Katricnek 3, Bohinjska Bela, Slovenia

Overview

This is a 19th Century Farmhouse, sitting in a typical Slovenian Village and surrounded by farmland and mountain vistas. Bohinjska Bela is just minutes from Bled with its relaxed café culture & wonderful lake. A 20 minute drive in the opposite direction takes you to Bohinj and into the vast Triglav National Park and the Julian Alps, a stunning area with a very wide range of sporting facilities & opportunities - you name it, its available.
The village of Bohinjska Bela is a peaceful place to return to after an active day with its own local shop, bars and restaurants.
The house sits in its own grounds with fruit trees, outdoor pool and an amazing cliff to the rear. Sit on your balcony, enjoy the magnificent mountain views while enjoying some of the excellent local beer or wines.
These are some of the reasons why we have chosen to live here ourselves (so are on site to help with recommendations and advice) - Slovenia really is one of Europes most beautiful areas.
The owners of Farmhouse Katricnek, Ralph & Jo, live on site, so are on-hand to help with advice and recommendations.

Apartment 3
This is a newly created apartment inside this traditional house and is over two floors. It has one double master bedroom and a further twin room, ideal for kids but comfortably large enough for adults. There is a double sofa bed in the lounge which can hold two more guests if required. A large living room with kitchen area opens out onto the south facing balcony with spectacular views.
We aim to make your stay as comfortable and easy as possible. Furniture beds and bedding are new and very high quality. We include all kitchen & bathroom essentials and offer an optional Food Starter Pack of locally sourced essentials so that you dont need to run out to the supermarket as soon as you arrive. We provide towels, fluffy dressing gowns and slippers and more.

Things To Do
ON SITE:
Enjoy our outdoor solar heated pool, or just relax in the garden and soak up the views.

SPORTS:
In terms of outdoor sports we can help you organise more activities that you can shake a stick at. From rafting and biking to paragliding in the summer to snowshoeing and ski touring in the winter, there are qualified instructors for every outdoor activity available. You can book in advance through us to guarantee your place (and avoid constantly having to put your hand in your pocket when you get there) or you can keep it flexible and we’ll help you arrange things once you arrive.

For climbers or those who want to give it a try, the Farmhouse really offers something special. The village of Bohinjska Bela is surrounded on the North side by a thirty-meter high cliff face and our garden backs directly on to a section of the cliff. You can climb in the privacy of back garden, (routes from 6a-8b) minutes from your own bathroom and without having to carry kit for miles, or you can stroll up through the village and enjoy one of the best climbing areas in the country (routes from 3 to 8b+).

GOLF:
Bled has one of the best golf courses in Slovenia. An 18 hole Kings Course (Par 73), plenty of T-offs, great surroundings, well stocked pro shop and a lovely restaurant. Prices from €60 (Sunday rates).

There are many ski resorts in this area, the closest is just 10min drive away with a full day lift pass costing just € 15. All are low key, friendly places where you can enjoy your skiing with no queues and no fuss. We can arrange all kit and passes for you in advance, so you are good to go as soon as you get here. Don't even need to hire a car if you prefer.

Stayed Saturday 28 June 2014 with Couple
Beautiful clean and comfortable apartment. Personal friendly welcome by Ralph - food and drink starter pack much appreciated. Wonderful area with stunning views and many walks from the apartment. Lovely village quite close to Bled but so peaceful. Easy travel to surrounding areas both by car and public transport. The apartment was spacious and the beds were comfortable The pool is super as is the adjoining barbeque area. Ralph and Jo were really helpful with local information and lent us a great book of local walks.

This property was everything it promised to be and more. Everything that we expected was available, but the homely, friendly welcome that we got from Ralph and Jo made it a lot more special. The apartments are beautifully looked after and the pool and its surround make it the perfect place to relax. We has a great holiday in Slovenia and, no small part is this down to the accommodation and our hosts.

