Villa Charlotte - Zaton Veliki - max 14 Guests


Villa Charlotte is located in the picturesque bay of Zaton, just 10 minutes driving from Dubrovnik. Villa Charlotte is an exceptional private villa with 6 spacious bedrooms, voluminous living spaces and expansive Mediterranean gardens with an outdoor pool and a private chapel. An ideal choice for families and groups of friends, the Villa can accomodate up to 14 people.

Built back in the 15th century, Villa Charlotte was originally envisioned as a summer retreat for aristocrats, a getaway from the heated stone of Dubrovnik's Old Town and a place to relax, enjoy and entertain friends and family. Vividly illustrating our ancestor's sophistication in leisure, its striking waterfront location, impressive but unpretentious interiors, tranquil garden ambiance and complete privacy of the enclosed property make it a representative sample of Dubrovnik Renaissance architecture and protected Croatian National Heritage. This magnificent blend of longstanding history and appreciation of leisure was recently restored to its former glory, working closely with numerous conservation and restoration experts, as the Villa is a registered Croatian National Heritage monument.

The villa strikes the perfect balance between contemporary minimalist design, a homely atmosphere and original historic details.

A Walkthrough

The main entrance to the villa sits at the deep end of Zaton bay, along the waterfront promenade. Stepping into the southern courtyard, its massive stone walls immediately resonate an exclusive experience and true privacy. Furnished with outdoor sofas, the courtyard is focused around the staircase leading onto a very modern structure, the glass bridge, running over the courtyard in full length and connecting two outdoor terraces on the first floor level. From both the terraces and the bridge, the views of Zaton bay, its marina and crystal clear Adriatic are bound to leave you in awe.

From the courtyard, enter the main house, comprising 580 m2 of space spread over two floor levels. Typical local materials such as Croatian stone, tufa and top quality wood, but also glass, dominate in the interior. Its clean and modern design lines successfully bring together contemporary minimalism, homey warmth and original historic details, some dating back to the earliest times, over 500 years ago. The stone staircase in the entrance foyer for example, or intricate stonework of library wall niches. Airy and spacious, the interior of Villa Charlotte holds many unique corners, making everyone feel very much at home here. The entrance foyer is the central space of the ground floor and doubles as a welcome area and a lounge. To the right of the foyer, two double rooms with bathrooms each feature unique elements, such as an exit directly to the gardens or the bench placed within an arched niche which was originally an entrance for boats. This area also holds a laundry room with washing machine and dryer.

Turning left from the foyer, pass the fully-equipped professional kitchen, a large, open-concept area of tufa ceilings and stone floors and walls features a modernly equipped bar area, a cozy living room space with a fireplace and an impressive dining area, dominated by the massive, one-piece table made of wood and stone, suitable for 16 people.

To get up to the first floor level, take the historic staircase from the entrance foyer. As you admire the perfectly polished surface of stone underneath your footsteps, move to enter the library, the central common area of the upper floor. Formerly a salon, the library is an airy space full of light, with high ceilings, large windows and double doors leading onto one of the two terraces on the first floor level.

The first floor comprises 4 luxury suites, each on two floor levels and organized around the same concept: a comfortable lounge and a modern bathroom with walk-in shower and floor heating on the lower level, and a wooden staircase leading up to the gallery with a king size double bed. Satellite TV, safe, and toiletries in each bathroom are standard for each suite.

The true gem of Villa Charlotte lies behind the main house. Completely secluded by high stone walls, its terraced Mediterranean gardens extend at over 1500 m2 and are just incredibly fragrant, quiet and private. Enjoy the scents of typical local sorts like citruses, olives and lavender, as well as picking fresh spices for your meals from the herb garden. Coupled with the outdoor pool, an inviting, shaded lounge area and outdoor grill, the gardens are certainly the place to spend most of your time at. At the back of the gardens, you can enjoy a moment of serenity in the chapel of St. Jerome, an integral part of the property.

Typically radiating calmness, the atmosphere at the Villa can be adapted to suit any of your moods or occasions. A contemporary villa, everything from lighting, music to temperature can be regulated easily. Specially designed indoor and outdoor lightning plus SONOS and BOSE sound systems throughout the property create a special atmosphere during the day and turn the villa into a fairy-tale estate at night.

To make your stay at the Villa perfect and your experience of the region complete, a Villa Manager is at your disposal for all information and concierge services.
