B&B Vila Castanea

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

The Vila Castanea is in the very heart of the old town, the only one which stands on a river island, with the green Krka winding its way around it, and 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. 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.
In the villa we have created comfortable modern rooms with character of bourgeois villas – 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.
You will enjoy breakfast beneath the vaulted ceiling of the breakfast room, warmed by an open fire on cold mornings, with the scent of the logs. Our breakfasts are rich and healthy and made from organic or local carefully prepared ingredients. Fresh seasonal fruit, vegetables, meat and milk products from local farms, home-made jam and honey, fresh bread and pastries.

The meandering river offers charming reflections of the Gorjanci hills, the River Krka flows slowly and lazily. This green river, also called the green beauty, is very eye-catching and offers much pleasure – boating, SUPing, canoeing, swimming, fishing or simply taking a break from daily worries while lying on its riverbeds.
Kostanjevica na Krki, Slovenia’s smallest town and one of the oldest, is a veritable wonder of nature. The “na Krki” (“on the Krka”) part of its name is extremely apt, since the old part of the town is actually situated on an island in a bend of the river Krka, which makes this town unique worldwide. It’s located at the foot of the Gorjanci Hills, between Ljubljana and Zagreb.
Only a small town offers so much luxury in such a small space – the art of wooden sculpture at Forma Viva, a look around the Cistercian monastery or a visit to the Božidar Jakac Art Museum. Last but not least, Kostanjevica na Krki is a treasure for food lovers – you can enjoy local specialities, Cviček and high-quality wines, freshly picked fruit and local fruit juices.
Located not far from the Vila Castanea (walkind distance) Krakovski Gozd is a swamp forest; it is regularly flooded by the nearby Krka River. The Krakov Forest is one of the few preserved forests of its kind in Europe. The wetland forest amidst a levelled agricultural land is a sanctuary for many plant and animal species. With 14 species present, amphibians are by far the most endangered, for example the moor frog, and birds such as the middle spotted woodpecker, the collared flycatcher, the black stork, the lesser spotted eagle and the white-tailed eagle. By the forest is an 8-kilometre hiking trail named after Ressel, the inventor the ship propeller.
