First Green Key awarded establishment in Slovenia combines cultural heritage with high environmental efforts

“B&B Pr’ Gavedarjo”, located in a village just outside the well-known ski resort Kranjska Gora in Slovenia, is an establishment with a history, a care for traditions and a passion for the environment.


The Bed & Breakfast establishment was built in 1913 and has been owned by the same family for four generations. The establishment has recently been renovated paying special attention to the traditions. The furniture and floors in the guest rooms are wooden, cushions are made in traditional patterns, and the walls are whitewashed keeping parts of the original hand painted walls.

B&B Pr’ Gavedarjo has five guest rooms all different in size and interior decoration. The second floor of the establishment is now being upgraded to allow for another four guest rooms. The renovation is of course again done with full care for the local traditions.

The passion for environment is also very obvious in the establishment with change of towels and sheets when needed, dispensers instead of individual packaged amenities, locally sourced products for breakfast, etc.

The announcement of B&B Pr’ Gavedarjo being the first Green Key awarded establishment was done on 17 May 2018 during the Internautica Boat Show in Slovenia, and Ms Martina Gregori from B&B Pr’ Gavedarjo officially received the Green Key certificate from Finn Bolding Thomsen, International Green Key Director.
