Wonderful property in relaxing setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in the cottage. Jackie, the host, was really nice and helpful. She gave us great advice on where to go for food and all the places she recommended were great. The cottage itself is down a small trail with one other house nearby it. It is really quiet, has no wifi and mobile signal isn't very good which is exactly what we wanted as meant we could totally switch off from work. The cottage has everything you need; we particularly enjoyed the log burner in the evenings! Thank you!

Tranquil, cosy with stunning surroundings

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is tucked up in the woods in the stunning peace and quiet of the Slovene countryside but only 45 min or so from the main airport. It has everything you could need from a rental property and was homely and inviting. The children ADORED sleeping in the nook and romping around in the garden and fields. It is just like living in The Sound of Music with the cowbells and fantastic scenery! There is tonnes to do in the vicinity and you are only a 10 minute drive to a great supermarket and lovely restaurants. We kayaked, rowed, swum, cycled, walked, went paragliding (well not all of us!) and most of all relaxed. We would highly recommend Woodland Cottage (and Villa Maria which we stayed in last year from the same website - in the same village but a bigger property). We can't wait to come back and try it for skiing!

(Thanks also to Jackie who manages the property for looking after us so well.)

Owner's Response: Hi Clare and Keri I am so pleased you had a wonderful holiday in Woodlands. I also love the sound of the cowbells. We look forward to welcoming you in the winter, when it is just as beautiful! Regards Jackie

Luxe en rust in een zeer gastvrij land

  • 5 of 5

Zeer compleet uitgerust vakantiehuis in de Sloveense Alpen. Prima geschikt voor ouders met kinderen die even weg willen uit de drukte van de grote toeristische trekpleisters. We voelden ons zeer welkom en de beheerster was uitermate behulpzaam. Het huisje ligt op 1.100 meter hoogte, de eerste buren bevinden zich 100 meter verderop en kinderen kunnen er heerlijk in het privé bos struinen, reeën kijken, vuurtje stoken en op "vossenjacht". Dat alles aan de rand van schitterende wandelgebieden en op 20 minuten rijden van Bled aan de oostkant en Bohinj aan de westkant. We hebben genoten.

Sehr zu empfehlen.

  • 5 of 5

Wunderschönes, kleines Häuschen. Sehr ruhige Lage und perfekter Ort für ein gemütliches, Lagerfeuer am Abend.

Das Bad und vor allem die Dusche sind sehr klein, aber mit viel Liebe gestaltet. Das Haus bietet aber ansonsten alles was man braucht oder auch nicht braucht. Der traumhaft schöne See ist nicht weit entfernt und manchmal könnte man meinen,man wäre in Canada.

Dreamy get away, in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The cute cottage, has litterly everything you need! In the morning you can eat your breakfast at the front of the cottage at a picknichbench/table with a stunning view, hear the birds come to life and all the other wildlife.

This is the best start of your day exploring all the beauty of Slovenië!

When you come back, tired of hiking and feeling content with the great nature around you and meeting the lovely Slovenian people.

You cook some lovely food which you bought at a local supemarket, eat it again outside (because you can't get enought of the view) and then come inside the cozy cottage and light up the woodburner and read a good book.

I have to say we stayed here for over 2 weeks and enjoyed every minute! Together with my husband and Son (15 months old) we hiked/ climed hills, go to local restaurants and visited Ljubljana, the lakes of Bled and Bohinj.

The people of Slovenië are really friendly and will aways try to speak English or German to you if you need any help.

Not to forget the cottage was super clean, very cozy and a very good equipt kitchen (pots an pans etc.) and overal just super neet!

And of course Jacky, the home overseer, she was so kind! And gave great tips for exploring Slovenië.

We would not hesitate booking again!!

One of our best holidays

  • 5 of 5

It' like a doll's house, but bigger.

It's like a real house, but smaller.

It's nice, clean, equipped with everything you need, calm. The surroundings are beautiful. We always took our breakfast outside, watching the squirrels. Also deer came by occasionally.

The country is really worth a visit, lots of beautiful things to see and the people are very nice.

Woodlands cottage is situated down a private lane within the The Bohinj / Triglav National Park area. It is surrounded with the beauty,nature and peace of the park!

The Triglav National Park is the only national park in Slovenia. It is named after the highest mountain in Slovenia which is situated in the heart of the park (2864m).

Within the park is various levels of hiking so something to suit everybody.

Lake Bohinj is a truly beautiful lake, with crystal clear water, full of fish and lovely bays, surrounded by the Juian Alps which literally rise up out of the lake making a spectacular yet tranquil setting with lots to do including boating, fishing, bathing, climbing, hiking, biking or simply feeding the ducks!

There are so many places to visit

The Gorenjska region

The Gorenjska region is one of the most popular tourist regions in Slovenia. It is an alpine region characterized by spectacular high peaks, sharp ridges, deep gorges, the gushing sound of waterfalls and lovely peaceful lakes making an ideal setting for sightseeing and outdoor pursuits. The weather is generally hot and sunny in summertime with plenty of snow in winter for winter sports.

For day trips the beautiful capital of Ljubljana is just over an hour's drive with it's lovely old town and endless bistros. The Skocjan Caves (a UNESCO world heritage site) are under two hours drive. The breathtaking Soca Valley is also a very scenic two hour drive (or a 60 minute train ride through the mountain). Austria and Italy are within easy reach with day trips to Venice a possibility.
