Bled, Upper Carniola Region
This non-smoking self-catering TRADITIONAL FARMHOUSE boasts all the comforts of modern living but without compromising its HISTORIC FEATURES. So, while the recent refurbishments mean you’ll enjoy a most agreeable standard of living, you’ll still feel part of a property that has served generations of Slovenes for hundreds of years. Staying in an authentic farmhouse on the doorstep of one of Europe’s most breathtaking and tranquil regions is a truly unique experience.

As a guests at the Alpine Retreat you can enjoy all that Bled has to offer in the way of organised outdoor activities, sporting events and musical entertainment yet feel nicely removed from the trappings of tourism when relaxing in the GARDEN behind our barn, or perhaps with a glass of beer or a wine, on the SOUTH-FACING BALCONY; simply taking in views of Bled castle and watc...

The Alpine Retreat is set in a rural spot around 30 minutes walk or a few minutes drive from the centre of Bled and Stuart has left the house well equipped with information and maps. The house was spotlessly clean, spacious and had everything you need for a self catering holiday. I'd highly recommend it and Stuart has been incredibly...

About the neighbourhood
The Alpine Retreat is sited on the top of a gentle escarpment in the village of Zasip, just a couple of kilometres from Bled. Zasip has everything you could need on a day to day basis including a pub / restaurant, a mini market, a pizza place and even its own schnapps farm. The views from the hillside pizza place are tremendous and the onwards walk around the hillside or through forests to the Vintgar Gorge are a delight.

Bled is Slovenia's top tourist destination, after Ljubljana, but even at the height of summer has an almost sleepy feel to it. Bled is a fairly small town offering a host of facilities, adventure trips and excursions and, in its own laid back fashion, hosts annual MUSIC FESTIVAL and other national and international competitions. For instance, in summer 2013 it h...

How to get there:

Although the drive to Slovenia from the UK is fairly straightforward and can be done in under 24hrs, the house locally known as 'Pr Tonco' (Tony's Place) is easily reached from several airports, Ljubljana being the nearest and most commonly used by guests staying at the house. After your short flight, of about an hour and forty minutes from the UK, you can hire a car from the airport and the drive to the house takes 40 minutes. It’s a straightforward journey and before you know it, you’ll have unpacked your luggage and be ready to enjoy a refreshing glass of wine on the balcony overlooking one of the many breathtaking views. Good times indeed.

Hire Car: If you’re hiring a car from the airport then head to the ground floor of the car park which is directly...
