Welcome to Olimje

About us

Olimje

At the Jelenov greben homestead, which is located only a few tens of meters above the Olimje monastery with the famous third oldest pharmacy in Europe, a varied tourist offer has been added for many years.

First, fallow deer and mouflons run towards you, but if they are reluctant, the master calls them with the affectionate name: "Pikaaaa, Pikiiii...", and they get corn as a treat. The deer roam around the 8-hectare fenced property.

History

In the village of Olimje, where today the story of a successful family business is written, about three decades ago there was a farm with cows and a small vineyard. At the young age of 18, Borut Ježovnik inherited the farm from his grandfather Ivan Amon. 

Due to the size of the property, Mr. The hedgehog decided to sell the cattle and buy fallow deer in order to graze the land. 

Many people remember the beginnings of Jelenov Greben for growing mushrooms, canned goods and compost. This is how the trade with domestic products, for which we are still known today, began to expand slowly but steadily. 

At the request of passers-by, we began to prepare the champignons we grew for guests to taste, and later we decided to set up an inn on the place where the barn stood a few years ago. The restaurant and cafe Jelenov greben still stands on this spot. 

To this day, we are mainly known for our venison and mushroom specialties, and the culinary offer always complements traditional Slovenian flavors with novelties. 

Since visitors always liked to come to Olimje and wanted to stay a few days longer, in 1996 we built two houses where two boarding houses are located: "Pension Rebeka" and "Pension Karolina", named after the first two daughters of the owner of Jelenov greben, Borut Ježovnik . In 2013, we opened "Wellness Lara" between the two pensions, named after our youngest daughter Lara. Wellness Lara is a four-time winner of the "Best rural wellness" award. 

Jelenov greben is a family business that strives to make every visitor to Olimje feel welcome and at home. The key to development is to listen to the guest and to find suitable, competent personnel for each idea, who will identify with the company's vision, and of course add some of their own ideas. 

Today, the company employs around 30 people, and the number of employees is growing year by year.
