The village of Straža is situated four kilometers from Cerkno, a town best known for its traditional Mardi Gras event called “Laufarija” after its unique masqueraders.
At this tourist farm that joined the European “Houses with Tradition” network in 2001 you will be offered homemade dried meat products and vegetables from their own garden, and the hostess will cook simple old farm dishes for you. Her štruklji filled with homemade cottage cheese or walnuts are most delicious, and the famous idrijski žlikrofi is also on the menu.
Near the farm you can visit the Franja Partisan Hospital, climb the nearby hills, borrow bicycles, or swim in the large swimming pool beside the house. Many fishermen enjoy fishing in the Idrijca River. If you wish, you can drive to nearby Cerkno or to Idrija where there is a museum and numerous other points of interest.
Along with the 500-year-old renovated farmhouse, there is a new building with rooms and apartments for guests.

At the confluence of the Cerknica and Idrijca rivers you can find the Želinc Tourist farm. It stretches over a ravine, away from the road noise, but still easy to access. Here you can rent bicycles, hike the nearby hills like Porezen (1630 m) and Blegoš (1562 m) or trek the surrounding plateaus, which are very convenient for daytrips. Numerous fishermen enjoy fishing in the Idrijca river and its nature, which is magically relaxing. In hot summer weather you can swim in our outdoor pool, read your favourite book in a cool shade, or play with your youngest in our meadows. In the winter months you can enjoy skiing at SC Cerkno. To make you winter vacation even more pleasant we built a smaller wellness resort. Evening time saunas or massage pools are especially pleasant after a day of skiing. The Želinc Tourist farm is also a member of Houses of Tradition, which are distinguished by homeliness, tradition and a recognisable character throughout the entire infrastructure.
