  • Description


    We are a family run tourist farm in western part of Slovenia. In the summer time our place is busy all the time. Most of work we do by ourselves, so sometimes we run out of time to do some work in the garden or animals.

    At the moment we have 6 cows, some chickens, geese, 2 dogs and 2 cats. We like to grow as much food on our gardens as possible, so there is always a lot of work there. We also have lots of grass around the property, which needs to be cut, we have outdoor swimming pool, which needs some maintenance.

    We also try our best that the look of our property is interesting for our guests, so there is always something to improve around and in the house.

    We also have two small children an sometimes it would be really convenient that there would be a pair of eyes to look after them, especially our older son, who is 19 months.

    Our farm is located near the river Idrijca, which is nice for a day swimming or just relaxing. There is lots of possibilities for hiking or cycling (we can rent you a bike). We can give you some advise to do some daily trips around Slovenia. We are located cca. one hour drive to Ljubljana, one hour drive to Postojna (famous caves), 1,5 hour to Slovenian coast, or just some closer local interesting spots.
