Welcome to Istria and our „Casa romantica LA PARENZANA“!
You are warmly invited to the „Casa Romantica Parenzana“. 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 family owned „Casa Romantica Parenzana“ is located on the „Parenzana“ an old disused Austro Hungarian railway line which 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.

Our cuisine culture is based on providing natural, healthy food, prepared and served in the traditional yet sophisticated way!
