Local Amenities

Location Overview

The location of this Large Dubrovnik villa rental is wonderful – Zaton is a picturesque and charming little village in a bay, perfect for relaxing in the sunshine and swimming in the sea. It has little pebbly beaches and swimming spots, and plenty of pine trees for shade – it’s really pleasant to walk along the shore or just to sit in one of the little sea-front restaurants sipping a glass of local wine! The sea in Zaton is a particularly vivid colour and Zaton was a favourite of the old Dubrovnik aristocratic families who used to holiday there.

This large Dubrovnik villa rental is also only 15 minutes drive from the ancient walled city of Dubrovnik so if you get bored of lounging around the pool or bathing in the sea, and having fresh fish BBQs then you can sightsee, shop or eat in the stunning old town or take a trip to one of the nearby islands. There are regular buses to the old town from the bus stop just up the road, and boat hire from the harbour . Apparently a favourite with families that have stayed here you can get a boat to take you out to Kolocep Island – which is lovely for a picnic , sandy beach – no cars allowed  and the clearest water.

Dubrovnik is the most well known destination on the Dubrovnik Riviera with its famous medieval walled town, but there are many other beautiful and interesting places worth a visit like Cavtat, Konavle, Mlini, the Elaphiti islands of Kolocep and Lopud, The Peljesac Peninsula, The Islands of Korcula and Mljet… Great food, stunning views and wonderful sea-side locations and beaches – this is a real gem.

Location Summary

• Sea: 5 minutes walk down to the sea edge in the bay (approx 290m)
• Beach: Zaton Beach is a 6 minute walk from the villa (approx 400m)
• Shop: Village has a small supermarket and a bakery
• Restaurants: approximately 12 open from June – Sept (1 is 300m away on the sea edge (approx 6 minutes walk) – beautiful location!), 2 open throughout the year within walking distance (more at the Sun Gardens resort)
• Bank: Dubrovnik but there is an ATM in the village
• Pharmacy: Dubrovnik
• Post Office, Tourist Office and Bus Stop: 250m
• Walking: lovely walks around the bay
• Airport: 45 minutes (Dubrovnik)

Reviews

“Hello Jelena, Thank you for your message and may I say that we had a wonderful holiday at Zaton Bay. We had the whole family and so a mix of ages but they all enjoyed themselves. The pool was essential and very well used in the morning and evening with a visit to the sea in the afternoon and a call at the Beach Bar for drinks and ice-cream on our way back to the villa!

It was good to be able to walk to the harbour in the morning and get fresh bread and sometimes the odd item from the little supermarket. Pancakes and coffee  sometimes had to be had at the Capo restaurant who were always most obliging. We were met at the airport by Tena which was a bonus and she was most helpful. She was also helpful if we had a problem and fixed us up with a boat for a really good day on the sea. We had a number of meals out but our very best were the Konoba Dubrovnik? in Lopud which we called at on the boat, Copun in Dubrovnik (superb) and a restaurant on the sea front in Zaton Veliki not far from supermarket where there was excellent service, beautiful fish and wonderful views across the harbour.

Changing of sheets etc. very good and your staff really nice to talk to. So all in all a wonderful time had by all! The general family view is that we should visit Croatia again if you have something as good!! One last word of thanks, I think my son-in-law Josh left his driving licence at the villa but i understand it was found by your staff  and returned. Full marks.

Kind regards,Roger” August 2018

“Hi, Yes the villa was very good. A few minor issues that we reported at the time to the Villa Manager. Overall Croatia Gems service from all parties was excellent.
The locality is excellent, the scenery is stunning. The people are very friendly and particularly nice is that it isn’t highly commercialised which pleasantly surprised me.
I would definitely go back to the villa…
Regards,
Andy” July 2016 [Croatia Gems’ note: this guest has also booked the villa in 2017!]

“We have just come back from an amazing holiday in Zaton Veliki – what a fabulous place, we were enchanted.  Please don’t tell anyone else about it as we would like it to stay just as it is!!!!!  The accommodation was outstanding and met all of our requirements.  We were looked after very well by the owner and his host who kept the place immaculately tidy and clean.  Every need was catered for in this luxurious and relaxing apartment.  

Thank you for your advice before booking and throughout the booking and payment process. We have had the most relaxing holiday ever.  Could you please pass on our thanks to everyone at Croatia Gems and the owner himself?  Thank you.” Jane, Marc, Bryony and Megan Owen

“Just wanted to let you know that we had a fabulous time in Croatia and Villa Sophia and Zaton were a perfect location for our group. Your representative Bozo was most helpful, and we felt that we received excellent service. Thanks!” J Bender June 2012

“The trip was wonderful.  Bozidar was fabulous and extremely helpful.  I broke my foot and he drove me to the hospital and navigated the medical system for me.  I’m not sure what I would have done without him.  Please let his boss know what a great job he did.  Thanks for all your help” Allison July 2012

“Hi Denise, At last I have time to thank you for recommending Villa Sophia to us.  We had a really great time it couldn’t have been better.  We hope to return maybe next year. Many thanks once more we will certainly pass on your details to friends. Best Wishes A. Mcquilken“ June 2012

“Thank you hugely for all your help towards our holiday. We had the most amazing time and hope everything was in order when we left. The local rep was also very helpful with everything. It was probably my favourite holiday of all time, making getting back to the daily grind of work even harder. Thank your again” Orlando W . June 2014

“Dear Denise and Helen, now we have been back a week, downloaded all our pictures, and have reflected on our wonderful holiday in Villa Sophia, Zaton, I just wanted to thank you and your colleagues on behalf of us all for helping to make the holiday memorable and one that stands out as being fun, relaxing and very interesting all at the same time. All your advice and information beforehand helped enormously in planning and packing for the trip.

All our grandchildren are back at school this week and are missing their cousins very much! The Villa turned our to be ideal for our party and enabled us to all be together but also have sufficient space and variety to do our own things. It is obviously cared for and very well maintained, which made it very difficult when the local rep came and asked us for a list of things that were wrong with it! We also loved the proximity to the village and the beaches to swim.

We had not anticipated being met on our arrival at the airport as our first flight had no one booked on the transfer service, so were very touched to be welcomed by Tena who helped us a lot with our transfer. We also appreciated very much the responsiveness and help we received from Tena and the team while we were there in advising us what was available to do in terms of activities. We all thought the balance of a half day in Dubrovnik and a day on the islands suited us and our party very well for this visit.

We are glad that we had at least one car available to do large shops, but otherwise we really appreciated our car free week (but we obviously have not got the hang of the bus timetables yet – we waited for over an hour for one to take us to Dubrovnik, before giving up and getting a taxi!).Very many thanks again for all your help.”B.
