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 Ski Resort, 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.

La casa es perfecta para un grupo de 10 personas y su ubicación en el valle estupenda.

Posizione perfetta .. Casa perfetta con tutti i confort è molto pulita

Dear Ana,
We had a great time in Ratece at Villa Planina. From the first second I was just wondering, how beautiful the environment is. The big parking place in front of the house ensured a comfortable parking for all of our vehicles. The two apartments we hired looked very new, I loved the built-in kitchen unit and the sofa in the living room and of course the totally clean and white beddings in the sleeping rooms. The loft left apartment was enough spacious so all the 7 people could ate at once. The billiard and the table tennis provided great fun. After Marko came the heating worked in a few hours, so this problem was solved very quick. I loved being in Villa Planina and I will let my friends know about the excellent accommodation and about your very kind hospitality and help.
Best regards

Good morning, 
our stay in Villa Planina was fine. The flats and location were perfect from every point of view. No particular problems occurred during our stay there.
For sure we will refer to you for next holidays in Slovenia, if any, even due to very competitive prices of your offers.
Thank you very much for your help.

Pozdravljeni,

hvala za vaš e-mail.

Sporočam vam, da smo se imeli super. Apartmaji so krasni. Svetli, čisti, domači, popolnoma opremljeni... Internet dobro dela. Lahko rečem v imenu vseh, da smo bili zadovoljni. Ker smo imeli celo hišo zase, smo res uživali, ni bilo treba paziti na tišino.  Super je, da sta v kleti biljard miza in ping pong miza. Veliko smo ju uporabljali. Seveda tudi soba za shranjevanje športne opreme/koles zelo prav pride.  Poleg vsega smo imeli še lepo vreme, tako da smo uporabljali tudi zunanje mize. Res je bilo lepo.

Malo smo razmišljali, da bi prišli okrog novega leta, vendar smo se potem premislili, ker so cene takrat bistveno višje, pa verjetno je tudi že vse zasedeno.

Hvala in se še kdaj oglasimo pri vas.

Lep pozdrav,

Pozdravljeni,

cela hiša z okolico nam je bila zelo všeč (še posebej soba za rekreacijo...). Pa tudi vreme je bilo enkratno za ta čas.

Lp,

We  were very satisfied with everything and have had a brilliant vacation at your place. Thank you very much for the very well prepared apartments and for the very kind presents! We hope to see you again in the near future.

Kind regards,

I wanted to thank you for the opportunity to stay at the two apartments in Ratece. We have had a lovely experience enjoying the accommodation. Both apartments were very pleasant and met all of our needs as a family. We were very impressed by how you paid attention to all the details from the furniture and pictures on the wall, to the new and elaborate kitchen ware and the informative folder about the houses and the area. We look forward to using any of your properties in the future. We learned about you from our family, Yael and Ariel, and similarly we will recommend you to any of our friends who will plan a trip to Slovenia. 

Thank you very much and best regards,

This well equiped apartment in the pretty little town of Ratece close to the Italian border is the perfect place to stay for walking or just relaxing in Slovenia. The town of Ratece does have a perfectly good little shop and quite a few restuarants itself, but is only a short car journey to the larger town of Kranjska Gora for plenty more options for shops and activities. The views from the huge first floor balcony are just breathtaking - I had been a bit worried about being close to the road going in to Italy as I hate traffic noise (after looking at the location on Google satalite map), but I was pleasantly surprised that the road was not as busy as I had expected and it did not disturb me in the least. The beds were so comfortable that I always had a good night sleep - I usually hate double beds as some mattresses transmit every movement of your other half and keep you awake, but this one did not. The kitchen was well kitted out.The pool table and table tennis table in the basement, not forgetting the wi-fi connection, was perfect to keep the teenagers entertained so that I could enjoy the view from the balcony in peace! The management agency Think Slovenia provided an excellent service throughout; there was good communication and they were able to arrange our car hire. All in all I am very glad that we opted for this apartment rather that one in Kranjska Gora itself as the views from this apartment, the facilities and lack of hustle and noise really made this holiday extra special for me (we usually stay in the French Alps, but have been to Austrian Alps and French Pyrenees the last few summers). There were plenty of walking routes nearby or within a short drive to keep us happy for three weeks (with a few days off for swimming in the many lakes close by). We also enjoyed hiring bikes from Kranjska Gora, fantastic value at only 12 euros for the day each at the sports shop opposite the supermarket in the town centre, and cycling along the relatively flat disused railway line which has been converted into a cycle path (goes into Italy too) - great change for easing off tired walking legs. Slovenia itself was much more beautiful than I had expected (lots of handy trees for shade when walking when it is hot, an abundant variety of flowers and pretty, well kept villages) and the people are so friendly - well recommended!

We really enjoyed the stay at Villa Planina. The house was clean, modern and warm. When we entered in Villa Planina me and my friends also found a bottle of wine left as a gift from the staff, it was very kind and appreciated. Also the view from the window of the living room was spectacular. Another pro of Villa Planina is definitely the game room where we had many ping pong matches. In conclusion we are totally satisfied with the house and your kind hospitality.

