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 house in an excellent location

4 of 5
Great house for our family of 6. Fantastic location within a short walk to the lake. Very quiet surroundings. The only negatives were that the beds were extremely low and made it difficult for my 80 and 85 year old parents to get in and out of bed. There was also a lack of crockery and cutlery. Only 6 of everything which meant having to wash up dishes if we needed an extra plate or knife etc. Weirdly, there were only 3 bowls so we had to share at breakfast. Also, the frying pans were shockingly bad. All the non stick coating had been scratched which is a bit of a health hazard. Considering how cheap these things are to replace, there isnt any excuse for not doing so when necessary. A dishwasher would be a great addition to the house. Otherwise, we loved the house and enjoyed the balconies and back patio area. We had a few days of rain at the start of the holiday but that quickly cleared up into the most glorious sunshine. Would definitely recommend this house and location and will most definitely be visiting Slovenia again in the future. Very beautiful and friendly country.
