On a farm, every season has its own charm.

In winter when nature is sleeping, guests spend the days actively on the snow and in the evening squeeze together round the traditional ceramic heating stove(I love these heatings!!) for relaxation and conversation.

In spring they marvel at the awakening of nature and in summer's heat they seek shade in the shelter of the forests, cool off in the rivers or the swimming pools of thermal Spas, help harvest wheat and hay, pick hops (for the PIVO = BEER).....

When late fall arrives, they are again out in nature on day trips, walking or cycling. Every season is filled with activities.

Tourist farms encourage sports in the countryside - from skiing, sledding and skating to hiking, riding, cycling, fishing, family games and more - to make your goliday in nature even more beautiful.

Farmers' wives know what is good!
Only the healthiest and freshest farm products go into the pots and pans where they prepare delicacies of traditional Slovene cooking: cornand buckwheat zganci, wheat and buckwheat kasa, sour soup, jota, rocet, bogras, njoki and much more such as the special sweet cake: gibanica.

And let's not forget the excellent wines, apple cider and brandies.

Farm women also know the value of a good bed: sleeping at a farm is sleeping soundly all night and waking up without a headache...

Holidays at a farm are simply different holidays......
