Great view and location
The listing description was pretty spot on re this apartment. It had a lovely view over a little stream (river apparently), valley and mountain behind. It is in a little village with traditional houses so is lovely when you first come in and just to walk around.
The apartment is clean and neat and modernly decorated. Just be aware if there is 5 of you and not 4 coming that there is no storage in the 2nd bedroom (where the twin beds are) and so we kept our clothes in the 3rd single bedroom which is quite small. I would recommend that this suits 4 adults comfortably. We had a 5th person, albeit an infant, and the main bedroom was big enough for the cot to be in the main bedroom and leave the 3rd bedroom free.
The service we had was good and the local manager was prompt turning up when we needed information or help - like finding the hairdryer. And the recommendation to bring a few extra DVDs when we were going through the booking process was a good idea. There are some onsite but don't count on them being to your taste and TV selection is like going to a standard hotel, BBC world, CNN and a sports channel in English. Recommend you ask any questions up front - we even got info where to go for Xmas markets etc.
It took us about 7min by car to Lake Bled. Lake Bled is really pretty and great for touristing and eating but not so much shopping (ie high street shopping). In fact, don't go to Slovenia for the shopping. Everyone seems to pop across the border to Austria / Italy to do shopping. We went to Salzburg for the day - took about 2.5-3hrs drive.
Groceries, you are better off going to Lesce rather than Ribno or Bled (again about 5-10min away) as there is a bigger Mercato.
There is so much locally to see and do. We went in winter and ran out of time to see everything we wanted. I definitely think it would be worthwhile going again in summer when you can swim and do more hiking outdoors (was a bit cold and we weren't there to ski).
The food was excellent. A mixture of Italian and German/Austrian. I was worried that the food would be stodgy but it was done simply and was very tasty. There is always quite a selection at restaurants.
Most people speak English and most restaurants have menus in English in all the tourist spots so it is very easy to get around.
Overall I would say this is ideally located if you want to tourist and v pretty & comfortable
Owner's Response: Many thanks for your extensive review which will hopefuly be of use to other guests. One comment would be about the storage in the second bedroom - each of the beds has extensive storage inside them. Apologies you didnt find this - we have now added this info to our guest information pack.
