Villa Preseren

19th century villa on the shore of Lake Bled

A charming boutique hotel in a scenic location with a dreamlike panoramic view of the natural beauty of Lake Bled, only 10-minute walk from Bled Castle and St. Martin's Parish Church.

This especially attractive Bled villa from 19th century is located under the castle cliffs right on the shore of Lake Bled. It offers two boutique suites and six contemporary rooms with  tasteful equipment.

The Villa Prešeren Bled is a place dedicated to delicious pleasures. Trendy café and restaurant located in the ground floor of the villa enthuse guests with a rich selection of fragrant coffees, mouth-watering desserts, selected dishes and top-quality wines. In nice weather, these treats are served on its sunny terrace overlooking the lake.

At sunset, when the Vila Prešeren gently transforms into a lounge and its terrace begins to swing relaxedly to ambiental rhythms, it is time for a glass of high-quality wine, playful sparkling wine or other selected drinks. The treats from Villa Prešeren's kitchen can be also served on a traditional "pletna" boat which moors on the pier facing the villa.

Stylish villa in a sunny location with a panoramic view of the lake and the mountainscape - worth spending time in this beauty of scenery!

Destination Bled

Bled, the "Pearl at the foot of the Julian Alps" belongs between the most popular and well attended tourist places in Slovenia. It is also famous as a rowing and boat race center.

TOP 3 sights:

  1. Lake Bled,
  2. Bled castle (Blejski grad) and
  3. Bled Island in the middle of the lake, with interesting baroque Church of the Assumption and Gothic lighthouse.

Bled is an ideal destination for active holidays. Surrounded by an area of green hills and mountains in the distance, it provides ample opportunities for sport and recreation (swimming, rowing, trekking, cycling, water sports, etc.) and offers a variety of events in Bled and its surroundings.

Did you know: The beginnings of tourism in the Bled area date back to the time around 1855, when the Swiss Arnold Rikli, one of the founders of some forms of contemporary alternative medicine, revealed beneficial effects of mountain position of Bled and its healthy climate and a long swimming season on human health. He elaborated a program of activities, from water treatment and bath to a healthy eating program. It is believed that his program reduced a range of health problems. The consequence of this, is that already in 1895 in Bled were built the first beach and organized accommodation for the guests.

Symbols of Bled:

  • Bled cream cake - the delicious “kremsnita”. You can't really experience Bled without tasting the legendary Bled cream cake.
  • The Pletna boat – the traditional wooden flat-bottom boat with a pointed bow and the widened stern. The boat is propelled with the special »stehrudder« technique where the oarsman is standing and rowing with two oars. A boat trip with a 'pletna' on lake Bled is very romantic.
  • Coachmen Fijaker - open carriages with a long tradition in Bled. Not anyone can become a driver of such carriage as the »profession« is handed down from generation to generation.

Lake Bled is also an excellent starting point for all kinds of biking tours. Find more information under Lake Bled - Family Cycling Destination . Contact us for a perfect tailor-made cycling holiday!
