FARM STAYS IN SLOVENIA
Listen to the whispering of the wind, stirring secret desires. See the treasures of untouched nature. Taste the variety of life at every step. Feel the beauty of limitless exploration, the exploration of love. Touch your essence. Feel. Feel Slovenia with all your senses. Experiences that follow the promptings of the heart.
Taste the countryside The diversity offered by the Slovenian countryside: use it to escape from your everyday routine. Whether you choose a farm holiday or a wander through the rural environment, discovering the beauties of nature. This contact with genuine folk culture and unspoilt nature will touch your heart. You will relax and start to feel yourself again.
Dear tourist farm guests, We are happy to present our new tourist farm catalogue, in which you will find ideas and hints for visiting tourist farms across Slovenia. A new feature of this year's catalogue is a separate presentation of 29 specialized tourist farms and their offer. The catalogue allows you to book your holiday on a chosen tourist farm yourself and, by offering detailed descriptions of excursion farms, wine cellars and Karst »osmice«, it helps you to plan your excursions, special occasions and organize business encounters. A visit to the Slovenian countryside is a truly unique experience, because the moment you cross the threshold of a rustic home, you become part of a story that you also, willingly or not, help create. In a close contact with
nature, with country folks and their culture, wisdom, customs and traditions, you can relax and get in touch with your inner self again. We cordially invite you to visit the Slovenian countryside, where everyday life still resists the merciless hustle and bustle of urban environments and time passes more slowly.
Venčeslav Tušar, President of the Slovenian Tourist Farm Association
FEEL THE LIFE.
Taste the stunning diversity.
Feel harmony with nature
Allow yourself to escape from your everyday routine and surrender to the embrace of green nature. The smell of freshly mown grass, the touch of crystal-clear water, the taste of a freshly picked apple and a view of the velvet-green meadow on the next hill: all this will put you in tune with the energy of luxuriant nature. Time goes slower in the Slovenian countryside. A visit to one of Slovenia’s over four hundred open farms can be the starting-point for a walk in the untouched natural surroundings of the Triglav National Park, white-water rafting on the Soča, an exploration of the rocky Karst beneath the Mediterranean sun, a bicycle tour of the byways of Štajerska and Koroška, a stirring river-ferry ride along the Mura in Prekmurje, or a wander through the forests of Dolenjska. Reach out and touch the diversity of green experiences.
Slovenia is a small country full of diverse experiences. The Slovenian countryside is where you can still hear genuine Slovene dialects, see traditional architecture and enjoy old rural customs. In the traditional rural environment you can still find the quality of a full life and feel the importance of traditional values. Whether the occasion is a local holiday or simply everyday tasks about the farm, you will relish the positive energy of open-hearted people, sing old Slovene songs and laugh along with the healthy rustic humour. Sincere, warm-hearted people will serve you the finest produce of their gardens and fields, their cellars, smokehouses, storerooms and kitchens. With a smile of welcome they will accept you among themselves and share with you a part of their daily existence. Enjoy the slower pace of life, abandon yourself to the harmony of the co-existence of man and nature, and feel the genuineness of the Slovenian countryside.
7 The coastal area and the Karst are covered with olive trees and vines, but beneath the surface are countless karst caves, one of the most beautiful facets of our planet. Between the mountains of the Gorenjska region are deep gorges with crystal-clear water, and the characteristics of the lan-
dscape mean that the traditions of mountaineering and Alpine dairy farming are alive and well here. Dolenjska is the land of Cviček wine, thermal springs and extensive forests and the region is also famous for its traditional woodenware. Štajerska is best known for its wide range of fine wines
and as a region that offers endless opportunities for recreation. Koroška, the cradle of the Slovene nation, also offers a wealth of opportunities for mountaineering and hiking. The river Mura, with its tradition of floating mills and lumber rafts, is a central element of the Prekmurje region.
HOT FACTS: • 850 farm stays • 37% of Slovenia is a protected area- NATURA 2000 • 2.104 farms involved in organic farming • 140.00 bee colonies • 80-90 million litres of wine produced • 8.936 hectares of orchards • 400 tonnes of olive oil produced in 1,600 hectares of olive groves • 170 traditional and characteristic dishes • 7.000 kilometres of marked mountain paths
Feel the variety of traditional flavours No rural festivity – or ordinary day for that matter – is complete without locally produced, home-made food and drink. Some of the dishes you will encounter most frequently on Slovenia’s farms include traditional cabbage, bean and potato dishes. Spoil yourself with a variety of sweet and savoury strudels and sample various types of homemade bread. In the Karst you can also try the local Karst ham. And every farm will offer its own version of potica, a cake filled with walnuts, poppy seeds, raisins, cream cheese, herbs or even crackling. This wealth of enticing aromas and flavours is complemented by the white wines of the Štajerska region, Cviček from Dolenjska or Teran from the Karst. And to finish with, a drop of homemade fruit brandy or delicious mead. Feel the value of nature’s gifts and enjoy the genuine flavours of home-made food and drink.
Feel the life of the countryside Wake up to the sound of cowbells and birdsong and the smell of freshly-baked bread. Start the day actively at daybreak and try your hand at mowing grass, milking cows and other chores in the cowshed or barn, or join the locals at work in the fields. Then take a well-earned rest in the pleasant shade of a nearby hayrack. You can vary your days in the country with horse riding or cycling along forest trails, and in the evening you can gather round the stove in the farmhouse and join in with traditional rural games. On special occasions you can get a taste of rural festivities. Join the friendly locals at grape harvest or at the time of the pig slaughter and learn old folk dances. Prepare yourself for a variety of experiences of the countryside, from the stone courtyards of the dry Karst, to the wooden buildings of the Alpine dairy farms in Gorenjska, vineyard cottages in Dolenjska or the mudplastered, straw-thatched little houses of Prekmurje and Štajerska.

