Zoom in on Croatia: Best Croatia family villa holiday spots on the Dubrovnik Riviera – Mlini Bay
by Saron Lease, Croatia Gems Company Founder & Director, 9th May 2022,
The Dubrovnik Riviera is easy to get to with good flights from the UK and Europe and makes a great base for family summer holidays to Croatia – the area close to Dubrovnik is the best place for a villa holiday with many pretty little bays and beaches and lots to visit nearby.
Saron Lease of Croatia Gems gives the lowdown on what Mlini Bay and the Dubrovnik Riviera has to offer…
The area of Mlini Bay has loads to offer families and groups looking for a location which offers a relaxing holiday yet with plenty to do and see, plus an easy and quick transfer from the airport. Our guests love it as it has everything: a little harbour, a good selection of restaurants and cafes, and probably the most and best beaches in the Dubrovnik area – the whole one side of the bay is beach and coves. Additionally, a large part of the bay is pedestrianised, so it’s great for children and relaxing generally. There is a dive centre and you can also get the water taxi into Dubrovnik Old Town harbour and out to the beautiful islands off Dubrovnik’s coast – really worth doing. Dubrovnik old town is also only 10 minutes drive/bus away and a must-see. Further afield, how about a Day Trip to the Old Town of Mostar, where East meets West? Or head towards the Peljesac Peninsula and pop into Ston for some of its famous oysters, with some local award-winning wine, or to the Trsteno Arboretum where Game of Thrones was filmed. There is so much to do and see, you will be spoilt for choice.
Where to Stay?
We’d recommend the lovely Villa Anamaria, with its cool, contemporary interior and amazing pool giving enviable views over the bay and Villa Turquoise which is perfect for a family or group of friends and has one of the best locations in sought after Mlini Bay, sitting just one house behind the sea edge in the centre of the sweeping bay. Villa Nectara has a great location at the Srebreno end of Mlini bay – 5 en-suite bedrooms, large pool and a badminton court! If you need extra bedrooms, have a look at Villa Mlini with its 7 bedrooms and, like the other villas recommended here, is also within walking distance of beaches, restaurants, café bars, food shops and the water taxi to Dubrovnik, Cavtat and the islands. At the time of writing, all have at least one key school holiday week free.
