A stunning winter escape to the fairy-tale shores of Lake Bled, with half board and flights, plus either car hire or transfers – includes festive dates

You'll be forgiven for thinking you've entered the illustrated pages of a storybook as you arrive in the fairy-tale environs of historic Bled, with its spectacular mountainous backdrop, enchanting castle towering above the town and mesmerising Bled Island at the centre of the lake's sapphire waters.

Blanketed in verdant forest and crowned with snow-capped peaks, this destination calls for activity; lace up for a hike in the nearby Triglav National Park, rent a rowing boat and paddle over to Bled Island to ring the church bell for good luck, or wrap up warm and hire bikes from the hotel to cycle along the shores of this breathtaking spot. Hike up to Bled Castle – a medieval structure perched 130 metres above the lake – where you'll see remarkable views of the town below and the stunning countryside of the Gorenjska region.

When you're not exploring, Hotel Astoria Bled is on hand to help you recharge: it houses a large restaurant with a terrace from which to take in lovely views, alongside a wellness centre with Sauna Park and treatments using local ingredients and minerals. A state-of-the-art bathing and treatment area spills out onto an outdoor terrace with massage facilities and loungers for warmer days in the crisp alpine air. Hotel Astoria garnered a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Good to know

Please also note that guests must be aged 18 and above to use the Sauna Park.

Visit these cities at their most magical during the festive period, when every inch is peppered with twinkling Christmas trees and festive stalls. Bled has a quaint market, while Ljubjana boasts one of the top markets 10 among Europe.
