Host Info

Host Review Score

Starting April 2017, Your new host at Casa Romantica La Parenzana will be Mr. Gordan Prodan. Situated in a rural area of Istria just 10 km from the sea, it is a peaceful oasis for relaxation and an ideal starting point for daily exploration of this beautiful area. The “Casa Romantica Parenzana” is located on the “Parenzana” an old disused Austro-Hungarian railway line that once connected Trieste with Poreč. The old railway is currently under restoration as a bike trail and passes through three countries (Italy, Slovenia and Croatia). Our location is ideal for exploring both the popular coastal resorts as well as the picturesque inland heart of Istria with its historical hilltop towns of Motovun and Grožnjan.
