Villa Grande, Dubrovnik, Croatia

Property ref: CR941

We truly believe this is one of the most special properties in our portfolio.

Built in 1936 the property survived two wars almost unscathed thanks to the dedication of the original owner and her loyal maid, whose grandchildren now run the estate. The original owners were members of the aristocracy and their house was renowned for its memorable parties. The history of the property is amazing and spans generations of one family's happiness and grief. 

Today the villa offers the ultimate in luxury and comfort, with every detail carefully thought out and executed. It has been cleverly furnished in eclectic style, using contemporary décor and furniture by famous Croatian designers.

There is a freshwater swimming pool surrounded by a spacious terrace which has an enchanting view of the Old Town. Next to the pool are several comfortable loungers and a teak dining table seating six – the perfect place for al fresco dining.

After dinner guests can withdraw to the “smoking room” which connects to the dining room which has an extensive collection of wines of the region. There is also a professional kitchen – if you wish we can arrange a cook to prepare some of Nonna’s (grandma’s) recipes.

The suite on the first floor has a spacious salon opening onto a terrace which has stunning views of the island of Lokrum and the Old Town of Dubrovnik. The salon leads to the dining room and there is a working service elevator to bring food up from the kitchen. There is a double bedroom with the most amazingly comfortable bed!

There are two suites on the second floor.  The first is bright and airy and is dominated by a large and very comfortable bed. It has a balcony with impressive views of Lokrum Island and the Old Town. Hidden behind a wall of sanded glass is an amazing turquoise, mosaic tiled bathroom with a luxurious bath and shower. The second suite has a bedroom with a king size bed and the same fantastic views. There is a pretty green, mosaic tiled bathroom.

There is a two person sauna on the second floor (a masseuse can be arranged at an extra cost) along with a guest shower room and the “Mirror Room” which has a luxurious bathroom which connects to the attic suite via a spiral staircase.

The attic is futuristic and is decorated entirely in white with a king size bed and en-suite shower room.

The villa is surrounded by terraces brimming with aromatic herbs and spices, which guests can pick to turn an ordinary salad into something quite spectacular.

Dubrovnik, Croatia

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.
