About the home
Farmhouse Katricnek dates back to the 1800's and sits in a traditional Slovenian village close to Lake Bled. It has been converted into 3 top-quality holiday apartments, full of charm and character, but at the same time bringing the house bang up to date with fully fitted kitchens, modern bathrooms, cable TV and WiFi internet. There is also a large garden and heated outdoor swimming pool.
Forgive us if we sound a bit smug but it's turned out really well and we're pleased as punch.

Further details outdoors:
This area is a walkers paradise; there are tens of kilometers of walking trails through the mountains right from the house, plus the Triglav National Park is just minutes away. If that is too strenuous, the large rear garden has our solar heated swimming pool and a large undercover barbecue. Or you can always just hang around on the balcony where the views are nearly as fantastic and pleasantly close to the fridge and the sofa.
The Gorenjska region
Perhaps the most amazing thing about Slovenia is how unknown it still is. A combination of tight lipped refusal by those who have been and don't want it to change, coupled with a lack of advertising budget has meant that it isn't even on most people's holiday radar.
It's difficult to express how different modern Slovenia is to any preconceptions many people might have about Eastern Europe. This area was the most prosperous and liberal region of the former Yugoslavia and officially became Slovenia in 1991. It now has the most successful economy of all the countries to join the EU in 2004. Unscathed by conflict, the stunning architecture of Ljubljana and the spectacular scenery across the rest of the country remains very much as it was under the control of neighbouring Vienna during the illustrious days of the Hapsburg empire.
The Bled / Bohinjska Bela area
Everyone wants different quantities of relaxation and adventure on a family holiday in Slovenia. Some like just a tablespoon of one while others want jugs of the stuff. Helpfully, the Farmhouse is both tranquil and very accessible (just 30 minutes from the airport) allowing you to mix your holiday cocktail exactly how you like it.
You can lounge away the morning at Bled in a lakeside café, tour the island church, then pop into a shop or two before dinner. If you're feeling a little more Indiana Jones you can head down to Lake Bohinj and paraglide out across the beautiful Triglav National Park. There are more activities at Bohinj than you can shake a paddle at, from horse-riding to rock-climbing and everything in between. And once we get everything finished off, you'll be able to head back home and relax in the pool.

We are in the north western part of Slovenia and on the southern edge of the Alps. The area has good links to the motorway system, rail networks (Lesce-Bled station) and budget airlines. Ljubljana is our closest airport and is served by many regular airlines as well as Easyjet from the UK. This airport is small, friendly and quick to get out of! It is only 30min drive from us. Klagenfurt in Austria is another option. It is about 1 hours drive and has flights from Germanwings and Ryanair.
