Villa Planina Kranjska Gora Apartments:

 
 
INTRODUCTION

Villa Planina sets new standards in Kranjska Gora apartments, offering spacious and luxurious self catering accommodation for groups of 2-20 in four apartments in an alpine chalet with wonderful uninterrupted views of the Julian Alps. Villa Planina is located in a quiet spot on the edge of the charming authentic alpine village of Ratece just a few kilometres out of Slovenia’s most famous mountain resort - Kranjska Gora - and within walking distance of several excellent local restaurants and amenities with fantastic walking and mountain biking right from the doorstep of the villa and a wide range of Winter sports in very easy reach, including skiing at Kranjska Gora (5 minutes drive) and Tarvisio Monte Lussari (15 minutes drive). The four apartments each offer extremely spacious, comfortable and well equipped accommodation, each with large balconies with fantastic views and a communal games room and kid's soft play room in the basement.

LOCATION

Villa Planina, Kranjska Gora Apartments are situated in a beautiful, peaceful position on the edge of the village of Ratece. Ratece is a charming Slovenian mountain village five minutes drive from Kranjska Gora, offering an authentic alpine experience, several excellent traditional restaurants, renowned in the region amongst local Slovenians, Italians & Austrians and various local amenities such as post office, supermarket and bars. The Villa itself offers uninterrupted views of some of the Julian Alps’ most majestic peaks and offers a huge amount of stunning walking and mountain biking from the doorstep – for example up the wonderful Tamar Valley into the Triglav National Park or to the triple border, the point where Italy, Austria & Slovenia meet. Beautiful Belopeški Lakes (Laghi di Fusine) are on the Italian side of the border, just a short drive away. In winter there is skiing just 5 minutes drive or bus away at Kranjska Gora, a superb resort for families and beginner – intermediate level skiers. The excellent resort of Tarvisio Monte Lussari in Italy is just 15 minutes drive from the house and the resorts of Bovec -Sella Nevea (Italy – Slovenia), Arnoldstein Deilandereck & Gerlitzen (Austria) are cca 30 minutes drive, with a number of other resorts reachable as an easy day trip within an hour. Skiing 3 resorts in 3 countries in a weekend is an unforgettable experience that is easily possible from Villa Planina. 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.

There is extensive cross country skiing in walking distance of the house and the house is one of the closest places to stay to the annual World Cup Ski Jumping at Ratece Planica - the world’s highest and most famous ski jumping venue. Kranjska Gora itself is the most famous mountain resort in Slovenia, hosting annual world cup skiing and ski-jumping events. But with stunning mountain scenery, great access to the Triglav National Park and a host of outdoor pursuits (e.g. walking, mountain biking, horse riding) it remains very popular all year round. Lake Jasna, a short walk out of the centre of Kranjska Gora offers a stunning place to swim and sunbathe in beautiful mountain scenery. The town itself is a pretty alpine affair, very family friendly, with lots of lively restaurants, bars and a couple of swimming pools / spas. There is a regular daily bus service between Ratece and Kranjska Gora, great for getting to the ski slopes.

 

" Did you know that Kranjska Gora was one of Time Out Magazine's ulitmate ski holidays in 2009?"

 

"Kranjska Gora: the Eurozone's best value ski resort according to UK Post Office Ski Resort Report 2012"

 

"Virtualtourist.com users vote Kranjska Gora as #5 global ski resort for groups comprised of skiers and non skiers. "
