Travelled with 4 adults.We found the appartment a little small.There were 2 bedrooms, one rather small where there were enough space for a double bed and a small sideboard.
My 32 year old daughter slept in a bunk bed in the lounge.
The kitchen was very small.There were 2 rings on the hob. No oven, dishwasher or washing machine. We ate in the kitchen as the weather was poor and we could barely moved as I explained that there were 5 adults in the group.
The owner was quite friendly and thoughtful but a little mean with the heating.
I also felt the flat was a bit dark because it was below the road in the kitchen.The view was poor as it was overlooking other houses in the bedrooms and lounge.You needed the light on in the kitchen even in the morning.

"A wonderful holiday in a comfortable apartment in a superb location."
We were looked after extremely well from the moment we arrived. The accommodation is very comfortable and pretty, with good facilities and everything spotlessly clean. Boza and Borut were unfailingly helpful and hospitable with nothing being too much trouble. Bohinjska Bela is a beautiful village and is situated in an ideal location for exploring the surrounding countryside and mountains.

"The ideal holiday home"
A little bit dificulty finding the appartment although it is well signposted but well worth it. The appartment was spacious, comfortable, homely and very well equiped. The area has everything from beautiful scenery to exhilerating walks and the owners could not be more friendly or helpful. Well recommended!!!!!!

We stayed in the main house as well as apartment #2. They are both the same size, but apartment 2 is more spacious due to one less bedroom space. We chose to hang out as a family in the living room of apartment 2 with many beds in the main house (downstairs). The view is pretty, all amenities are available, and we also enjoyed the balcony at night. It is a quick drive into Bled (5 minutes). My father and I originally stayed right in Bled ...walking distance to the lake etc., and we moved here when my brother and his family arrived to stay with them and for us to have more room. Despite not being on the lake of Bled to walk to things, it was definitely worth the stay at this place instead. It is roomier than most places near the lake and the perfect place for a larger group to stay. Apartment 2 is good for 2 or even as many as 6 if you don't mind that. Borut and Bozak are wonderful people ...so kind. They welcomed us into their home and were very helpful. Great place to stay!

"A wonderful family experience in one of the most friendly and beautiful places in the world"
We just got back from our weekend stay at Apartment Torkar and I wanted to hurry to right this review so others could see it and choose this remarkable place for their vacation. I traveled there with my husband, our daughters, and our dog over the long holiday weekend. The only mistake, thinking that a long weekend was enough time to spend in beautiful Slovenia! The Torkars are very gracious hosts and the apartment was immaculate when we arrived. The covered porch was a peaceful place to sit in the evening with a nice glass of wine and just enjoy the silence and reflect on the beauty that is all around you. We are Americans living in Germany for a short time so we have tried to make several short trips throughout Europe and typically rent apartments everywhere we go because of the children and the dog and this was one of the best experiences we have had. The children felt so at home and they were very upset when we had to leave. You will need a car to get around but, if you are flying into Ljubljana you would have one anyway. If you want bright lights and excitement then you should look elsewhere. If you are looking for peace, stunning beauty, and amazing company then you have found the right place. I would recommend it highly and I think we are going to break one of our rules about never doing the same thing twice and return here again!

"Amazing area, great accomodation, outstanding hosts"
I came to Bled on business, having never considered Slovenia as somewhere to go on holiday. Loved the area but had planned to go on holiday in Venice and then onto the Med. Venice was great but where we (myself and my girlfriend) planned on the Med wasn't, so went into an internet cafe and started to drive back to Bled straight away. We rang the owners of this apartment with 2 hours notice and they were fantastic from that moment onwards until we left.
The apartment was great; it has been nicely done with obvious care and a good finish. My girlfriend particularly loved the terrace from the moment we arrived. The apartment was clean and airy. We also had a look at the other apartment (also sleeps upto 6) and it matched in quality and finish. There was plenty of parking by the apartment and a supermarket 5-10 mins walk down the hill. If I had to be negative (and for the purpose of being balanced) I would say the kitchen was on the smaller side but well kitted out and so you were never left wanting and the two main bedrooms didn't have that much room for a bulky suitcase.
The family that owned the apartment made our holiday. They were so kind and welcoming. They gave great advice about where to go and how to get there. I was genuinely touched by the efforts they made and felt truly at home. For a day trip to the Gorge we hired bikes from them (good quality mountain bikes - helmets, lock and water bottles provided) at a rate well below that being charged in the town.
Do I recommend this holiday rental? YES, by a country mile. It was affordable, practical and very quaint. And due to fantastic hosts - an experience money can't buy. As a result I would recommend this above the main 4* hotel in town (where I stayed while on business) to my family, friends and anyone who is considering going to Slovenia.
