16 CENTURY VILLA FILOMENA (BEACH FRONT) IN DUBROVNIK

Boninovo Villa Rental Photos and Description

5 bedroom historic villa,panoramic sea views,walking distance to Old Town

Sleeps 10 in 5 double bedrooms (4 en suite), a family bathroom. 300 M2, newly renovated, each room air conditioned, large kitchen/breakfast area, living room (fireplace), drawing room, dinning room, cellar, utility room, wireless internet access; mature terraced Mediterranean fruit garden, 100+ M2 stone terraces, 200m from the sea, panoramic views and 5 minutes walk from Dubrovnik Old Town. The property is ideal as an extended family holiday home. Situated next to Saint Peters church with resident nuns, the property is meant for peaceful relaxation, and unsuitable for rowdy holiday makers. Downstairs living room is open plan with a stone fireplace, direct access to the terraces. On the first floor is a large open plan drawing room with an additional sofa bed, as well as two further reading rooms (one on the 1st and one on the 2nd floor) all with sea views. 4 bedrooms have a sea view. As George Bernard Shaw said, “those who seek Paradise on earth should come to Dubrovnik and see it”.

The property is only rented for a minimum period of a week.

The owners will require brief daily access to the premises in order to water the garden and plants and ensure the property is being duly cared for. We aim to keep such visits to times which involve the minimum of inconvenience to our guests and intrusion on their privacy.

Pets must be notified and agreed with the owner in advance.

The owner reserves the right to charge additionally Euro 70 for cleaning after pets and where it is deemed necessary for additional and exceptional cleaning at the end of the stay.

Villa Filomena

  • 4 of 5
We shared this property with friends when attending a wedding in Dubrovnik, accomodation is tastefully done with the character of the building retained, also spacious, plus with four bedrooms ensuite everyone had a bathroom. Living room and kitchen very sociable with fantasic views out to the ocean , Patio area and great barbecue we soon became a venue to meet with others. Few steps up to villa but then everywhere in Dubrovnik seems to have steps !! We are keen to return to explore the city and surrounding areas again and would have no hesitation in recommending.Villa Filomena to would be visitors.

The Ultimate Dubrovnik Experience

  • 5 of 5
First of all, let me say that the pictures in the listing do not do this villa justice. Upon arrival, my family and I were happily surprised to see that the interior was very recently renovated and looked amazing. In fact, my wife and I stayed at the Imperial Hilton hotel in Dubrovnik (5 star) after our stay at this villa and we thought the villa should deserve at least as many stars, if not 6! The exterior needs a bit of work; however, do keep in mind that this villa is over 400 years old, plus, the breathtaking vistas from most of the rooms and the patio will quickly make you forget about the exterior. The "beach" access is very convenient. Keep in mind, this part of the Dalmatian coast does not have sandy beaches - the beach in front of the villa is rocky and has easy access via public steps built into the cliff all the way down to the water (side note - I would not recommend taking small children down these steps - there is a beach with easier child friendly access down the street from the villa.) My family of 10 adults and 3 small children (ages 2, 3 and 5) were very comfortable - we truly appreciated having 5 and a half bathrooms. We also put the gas barbecue grill in the patio to good use, Texas style! If you have a car, make sure to let the owner know you'll need parking - there is no parking at the villa proper. The owner helped us locate convenient parking close to the villa. We never used our car while staying here - everything is within easy walking distance (old town is about a 10 minute walk down the street and there is a Konzum grocery market within the same distance in the opposite direction.) We had an amazing and wonderful time in Dubrovnik, thanks in great part to this wonderful villa.
