This property boasts the best the region has to offer; proximity to Lakes Bled and Bohinj, to the Triglav national park, whilst being off the beaten track enough to provide the sanctuary and solitude of the forest, in a cozy, beautiful setting.
In 2017 I have added a wood-fired Sauna (10 eur/ guest for unlimited usage) this is a communal facility to be shared on a reservation basis between three cabins.
Looking for adventure, proximity to nature, a break from it all, peace, beauty and comfort? You found the right listing :-)
In the alpine foothills above Lake bled, the valley of Talez, you'll find your little piece of paradise. An authentic 19th century mountain shepherd's cabin, I've given this place a new lease of life as an ecological mountain retreat. All electricity is supplied by solar powers - there's lots of sun in this wide valley! The Cabin also has its own source of natural spring water.
Whilst offering the chance to get back to nature, you'll still be close enough to the main sights to make easy day trips (10-15 minutes from Bled, 25 minutes to Bohinj and the heart of the Triglav National Park, 40 minutes from Ljubljana, an hour from Postojna...). It's ideal for people exploring Slovenia by car - the best way to do it. If you don't have a car and don't intend to rent one, I'm happy to help you out with transport if possible - contact me and we'll organise something.
Something to note: the road up to the house may take some getting used to if you're not used to the mountains. One or two trips and you'll have the hang of it. Don't be scared; it's what they call a MacAdam road, used in areas that don't get much traffic, so as to create a minimal impact on the environment. On your first trip up, someone will be on hand to show you the path. It should be noted that travel time will likewise depend on your comfort driving on the back roads. It's worth it though, and if you ask me, driving through the forest adds to the adventure!
Guests will have access to the entire house, all its facilities for cooking, hanging out by the open fire, as well as the 3 acres of land upon which it sits, which is ideal for camping, barbecues, picnics... Just five minutes walk away, you have the Talez mountain hut, serving great local food and drinks with a stunning view of Lake Bled and the alps all around.
I am currently working on extra amenities, including a Sauna (ready Spring 2017), an outdoor hot tub (planned for Summer 2017), a large outdoor cooking and dining area (planned for Summer 2017) - And this just for starters. These are planned as shared amenities, to be shared between three neighbouring cabins. There is a small supplement for firewood and maintenance of the Sauna (10 euro per guest for the duration of the stay for unlimited usage).
Interaction with guests
I'll be at hand to help you get settled in and answer any questions. Eco living might seem complex, but everything is set up to make it easy for you. I'm going to be staying in a neighbouring cabin, so you can call on me at any time.

You're in the mountains now! Rustic living like this demands a certain degree of independence, so I'd ask that you follow the mountain code : try to leave things as you found them. Otherwise, you'll have everything that you need. This is the perfect place for parties, a great place to have a good time and you're welcome to do so - just stay respectful of the house and furnishings as if it were your own - and enjoy!
No fires on open ground during summer months please - use only the indoor fireplace and designated outdoor fire pits.
