Beautifully nestled on the edge of Slovenia’s Triglav National Park, and just minutes from Bled, Farmhouse Katricnek offers a base for all kinds of activity.
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.
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
Enjoy our outdoor solar heated pool, or just relax in the garden and soak up the views.
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+).
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.
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 !
