Imagine...

As you arrive in Stara Fužina, Escape to Bohinj Holiday House stands proudly in the centre of the village, next to the bridge over the Mostnica River. Easily park in the private car-park across from the house. Parking is at a premium around Lake Bohinj, so it is reassuring to have your own designated place.

Step into the house and you’ll find a large entrance hall where you can unload all your belongings. There is plenty of room to hang coats and store walking boots here. There is also a downstairs WC and a utility room with a washing machine, tumble dryer and drying racks. Everything is on hand to keep organised and to make life easy after an active day hiking or swimming.

Next move into the heart of the house, the light and airy open-plan living, kitchen and dining area. We love this sociable space – you can be preparing a delicious meal in the kitchen whilst chatting to friends and family who are relaxing on the sofa. 

Gather round the coffee table for a board game or grab a blanket and snuggle down for a movie night. You can even cast your day’s snaps from your phone onto the smart TV and watch your own adventure unfold. A room designed for easy living.

In the kitchen, you will find everything you need to prepare family meals with plenty of spare plates, bowls, mugs and glasses so you don’t have to put the dishwasher on after every meal. And if releasing your inner domestic goddess is your thing, we also have weighing scales, cake tins, and cutters to whip up a yummy treat.

Dine at the large wooden table inside (ample seating for 6) or enjoy your meal outside in the fully enclosed garden. Here you’ll find an attractive space, perfect for lunch or for that evening BBQ. Alternatively, take your morning cup of coffee out to the bench at the front of the house and watch the world go by. In the evening, relax after the day’s adventures sipping a glass of wine as the sun sets over the mountains.

As you begin to slow down and relax, you’ll appreciate the original features of this historic Slovene farmhouse. The unique old tabernacles have been restored in oak and now house local guidebooks and maps, not schnapps! The large bevelled openings to the windows flood the room with light, whilst the oak windowsills and beams add warmth and character to the space.

“The house is beautiful, modern and tastefully renovated, yet sympathetic to its heritage. It is so spacious and has everything that is needed for a wonderful home away from home holiday at any time of the year.”

These traditional features are combined with modern comforts to create an elegant holiday home designed for relaxation. In summer the room is kept cool by the thick stone walls. In winter, underfloor heating and a homely wood-burning stove will keep you toasty. As is traditional in Slovenia, logs are stacked at the front of the house so you never have far to go to top up the basket.

“The house has been so tastefully renovated and everything about it reflects comfort, warmth, and a true feeling of home.”

First Floor Accommodation

After an active day outside, there is nothing nicer than falling into a comfortable bed for a good night’s sleep. In fact, one of our recent guests described our beds as “deliciously comfortable.” Head up the hand-crafted oak staircase to the first floor landing – don’t forget to grab some bedtime reading from the book shelf on the way. Here you will find the family bathroom, and two bedrooms; a twin room and a “double” with an emperor-size sleigh bed.

The family bathroom combines modern floral tiles with rustic charm. A walk-in shower offers a quick alternative for those days when you just want to get up and go, whilst the large bath is ready to soothe any aching muscles.

Sleep soundly under the beams in the calming bedrooms, where wooden shutters keep the rooms dark at night. Open the shutters in the morning to flood the bedrooms with natural light and admire the views of the Julian Alps.

You’ll never want to get out of the body-hugging sleigh bed. If you love to stretch out, then this is the bedroom for you. A statement bed, fit for royalty, you can’t help feel special as you climb onto the sumptuous mattress.

The twin room takes inspiration from Lake Bohinj and the surrounding landscape. Blues and greens, coupled with photo canvases of the region, create a cosy feel to the room. Wake up to the sound of the bells as the cows make their way to the pastures every morning. A favourite sight for young & old!

On the landing you will find beach towels ready and waiting for you to go to the lake. One less thing for you to pack in your luggage!

Second Floor Accommodation

Finally, take the stairs to the top of the house to your very own peaceful retreat. 

Exposed beams, a high ceiling, wooden feature wall, traditional furniture, comfy seating and plenty of space make this the perfect place to relax and unwind. Lounge on the super-king bed and soak up the mountain views through the large windows. Listen to the Mostnica river rush past as you rush nowhere. In fact, you may never want to leave your luxurious bedroom suite. 

“My bedroom was on the top floor and I had this amazing space to practise yoga every morning, gazing out on the mountain peaks, listening to the river and the cow bell ring as the famous cow lady passes over the bridge every morning.”

A dressing area, with a built-in wardrobe made from reclaimed wood, offers privacy. The contemporary en suite bathroom has a river-stone basin and a stylish walk-in shower with geometric tiles. And of course, fluffy white towels are always on hand.

The Village of Stara Fužina

Escape to Bohinj Holiday House is located in the centre of Stara Fužina in the north-west corner of Slovenia, in the Triglav National Park.  It is a working village, so expect to see tractors and cows on the roads – you often hear the cowbells before you can see their owners! Next door is the local Gostilna, or pub – a great option for supper after a day out exploring.  There are also two local shops, a handful of restaurants, a Tourist Information Centre and the Triglav National Park Centre

Our Guests Describe the Area...

“The house was the perfect base to explore the local area and to relax, swim, hire SUPs and eat lots of great food! It is such a spectacular part of the world- I’m so grateful we have discovered it. We aren’t usually ‘returners’- we like to discover new places- however, this house is one place that we would like to return to, and would return in a heartbeat if we could!

I have given the house 5 stars and would give more if I could. It is in the most wonderful location, with the village pub next door (and surprisingly never heard any noise) and a beautiful 10 minute walk through the village and meadows to the most beautiful lake.”

“The house is so well located in the middle of the village. We walked to everything – the wonderful Lake is a short stroll away and the food at the neighbouring restaurant was delicious.”

“The location is excellent: the neighbouring house is a restaurant, a shop is a 3-minute walk away, a river murmurs nearby, and it is quiet and peaceful. We really want to come back!”
