Effie Perine: Lake Bled Studios and Apartment

 
 
INTRODUCTION

Effie Perine Lake Bled Studios & Apartment are located in a traditional Bled style building, completely rebuilt in 2014 and just 500m from the lake shore. The building comprises 2 studios (Studio and Comfort Studio) on the first floor and the stunning duplex 1 bedroom apartment (Duplex Apartment) on the upper floors - each unit sleeping up to 4 people. Named after one of the leading characters in John Huston 1941 movie classic “The Maltese falcon” (dont ask us why!), Effie Perine is a very welcome addition to Bled's self catering accommodation offering tastefully interior designed spaces with top quality modern fittings and facilities (free parking, wifi & air-conditioning) just a few minutes walk from world renowned Lake Bled - with plenty of restaurants, bars and other amenities in easy walking distance as well as lakeside swimming and sunbathing areas.  

Lake Bled itself is a stunning alpine lake, named by Yahoo Travel as one of the World's 10 Most Beautiful Lakes, surrounded by mountains, overlooked by a medieval castle. The Bled area is surrounded by beautiful scenery and things to do from walks around the lovely Vintgar Gorge and various hills surrounding the lake to great mountain walking and mountain biking on the Pokljuka Plateau, kayaking, canyoning and rafting on the Sava Bohinjka River and its tributaries, as well of course as swimming and boating on Lake Bled itself. Bled is also a great place to be based for exploring Slovenia's many ski areas and visiting Slovenia’s many sights with plenty of easy day trips possible including Lake Bohinj, Ljubljana and the medieval town of Skofja Loka. 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.

LOCATION

Effie Perine Studios & Apartment are conveniently located 500 metres from arguably the most beautiful part of the promenade around  Lake Bled and a few minutes walk further to lovely swimming and sunbathing areas, where you can also hire boats. It is also in very easy reach of all the amenities of Bled town with a supermarket cca 100 metres from the house, and various other restaurants, bars and shops just a few minutes walk away. From the apartments you can also walk up a path to Bled Castle in a few minutes, to enjoy the stunning views of the lake with the Karavanke Alps in the background. The Astoria Hotel Wellness centre is also just a few steps away and a lovely place for a massage or sauna.  

We do have to advise guests that Effie Perine is located next to the Bled - Rečica road, which can be busy at peak times, however, we were surprised by how little impact this has once inside the apartments - evidently the high quality build and insulation levels in the house ensures that any road noise is minimal.

Bled is also a great place to be based for exploring Slovenia's many ski areas - there is a small resort in the town itself but most skiers based in Bled visit the excellent resorts of Vogel, Krvavec & Kranjska Gora which are each half an hour's drive away (or there is a ski bus from Bled to Vogel / Krvavec).
