Description from manager

Description

Villa Katarina is situated within the ancient walls of Mali Ston. Unusually for a town house of this type, it is detached and stands within its own plot with a small terrace/garden area around it. Mali Ston is a picturesque fortified medieval town just 40 minutes drive from Dubrovnik and less than an hour from Dubrovnik airport. Villa Katarina is a listed building that has been sensitively renovated. It is now a luxury house that retains its original character. The area of Mali Ston within the town walls is arranged on terraces with pedestrian passageways between them.

Villa Katarina has extensive views over the harbour and bay from the front windows and from the back looks out towards the five-towered castle that stands above the town. The villa is a one minute walk to the beach and the water front restaurants around the harbour. The villa sleeps up to four people in a spacious double bedroom and a living room with comfortable daybeds and sofas. The villa is fully air-conditioned

Location description from manager

The Dalmatia region

Described as the pearl of the Adriatic, Dubrovnik will not fail to impress with great City walls rising out of the brilliant Adriatic against a backdrop of steep mountainsides. Within the walls of the old town are some fine architecture and lively streets crammed with shops, cafes and restaurants. Walk the City walls to enjoy the beautiful roofscape of the old town and the seascape beyond. Visit the Franciscan and Dominican monasteries and stroll down the cobbled streets and alleyways or relax in the cafes. During the summer months the Dubrovnik festival hosts concerts on most nights providing music of all types.

Gruz

Gruz is the port area of Dubrovnik where the cruise ships dock and where mega-yaghts tie up at the quayside around this large and sheltered natural harbour. The gentle banks of Gruz harbour was where the Dubrovnik noblemen chose to build their fine summer palaces to escape the heat and bustle of the ancient city. Many of these stunning Rennaisance buildings are still standing and some have been renovated as luxury hotels or spectacular private houses. Today Gruz is a shopping and commercial centre for Dubrovnik as well as a living museum of Rennaisance architecture.

Eating Out

Dubrovnik offers everything from sophisticated restaurants in spectacular waterside locations to simple bistros in alleyways and side streets of the old town. The choice is endless. We can provide you with our recommendations

Beaches

In Dubrovnik there are popular beaches all around the Lapad Peninsula. From the old town harbour ferries go regularly to the small island of Lokrum just a few minutes away, where Dubrovnik people traditionally like to go for a swim. A short distance down the coast there are sandy and shingle beaches at Kupari and Mlini.

Islands

The nearby islands of Lopud, Sipan and Kolocep are easily reached by ferry from Dubrovnik. Much quieter but still historically interesting. Lopud has one of the best sandy beaches in the region whjoch can be reaced by walking across the narrow neck of thre island from the town of Lopud. The charming harbour front village of Suderad on Sipanhas a well preserved fortified palace from the 15th century.

Trsteno

About 10km from Dubrovnik is the famous landscaped garden and arboretum of Trsteno a Mediterranean garden with a fine array of trees and breathtaking views. The gardens were created by the nobleman Ivan Gucetic in the grounds of his summer villa built between 1494 and 1502 .

Mali Ston

The picturesque town of Ston with its small sister town of Mali Ston are picturesque fortified medieval towns standing either end of the narrow isthmus that joins the Peljesac peninsula to the mainland. Prapratno Cove, close to Ston, provides one of the finest sandy beaches in Croatia.

The Dubrovnik Republic acquired control over Peljesac in 1333 and proceeded to construct massive fortifications in the form of a 5.5 kilometre wall spanning the isthmus and circling the towns of Ston and Mali Ston that stood on the coast at either end of the wall. The wall was built between 1336 and 1358 and is considered to be the longest defensive wall in Europe. Above Mali Ston and forming part of the town's fortification stands the impressive five-towered castle, Koruna. Mali Ston itself is laid out in terraces rising up the hillside and overlooking the sheltered harbour with its landmark circular Toljevac Tower built in 1478. Just across the isthmus lies Ston, laid out to a grid plan in the 14th century, the town is reminiscent of Dubrovnik and contains some fine public buildings dating from the 15th and 16th centuries. The ancient wall has been restored and is open to the public. The walk from Ston to Mali Ston provides wonderful views of the coastline and towns below. The saltpans at Ston, still operating today are estimated to have generated two thirds of the Dubrovnik Republic's revenue in the 14th century. Nearby the small community of Broce, reached by a causeway running beside the Ston channel, was established in 1349 and has historic buildings and a delightful beach.

Eating out

Ston and Mali Ston are places of culinary excellence. There are renowned seafood restaurants, notably Bota Sare (occupying and old salt warehouse) and Kapetanova Kuca (Captain's House), on the seafront of Mali Ston. The town is famous for its oysters harvested from the local oyster beds. You can sample the excellent local white wine, Posip, and two great reds: Dingac and Postup.

Beaches

There are beaches at Mali Ston and Broce. Prapratno Cove, close to Ston, provides one of the finest sandy beaches in Croatia. The Peljesac peninsula contains some of the very best beaches that can be found on the Adriatic. A 30 minute drive up the peninsula will take you to the delightful village of Zuljana. The village houses front a small harbour and sandy beach which offers excellent swimming against a spectacular backdrop of woodland and mountains.
