The town of Cavtat is gorgeous. Elegant stone houses built in the past by well to do sea captains nestle around two shimmering blue bays, among the pine trees and walled town gardens. The seafront is lined with imposing palm trees amongst which there are shops, cafes, waterfront restaurants and yachts moored in the harbour.The beach is 200 metres away from Villa Coral, which is one of the classic charming old town houses with its private terraced garden.

A lovely old property, sympathetically renovated ...
A lovely old property, sympathetically renovated and tucked away in the old town. Very comfortable and everything provided. Secluded, private gardens were a treat. The family owners couldn't have been more charming or helpful.
Cavtat is a lovely little town, a very welcome refuge away from the crowds in Dubrovnik, which is easily accessible by boat or bus. Plenty of great restaurants locally to try, just minutes from the villa.

Couldn't ask for anything more
Just wanted to thank you for your attention to our rental of Villa Coral in Cavtat. Everything went smoothly, the property owners were helpful and accommodating. The villa itself is lovely. Couldn't ask for anything more....except maybe less rain! Thank you once again.