Nature and man â€“ hand in hand
An increasing number of Slovenian tourist farms are celebrating twenty (or more) years since opening their doors to the guests for the first time. Timidly at first, and more and more boldly later on, they have laid the foundations for making farm holidays one of the most popular leisure options in places where people could not make a living on farming alone.
Far from crowds and everyday rush, surrounded by peace and greenery, you will find tourist farms; the best ones are in places where there are no more asphalt roads, traffic lights, street lighting or billboards. These are also the places where man and nature are in closest contact.
Tourist farms are the place where nature and man come in closest contact. What else could you possibly want?
Tourist farms are the home of friendly hosts who live and work in harmony with nature and use their common sense in everything they do. They are aware of the fact that they will reap just what they sow; in other words, they will have guests if they take good care of them. Rooms they offer are comfortable and generally equipped with everything modern people need in order not to feel cut off from the rest of the world. Farm animals are real and you cannot turn them off or silence them. Far from hectic urban life the difference betwen day and night is more pronounced: days are brighter and nights are truly dark. In the coolness of the morning you can catch the sunrise and watch the sunset in the evening. You can go running for a mile or two in the fresh morning air and then enjoy sitting down to a richly laden table. Food on the farms is mostly home grown: vegetables come fresh from the fields, the garden or the pantry, meat comes from the barn, and drinks come from the vineyard or the orchard. The quality of the food is high and its variety depends on the season. Meals are enjoyed slowly and there is plenty of time to say all the things that we never have enough time to say on other days. On a tourist farm youâ€™ll learn the true meaning of free time: there is
no rush and no competitiveness, no pressure to achieve a goal at any cost. You can relax in the shade of a tree in the middle of a meadow and read a book or enjoy a glass of wine in peace and quiet. Your hosts can also take you to the barn, show you the work that is done in the vineyards, in the meadows or in the wine cellar. Children can see for themseves where milk comes from, how cheese is made, how to bake bread and where do all the goodies that arrive to the dinner table actually come from. Some tourist farms have specialized in different areas with respect to their target groups: some of them are more children-oriented, others are family-friendly, or they cater to the needs of cylicsts or handicapped guests; there are also wine-
oriented farms that lie in the midst of vineyards and organic farms that specialize in growing organic food. Therefore the choice of a farm on which to spend your vacation is not an easy matter; indeed, there are several hundred of them scattered across Slovenia. They may seem different, but the combination of reasons why to spend a vacation in the countryside has a common denominator: because of a genuine contact with nature. Nature is simple, honest, patient, kind and imbued with common sense. In it you can find all those things that you donâ€™t generally find in your everyday life. In the following pages you can take a look at the specialized offer of 29 tourist farms that have tailored their offer to different target groups of guests.

