The house is wonderfully located, close to the amenities of the village, but most importantly, to the amazing natural sights the area has to offer. Right behind the property is a trail up over the hill to a lookout, well worth the climb. The views are magnificent. The key attraction of course is the lake, and this is only a brisk 10min walk down the road. The house itself is very comfortable and well appointed. The fire is particularly nice, especially when it was below freezing outside. Given we spent Christmas Day at home, it was really important that the kitchen be up to the task of preparing a significant amount of food, which it definitely was. Even when there was a small issue with a thermostat the owners were able to organise a plumber to come and rectify the problem on Christmas Eve. Great service. All in all, a comfortable, easy, very relaxing and cosy few days. I would highly recommend.

The house is situated ideal. Just 500 meters far from the ropeway to the skiresort Vogel, behind the house the beginning of lovely walking tours towards the waterfalls and the Triglav Park. And in the house all you need for feeling home. It is ideal when you have children, because there are separate bedrooms and everyone can have its privacy, when needed. Kitchen is lovely and inviting for cooking. Yes, we tasted it in winter and we desided it is so nice, we want try again in summer for walking through the mountains.
