We arrived at our Villa after 30 hours travelling time, completely exhausted. To be welcomed so warmly and with genuine enthusiasm was such a relief. Robert carried our two suitcases up 3 steep flights of steps to our room and what a room it was!!! We were expecting (as is often the case) that arriving late would result in the worst room in the complex, but the room I booked and had only viewed online was better than expected. The view from our balcony was breath taking. The kitchen stayed open to feed us and we felt very welcomed.
There is a shuttle service to Dubrovnik and the shops around 4 times per day, even picking us up at midnight after dinner. Breakfast is not continental it is a cooked breakfast to order, with many choices. The people who run this establishment cannot do enough for you, whether driving you around, giving you language lessons, directions to anywhere and even finding hard to procure items. This is a much more economical option than staying in Dubrovnik central as the free shuttle service enables you to stay in a beautiful location out of town (3.5km) without being inconvenienced.
Thank you to the wonderful staff (Ivana, Robert and Vlako apologies not sure of the spelling) who made us not want to leave this beautiful city. I would recommend this to anyone who is visiting Dubrovnik it was an amazing experience and one I will cherish.
