Villa La Luciole - Konavle - max 8 Guests


Villa La Luciole is a stunning three-bedroom stone villa with private swimming pool and superb views across the Konavle Valley to the Adriatic Sea. The villa is located in the village of Dubravka – 3km from Gruda, 40km south of Dubrovnik and 15km from Cavtat, on the border with Montenegro. It is also just 15 minutes' drive from the Adriatic Sea. This scenic region is becoming popular for rural tourism and is often compared to Tuscany with its quiet surroundings, breathtaking landscapes, excellent restaurants offering local produce, and activities like horse riding, cycling, hiking and quad biking.

Villa La Luciole was completely renovated in 2015. The owners, both talented Croatian architects, have spent the last 4 years transforming the 18th century stone ruin into a beautiful casual elegant villa. The villa combines traditional rustic elements with contemporary pieces and up-to-date amenities. Inside, the use of light and space is exceptional and the décor encourages guests to relax.

Villa La Luciole has a privileged, private and quiet location in scenic surroundings with breathtaking views of the countryside, to the hills of Konavle and the Adriatic Sea, perfect for enjoying the sunshine and peaceful evenings. With its 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms, the villa can accommodate up to 8 people comfortably.

Ground floor: There's a kitchen, spacious living area and a WC. The Villa has a well equipped kitchen with an adjoining dining area perfect for entertaining. There is a dining table and seating for 6 people, with an extension to accommodate 8. The living area is south-facing with vast sliding doors to the terrace and direct access to the pool and garden. The lounge features a library, two comfy sofas that can be used as extra beds, a TV and a stereo. Toys and games are available to make our young visitors feel at home.

First floor: There are 3 beautifully decorated bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with showers. The main bedroom features a double bed, parquet floors, satellite TV, A/C, a wardrobe and chest of drawers. It also has an en-suite bathroom. The room has access to a large balcony with sun decks and sweeping views of the surrounding countryside and Adriatic Sea. There is one double bedroom and one twin-bed bedroom with parquet floor, A/C, a wardrobe, and breathtaking views.

Outdoors: The covered terrace is equipped with an outdoor table and chairs and a dining table with seating for 8. It is the perfect spot to rejuvenate and rediscover the simple pleasures in life – a morning coffee, dinner al fresco or a glass of wine beneath the stars listening to the cicadas singing. There are also a few deckchairs available for sunbathing. In addition, you may use the private swimming pool (4 x 8 x 1.4 meters) to relaxing and revitalise. The swimming pool is heated when daily temperatures are lower than 24 degres. A rustic summer kitchen, outside dining and BBQ facilities are at your disposal should you wish to enjoy some of the finer culinary treats the region has to offer.

There is A/C throughout, under floor heating in the living area and bathrooms, and wireless internet and parking places available. Two adults bicycles and two kids bicycles are at your disposal to explore the surroundings. With its location, fantastic interiors, and beautiful scenery, Villa La Luciole provides the ideal setting for complete relaxation!

What a beautiful home. and fabulous owners. House and yard was spotless. Plenty of utensils, crockery cutlery. etc. Excellent bedrooms with quality lines and great bathrooms with top quality towels. The privacy of the property was terrific. you could feel like you were the only people for miles and miles. Only downside was the pool was not very warm. Loved it and did not want to leave. Highly recommend.

Dear Isabelle and Viktor We would like to express how much we enjoyed staying at Villa La Luciole. We had a wonderfull vacation and the house and the surroundings were absolutly fantastic and beautiful. It was a pleasure to arrive at your house being welcomed by you with tapas and informed about the area, what to see, where to eat. And thank you for letting us taste all the different liquers. We had fun drinking them in the evenings. The location of the house on the hill overlooking the valley, the mountains and the ocean was amaizing. Listening to the goats climbing the mountains and the churchbells ringing did put a daily life into another perspective. Everything about the house was perfect. It really felt like being home - away from home. Modern, antique, cosy, comfortable all in on. Spending time relaxing by the pool some days and sightseeing in Dubrovnic and Cavtat other days was a perfect combination. You have been perfect hosts. If we had a question we could just call and you would answer right away. You made the traveling in Croatia easy with good road direcions and easy access to booking and information in general. This has been a fantastic holiday. Thank you for letting us stay. We have of course recommended you and your fantastic house allready and we would love to come back. Thank you

Excellent!!! Our accommodation was excellent and exactly as described. Modern facilities in quiet rural setting, with great views, not far from Dubrovnik, the Croatian coast and the Montenegrin border. Isabelle and Viktor made the booking and arrival process very easy!