What a wonderful place. A fantastic apartment where the owners Ralph and Jo really had thought of everything. The apartment was in an ideal area for touring Slovenia, walking, skiing and even visiting the sea. The local shop and restaurants were excellent and very reasonable. The weather was fantastic so therefore we made use of the pool area, hot tub and barbecue. We would recommend this to anyone who enjoys beautiful scenery. We we even had a Thai massage in a local hotel !

Ralph and Jos converted farmhouse is situated in Bohinjska Bela, a village a few miles outside of Bled. The village has 2 restaurants, both of which we enjoyed eating in, and a shop, all within walking distance (one of the restaurants ins a sdecent walk!). The conversion has been done recently and tastefully, our part of the property having 2 bedrooms and 2 shower-rooms which was great when the 4 of us got back after climbing mountains or swimming in lakes. Ralph and Jo did everything they could to help, with the welcome pack of food and drink appreciated given the time of our arrival and advice and assistance offered on a number of occasions. Im very happy to recommend this property, particularly to people who dont have a desire to be in the thick of the action in Bled where there are countless restaurants, cafes and watering holes.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Farmhouse. The apartment was bright and airy and was well taken care of. The apartment is just outside of the town of Bled and is quiet and peaceful, but it is close enough to hop into town for anything you need. The owners, Ralph and Jo, were fantastic, too. They were ready to answer of any of our questions or take care of any difficulties. They also had recommendations and maps of local sites to visit and scenic drives. The area around Bled is very beautiful and picturesque. This was a genuine vacation that allowed us to relax and enjoy ourselves. If you plan on visiting the Lake Bled area, I highly recommend The Farmhouse for the location and the great value.

Brilliant location within easy reach of airport but near enough to Lake Bled and other scenic attractions to reduce amount of driving if required. Fabulous apartment, all comforts provided and bonus of pool in very hot weather. Local restaurants great and excellent value for money, Slovenian people very friendly. There is as much to do as you want depending on how active you want to be. It was very hot so we paced ourselves and enjoyed relaxation by the pool combined with enjoyment of the local scenery and walks. Thoroughly recommend Ralph and Jos apartments and their excellent knowledge and hospitality. Lovely country and would really like to return at another time of year to see the changing seasons.

We very much enjoyed our stay in Apartment 3 & would not hesitate to recommend it. The accommodation is of a high standard & extremely comfortable. The setting is spectacular with beautiful views from the balcony, and the location at the base of a cliff is unique! The pool & hot tub are a major selling point if you have kids - ours made full use of both. The owners, Jo & Ralph, live in Apartment 4 - very helpful to have Brits on site to answer questions. Bohinska Bela itself it a very pretty village. Its well stocked shop, pub & restaurant are all within walking distance of the apartment. Lake Bled is 5 mins away in the car, Lake Bohinj about 25mins. Both are beautiful & offer a diverse range of activities to suit all ages. In addition there are many other excursions with in easy reach. Although popular, the area is not overrun with tourists. Prices are reasonable, and whilst you wont hear many English voices, we found most Slovenians knew enough so we could be easily understood & there were no language barrier issues.

Very comfortable accommodation. The new pool was the highlight for my children. Beautiful location - we often walked to the stunning Lake Bled, approx a 40 minute walk which was well worth it. Owners very friendly and helpful. Overall a very enjoyable week. Recommended.

The apartment was beautiful - enhanced with the addition of the hot tub and swimming pool, and the views were amazing The owners Ralph and Jo were friendly and very informative about the surrounding area and places to visit. We had a wonderful holiday in the beautiful country of Slovenia.

We stayed here with our two children aged 4 and 6. The apartment was beautifully furnished with lots of homely comforts. It is situated in the heart of a lovely village and the friendly owners are on hand to provide lots of useful local advice. There is lots to do in the immediate area and the facilities at the apartment, including the hot tub, are great for the kids at the end of a long day. We would definitely stay here again.
