Wir waren sehr angetan von diesem schönen Haus. Die Ausstattung hat keine Wünsche offen gelassen. Die Kommunikation in Englisch mit den Hausbesitzern und später bei der Übergabe, bzw. Verabschiedung war sehr freundlich und offen.
Wir sind zu siebt angekommen (69, 66, 48, 44, 38, 7, 4) und waren mit dem Platzangebot und dem Komfort rundum zufrieden. Herausheben möchte ich natürlich das Spielzimmer, in dem sich unsere beiden Kinder sichtlich wohl gefühlt haben. Die Lage ist ruhig und zentral zwischen dem Bleder und dem Bohinjer See, also ideal für Ausflüge. Die Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in der nähe reichen völlig aus.
Bei der Ausstattung und der Sauberkeit des Hauses kann man die nebenstehende "Ruine" sicher verschmerzen.
Wir werden sicherlich wiederkommen, eine Woche war uns fast zu kurz.
Viele Grüße von den Familien Hofmann und Marschner aus Deutschland
We had a wonderful time staying at the House of Hearts in this beautiful area of Slovenia! The house was perfect for our family of 6; plenty of room for cooking (the kitchen is great!), eating, lounging around, as well as spacious bedrooms with lots of storage. The kitchen is very well-stocked - great pots and pans, sharp knives, coffee maker, coffee press, and any handy utensil you could think of! The floors are heated and the fireplace made everything feel nice and cozy. It was so nice to have an entire house all to ourselves. The house is immaculately clean, and Jackie was very helpful to us, from getting us settled in, to helping us arrange ski rentals. We were only a short 15-20 minute drive from Vogel Ski Resort, and just down the road from several picturesque villages and great food. This is a great place to stay in the summer or winter!
We stayed here for 10 days in September and loved it! The house is great for families - clean, spacious and warm, with modern appliances and all the comforts of home.
The area has so much to offer. We spent our days hiking, exploring and experiencing Slovenian culture. Easy to visit Croatia and Italy from here also.
Will definitely be back and would certainly recommend this property to all.
This is a wonderful house and location! I stayed here in October and it was great. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms are modern. The bed was very comfortable and everything is new. The kitchen was well equipped for all our cooking needs. The view from the front of the house is beautiful and looks out on to a old church and mountains.
The location is perfect for both Lake Bohinji and Lake Bled. We were able to do some hiking and horseback riding. Also, it easy to visit Castle Bled which has incredible views of the area from its balconies. The small village of Bohinjska Bistra is a few minutes away by car. The village is very picturesque with all the amenities we needed for our vacation - restaurants, grocery store, bank, etc. The cable car to the ski area - Vogel was open. We rode to the top for some incredible views of surrounding mountains and a relaxing snack at the resort restaurant. Keep an eye out for mountain goats - we were able to spot some.
A quick word about food, we did find that pizza is very popular in this area. So, if you like pizza you’re in luck. A couple restaurants - Pizza Ema in Srednja Vas and one in Ribcev Laz - can't remember the name- within 10 minutes of the house have awesome pizza! Also it’s very reasonably priced.
