If you want to enjoy a peaceful holiday in the heart of the Alps, far away from the hustle and bustle of the crowded tourist areas, you are on the right page! Come to this fairy-tale land at the foothills of Kamnik-Savinja Alps, where one of the oldest and prettiest homesteads in Slovenija awaits you. This is a little piece of heaven for families, hikers, cyclists and everyone who loves nature, tradition and good home-made food. Have a look at their brand new house called 'Preužitkarica'.
I can hear you saying: 'What is this Preužitkarica...?' In the olden days, this was the house where grandpa and grandma used to live once they handed over the farm to the 'young ones'. Formally speaking, they ensured themselves 'preužitek': the right to have a place to stay and food when the farm was passed to the younger generation. Inheritance has always been a tricky thing. :)
Šenk homestead is more than 500 years old and the beautiful Preužitkarica got a complete makeover in 2014. The house was renovated in the original style, with the use of many old wooden beams for the interior. Guests can choose among two wonderful apartments for 4 people and 2 double rooms. There is a big dining room on the ground floor, ideal for social gatherings, and a Finnish and Infra-red sauna in the basement. If you want to be closer to nature, you can even sleep on the campsite or in the hay barn.
This amazing homestead consists of several buildings; the main house was built in 1517! It is one of the oldest farm houses in Slovenia and the lovely owners, Polona and Drejc, will be delighted to tell you its history.
The spacious yard offers plenty of space for play and different events, which are usually organized in summer: a wedding, a birthday celebration or just a party with a breathtaking view!
Šenk homestead is the right place for a memorable family holiday in nature or an active holiday for hikers, mountaineers or cyclists. In winter, the nearby peaks offer a great 'playground' for ski touring, there is a small sledding area in front of the house and great cross-country trails.
It's unbelievably beautiful. All year round!
