Domačija Amon

  Olimje 24, Podčetrtek      +386 (0)3 818 24 80     more than a year ago
This friendly, family-run homestead started off some years ago as just a farm and restaurant. Today it is a full-fledged eco-resort run by the Amon family, offering accommodation, food, wine and activities. The boarding house Natura Amon is located in an oasis of greenery. To one side there is a forest and on the other there’s a view of the golf course. The large modern rooms are in what used to be a huge barn and each one is different. All are decorated in relaxing colours and some have a balcony, and all offer a wide range of facilities with high-quality furniture made from natural materials. The eco ethos is important here, and camping is also available.

On the estate, they grow organic fruit including old, indigenous varieties of apple, plum and pear trees. They also grow organic vegetables and herbs in their gardens. All the organic produce is put to use creating meals for the restaurant. The impressive restaurant is furnished in the rustic style of a wine cellar and is decorated with original objects associated with the viticulture industry. The award-winning food is seasonal and cooked fresh according to traditional recipes. Try the kozjanska mushroom soup or a stew for a treat. It’s all mouth-watering, especially when washed down with some of Amon’s own wines. These come from the vineyards of the Šmarsko-Virštanjski region. There are several wines under the Amon label - red, white and a new sparkling wine with a taste of strawberries. Tastings take place in the restaurant and wine cellar.

Check out the weekend golf packages which are a really great deal. The 9-hole Olimje course offers a walk among sand and water hazards. It’s a fairly challenging but ultimately pleasant course. Lessons are available under the guidance of golf pros.
