“Lovely House But Not Quite What We Expected”
Reviewed 28 December 2012 for a stay in July 2012

The house is genuinely fantastic. It is bright, airy and perfectly traditional. However the photos do make the house seem much bigger than it actually is. The view of the outside of the house is from the back, going down the road which leads to Lake Bled (a very short and pretty drive from the house). If you come through Zasip the house is completely unrecognisable. It does look stunning, but in a very different way. Also the pictures make the house seem very isolated. In fact it is in the heart of the old village, right next to the church. This was not a problem for us however. The rooms were spacious and well presented and they all had a bona fide country feel to them. The house has a huge DVD library, very useful for nights with the kids, and a plethora of local information. The only downside, which (in all fairness) was not claimed in the advertisement, was the lack of outdoor space. There was a narrow balcony (with stunning views, I hasten to add) which could only be accessed through the downstairs bathroom and a small garden which was accessed from the cellar of you had to walk round the house to get to it. Despite all of this the house is unarguably beautiful, well laid out and very spacious. The 3 (and a half) bedrooms were perfect. The loft was really quiet and peaceful. It was also quite separated from the main house, absolutely perfect for kids. All in all a smashing house in a fabulous location (although the Pizzeria is quite a trek away).

We had never been to Slovenia before.
This rural location with lots to see and do, particularly if you like stunning scenery and walks with beautiful lakes, then this is the place. Situated next to the village Church you feel very much part of the community and the locals are very friendly and welcoming. The house has been converted in size and is excellent value for money with all possible facilities you could want including wi-fi. We hope to return. Our host, Uros, was very helpful.

“Nice farmhouse in a charming village near Bled.”
Reviewed 10 November 2011 for a stay in October 2011

person found this review helpful

My family and I stayed at the farmhouse for 5 days in October 2011. The bedrooms are all very nicely refurbished and refurnished, along with the family room. It is located in a quiet village just a few minutes outside of Bled. The owner and agent were very professional and helpful throughout the process. The house has numerous books and maps and suggestions for things to do in the local area.

“Bif comfortable house in excellent village”
Reviewed 21 October 2011 for a stay in August 2011

An excellent holiday let for families with teenagers. The enormous attic room (complete with sofas and DVD player) instantly became the teen ghetto for the duration leaving the downstairs for the adults. Loads of walks in all directions outside front door. Local shop stocks all you need. Half hour walk to Bled.
