We are delighted when guests take time to leave a review and welcome the opportunity to improve our guest experience. 

“Thank you for providing such a welcoming, relaxing home to complement our 2 weeks in this stunning location. Your house was everything we wanted – and more! The little extras – books, games, DVDs…and some very useful maps, made such a difference for our family.

“Everything was 1st class – cleanliness, spaciousness, facilities, location, and most importantly – communication regarding every step of booking out stay. Having to postpone our 2019 trip was made much bearable thanks to your understanding and assistance. 2 weeks of swimming, SUPing, biking, hiking, eating, relaxing. Bliss!

“Best wishes for the rest of the season & beyond. Congratulations on creating this little home away from home.”

“We had the most fantastic stay at this beautiful house a short walk from Lake Bohinj and conveniently located near food shops and restaurants. The house is very spacious and decorated to a very high standard, whilst retaining many traditional-style features. Every last detail has been thought of and we really felt like we were at home. We would highly recommend this property and the area around Lake Bohinj which is absolutely stunning. 

“The house is in a perfect location for all kinds of tourists – those who just want to relax and swim in the lake and those who want to be more adventurous.”

“We enjoyed a wonderful autumn break with our two boys aged 10 and 12.  Pr Méžnarjo is a real “home from home” with everything you could need for a relaxing break set in the idyllic surroundings of Bohinj.  Lots to do for young and old, whatever the weather.  We hope to be back!”

“What a stunning house! Hints of the old building coupled with contemporary finishes have made a house a home. We will really miss the mountainscapes from the many different windows, including the tiny ones in the loft. All in all, it has been a wonderful week exploring mountains, waterfalls and the untouched parts of Slovenia. Highlights include the Mostnica Gorge and the Voje waterfall, paragliding down from Vogel and seeing the vast landscape, walking the lake and, of course, spending time in and on the lake!”

“I would thoroughly recommend Pr Méžnarjo. The quality of accommodation, the stunning scenery, the climate and the wide range of activities make it a great place for a family holiday.

“We’re a family of four with two boys aged 12 and 14. We were looking for an active holiday with sunshine and water sports, but had found most Mediterranean destinations just too hot in July. Lake Bohinj fitted the bill perfectly, and Pr Méžnarjo provided the ideal base for a week’s stay.

“The accommodation is immaculate and spacious, with all the facilities to self-cater. The top floor room is enormous with fantastic views out to the mountains, and the body-hugging bed in the first floor double is worth fighting for when you arrive! We loved the walk down to the lake, hiring boats and bikes (all great value) and just enjoying the scenery and tranquillity. There are plenty of walking options too, and if you like a morning jog, the 12k loop of the lake will set you up perfectly for the day. All in all, a very special experience. We only wish we’d stayed longer!”

“What a fabulous house, village and area! We had the most incredible time hiking and enjoying some much needed relaxing time by the lake and at the house. Such a beautiful and well-kitted out place.”

“On the first morning I woke @escapetobohinj, I lay in bed listening to the river flowing and instantly felt relaxed. I texted Liz and said, ‘as the river rushes by, I rush nowhere.’ The calm one feels from this home is priceless, especially when you have few precious days to holiday before hitting work again. 

“This was our first time in Slovenia and, as a family of five on new turf, the logistics couldn’t have been easier. When you arrive at the house, you will see that no detail has been overlooked. The stunning design alongside perfect functionality only get the holiday vibes coming on quicker. Danny and Liz have prepared a comprehensive folder which answers literally every question we had as to where something might be, how it might work or where we might go.

“Ours was a sedentary holiday (brunch, an afternoon hike, reading, dinner… repeat) but there really is something for everyone in Bohinj. The lake water was crystal clear and unexpectedly warm. It’s also ‘engine free’ so we very much enjoyed paddle boarding and rowing with the stunning backdrop of the mountains, while others were paragliding, hiking and taking the cable car to higher heights. I wholeheartedly recommend you prioritise your next holiday with @escapetobohinj.”

“What a lovely house and a beautiful area. It has been so relaxing here, the lake, the mountains and the wildflowers; I think Stara Fužina must be one of the prettiest villages in the world.”
