Description

The cottage is located on the most idyllic of the Elaphite Islands off the coast of Dubrovnik. The cottage is situated at the quieter end of the island at the end of the riviera on a sandy beach with views towards the main part of the island, the mainland and the other islands of Ruda, Sipan and Mljet. The island is quiet and peaceful with no cars so is really perfect for those wanting to get away from noise and pollution.

The island of Lopud is famous for the beach Sunj, said to be one of the most beautiful rare sandy beaches on the Adriatic coast. The island has a good variety of restaurants and cafes, a post office, a selection of water sports, a trekking route through the island, beach bars and two shops also located along the Riviera. All these amenities are a short distance away from the island as the island is small and a 10 - 15 minute walk will get you from one end of the Riviera to the other. The island is also famous for its' large number of ancient churches

The cottage benefits from having an ideal location at the quieter end of the Riviera on the sandy beach. There is a table and chairs in front of the house for when you're feeling sociable and in the mood to greet passers by next to the beach with stunning views across the bay and a secluded terrace at the back with outdoor kitchen, large dining table, mood lighting and grapevines providing a more romantic and private setting.

Location description from owner

The Dalmatia region

The picturesque Elafiti Islands are located off the Dubrovnik Riviera and consist of 13 islands, islets and rocks, three of which are inhabited - Lopud, Kolocep and Sipan. These Mediterranean islands have a lush subtropical vegetation,a mild climate and used to be the favourite out-of-town residence and place of leisure of the Dubrovnik aristocracy.

The Elafiti Islands are easily accessible from Dubrovnik with regular boat services and indeed if you choose to stay on the island of Lopud I would recommend daily excursions to the other main islands - Sipan and Kolocep as the boat service regularly travels between them.

The Elafiti Islands feel as though they are completely isolated, as though you are in a completely different world and nothing can be more relaxing than forgetting where you are. However, for those who still feel they need some activities apart from sports, walking and fishing Dubrovnik is a short boat ride away. There are regular boat services to and from Dubrovnik and the travelling time is around 40 minutes.

Dubrovnik is the ideal place for those who are interested in the large number of museums and galleries as well as restaurants, shops and the infamous night life. But what makes Dubrovnik so famous it the legendary Old Town - beautiful almost beyond belief. Here you can either soak up the culture, do a spot of shopping, relax in the vast number of cocktail bars or most likely bump into some world famous celebrities as Dubrovnik has become increasingly popular among the jet-set. During the summer do not miss out on the drama festival Dubrovacke Ljetne Igre and the film and music festivals as well as the regular fashion shows.

Lopud

Lopud is the most beautiful and well-preserved of the inhabited Elafiti Islands and is situated between Kolocep and Sipan. It covers an area of 4.63km2 and its highest point is 216m. There are two bays - Lopud Bay in the north west where the riviera and settlement of Lopud are located and Sunj bay in the south east with the stunning sandy beach cocktail bars.

The island has fresh water springs and rich subtropical vegetation and because of its perfect beaches is a favourite spot for tourists. The island has an abundance of churches and chapels as well as the remains of a pre-Romanesque chapel with frescoes and braided ornamentation, Holy Trinity dating from the 16th century. The Franciscan church and monastery St. Mary of Spilica were founded in 1483 and inside the church there are painting by the Italian masters Pietro di Giovanni, Girolamo di Santacroce and Nikola Bozidarevic.

There are no cars on the island and most locals choose to get around by bicycle. When you arrive by boat (along with the daily newspapers and fresh bread!) you will find bicycles to rent in the port by the hour or by the day. The small stone tourist office, kiosk and post office are all located in the port and the locals are all very friendly. Make your way along the riviera and you will find many cafes, restaurants as well as the two main shops. As you go further along the riviera which stretches from the port around the bay to the Hotel Lafodia there are less cafes and the area gets quieter as you approach the cottage. A few hundred metres before the cottage there is a bar on the beach serving drinks all day and evening with a very relaxed atmosphere. There is also a botanical park on the island.

For those wanting to use there energy there is a trekking route that goes around the island and gives you a real taste of the size, beauty and exact location of the island. There are tennis courts on the island and a football pitch used by the locals who don't mind tourist joining in. There are water sports including kayaking and pedaloes.

The two main hotels often have various activities as well as live music evenings where locals and others are welcome to join in. There are often festivals, summer music evenings, choirs and concerts but the dates vary from year to year so it's best to ask at the main tourist office in the port on arrival.

Most attractive and unique about the island though is that there are no large apartment blocks, modern buildings and holiday resorts. The island is a fishing village which has been preserved and is made up almost entirely of old stone houses and cottages.
