We recently stayed with friends at this lovely chalet style house, which is in a beautiful rural location overlooking the rest of the village of Jereka - the church in the foreground and looking right down the valley with a glimpse of Lake Bohinj in the distance.
The property itself has been extensively refurbished recently to a very high standard and is perfect for larger groups. The large open plan living space is on the first floor so as to enjoy the idyllic views. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable and there are three good bathrooms. There is even a summer kitchen and a BBQ next to the outdoor seating area to the front of the property to make dining alfresco easy if you wanted it.
Jereka itself is picturesque and unspoilt and its location between the wonderful Lake Bled and the equally lovely Lake Bohinj is ideal. In the summer months the area is great for walkers, cyclists and even fishermen and in the winter the large ski area of Vogel ( only about 15 minutes drive away ) looked great when we walked over the snowless pistes on our visit.
We walked round Lake Bled which is absolutely stunning with its castle and island church. We also walked along the north shore of Lake Bohinj from the south and caught the boat back down the lake to our start point. Both walks and the boat trip were really good and recommended.
There are a good selection of local restaurants within easy driving distance of Jereka and the village of Bohinj Bistrica which has all amenities including decent supermarkets is not much more than five minutes away by car
This was our first visit to Slovenia. We were really impressed and would definitely return. It’s a beautiful, unspoilt country and not yet too busy.
Villa Bohinca is a delightful house very well finished and furnished. Situated in a very quiet village about 20 mins drive from Lake Bled. While a car is necessary, it is a very good and comfortable base after a day spent sightseeing. Lovely views with a glimpse of Lake Bohinj in the distance. Try to arrive while it is still daylight as it is rather easy to miss if arriving for the first time after dark.
