“Wonderful Experience for our family”
Reviewed April 16, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed here for 2 nights and that was much too short for the area. First of all we were welcomed by the entire family to Ostir's Farm, and were given a lovely historical review of the property and the area. Blaz's recommendations for touring were outstanding and perfect for our family. We loved cooking our food on the traditional wood stove and the family's attention to detail in regards to keeping the historical feel to the farmhouse is commendable. We loved the homemade desserts, apple juice, schnapps, and farm grown asparagus all presented to us. The price is reasonable and the area deserves a minimum of 4 days to a week of exploration. We were able to do the 1 hour tour of Krizna caves, and plan to return some day in hopes of participating in the 7 hour trip to the underground lakes. Spectacular! We recommend this property without hesitation!

“Great Traditional Slovenian Home”
Reviewed March 12, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We stayed at Ostir Farms for two nights in order to visit the surrounding attractions. It is a great location to visit the Ljubljana, Predjama Catle/Caves, Piran or the coast, and the natural attractions around Cerknica. The house was fantastic, with original furniture and wood burning stoves... all clean and comfortable. The owner Blaz was more than helpful and sat down with us for a good 45 mintues explaining the houses history and the top attractions around the area that I wouldn't have known about otherwise (like the Rakov Škocjan Regional Park). They even prepared and gave us two bottles of delicious freshly made apple juice. Really the only issue is something that is to be expected with traditional style house, and that is the heating. The main room has electric heating and warms the room nicely but the other rooms and hallway can get rather cold during the winter months. This really wouldn't have been an issue at all if we hadn't brought our 2 year old but we managed just fine and found it pleasant with all of us sitting in the living/bedroom room with the wood stove and enjoying the rustic lifestyle for a weekend. Great property and owners.

“Something special”
Reviewed December 8, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed at Ostir's Farm Apartment for three days in July '13. The family is very hospitable and friendly and made us feel like being at home. The family shared local stories and even took us sightseeing. Furthermore they helped us plan some exiting trips in the area - visiting the disappearing lake, hiking the Snežnik mountain and exploring Križna jama Cave. All very special experiences that not many tourist have found (yet).
We will definitely recommend Ostir's Farm Apartments to others and we hope to return one day.

“A pleasant surprise in Cerknica”
Reviewed November 10, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We've been on holidays in Slovenia for a few years now, so we know the country quite well. This year we tried to do something different and went to a part of Slovenia where not a lot of tourists go. Close to the capital Ljubljana but untouched by mass-tourism we arrived in Cerknica and tried to find a place to sleep. Thanks to the local tourist-office we came in contact with Boris and his family. They are renovating the old farm of his oncle. When we came there, we were very impressed by the authenticity of the location. A warm welcome was given to us by the entire family, aswell as a tour in the house. Living as a child there, Boris surely knows a lot about the area. The very first day we made a tour with him around the lake. Besides from being a very entertaining guy, he told us all kinds of local stories a normal tourist just wouldn't hear. He also took a lot of efford in making our stay very pleasing, and got us into a special 4-hour cave-tour. Magnificent! We enjoyed our stay at Ostir's Farm aswell as the region and for sure we will return here some day!
