This beautiful place has to be seen to be believed. We've stayed in Bled before and returned to find Vila Istra by far the most luxurious accommodation with classic European furniture and beautiful balcony views over the turquoise water of Lake Bled.
Denis the owner and his wife have an eye for tasteful furniture and art and the atmosphere is laid back and classy at a very affordable price.
It was beautiful watching a band play in the garden on a sunny Sunday afternoon, a real European treat.
Vila Istra's chef Miha is very talented and such a nice guy, asking personally what we would like for dinner and then going to the back garden to pick the organically grown vegetables freshly.
This was one of those wonderful experiences in life where everything was perfect, from the friendliness of the owner Denis who is wonderful, to the beauty of Vila Istra with its gorgeous lake view.
This is a stand out European holiday in a beautiful location that hasn't yet been overrun like most of western Europe.
5 out of 5 to Vila Istra and Denis for creating a memorable destination.More
