About this listing
A private room in an old rural villa, which serves partly as an art gallery. The place is located next to river Sava, with beautiful natural surroundings, perfect for hikers, bikers and fishermen, 1 km from Radovljica and 7 km from Bled.
The house, as it looks today, was built in a rural Art Nouveau style in 1929 on a basis of an even older house from the end of the 19th century. In the past, there used to be the seat of a wood trading company and for a while even a village inn and a toll house. Today, the house serves also as an art gallery and the seat of an art society. Sometimes we host art events, such as exhibition openings.
Besides your room, you are also welcome to use the kitchen, the living room next to the kitchen and the balcony in the first floor. If the weather is nice, you can sit in the garden on one of the deckchairs, in the hut or on a blanket.
Interaction with guests
Throughout your stay, someone will be available for advice regarding the place and the surroundings. We are also happy to help you with planning the rest of the trip in Slovenia. Usually my mother is the one who welcomes guests, as she lives in the house. I live in Ljubljana and come once or twice a week, but I am more than happy to communicate with you any time via Airbnb, phone or social media.
The house is located 1 km out of city Radovljica next river Sava. It is a very peaceful location, perfect for recharging, but close enough to top Slovenia turist destinations - Bled and Bohinj, especially if you are travelling by car (both places are also accesible by bikes). It is also really nice just to take a stroll by the river - there is a new interactive info path dedicated to the river. It is also possible to take a swim in it or go on a rafting tour.
We recommend Kunstelj Restaurant in Radovljica for a dinner, where you can try some local specialities made from locally produced ingredients like hommade rolled cottage chease dumplings, buckwheat porridge with vegetables and smoked trout or grilled sausage.
Parking is available right at the house.
The train station is 1,5 km away (15 min walking distance). There are good train connections to Ljubljana and Lesce-Bled.
There is a local bus station right next to the house, with connections to Radovljica and Kropa. The main bus station is in Radovljica 2 km away (20 min walking distance). You can catch a bus to Bled, Bohinj, Ljubljana and many other places there.
Other things to note
We offer two bikes to borrow. Let us know if you would like also to have some breakfast items available like localy produced milk and eggs or home baked bread.
Pets allowed, if they are used to being inside the house and please clean after them, if they leave lots of hair or dirt. Smoking is allowed outside the house and on the balcony. Please don't leave wet towels on the wooden furniture, we'll show you where you can put them to dry. In the bathroom, there is no curtain for the shower, but there is always a mop available to dry the floor if it gets wet during showering.
Hi! I live between Radovljica and Ljubljana and sometimes abroad. I'm passionate about nature and art, which is what I can help you to experience while you enjoy your stay in Slovenia and at my house. Welcome!
