A truly gem. Let's talk about the four “P”s:
PLACE: In Jeruzalem wine area, location between Ljutomer and Ormoz in Kog. Is tricky to arrive there, but in the area there are signs that point directions to this farm; kind in middle of nowhere completely surrounded by vineyards!
PRODUCT: Is a farm tourist or agritourism, well to be exact a wine-producer with rooms for tourists and wine tasting area. They serve meals too but have to coordinate in advance with them. The owners are art lovers and can see lots of art pieces (paintings, sculptures) displayed everywhere outdoors and indoors.
Outdoor areas: Small children playground, outdoor terraces for eating or wine tasting, parking spots just front of the farm.
1. Rooms: there are, I think 7 rooms, mostly with back terrace with panoramic view of the vineyards and the others front view also with vineyards view. The size is average good like an hotel room, with wooden carved furniture (bed, cupboards); complete bathroom with shower and clean towels but no toiletries; flat screen tv with mainly Slovenian, German and Croatian channels.
2. Common areas: There is, I think a room with large table and chairs which can be served as meeting room, seating areas.
3. Dining room and tasting area: Once when inside gives the impression of being inside a wine cellar with rustic wooden tables.
Food: Breakfast abundant with cereals, bread slices, eggs, fruits, yogurts, coffee, tea those classic. For dinner oh, this is a paradise for those great eaters... starters two large bowls of soup, serve and eat as you can... then this large plate with chicken, sausages, meat, potatoes, pasta, grains,rice... eat all this without their own wine?? Both nights when dinnered there we never couldn't finish the whole plate... plus dessert (yummy potica!)...
PRICE: Under 100 euro very very good priced.
PROMOTION: They don't need absolutely to advertise themselves, is like an entire word-of-mouth thing... book well in advance, they are always full!! (we wanted to stay longer but couldn't since the rooms were booked months in advance specially weekends!)
Pluses: There are some bikes which can be rented for cycling in the surroundings; walk in the vineyards; is possible to join the landlady (she is the cook too!) early in the morning for mushroom collecting (one of those days she collected some fungi porcini and other edibles then that evening she prepared mushroom soup, yummy fresh!); possible to join the landlords for grape harvesting (which we tried to book but already fully booked!). There is free wi-fi, didn't work in our room but in the common areas worked perfectly.
Minuses: The only minus for us was the language... The seniors only German and Croatian plus native Slovenian... some English among the young ones but they are not always there... There were separate tables of German guests then at the end of the dinner they started to join as the landlord started to entertain the large group with jokes and songs... I wish I knew some German to join too... but the language barrier didn't spoil our vacations, great was the place, the food and the atmosphere...
