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...
Getting around

How to get there
Airport: Ljubljana: 30.0 km
Railway: Bled Lesce: 5.0 km
Ferry: Koper: 200.0 km
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...
