Villa Cilipi is a pretty stone villa with pool. It sits in large private gardens and is so secluded it can sometimes be difficult to find – it’s that private ! but the bubbly villa manager Kate will talk you in and make you feel so welcome . She will also provide maps and help with directions to the nearest swimming spots, the nearest one is just a 15 minute walk through the woods or a few minutes drive. She is a mine of local info and is available for you 24/7.
The villa is made up of 4 separate one bedroom apartments, all furnished beautifully and all have air conditioning in both bedrooms and living rooms for your comfort. The property is surrounded by large gardens which make for a very peaceful and private location – super place to stay for both families and groups of friends.( the pretty stone villa with pool is rented as a complete unit only.)

Each apartment has its own parking place, internet connection and SAT TV.
Konavle itself is beautiful – rambling countryside scattered with pretty, tall poplar trees and traditional villages, streams and rustic restaurants serving the best of local produce. Within just few minutes by car are some idyllic swimming spots, beautiful beaches and stunning bays – Molunat, for example is a stunning place to laze away a day and find your own corner of paradise.
Take a wander through pine forests, or visit historical towns of Cavtat (7 km) and Dubrovnik (20 km) where there is a whole variety of excursions and delicious local cuisine. One of the most interesting draws of the Konavle region is that it was traditionally, and still is, the main wine and olive growing area of the Dubrovnik Riviera so be sure to make the most of that with lots of wine tasting and sampling of local dishes!
For the more active families Go horse riding or on the ATV buggy safari which is only 4km from the house!

Cilipi itself is one of the most popular Sunday destinations locally as they have traditional dancing in the main square!

The Villa is 4 separate rooms each with own kitchen,toilet and bathroom, communal area. Shared pool. Spacious garden and outside patio. Sunbeds by pool. Towels and body wash/soap. Very clean. Very spacious (especially upper floors). Microwave and dishes/cutlery. TV and WiFi provided. Really Good shower. Excellent villa. The Location 5-7 mins drive from Dubrovnik airport. 10-12 mins drive to Cavtat port. Difficult to find with Google maps and uber but the location is good. 5 mins walk from 2 restaurants and supermarket. Kate can help arrange transport if need be. The villa itself was amazing, the host was even better. Cannot believe the lengths she went to for us. Thank you for making our stay so memorable Kate. I hope others get to enjoy the villa and your hospitality as much as we did. Overall definitely 10/10. July 2019
“Amazing villa, absolutely wonderful host”
Reviewed 21 Aug 2017
We were a party of six ranging in ages from 25-86. We were travelling from the US and Canada and this was our first trip to Croatia. Beginning our journey in Cilipi was a decision we did not regret. It was minutes from the airport (a Godsend after a long trip) and it was quiet and peaceful. The location provided a wonderful hub from which to explore the region.
The 4 individual apartments were well appointed, pleasing to the eye, very clean and spacious. Each apartment had individually controlled air conditioning as well as lovely French doors to the outside patio. The bathrooms were super and the showers were awesome. The pool was lovely, sparkling clean, warm and a perfect spot to end the day.
We ate breakfast together on the large table on the back patio each morning where we discussed the day’s itinerary. Kate provided us with a lot of brochures and maps so we felt very knowledgeable. She gave us information on the area – where to eat, where to swim, where to get groceries, how to get to Dubrovnik – a perfect hostess. She checked in with us regularly to make sure that all was well. Kate even called and made dinner reservations for us!
