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.

We explored the local countryside and a couple of wineries nearby, and did I mention we ...

We then continued our Bus ride for awhile and then stopped at a highway rest stop, where I got a coffee and some candy. It was a beautiful sunny day (but not too hot) and I think everyone was enjoying the sun.
After leaving the rest stop, it wasn’t far to the ...
... and sleeping areas.It was splendid, and we felt guilty that we were only staying one night. He took us upstairs to his apartment, where we drank coffee, chatted about the World Cup and met his daughter Adriane. Josip proudly showed us a cutting from "The Guardian" from 2006, which praised the fine accommodation at Apartments Peric. But he was even more proud of his newly born grand-daughter, as was very clear when he took charge of her. Family is family in any language.
... our meals. We headed to Starbucks afterwards, before making our way over to Charles Bridge for our last bit of sightseeing before we all left in the morning. It looked amazing at night and we could see how accurate all the paintings we'd seen at the markets were. We went back to the hostel and stayed up for a few hours chatting, making the most of our last night with Kristy for who knows how long! :( we had big hugs then went to bed. Kristy had to leave at 2:30am for her ...
