When you're planning a villa holiday, the first thing that comes to mind is the cost, and how much it…
The Dubrovnik region is perhaps most famous for its incredibly beautiful city, Dubrovnik, which has captivated visitors for centuries with its magnificent city walls and polished marble streets, but the region has so much more to offer and is worth your time exploring. This is one of the most beautiful parts of Croatia and is the southernmost region which has glorious, secluded islands, vast national parks, traditional towns and villages, lush vineyards, endless pine forest and glorious sandy and pebbly beaches.
Things to do in the Dubrovnik Region
You cannot visit this part of Croatia and not visit the city of Dubrovnik. George Bernard Shaw was captivated by this incredible city, about which he said, “those who seek paradise on Earth should come to Dubrovnik”, and it is most certainly one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Here you will find polished marble streets which reflect the sunlight, elegant boutiques and cafes, a fascinating and quaint old town and red-roofed buildings.
For a taste of the region visit the Peljesac Peninsula where you can try the delicious wines. Visit the ancient vineyards, learn about the wine-making process and sample the different types of wine grown here. Our family villas in Dubrovnik are ideally located for exploring all the surrounding areas.
For beautiful scenery why not explore Mljet National Park or Lokrum island with its rocky shoreline and hidden bays? From Trsteno in the north right down to Cavtat and the Konavle region in the south, the jagged and heavily indented coast is rife with coves, beaches and inlets. For a relaxing day in the sunshine, travel to stunning Lopud Island and spend the day on sandy Sunj Beach.
If you want to get to know the beating heart of Croatia, enjoy a villa holiday in the Dubrovnik Region. You'll not be disappointed, and you will most certainly return time and time again.
History and culture in the Dubrovnik Region
This glorious region is part of Dubrovnik-Neretva County and it is only just separated from Bosnia by the peaks of the Dinaric mountains. This beautiful region of Croatia was once part of the Republic of Ragusa (Dubrovnik), and the fertile fields of Konavle contributed to Dubrovnik's enormous wealth. The region's proximity to Bosnia put it in the crosshairs during the breakup up former Yugoslavia and some war damage is still visible south of Dubrovnik, particularly in Srebreno.
Family holidays in the Dubrovnik Region
There is lots of fun to be had for families who are staying in the Dubrovnik Region. Take a relaxing cruise to Elaphiti Island, walk the historic city walls of Dubrovnik and take a cable car to see fantastic views of the city and seascapes below. Children will love watching the peacocks on Lokrum Island, and they will love letting their little imaginations run riot at Fort Lovrijenac. Alternatively, enjoy a relaxing day on one of the many family-friendly beaches which have excellent facilities for families and are very clean. If you fancy a break from all of the marvellous days out, rest assured in your villa with private pool, where you can relax on a sun lounger or splash about to your heart’s content.
Adventurous activities in the Dubrovnik Region
Almost every kind of activity is available for the adventurous at heart in this region. The Dubrovnik region embraces the great outdoors, and there are so many great hiking and biking trails especially in Mljet National Park. Climbing, canoeing, kayaking, snorkelling, diving and sailing are all available. Groups of friends will love the convenience of staying in one of our villas, unwinding after a busy day full of activity.
Romance in the Dubrovnik Region
Croatia is a romantic country, and you will find plenty of time to enjoy each other's company and relax. Enjoy a cocktail while watching the sunset, go for long walks along the shore, find a secluded beach just for you two, or take a sunset cruise around the tiny islets. Trsteno Arboretum is a great place for a romantic stroll, and there is even the Love Stories Museum in Dubrovnik if you want to feel inspired.
