“Bajtica”, a chalet built 1905, offers the classical “Vienna style” vacation in its surroundings of the 19th Century summer villas built once with the aim to provide families a secluded summer retreat. Situated in a center of Bled but in a most peacefull area, fully equiped and very comfortable.
Slovenia has only one island but its uniqueness makes it more attractive than many an archipelago. Sheltered by picturesque mountains, the island reigns in the middle of an Alpine lake. Its charm has made it a symbol for centuries of a town to which guests from all over the world love to return. This town, which has already existed for a thousand years, is BLED.
On the island in the middle of the lake, the ancient Slavs worshipped Živa, goddess of love and fertility. Pilgrims later came to the church of St Mary on the island. A thousand years ago, on 10 April 1004, the town of Bled was mentioned for the first time when the Holy German emperor, Henry II, gifted it to the Bishop of Brixen. At that distant time, a Roman tower already stood at the top of the cliff rising vertically 100 m above the lake, and it still forms part of the mighty castle that now houses a museum collection. The town flourished in the Middle Ages due to pilgrims, and these were replaced in the 19th century by the first tourists. The Swiss hydropathist, Arnold Rikli, discovered that the gentle climate and the lake and thermal waters are a source of good health and well-being. The local people supplemented the health spa offer with guest houses and hotels.
The town, already famous at the beginning of the 20th century as the most beautiful health spa of the then Austrian empire, attracted the European aristocratic elite. After WWII, one of the most attractive state residences of the former regime was located in Bled. Many of the world’s most important people thus enjoyed the beauties of Bled. And now, for decades already, the pilgrims of the new age have been discovering this town.

Man kann sich keine bessere Gastgeberin vorstellen! AnaMarija ist sehr nett und wir saßen stundenlang mit ihr in der Küche und haben geredet und viel über Sloweniens Geschichte erfahren. In ein paar Minuten ist man am See, das Hausest wunderschön, die Zimmer gemütlich und alles ist sehr sauber!
AnaMarija was a great host. She was very helpful and knowledgeable about the local area and far afield with great advice what to see and where to go. The house is very charming and situated in quiet street 5min walk to the lake. I would definitevly reccomend Bajtica guesthouse to friends and family. I hope to be back soon.
Ana is a really lovely host! My boyfriend and i stayed 2 days in bled and we really liked to stay at Anas guesthouse! We plan to come back too her in summertime:)
Our first experience with an Airbnb-stay and this was one to remember! It felt like visiting family in the charming house of AnaMarija. A warm welcome and always time for an interesting conversation about Slovenia, about food, about... life!
Thank you so much AnaMarija, hope to see you again!
AnaMarija is a very friendly host and she has a beautiful home.
AnaMarjia was such a delight. Cooked us breakfast in the mornings and told us all about Slovenia. She truly loves it. The house was so adorable. We loved it with a view of the mountains from a window. Just incredible. Would absolutely go back!
My friend and I spend this weekend staying at AnaMarija's place. Such an amazing spot, close to the lake with beautiful views on the castle. The room and bathroom were very clean and comfortable and very quiet. AnaMarija was a wonderful host, very warm and inviting and helped us with recommendations of places to visit around Bled. I recommend this place to all, I hope to go back and stay again one day.
