Picture a miniature Yosemite Valley with no tourists and a few quaint homes and little farms! The Psnak Farm is a small functioning family farm in a breathtaking and quiet setting within Triglav National Park about 10 miles west of Bled, Slovenia. It makes an excellent base to explore the Julian Alps and nearby Bled.
Warm and friendly hostess Tanja speaks excellent English and, with the help of her mother-in-law, provides hearty meals at fabulous prices. Accomodations are in their old stone family farmhouse, recently expanded. The six tourist rooms share a separate private entrance and are spotless and beautifully furnished. Our room had a covered balcony with a stunning view of Yosemite like pastures in the foreground surrounded by peaks of the Julian Alps.
Their valley is filled with history, and when we were there in May, stunning wild flowers. They will loan you bicycles to explore the quiet local roads, and you can ride into nearby Bled (about 10 miles) the "back way" passing numerous interesting sites on the way.
We were impressed with Slovenia in general: Warm friendly people, outstanding scenery, fun villages to discover on impossibly windy roads through the Julian Alps, and inexpensive prices. We understand that the Tourist Farms are wonderful throughout Slovenia. We received a booklet describing about 250 tourist farms through www.slovenia.info. Our experience at the Psnak Farm could not be topped!!! We will be back!
