Our guests' testimonials
What guests say about us
My favourite holidays are among mountains, green valleys, lakes, waterfalls, pools, forests and everything connected with untouched nature. I found accommodation at Apartments Pretner and received a truly warm welcome when I arrived. The apartments lie in the heart of the valley, but they are perfectly away from the direct tourist buzz at the Soča river. After a day enjoying the paradise-like nature, I can come back to a peaceful location to rest and regain my forces. Close to the apartments Lepenca river flows and it is, thanks to its accessibility, peace and beauty, a wonderful introduction to Soča river. The added value of staying with Pretners is undoubtedly their warm homeliness, kindness and helpfulness, which always make me feel genuinely welcome.

Since 2007 we were about four times in one of the Pretner-apartments, in Lepena. The quiet atmosphere in the beautiful surroundings and the warm hospitality of the whole family make us feel at home very much. Walking the paths to the waterfalls of Lepenica gives us always energy. We keep these pictures of the miracles of nature as a treasure in our heart. Staying amidst nice people who have good care for animals and plants is a blessing.

We have stayed at Apartments Pretner every summer for many years. The apartments are located in an amazing location, in the heart of the Alps, in a valley surrounded by mountains. This quiet place is ideal for a holiday in the mountains as there are plenty of beautiful alpine hikes and walks nearby. The apartments are very clean, comfortable and well equipped. They offer everything we need. The Pretners are very nice and hospitable people. There is always a very pleasant and relaxing atmosphere. We are very happy to come back here every year.

We loved the authenticity of the accommodation and the natural beauties nearby. Upon arrival, the hosts surprised us with nice coffee and delicious home-made apple strudel. We stayed one week and had a wonderful time. The apartments has everything we needed. Pretners’ home is a perfect starting point for natural beauties such as Soča canyon and Krn lakes. The family was very friendly at all times and shared with us all the information we needed. We also tasted and bought their delicious savoury sheep ricotta and cheese. We strongly recommend the apartments to all who wish to be close to nature and feel the course of life in this truly wonderful and interesting part of Earth.

Apartments Pretner are clean, quiet and comfortable and, from the outside the views of the mountains were stunning. The Pretners are a warm, helpful and friendly family who, by and large, speak English well, and even some German, and their rooms good value for money. The location is wonderful for walking directly into the mountains and waterfalls, and there is great access to the Trenta Valley. Also, the Pretners keep sheep and produce cheese, and the area is rich in alpine wildlife and flowers.

We are always very much looking forward to our vacation at Apartments Pretner. Staying with you, we get peace, simplicity, kindness, and most importantly the warm homeliness.
And the nature is true heaven. Every year we first think of your family and Lepena when planning our vacation.
So we will come ‘home’ also this year.

When you greeted us smiling and offered us a delicious apple strudel we just couldn’t help ourselves but feel warmth in our hearts. Your offer of accommodation is exactly what my husband and I have been looking for: clean, kind, with all the equipment that a tourist needs.
Also, your prices are more than affordable. You greet and treat your guests daily with a genuine smile on your face.
Our holiday in your apartment was fantastic: your family is truly kind, the apartment is very comfortable, fully equipped and the location is idyllic.
I strongly recommend the apartment and hope to come back some day!
Apartments Pretner are located in the gorgeous Lepene valley, between Bovec and Trenta. The entrance to the valley are the great gorges of the Soča river and the entire valley is as beautiful. The apartments are situated in the middle of the valley, so visitors have plenty of possibilities for wonderful walks and hikes without the need of a car.
In the modern world we are always in a hurry, we are tired and in constant lack of time. When we come to Pretners we always receive a kind welcome with coffee, juice or any other treat, and most importantly kind words. As soon as we arrive, all the burden of the modern world falls of our shoulders and only wonderful nature and kind people are left.
The apartments are fully equipped, always impeccable and clean. The surroundings, with a pearl like the waterfalls on Lepenca river nearby (Šunikov vodni gaj), are simply one of the most beautiful places in the world. It fills us with positive energy and pleasant thoughts.
Our family has been coming to Pretners for almost twenty years and we will continue to do so, because we always feel well and as at home.
We strongly recommend the apartments to everyone who are looking for peace and connection with nature.
