Nice apartment in perfect location
The apartment is just 5 mins from the airport, with another 7-8 minutes to collect and return keys to staff at a nearby Hotel.
Trata is a small peaceful village with lovely views of mountains, and it was a very convenient location for us. We visited the capital Lljibiana, Lake Bled, and Škofja Loka, which has one of the best preserved medieval urban centres in Slovenia.
There is a nearby "Lager Bar" with friendly atmosphere, satellite tv, local lagers, coffee; locals ate takeaway pizzas as they watched the football.
By the time we arrived the local supermarket was closed, so we drove 20 mins to nearest open one which had an excellent range of fresh food served by helpful, friendly staff. Not really a problem for us, since we had a car, but a small welcome pack would have been useful eg. basics of milk, bread, for late and/or bank holiday arrivals.
Good sized modern apartment for 2 adults and 2 teenagers. However, double bed rather small so futon in lounge was utilised - which was comfortable anyway.
Excellent value for money, but a few minor upgrades - like a TV that tunes into programs (you can watch dvds but there is no antenna connection) and wi-fi access wouldn't go amiss. So we enjoyed watching the DVDs and playing cards, switching off from events of the world!
Kitchen and dining area well equipped, which we used for the majority of our stay, some essentials provided proved useful ie salt, sugar, oil, dried herbs, ground coffee, washing up liquid. No dishwasher though :-(, and there is also space for a washing machine in the bathroom .
An up to date Information Pack would have been handy, but we just asked around for skiing and general tourist information.
The nearby Vodnik hotel - a couple of mins drive - has an excellent restaurant, courteous and prompt service , fresh local food and great value for money too !
We had a 10 minute drive to the nearest ski lift. There were more than enough blue & red pistes open to keep us happy, the more advanced skier would perhaps need to drive a little further to a wider range - it was late in the season for us though so some lifts may have been closed.
Although plenty of snow the weather was poor with blizzards and bad visibility most days, which meant quiet slopes, but an interesting ski experience. When the sun did shine the scenery was wonderful !
Ski instruction was excellent value at 30 euros for 1 hour 1-1.
Overall we would return but hope for better weather next time !
Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a detailed review. We will take on board discussing the supply of a welcome pack for guests arriving late in the day etc and whether they would like one.
The double bed is a standard sized double bed but if people prefer they can use the very large sofa bed that is in the lounge but a standard double should be ok for most people.
As we manage the property for the owners we have discussed and continue to discuss the supply of a washing machine in the bathroom and free wifi which would be very useful. We hope to have a washing machine and free wifi installed soon.
We will refresh the information pack and it was great to hear that you found Krvavec ski resort so convenient and great value for money. It really is perfect for a long weekend skiing being 5 minutes drive from the airport and the ski resort. We can even arrange for the Pension / Hotel who hold the keys to collect and drop off ski guests at the apartment in their ski minibus as they pass the front door every day.
We hope you will return in the future and hopefully next time the weather will be a little better.
