About the property

hiša 24 Rentals

In a renovated traditional Slovenian house, our holiday apartments are surrounded by picturesque views and superb walking country in an area rich with summer and winter activities for the whole family.

We offer a perfect base for intrepid explorers and a peaceful haven for relaxation. We chose the house for its ideal location in a tranquil village surrounded by beautiful scenery, yet just 1.8 km from the busy tourist resort of Bled. In the village there are two excellent "local" restaurants, a restaurant in a big hotel and a small shop and bakery that sells basic provisions.

The house has a lawned garden, with pleasant spaces for eating out, relaxing in the sun, or chilling out with a glass of wine after a day’s activities.

There are 3 apartments: one with 2 bedrooms, boasting balconies with exceptional views and the others with 1 bedroom, one having its own private access directly onto the garden and terrace. Each apartment is equipped with everything you need for a comfortable holiday, including multi-channel TV, DVD player, books, travel guides, maps, free WiFi internet connection and fully equipped kitchens.

Getting around is easy from our apartments. If you enjoy walking or cycling, lots of astounding routes start right from our door. For the more adventurous the Julian Alps provides hiking and biking opportunities at all levels of difficulty. To go further afield public transport from Bled is excellent. Alternatively, car hire is available in the town or at the airport. There are coach tours to many tourist attractions. If you have a car, there is easy access to the main AutoRoute and all the many attractions of Slovenia. You are also only about 30 minutes away from Italy and Austria.

Try swimming in Lake Bled in summer, or biking, canoeing, rafting, pony-trekking, fishing, golf, mountaineering and much, much more. This beautiful country also offers many sightseeing opportunities including the Julian Alps and the famous Triglav National Park as well as many places of historical and cultural interest.

Centrally placed for the six major ski resorts accessed with the Bohinj lift pass, our holiday apartments are ideally placed for those who enjoy variety in their skiing holiday. After heavy snowfall, a cross-country skiing trail is marked out linking our and other villages to Bled.

If golf is your thing, the 18 hole Kings Golf Course at Bled is believed to be one of the most beautiful in the world, surrounded by spectacular mountain scenery.

For young children there is plenty to do, with lots of playgrounds and plenty of opportunities for mixing sunshine with water, either in rivers and lakes or swimming pools.

Also, for those not tied to school holidays, spring and autumn are beautiful times in Slovenia, ideal for rambling the many way-marked routes.

Easy to reach from the UK: Easyjet has a daily flight from Stansted UK to Ljubljana, WizzAir flies from Luton to Ljubljana, Adria Airways operates flights from London Gatwick and Manchester to Ljubljana. Or you can get a flight to Venice then drive across Northern Italy via Trieste into Slovenia, taking about 2.5 hours to Bled. For European travellers there are excellent auto-routes all the way to Slovenia.

About John and Elaine Pearson

We are a retired English couple who discovered Lake Bled in 2006 when returning from a caravan holiday in Montenegro and Croatia. We liked the country and its people so much that we came back and bought a house. We were still working in the UK at this time, so we renovated the house, divided it into 3 separate apartments and entered the holiday rental business. In 2010 when we retired, we continued the rental business as a source of income. During our years of renting we have been privileged to be hosts to lots of wonderful people, from all over the world. We hope you will visit our apartments soon!

John and Elaine Pearson purchased this apartment in 2007

Why John and Elaine Pearson chose Bled

We looked all over Slovenia for a property then chose this house because of its fantastic views and its location close to Bled but within a village community rather than the anonymity of a tourist resort.

What makes this apartment unique

Fantastic views, easy access to routes around Slovenia, close to Bled and its Lake, superb walks on the doorstep ..........

Mixed feelings!

  • 3 of 5

Caretaker Wendy was very responsive. Place is small but adequate for our needs. Fireplace a special treat. Apple tree a bonus. Adequate number of English language TV stations. Weber grill a nice addition. Yard needs work - lawn mowed, bushes trimmed, etc. Heat in unit was on one day and off the next. Not good when evening temps drop down to 9 degrees. Somewhat pricey rates for off-season.

