We emailed Ana Marija directly to make our booking and knew then this would be a different experience. If you want to stay with the locals in a quiet area, close to the lake without worrying about thread count on sheets and fluffy white gowns stay here! Vintage Art House is welcoming clean, calm and slow 5 minutes walk to the lake. Ana Marija and her daughters have a wealth of knowledge about what to do, how to do it and provide a personal perspective of historic and modern day Slovenia. Freshly made breakfast in the garden was another highlight. We loved it.
Villa Bajtica is set in a pretty garden on a very quiet lane just a short walk to Lake Bled. Ana Maria, our host was incredibly kind and helpful in terms of giving us info on the best places to see in the area, at the same time giving us our own space and privacy. Our room was homely and clean. We had a wonderful couple of days in Slovenia , made specially memorable by our stay at Bajtica.
The house is beautiful, cozy and will make you feel very relaxed. There is classical music playing throughout the day, which makes the atmosphere really calm and inspiring. Ana Marija was very welcoming, friendly and gave a lot of interesting information. Highly recommended.
Everything about Villa Bajtica is excellent. The host Ana Maria and her daughters were warm souls that welcomed me into their beautiful and eclectic houses. We shared tea, coffee, drinks, and meals in their gardens, but it was the conversation that was most memorable. I really felt like I got to appreciate Bled because of them. If you’re looking for a big fancy hotel, this is not the place. If you want to be reminded of why we travel, to meet and connect with locals, this is the place to stay at.
Honestly so lovely. Beautiful cottage, spacious garden, really close to the lake but away from any feel of tourism. Despite the cold weather it was always warm inside. We were met by Meta and Anna Marija when we arrived and were made to feel very welcome. Couldn't recommend more and would love to return. ☺
