Description from manager
Villa Vanya is a very old village stone house which used to be a grain and wine store for the family who lived in the Big House next door. It is a spacious cottage-style villa, comprising of 100 square metres, and set out on three floors, which are linked by an attractive solid wood and wrought iron indoor staircase. You can enter the villa on two sides, as it has a corner position on the village street on one side, and village steps leading to the beach on the other side. The steps doorway leads you into the ground floor, and the ?street? doorway into the second floor living room. The villa has completely retained its original size and architectural features. Since it used to be just a storehouse, in some parts of the ground floor the original owners did not bother to remove the rocks into which the basement (ground floor) was built. You can still see those rocks as part of the dining room walls. The villa is on an elevated position and has great sea views form its second floor sitting

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.
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. They are places of culinary excellence and several renowned seafood restaurants are there, notably Bota Sare and Kapetanova Kuca (Captain's House) on the seafront of Mali Ston, and Bacchus in Ston. You can sample the excellent local white wine, Posip, and two great reds : Dingac and Postup. These towns are less than 30 minute drive from the villa and are on the Peljesac peninsula which is the land you see from the villa across the stretch of Adriatic. More lovely towns follow on Peljesac - Orebic and Trpanj. They have their own beaches. 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.
