BALCONY APARTMENT

Bled Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Ideally located quality self-catering holiday apartments near to Lake Bled.

In a renovated traditional family house, our holiday apartments are surrounded by picturesque views and superb walking country in an area rich with summer and winter activities for the whole family.

We offer a perfect base for intrepid explorers and a peaceful haven for relaxation. We chose the house for its ideal location in a tranquil village surrounded by beautiful scenery, yet just 1.8 km from the busy tourist resort of Bled. The house has a lawned garden, with pleasant spaces for eating out, relaxing in the sun, or chilling out with a glass of wine after a day’s activities.

There are 2 apartments: one with 2 bedrooms, boasting balconies with exceptional views and the other with 1 bedroom, having its own private access directly onto the garden and terrace. Both are equipped with everything you need for a comfortable holiday, including multi-channel TV, DVD player, books, travel guides, maps, free WiFi internet connection and fully equipped kitchens.

Getting around is easy from our apartments. If you enjoy walking or cycling, lots of astounding routes start right from our door. For the more adventurous the Julian Alps provides hiking and biking opportunities at all levels of difficulty. To go further afield public transport from Bled is excellent. Alternatively, car hire is available in the town or at the airport. There are coach tours to many tourist attractions. If you have a car, there is easy access to the main AutoRoute and all the many attractions of Slovenia. You are also only about 30 minutes away from Italy and Austria.

Try swimming in Lake Bled in summer, or biking, canoeing, rafting, pony-trekking, fishing, golf, mountaineering and much, much more. This beautiful country also offers many sightseeing opportunities including the Julian Alps and the famous Triglav National Park as well as many places of historical and cultural interest.

Centrally placed for the six major ski resorts accessed with the Bohinj lift pass, our holiday apartments are ideally placed for those who enjoy variety in their skiing holiday. After heavy snowfall, a cross-country skiing trail is marked out linking our and other villages to Bled.

If golf is your thing, the 18 hole Kings Golf Course at Bled is believed to be one of the most beautiful in the world, surrounded by spectacular mountain scenery.

For young children there is plenty to do, with lots of playgrounds and plenty of opportunities for mixing sunshine with water, either in rivers and lakes or swimming pools.

Also, for those not tied to school holidays, spring and autumn are beautiful times in Slovenia, ideal for rambling the many way-marked routes.

Easy to reach from the UK: Easyjet has a daily flight from Stansted UK to Ljubljana, WizzAir flies from Luton to Ljubljana, Adria Airways operates flights from London Gatwick to Ljubljana, Ryanair runs flights from Stansted to Klagenfurt in Austria - 45 minutes drive to Bled. Or you can get a flight to Venice then drive across Northern Italy via Trieste into Slovenia, taking about 2.5 hours to Bled. For European travellers there are excellent auto-routes all the way to Slovenia.

A wonderful country and a wonderful place to stay

The flat has been renovated recently and very tastefully furnished in contemporary style. Very comfortable double bed in each room, nice bathroom with excellent shower. Big TV with satellite, and very well equipped kitchen area, plus balcony with wonderful views of the mountains. An extraordinarily comfortable and peaceful place to relax in the evening. The location is great if you have a car: Lake Bled, shops, restaurants, motorway to Ljubljana and Triglav National Park easily reached. If you've never been to Slovenija before, it combines Alpine mountains in the north, Adriatic Coast in the south, and some beautiful old cities. People generally very friendly and English very widely spoken. Clean, safe, good roads, supermarkets have everything you would expect in Western Europe. All in all, a wonderful country and a wonderful place to stay. John and Elaine are very hospitable and do their best to make sure you enjoy your stay. We loved the place and will definitely be back

Wonderful apartment in a unique setting.

Just 2 km from Bled, this gem of an apartment, set in the tranquil village of Ribno, has stunning views of surrounding mountains and forests.The property was spotless, comfortable and well equipped for self catering. Two generous sized bedrooms, each with a balcony, what better way to wake up, than to the sound of church bells! There were useful suggestions/maps for local walks from the apartment in addition to the tourist brochures.Within walking distance we would recommend Petelini's restaurant plus a well stocked local shop. From Bled there is a good bus service. I would recommend trips to Ljubljana and Bohinj. For flexibility we'll hire a car next time. John and Elaine were most welcoming and went out of their way to ensure that we made the most of our holiday. The greatest compliment is to return, and we will.

We (a couple with two children under 10) had a superb stay at John and Elaine's immaculately clean apartment, The location is perfect, in a pretty little village with amazing alpine views. Lake Bled is just down the road and all the other major Slovenian sights a short car-ride away. We fell in love with Slovenia and will definitely return. John and Elaine are the perfect hosts. It was great to know that they were downstairs if any problems arose.

