Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Municipality of Bohinj - Crocus Cottage

Beautiful mountain cottage located at 1000 metres in the Julian Alps.

Crocus Cottage (so named after the wild crocuses so prevalent in this area) is a traditional Slovene mountain cottage, sympathetically renovated. It has three bedrooms (two doubles and a twin) and can sleep 6-8 people (there is a double sofa bed in the twin bedroom). It is extremely cosy, with efficient under floor heating and a wood burning stove in the sitting room. The bedrooms and shower room are upstairs. Downstairs is an open plan kitchen and sitting room, utility room (with a washing machine and a tumble dryer) and a bathroom with a large freestanding bath

Outside is a large decking area perfect for barbecues, or sitting and watching the spectacular sunrise, or just taking in the sounds of rural Slovenian village life.

The property is managed by Jackie Moolman who lives close by, and her contact details are available in the property guest book should you stay here, so please feel free to contact her if you have any queries during your stay. And if you do rent it, we hope you love it as much as we do!

Why The Owner chose Upper Carniola - Gorenjska

We fell in love with the house. It was in a terrible state of repair and was clearly going to require a lot of work. Many people asked why we didn't just knock it down and start again. But we had bought it because we loved the exterior and we loved the village, and we wanted to keep it at least externally authentic. Originally we had planned to live in Slovenia once it was done, but our lives followed a different path, ultimately, so we didn't.

What makes this cottage unique

Apart from the lovely village and spectacular views, this cottage comes with a rich history. During the Second World War, the owner used to hide resistance fighters in a man hole underneath what is now the bathroom. During the renovation, the builders found an old WW2 German bayonet, inscribed as given to a soldier for his faithful service.

Quite apart from this, it is just on a stunning plateau and so well placed for so many different activities, we realise how incredibly lucky we were to find it. Each time we go out, we discover more about this lovely country, and the countryside and history and people.

No. 13 Koprivnik is situated in a small farming village at an altitude of 1000 metres in the Triglav National park. It is perfectly placed for skiing (downhill and cross country), hiking, fly fishing, and white water rafting, amongst many other things. There are many beautiful places to visit - castles, caves, lakes, forests and gorges - there is even a car train situated in Bohinjska Bistrica, 15 minutes drive away, which can take you through the mountain to the Soča Valley. There is something for everyone, summer or winter. There are some amazing places - in particular the Lakes Bled and Bohinj, both stunningly beautiful and within a half hour's drive: the Postojna Caves, about an hour and a half's drive away, are genuinely awesome. Even if you don't ski, a trip up to the top of the Vogel cable car is recommended. Lake Bled is beautiful, with the island monastery often hazily rising through the mist out of it - you can take a boat trip there and have a wander around. For those who like a thrill, there is also an adventure park in Bled. You can kayak, canoe, skydive, toboggan summer and winter, dive and swim in the lakes, hike, go canyoning or paint-balling, and play tennis - there are endless activities to enjoy. In winter you have alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, ski touring, snow shoeing and ice climbing.

Grocery shopping can be done in Bohinj, 15 minutes drive down the mountain from the house. Bled is 30 minutes drive away, and Ljubljana just over an hour. Ljubljana Airport is just under an hour's drive, but you can also fly into Klagenfurt (roughly 1 hr 35 minutes drive) or Trieste (2 hrs 30 mins drive).

There is a lovely local pub about a minute's walk from the house, where you can find local food (whatever they're cooking that day) and drinks (including absolutely delicious hot chocolate - make sure you ask for it with cream!). In winter there is lots of room for sledging and a proper sledging slope about 15 minutes drive up the mountain at Poklujka. This is also an ideal area for small children to learn to ski. In spring and summer the flowers are out and the cows wander freely around, cowbells lazily announcing their presence. The people in the village are very friendly.

There is a great pizza place (Pizza Ema) and a good local restaurant (Rupa) about 15/20 mins drive away in Srednja Vas. Both are well worth a visit. Plenty of traditional gostilnas (restaurants) can be found in the small villages leading to Lake Bohinj and also in Ukanc on the north side of the Lake.
