Villa Bohinca was even better than we expected, with a fully outfitted kitchen where we cooked a lot, comfortable seating and beds, plus lots of space to spread out. The view and the outside deck were even better than the photos suggested - a great way to relax at the end of the day, or get going in the morning. We were also glad we chose to stay near the natural splendors of Bohinj (about 15 minute drive) rather than the overly busy Bled.
This was one of many places we looked at in the Bohinj-Bled area, We settled on ThinkSlovenia because they offered several different possibilities, each with extensive information and photos. Pricing seemed to be quite reasonable compared to alternatives.
We should add that, based on our experience, the people at ThinkSlovenia do an exceptional job in providing self-catering accommodations in the country. Once we chose a place, the booking process was easy. They then sent very detailed information about how to reach the home we chose (as finding your way through small villages on a hillside can be quite difficult otherwise), how to settle in, where to find needs like groceries nearby and how to have fun while there. Instructions on how to use appliances were in the house. When we had questions or any difficulties, they were very responsive both by phone and email. This is how a booking company should work. We strongly recommend ThinkSlovenia and, in the future, would use no one else to stay in Slovenia.

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.
