On the southern side of Lake Bled and its magical island of wishes, a glamorous ecological settlement Garden Village Bled opened in 2014. This adventurous, romantic and exclusive form of glamping resort is the first of its kind in Slovenia. Because sleeping in tents in the wilderness can sometimes be challenging, glamping has introduced a new way of having the camping experience but in an easier and more comfortable way. For those of you who are new to the term, I would best describe it as camping but in a more luxurious and fancy style or simply just glamorous camping. The concept is perfect for people who love peace and like to be pampered in contact with nature.
At the glamping resort Garden Village Bled, you can choose from several different types of accommodation, some being unique tree lodges, smaller and bigger tents and luxury suites. During the hot summer days, you will be able to cool down in the shade of green trees and observe beautiful nature, walk by a stream with a small natural waterfall or observe the fish in the fishing pond. Of course, the experience comes with delicious and well-prepared food, which you will get to taste in a restaurant arranged in a shape of the garden with a stream flowing through it. Almost like a real picnic in nature, right?
Garden Village Bled has gained six stars based on 150 criteria divided into six different areas, which shows the excellence of the place in the fields like the uniqueness of the concept, landscape architecture, quality of employees, the stance towards sustainable development and more. In addition to the “Greenhouse” restaurant, there is also an open-air social room, where children can play and experience fun adventures on the playground. You can discover beautiful Bled and its surroundings using electrically powered bikes, scooters, golf cars, or rent an attractive old-timer car. As the resort is located only a short walk from Lake Bled, you can easily visit the lake and the oldest citadel in Slovenia – Bled Castle on foot or go for a longer hike and explore the beauties of the Upper Carniola region.
Garden Village Bled project is an exceptional tourist concept of a glamping resort, where guests can sleep in wooden tree houses or styled tents on raised wooden platforms, bathe in a natural swimming pond or a fancy Jacuzzi. The resort represents a comfortable escape to nature, where you can collect the fruits from trees and enjoy the natural ambience while being surrounded by natural materials and products. Camping never sounded so good!