Owner's Response: A very disappointing rating in light of all the many excellent reviews of this apartment over the past 9 years and also when considering the positive comments you make. However we respect your views. We have very efficient central heating and a wood stove that is more than capable, alone, of heating the apartment. We provide free logs, and a supplementary electric oil-filled radiator “just in case”. During this rental there was a problem on just one evening. The central heating had been off all summer and there were minor teething problems with the programmer that was fixed by next day. Unfortunately our gardener, who comes every week, had been unable to cut the grass and tidy the garden because of a period of rainfall prior to and during this rental. We are proud of our well equipped and nicely furnished Terrace Apartment that other guests have considered spacious for 2 persons and we are disappointed that you did not enjoy your stay as much as we would have wished.

Lovely, well equipped apartment.

  • 4 of 5

The property was very well located: within easy reach of Bled in a lovely village with useful local amenities. Lots of walks could be started right from apartment.

When we stayed the weather was very hot, but the apartment remained cool and comfortable.

Wendy was a great help, especially when we had a disturbed night due to a plumbing issue.

The apartment was well equipped- we especially liked the barbecue.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your understanding about the plumbing fault. Such problems are extremely rare, and when they do occur we react swiftly. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope that you will visit us again in the future.

Great apartment in a great country!

  • 5 of 5

This accommodation was home from home. The apartment was spotlessly clean with all the facilities you could need provided and a lovely garden to sit in taking in the views. It also kept lovely and cool on hot days. Within the village itself we twice visited a great restaurant only minutes walk away and the nearby hotel has a wonderful terrace in the treetops on which to enjoy a glass of wine. There are lots of great walks locally and a supermarket just down the road. We'd still be there if time allowed!

Lovely September stay in Ribno, Slovenia

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the terrace apartment which was very cosy as although the days were warm the evenings were quite chilly. The apartment is in a lovely little village a 10 minute drive or a 20 minute walk from Lake Bled. It is well equipped and Wendy who manages the apartments on behalf of the owner was very helpful. Ribno has two restaurants both serving good, vfm food.

Car: recommended

This area is renowned for its beautiful and spectacular scenery and the wide range of outdoor activities available. Lake Bled is surrounded by mountains, has an island you can visit by pletna to explore its seventeenth century church. The medieval castle sits on a rock high above the lake.

Bled has a large choice of bars, restaurants, coffee bars (serving delicious cakes), and many boutiques and gift shops in addition to supermarkets and other food shops. Situated near to the motorway system, Bled is within easy reach of all areas of Slovenia and in particular the capital city Ljubljana. Land based activities and water sports for the whole family in summer and winter are in abundance. Sightseeing trips are available to many tourist attractions. English is widely spoken.

Our property is based in a beautiful village 5 minutes drive from Bled. It has traditional Slovenian houses, 3 restaurants and a grocery shop. On all sides the village is surrounded by spectacular mountain scenery.

Golf: The biggest golf course in Slovenia, 4 km from Bled, has been very popular with visitors since the early twentieth century.

Many consider it to be one of the most beautiful courses in Europe. Suitable for beginners yet offering challenge to experienced and professional golfers. There are 2 courses; the 18 hole King's Course and the 9 hole Lake Course.

There is also a driving range and a pitch and put green. The course is in an ideal setting used for many tournaments and other events.

If you are planning a golfing holiday there are 7 different golf courses within one hours drive from Bled

Ski: The ski resort of Bled, part of the the Bohinj ski area (82 individual pistes), offers some of the most picturesque skiing in the world. The Straza ski area reached by chairlift from Bled's centre is best suited to beginners and early intermediates. A ski lift pass gives access to skiing and snowboarding in the other Bohinj ski resorts. A free ski bus takes you to the Vogel and Kobla ski areas on the slopes of Mount Triglav, where you can ski up to 1800m. Beginners can master techniques on Kobla before testing the wide open runs on Vogel's superb plateau. There are a variety of runs on Kobla and Vogel for intermediates. Vogel has an incredible 8.5 km run going over the back of the mountain and descending to the magnificant lakeside area below.

Apres ski, nightlife in Bled is concentrated around the shopping centre and in the old part of the town where there are an excellent selection of pubs and restaurants. Bled has an ice-skating rink and there is skating on the lake if it freezes.
