Vintage alpine chalet from 1960's with character.

Located on the hillside above Lake Bled in a peaceful area on the outskirts of the forest. The centre of Bled is about 30 minutes away on foot.

The terrace and balcony offer an excellent view of the lake, island and surrounding area. During summer you will also find a grill as well as a table and chairs on the terrace. The grill requires tinder, charcoal and some patience ;)

The space
The chalet was built in 1960 by my grandfather as a weekend retreat. It is not big so it is most comfortable for 6 people, but 8 people can also stay here.

Recently, some of my guests mentioned to me that the chalet is rather small, tired and needs renovating/updating. Because I believe in transparency and don't want to give false information to my guests, I can confirm that. It is not large, it is not new, it needs renovating and I am working on that. No luxury, fancy gadgets or anything like that, just a basic house with basic amenities and patina. It is as pictured, except maybe on the day of your arrival the lighting won't be that bright.

Now that we covered what the house isn't, let's talk about what the house is. It is clean, quiet, homely, and offers a unique perspective on living in an average home in 1960's Eastern Block's Yugoslavia. Basically, it is a time machine with WiFi and lake view.

The amenities are listed, the pictures and reviews are there, but If you need any other information before booking, let me know.

Guest access
Guests will have access to the ground floor with terrace and first floor with the balcony.

The basement is for private use.

Other things to note
Starting from 1st of January 2020, guests will have to pay (in cash) additional local tourist and promotional tax uppon arrival. The prices are 3,13 EUR/day per adult person and 1,56 EUR/day for a child above 7 years of age. Children under 7 years of age are exempt from this.

We also provide transfers up to 8 persons to and from most important places: Lesce - Bled train station 10 EUR, Ljubljana airport (LJU) 40 EUR.

Other destinations are also available - just let us know where and when would you like to go.

The nearest grocery store is at Camping Bled area, about 25 minutes away from the chalet on foot. Because there is a climb back up the hill, grocery shopping can be a bit of a logistical hassle. If you are coming to Bled with public transport, let me know in advance so I can drive you to the supermarket and then back to the chalet with enough groceries.

Hi, I'm Matej! I come from a beautiful town of Bled, situated in Upper Carniola region of Slovenia. My family and I are managing our holiday house for 16 years now, and are always happy to meet new people from all over the world. I'm passionate about growing and learning in all areas of life, self development and inspiring others to be the best version of themselves possible. I love vintage things and stories that surround them. I love to read and write, so if you have a good book recommendation - sharing is caring :)
