Villa OverviewThis fabulous Cavtat family Villa, was originally a 1920’s summer house, the villa is rather special as it was built and owned by an English lady and her local husband – they were said to have been friends with King Edward V111 and Wallace Simpson who apparently stayed with them in this house during their whirl wind tour of the Dalmatian Coast in the 30’s! The house has been host to some other very distinguished guests and during its time between WW1 and WW2, famous visitors to grace the grounds included; George Bernard Shaw, Hilaire Belloc and Sidney and Beatrice Webb. It has been lovingly restored by its new owners into a warm and friendly family home and is furnished with some lovely old pieces especially brought over from England.

You might also want to retreat to the 'moroccan’ outside sitting room which is a wonderful area to snooze and read in the shade during those warm afternoons. There is also a separate ‘little house’ – this used to be the servants quarters and is now a studio apartment.