We enjoyed the stay at the Villa a lot. I wrote my review in Trip Advisor.

We really had a pleasant stay in Villa Planina so i am quite sure we will return to Villa Planina again.

Everything with the apartment was spot on, thank you very much. Especially appreciated the complimentary food and wine. Thanks very much.

In March 2011 we hosted Simon Yeend, a journalist from the Uk's Sunday Express newspaper at Villa Planina and showed him around some of the area's ski resorts and restaurants. He had a great time and wrote about his experience with us here:

A massively delayed response to say that Florence and I had a magnificent week at Villa Planina.  Pia was exceptionally helpful right down to reorganising rafting for us when we succumbed to holiday induced amnesia and forgot what day of the week it was and missed it! A really well run operation and Slovenia is a delightful country for the uninitiated

One of the highlights of our travels was out visit to Slovenia. In particular, we loved our stay in Villa Planina. Well priced (we were out of the high season), well equipped with modern appliances, very tidy and perfectly located for what we wanted to do and see. And your managers always on hand to assist with any problems or queries.I can assure you that we would be happy to stay there again and will definitely recommend the place to others. We also found your personal service to be top notch and professional  - always willing to assist - from car hire to general information and telephonic availability once in Slovenia

I think I will come back soon, as I really liike holidays in Slovenia (have been there for three previous years).
I can say only the best about our stay in Villa Planina. We really enjoyed the location, view and the garden related to lower appartment. The appartments are comfortable and well equiped nothing really missing. I would like to highlight, that Marco and his family were really friednly and supportive and helped us to enjoy the stay.

We enjoyed our stay in Villa Planina very much. the house is very comfortable and clean and the family of the keyholders are very kind. Also we were surprised that the wi-fi connction worked without any problem. In the past we have had some bad experiences in other houses.

Just wanted to say - too short but too good! We will see you next year - for 7 days long. Villa Planina is a real Villa! Nice!

Thank you for your e-mail – we had a wonderful 2 weeks in Slovenia. The accommodation was excellent – both apartments. Thanks

Bili  smo  zelo zadovoljni z nastanitvijo in vremenom- računajte na nas v januarju 2015 isti apartma  točen datum prihoda Vam bomo sporočili v mesecu konec septembra. 

Our vacation in villa planina was great! For us it was a very nice experience to see the exact condition of the villa as it was described on the pictures. The atmosphere in Ratceče village is great and combined with very nice weather we couldn't expect more. We would consider our next vacation with your generous offer. Best regards,

Slovenia itself was much more beautiful than I had expected (lots of handy trees for shade when walking when it is hot, an abundant variety of flowers and pretty, well kept villages) and the people are so friendly - well recommended!

We really enjoyed the stay at Villa Planina. The house was clean, modern and warm. When we entered in Villa Planina me and my friends also found a bottle of wine left as a gift from the staff, it was very kind and appreciated. Also the view from the window of the living room was spectacular. Another pro of Villa Planina is definitely the game room where we had many ping pong matches. In conclusion we are totally satisfied with the house and your kind hospitality.

We enjoyed the stay at the Villa a lot. I wrote my review in Trip Advisor.

We really had a pleasant stay in Villa Planina so i am quite sure we will return to Villa Planina again.

Everything with the apartment was spot on, thank you very much. Especially appreciated the complimentary food and wine. Thanks very much.

In March 2011 we hosted Simon Yeend, a journalist from the Uk's Sunday Express newspaper at Villa Planina and showed him around some of the area's ski resorts and restaurants. He had a great time and wrote about his experience with us here:

A massively delayed response to say that Florence and I had a magnificent week at Villa Planina.  Pia was exceptionally helpful right down to reorganising rafting for us when we succumbed to holiday induced amnesia and forgot what day of the week it was and missed it! A really well run operation and Slovenia is a delightful country for the uninitiated

One of the highlights of our travels was out visit to Slovenia. In particular, we loved our stay in Villa Planina. Well priced (we were out of the high season), well equipped with modern appliances, very tidy and perfectly located for what we wanted to do and see. And your managers always on hand to assist with any problems or queries.I can assure you that we would be happy to stay there again and will definitely recommend the place to others. We also found your personal service to be top notch and professional  - always willing to assist - from car hire to general information and telephonic availability once in Slovenia

I think I will come back soon, as I really liike holidays in Slovenia (have been there for three previous years).
I can say only the best about our stay in Villa Planina. We really enjoyed the location, view and the garden related to lower appartment. The appartments are comfortable and well equiped nothing really missing. I would like to highlight, that Marco and his family were really friednly and supportive and helped us to enjoy the stay.

We enjoyed our stay in Villa Planina very much. the house is very comfortable and clean and the family of the keyholders are very kind. Also we were surprised that the wi-fi connction worked without any problem. In the past we have had some bad experiences in other houses.

Just wanted to say - too short but too good! We will see you next year - for 7 days long. Villa Planina is a real Villa! Nice!

