A small stone house that was once a sheep pen for the owners of the Big House next door, has just been refurbished to a very high standard. The little house has been sensitively restored and turned into a stylish and comfortable seaside pad, with a lot of outdoor garden space. It is located at the highest point of the village/town, just by the ancient stone wall which surrounds the whole of the town and happens to be the longest medieval town wall in the whole of Europe! The villa has wonderful views of the red Mediterranean roofs and the sea below, which can be enjoyed from the house and from the large front terrace. The villa is approached by the steps, which lead up through the village street and past a small church. Then you arrive to a mysterious green gate set in an old stone wall, and the little villa is hidden inside behind lavender and rosemary bushes.

Villa Studio - Mali Ston

Accommodation

Ground Floor

The whole house is arranged on one floor. The front of the studio has two doors, which lead out onto the terrace and excellent sea views. The largest part of the ground floor is taken up by the bedroom and sitting room, which are fitted within one large and airy living space. The white wooden flooring, white raised ceiling and white beams contribute to the bright and summery feel of the villa. In this room you have a large new double bed, with all bed linen provided and plenty of storage space. A stylish cool sofa can be pulled out into an accessory double bed, so maximum four people can be accommodated. The owners have added special touches by chosen pieces of antique furniture, such as bedside cabinets, mirrors and chests. It is a great space to relax and experience the feel of a cosy cottage, but also the open air and fresh scents of the Mediterranean garden. The villa has high speed WiFi. Off the living room there is a well-equipped white kitchen, with an electric cooker, fridge-freezer and dishwasher. Cooking utensils and plates, glassware and cutlery are provided. The bathroom is also accessed from the living room. It is a gleaming white and fresh bathroom, with simple white tiles, white basin and a large white bath, with a shower combined. Plenty of bath towels and beach towels are provided.

Outside

Garden and Terrace The house and the terrace are equally important, since the terrace provides another living area, paved with ancient stone slabs, a dining table, sun loungers, sun umbrellas, set among the fragrant greenery of rosemary and lavender, with the sea glimmering through the green hedge. Behind the garden wall, you can see the charming village church and cypress trees. At the back of the Studio Villa there is good size garden, where you can relax and enjoy the view of the green hills of the Peljesac peninsula.

Additional Information

  • End of the week cleaning is included
  • Cars should be left in the free car park at the entrance to the village, approximately three minutes walk to the villa

Local Amenities

A five minute walk takes you to the kiosk which sells fresh oysters and mussels caught in the local area. You can also get fresh fruit and vegetables there. In the town of Ston, which can be reached on foot in 10-15 minutes, or a couple of minutes by car, there are two supermarkets, a fresh food market, an excellent bakery and a very good wine shop, as well as many really good restaurants, bank, post office, doctor's surgery and a tourist office.

We loved this little property, both for itself and as to its location. It was ideal for the two of us. The owner could not have been more charming or generous.

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.
