Hidden Italy & Slovenia with Lakes & Julian Alps

West Slovenia - Soča Valley & Lake Bled
Your hotels and apartments are set in traditional villages and offer high standards of service. There is an upgrade option in three villages: in Bovec the included option is the Martinov Hram, though you can upgrade to the elegant Dobra Vila; in Kranjska Gora, we offer the option to upgrade from Rožle House Apartments to the stylish Hotel Miklič; and by Lake Bled, you can upgrade from the impressive Vila Prešeren to the exceptional Vila Bled.
Please advise us when booking your holiday if you would like the upgrade options.
The alternative hotels detailed below are only offered if our usual hotels cannot accommodate you. If this is the case, we will consult you, and advise you of any change to the price of the holiday.
