    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
    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 BALCO...

    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...

We can't speak highly enough of our stay in the Alpine Retreat. Booking with Stuart was easy and checking in with Ana from ThinkSlovenia was very efficient. They also were extremely helpful when we had a hiccup with our prior accommodation and needed to add an extra night's accommodation. The house is lovely inside with everything that a big family... more

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... more