The Kranjc farm lies at the end of a village situated on a hill beneath the mighty Mount Krn offering wonderful views of the surrounding mountain peaks of the Julian Alps. The farm is also close to one of the most beautiful mountain villages, Drežnica. The rich flora and the gentle musical background created by the multitude of birds provide for an excellent environment for spending quality free-time. At the Pri Arnejčku farm, they have adapted their services to cyclists and hikers. They are, therefore, able to offer advice on the numerous mountain cycling trails leading to the bathing spots on the Nadiža River, the numerous waterfalls, nearby villages or mountain trails. You can rent bicycle and hiking equipment there. The Alpe-Adria Trail and the Trail of Peace in Posočje pass by the farm. You can walk to the mountains, among cows, sheep and goats, or to the Koseška korita chutes where you can rest at bioenergy points surrounded by the silence and stillness of a picturesque forest. There is an open-air museum not far away from the farm featuring the remnants of frontline bunkers from the First World War. You can quickly reach Čedad and Goriška Brda by car or take a car-train to Bled and Bohinj. You can canoe, kayak or raft down the emerald Soča River, while the Posočje region is also a paragliders’ paradise. Guests are offered a diverse buffet breakfast and dinner that are based on healthy food from the garden on the farm and on traditional specialties.

OTGM The village of Čadrg is located in the Triglav national Park at an elevation of 700 metres above sea level. It is embraced by the Tolmin hills and has fewer than thirty inhabitants. The people there are truly in love with this piece of land under the hills that was first cultivated by their ancestors. The Bončin family living on the Pri Lovrču farm with 29 hectares of meadows and pastures pursue organic animal husbandry and make sure that the pastures do not become overgrown. Their principal activity is the production of cow’s milk that is processed at the village cheese dairy into the well-known autochthonous cheese, Tolminc, and albumin cottage cheese. They market their products under the Biodar organic food trademark. Even though animal husbandry and cheese making make for a lot of work, they are happy to take time for tourists who find their way into the village. They have arranged two apartments and will, with prior arrangement, serve their guests a lunch that is characteristic of the Tolmin hills. They also sell seasonal vegetables, walnuts and pear brandy. The hosts will never say no to an offer of help with the farm work. They recommend that guests go see Mount Razor, the source of the Tolminka River and the Tolmin chutes, ascend Mount Javorca, visit Kobarid and take to the mountain cycling trails.

TG Mirela and Adrijana Peresin see their tourist farm that lies at the western-most part of Brda, right next to the border with Italy, which specialises in healthy living, as a farm where guests can experience a clean environment and healthy food produced at home. The farm is called Breg. They like to say: “We pick it and we cook it!” And because it is also healthy to exercise, the farm is especially friendly to cyclists. They rent bikes, have a bike storage facility, have a business relationship with a bike repair shop and are able to provide advice on the choice of cycling routes – both on the Slovenian and the Italian side of Brda, on the plains and on the hills. “Some take a ride to Čedad for a cup of coffee, while others climb Mount Matajur and Mount Korada.” The hosts cook in the kitchen in a typical farmhouse with a smaller room on the ground floor featuring a fireplace and a large room with a glazed terrace on the upper floor that boasts a view over the landscape of Goriška Brda. The dishes they prepare are based on old recipes typical of Goriška Brda and the Friuli region and characterised by many herbs. Their specialty is barley dishes with vegetables, seasonal minestrone soups, frtalja omelettes, the Friuli friko, grandma’s toč with prosciutto and polenta, seasonal cherry, chestnut and pumpkin dishes. In the summer of 2013, they started using the lavender growing in their own field for many different applications.

