August in Bled is a summer hot month! Savica is a good choice. Many activities outside, and may be ziva spa in Golf hotel is free for Savica guests...
In summer you have plenty activities for kids to choose from: horseback riding, canoeing, hot air ballooning, rafting... Some of these activities are also part of the summer programme for children in the Savica hotel (surcharge).
Kids also love the summer toboggan run on the Straža hill right in the centre of Bled. From next summer on an adventure park for families will be opened on Straža hill so you can combine a visit to the park with a toboggan ride.
As they say, it will be hot so swimming in the lake might be top of your list.
There's plenty to do in the area as mentioned by others, but things like hot air ballooning etc might put a dent in the budget but fine if you can afford it.
A bike ride to Vintgar to see the gorge is always a fun family activity.
Thanks for your reply, swimming in the lake would be great and of course inexpensive.
It sounds like there is lots to do in the area, so Lake Bled would be a good family choice.
Take a look
Thanks for the link and sharing your holiday experience.
Fantastic photographs as well.
We spent 5 nights in Lake Bled last November which was one of our trip highlights. All the things suggested above are good suggestions. Make sure you go to the Park Hotel by the lake and have coffee and cream cake. It's sooo good. Over the 5 days we were there I had a few more than one.
We stayed at a Pension behind the mountain in a small village only a ten minute walk to the lake. Probably the cleanest place I've ever stayed at and only recently built. I'll post the web site tomorrow night when I get home.
