Villa Salome is a traditional stone farmhouse nestling in a small valley containing three farms, producing olives, wine and fruit. It is located just outside Broce, a Dalmatian fishing village 45 minute drive west of Dubrovnik. The villa is in a peaceful rural location offering complete seclusion and the terraced garden has beautiful views and glimpses of the nearby sea, visible through the tall cypress trees. There is a large outdoor kitchen for barbecues and other food preparation. The covered loggia gives welcome relief from the heat of high summer. A car is essential, although the lively town of Ston with its cafes, numerous restaurants, art galleries and shops is just a few minutes drive away.

We had a fabulous week...
I just wanted to let you know that we had a fabulous week in your house. It is ideal for a group like us and the location is perfect both because of the scenery of the house and the central place not far from all interesting sites.
We had perfect weather, a great host and it all worked out very good.

Lazy days around the pool
Very comfortable villa, homely and well equipped. Well situated just outside Ston, so good access to main road to Dubrovnik and
also the Peljesac Peninsula. We enjoyed travelling around, as well as lots of lazy days around the pool. Our housekeeper Ivona was
very helpful and lovely, and kept the house really clean. My son really enjoyed being able to watch the first series of Game of
Thrones every evening, lots of DVDs and books to choose from. We were sorry to leave.

About location:

Enjoyed Prapatno Beach just down the road, as well as Orebic and Ston, although we didn't manage to walk along the wall as it was
too hot!

We had the best time and are sure to return.
The Villa was the perfect holiday destination for us and we loved Ston and the surrounding area. What a bonus to find out that the local sea is teaming with oysters and mussels, needless to say we took full advantage of all the seafood and local wine on offer !!!

What a great job you have done with the villa, layout, inside facilities, pool and outside areas are first class.

... fresh figs from the tree for breakfast every morning - what a treat!!!
The photos don't do it justice! Very spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The pool and various terraces were all very much appreciated (as was the air conditioning!). And fresh figs from the tree for breakfast every morning - what a treat!!!
A couple of very minor things: the grill function on the oven didn't work properly and the shower in en-suite bathroom, in the twin room was a mere trickle. We would have no hesitation in recommending both the villa and the company and we hope to return soon. Many thanks for a wonderfully relaxing stay.

About location:

Beautifully peaceful and secluded yet only a 5 minute drive to the local amenities. Perfect location for exploring the peninsula. We enjoyed visits to Mljet and Korcula. The beach at Prapratno was lovely for swimming (though busy). Late afternoon drinks at Konoba Mandrac in Broce was one of the highlights of our holiday (and the food was also great).

A great place to come with a group of friends or family
I visited Villa Salome with a group of friends in April. It is an easy drive along the coast from either Dubrovnik or Split, situated just far enough away from the thronging masses of Game of Thrones enthusiasts to allow you to completely relax. The villa is well kitted-out with comfy beds and a generous living space. The kitchen has so much gear that even the most exacting cook should be able to prepare gourmet meals - try the oysters from Mali Ston - they're out of this world. The villa sits in the tree covered folds of the mountains that rise from the sea in this area and it is only a five minute stroll to the nearest paddling spot. There are some stunning secluded beaches a little further afield (if you're feeling brave in your hire car). It would be serenely quiet in the evening if it weren't for the nightjars, jackels and Scops owls...This place is a great place to come with a group of friends or family - it's not in the middle of a bustling town with a throbbing nightlife, but if you can live without that, it is the sort of place you would want to keep coming back to time and again.

The villa was excellent and fulfilled our expctions
The villa was very well described and fulfilled all our expectations.

About location:

We did not stir far from it as the children loved the pool. We climbed the Ston walls and visited two recommended restaurants one in Ston and one in Mali Ston.

Beautiful secluded villa combining easy access to the sea and surrounded by mountains.Must walk the walls in Ston make sure you check ahead if you are going over to Mali Ston the gate is open at the other end or be prepared for a long walk back!
A car is essential to see the real beauty of the Croatian Peninsula.
Villa Salome was truly beautiful, home from home in the sunshine.

We had a most wonderful time in Villa Salome and the standard of the villa was very high. It felt like we actually staying in someone's lovely home. We loved the books, the picture etc. that really lend the place a personal touch. We were also very impressed with the equipment (from cutlery to pool chairs) at Villa Salome, which was all very high quality and there was plenty of it. The local care taker was wonderful and she was so helpful. The location of the villa is stunning and we loved its secludedness and yet we had ready access to restaurants and food shopping in Ston. A fantastic place to use as a base for lots of exploration in and around the area. We were very happy with our stay at Villa Salome and can highly recommend it.