Thank you for your e-mail – we had a wonderful 2 weeks in Slovenia. The accommodation was excellent – both apartments. Thanks

Bili  smo  zelo zadovoljni z nastanitvijo in vremenom- računajte na nas v januarju 2015 isti apartma  točen datum prihoda Vam bomo sporočili v mesecu konec septembra. 

Our vacation in villa planina was great! For us it was a very nice experience to see the exact condition of the villa as it was described on the pictures. The atmosphere in Ratceče village is great and combined with very nice weather we couldn't expect more. We would consider our next vacation with your generous offer. Best regards,

We had a great time in Ratece at Villa Planina. From the first second I was just wondering, how beautiful the environment is. The big parking place in front of the house ensured a comfortable parking for all of our vehicles. The two apartments we hired looked very new, I loved the built-in kitchen unit and the sofa in the living room and of course the totally clean and white beddings in the sleeping rooms. The loft left apartment was enough spacious so all the 7 people could eat at once. The billiard and the table tennis provided great fun. After Marko came the heating worked within a few hours, so this problem was solved very quick. I loved being in Villa Planina and I will let my friends know about the excellent accommodation and about your very kind hospitality and help. Best regards,

Spoštovani! Bivanje v Planini je vedno prijetno, zato se tudi vračamo vsako leto, če smo le dovolj hitri.

La casa es perfecta para un grupo de 10 personas y su ubicación en el valle estupenda.

Posizione perfetta .. Casa perfetta con tutti i confort è molto pulita

Good morning, 
our stay in Villa Planina was fine. The flats and location were perfect from every point of view. No particular problems occurred during our stay there.
For sure we will refer to you for next holidays in Slovenia, if any, even due to very competitive prices of your offers.
Thank you very much for your help.

Pozdravljeni,

hvala za vaš e-mail.

Sporočam vam, da smo se imeli super. Apartmaji so krasni. Svetli, čisti, domači, popolnoma opremljeni... Internet dobro dela. Lahko rečem v imenu vseh, da smo bili zadovoljni. Ker smo imeli celo hišo zase, smo res uživali, ni bilo treba paziti na tišino.  Super je, da sta v kleti biljard miza in ping pong miza. Veliko smo ju uporabljali. Seveda tudi soba za shranjevanje športne opreme/koles zelo prav pride.  Poleg vsega smo imeli še lepo vreme, tako da smo uporabljali tudi zunanje mize. Res je bilo lepo.

Malo smo razmišljali, da bi prišli okrog novega leta, vendar smo se potem premislili, ker so cene takrat bistveno višje, pa verjetno je tudi že vse zasedeno.

Hvala in se še kdaj oglasimo pri vas.

Lep pozdrav,

Pozdravljeni,

cela hiša z okolico nam je bila zelo všeč (še posebej soba za rekreacijo...). Pa tudi vreme je bilo enkratno za ta čas.

Lp,

We  were very satisfied with everything and have had a brilliant vacation at your place. Thank you very much for the very well prepared apartments and for the very kind presents! We hope to see you again in the near future.

Kind regards,

I wanted to thank you for the opportunity to stay at the two apartments in Ratece. We have had a lovely experience enjoying the accommodation. Both apartments were very pleasant and met all of our needs as a family. We were very impressed by how you paid attention to all the details from the furniture and pictures on the wall, to the new and elaborate kitchen ware and the informative folder about the houses and the area. We look forward to using any of your properties in the future. We learned about you from our family, Yael and Ariel, and similarly we will recommend you to any of our friends who will plan a trip to Slovenia. 

Thank you very much and best regards,

This well equiped apartment in the pretty little town of Ratece close to the Italian border is the perfect place to stay for walking or just relaxing in Slovenia. The town of Ratece does have a perfectly good little shop and quite a few restuarants itself, but is only a short car journey to the larger town of Kranjska Gora for plenty more options for shops and activities. The views from the huge first floor balcony are just breathtaking - I had been a bit worried about being close to the road going in to Italy as I hate traffic noise (after looking at the location on Google satalite map), but I was pleasantly surprised that the road was not as busy as I had expected and it did not disturb me in the least. The beds were so comfortable that I always had a good night sleep - I usually hate double beds as some mattresses transmit every movement of your other half and keep you awake, but this one did not. The kitchen was well kitted out.The pool table and table tennis table in the basement, not forgetting the wi-fi connection, was perfect to keep the teenagers entertained so that I could enjoy the view from the balcony in peace! The management agency Think Slovenia provided an excellent service throughout; there was good communication and they were able to arrange our car hire. All in all I am very glad that we opted for this apartment rather that one in Kranjska Gora itself as the views from this apartment, the facilities and lack of hustle and noise really made this holiday extra special for me (we usually stay in the French Alps, but have been to Austrian Alps and French Pyrenees the last few summers). There were plenty of walking routes nearby or within a short drive to keep us happy for three weeks (with a few days off for swimming in the many lakes close by). We also enjoyed hiring bikes from Kranjska Gora, fantastic value at only 12 euros for the day each at the sports shop opposite the supermarket in the town centre, and cycling along the relatively flat disused railway line which has been converted into a cycle path (goes into Italy too) - great change for easing off tired walking legs.
