Delightful Cottage within the Woods
average rating of 5.0 based on 4 reviews

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

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.

Sehr zu empfehlen!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben mit unseren beiden Söhnen (8 und 10 Jahre alt) ein paar tolle Tage im Cottage verbracht. Es ist sehr ruhig gelegen. Die Landschaft ist toll, man fühlt sich wie Heidi! Das Häuschen ist sehr gut ausgestattet und war schön kühl, obwohl es draußen sehr heiß war. Man muss allerdings gute 20 Minuten Serpentinen hochfahren und unbedingt vorher im Tal einkaufen ;-)))

Von Slowenien waren wir sowieso ganz begeistert, vor allem vom Bohinj-See. Der Kontakt zu Jackie war super und sehr unkompliziert. Auf jeden Fall zu empfehlen!

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there with our baby (10 months) and had a wonderful time. The house is equipped with everything you need. It's very nicely done up, comfortable and absolutely clean.

The house is pleasently quiet located at the end of a blind alley. We enjoyed spending the evenings outside and had barbecue in the beautiful nature which surrounds the cottage.

Thanks to Jackie for the hiking and cycling tips in the vicinity and for the nice conversation.

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.
