The B&B Selanakrasu32 is a typical karst house, fully restored, located in a small Slovenian village, Sela na Krasu, and immersed in the peaceful greenery of the surrounding countryside, close to the Italian border. The newly refurbished house offers 2 rooms on the first floor of the house with a private bathroom and a big living room – the former hay loft - where you can have your breakfast and rest. Our bedrooms are suitable for famililies and groups of friends. Aside from the typical rustic house, you can enjoy a huge garden with fruit trees and a vegetable patch. Only a few yards from the house you will be surprised by the amazing view of the Gulf of Trieste with the beautiful beaches of Duino, Sistiana, Grado. The healthy environment, the tranquillity, the silence and the genuine local food in the nearby goštilne will be the perfect ingredients for a relaxing holiday, with plenty of bike trips and walks waiting for you, and trips to enchanting historic and cultural sites.
Feel free to contact us for any inquiry, should you need advices about itineraries or lifts to/from the airport or the train station.
It was a wonderful sojourn, marred only by the fact that it was too short for my liking; I would have loved to stay much longer.
The location is perfect, tailor-made for day trips to important nearby Italian and Slovene sights (Duino, Trieste, Aquileia - even Venice is close enough for a day trip - and of course the Slovene Karst), it offers absolute peace and quiet during night time, and there is a gorgeous panoramic view of the Adriatic sea from a lawn only 50 metres or so down the road, where you can enjoy unforgettable sunsets, weather-permitting).
The house - formerly an abandoned cattle shed with a hayloft - is a marvel of ingenious renovation, finely attuned to the local architectural tradition.
The interior decoration is worthy of a boutique hotel: mostly local antique furniture, highlighted by colourful touches and unobtrusive modern items, the whole lovingly assembled into a very tasteful, serene yet warm environment which reflects the hosts' attention to detail and highly cultured aesthetic sensibilities. (The amenities include a surprisingly rich little library in the living room, with books in various languages, from Italian to Slovene, from Spanish to English and Dutch. There is a large screen TV - not that we were ever tempted to turn it on, with so many other interesting things to see and do - and the Wi-fi connection is very reliable.)
Last but not least, Francesca and her family (and this includes the cats :)) are the kindest and most accommodating of hosts. (Their rich breakfast often includes delicious home-made baked goods that keep you going for most of the day.) I would love to enjoy their wonderful hospitality again, and certainly plan to do so in the future.
Francesca and Federico were wonderful! They gave us a warm welcome even though we were running behind and got lost on the way. Their home is beautiful! The outside is like a post card and the inside is tastefully modern for such a historic setting. The best of both worlds. The layout is great as well. The loft is spacious and has great view and tons of natural light. The bedrooms are well fitted and the bathroon is modern and bright. I could not have asked for a better find. I only wish we could have stayed longer. Great host, great location, and great setting.
Francesca is een leuke en uitstekende gastvrouw. Ze heeft goede tips. Is geïnteresseerd, maar niet opdringerig. Het huis is ruim, schoon en prettig om in te verblijven. Het adres is prima centraal gelegen. Het ontbijt was elke dag weer een feestje !
We spent a really nice time in Francesca's house!!
The place is very beautiful and clean with a lot of space.
The breakfast is excellent and changes every day.
Francesca is very nice, we talked about different things and she gave us good adresses for a good lunch or buy some wine.
This place was our last step in Slovenia and it was certainly the best!!
Francesca a été une hôtesse parfaite. Nous avons vraiment apprécié son accueil après une longue et dure journée de vélo. Elle nous a offert gracieusement du vin, de la bière et des pâtes à notre arrivée. Nous avons pu bénéficier de tout l'étage du haut, décoré avec soin et goût. Un havre de paix et de tranquillité!
Wij hebben met onze kinderen genoten van ons verblijf in de B&B van Francesca in Sela na krasu. In het zeer smaakvol gerenoveerde huis heb je een ruime verdieping tot je beschikking met een woonkamer, fijn balkon, twee prettige slaapkamers en een badkamer. De verdieping is van alle gemakken voorzien, alles is heel schoon en werkt zoals het moet werken. Francesca heeft ons van een heerlijk ontbijt voorzien. Wij hebben de B&B benut als slaapplek en uitvalsbasis voor bezoeken aan de Adriatische kust, maar komen nog eens terug om van de groene omgeving van Sela na Krasu te genieten.
We had a great stay at Francesca's.
The hosts are really kind, welcoming, and always ready to give precious advices to lighten your trip.
The place is nice, large, luminous, calm and clean. Nice view on the surrounding gardens. You have all the intimacy you may hope. And the breakfast is definitly somptuous!
