Mali Ston, Dubrovnik Region
€450 - €1120 per week
Villa Katarina is situated within the ancient walls of Mali Ston. Unusually for a town house of this type, it is detached and stands within its own plot with a small terrace/garden area around it. Mali Ston is a picturesque fortified medieval town just 40 minutes drive from Dubrovnik and less than an hour from Dubrovnik airport. Villa Katarina is a listed building that has been sensitively renovated. It is now a luxury house that retains its original character. The area of Mali Ston within the town walls is arranged on terraces with pedestrian passageways between them.

Villa Katarina was a great spot to stay!
Villa Katarina was a great spot to stay! We spent a week there in July 2016 as a family (2 adults & 2 kids aged 10 & 15) and it was perfect: the seafood and the Villa in Mali Ston, Prapratno Beach, Zuljana, the Walls - just everything! The Villa was very clean, well equipped and the astonishing sea view is still in our minds!
Great & lovely base to stay! Just an hour to Dubrovnik & two to Mostar. The Ferry to Miljet only 3km away as well as Prapratno Beach. Great seafood in Mali Ston is recommended as well as hiking the Ston Walls!

... sympathetically renovated using local stone and timber
Villa Katarina is an old tower in Mali Ston, sympathetically renovated using local stone and timber to very high standards. The kitchen is well equipped with John Lewis pans and crockery and cutlery with familiar UK white goods. The lounge is comfortable with a TV and WiFi and above it the bedroom and en-suite are light and airy with views over the Ston Canal. The villa offers a superb base from which to explore the hidden gems on the Pelješac peninsula with its many excellent vineyards and secluded beaches. Dubrovnik is close enough for an absorbing day out, but choose a cool day! Eating out is cheap and the quality of the local seafood is superb. The Kapetanova Kuce is a stroll from the villa and has a great atmosphere with food to match. This year we discovered a new restaurant in nearby Broce. There's only one, so go find it for yourself and meet the fisherman who opened and runs it. Try the lobster which he keeps in a cage in the sea right next to where you eat! There are several islands to visit by ferry Mljet being closest. Korcula is further away but rewards the effort with a great drive to catch the ferry at Orebic. We have returned to Katarina for the last 7 years and each time we find things that we didn't see before. We always seem to be drawn to return.

So good we came back 5 times
There is so much to see and discover in the area around Ston and Mali Ston. It has taken us repeated visits to even start to do it justice. There are islands to see, eating places to try and gorgeous deserted beaches to track down. Villa Katarina is a gem, set above the small fishing village of Mali Ston. The facilities are superb and the views compliment them. Down at the water's edge are two excellent restaurants. I recommend the Kapetanova Kuca. Will we be going back? Oh yes!

We loved our first visit to Croatia. What a perfect home to base our travels and adventures. We love, love, loved Croatia and will never forget this trip or this idyllic house.

What a lovely place to stay - we would highly recommend Villa Katarina. This villa was decorated so beautifully, it was a pleasure to stay in. It is detached and self contained on 3 floors, so was really nice and quiet and private. The bedroom especially was lovely, really spacious and comfortable with a very large bathroom attached. The living room was also bright and airy and comfortable. The outlook from the rooms were just lovely. The lady who looks after the villa very thoughtfully came and opened the shutters and windows ahead of our arrival to get the house aired, which was a nice touch and appreciated. The owner had also left a very helpful guide giving some good advice about where to visit. The only thing missing would be a garden or roof top terrace, but outdoor space wasn't greatly missed as the weather wasn't great during our stay, as we had quite a lot of rain. My partner also greatly appreciated the Wi-Fi and we both liked the fact that some TV channels were English for a relaxing hour after sightseeing and before heading out for dinner.....

We visited Croatia in October 2013. Croatian Villa Holidays rented us a wonderful house Villa Katarina in peaceful Mali Ston. They made a lot of good work for us because we are very sensitive for fragrance. You can hardly find this kind of lovely service in other places. And everything was working perfectly in this beautiful house with sea view.

Beautiful country, nice area, incredible sea and wonderful sweet house. We discover Croatia and now we hope to come back.
Catherine and Phillipe (France) 29/08/2013
We had a wonderful time in Mali Ston and in your house. Comfort and decoration are outstanding! Everything is there and we felt like we were at home but with an amazing view of the sea and the hills. Many thanks to offer us such a place so far away from the crowd.

We felt very much part of the neighbourhood.
Very pleasant stay at Villa Katarina enjoying the lovely view over the strait that greeted us each morning. We felt very much part of the neighbourhood. An authentic and welcome change from the sterile tourist villa.
