About This Listing
Our 2 bedroom apartment is located in a hilly countryside near the medieval town of Radovljica overlooking Julian Alps. It is also in close proximity to Lake Bled (5 km) and is easily reachable by car (3 km from the highway Villach – Ljubljana), by train (7 min. walk), or by bus (10 min. walk). Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia is 45 km (30 min.) away by car or 50 min. away by train or bus ride. Distance to Austrian border is 25 km (by highway A2) and Italian border is 45 km away (by highway A2 and route 201).
Apartment is 100 square meters large and features 2 bedrooms (one with queen size bed and other with two single beds), both with access to private balcony, a bathroom with bathtub, fully furnished and functioning kitchen with many appliances, a living room with cable TV and WIFI internet connection that is available throughout the apartment. There is another private balcony connected to the living room and kitchen with amazing view of the Julian Alps.
Apartment is conveniently located between two mountain ranges, the Julian Alps & the Karavanken (Alps), with Sava river dominating the valley and Bled lake located nearby. As such it is a good starting point for many hiking and bicycle trails in the area. Other sports that can be practised in the summer: swimming, horseback riding, fishing, rafting, kayaking, summer sliding, paragliding and flying (just a few km away there is an airport for sport planes). Close to Bled there are numerous golf and tennis courses. In the winter you can try one of many ski slopes in the area, or experience ice-skating in Bled or Bohinj lake. On our farm we offer horseback riding lessons or guided horseback riding tours, bicyle rentals, farm tours as well as tours of the surrounding areas. We would be happy to pick you up at any of the nearby airports (Ljubljana, Trieste, Venice, Munich, Klagenfurt, Vienna, Graz, Zagreb, Budapest Airport) or stations and provide you with all the necessary information for comfortable stay. Looking forward to hear from you!
No smoking inside the apartment and no pets please. You can smoke outside on the balconies. No loud noises between 10:00 PM and 8:00 AM. Thank you!
We stayed at Alma's rental apartment for one night while passing through Slovenia. Alma was gracious hostess and we felt very welcome in her home. Her farm is in a great location within easy walking distance of town and has a beautiful view of the mountains. The apartment was clean, spacious, and comfortable. We would have liked to stay longer!
We spent a week at Alma and Dimitar between 27 December and 3 January. We loved the welcome accorded to us despite the very late hour of our arrival. Our hosts were very caring for us and we spent the evening of New Year's Day to talk about our respective lives and our country. After the diner, we went to Jlubjana with Alma who made us discover the city with the fireworks and music everywhere! It was amazing!
Radovjlca is a charming small town in a beautiful area, near a beautiful lake (Bled)s urrounded by mountains . Our apartment was warm, clean and very comfortable. A thousand thank you for this quiet time and your availability. See you soon in France!

This is the perfect base to explore the Julian Alps!
The apartment is very spacious and clean. Alma and her family are kind and welcoming. Situated on a farm, 10 minutes walk to Radovljica center, this is a great setting and the view from the balcony at sunset is amazing.
Stay there, you won't regret it!
We were extremely happy with Alma's flat. It is very big compared with other flats we have had - about 100m2. It was located on the 3rd floor and has magnificent views of the Triglav mountains and surrounding rural area. Alma's mother greeted us on arrival and Alma saw us off on departure and they were very friendly and cooperative, not to mention the tasty apple juice made from apples on their farm.
It was in a relatively convenient location for sightseeing in the Bled area and is only a ten minute walk (up a steep incline) to the old city of Radlovjica.
The 2 bedrooms were extremely spacious and comfortable as was the lounge.
Overall we were very happy with our stay at Alma's flat and can highly recommend it to travelers. Thank you Alma.
Alma's apartment is very clean and spacious. Its easy to walk to the nearby town or drive/bus to area attfactions. Alma and her mother are very sweet people and we enjoyed meeting them. They have info on what to do, where to eat, grocery stores, etc which was very helpful. Many area hikes. We enjoyed the Vintar Gorge walk, rowing on Lake Bled, eating Lake Bled cream cake and exploring the Castle.
Almas place really sets the standard for this kind of rental experience. Everything you could want is supplied and it's all really well thought out. Every thing from the directions to the information of the area is spot on. Both Alma and her parents were charming and helpful and generous with their time. It doesn't hurt that it is in such a stunning location either. Fully recommend staying here.
My husband and me stayed at Alma's apartment in the beginning if September and despite the less than stellar weather it was fantastic.
Alma is a wonderful host - she answered all our questions even before we arrived and her driving instructions were much better than the GPS. When we arrived, Alma was at work, but her father welcomed us and explained everything. We also got the pleasure of meeting Alma's mother during the stay, who is also incredibly nice and kept giving us food gifts and a care package when we left for home. Everyone in the family speaks decent English, Alma's English is excellent. We also learned interesting things about modern and historic Slovenia.
The farm is located very nicely, 10 minutes walk from the old town of Radovljica with nice restaurants and historical sights. It is 10-15 minutes drive from Bled and also suitable for day trips to Ljubljana, Triglav national park and many more. It's calm, but well connected - though the last part is a bit off-road. The view is beyond stunning!! We spent most evenings (and some mornings) with a hot cup of tea watching the mountains and roaming animals.
The apartment is very clean, provides a fully stocked kitchen, a washing machine (didn't use), TV with DVD player (didn't use) and information material about touristically places in Slovenia. Alma provides a prepaid phone so you can reach her without roaming fees. We didn't need it because of our own phone plan, but it's a very thoughtful gesture and Alma was always available for our questions.
Alma gave us a tour of her farm and we could see the animals and hear about its history, she arranged riding lessons for us - thank you, Katia! - and let us stay longer than check out time without extra fee.
We can only recommend the place and will definitely return. Thank you Alma for hosting us!
