Chalet Alpinka, Krvavec ski accommodation, Slovenia:

 
 
INTRODUCTION

Chalet Alpinka offers lovely alpine accommodation in beautiful nature at 1500m on Krvavec mountain just 100m from the nearest ski lifts of Krvavec Ski Resort. The chalet comprises two, thoughtfully furnished, semi-detached houses (House 1: 1 double, 1 quadruple bedroom + 2 extra beds, House 2 : 2 x double bedrooms + 2 extra beds), each with private balcony and sunny terrace, and shared BBQ area & games room. Wonderful views of surrounding alpine scenery and the Julian Alps in the distance come as standard! In Winter the obvious draw is the skiing - Krvavec is not just one of Slovenia's best all round resorts, but is the closest resort to a major international airport in Europe (transfer is under 30 mins door to door). Summer offers alpine scenery, peace and tranquility not to mention magnificent hiking and biking opportunities from the doorstep, paragliding in close proximity and the Krvavec Summer Park with a range of activities for kids and adults alike. The games room is a fantastic asset with table tennis and table football on the menu and lots of further games and sports equipment available for use outside in Summer. The chalet is within a short walk of a choice of restaurants and is well located for exploring some of Slovenia's best sights - with Ljubljana, Lake Bled, Skofja Loka, Kamnik & Velika Planina all within an hour's drive.

LOCATION

Chalet Alpinka is located in the midst of alpine pastures and forests just 100m from the nearest lifts in the Kriška Planina area of Krvavec ski resort, arguably Slovenia’s best all round ski area with a good range of skiing for all abilities, decent lift infrastructure and a long season thanks to artificial snow making and reasonably high altitude. The Kriška Planina part of the resort connects in to the main ski area but is a little quieter and calmer and Chalet Alpinka retains a nice sense of privacy and space with only a few other neighbouring houses and wonderful views on one side of the chalet to the Julian Alps and Triglav : Slovenia's highest mountain. There is a wide range of other ski areas in Slovenia / Italy / Austria within day trip distance from the property. Please click here for a map / guide to these resorts.

 

In Summer months there is excellent walking from your doorstep with a range of fantastic
