Villa Joanna is lovely and ideal for a large family. The villa is up about 45 steps from the excellent restaurant. A key usefully locks the gate into the garden, which is nice because most people would hang out (with their electronic gadgets) at the front of the house, on the terrace, which has a fantastic sea and island view.

The plunge pool was excellent for keeping the children 8-15, and us, happy and it was used by us (and cleaned by the owner) daily. It is behind the house, up about 15 steps from the shower, well within earshot, and above that is a sun bed area, with a large, firm, plastic covered platform under shade, and sun-loungers. When we were not in or around the pool, barn swallows drank from it. There is lots of greenery around, in pots and beds, with some fruit - the owner brought us gorgeous figs from somewhere in the garden at the end of a couple of his morning visits, with fresh bread. He also made delicious home-made liqueurs, which we enjoyed. The exercise machine, in one of the ground floor bedrooms, was well-used. All the rooms were comfortable and airy. The owner of the villa, gave us a pretty comprehensive handover and she had also collected a large pile of tourist leaflets, books and maps. We barbecued, in the conventional way, in the barbecue room but, because we were only there for a week, and also dined in the restaurant twice, we didn't manage to have a Croatian BBQ - shame!

The route down to the little cove, with its shingle beach and concrete platform, with a ladder into the sea, was another 75 steps, including the underpass. It was definitely worth the effort - pretty, crystal clear water - and never over-crowded. The supermarket was a bit further away than we had been led to believe - 5-6 km and over the bridge, quite near the fruit and flower market. We went by taxi though there is also an infrequent minibus to Gruz, which can be used. We never found the shop and bakery at 200 metres though there was a small supermarket 3 km away in the next village and we did not need a doctor or pharmacy. Throughout our week, we used the Blue and Yellow local taxis frequently, which worked out at about the same price as hiring cars. We were at Villa Joanna during the Olympics and it was fun to support Croatia as well as Team GB and to compare notes each morning when the bread arrived, with our charming host.

About location:

Beautiful location, far away enough from the road, which is quite busy, not to hear traffic noise. The Konoba Dubrovnik is a very popular restaurant and its charming staff serve the delicious fresh fish and seafood with a smile. We visited Dubrovnik when the cruise ships had departed - there was a timetable in the villa and on the Monday, no cruise ships were visiting. We spent a day on Lokrum, walking, lunching and swimming - lovely. Copacobana Beach gave the children an hour of exhausted fun on its bouncy castle in the sea.

Described as the pearl of the Adriatic, Dubrovnik will not fail to impress with great City walls rising out of the brilliant Adriatic against a backdrop of steep mountainsides. Within the walls of the old town are some fine architecture and lively streets crammed with shops, cafes and restaurants. Walk the City walls to enjoy the beautiful roofscape of the old town and the seascape beyond. Visit the Franciscan and Dominican monasteries and stroll down the cobbled streets and alleyways or relax in the cafes. During the summer months the Dubrovnik festival hosts concerts on most nights providing music of all types. The wonderfully preserved fortifications and atmospheric squares and alleyways of Dubrovnik old town were the perfect setting for Kings Landing in the Game of Thrones. Croatian Villa Holidays can arrange Game of Thrones tours that will guide you through all the locations that played a significant part in Game of Thrones. Dubrovnik has an equally dramatic real history, We can arrange private or group tours that will introduce you to Dubrovnik's history from the middle ages to its recent history when for eight month from October 1991 to May 1992  the City was under siege and shelled from the surrounding mountain tops. 

Gruz is the port area of Dubrovnik where the cruise ships dock and where mega-yachts tie up at the quayside around this large and sheltered natural harbour. The gentle banks of Gruz harbour was where the Dubrovnik noblemen chose to build their fine summer palaces to escape the heat and bustle of the ancient city. Many of these stunning Renaissance buildings are still standing and some have been renovated as luxury hotels or spectacular private houses. Today Gruz is a shopping and commercial centre for Dubrovnik as well as a living museum of Renaissance architecture.

Eating Out
Dubrovnik offers everything from sophisticated restaurants in spectacular waterside locations to simple bistros in alleyways and side streets of the old town. The choice is endless. We can provide you with our recommendations.

In Dubrovnik there are popular beaches all around the Lapad Peninsula, for example Copacabana beach where you can relax in a beach club environment with cocktail bar and comfortable sunloungers. From the old town harbour ferries go regularly to the small island of Lokrum just a few minutes away, where Dubrovnik people traditionally like to go for a swim. For a relaxing afternnon you can stroll around this wooded island with its park like landscape and stop for a swim anywhere around the coastline.

A short distance down the coast from Dubrovnik there are sandy and shingle beaches at Kupari and Mlini.

The nearby islands of Lopud, Sipan and Kolocep are easily reached by ferry from Dubrovnik. Much quieter but still historically interesting. Lopud has one of the best sandy beaches in the region which can be reached by walking across the narrow neck of the island from the town of Lopud. The charming harbour front village of Suderad on Sipan has a well preserved fortified palace from the 15th century.

About 10km from Dubrovnik is the famous landscaped garden and arboretum of Trsteno a Mediterranean garden with a fine array of trees and breathtaking views. The gardens were created by the nobleman Ivan Gucetic in the grounds of his summer villa built between 1494 and 1502. Tresteno gardens was the setting for High Gardens for the filming of Game of Thrones
