all can be happily rounded off in one of the many bars and restaurants.

COTTAGE IDEAL FOR ANY TIME OF YEAR - WE LOVE IT!

  • 5 of 5
We've stayed three times, in late Spring, late Summer and over Christmas. Each time has been lovely. The house is comfortable and well equipped - as vegetarians who often cook for ourselves on holidya, we really appreciate a well-equipped kitchen. Bohinskja Bela is a nice little village about 10 minutes drive from Bled, though you can walk to Bled on footpaths through the woods in about 40 minutes. The neighbours are friendly and helpful. Even when there was lots of snow on the ground at Christmas the roads in the village were completely clear and it was easy to drive around - unlike in Britain!
The cottage has plenty of useful information, along with games, books and DVDs - and we've enjoyed some of these when we've wanted to relax after being out. The information we got before going was accurate and helpful.
There are lots of nice places to visit within about an hour's drive, and we would certainly recommend a car.
Bled itself is beautiful - fairytale in fact - with a lovely lake around which we have taken several nice walks. It's also got a swimming area. The island is worth a visit - don't forget to ring the bell. The castle is also worth seeing and the view over the lake is brilliant.
There are several restaurants in Bled and a great hotel (The Golf) for taking a leisurely Finnish (dry) or Turkish (wet)sauna (but be warned, all clothing is fobidden in the sauna!). It's a lovely feeling luxuriating in the outdoor hot tub, particularly when the air is frosty and there's snow all around.
There's always plenty of entertainment in Bled, from a little dance band in one of the hotels, at Christmas there are activities on the lake and there was a folk festival in the summer while we were there.
Lake Bohinj is also lovely and we had a wonderful walk around it in thick snow a couple of years ago.
Radovljica is a small town not far from Bled where there is a brilliant museum all about bee keeping with a display of the traditionally painted hives and selling some wonderful honey.
Ljubljana is well worth a visit. There's a castle and some museums (we saw a really interesting exhibition about the history of Slovenia) and the town centre has plenty of sights to catch your attention including the interesting bridges and the market and artisan stalls by the river.
We certainly intend to stay again and have recommended the cottage to friends and colleagues. Slovenia is unspoilt and not too touristy and the cottage makes a lovely place to stay.

SPACIOUS PROPERTY IDEAL FOR FAMILY HOLIDAYS

  • 5 of 5
This is a spacious, well maintained house in a lovely village, ideal for using as a base to explore Lake Bled and the surrounding area. The property has large rooms, white walls, modern furnishings and wooden floors, and is particularly well equipped with books, games and an impressive DVD collection. It has some characterful touches such as an old built in oven in the dining room, and a nice balcony to the master bedroom - we also found having two bathrooms a bonus for a family. There is a small patio set up with table and chairs where we enjoyed breakfast every morning. Ralph and Jo are friendly, knowledgeable and attentive hosts - they provided information to us in advance about the cottage and the area, and we benefitted from their advice during the stay of new areas to visit. It was great to have a welcome pack with enough food to see us through an evening meal and a breakfast so that we could settle in immediately. Any minor issues were addressed immediately and we felt welcome to contact them at any time with any queries. The area around Bohinjska Bela and Lake Bled is fantastic - I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who likes active, outdoor holidays - this was our second visit to Slovenia (and this house) and we would definately hope to return again. Bohinjska Bela is a small traditional alpine village with farms and barns surrounded by high mountains - it has two restaurants - both worth visiting -and a well stocked shop. It is five minutes drive from Lake Bled where we enjoyed lazing at the Lido and swimming in the lake - there is also a wide range of places to eat there. We spent most time walking in the Julian Alps - all easily accessible with a car and with some paths from the village - paths are well marked and maps and guide books are provided in the cottage. We also hired bikes in an adjacent valley with a good network of cycle paths, and hired a canoe on the stunning Lake Bohinj (20 mins drive). Lljubljiana is accessible by bus, train or car and makes a great day out to the historic city. Slovenia is such a pleasure to visit - a pristine environment, with lakes, forests and high mountains on your doorstep - I would thoroughly recommend both the cottage and the area to anyone looking for a similar type of holiday.

NICE 4 NIGHT STAY

  • 3 of 5
It was a really nice place to stay for 4 nights. The village is just 10 minutes away from Lake Bled and 1/2 hour from Bohinj. The downstairs room with the fireplace is nice and upstairs has 2 really nice bed rooms. Only problem we had was with the tiny staircase to go up. If you have a large suitcase, it is a pain to get it up. Be very careful with young children.
Bohinjska Bela is a pretty little town and we had a couple of rainy days, otherwise we would have loved to take long walks there. Internet was not working when we were there, so the owner compensated by giving a free high chair for the baby and a welcome basket with food. Ralph and his wife are really nice and sweet

Quiet village with terrific views and close to Lake Bled. The Triglav National Park, Lake Bohinj and ski centres are all nearby. Many kilometres of woodland and mountain trails and biking routes straight from the house. The Sava River is also famous for its fly fishing.
