Escape to Bohinj House is proudly positioned in the heart of the village of Stara Fuzina next to the bridge over the Mostnica River. Paths lead directly from the house to various swimming points on Lake Bohinj (the house is 1.3km to the lake - 2 minutes by car or circa 15 minutes’ walk). Stara Fuzina, meaning “Old Forge", is one of the most attractive and popular villages in the Bohinj Valley, and one of the closest to the lake. It remains relatively low key and not overrun by tourists, with an authentic alpine-agricultural atmosphere. In the centre of the village, just 2 minutes’ walk from the house, are two supermarkets, a friendly local restaurant and a bar. The village also offers other options for eating out, a kids’ playground, the Alpine Dairy Museum and Triglav National Park visitors centre. An easy(ish) walk along the Mostnica River takes you up the stunning Mostnica Gorge and onwards to the Mostnica Waterfall at the head of the beautiful Voje valley. There is an abundance of other walking trails from the village, and you can walk directly from the house to start the ascent of many of the most beautiful peaks in the Julian Alps including Triglav, Slovenia's highest mountain.

The main attraction of the area is of course Lake Bohinj, a serene lake surrounded by towering peaks and pristine forests, and considered by many to be the most beautiful part of Slovenia. In Summer, the Lake offers the opportunity for kayaking, sailing and rowing, as well as fly-fishing, swimming or just relaxing on the lake shore. The mountains around Lake Bohinj are fantastic for walking and the area is arguably the best place to start climbs up Slovenia's highest mountain, Triglav. They also offer scope for great mountain biking, canyoning, paragliding as well as skiing in winter.

The ski resort Vogel above Lake Bohinj is one of Slovenia’s best, with a good lift infrastructure and snow record. It is 5-10 minutes’ drive from the house to the Vogel cable car, which is also open in the Summer giving easy access to high altitude walking and mountain biking. A 10 min drive from the house brings you to the town of Bohinjska Bistrica, which offers a modern water park with ample pool and spa facilities as well as a range of useful amenities including shops, bars, restaurants & bank. 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. 20 minutes’ drive away from the house is world famous Lake Bled. A ski bus runs during the ski season on days that are suitable for skiing and the ski centre is open

We stayed here in early September for a week and absolutely loved it! The house is beautiful, modern and tastefully renovated, yet sympathetic to its heritage. It is so spacious and has everything that is needed for a wonderful home away from home holiday at any time of the year. Stara Fuzina is a lovely little village and a great base to visit Slovenia. We did not have a car but enjoyed walking and taking the local buses to and from all the amazing sites on our doorstep, finishing our days off with a swim in thee most beautiful lake I’ve ever seen. Liz’s is a great communicator, passionate about Bohinj, and all their recommendations were on point, which made our first trip to Slovenia easy and very memorable.
I can’t wait to go back to explore more and will definitely stay here again.

My friends and I stayed for 6 wonderful nights at the house and had an amazing time. The house is in an ideal location right next to two shops, a restaurant, a bar, and only a 5 minute walk from lake Bohinj.

There’s also lots to do in the area. We managed to fit in walks, a bike ride, lake swimming, and a trip to Ljubljana, however, in our 6 nights we only scratched the surface and will definitely be returning!

 

Stayed for a week with friends. Lots of walking, running, cycling and chilling. Perfect location to decompress with beautiful scenery and a very well setup house. A very easy journey from Ljubljana airport and very good public transport connections. In particular the train from the next town over which went through the mountain waas very well setup to take bikes! Overall a wonderful trip and an excellent house :). 

There cannot be a better place to stay in all of Slovenia. The house is perfectly renovated, incorporating old tradition with modern comfort. It is equipped with everything you need for a comfortable and easy retreat. The location is divine. A pure alpine paradise right out the front door. And easy day trips to nearby Bled and Ljubljana. We greatly enjoyed our family vacation at Escape to Bohinj!

We stayed 4 nights in the house, it was excellent. The high quality of furnishing, nice interiour impressed us. Very comfortable beds! Well equipped kitchen, beautiful woodwork and fine textiles. Good communication, quick solutions. The Bohinj area is fantastic for skiing, hiking, biking. Cute little villages and gorgeous mountain plus lake scenery. Perfect central location next to the river. Definitely return one day. Highly recommended.

We had such a wonderful holiday at Liz’s beautiful home. The house is amazing so thoughtfully decorated and luxurious to stay in. The beds were deliciously comfortable and everything has been done up perfectly. The house is so well located in the middle of the village. We walked to everything - the wonderful Lake is a short stroll away and the food at the neighbouring restaurant  was delicious. We packed so much in walking in the mountains, paddle boarding, kayaking, canyonning and even paragliding. All Liz’s recommendations - thank you Liz we’ll be back for sure

We have had the most fantastic stay in your beautiful house – thank you so much! It has been the most lovely place to return to each evening – you have clearly thought through so carefully everything your guests could possibly need. We have stayed in lots of self-catering properties in the UK & Europe and this has been hands down the very best, and by quite some way! We would love to return.
The weather has been very kind to us – sunshine everyday & some spectacular evening storms when we first arrived. We have spent our days gorge-walking, cycling, visiting waterfalls, swimming in the lake, taking the cable car to Vogel – all the perfect wind-down after the stresses of GCSEs & A levels back in the UK.
Thanks so much again, we are very, very sad to leave!

