Farm stays in Slovenia that we think are the best and worth staying at

Vacation usually means relaxation, time for yourself, and perhaps a little adventuring. While researching your next vacation destination, a farm may not immediately come to mind. Farm stays are gaining popularity across Slovenia and may just be the perfect balance for your family’s next vacation.

These days, many farms in Slovenia include accommodation and visitor experiences as part of their business. This offers a very unique opportunity to stay on a working farm, meet the people behind the produce and learn the ways of the land. Farm stay accommodation lets you immerse yourself in rural country life and meet very warm, down-to-earth Slovenians living off the land. Farm stay hosts are very friendly and welcoming, and often you can also join in with farm tasks, including feeding and egg collecting, and feast on home-grown produce.

Styled after traditional B&Bs, farm stays in Slovenia are an increasingly popular vacation option, especially for young families with children who just love having friendly animals on tap and lots of space to run around and play. They offer comfortable lodging, low rates, generous breakfasts, and direct access to farm animals, fresh fruit and eggs.
