Location and activities
Mostnica Cottage is in a peaceful and idyllic position overlooking the Mostnica River with walking trails direct form the house to Lake Bohinj and up the stunning Mostnica Gorge. There are no neighbours on one side as it is the last house on the street giving an extre sense of privacy especially in the garden to the rear of the house. On two sides of the house are lovely views of local mountains and forests and of course of the Mostnica River. The village of Stara Fuzina is located on the shore of Lake Bohinj (the house is 1.3km to the lake - 2 minutes by car or circa 10 minutes walk) and is one of the most attractive and popular villages in the Bohinj Valley and the start point for ascents of many of the most beautiful peaks in the Julian Alps including Triglav, Slovenia's highest mountain. There are restaurants, bars and supermarket all a two minute walk from the house, and plenty more amenities within a 15 minute walk.
The main attraction of the area is of course Lake Bohinj, a serene lake surrounded by towering peaks and pristine forests 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 of Lake Bohinj are fantastic for walking and 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.
The ski resort Vogel above Lake Bohinj is one of Slovenia’s best with 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 5 min drive from the house is 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. 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.
