TravelPod Member ReviewsKastel Hotel Motovun
We stayed two nights in Motovun, the first at Villa Maria a private apartment that couldn't accommodate us for a second night. We moved to Kastel Hotel and were very happy. The staff is Great: friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable, breakfast buffet plentiful. We enjoyed a spa afternoon, which was a real treat as we were coming to the end of our six-week vacation.

Istria claims to be the Croatian Tuscany, and although that might be a bit of a stretch the hills and ...
... a bit to get there, discovering that Gabby and Milly had gone to a different one anyway. The sand was pretty dirty and the heat was outrageous, so we pretty much got straight into the ocean. The water was below knee-deep shallow for a long way out which was strange to see and lots of old Croatian men were playing a local ball game in the huge area of water that barely reached above my ankles. After a quick cool off we went back to shore for a little while but the heat got to us soon and ...
Woke up this morning (is 4am morning?) with stomach pains, again. Bloody hell... Hit the internet and self diagnose with some parasite (found in former Yugoslavian countries) and start fuming at Mark for forcing me to drink Slovenian river water, conveniently ignoring incubation periods.
By the time Mark wakes up, I've found the local pharmacy, but am not having much luck with finding a doctor. (I also have the details of ...