TGPKIQ You will find the tourist farm of the Valentinčič family in Podsabotin, the first village in Goriška Brda. It is surrounded by vineyards that grow proudly on the fertile soil of Goriška Brda where the great grandfather Doro planted the first vines 47 years ago, all of which means that this farm is truly worth visiting. The Valentinčič family is most proud of their quality wine, into which they invest a lot of tender loving care and knowledge. You are sure to enjoy the tastings of many varieties of wine ranging from the autochthonous Briška Rebula (Ribolla) to the usual French varieties. They produce mostly fresh white wines: Briška Rebula (Ribolla), Sauvignon vert, Pinot gris, Chardonnay, Malvasia. Their red varieties include Pinot noire and Merlot. The Valentinčič family is famous for their excellent culinary masterpieces: frtalja omelettes made with herbs freshly picked from the home garden, homemade jam, fruit juices and cold cuts. You can stay at the tourist farm throughout the year and enjoy the following activities: bungee jumping from the Solkan Bridge, hikes to Sabotin and Sveta Gora, football, basketball and volleyball (Kojsko, 6 km), fishing in the Soča River (3 km), cycling, jumping into the Adriatic Sea, which is only 30 kilometres away, or into the pool on the farm. In winter, you can take to the ski slopes on Mount Kanin or in Cerkno. The people in Goriška Brda (Brici) are very proud of the cultural heritage of their milieu, so you should not neglect visiting Šmartno with a defensive wall and Sveta Gora with a WWI museum or seeing the Dobrovo Castle, etc.

TESKNGLOQM Zakojca lies on the edge of the Primorska region (Slovenian littoral), on the border of the Tolmin and Cerkljansko regions, high above Baška grapa, on the hillside of the domed Mount Kojca. The farm of the Tušar family is situated at the beginning of the village. The farm is better known by the name Pri Flandru. The farm is sustainably run, which is why there is always plenty of homemade food such as juices, vegetables, potatoes and meat products like prosciutto, želodec salami, other salamis, zaseka spread, homemade bread and other delicacies from Marija’s kitchen. In addition to seeing other animals on the farm, children can ride horses and take a ride in a carriage. Along with learning horseback riding skills and cross country riding, guests can go on riding tours in the nearby surroundings lasting several days, whereby there are six horses at most available for any single tour. In the summer, they can cycle, ascend Mount Kojca (1303 m), Mount Porezen (1632 m), Črna prst and Rodica or play on the playground with their children. The surroundings abound in natural and cultural attractions. You can visit the Divje Babe archaeological site, the museum in Kobarid, the Franja Partisan hospital, the mercury mine in Idrija and many other natural and cultural attractions. You can also drive to the rivers Idrijca or Bača for some fishing or swimming. There are certainly many more interesting activities to be enjoyed at the farm as well.

Because the Cerkljansko region is not Prekmurje, the Želinč family often have cyclists come to their establishment who see a true challenge in riding their bikes up hill and down dale. They usually bring their own bicycles with them, but they can also rent them at the tourist farm (they can also rent a helmet, a child bike seat or a repair set). They further receive a practical map with six cycling routes indicated. Those who decide on tackling the more challenging routes and thus overcoming greater elevation differences are rewarded by unforgettable vistas, which does not, however, mean that the less challenging route along the Idrijca River towards Idrija is any less picturesque. The river is very popular with fishermen, while the pool next to the house is more suitable for swimming. The farm lies along the Idrija–Tolmin main road, at the confluence of the rivers of Cerknica and Idrijca. It is a member of the European network of houses with tradition. In addition to homemade food, which always includes the characteristic Idrija žlikrofi, they also offer healing therapy with bee air and other apiary products. Trails lead from the farm to the mountains of Porezen and Blegoš, to Tolminsko and Mount Razor. If you prefer winter activities, you will find that the Cerkno ski centre is very close by.

