Approximately 40 years ago the estate now known as Ortenia was transformed by its then owners Franc and Marija Jazbinsek into what locals nicknamed “the garden of Eden”, due to its amazing number of hydrangeas. Years later, some of their grandchildren decided to transform the estate once again with an eco conscious ethos that has proved to be highly successful with guests. A goal of the owners is to show guests the tranquil magic this place has, a magic their grandparents recognised and cherished.