Nice change from Greece. We stayed in the villa at the beginning of July for a two week family holiday. We had never visited Croatia before and were pleased that the peninsula, the aquamarine sea, the seafood and the historical towns were all as lovely as people had said they would be. The beautifully renovated villa is very well equipped, very clean and comfortable with plenty of places to sit in shade or sun and relax in peace and quiet. A short walk away is the beautiful and quiet village of Broce with its jetties which you can swim off or small stony beaches. We often caught the sunset down there with a picnic hamper and swimming things. No restaurants there so very quiet but for more life the lovely old town of Ston is a short and stunning 5 minute drive or half hour stroll across the salt pans. Climb the walls to Mali Ston on a cooler morning, it is worth it. Having travelled all over the peninsula and visited Dubrovnik which is a must, we decided the villa, Broce, Ston and Kobas were our favourite places and all on our doorstep. There are plenty of quiet secluded beaches to find if you want to explore. If you like to get away from the more bustling, touristy type of beach/villa holiday this Croatian experience is the place for you!

We had a wonderful experience there. The villa itself is first class with excellent decor, wonderful layout, a wonderful view and well positioned for peace/tranquillity whilst still having great restaurants and beaches only a drive away. We really enjoyed it. Majority of the family want to go back there next year, with my son being the exception. This is purely because he would like it to be on the beach! I would also call out the quality of the assistance from the couple looking after the villa. They were always available, offered advice and were extremely friendly. The local area around Mali Ston, Ston and the whole of the Peljasec peninsula was excellent as well. Overall, a wonderful experience.

Mali Ston castle and village
The picturesque town of Ston with its small sister town of Mali Ston are picturesque fortified medieval towns standing either end of the narrow isthmus that joins the Peljesac peninsula to the mainland. Rich in history they are places of culinary excellence and several renowned seafood restaurants are there. Prapratno Cove, close to Ston, provides one of the finest sandy beaches in Croatia. Dubrovnik is within 40 minutes drive down the spectacular coast road. The Dubrovnik Republic acquired control over Peljesac in 1333 and proceeded to construct massive fortifications in the form of a 5.5 kilometre wall spanning the isthmus and circling the towns of Ston and Mali Ston that stood on the coast at either end of the wall. The wall was built between 1336 and 1358 and is considered to be the longest defensive wall in Europe. Above Mali Ston and forming part of the town's fortification stands the impressive five-towered castle, Koruna. Mali Ston itself is laid out in terraces rising up the hillside and overlooking the sheltered harbour with its landmark circular Toljevac Tower built in 1478. Just across the isthmus lies Ston, laid out to a grid plan in the 14th century, the town is reminiscent of Dubrovnik and contains some fine public buildings dating from the 15th and 16th centuries. The ancient wall has been restored and is open to the public. The walk from Ston to Mali Ston provides wonderful views of the coastline and towns below. The salt pans at Ston, still operating today, are estimated to have generated two thirds of the Dubrovnik Republic's revenue in the 14th century. Nearby the small community of Broce, reached by a causeway running beside the Ston channel, was established in 1349 and has historic buildings and a delightful beach.

Eating out
Ston and Mali Ston are places of culinary excellence. There are renowned seafood restaurants, notably Bota Sare (occupying and old salt warehouse) and Kapetanova Kuca (Captain's House), on the seafront of Mali Ston. The town is famous for its oysters harvested from the local oyster beds. You can sample the excellent local white wine, Posip, and two great reds: Dingac and Postup.

Beaches
There are beaches at Mali Ston and Broce while Prapratno Cove, close to Ston, provides one of the finest sandy beaches in Croatia. The Peljesac peninsula contains some of the very best beaches that can be found on the Adriatic. A 30 minute drive up the peninsula will take you to the delightful village of Zuljana. The village houses front a small harbour and sandy beach which offers excellent swimming against a spectacular backdrop of woodland and mountains.

Mali Ston

Dubrovnik Airport is 1 hour drive from Mali Ston. An alternative is to fly to Split Airport and drive the 3 hours down the spectacular coast road, or the slightly quicker route down the inland motorway, from Split to Mali Ston. For travellers with some time to spare, the Split option provides the chance to visit Diocletian’s Palace in the centre of Split or take a full day detour on the southerly route by crossing by ferry to Supetar on the island of Brac and returning from Supetar at the southern end of the island to Makarska on the mainland.

Dubrovnik Airport

Dubrovnik Airport is located near the town of Cavtat to the south of Dubrovnik.
