We are excited about the fact that one of the UK's leading media outlets, The Guardian, has included four Slovenian tourist farms onto the list of 20 great agriturismos and farm stays in Europe.
In a recently published online article, The Guardian has included four Slovenian tourist farms onto the list of 20 great agriturismos and farm stays in Europe. The Pri Plajerju farm, which is located in Trenta Valley, in Triglav National Park, was chosen for the best. According to The Guardian “there’s something pure and timeless about Slovenia and this farm. It has self-catering apartments, but we sleep in the hayloft – it’s incredibly good value.”
Additionally, 3 other Slovenian farms have made it to the list:
- Povšin (Sela pri Bledu)
"The walk down to Lake Bled was through the fields with a view of the surrounding hills. The breakfast consisted of produce from the farm and was well worth it." The Guardian
- Francinovi (Avber pri Sežani)
“Family-run Francinovi is a gem in the Slovenian tourist-farm tradition. It’s in Avber, a hilltop village in Kras, or the Karst area, a limestone plateau close to Trieste.” The Guardian
- Lešnik (Golavobuka pri Šmartnem pri Slovenj Gradcu)
“Tourist farm Lešnik is one of the finest farmstays in Slovenia. All its food is homemade from its own produce (even the flour).” The Guardian
This is a great success for Slovenia and a proof that our tourist farms are among the best. They are scattered throughout Slovenia and boast not only breathtaking locations, but also healthy homemade food made from produce grown on the very farms. Farms are an ideal base for cycling and hiking trips or even for exploring the surrounding area on horseback. Many are also included into the Green Scheme of the Slovenian Tourism.