We stayed at Escape to Bohinj in July 2022 and had the most amazing week there. The house was the perfect base to explore the local area and to relax, swim, hire SUPs and eat lots of great food! It is such a spectacular part of the world- I’m so grateful we have discovered it. We aren’t usually ‘returners’- we like to discover new places- however, this house is one place that we would like to return to, and would return in a heartbeat if we could! I have given the house 5 stars and would give more if I could. It is in the most wonderful location, with the village pub next door (and surprisingly never heard any noise) and a beautiful 10 minute walk through the village and meadows to the most beautiful lake. Next time we come, we’d like to hire bikes for the week. The house itself is stunning inside. Liz and Danny have thought of everything- the kitchen is well stocked, the beds are so comfortable and the towels and linen are of a really high quality. There are books and beach towels and games and information pamphlets about the local area- everything’s been thought of. We can’t wait to return!

This is the most fantastic place we have ever visited! The house is wonderful! It has absolutely everything! We were delighted to return to this cozy house every evening. The location is excellent: the neighboring house is a restaurant, a shop is a 3-minute walk away, a river murmurs nearby, and it is quiet and peaceful. We really want to come back! Thanks to the guys from ThinkSlovenia, we all really enjoyed it!

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.

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 our 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 sason & beyond. Congratulations on creating this little home away from home.

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 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.

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!

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.

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!

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!

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.

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!

We stayed here in early September for a week and absolutely loved it! The house is beautiful, modern and tastefully renovated, yet sympathetic to its heritage. It is so spacious and has everything that is needed for a wonderful home away from home holiday at any time of the year. Stara Fuzina is a lovely little village and a great base to visit Slovenia. We did not have a car but enjoyed walking and taking the local buses to and from all the amazing sites on our doorstep, finishing our days off with a swim in thee most beautiful lake I’ve ever seen. Liz’s is a great communicator, passionate about Bohinj, and all their recommendations were on point, which made our first trip to Slovenia easy and very memorable.
I can’t wait to go back to explore more and will definitely stay here again.

My friends and I stayed for 6 wonderful nights at the house and had an amazing time. The house is in an ideal location right next to two shops, a restaurant, a bar, and only a 5 minute walk from lake Bohinj.

There’s also lots to do in the area. We managed to fit in walks, a bike ride, lake swimming, and a trip to Ljubljana, however, in our 6 nights we only scratched the surface and will definitely be returning!

 

Stayed for a week with friends. Lots of walking, running, cycling and chilling. Perfect location to decompress with beautiful scenery and a very well setup house. A very easy journey from Ljubljana airport and very good public transport connections. In particular the train from the next town over which went through the mountain waas very well setup to take bikes! Overall a wonderful trip and an excellent house :). 

There cannot be a better place to stay in all of Slovenia. The house is perfectly renovated, incorporating old tradition with modern comfort. It is equipped with everything you need for a comfortable and easy retreat. The location is divine. A pure alpine paradise right out the front door. And easy day trips to nearby Bled and Ljubljana. We greatly enjoyed our family vacation at Escape to Bohinj!

We stayed 4 nights in the house, it was excellent. The high quality of furnishing, nice interiour impressed us. Very comfortable beds! Well equipped kitchen, beautiful woodwork and fine textiles. Good communication, quick solutions. The Bohinj area is fantastic for skiing, hiking, biking. Cute little villages and gorgeous mountain plus lake scenery. Perfect central location next to the river. Definitely return one day. Highly recommended.

This is the most fantastic place we have ever visited! The house is wonderful! It has absolutely everything! We were delighted to return to this cozy house every evening. The location is excellent: the neighboring house is a restaurant, a shop is a 3-minute walk away, a river murmurs nearby, and it is quiet and peaceful. We really want to come back! Thanks to the guys from ThinkSlovenia, we all really enjoyed it!

We had such a wonderful holiday at Liz’s beautiful home. The house is amazing so thoughtfully decorated and luxurious to stay in. The beds were deliciously comfortable and everything has been done up perfectly. The house is so well located in the middle of the village. We walked to everything - the wonderful Lake is a short stroll away and the food at the neighbouring restaurant  was delicious. We packed so much in walking in the mountains, paddle boarding, kayaking, canyonning and even paragliding. All Liz’s recommendations - thank you Liz we’ll be back for sure

We stayed at Escape to Bohinj in July 2022 and had the most amazing week there. The house was the perfect base to explore the local area and to relax, swim, hire SUPs and eat lots of great food! It is such a spectacular part of the world- I’m so grateful we have discovered it. We aren’t usually ‘returners’- we like to discover new places- however, this house is one place that we would like to return to, and would return in a heartbeat if we could! I have given the house 5 stars and would give more if I could. It is in the most wonderful location, with the village pub next door (and surprisingly never heard any noise) and a beautiful 10 minute walk through the village and meadows to the most beautiful lake. Next time we come, we’d like to hire bikes for the week. The house itself is stunning inside. Liz and Danny have thought of everything- the kitchen is well stocked, the beds are so comfortable and the towels and linen are of a really high quality. There are books and beach towels and games and information pamphlets about the local area- everything’s been thought of. We can’t wait to return!

We have had the most fantastic stay in your beautiful house – thank you so much! It has been the most lovely place to return to each evening – you have clearly thought through so carefully everything your guests could possibly need. We have stayed in lots of self-catering properties in the UK & Europe and this has been hands down the very best, and by quite some way! We would love to return.
The weather has been very kind to us – sunshine everyday & some spectacular evening storms when we first arrived. We have spent our days gorge-walking, cycling, visiting waterfalls, swimming in the lake, taking the cable car to Vogel – all the perfect wind-down after the stresses of GCSEs & A levels back in the UK.
Thanks so much again, we are very, very sad to leave!

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.

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 our 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 sason & beyond. Congratulations on creating this little home away from home.

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 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.

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!
