We stayed for 14 nights with our family. As Slovenia was unknown to us, it was a great help to get advice from Kate. But that isn't the main reason why Tilnik is a small paradise. Everything begins at the road side down in the vally. Driving up to Stopnik 26, or rather climbing, is an experience whileworth. Because once you reach Tilnik Farm, you're in a green paradise of tranquility and peace. Nothing else matters !!!!
I will long remember our nice summer evenings, some of them with a very tasteful home-made pizza, made by Kate.
We certainly recommend Tilnik Farm to everyone who wants to relax after a stressfull busy working life.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Tilnik Farm is a traditional Slovenian farmhouse which has been converted into 2 luxury apartments for guests. It is situated on the Western side of Slovenia 8km from Cerkno in the foothills of the Julian Alps "the sunny side of the alps". The Farmhouse is available all year round with walking, fishing, swimming, water sports, horse riding plus many more activities in the summer and skiing in the winter. The farm is set in an elevated position looking down the Idrijca river valley. This is a working farm with animals surrounded by organic gardens and hay meadows, fruit trees and forests. There is a large stream running through the property with deep clear pools and waterfalls containing Cray fish and rainbow/brown trout this eventually joins up with the Idrijca River. The overall aim of Tilnik Farm is to have a self-sufficient enterprise combining sustainable tourism with organic farming. At the moment the livestock of the farm includes; sheep, goats and chickens providing fresh eggs, dairy and meat and a Vietnamese pot-bellied pig. We have our own renewable fuel (firewood, hydro electric and solar powered energy). The Farm is run by Brett and Kate Bedford with their two dogs Lupa and Ruby who re-located to Slovenia in 2005. They live on site and try to help guests get the most out of there stay by offering advice on places to visit and what to see in Slovenia. They also offer fresh, organic farm produce and pick your own fruit and veggies. ... more less
