The ancient cottage Villa Salvia is an 80 square metre stone house recently restored by a family who live and work in Dubrovnik. The owners love local tradition, and are keen to preserve the little village and its authentic charm. If you are looking for a character cottage, with great views and peace all around it, this is the villa for you. The beach is just a few minutes drive away and is clean and very uncrowded, and if you drive five minutes in the opposite direction, you will find some exceptional restaurants in Ston and Mali Ston. Civilisation is just at your doorstep.


Ground floor

The house is on a slope. A few stone steps lead to a hallway which is connected to a games room with a table football, darts, TV and an old bread oven and a fireplace where all the cooking was done in the past. To the other side a few steps lead down to a good size sitting room with a kitchen and a dining area. A leather sofa and armchairs are good for the six people, and there is a direct access to a large outdoor terrace which has stunning views over the countryside. The country kitchen is equipped with a fridge/freezer, cooker, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, kettle, coffee maker, cooking utensils and tableware. A bathroom/washing machine is also on the ground floor.

First floor

The first floor has three double bedrooms which share a bathroom. The three bedrooms have comfortable new double beds and a lot of wardrobe space and lovely views. All bed linen and bathroom towels are provided.


This villa has a good size garden arranged as terraces supported by traditional stone walls. The focal point is a lovely pool from where you can enjoy an amazing view over vineyards and olive groves, and have a swim at night when it is still warm. The garden has a barbecue with a dining table for six, and sun beds and parasols are provided.

Comfortable villa, lovely small pool...
Comfortable villa, lovely small pool and good outside space. Many areas to sit or eat in the shade with table football, table tennis, disco!- all there. The owner is very nice, he met us in Dubrovnik to hand over keys and give directions, and he always answered questions
quickly. Air-con throughout was just powerful enough to keep villa comfortable. Ston/Mali Ston only a 10 minute drive for supermarkets/restaurants etc. An information pack would have been useful, with beach/day trip/shopping/restaurant suggestions. Also with doctor/emergency phone numbers etc - just for peace of mind. We did most of our exploring with guide books which isn't the same as local knowledge. Also the owner's contact details beforehand, he would have bought us first night food/drink if he'd been asked. Arriving after 9pm all shops will be closed.

About location:

Restaurants good in Mali Ston, beaches very crowded because they are small. Dubrovnik overrun by tourists and very expensive. Worth driving further up peninsula for better beaches and pretty towns.

A family home with everything you need
A real family home with everything you need. Great variety of eating areas within the villa. Pool is fabulously located and plenty of
shade if needed. Parking is good at back of villa. Owner very helpful and responsive.

About location:

Secluded and private yet with easy access to local amenities
A perfect holiday destination
Villa Salvia was a perfect holiday destination for us; a group of three middle aged couples who were not looking for tourist crowds of busy nightlife. Car is essential to reach the isolated location. Villa is located in a very small rural village (six or seven houses), supermarkets and restaurants are at least 5km away. This was perfect for us; the villa provided us the privacy we wanted, away from noise and crowds. The (small) new pool, the patio with sun beds, BBQ, outdoor seating areas, three refrigerators (one of them by the pool/BBQ), herbs growing in the garden, a separate toilet and outdoor shower by the pool, shades, washing machine, dishwasher-all these things made our one week holiday in Croatia perfect.

About location:

Detailed instructions to find the restaurants and the rumoured quiet beach mentioned in the description, would have helped! We did find a steep hidden path to rough rocky stand to jump to the sea, but it was definately not a beach. Perhaps even a folder giving all the information about the villa as well as the neighbourhood/surroundings would be a good idea. Still, a very relaxing and functional place if you value privacy with no noise.”
Thanks for a great stay!
The house was magnificent, the pool was amazing. Location was also perfect - very close to Ston and Mali Ston - lots of great restaurants (esp Stagnum in Ston which was our favourite). Highly recommend, will be returning.

Lovely villa which has everything you need and more.
Lovely villa which has everything you need and more. Absolutely every cooking utensil you could think of in the kitchen, as well as in the wonderful outdoor state of the art BBQ (the advert should really mention this more I think). The outdoor fridge, outdoor toilet, tennis table table and eating area really made the outside - and of course the lovely pool with the adjacent table recliners in the shade.

