I’m looking for a three-bedroom place to move, and I love this one, but it's more than a little out of my budget. The high price is not because it's in Ljubljana, or on the coast, but rather in Bled, the site of Slovenia’s most iconic view, a place with fantastic holiday potential, and / or a base for an active career, as it’s still within commuting distance of Ljubljana, just 30 minutes by car and the same for Italy and Austria.
