Apartment 3 is a cracking duplex cottage apartment (90m²) with a double-bedroom, twin-bedroom, fully equipped kitchen and two bathrooms. From the living room you can step onto the south facing balcony to enjoy those incredible views.
The perfect holiday spot in Slovenia! Minutes from Lake Bled, three unique cottage apartments with a private outdoor swimming pool in a magnificently renovated traditional Farmhouse setting, offer some of the best vacation rental accommodation in Slovenia. Make it your base to explore Triglav National Park, Lake Bled and Lake Bohinj, or just laze around on the balcony or in the pool.
The house sits in the quiet hillside village of Bohinjska Bela, which has stunning views of the Bohinjka Valley, its own shop and restaurant. Being just 30 minutes drive from Ljubljana's airport, it's not just beautiful but also very accessible, and the fact that Lake Bled is just a few minutes away makes the property some of the best situated vacation rental accommodation in Slovenia.
Outside: This area is a walkers paradise; there are days & days of walking trails through the mountains and valleys right from the house, plus the Triglav National Park is just minutes away. If that is too strenuous, the large rear garden has our solar heated swimming pool and a large undercover barbecue. Or you can always just hang around on the balcony where the views are nearly as fantastic and, well, pleasantly close to the fridge and the sofa.
Inside: What you'll find in each apartment:
* Big beds and big, comfortable sofas.
* Free WiFi Internet access, flatscreen TV (if you can't break the habit), media centre with movies and a stack of books.
* Fully equipped kitchen and plenty of table space for everyone to eat together.
* All kitchen basics for cooking and cleaning.
* Slippers and thick warm robes in the Winter.
* Shower gels and creams - and hair dryer.
* Use of the outdoor swimming pool.
* A bunch of useful stuff like local maps and guide books, phone chargers and adapters.
Nearby: Everyone wants different quantities of relaxation and adventure on a family holiday in Slovenia. Some like just a tablespoon of one while others want jugs of the stuff. Happily, this location is both tranquil and very accessible (just 30 minutes from the airport) allowing you to mix your holiday cocktail exactly how you like it.
You can lounge away the morning at Lake Bled in a lakeside café, tour the island church, then pop into a shop or two before dinner. If you're feeling a little more Indiana Jones you can head down to Lake Bohinj and paraglide out across the beautiful Triglav National Park. There are more activities at Bohinj than you can shake a paddle at, from horse-riding to rock-climbing and everything in between. Lovely.
Originally from the UK, our life now is firmly based in Slovenia. We live at one end of The Farmhouse and are discretely on hand to provide help and tips for the local area, ably assisted by our dog Rory.
Matija purchased this apartment in 2004
Slovenia and, in particular the Gorenjska region, is quite literally a unique part of Europe. Peaceful, unspoilt and very relaxed. We are right on the southern edge of the Alps with amazing valleys, lakes and rivers and yet also less than 2 hours from the Adriatic sea.
This country and area is safe, clean and easy to get to and yet, unspoilt, still largely unknown (so quiet) and with astonishingly beautiful countryside and amazing vistas.
My family (two daughters aged 11 and 13, my wife and I) really enjoyed our stay. The apartment was spacious, modern, clean and had amazing views. We all loved the pool and barbecue area under the dramatic cliff.
It was nice to be able to walk to the local shop for supplies and wonderful to swim in the beautiful lakes. Highlights were the Bled summer toboggan run, rowing and an evening walk up to Bled castle.
We would thoroughly recommend a stay.
Thank you Ralph and Jo
Exceptionally nice place. Large, well equipped, beautiful views, great pool in a nice setting. Also very friendly, helpful hosts.
Farmhouse Katricnek ist eine sehr gemütliche Unterkunft, geschmackvoll eingerichtet und gepflegt. Es ist alles vorhanden, sowohl in der Küche wie auch im Bad. Im Pool kann man sich nach den ausgiebigen Wanderungen erfrischen. Der Garten ist sehr gepflegt, ebenso die Grillstelle am Pool. Auf dem Balkon oder vor dem Haus kann man abends noch ein Gläschen trinken. Jo und Ralph sind sehr hilfsbereit. Rundum haben wir einen wundervollen Urlaub genossen.
Another wonderful stay at Farmhouse Katricnek. First visit in the winter to take advantage of the skiing nearby and it didn't disappoint. Once again the accommodation was comfortable with the usual high specifications and as usual Ralph and Jo were welcoming and helpful. The skiing was great with great variety in the runs/pistes and no queuing for lifts/gondolas. The ski passes and hires were extremely inexpensive. I never have a bad word to say about this place.
The appartements are big enough for 4 grown-up people with 2 bathrooms, it is very clean and everything you need is there. You have amazing views from the 2 balkony's and from the fire place in the garden where we sat every evening, there also is a heated swimmingpool and several sitting places in the garden where you can relaxe.
Ralph and Jo provided very good customer services and told us places that we had to see when we where there in Slovenia, and believe me they did not lie at all we would not mis the views whe had seen because of there recommendation. They told us routes to walk, hike or fish and they told us also about the license you need if you want to fish. ;)
They put in the appartment books and folders of lots of different places that a worth seeing, there was one book you can take along when you went for a walk with about 50 different routes in it.
We went up to lake Bled and followed one of the routes and the different views that we have seen over lake Bled are truly amazing and i wouldn't want to mis it.
A other day we went up to the National Park and hiked al the way up to Severna Triglavska Stena, it was a hard hike but the view was all worth it, it was really beautiful.
We would love to come again some day because we had a lovely stay with good services from the owners and just everything was perfect. The dogs had also a lovely stay.
Ralph and Jo thanks for everything we are gonna mis you.
Lots of love,
Joris en Angela
and ofcourse Xana and Kyra
This area is a walkers paradise; there are tens of kilometers of walking trails through the mountains right from the house, plus the Triglav National Park is just minutes away. If that is too strenuous, the large rear garden has our solar heated swimming pool, the hot tub and a large undercover barbecue. Or you can always just hang around on the balcony where the views are nearly as fantastic and pleasantly close to the fridge and the sofa.
