The house is in a fantastic location and there is a nice little restaurant 3 min walk away. There is a fenced in yard, which was perfect for our two year old. Our trip to Lake Bled was one of my family's most memorable vacations and we would stay in Susan's house again in a heartbeat!!

Just as described in the listing, warm, tastefully decorated and well equipped. We visited for skiing at Vogel, and the location just a short walk from the cable car station was perfect. But the proximity to the lake and the nearby Savica waterfalls would make it a great place to stay at other times of year. The staff at Slovenia estates were helpful and efficient in arranging the rental. We'd like to say thank you for a lovely stay.
