Farmhouse Katričnek dates back to 1897 and sits in the traditional Slovenian village of Bohinjska Bela, close to Lake Bled. We, the current owners (originally from the UK) have converted this old house into 3 top-quality holiday homes, full of charm and character, but at the same time bringing the house bang up to date with fully fitted kitchens, modern bathrooms, cable TV and WiFi internet.
This area is a walkers or cyclists paradise; there are days & days of walking and cycling trails through the mountains and valleys right from the house, plus the Triglav National Park is just minutes away. If that is too strenuous, the large rear garden has our solar heated swimming pool and a large undercover barbecue. Or you can always just hang around on the balcony where the views are nearly as fantastic and, well, pleasantly close to the fridge and the sofa.
Inside you'll find all the comforts of home with none of the hassle or distractions, but you can read more about that on the next page... The Accommodation.
Everyone wants different quantities of relaxation and adventure on an Alpine holiday. Some like just a tablespoon of one while others want jugs of the stuff. Helpfully, the Farmhouse is both tranquil and very accessible (just 30 minutes from the airport) allowing you to mix your holiday cocktail exactly how you like it.
You can lounge away the morning at Lake Bled in a lakeside café, hire a boat & tour the island church, then pop into a shop or two before dinner. If you're feeling a little more Indiana Jones you can head down to Lake Bohinj and paraglide out across the beautiful Triglav National Park. There are more activities at Bohinj than you can shake a paddle at, from horse-riding to rock-climbing and everything in between. Lovely.
When planning your trip to Slovenia, you might like to bear in mind that the most common comment we get from guests as they are leaving is: "Jings, I wish we were staying for longer!" Honest.
