Villa Rečica sits in a stunning peaceful location, just a few hundred metres from the shores of Lake Bled, its island and the Karavanke Mountains as a back drop, with the impressive Pokljuka forests stretching to the rear of the property. 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 River and its tributaries, as well of course as swimming and boating on Lake Bled itself. Villa Rečica is located in a quiet residential area on the desirable castle side of the lake, ideally placed to access all that the area has to offer, with excellent restaurants (including the highly rated 1906 restaurant at Hotel Triglav a short walk away) and the popular Zaka lakeside beach area just a 15 minute walk away from where the path circuiting the lake can be accessed. The centre of Bled town is a 5 minute drive or a beautiful half hour walk around the lake shore.
