Katricnek 3, Bohinjska Bela, Slovenia
This is a 19th Century Farmhouse, sitting in a typical Slovenian Village and surrounded by farmland and mountain vistas. Bohinjska Bela is just minutes from Bled with its relaxed café culture & wonderful lake. A 20 minute drive in the opposite direction takes you to Bohinj and into the vast Triglav National Park and the Julian Alps, a stunning area with a very wide range of sporting facilities & opportunities - you name it, its available.
The village of Bohinjska Bela is a peaceful place to return to after an active day with its own local shop, bars and restaurants.
The house sits in its own grounds with fruit trees, outdoor pool and an amazing cliff to the rear. Sit on your balcony, enjoy the magnificent mountain views while enjoying some of the excellent local beer or wines.
These are some of the reasons why we have chosen to live here ourselves (so are on site to help with recommendations and advice) - Slovenia really is one of Europes most beautiful areas.
The owners of Farmhouse Katricnek, Ralph & Jo, live on site, so are on-hand to help with advice and recommendations.
This is a newly created apartment inside this traditional house and is over two floors. It has one double master bedroom and a further twin room, ideal for kids but comfortably large enough for adults. There is a double sofa bed in the lounge which can hold two more guests if required. A large living room with kitchen area opens out onto the south facing balcony with spectacular views.
We aim to make your stay as comfortable and easy as possible. Furniture beds and bedding are new and very high quality. We include all kitchen & bathroom essentials and offer an optional Food Starter Pack of locally sourced essentials so that you dont need to run out to the supermarket as soon as you arrive. We provide towels, fluffy dressing gowns and slippers and more.
