You will find “Hiša zdravega oddiha” in Podslivnica — a small hamlet 10km out of Cerknica in the direction of Rakitna. Here, in the middle of Central Slovenia’s forests, only seven houses are occupied fulltime, and most of the buildings are barns. We are in an area full of wildlife, so meeting some is quite ordinary.
Hiša Zdravega Oddiha
(The House of Healthy Relaxation)
The idea of setting up accommodation in a small village amid a forest was born in 2014. That
year my husband and I planted a field of goji berries, which has received the ecological
certificate in 2019. Sworn lovers of nature, tradition, and heritage, which the space offers
us, we decided to transform a dilapidating barn into luxury accommodation with rich and
local amenities. By restructuring the existing building, we gave it new life. This way, we can
offer our guests organic produce from our fields and at the same time let them experience
the preserved cultural and ethnological heritage of the place. The building is divided into
two floors: the apartments are in the attic, while the ground floor holds the sauna with
apitherapy (inhalation of bee air) and a common area for socialising and resting.
