Villa Pier is set on a 4000 square meter plot which consists of beautiful, tiered gardens, olive, orange, lemon, pine and other trees. The villa is right on the sea and is close to beautiful Dubrovnik so you really can have the best of both worlds; waking up to bird song, listening to the cicadas and ending the day enjoying the most beautiful sunsets before enjoying the amazing clear night skies with an abundance of stars.
On the ground floor the semi-formal open-plan dining area has a large wooden table and off this is the main open-plan living room with speakers, a CD player and comfortable furnishings, deep cushioned sofas and a coffee table.
The three bedrooms on the first floor all have amazing sea views and the "Blue Bedroom" has a large balcony. The master bedroom has two windows, one with a sea view and one overlooking the pool. The "Yellow Bedroom" has a pine shaded sea view. There is also a large bathroom on this level with 2 square meter rain shower.
On the second floor there is a separate apartment which has access from the house, but also a separate entrance from the garden.
There is a lovely terrace with an open-air summer kitchen equipped with a wooden table and comfortable chairs to accommodate twelve, plus a barbeque. The owner maintains the pool without the use of chemicals which may be suited to those who are more sensitive. Below the villa is a private pier equipped with sun loungers and steps into the sea. In this area there is also jet ski hire available (at extra cost) for the more adventurous!
The owner/manager is on call and will welcome you with wine and goats cheese. He is fluent in English, German, Italian and Spanish and will be on call to help throughout your stay while leaving you to enjoy your holiday in seclusion should you so wish.

Dubrovnik, in the extreme south of Croatia was proclaimed by Lord Byron to be the Pearl of the Adriatic. It really is a special place with magnificent marble streets and baroque buildings glistening in the sunshine. The main pedestrian area is lined with cafes and shops and has magnificent monuments at either end. The architecture is amazing with churches, monasteries, and museums and although Dubrovnik was badly damaged in the siege of the early 90’s, restoration has been painstaking and it is almost impossible to imagine that there was such extensive destruction. Beyond the city are the gorgeous beaches, densely wooded peninsulas and the turquoise Adriatic dotted with lush islands.
There are some great shops including many designer brands and while wandering through the streets you will hear a variety of sounds from the various street performers from Dalmatian vocal groups to chamber music and the magnificent setting of the Rectors...
Palace hosts some of the worlds greatest classical musicians which during the Summer Festival the city’s squares turn into pop-up theatre venues. There are numerous art galleries and for the more energetic some good nightclubs. The restaurants and cocktail bars mostly have amazing views, either out to sea or across the beautiful city.
Once you tire of walking the Dubrovnik cable car takes you to Mount Srd which has the most magnificent views of the city. Or you can take a boat trip and see Dubrovnik from the sea and visit some of the numerous islands. The Mljet National Park is a must for nature loves as is the island of Kor?ula, the birth place of Marco Polo. Lokrum (The Island of Love) is close to the old city, this magical place is steeped in history and legends. The cuisine is excellent with Dalmatian smoked ham, cheeses, smoked meat and stews along with pastas and local lamb.
The world's second longest wall (after the Great Wall of China) is the wall of Ston, the small town famous, among other things, for shellfish and in particular oysters. On the road to Ston is the Arcadian Trsteno Arboretum, where one of the most beautiful women of the European Renaissance, the red-haired poetess Cvijeta Zuzori? wrote her rhymes. Take a walk under the crowns of ancient trees and see your reflection in the Neptune and Nymphs Fountain. The Pelješac Peninsula is the best-known wine-growing area in the south of Croatia, where you can enjoy the typical Plavac Mali wine and truffles.
