San Canzian

San Canzian

In the past, the fortified village of Kastion provided a safe haven for local people. Today the collection of cottages is called Hotel San Canzian, but nothing has changed about the hospitality. It is equalled only by its stylish luxury and enchanting location. You can be in Buje, Portorož, Piran and other beautiful villages in no time, and the west coast is also nearby. Be sure to try the homemade olive oil and fig jam!
