Excellent apartment, well equipped and great space for two people. No balcony but with French doors opening onto a view of the whole valley, one wasn't needed. Ideal location, although we hired a car, local tourist buses and trains would enable you to get around. Plenty of well waymarked walks available within a short distance of the apartment. Further afield "must visits" include Ljubljana, Lake Bohinj and don't forget to ask Jo and Ralph about the 50 hairpin bends route!!
A very special country whose people appreciate and care for their environment and seem to live very much in harmony with it - already thinking when can we next visit!!

We had not to regret our choice in any way. First of all the scenic location of house and well cultivated garden under a cliff is really unique. Using the clean pool would have been a special event, unfortunately temperatures were too low. Anyway sitting outside was still pleasureable. The appartement was well equipped, clean and providing free Wlan and Mediathek. Good beds ... !
Location near very busy and touristic Bled is perfect. Quiet but close to sights, shops, cafes etc. Lake Bohinj is also just a 30 minutes ride away as a lot of further sightseeing spots. But we would recommend having a car.
Bohinjska Bela is also a very nice village worth going around having a look for old doors and so on.
Joe and Ralph are very friendly and helpful hosts but not invasive. Very british in its best meaning :-)
What could be improved? I do not know. Just keep an eye on the things.
Farmhouse Katricnek is not cheap but worth every Euro. We can highly recommend this place and would choose it again without any hesitation.

we just loved our apartman which was well equipped, friendly and practical, with kind and helpful owners. (the cute dog is also included :)) The local supermarket is qiute close to the apartman, so we could manage some diner with candlelights at home. The air is so fresh all the time, and it was a perfect base where we could start our tours in the beautiful country. we want to return a.s.a.p.

We stayed at Katricnek as a base for touring the area and found it ideal, being comfortable and homely and in a delightful location. It was easy to reach from Ljubljana and easy to get to Klagenfurt to return home. The village amenities were splendid with a friendly and welcoming local shop and a lovely local restaurant (Gostilna Batist). Good experiences also in all the other nearby eateries.

The accommodation is magnificent. Extremely comfortable/clean and well equipped. The owners are keen to help with anything you need but also take a "hands off" approach if this is your preference. The "apartment" ( it was really a house in it's own right) is stunning, as are the outdoor areas. We travelled without a car and managed fine. The only recommendations I would make to Ralph, Jo and Ollie are;
A portable dab radio would have been an added extra.
A little more info on public transport for those not driving.
Blackout blinds in the bedroom- (hence sleep quality rating) The bedrooms were beautiful and sooo comfortable but the possibility of an occasional lie in ( always difficult with a 4yr old) would have been greatly aided by black out blinds.
None of my recommendations are meant to take from the fabulous nature of this accommodation though- it was thoroughly enjoyed and I highly recommend it. Future travellers- please be sure to visit the lake at Bohinj as well as Bled, both breathtaking .
