I am sure, you know it. Sometimes you find yourself in a place where you only need a second to know that this is it. One breath in and out and positive energy will permeate you. Take the invitation to the place healing your soul, where time is running slowly and guests are treated with joy and love. Welcome to the Lenar farmstead in the Logar Valley in Slovenia.
The Lenar family farmstead is located in the heart of the Logar Valley. It offers accommodation in classic rooms, apartments or hayloft. Mrs. Urša takes care of the daily run of the farmstead and their parents help her. Parents do not speak English well, they prefer German, but they try, even if they are looking hard for words, they are still smiling at you. They all have a smile on their lips all the time.
When I made the booking, they were sold out for the whole month. Only the two days in which I planned the Logar Valley visit, were free to book and it was a double room with an extra bed. Chance? I do not think so. The whole interior is nicely equipped, Urša has combined the old stuffs with the new ones so that you feel very comfortable here.

The farmstead is the ideal base for an active holiday. Hiking and cycling trails are close, all sport equipment is available for free, including bicycles. If you just want to relax, choose a sun bed, a swing or a hammock, watch grazing horses and goats, take a book and enjoy your presence in this beautiful Alpine valley.
What a playground
The price includes a breakfast prepared by Urša´s mum. You can find everything from freshly squeezed goat's milk, herbal juice, homemade pastries, amazing homemade jams, eggs, cheeses, sausages. But the flower tea that collects Urša´s mother-in-law is really something special. Oh, I want to go back! The farm boasts an environmental certification, and you can find a fenced vegetable and herb field in front of the building.
Small private field
It is a pity that such places are difficult to find. I found Lenar thanks to Lonely Planet. We do not look for luxury, but places with genius loci, where we'll feel good, slow down and enjoy that we all three together. You do not find a farm on booking.com, it has a booking system on its website. So check it, plan and go!
