Hotel Kastel, Motovun

Hotel Kaštel is located at the very top of a 277-meter high hill where the medieval town of Motovun stands. The highest Motovun square, which is fenced by walls, is surrounded by constructions from the Venetian period. It can be accessed through the ancient town door, and Hotel Kaštel, located in a 17th century palace, is one of the highest constructions on the central Motovun square – it is a recognizable part of the total skyline of this ancient town.

In front of Hotel Kaštel is a terrace with centuries-old chestnut trees which also mark the begining of the promenade through the walls of the city. Palace Pollesini, where Hotel Kaštel is located, was carefully furnished and adjusted to the needs of our guests. In the warm and domestic atmosphere of this family hotel, tradition, a pleasant ambient and comfort intertwine.

Almost every window of the magical construction offers an exceptional view of the town square, the town streets, the landscape of central Istria, the valley of the Mirna River and famous Motovun vineyards which give a feeling of complete relaxation from the moment you wake up and till you go to sleep.
