Vila Castanea

Boutique Bed & Breakfast Vila Castanea – in Slovenian’s only town on a river island

The Vila Castanea is in the very heart of the old town Kostanjevica na Krki, in the 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.

Let the Vila Castanea be yours alone!

The exclusive hire of the villa for the organisation of a business event or wedding will guarantee you complete privacy; thus your stay and that of your guests will be adapted to your wishes. You are warmly welcome.

Comfortable modern rooms with character

In our villa, which is pleasantly cool in summer and comfortably warm in spring and autumn, we have created 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.
