Rural Areas and the Locals

Charming tourist farms and nice small rural apartments are just a part of the intact nature of the LAND OF CELJE. You can enjoy the warm atmosphere, delicious home-made food with home-grown vegetables or fruit and of course salami and cheese.


The destination boasts a range of farms, some of which are specialised in biologically produced vegetables, and other farms offer excellent dry meat products, home-produced spirits or home-brewed beer.  
In the morning, you’ll wake up listening to the sound of birds. From your room you will see fields, vineyards and forests. If you feel like horseback riding, you can visit equestrian centres or nearby farms with horses, or you can play golf, visit outdoor museums or simply take a walk on any of the numerous walking trails. The locals will be pleased to show you their chores, inviting you to join them, and they’ll also be happy to show you their cheese ripening rooms, the spirit-making or brewing procedure.
You can visit many lakes with nice walking trails, which enable leisurely strolls, and have a rest on a bench or go running or cycling.
One thing’s for sure – you’ll fall in love with the Land of Celje at first sight.
