Besides the accommodation, it provides relaxation in two saunas. The farm has a restaurant with a capacity of 150 seats. The pleasant ambience of the restaurant is enhanced by a traditional earthware stove, in which the traditional Vojvodina’s specialties are prepared. Besides the local dishes, the guests can savour the dishes of Italian cuisine ``a la carte``. Salas provides accommodation in double and three-bedded rooms (with double or twin beds). Each room has en suite bathroom and it is equipped with air conditioning, cable TV and internet access. According to Vuk Stefanovic Karadzic, a famous Serbian philologist, a word ``salaš`` is most probably of a Turkish origin. It is the widespread word, which can be found in various regions and with different meanings. For example, in Bosnia (in Visoko and in Sarajevo) it means ``corn basket``, while in Kosovo, it means ``breeder’s home``. Other nations such as Bulgarians, Slovaks, Poles, Romanians, Hungarians, Russians, Turks and Ukrainians use this word with the meaning of ``wattle shed``, that is to say, a wooden booth for selling fruit. Salas also means a farm, homestead or agricultural estate which is also the meaning of a Hungarian word ``szalas``. It refers to the lonely homestead built in a field that is cultivated and surrounded with the auxiliary buildings and usually fenced in by wooden staves or wire fence, thus, making a farmyard.
