BEAUTIFUL LABRADOR

  • 5 of 5
What can you say about Slovenia - scenery, people, value - one of the best destinations for us, we'll be back !
Initially the remoteness of the chalet was of concern, but after 1 day we realised how privileged we were to stay here and enjoyed the tranquility beyond words.
Good luck Mark & Trish, we hope to return.
Richard & Lesely.
P.S. Look out for the beautiful labrador - he likes BBQ's.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your comments Richard and Lesely, we feel that being only 10 minutes from Kamnik our guests have the best of both worlds, peace and tranquility at the chalet and all the amenities you'd need not too far away. We're pleased you met our neighbours dog "Jack", he's probably the best natured dog you're ever likely to meet, and as a result, probably the best fed dog in the village !!
All the best Mark & Trish

We had a really good time in the chalet. The weather was fantastic most of the time and even when it wasn't, we had lots of entertainment provided in the chalet.
Slovenia is a clean, beautiful country, many places and things to do and see.
Breath taking views, pretty girls, friendly people and dogs.
Definitely will return in future and would recommend your chalet to anyone!

WONDERFUL PLACE

  • 5 of 5
Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful chalet. Everything is so complete. We loved Slovenia and were amazed at how clean everything is.

We walked a lot – and especially the descent from Velika Planina – from the top of the chair lift down to the base of the cable car, was marked as easy but didn’t seem that easy to us – 3 seniors …. But we managed it and it was worth all the pain afterwards.

What a wonderful place you have created, stayed one week but seemed like six.

WELL EQUIPED COTTAGE

  • 4 of 5
The cottage is very cosy, well equiped and in good condition. The bedrooms are large and comfortable with good beds. The bathrooms are small but luxurious. The only disadvantages are the steep stairs. The terrace is large and we have enjoyed the marvellous views.

AMAZING BREAKFAST ON TERRACE

  • 5 of 5
The property was very clean, homely and well equipment. We will recommend it to our friends absolutely. We were fascinated by view from the terrace every morning during our breakfast. We took a lot of trips in Slovenia. We have been in cave "Škocjanska jama" (UNESCO), in mountains (Velka Planina is near ant it is amazing), in Ljubljana and by the sea too. We spend very nice time in Slovenia.

Krvavec:

The local ski resort of Krvavec is 1450-1971m above sea level, it stretches over 106 hectares and is only 9 miles from the chalet.

Krvavec has been awarded the coveted crystal snowflake award by consistently being voted best ski resort in Slovenia.
