“Great holiday rental experience - we're planning our next trip back”
Reviewed 31 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We have stayed at numerous apartments throughout Germany and Austria but this was our first stay in Slovenia. We evaluated many options and finally settled on the "Balcony Apartment". The decision could not have been better.

The Balcony Apartment is located in the quiet village of Ribno. Staying in Ribno was ideal for our family of four (my wife and two children ages 9 and 12) because it allowed us to remove ourselves occasionally from the bustle of bled yet still remain close to all of the area's activities.

We generally travel by train which is how we arrived at the Lesce Bled station. John, one of the co-owners, was gracious enough to transport us from the station to the apartment. Once settled in we traveled by foot and bus for the remainder of our stay. Reaching Bled by foot was an easy 20 minute stroll. If you are more inclined to travel by car or bicycle then the trip is even quicker.

Our stay in the apartment was very comfortable. A balcony on either side was nice because whenever one balcony had sun the other had shade. The kitchen was well equipped for preparing basic meals which we did on several occasions. The apartment was well maintained and clean. Two floor stand fans were a welcome addition serving two purposes: cooling the air and providing "white noise" at night to soften the ring of the nearby church bells which seemed to ring every 15 minutes.

The owners, John and Elaine, were very pleasant to talk with and were always willing to help out whenever needed. They recommended a nearby restaurant which ended up being a splendid place to enjoy a relaxing meal.

On the day of our departure John transported us back to the train station and made sure we were on our way. We were promptly refunded our security deposit.

All in all a very fine place to stay if your are considering a visit to Bled, enjoy walks in the countryside and appreciate a well maintained holiday apartment.

“Fantastic apartment.Fantastic location.”
Reviewed 11 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

Just returned from a New Years Break In Ribno nr Lake Bled and I've got to say the apartment was perfect. It has fantastic views from both balconies and is in a beautiful location.
The apartment is clean, warm, very well equipped, plenty of hot water and very comfy.
It is a good 20 minute walk into Lake bled but a nice walk. There are also lots nice walks around the village which take through other beautiful villages.
On an evening we didn't tend to go into Bled as there is a lovely Taverna - Pri Stefanu - 5 minutes from the apartment which does good food or we just stayed in with a bottle of wine and relaxed in the lovely apartment.
John - the owner- is great. He is very helpful and friendly. He obviously takes great pride in his accommodation as it is well maintained.On arrival he was there to greet us and show us around. We also had a food pack which included the basics and a bottle of wine (this cost 30 euro) but was well worth it as the shops are closed on a sunday.
The holiday was amazing. Ribno and Lake Bled are so beautiful.
I would definately reccomend the apartment to friends and will hopefully be returning in the near future.

“Panoramic Walt Disney backdrop views from both balconies.”
Reviewed 23 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

What a stunning country! There is a host of things to do in Slovenia, especially in the beautiful Lake Bled area and its surrounding districts. This apartment ticked all the boxes - clean, well laid out, nicely appointed, lovely views from both balconies and all the windows. Everything we could need was provided (and having the owners on site was an additional bonus as they were a font of information for places to go in the area). Having the luxury of 2 balconies gave us the choice of sun or shade to sit in at any time of the day.

Ribno is an enchanting little village, within walking distance of Bled and with a great many interesting walks on its doorstep. The rural sounds of Chanticleer were a joy and although Quazimodo took a little longer to get used to, we now miss them both!

The only addition that we would have liked in the flat was a bath...........not that we went dirty, but we would have dearly liked to have soothed our aching limbs in a bath at the end of our exhilarating days out!
