Farmhouse Katricnek
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Staying with Jo & Ralph at Katricnek (apartment 2) was a wonderful experience and we can't wait to return. We stayed in December & the apartment was wonderful, charming, clean and well heated. We were delighted with the location, it is a 5 minute drive to Lake Bled (if that) and you have a much more local/authentic village experience, by which I mean there is less traffic/noise and a lack of tourist restaurants. There's a wonderful, local restaurant down the road called 'Batist' which serves fresh, homely meals (order one between two - portions are massive!)

More about the apartment: - I was initially reluctant to book as I did not realise that some reviews for apartment 2 are actually posted on the Katricnek page (rather than 'Katricnek 2' as it is called on the website). When I realised the Trip Advisor reviews are split across both pages I found glowing review after review and I can see why. It's fantastic.

Ralph & Jo are generous with their knowledge and time, making excellent suggestions for site-seeing and organising activities on our behalf (private snow-shoe guide, ski lessons etc). In addition to being hugely helpful and hospitable, they have created a welcoming home-away-from-home from which to explore this beautiful country. We are especially grateful to them for looking after me on the day I was feeling unwell.

The apartment has beautiful views from the lounge and bedroom and is an ideal location from which to explore the Triglav national park, or Italy, or Austria.. or whatever you fancy really! The bed is extremely comfortable and it was nice to have the option to cook some nights (even though eating out is cheap in Slovenia). We really did feel at home in this apartment and I would highly recommend it.

If you are tossing up whether to stay in Bled or Bohinjska Bela, it's not such a big decision. They are very close (minutes drive) and frankly, there is no free parking in Bled so you usually have to walk from wherever you stay or pay parking.

Lastly, I would say that apartment looks even more lovely than it appears in the photos which don't do it justice. I thought it would be really small but it's a very comfortable size.

Thanks Ralph & Jo! We had a great time and a lovely stay in Farmhouse Katricnek.

My husband and I stayed in an apartment here in January, and it was truly lovely. It was freezing cold, but the apartment was lovely and cosy, and with the log burner in action and the snow coming down outside, it was a perfect winter retreat. The apartment is superbly decorated and has everything you might possibly need.

Ralph and Jo were very helpful, and even had arranged a food hamper on our arrival late at night. A really lovely location and place to stay, and we hope to return and see Slovenia at a different time of year.

The apartment was so wonderful. We stayed here over Easter last year and hope to return soon. Ralph and Jo were very helpful and really had thought of everything to put in the apartment. The fire made the apartment so warm. Sitting on the balcony in the morning was great. the hot tub was an added bonus and the pool area as we had such wonderful weather. we walked and took in all the local sights. We even rang the bell on the island of Bled! The apartment comfortably slept 4 of us.the barbecue area was our favourite and we enjoyed sitting out in an evening keeping warm.

We had a wonderful holiday staying in apartment 4 with our two young children. The apartment was of a very high standard and we made full use of the garden, pool and fabulous BBQ area. Ralph and Jo have created a wonderful holiday destination and we didn't want to leave.

The apartments are in a perfect location and we really enjoyed exploring the local area. The children enjoyed paddling in the local river and we had some great days out to castles, caves, lakes, gorges, museums etc.

We cannot wait to return and have plans to spend summer and winter holidays here in the future

We (2 ad, 3 kids) stayed for ten days at apartment No. 2 and we just loved it. It's quite big, the furnishings are lovely and functional. The view and the surroundings are just great and if you love to climb, there's a wall just two minutes from the house.
Ralph and Jo are very nice and will help with every question you might have.
The only thing we were probably missing was a washing machine and a filter coffee machine.
We will be back another time another year.
