Villa Bella Vista translated to English means the villa with a beautiful view. Yes, the Villa Bella Vista does have a magnificent view of the Lake Bled and the beautiful island with a church on it. The lake and the church are symbols of Slovenia.
Villa Bella Vista is one hundred and five years old. In the past few years, the villa was completely renovated observing the New Art Movement that started in the beginning of the 20th century. The original fascade, the doors , the stairs, and the light fixtures are a perfect example of how a building looked a hundred years ago. The villa was formerly named "Vila Burja."
Tomaz and Maria Fischinger are the new owners of Villa Bella Vista. They are retired teachers. The Fischingers live in the Villa for about five to six months out of the year. They rent out rooms and apartments during the vacation season.
