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. 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.
Cosmopolitan seekers of diversity and beauty, of relaxation and inspiration, tranquillity and the challenges of sport will find here a multitude of opportunities. Walking and coaching trails around the lake, traditional boats, ringing the island’s wishing bell, the castle treasures, the nearby ski pistes, mountain trails, golf courses, hunting, fishing, the casino, congress facilities – all these are but fragments of Bled’s attraction, which is truly worth experiencing. And those who experience it, long for it again and again….
Non smoking Apartment.
Very good experience staying for a few days. The apartment is 10-15min walking to the Lake, in a quiet street. The room is spacious, clean and with a fully equiped kitchen. Natalija was very nice and helpful, she knows the area inside out. Overall a very good experience!
This is a very good choice in Bled. Natalija is very responsive and helpful in advance by e-mail, and she actually has an office set up in the building so that it is much easier to find her and get checked in when you arrive than at some AirBnB establishments. I believe she has 3 apartments for rent, and all are on the top floor. Mine was on the side and had a large balcony; the apartment was a good size and well-equipped for 1-2 people. No oven, but a good stove and mini-fridge. The bed, like many in Europe, is two twins put together. There's a good amount of storage space for clothes. I heard some noise in the mornings from the occupants below my apartment, but I am a light sleeper, so others might not notice. I didn't encounter Natalija much while I was there, but when I did ask for something, she followed up. It's about a 15-minute walk to the lake, which is perfect for me (I don't like to be right in the middle of things), but consider that if you want to be really close to bars, etc. Overall, I'm glad I stayed there. Price was good for the quality, too.
Very nice appartment with majestic scenary. Quiet and just 10 min from the lake.
A comfortable and cosy apartment just a short walk from the beautiful setting of Lake Bled. Natalija is a wonderful host, very professional and extremely kind - in fact, she even brought us to the railway station late in the evening!
Great apartment, matches what is shown on the site. Natalija was a great host and even picked us up from the bus stop. It's a solid 15 minute walk to the lake but if that doesn't bother you than you should definitely stay here!
Das Appartment war freundlich, sauber und mit allem ausgestattet was man braucht. Ich wawr sehr zufrieden und kann diese Unterkunft nur empfehlen.
Natalja was a nice host. Unfortunately we didn't stay in exactly the same apartment as shown in the pictures, but in the apartment next to it. It was about the same size and the same equipment. It is a 15 minute walk to the Lake of Bled, and about 10 minutes to the next supermarket (same way). We visited the Triglav National Park several times during our stay, and we can recommend the accommodation to everyone who wants to visit the area. You can park your car in the yard, which is really good because the street is quite narrow.