The Karst borjač courtyards and homesteads are protected against the bora wind by tall walls. One such homestead is the renovated PetelinDurcik farm located on the edge of the Pliskovica village, right next to the western national border and along the Karst tourist and wine road. It is surrounded by vineyards that produce Teran, a characteristic Karst wine. This ruby-red wine has been bringing joy and immeasurable pride to the people of Karst for ages. As a viticultural farm included in the programme for integrated cultivation of grapes and production of wine, it organises wine tastings for its guests, which include Teran, as well as Malvasia, Vitouska (Vitovska grganja) and Teran liqueur; the mentioned beverages can also be purchased at the farm. Your Karst experience will not be complete without the characteristic Karst cuisine and its delicacies: prosciutto, štruklji rolled dumplings, jota soup, and gnocchi. The hosts are true connoisseurs of tradition and customs, which is why they love presenting their locality to their guests, whom they take on a tour of the Pliska study trail. In order to show their guests the characteristics of the Karstic world, they recommend visiting the Škocjan Caves and the Vilenica Cave, which is considered to be the first Slovenian tourist cave. Guests can rent bicycles at the farm and ride to Štanjel, Komen, Trstelj or Tomaj, where the poet Srečko Kosovel was born.

If you don’t have a problem getting up early in the morning, you will get the confirmation that you are truly in the heart of nature, in the midst of meadows along the Nanoščica stream and at the foot of Mount Nanos: you can observe deer while they graze in the morning from the balcony of your room at the Hudičevec establishment. The farm also breeds horses, cows, sheep and donkeys, so it is understandable that when conversation turns to the culinary menu, they will first highlight their dishes made with organically produced meat from the animals bred at home. They also prepare several types of soups, štruklji rolled dumplings with various fillings, numerous vegetable dishes and a multitude of desserts (potica cakes, štruklji rolled dumplings, strudels, etc.). Guests will find the smell and flavour of the bread baked in the wood-fired bread oven to be especially enticing. You will never be bored at this farm. The ten children are a guarantee that the farm is always a lively place. They also have a Finnish sauna and a fitness studio, and offer table tennis and table football (fussball). The outdoor areas are lit and have swings, slides and a sandbox for children, a picnic area, a bowling alley, a grassed football field, a beach volleyball court and a mini basketball court. You can also rent bicycles or see the rich Karst underground (Postojna Cave, Škocjan Caves) nearby, as well as the close by Lipica Stud Farm. Hikers can choose between ascending the mountains of Nanos, Vremščica, Slavnik or Snežnik.

Because the farm is completely isolated and situated in the middle of meadows, it is highly suitable for families or groups of children accompanied by their teachers. They prepare three- to six-day long programmes for children that will leave them no time for swinging on the swings or playing in the sandbox, as they will be occupied with nature and animals all day long. They bake buns with the lady of the house, help with the milking in the cowshed, ride on a horse drawn carriage, walk along the study trail and help care for the cows, horses, pigs, sheep, the donkey, ducks, chickens and cats. In winter, the hosts arrange a sled run for them, and the ski slopes on Stari vrh and Cerkno are also not far away. The food there is homemade as the farm, boasting an organic farming certificate, cultivates all their own vegetables and produces milk and milk products (sour milk, cottage cheese, butter), meat and dried meat products (sausages, braciola), while the children always prefer macaroni, crepes and semolina pudding.

