With fabulous views of the sea and small Dalmatian town of Cavtat, this fully air-conditioned villa with private pool offers a classic Croatian vista, reaching as far as Dubrovnik, and is ideally located just 100m from shops and restaurants. Traditionally furnished, this property is situated within walking distance of the beach for lazy days sunbathing, but the city of Dubrovnik is within easy reach for those looking to explore the old town, culture and nightlife.
With five ensuite bedrooms, this semi-detached vacation villa is suitable for families or groups of friends. Air-conditioned throughout, you can cool down from a day in the sun with a swim in the private pool, or a cocktail on the balcony overlooking the sea, the forested hills all around you and the town below. The ideal situation of Villa Zara means in a few minutes' walk you are down to the beach and the centre of this ancient coastal town, still preserving much of its original charm and its monuments - the church tower bells, the Franciscan monastery, many old stone houses. Stroll along the palm-tree lined promenade to enjoy the buzzing atmosphere and the stunning seascape of this stretch of southern Dalmatia. The entire peninsula of Rat where Cavtat lies, features forested hills, dramatic coves, rocky outcrops and crystal clear water.
Connected via a regular boat service from Cavtat is Dubrovnik, also known as 'The Pearl of the Adriatic'. The patchwork of alleys enclosed within its thick walls is dotted with church domes, fountains, monasteries and fortified city gates. From the battlement walkway, atop the city walls, you can enjoy one of the best views across the Adriatic over the small forested island of Lokrum, which is just within a 15-minute ride by taxi-boat. Group excursions by kayak are strongly recommended from Banje beach, and very popular with children and adult alike. You have another striking panoramic view point over the city and the Adriatic sea from the top of Mount Srd, easy to reach by cable car. Gastronomic and wine tours are also popular in the Dubrovnik area and you will be amazed by the high quality of the Dalmatian cuisine!
Villa Zara is on the ground floor and first floor of a semi-detached house with sea views down to the small town. The discreet owner lives on the lower ground floor of the building in a separate apartment with its own entrance and garden.
