What to do

Turistična kmetija Škerlj – Tourist Farm Škerlj is located in the centre of the village of Tomaj, which has been an important settlement in the region since the 8th century BC. Its administrative, economic and cultural roles have joined in importance for the region with the legacy of hundreds of years of hard and persistent work.

The world-famous Route of St James passes through Tomaj towards the distant Santiago de Compostela. 

We live in the Karst region, a special part of the world surrounded by the most northern waters of the Mediterranean, the Vipava Valley, and the Brkini with its underground caves and sinking (disappearing) rivers, and red soil lashed by gusts of wind, but generous with fruits.

We were sculptured by the Karts wind, sun, soil and water, and we welcome you in our beautiful and typical Karst village endowed with a hospitable character.
