Vila Mila is a completely renovated villa in one of the oldest parts of Bled, Grad – positioned right under Bled Castle. Vila Mila is a house with a rich history. The first information about it can be found already in Franciscan land register from 1827, which noted a household name Kaischouz.  During the 20th century, the house was known under the name Kajževina, owned by family Čop that kept the ownership of the house until 1980 when they moved out of Bled and sold the house to the group of Slovenian companies that started to use the house as a holiday home for their employees. After some ownership rotations, the building was in 2007 bought by a family from Bled that had long-term plans with renovating the property and bringing back the dominant look and position to the mighty building as it once had.

After a long coordination of plans, all licenses for the complete renovation were ready at the end of 2011. Construction works began in summer of 2013 and at the beginning of 2015 villa was ready to accept first guests. By renaming the villa after the youngest family member, Mila, the family added a personal note to the house and started a new chapter in villa's history.

Believing that only sustainable tourism has a positive impact on the small town of Bled, the lake and the local community, the directions towards environmentally friendly construction solutions and the use of environmentally friendly products was a natural way of positioning Vila Mila as an accommodation wishing to attract guests with high ecological standards. Being the first one small accommodation in Bled with the Green Key certificate, Vila Mila strongly supports the town of Bled in its efforts towards a zero waste society and truly green destination.  

Vila Mila has a touch of the past and at the same time cutting-edge technology for a comfortable stay of guests in seven 1-bedroom apartments, with a beautiful garden and a view of the St. Martin's church and the Lake of Bled.
