What a wonderful welcome into Slovenia!
Everything, from the impeccably clean and fresh room (and outstanding shower!), to the view, the great breakfast and the wonderfully warm and "down-home" reception by Andreja and absolutely everyone associated with Istranova. We also had one of our best dinners of the whole vacation in the restaurant upstairs. We are definitely coming back - and while we're at it, we're getting our hands on some of that fabulous local Istranova olive oil!!
Thanks again, Andreja!!!
Andreja was THE MOST fantastic host we have ever met. Smart, fun, interesting, generous, and kind! The restaurant was incredible and every person on the team was so inviting. The view from the room was beautiful. Istranova is located in one of the most beautiful setting you will ever stay in. I highly recommend staying at Istranova.
Our stay at Istranova in Padna was just great! Everything worked so well. The host herself, the room, the breakfast and the view--- just perfekt. We got help where we needed to. Conversation was very warm, helpful and welcoming with perfect english skills :)
Staying there with the dogs was no problem as well. Everytime again. Hopefully very soon. Two thumbs up!
What an amazing place with amazing people!! We had only planned to stay one night but we ended up staying for a couple more. The hospitality and warm welcomes that we received from Andreja and the entire Istranova team was amazing and out of this world! The food at the restaurant is also incredible and is a great experience. The waiter is so polite and friendly! The food, especially the gnocchi, is incredible and very reasonably priced! The wine and olive oil that they make is also very good! If you're traveling with a vehicle this place is a must stay while visiting Slovenia!! We were sad to leave, but we count ourselves very lucky to have found and experienced Istranova! It's something that we will never forget!! Thanks again!! :)
We have enjoyed our stay in Istranova very much!! It is the most beautiful place, with lovely, sparkly clean accommodation and breathtaking views. Our hosts couldn't be more helpful. We will definitely recommend this place to anybody - especially the ones that look for some peace and relax.
Padna was one of our favorite places to stay in Slovenia. We loved the beautiful pastoral setting and were especially overwhelmed by the delightful gastronomical delight of fresh local mushrooms over fresh pasta. We would go back just to experience that. Next time we will stay longer to enjoy the beautiful room, rolling hills of grape vines and fruit trees and of course, other surprisingly delicious items on the the menu.
Istranova Padna is a 5-star Airbnb. The rooms are spacious, clean and beautiful. The peaceful veranda overlooks a lovely valley of olive trees, grapes and fig trees. Stay more than one night and use it for a base camp that is wonderful to come home to. Be sure to eat at their restaurant for fantastic local faire. We had the local mushrooms and homemade pasta. Don't miss this gem!
Istranova in Padna liegt idyllisch zwischen Olivenhainen, Weinhängen und Wanderwegen. Die schönen, neuen Zimmer haben ein großartiges Badezimmer mit allem Komfort und eine weiträumige Terrasse mit einem traumhaften Blick über das ganz Tal bis hin zur Adria.
Das Essen im dazugehörige Restaurant ist sehr lecker und wird mit hauseigenem Olivenöl zubereitet. Wer mehr Lust auf etwas Trubel hat, ist schnell an der slowenischen Küste oder im schönen Triest.
Wir haben uns in der herzlichen Atmosphäre sehr wohl gefühlt und wünschen dem Istranova-Team viel Erfolg für die Zukunft.
The place and the view are fantastic. Andreja is such a nice host, very supportive and friendly. The place was clean and quiet. Strongly recommended!
The appartment was amazing, recenlty built, everything was perfect. A location is perfect for those who dont want to crowd on the seaside with other tourists. The is really amazing from the balcony, you can see the whole valley. The hosts are really helpful and kind with a likely interesting lifestyle. Thank you very much
Andreja is an extremely friendly and helpful young lady. She lives in a beautiful Tuscany type village Padna in Slovenian Istria on the top of the hill. There you can enjoy stunning views on olive trees around and on the Northern Adriatic sea or the Alps. Andreja's Istranova is fantastic place for a short stop or longer vacations a'la the movie "A Good Year" with Russell Crowe. When you are feed up with Istranova fantastic terrace, fresh air, calmness of the surrounding, delicious food in their osteria, you can spend a day on the nearest beach (6 km air distance) or spend the evening in Portoroz, Koper or Triest..
If you visit Andreja, ask her for fresh vegetables from her garden, she is proud of it. ;)
