Time flows slowly here, so you can regain energy in the authentic coexistence with unspoiled nature in the Triglav national park, and gain new strength for your everyday life. The farm is an ideal starting point for hiking along the Soča River, exploring Bovec area and the nearby mountains for different sport activities. We will make sure that your stomachs are full and satisfied.
We offer sheep cheese, ricotta and more homemade products. All of them are served with freshly baked bread. Our house specialty is trout with sheep cheese, but we also prepare trout in other ways.
Everyone who loves tradition will be delighted by our local specialties such as čompe (boiled potatoes) with salted ricotta, traditional omelettes and lamb roulade ... Of course, we have not forgotten vegetarians and vegans and we also prepare wonderful dishes for them in our kitchen.
In the early seventies our father Ivan came to Soča from Čadrg, a village near Tolmin, and our mom Dora from Lepena, a small village close to Soča. Our father got here for work, and soon destiny brought him and our mom together. They bought an old farm and started rebulding our home and fulfilling their dreams. At that time our father had a job, he was a forester and our mom took care of us children. Soon after, the four of us were born: Boštjan, Alenka, Primož and Ana. The beginnings in tourism were simple. Over the summer, we moved to the woodshed and rented our rooms to our first guests in ’87. Today, we offer 3 double rooms with private bathroom and balcony, 2 apartments and shared dormitories.
Besides tourism, we have always been doing livestock farming. The sheep herd was getting bigger and bigger and we soon gained knowledge and experience. Our father learned how to make sheep cheese. Sheep cheese is based on a traditional recipe, that had been first recorded in the 14th century. He passed on his knowledge to his eldest son Boštjan who now runs the farm and owns around 110 dairy sheep of the indigenous breed called Bovec sheep or » trentarka«. We also have a couple of cows of the breed Cika, 4 donkeys, a couple of pigs and chickens. Of course a farm with no cats and dogs isn't a farm… we can't go without them.
Alenka has a family with her husband Janko, and they have four children: Eva, Tinkara, Vid and Lovro. Alenka likes to say she works in public relations and makes friends with the broom. Children are getting older. Eva's boyfriend Žan has already settled into farm life and work. The youngest daughter Ana has taken her moms place in the kitchen and continues to cook with great passion by traditional recipes, whilst still trying new recipes. She also enjoys making vegetarian and vegan dishes. Primož has a job elsewhere, but lives on the farm and offers his help.
In 2011, we built a small campsite, that is unique and simple and is entirely based on the work of our family and friends. Together, we work and create on the farm and we are proud of our work. To you, our dear guests, we say welcome to our little place and, we hope you'll feel just like at home.
Our father. Master, farmer, cheesemaker, forester, musician, painter. He loves to share his wisdom with anyone who will listen. He always has a full head of new ideas and a lot of joy to work on them. And that drives him on. You can take a look at his work on canvas here.
Our mother. A woman who supports the corners of the house, what is more, our mother, holds them tightly. Modest and simple, yet a strong and courageous wife, mother and grandmother. Her homemade jams, pasta, real-Soča krafi, a very special local dessert, buckwheat rolled dumplings with walnuts and so on and on, these flavors take us back in time. Her great joy are the flowers that lushly adorn every corner of the house and garden.
Ana, a girl with a big cuisine heart and a heartfelt devotion to all four-legged friends. A boss who isn’t seen often but her dishes speak for her. Her dishes treat us with flavors intertwined with the past and a pinch of modern times. She trusts the power of energy and raises it for herself and others.
Boštjan, we call him an old soul. From an early age he came to know the life of a shepherd, sheep breeding was written in his genes and destiny. A farmer who recognizes his animals by name. He is a man full of stories from long-forgotten days.
Alenka, a proud mother of four. Always ready to help, a smiling soul without prejudices and with a lot of positivity in her. Public relations, “friendship” with a broom, and running with a tray around the garden is a quick summary of her work. The biggest smile is drawn on her face by the youngest guests.
Janko, a man of skilful hands and a quiet character. Before the night comes, he will happily prepare a fire and sit in a circle.
Eva and Žan, Tinkara, Vid and Lovro. Our hardworking young ants. They undertake everything in their power and each of them enriches and beautifies the work on the farm.
