“Superb Slovenian Walking Holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

I have just returned from a relaxing holiday at Pri Lenart. This was my third trip and I enjoyed this stay every bit as much as my previous visits. The walks were interesting and varied and two new walks had been added. Sarah and her assistant Mojca, who lead the walks, were both very well informed about the area and its wildlife and plant life as well as Slovenia culture and history.

The house was beautifully presented, the bedroom was large, well appointed and very comfortable. The barn and terrace with Jacuzzi were ideal spots to relax and enjoy the view.

As always the food was delicious from the substantial breakfast with lots of choice to the eagerly anticipated dinner. A tasty packed lunch was eaten whilst enjoying the peace of the beautiful Slovenian countryside and tea with a slice of freshly baked cake was served on return from the walks. As before Keith and Sarah used lots of fresh, local, seasonal produce to prepare dinners which were thoughtfully designed and beautifully presented.

Meals and walks were taken as a group and I thoroughly enjoyed the company of the other guests at Pri Lenart who helped make my holiday memorable.

Everyone at Pri Lenart made a tremendous effort to make each guest feel at home and once again I’m looking forward to returning.

This holiday lived up to every expectation, the accommodation was superb as was the food. The walks showed us the delightful Slovenian countryside and gave the opportunity to meet some of the local people going about their lives. Keith & Sarah are excellent hosts who have converted this farmhouse into a beautiful chalet hotel. We would have no hesitation in recommending this holiday to our friends.

From the early morning yoga I did in the open stable that faced the Slovenian mountains through a day of thoughtfully selected hikes to give us a sense of the history and daily life in the region, not to speak of the beauty, to the late afternoon tea with home baked wonders, climaxing with a dinner to rave about in flavor, color and texture and wine and conversation to accompany it I feel lucky to have found such a place. It is Sarah and Keith who had the vision for this place, the talent to execute and the charm and wit with which they have made it happen that make this experience so unique. I cannot recommend this place with more enthusiasm!

Room Tip: Each is different, each is delightful.

Pri Lenart is an experience to treasure. Under Sarah’s expert guidance our hikes into the beautiful Slovenian Alps were not only exhilarating and tailored to our physical abilities, but gave us contact with locals and insights into their way of life that made our week much more than just a “walking holiday.” After a full day of activity Keith’s impressive culinary skills rewarded us with an exciting late afternoon treat and a fantastic evening meal that always seemed to exceed our expectations. Delicious dinners were made more enjoyable by the mix of our small international group (Scots, Canadians, Americans) and the intimacy we created spending our days together. Our accommodations were first-class with lots of attention to details. Pri Lenart is an extraordinary holiday run by an unusual and highly competent couple. Sarah and Keith know how to design and manage a group holiday with a perfect blend of the personal, the private, and the informal. Our week was one we will always remember.

Room Tip: They are all charming

This holiday exceeded our expectations in every way. Keith and Sarah who own and run Pri Lenart , did everything they possibly could to make sure that we had a wonderful stay. The food is exceptional, they are very welcoming, and the house is in a beautiful location. Some of the walks were challenging and other walks less so, and always we had the option of choosing what was more suitable. A fascinating and beautiful place to visit. We went as a group of ten friends who already holiday together. However, Sarah and Keith were very thoughtful and made sure that we were catered for as individuals , as well as a group. We loved having fluffy the dog around too!
It was a relaxing and very enjoyable stay. We would love to visit again? Thanks so much for the perfect holiday we loved it.

I have just returned from a wonderful week in the Julian Alps staying at Pri Lenart. My wife and I were welcomed as if we were part of the family and that characterized how we felt for the whole week. Sarah and Keith worked hard to identify everyone’s needs and Sarah, with her assistant guide Moitaj, were very sensitive to the needs and capabilities of the individual members of the group. We felt very safe and nothing seemed to faze Sarah as she demonstrated her experience and capabilities in all walking conditions. The hospitality after the walks was equally caring and to the highest standard while still being friendly with that extended family feeling. I do not write reviews lightly and I can honestly say that Sarah and Keith deserve the very highest recommendation.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent. The sound proofing in the house is excellent and you cannot hear anything...
