General information

The Podpečan farm, located between the towns of Žalec and Celje, in the village of Galicija, has a 250-year old tradition. A holiday with the Podpečan family, three generations of which are currently living on the farm and which is well known for their excellent cheese and dairy products, is a good choice for all those who wish to spend a few days in harmony with nature. Guests can stay in rooms furbished in the countryside style, discover the variety of flavours of different cheeses (cheese with coal, young cheese with smoked trout, cottage cheese balls with herbs in sunflower seed oil…) or relax in the nicely equipped wellness corner. The hosts will be happy to welcome each and every guest and to show them their farm. The cheese dairy facilities are located in an old farm building called marof; it is here that the Podpečans make their cheese from fresh cow's milk from their farm. If you want, you can go on a guided tour of the cheese dairy, the culmination if which is cheese tasting in a special tasting room. Nearby tourist attractions include the towns of Žalec and Celje, boasting the most majestic castle in Slovenia (Celje Old Castle), Vrbje ponds, Šmartinsko Lake, which can be visited on foot, by bike or by car. If you enjoy a short hike, don’t forget to visit Kunigunda…
