Peskovci is a little village in the municipality of Gornji Petrovci in the far north-east of Slovenia, inside the Goričko Nature Park. Together with the village of Gornji Petrovci it forms the local administrative community of Gornji Petrovci. The village has a fire station, a cemetery with a chapel, and the Kompas hunting and breeding centre, founded in 1964, since which time it has been promoting hunting tourism and breeding pheasants and partridges. The village has a volunteer fire brigade and is also home to Oldteimer Abraham, a very active club for devotees of vintage farm machinery and other vehicles, based at Peskovci 38. The club's president Drago Abraham maintains a small exhibition of vintage machinery in his yard, next to the national highway. Peskovci is also the home of the Lutra otter conservation centre. Otters have been spotted in the stream flowing through the village, known as Peskovski Potok.
