With its “magical mountain setting”, Slovenia’s Lake Bled has “all the appeal of Switzerland, but without the high prices”, according to The Daily Telegraph. Here’s a case in point -- for £299 per person, this offer from Inghams saves up to 51% on the usual price and comes with flights, transfers, meals and more.

In full, you get:

  • Seven nights at the 3-star Hotel Astoria in Bled, based on two sharing
  • Breakfast and a 3-course buffet dinner daily
  • Free welcome drink, free daily packed lunch and free daily tea, coffee and biscuits
  • One free Slovenian dinner, featuring traditional dishes and music
  • One free dinner at Bled Castle (not including transport)
  • Free use of the lakeside lido (up to three times per week)

Valid for departures from London Gatwick on 1, 8 June. Travel on 15, 22 June for £50 more per person; on 29 June; 6, 13 July for £70 more per person; or on 20, 27 July; 3, 10, 17, 24 August for an extra £100 per person.

Transfers and 20kg baggage are included.

The Hotel Astoria is close to the centre of Bled, a picturesque town set in the foothills of Slovenia's Julian Alps. The hotel is a few minutes' walk from the distinct turquoise waters of Lake Bled and medieval Bled Castle. The property has recently undergone a complete renovation, including the addition of a new wellness centre with a fitness room, a spa, a sauna and hot tubs. There's a restaurant and a bar with a terrace, while guest rooms come with air-conditioning, a mini bar, satellite TV and free Wi-Fi. 

As well as following walking trails around the lake and to Triglav National Park, visitors can take a pletna (a traditional gondola-style boat), row or even swim to the fairytale island church in the middle of the lake. The Church of the Assumption is known for its 16th-century belfry and "wishing bell" -- according to local legend, if you ring it your wishes will come true.

Subject to availability. Based on two sharing. 2.5% charge applies to payments made by credit card. No fee for debit cards.
