The 'Pri Plajerju' farm first began welcoming visitors in the beginning of the 1980s. Shortly afterwards the family had to move due to a huge rockfall which endangered life on the old homestead. The Pretner family made a new home only a few kilometres further up the Trenta valley. Stanka, Marko and their children Matevž, Jakob, Gregor and Maruša ensure that your temporary home will be comfortable. Guests at the Plajer homstead will get a truly authentic experience of life in the idyllic alpine valley, encased by the steep slopes of the highest Julian Alp mountains – in the Triglav National Park.
There are five apartments on the homestaed, which are named after the ear markings of small ruminants (sheep and goats). That is how they used to indentify the sheep on the shared high mountain pastures. It is also possible to spend the night in the hayloft, set up especially for visitors.
To ensure our guests' well-being, mainly natural materials have been used to furnish the apartments. The furniture is made from solid wood: spruce, larch, ash and maple. The quilts are made from wool and cotton, and the pillows are filled with wool and various grain husks. The slippers are also woollen.
Most of all, we are proud of the food we offer. It is simple, but made with love and inspiration. The food from Stanka's kitchen is healthy and is always made freshly with homegrown organic ingredients.
All the wastewater on the farmstead is filtered through a constructed wetland wastewater treatment system

The organic tourist farm 'pri Plajerju' has recently rearranged the lower part of the house into a small wellness centre. There you can find an infrared sauna, a shower and a wooden sauna, where you can relax and enjoy the calming effects of the bubbling water.
The younger members of the family – Matevž, Jakob, Gregor and the youngest, Maruša, will happily show you the wonders of living on a mountain farm that is home to Jaki the donkey, sheep and their lambs, chickens, rabbits and Dina the dog. It is always a pleasure when someone offers to help with collecting eggs, caring for rabbits, preparing the winter fodder for our animals or other farm chores.
We offer our guests breakfast and dinner: homemade bread; bread rolls; dried meat products made from mutton and pork produced on the farm, as well as venison dishes; zaseka (minced lard) spread; cheese; cottage cheese with ‘čompe’ potatoes (a local potato variety); homemade pastries; vegetables and fruit. Any and all food that we are not able to grow ourselves is bought from local or Slovene organic producers.
As we know the national park well, we are an invaluable source of information which is helpful for wandering around the beautiful natural surroundings that are in reach for all those staying at the farm. The Triglav National Park’s information centre, the source of the Soča River, the Soča trail, the Mlinarica River gorges and the beautiful Beladovec stream are all close by. There is also a long list of cultural and historical attractions that guests can visit.