TUENFAO The Pri Lazarju tourist farm is situated on a hill with mounted binoculars that will let you see the capital and the mountain chain of the Kamnik and Savinja Alps, the Karavanke Mountain Range and the Julian Alps. “You can see whether the ski slopes on Krvavec are crowded,” jested the master of the house, while we enjoyed the vistas with snow falling all around us. Children who come to the farm with their parents quickly send their parents home after becoming masters of the ram, sheep and dog. The Bizjan family will teach them about nature, healthy diet, ecology and life on the farm. School groups learn about the occupation of a farmer, the forest and orchard, and take a journey through history and eco farming. The farm is, therefore, friendly to both accompanied and unaccompanied children. Visitors are offered many delicacies, some of which include ox meat, štruklji rolled dumplings, desserts and many more. They are willing to share the secrets behind their culinary specialties and take homemade brandy enthusiasts on a “journey” of discovery of these homemade products. If guests are willing to help in the farm chores, the host will be happy to delegate some to them.

TEK G Q M W Urša and Miha managed to free up an estate from the stubborn embrace of wilderness. This yielded the name of the estate, Trnulja (blackthorn). They say that these thorns watched and saved this beautiful estate for them. Today, this is an organic farm involved in the cultivation of oleaginous plants and cereals and their processing into organic oils, spreads, regular and wholemeal flour. It is also home to numerous animals; horses, goats, donkeys, ducks, chickens, cats and a dog. Today, this is also an organic, excursion, tourist farm offering eco apartments (they are entirely built with health-friendly materials). The farm has a sales area where they offer organic foodstuffs from their own estate and nearby farms and where they prepare organic lunches on Sundays between 12 noon and 6 PM, while they serve cold cuts on Saturday between 8 AM and 12 noon. The estate is located in Črna vas on the Ljubljansko barje (Ljubljana Marshes), which is a mere seven kilometres from the centre of the capital. The Marshes are an inspiration with their flora, fauna and landscape peculiarities; they are an ideal destination for cycling enthusiasts who may take a stop at the spiritual centre, the church of Sv. Mihael that was built according to the creative design of the famous Slovenian architect, Plečnik.

The Žibovt organic tourist farm awaits you at the beginning of the Solčava panoramic road or just three kilometres from the Pavličevo sedlo border crossing if you drive through the village of Preddvor and Jezersko or via Austria. At the entrance to Žibovče, there is a stream on the right-hand side that runs into the pond and a patch of wetland on the farm with many endangered plant species. The homestead lies on a plain and is surrounded by meadows and forests. The mighty old pear tree that stands in the middle of the courtyard, along with the linden trees, provide shade in the summer. Homemade cheeses of all types, buckwheat žganci, bread, savinjski želodec salami and other homemade meat products, fruit juices, dried fruit and mountain tea are a must that will make your meals there a delight. Their cuisine is seasonal and based on tradition. A part of this tradition is the bees, which have been diligently providing honey for a number of generations as well as pollinating the plants and maintaining the biodiversity of the area. If you decide to stay here for several days, you can spend your time hiking, cycling or walking. The area along the panoramic road where the Žibovt farm is located is known for the healing properties of the iron-saturated mineral water (calcium, magnesium, hydrogen carbonate rich mineral water), with which you can quench your thirst along the way. You will feel the warmth of mountain wood every step of the way: beside the wood-fired bread oven, while playing the wooden board games (made at the farm), on the playground, etc.

TNGOQM R Vilma Topolšek, the driving force behind the Urška tourist farm, was deeply touched by the words of her ten year old daughter who was disabled (“You have everything, father likes it, but he has nowhere to sleep.”); as early as in 1998, they constructed an apartment for disabled persons according to international standards when they were building the house. Many disabled persons have spent their holidays at the farm, and there were even more families with children who visited the farm. Children can enjoy the mini zoo, sandbox, swings and the “magical” house where they can go during bad weather and where they are accompanied and led by the grandchildren from the farm. The parents will feel pampered at the House of Wellbeing with a Finnish and Turkish sauna, Jacuzzi, massage showers, a hay bunk and a room for resting. Just as the offer on the farm and in its surroundings is diverse (Terme Zreče spa, Rogla ski slopes), so is the offer from the kitchen. Vilma, who stirs the pots with the golden Vikend spoon, prepares delicacies that would have disappeared into oblivion a long time ago had it not been for her. Tone adds to this his homemade white and red wines, while their daughter Urška, after whom the farm was named, is a sommelier who recommends food and wine combinations.

