A Home Away From Home In The Heart Of Nature

Apartma Bela Breza is a modern, comfortable,cosy home from home.

Our apartment accommodates up to six people and comprises of: 2 comfortable bedrooms, one with a King-size bed and the other with either 2 singles or an Austrian-style double bed, a baby cot, high chair and dining set are available; A large lounge/diner with TV, DVD/video player (and some films), radio/CD player, free WiFi, double sofa-bed and dining area; A comprehensively equipped kitchen including hob, full oven, microwave, fridge, toaster, kettle and loads of utensils; A shower room/WC; Own entrance from the garden through the sunny conservatory/breakfast room; A balcony and garden with seating and garden swing and (we think) the best views in the valley.

We are in the quiet village of Šentjanž with shops, an excellent bakery, and bars in easy walking/cycling distance. A selection of supermarkets, eateries and bars are also near.

We have fantastic walking and cycling either starting from our house or going further afield, fishing/angling, kayaking/rafting, snow sports (in season), as well as more gentle activities such as nature watching, foraging, and so much more.

The area is a photographer's/artist's destination as we have the 'WOW' factor in abundance not just from the garden but in places to visit. For example, the Solčavsko (European Destination of Excellence Award winner) and Kamnisko-Savinja Alp Region; The world famous Logarska Dolina (Logar Valley) with the amazing Rinka waterfall; Velika Planina and it's unique settlement on the top are just some of the places you'll remember for ever and want to come back to.

The city of Ljubljana is an hour away by car and is famous for it's friendly, cosy vibe. Like the country itself, it is small and very welcoming.

There is so much to enjoy here and we love to share our wealth of local knowledge with guests. We have a small number of day bags and walking poles, a picnic set and cool-bag, some bicycles and walking advice, daily weather updates for guests to make use of (without charge).

We are approx. 1 hour away from Ljubljana airport and a hire car is highly recommended in order to be independent and truly access and explore what we have to offer.

About Colin Hayes

We are a British couple who love to walk and enjoy what nature has to offer. We have been visiting Slovenia for a number of years and finally bought our house with a view to sharing our knowledge and love of Slovenia. The forests and mountains give us great pleasure and we are lucky to have views from our house that Slovenians are envious of.

Colin Hayes purchased this Apartment in 2012

                                                Perfect - relaxing, beautiful and lots to do!

                                                Paola G.-

                                                The flat and its location were fantastic. It was very comfortable - a lovely large bedroom, a good size living area, and a well equipped kitchen, plus a lovely terrace from which to sit and admire the stunning views. We were made very welcome and all the advice from our hosts was spot on - they really went out of their way to make sure we got the most from our short time there. Couldn't have been better!

                                                Owner's Response:

                                                Paola and Tommy were perfect guests. It was a pleasure to host them and hope they come again.

                                                We are so glad they liked our apartment. Our aim is to give a 'home-from-home' experience for our guests.

                                                We have a wealth of local knowledge we are more than happy to share, including where is good to eat, places of interest or best walking/cycling routes and weather updates etc. We try to be as accurate as possible with our information and are pleased that Paola and Tommy had a good stay.

                                                Diane and Colin

                                                There are never strangers at Bela Breza, only friends we've yet to meet.

                                                Entschleunigung bei wunderbaren Gastgebern, in herrlicher Natur und Appartment mit Aussicht

                                                Katja P.

                                                Das Appartment ist ein idealer Ausgangspunkt, um die Naturschönheiten der Kamniker/Steiner Alpen zu entdecken. Das wunderschöne Logar Tal, die Solcava Panoramastraße oder die Hochalm Velinka Planina sind in nur wenigen Autominuten erreicht. Touristisch gesehen, ist die Gegend noch ein Geheimtipp und man kann hier sehr individuell Urlaub machen.

                                                Das Appartment ist sehr geschmackvoll und komfortabel eingerichtet und von Diane liebevoll home-decorated. Der Ausblick einfach grandios. Es fehlt an nichts.

                                                Die Vermieter Diane und Colin sind sehr herzliche und offene Gastgeber, mit vielen Empfehlungen und Insider-Tipps für Exkursionen. Wir haben ihre Gesellschaft während unseres Aufenthaltes sehr genossen. Ihren Hase Jonathan haben unsere Kinder fest ins Herz geschlossen, auch dass Diane und Colin kleine Überraschungen für sie parat hatten, hat ihnen sehr gefallen.

                                                Rundum hatten wir zwar nur wenige, aber sehr entspannte und erlebnisreiche Tage in Sentjanz und sagen herzlichen Dank an die wunderbaren Vermieter Colin, Diane und JDW.

                                                We are so happy that Katja and family had a great time here and liked our apartment. They were great guests and a pleasure to host. Thanks go to the boys who taught Jonathan Dexter Weatherspoon how to play 'goalie' - we never knew our bunny played football!

                                                We try our best to make our guests feel at home and give them information and insider tips to make their visit to our wonderful area the best. It's great to know it is appreciated.

                                                You are welcome back anytime.

                                                Lugar encantador. Muy buena predisposiciónde los propietarios para solucionar cualquier imprevisto

                                                M.Carme C.

                                                Un pais muy bonito y muy tranquilo. Espero que no haya cambiado cuando volvamos

                                                It was a pleasure to have you and family stay with us. We try our best to meet our guests needs, so, thank you for your appreciation.

                                                We hope you will come back to Slovenia and, hopefully, choose to stay with us again. Our best wishes to you.

                                                Va ser un plaer que vostès i familiars es quedessin amb nosaltres. Intentem el nostre millor esforç per satisfer les necessitats dels nostres hostes, per, això us agraïm el vostre agraïment.

                                                Esperem que torni a Eslovènia i, amb sort, decideixi quedar-nos amb nosaltres. Els nostres millors desitjos.

                                                Schönes Berg-Panorama und für jeden was dabei, von Tälern und Flüssen bis zu hohen Bergen

                                                Sandra Z.

                                                Unterkunft: Die Unterkunft war sehr schön eingerichtet und man fühlte sich sofort wohl.

                                                Vermieter: Sehr freundlichen Menschen, die einem umfangreiche Informationen zu der Gegend, Sehenswürdigkeiten und Kultur geben kann.

                                                Landschaft: Das berühmte Tal Logarskar Dolina ist nicht weit entfernt. Des Weiteren laden Berge zum Wandern ein. Beim Radfahren muss man etwas auf die umliegenden Nebenstraßen ausweichen, da besonders am Wochenende die Fernverkehrsstraße reich frequentiert ist. Radwege als solche gibt es keine.

                                                Fazit: Es war ein sehr erholsamer Urlaub mit vielen Eindrücken.Jeden Tag konnte etwas anderes unternommen werden. Sehr empfehlenswert die Unterkunft und Gegend.
