The SpaceIf you are looking for a private mountain cottage for a comfortable stay with your family and friends, to relax and charge your batteries in the midst of the beautiful highlands, just a stroll away from the ski slopes of the Jahorina Olympic Center and nearby trail for Nordic skiing, you have found it... Situated in the very heart of Jahorina, 1328 m above sea level, it is an ideal retreat for those who love skiing and other winter sports, but also for those who only wish to enjoy the idyllic winter landscape and fresh and clean mountain air. A perfect summer refuge from the hustle and bustle of city life for all of you who look for some peace and quiet, as well as an active vacation. As our guests, you will wake up listening to a birdsong and sounds of the forest, have breakfast on a sunny terrace, ride a bicycle, walk along the mountain paths picking on your way medicinal herbs, mushrooms, blueberries and wild strawberries, ending your adventurous day with a glass of wine gathered around a campfire under the night sky. This is your dream cottage on Jahorina.
Two Apartments, One House
Our house consists of two identical apartments linked together by a veranda with an open fireplace in its center. It provides comfortable accommodation for up to eight people at the same time ( the total surface of the house being around 120 square meters ). On its upper level each apartment has bedrooms with a double bed ( the size of which is 140*200 cm ) and two single beds ( 90*200 cm ) that can be put together if need be. Bedside lamps make night reading possible. Parents of small children should know that they can use a small safety door to prevent their kids from wandering downstairs unattended. Bedclothes are provided for and included in the price.
On the lower level of both apartments there is a living room featuring a sofa, a satellite TV and large windows that let in enough daylight offering a romantic view as well. Marble radiator and wood-burning stove with glass doors provide both a pleasant temperature and some pleasurable time by the fire. Right next to the sitting-room is a fully equipt kitchen with a dining table and all the necessary kitchenware. Hallway features a large and spacious wardrobe. From a hallway you enter the bathroom with a toilet, a washbasin, shower cabin, washing machine and an electrical heater which enables you to obtain a desired room temperature very quickly. Towels are not included. Veranda with large windows, connecting the two apartments, is the central part of the house and a place often occupied by our guests who gather around an open hearth. Should you wish to prepare some culinary specialities by the open fire, you have at your disposal a barbecue grill, clay cooking pot and Dutch oven. Instructions for using the fireplace are clearly displayed and guests are expected to follow them closely when lighting a fire. Veranda is coupled with a small kitchen ( sink and stove with electrical oven ), there is a shoe storage for ski boots and a corner to leave your skies in. You are allowed to keep pets in this part of the house.
The Chalet Pahulja is located on a private property covering an area of 1000 square meters; a fence surrounds the property, so that kids can play safely in this large open space. If you are staying with us over summer months, there is a designated spot where you can make a campfire in the evening. There is a large wooden table and benches with enough room for 8 – 10 people to seat on. Right next to the house is a spacious terrace facing south-east where you can spend a whole day sunbathing, in summer and winter alike.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in our beloved chalet. Do not hesitate to contact us in case of questions. We usually respond to requests and enquiries within 24hours. Guest AccessWhen renting with us, guests have access to the whole chalet and outside space. We only rent the full house at a time (not individual rooms) and there will therefore never be space to be shared with someone else. Interaction with GuestsWhile we take pleasure in meeting our guests personally, we do not live permanently on Jahorina and therefore rarely have the chance to meet in person with them, unless we are staying at the chalet right before/after them.
Nevertheless, it is our utmost priority to provide our guests with the information they need and we are both exhaustive and responsive in our communication, whether that is through email or phone. We also share a house manual with our guests prior to their stay, which contains all required information. The NeighborhoodSituated in the very heart of Jahorina, 1328 m above sea level, and 23km away from the cultural and historic heritage of the city of Sarajevo where you can enjoy a variety of religious objects, plenty of shopping site and traditional gastronomy. Getting AroundIn Winter as in Summer, it welcomes many tourists from around the world as it has a lot to offer, from world class skiing and hiking to mountain biking, paragliding or many other outdoor activities. You can relax and enjoy the crisp, fresh mountain air, the intensity of unspoiled nature, a living historical culture, traditional gastronomy and a wide variety of sporting activities. We suggest you visit the official tourism website of Jahorina Olympic Center and Sarajevo to inform yourselves about the countless opportunities, but in short you can be sure to have fun. Other Things to NoteDriving from the main road to our house ( c. 300m ), in winter months usually requires use of tire chains or a four-wheel drive, especially during or immediately after extreme weather conditions. The distance between our lodgings and the Olympic Center is 4 km ( which is a 5 minute drive ). There is a public parking lot where you can find a free spot easily and is free of charge. Bare in mind though, that during ski-season ( especially on weekends ) a lot of traffic might be expected, so we recommend an early rise in the morning :) Ski-lifts are operating every day from 9 am.