Great place to relax!

If you are looking for a place that is close to Bled but is not busy with tourists, then this is a great place to stay. Located in the village of Ribno, this is the perfect place to have as your base while discovering the areas of Bled, Bohinj and the Julian Alps. The apartment is a 30 minute walk ( 5 minutes by car) into Bled and is a nice and quiet place to unwind and relax after a day of sight seeing. John and Elaine are very hospitable hosts, and have provided most of the conveniences one would expect to find in a rental property. The only thing missing was air conditioning – that would have made this place a 5 out of 5 for us.

Clean, neat and simple, the balcony apartment will appeal to ever taste. You will not be disappointed.
Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. We have tried to provide everything our guests are likely to need, though generally, our apartments haven’t needed air-conditioning. The thick walls have usually kept us cool and with careful use of window blinds to keep out direct sunlight and with fans to move the air around, the summer temperatures have been OK. However, we have now decided to make air-conditioning available for next summer. After all, if it is not too hot, we don’t need to switch it on!

A nice apartment outside of Bled

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 27, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
My husband and I along with another couple stayed in this 2-bedroom apartment for 3 nights in early June 2013. The apartment was clean and bright and was exactly as it was described on the website. The homeowners are very friendly and live on another floor of the house so if there were a problem, they would be easy to get a hold of. The only real downside of the stay was that full payment, with a 100 Euro deposit, was required prior to arrival. The homeowners requested this through bank transfer. Since my credit union wanted to charge a fortune for an international bank transfer, I used Western Union, which used a bad-for-me exchange rate. I believe the homeowners will actually accept Paypal, but I didn't know this at the time and I wish I had because it would have saved me some money. The homeowners were nice enough though to just pay me the deposit back in cash upon our exit since the Western Union process was complicated. Overall, I would recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to visit Bled but wants to get away from all the tourists.
Owner's Response: We offer payments by Credit Card ( via PayPal), or by transfer into either a UK, French or Slovenian bank. These options are on our adverts and our website and travellers can select which one suits them the best when completing our booking form. None of them are without charges, though the UK bank option can be so for UK guests. Within the euro zone, bank transfers are relatively cheap. An option to discuss alternatives with us is available on our booking form.

This area is renowned for its beautiful and spectacular scenery and the wide range of outdoor activities available. Lake Bled is surrounded by mountains, has an island you can visit by pletna to explore its seventeenth century church. The medieval castle sits on a rock high above the lake.

Bled has a large choice of bars, restaurants, coffee bars (serving delicious cakes), and many boutiques and gift shops in addition to supermarkets and other food shops. Situated near to the motorway system, Bled is within easy reach of all areas of Slovenia and in particular the capital city Ljubljana. Land based activities and water sports for the whole family in summer and winter are in abundance. Sightseeing trips are available to many tourist attractions. English is widely spoken.

Our property is based in a beautiful village 5 minutes drive from Bled. It has traditional Slovenian houses, 3 restaurants and a grocery shop. On all sides the village is surrounded by spectacular mountain scenery.

Golf: The biggest golf course in Slovenia, 4 km from Bled, has been very popular with visitors since the early twentieth century.

Many consider it to be one of the most beautiful courses in Europe. Suitable for beginners yet offering challenge to experienced and professional golfers. There are 2 courses; the 18 hole King's Course and the 9 hole Lake Course.

There is also a driving range and a pitch and put green. The course is in an ideal setting used for many tournaments and other events.

If you are planning a golfing holiday there are 7 different golf courses within one hours drive from Bled

Ski: The ski resort of Bled, part of the the Bohinj ski area (82 individual pistes), offers some of the most picturesque skiing in the world. The Straza ski area reached by chairlift from Bled's centre is best suited to beginners and early intermediates. A ski lift pass gives access to skiing and snowboarding in the other Bohinj ski resorts. A free ski bus takes you to the Vogel and Kobla ski areas on the slopes of Mount Triglav, where you can ski up to 1800m. Beginners can master techniques on Kobla before testing the wide open runs on Vogel's superb plateau. There are a variety of runs on Kobla and Vogel for intermediates. Vogel has an incredible 8.5 km run going over the back of the mountain and descending to the magnificant lakeside area below.

Apres ski, nightlife in Bled is concentrated around the shopping centre and in the old part of the town where there are an excellent selection of pubs and restaurants. Bled has an ice-skating rink and there is skating on the lake if it freezes.
