Built in the 17th century, with a breath-taking sea view, Pebble Villa provides superior comfort both inside and outside, and because of the unique position it is extremely private.
Carefully renovated, the spacious interior is set over three floors and can comfortably accommodate up to eight guests. There is a separate one bedroom apartment on the ground floor which is ideal for those wishing to holiday together without losing their privacy. The main house has three further bedrooms, a comfortable living room and the kitchen which has a dining table to seat eight.
There are amazing sea views throughout the property and particularly from the top floor.
The outside space is fantastic with a spacious terrace surrounding the pool with sweeping sea and country view, equipped with eight sunbeds and umbrellas. The villa is surrounded by a rich assortment of Mediterranean plants including lemon and olive trees.
The center of Mlini is five minutes away and has much to offer guests: pebble beaches, a waterfront promenade lined with shops, restaurants and cafes, a port with a frequent shuttle boat service to Dubrovnik and Cavtat, and some of the most spectacular natural scenery on the Dubrovnik Riviera. Dubrovnik's historic Old Town is a mere 10-15 minute drive away. The return trip involves a strenuous uphill climb.
NB The internal staircase is open and due to the many levels in the villa and grounds Pebble Villa is not considered suitable for children or those with walking difficulties.
MAP SHOWS APPROXIMATE LOCATION
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.
