Vila Castanea - Kostanjevica on Krka river, Slovenia

A historic villa on a river island.

The Vila Castanea is in the very heart of the old town Kostanjevica na Krki, Slovenia's only town on a river island. It is an ideal place to relax, enjoy the natural beauty of the soft Dolenjska landscape, the picturesque wine-growing hills and the soothing Krka.

This grand town house from the end of the 19th century is a protected landmark of local importance with a diverse and interesting history – as an inn, residential house and villa. It boasts a richly decorated front facade, an arched ground floor, floors made of local stone and an arcaded interior courtyard in the shade of a mighty chestnut tree. It dominates the old part of Kostanjevica na Krki; its windows open onto wonderful views of the soft Dolenjska hills, the sleepy Krka and the town. Breathe in the fresh spring air, enjoy the scent of newly mown grass in late summer and allow yourself to be tempted by baked chestnuts from the surrounding woodlands.

Comfortable modern rooms with a bourgeois feel

In the villa Castanea, which is pleasantly cool in summer and comfortably warm in spring and autumn, there are seven twin bedrooms and two spacious family rooms. The rooms are a reflection of the character of bourgeois villas – have you ever wanted to sleep in a four-poster bed? – but are fully equipped with modern facilities from natural materials, with an eye for detail and everything dictated by the comforts of the 21st century.

Vila Castanea has a boutique-hotel charm, but has an exclusive dimension to it, via Grand Rentals booking.
