Pr' Mejnik House and Studio Apartment are located within a 10 minute walk of central Bled, the leading Alpine tourist resort in Slovenia. The lake with a chapel-topped island and the old medieval castle characterise Bled as one of the most beautiful tourist sites in Europe.
Bled is an all year round resort with plenty to do in both Summer and Winter and it is the starting point for many outdoor activities and adventures. Aside from the Lake and mountains, the town has numerous bars, restaurants, shops and even a casino. It is located in the Gorenjska region of Slovenia and is only a 20 minute drive from Ljubljana (Brnik) airport, 45 minutes from central Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, 45 minutes from Klagenfurt airport in Austria and only two hours to Maribor wine region and Piran on the Adriatic coast. Bled is also only a four hour drive from Venice and two hours from Salzburg.
The love affair with Slovenia began in June 2007 after we had been to a wedding in Austria and decided to spend a few extra days discovering the neighbouring country. After a couple of nights in the beautiful town of Piran, visiting the stunning Skopje Caves and a stop in Ljubljana for a lunch by the canal side, we discovered Bled.
Bled had such a profound affect on us both, that it prompted me to propose whilst rowing back across the lake from the magical island. After returning to the UK, we decided it would be a great place to again and again. Persuading Nicola's brother Tim to joimn us in this venture we now offer this beautiful property to rent in the hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
The house was initially so run down and filthy it was christened the 'Crack House' but after the help of Alf Moolman and Urban Urbanc, his incredible team of builders who were willing to take on the refurbishment work - Mejnik House was created. Mejnik is the Slovenian word for Milestone - a combination of the owners surnames - Clive and Nicola Miller and Tim Stone.