They have a merry company of “living” toys for them: cows, chickens, sheep, Pepca the Vietnamese pig, Marsi the pony, kittens, Muri the dog and rabbits, while the most beautiful couple are Jaka the drake and Mojca the duck who live in the fairytale house next to the pond. Children can have fun on the roller coaster, swing, slide, climbing equipment or the football field. They like it even more when they can help bake bread or cook jam, gather herbs, press apples into juice, and harvest produce from the field when they come to the farm at the right time of year. They can sleep in the hay barn and listen to the sounds of nature. Mother Angelca and her successor Barbara like to create in the kitchen. You should try the homemade bread with liver pâté or pumpkin spread, cold cuts made from homemade meat products, pork and sausages, delicious desserts, etc. After you have eaten well (or even before that), you can go out and see the local attractions: the church of Sv. križ, Potnikova smreka (Potnik’s Spruce), Vešner Homestead with an open-hearth kitchen, the Fram oil mill, the Rače Castle, the Požeg Landscape Park, the botanical gardens, the lake of Črno jezero, the Šumik and Skalca waterfalls and others.

TUNGO The name of the Čebelji gradič (bee castle) organic farm already tells us that this is home to experts in apiculture and honey products. In the heart of the Goričko Landscape Park, they have decided to pursue the organic method of beekeeping – they know that the bees can only make quality honey from unpolluted nectar, which can in turn only be found in unspoilt nature. By prior arrangement, they will arrange for you an experiential visit where they will open up a hive and present the life of a bee family. They will prepare a tasting of three kinds of organic honey. You can view an ethnological collection and a 100-yearold beehive; when the visit is organised for a group of children, they can make candles made of pure beeswax, play with bunnies and ride Poldi the pony under supervision. They can also play on the slide, in the sandbox, on the swings and climbing equipment and play basketball, football, table tennis, badminton and darts. Guests can stay at three modernly furnished apartments, from which they can take trips to, for example, Gornja Radgona, Radenci, Moravci as well as the neighbouring Austria or Hungary. Goričko is a paradise for cyclists; the farm also offers bike rental. Prior to your departure from the farm, you can fill your bags to the brim with bee treats.

They also market their preserved vegetables successfully in organic stores. Meat products (sausages, salamis, meat dipped in a minced lard and pork mixture (tünka)), dairy products, bread from the wood-fired bread oven and kvasenica (sour cream and cottage cheese yeast cake), postržjača (cake filled with minced lard, garlic and cheese) and other pastries baked in the oven (to order) are also all homemade.

The hosts always strive to show children the advantages of living in the countryside. Guests can take part in various farm chores that they learn to perform in courses organised at the farm (hammering of a scythe, moving with a scythe in the traditional way, bread baking, etc.).

Her cuisine takes its cues from traditional Slovenian cuisine and highlights the local culinary specialties and seasonal dishes. In the spring, plates are laden with dandelion and wild garlic dishes, while in the summer guests can enjoy fresh vegetables from the garden accompanied by meat produced at the farm or trout. Vegetarians will enjoy homemade cheeses and buckwheat štruklji (rolled dumplings), žganci and the like. They are especially happy to see families with children come to the farm, as the little ones can play on the playground or help feed the many farm animals.

The Ozmec farm stands on the slopes of Slovenske Gorice in the heart of Prlekija. What the people of Prlekija allow themselves they offer with pleasure to their guests goes the saying, and the Ozmec farm is no exception. The whole year round they prepare delicious Prlekija dishes to order, and you can get homemade cold cuts, pork preserved in lard, bread, and wine from own vineyard at any time. When they have more guests–there is seating for 80-120 diners–they offer sauerkraut with roast sausage or blood sausage, other meat dishes, and for dessert, pogača and postržjača. On the farm, you can help tend the vines in spring and harvest grapes in autumn and eat with the family when the work is done. Local sights worth visiting include the Sv. Trojica (Holy Trinity) church from 1219, the viewing tower in Gomila, the castle in Velika Nedelja, and the wine cellars of Ormož and Jeruzalem, and, of course, a trip to Ptuj is a must weit. The Sv. Tomaž ski area is only three kilometers from the farm, and the thermal pools of the Ptuj, Banovci, and Bioterme Mala Nedelja spas are not far away.

