VILLA ANTIQUA
near Dubrovnik

€4745 - €7000 per week

A 17th century nobleman's summer residence outside Dubrovnik, recently expertly restored and transformed into a happy family home. Six bedrooms, six bathrooms, garden and heated swimming pool, air conditioned, high speed internet. Beach and mooring 10 metres away. Meals cooked on request. BEDROOMS : 7SLEEPS : 12

The villa originates from 17th century, when it used to be a summer residence of an old noble Dubrovnik family whose custom was to leave the hot and busy town in the summer, and decamp to their summer home by the sea, where they could relax and cool themselves in the clear waters of the Adriatic. The villa has been owned by a bishop, a philosopher and a scientist and a series of old and recognised aristocracy, who originated from 12th century. It is located about six kilometres north of old Dubrovnik on the estuary of a small river and the Adriatic. The present owners are Literature professors and architects and have translated their love for the old villa into repair and revival of its original condition, and adding interior facilities, such as bathrooms, air conditioning, swimming pool and a gourmet kitchen. The villa has sea views, wonderful proportions and charm, but rather than being opulent, it is understated, sunny, welcoming and very comfortable. On your arrival, you will enjoy your welcome pack of the traditional home made local cake, jam and excellent wine.

GUEST REVIEWS

Just a quick note to let you know we had a wonderful week at Villa Antiqua. It's a beautiful house and very much a family home and we were made very welcome by Patricia and her family. There was a welcome supper for us on the first evening, and the villa was cleaned every day, and linens changed midweek. It suited our group extremely well. Dubrovnik is a fantastic city, and we felt welcomed and relaxed to enjoy it!

I could not recommend this villa more highly.

Nine of us arrived to a spotlessly clean, beautiful and spacious villa submersed in history. Our hostess showed us around and explained the history of the villa including a lovely welcome meal.

There is plenty of room around the huge sitting rooms and kitchens for everyone to have their own space and relax. The pool area is fabulous with a great view of the cruises coming into Dubrovnik. The location is great. We drove into the old town a few times or at night we jumped on the bus that takes around 20 mins. The local restaurant serves lovely fresh food and the staff were great fun. It's only a km down the road.

Have to mention the gardens and terraces. The range of flowers, herbs and spices growing are fantastic and the one night we did cook in, we made a beautiful garden salad from the garden. The main kitchen is stocked with all cooking utensils you would need. In the rooms, we were given loads of towels and they were changed for us during the week also.

I could not recommend this villa more highly. Our hosts could not have done more for us. Thanks for a great week!