The bedrooms had all that you needed, including air-con (although sometimes it seemed to go in the middle of the night for some reason but it didn't actually matter, even though it was 30 degrees). The generous owner even provided washing tablets for the washing machine and dish washer, bin bags, washing up liquid and cloth, kitchen roll and lots of toilet roll etc - these things don't cost that much extra but really make all the difference when you are flying in and don't have to panic about buying them on your first day. It makes you feel like you are really welcome and that corners aren't being cut. I could go on - suffice to say we loved it!

About location:

Mali Ston was the most marvellous location. Beautiful bay at Mali Ston with Oyster Farm trip (wonderful), sea kayaking, sea food restaurants and of course the walled town and walls leading over the hill to Ston. Handy local shops for everything you need in Ston. And the Salt pans to visit too there. Wonderful swimming and snokelling in local bays. Only an hour to Dubrovnik. In the wine region. I can't think of a better location - we were delighted.

The villa was perfect. We had the most amazing holiday
We have just returned from Villa Salvia. It was absolutely fantastic. We had the most amazing holiday, the villa was perfect and the owner was so helpful.

Thank you and your team at Croatian Villa Holidays for all your assistance and for the information for the Dubrovnik guide which was also brilliant.

The whole holiday and experience was fab
I just wanted to thank everyone who helped along the way to book Apartment Iris and Villa Salvia, along with our airport transfer and car hire. The whole holiday and experience was fab and and the planning was effortless. Well almost effortless as we had to make decisions as to which villa to choose! We returned to the uk yesterday and we are wishing we were still in Croatia.Thanks again

The house and setting are charming, with everything we needed for a peaceful retreat. Outside, the pool is poised over the village giving charming rural views. The pressure jet means that some 'against the current' exercise can be taken, while the angled steps enable you to sit in the cool water and just read a book. One of the highlights of the property are that it has a series of outdoor courtyards and areas so you can choose sun or shade, depending on the time of day. There is a table tennis table for the cooler hours and shady nooks where you can sit at a table with a glass of wine and a backgammon board. At night the pool terrace is ideal for stargazing or watching the moon rise over the mountainside. The interior is comfortable, with effective air conditioning and good-sized bedrooms for a holiday property. Shuttered windows give the option of keeping the rooms cool in the heat of the day, or enjoying the views from all sides.
This is a rural property and guests should be prepared for a short drive to Ston to collect shopping or dine out in the good selection of local restaurants. Exploring the local wineries is also highly recommended.

We have had a wonderful time in Villa Salvia
We have had a wonderful time and we are all decided that we would like to come back and stay here again. Thank you and hope to see you again some time.
We had a great time !
The villa is in a great spot to hit Dubrovnik, Korcula and Mostar. We enjoyed the restaurants in Ston and the beach at Prapratno.
The villa will be a little remote for some in a tiny hamlet where only an old couple seem to actually live !
The owner has done a great job restoring the villa and the outside space is lovely. Enjoyed the pool, bbq area, outdoor fridge and shower !
We had a fabulous stay at Villa Salvia
The location is remote but quiet and very authentic. A 15 minute walk takes you to a completely empty beach shared only by boat users and two houses, the water is crystal clear and great for snorkelling - but watch out for the sea urchins!
The property is well equipped and it is clearly the owner's family home with memories all around you. He was a charming host and took real care of us especially when fire storms broke out and came within 10 km of the area. Ston and Mali Ston are perfectly decent places to get all your daily amenities from and Mali Ston has a couple of excellent harbour side restaurants.
All in all a fantastic holiday.
We had probably our best holiday in Europe.
The villa was great - we wanted for nothing more. The location was very peaceful, yet close to a great beach, historic towns, superb restaurants (and amazingly cheap too), and only an hour's drive from Dubrovnik. The owner was a great host, and his neighbours were very friendly (although many lost-in-translation moments as you can imagine!).

In all, wishing we had booked 2 weeks instead of just 1.
Just to let you know we returned on Saturday from a brilliant holiday at Villa Salvia. The owner was delightful and very helpful, the villa well equipped and peaceful. We certainly intend to return to Croatia so may be in touch for next year!

Very comfortable cottage, well equipped and in a lovely quiet location with beautiful views. People in village very friendly and well located for Ston and Mali Ston which were interesting places to visit with well equipped supermarkets and variety of restaurants. Dubrovnik about 45 minutes away. Very convenient for ferries to the beautiful island of Mljet.
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.

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.