The sparkling wine cellar of the Istenič family is located in Stara vasa in Bizeljsko, right next to the Croatian border. It lies in an idyllic location surrounded by hills, where many vineyards bathe in the Sun. The Istenič family was the first private producer of sparkling wine during the time of the former Yugoslavia and was already at that time making wine according to the classical method. Later, they developed this activity into a successful form of wine tourism, which they still pursue and nurture to this day. They devote a lot of attention to the culture of drinking sparkling wine, which they present to guests in words and in tastings. They serve their guests excellent wines with homemade cold cuts and will, by prior arrangement, even prepare warm dishes according to the Bizeljsko region’s culinary tradition. With the help of top level culinary experts, the family has linked the sparkling wines and wines with gastronomy, which is why their proprietary balsamic vinegar is a sort of logical continuation of the search and simultaneously the establishment of a comprehensive chain of products that round off their viticultural and tourist products. Guests can stay at the Istenič family farm in six deluxe rooms. They can take to Bizeljsko Castle, the Slomšek Museum or the thermal spas of Terme Čatež, Rogaška Slatina or Terme Olimia by bicycle, on foot or by car.

The farm that pursues traditional agricultural guidelines is located in the village of Podjelje, on the southern, sunny side of the Pokljuka Plateau, which offers beautiful vistas over Bohinj. Guests can stay at multi-bed rooms and apartments, and share common-use facilities. The farm boasts the organic farming certificate guaranteeing that the food is always tasty and healthy. The kitchen will often give off wonderful smells of homemade sausages, zaseka spread, lamb meat, cottage cheese štruklji rolled dumplings, goat meat and the like. A visit to the farm will be a memorable experience for all who appreciate peace and quiet of nature and walks through the woods. In both summer and winter, you can visit Bohinj, which is always an impressive sight thanks to its glacial lake. A visit to Mount Vogel is also interesting in all seasons, but is especially nice in winter when it offers fun-filled activities on skis. Individuals and families with children, who are always most welcome at the Gorjup’s, will undoubtedly enjoy walks to the Savica waterfall or the ascent to the nearby Mount Voja with channels of the Mostnica River. All those in love with horses and riding are warmly invited to the nearby Mrcina ranch. Cycling enthusiasts can choose among cycling paths of various difficulty levels. The Gorjup couple always likes to invite their guests to take part in farm chores. Guests can go canyoning in the lower parts of the valley in the vicinity of the farm.

This ecological tourist farm offers accommodation in a facility with 4 apartments and one additional room. The farm prides itself on its organic food and juices. A vegetable garden is right next to the house and guests are invited to pick seasonal fruit and vegetables themselves. Over the years the owners have mastered the art of turning goat milk into delicious cheese, cottage cheese and yogurt. Have you ever milked a goat? If you visit the farm, we’ll be glad to show you how it’s done! Vast meadows invite you for a stroll, and you can also visit the mountain pastures that will reveal some spectacular views over the surrounding landscape. The nearby river Sava attracts swimmers as well as fishermen who can also try their luck in lakes Bled and Bohinj. In the village there is a climbing rock that will satisfy the needs of experienced climbers. The farm offers bike rental and in winter they invite their guests on cross-county skiing tracks. There is also a wellness corner on the farm where you can warm your soul and regenerate your body enjoying a cup of homemade herbal tea. The hosts have also prepared some nostalgic experiences for their guests. One of them is relaxing on a warm farmhouse stove when it’s cold outside and snowflakes are slowly, yet persistently, covering meadows, fields any mountains with their white softness…
