“Excellent stay in a beautiful farm house”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Me, my boyfriend and our 4.5 month old son stayed in this beautiful farm house for almost two weeks. The rooms had a really nice ambiente as the furniture were from the old days. Yet, the bathroom was newly renovated. The kitchen was well equipped so that we could cook our meals by ourselves.

The Jakopin-family did everything to make our stay really enjoyable. Boris explained the interesting as well as beautoful sights in the area and told us how to get there (Lake Cerknica, the caves, museum, traditional Slovenian food and so on). Big plus: we got to taste their delicious homemade liquors :)

The area around the lake is astonishing (we learned in a museum that it is the only one of its kind in the world). The village itself is rural, but as all important essentials such as super markets, tourist information, bars, restaurant. The people there are really nice.

Summing up: The region and the house are really worth a trip!

“Authentic and friendly place to stay”
Reviewed 23 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had a wonderful time at Ostir's farm!! A friendly welcome in a beautiful renovated farm house in Slovenia. The rooms are nicely decorated with beautiful old style furniture. Also a nice experience was that we could make use of the vegetable garden in front of the house, We have eaten string beans, carrots, lettuce , onion and plums from the garden and the orchard.
Ostir's farm is a good place to relax and enjoy the atmosfere of the house, the old hayrack and the vegetable garden. Boris gave us good advise and information about the area around lake Cerknica. It's a very beautiful intermitting lake and a special natural phenonemon and one of the highlights of our holiday. Prevent the big tourist sites and go of the beaten track and experience the real Slovenia around lake Cerknica!! Entertain yourself with a trip around the lake and the surrounding, visit the small villages, go to Rakov Skocjan and the Krisna cave, relax and eat from the vegetable garden at Ostir;s farm.

“Wonderful Experience for our family”
Reviewed 16 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed here for 2 nights and that was much too short for the area. First of all we were welcomed by the entire family to Ostir's Farm, and were given a lovely historical review of the property and the area. Blaz's recommendations for touring were outstanding and perfect for our family. We loved cooking our food on the traditional wood stove and the family's attention to detail in regards to keeping the historical feel to the farmhouse is commendable. We loved the homemade desserts, apple juice, schnapps, and farm grown asparagus all presented to us. The price is reasonable and the area deserves a minimum of 4 days to a week of exploration. We were able to do the 1 hour tour of Krizna caves, and plan to return some day in hopes of participating in the 7 hour trip to the underground lakes. Spectacular! We recommend this property without hesitation!

“Great Traditional Slovenian Home”
Reviewed 12 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We stayed at Ostir Farms for two nights in order to visit the surrounding attractions. It is a great location to visit the Ljubljana, Predjama Catle/Caves, Piran or the coast, and the natural attractions around Cerknica. The house was fantastic, with original furniture and wood burning stoves... all clean and comfortable. The owner Blaz was more than helpful and sat down with us for a good 45 mintues explaining the houses history and the top attractions around the area that I wouldn't have known about otherwise (like the Rakov Škocjan Regional Park). They even prepared and gave us two bottles of delicious freshly made apple juice. Really the only issue is something that is to be expected with traditional style house, and that is the heating. The main room has electric heating and warms the room nicely but the other rooms and hallway can get rather cold during the winter months. This really wouldn't have been an issue at all if we hadn't brought our 2 year old but we managed just fine and found it pleasant with all of us sitting in the living/bedroom room with the wood stove and enjoying the rustic lifestyle for a weekend. Great property and owners.
