Vila Bled Hotel, Lake Bled
Set in a magnificent park on the shores of the lake, the Vila Bled is only a 20-minute lakeside stroll from the town center. The exquisite charm of the villa arises from its elegant and spacious marble interior, wooden floors, and artwork, characteristic of a bygone era.
The Austrian Prince Windisch-Graetz built a beautiful mansion on the site of the present villa when the region was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Subsequently, as Bled developed into a cosmopolitan resort for the European elite, the mansion served as a summer residence of the former Yugoslav royal family from 1920. After the Second World War, the villa was rebuilt into a presidential residence of Marshal Tito, where he hosted many important international statesmen.
We like the Lake View Rooms which are decorated in traditional style reminiscent of the 1950s and have balconies with wonderful views of the Lake Bled and its island with the 17th-century church with the Julian Alps as the backdrop.
