Why stay at a farm?
There are a lot of reasons why holidays at tourist farms are something special. Let us list a few to make your decision easier:
Close contact with nature
Tourist farms are far away from the fast pace of life in cities. As you are embraced by green nature, you can relax your thoughts and enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside. Feel authentic human relationships and a pleasant homely atmosphere. Learn about tradition, the incredible coexistence of humans and nature, and listen to the wisdom of life.
Experiences for the entire family
At farms, none of the family members will be bored. Adults can find a peaceful corner or join your hosts in doing farm chores in meadows, fields, and orchards. In the evening, you can sit down and have a chat with your hosts as you enjoy some homemade specialities. Children will make new animal friends on the farm, play in natural playgrounds, or go on a hunt for adventures that they cannot find in cities.
The fullness of homemade tastes
Your table will be laden with homemade specialities made at the selected farm. Taste homemade meat products and cheeses, satisfy your sweet tooth with homemade honey, and make a toast using freshly squeezed juices, wine, or homemade brandy. Hardworking housewives can also prepare for you some typical farm dishes, such as žganci (mush), various stews and soups, meat dishes, and delicious desserts – from štruklji (curd cheese dumplings) to Potica cake. You will certainly not leave the table hungry.
Actively explore the surrounding area
You will find an abundance of options for activities in nature around tourist farms. Go on a walk or hop on a bicycle and explore a network of paths that lead you across meadows, through forests, and to panoramic peaks. You can also go on a short trip to nature on horseback, but if this is not your skill, in some places they can teach you to ride.
A special kind of bedroom
Why sleep on ordinary beds if you can have a completely different experience? In addition to sleeping in nice rooms and apartments, many tourist farms also allow you to comfortably sleep in hay lofts. If you feel like sleeping under the stars, you can find some designated camping areas near some farms.
