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.

At about 13:00 we reached the Lisjak Winery, where we would have a wine tasting and lunch.

made wine which is absolutely fantastic! There is a family we bought
wine from they also have a restaurant on the way up to the Castle called
Fakin. Fantastic local products and very reasonably priced.
Imagine Tuscany but a quarter of the price tag on anything you get.
Motovun you will see us back soon!
... stuff, so bear with me! The borders of Yugoslavia were formed purely around those who spoke the Slavic language. This is pretty dangerous really; it is better to create a border around people whose origin, culture, religion and beliefs are the same, rather than they just speak a similar language (think Israel, think Ireland).
So what happened after we flew back to England after our skiing holiday? Well, Yugoslavia managed to hold ...
... to a different part of town for dinner. As she explained to us, all of the restaurants in the palace walls or close to them are all seasonal. The only restaurants that are open all year round, local family owned & operated were about a 5 minute walk. As it turned out, all of them were very busy but we ended up getting in to one and had a great server and a fantastic dinner. We headed home, but not before we got.........yep, you guessed it, JR's gelato.
