Estate Castle Prestranek
In the heart of pastures and karstic forests there is the Grad Prestranek estate which has 300 hectares of land and is 5 kilometres away from Postojna, in the direction of Pivka. At the estate there is a castle from the 16th century.
We are breeding Icelandic horses at the estate now. It is the purest autochthonous horse breed in the world. There are 27 horses in the herd now. It is the largest herd of Icelandic horses in Slovenia. It is possible to ride the horses in the indoor riding stables, at the outdoor paddock or in the beautiful nature around the estate.
In the restaurant Na Gradu where 65 people can have a meal at the same time we prepare home-made food. Our speciality is food made of bio beef Angus.
We also have six beautiful and functional suites for 4 or 6 people, type STUDIO. In each suite there is a small kitchen and a bathroom. The suites are classified in 2* category.
The two main activities at the estate are farming and tourism. We are standing up for continual development of tourism which is also acceptable for the local environment.
A part of the estate is an ecological farm where we produce organic milk. We have 230 black and white cows.
We are also breeding the cattle for meat. It is the black German Angus cattle that is quite unknown in Slovenia. Angus beef is of the highest quality of all beef meat. We got the ecological breeding certificate in 2010.
In the last few years we have cooperated with the Hribar herb farm. We have planted the herb garden at the Grad Prestranek estate. We hope that the visit of the garden will help our visitors to identify and use the herbs.
The estate, surrounded with forests, meadows and many natural, cultural and historical sights, is a perfect place to visit. It is also an ideal place for relaxation and development of ideas.
