Villa Gamud is located in Gruda, Konavle which is a narrow field located between the Snijeznica Mountain and the Adriatic sea. It is a lovely location, surrounded by a well-maintained garden and is ideal for families with children or for groups of friends. It is just 30 kilometres the Old City of Dubrovnik and 15 from Cavtat, the tourist and cultural centre of Konavle. The border of the Republic of Montenegro is only 10 kilometres away which gives you the opportunity to visit popular touristic towns such as Herceg Novi, Kotor, Budva and St. Stefan. It is a perfect place to relax and enjoy nature or a starting place to head off for daily excursions to Bosnian Mostar and Međugorje, Montenegro, or even Split.
The villa is on two levels and is set in a large, fully fenced garden. Inside the villa is comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped and there are doors in the living/dining room opening onto the garden and pool. The two bedrooms on the first floor have terraces which enjoy the beautiful country views.
There are lovely surrounding villages, hills, little rivers, and beaches which guests can explore with bicycles which are available at the villa - there are numerous bicycle paths crossing the region. There is also horse riding a few kilometres from the villa.
The area is steeped in history, you can visit the famous Illyrian Piles in Mikulici, Mithraeum in Mocici or the tombstones in Brotnice and St. Barbara church in Dubravka. You can visit the mills on the river Ljuta or the Fortress Soko Grad.
The beautiful beaches at Molunat and Prevlaka Nature Park are only a few minutes away by car.
For an extra charge a chef can be arranged and it is also possible to arrange for breakfast to be served.

Things we love
"We highly recommend a walk around the walls of Dubrovnik. For around 200 Kuna, you can walk the entire circumference of the city, taking in the spectacular views of the terracotta roofs, interesting architecture, stunning gardens and, of course, the Adriatic Sea beyond. The sea sparkles a beautiful blue and is practically transparent to the sea bed, apparently down to the high salt content, making it very unique indeed."
Things to be aware of
"Eating out in the Old Town, or just outside the walls, can be pricey, especially when the establishments boast such sensational views! However, it is possible to find cheaper places to eat and it is worth exploring the different areas of Dubrovnik such as Gruz and Lapad where you will find many more restaurants and bars to enjoy."
