Homemade and green

In Slovenia, tourism is developed in a responsible and sustainable way.  Under the auspices of the Green Scheme of Slovenian Tourism, we implement green policies and propose green experiences.  Over one hundred Slovenian destinations and tourism providers have already been awarded the Slovenia Green Label, which reflects their endeavours to positively impact the natural environment and the local community.  Among them, there are many farm stays that will delight you with delicious produce from their own gardens, fields, orchards and vineyards, and impress you with beautiful countryside and their green approach.  A healthy rural lifestyle is truly the best anti-stress therapy.  Find your perfect spot in the peaceful Slovenian countryside and enjoy a holiday that is friendly both to nature and to the local community.   

Želinc Farm Stay

The old farmhouse situated at the junction of three green valleys, by the Idrijca river, offers tasty wholesome and fresh homemade food we used to know in days gone by. The heart of the farm is the kitchen, always full of the delicious aromas of local seasonal dishes.  By the main building there is a stable and a characteristic Slovenian hayrack, where hay is hung up to dry. And amidst the orchard of old apple varieties, a colourful beehive found its home.  Traditionally furnished rooms conjure up an authentic rural atmosphere and offer beautiful views of the Cerkno Hills.
