Dubrovnik Old Town Villa Rental Photos and Description
Sleeps 4/6. Villa Mirak has two bedrooms, and sits on the spectacular fjord like Rijeka Dubrovacka. Local shops and bars 5 minutes walk. There is a TV lounge, kitchen and dining room in the old chapel, a large Renaissance garden, including a well and its own boat moorings. The house is 100sq m and garden 200sq m. Cvjetko and Dube, our managers, are available throughout your stay and have received rave reviews from many of our guests. Excellent local buses to all centres from near by.
Villa Mirak has a really peaceful and restful atmosphere, possibly due its religious history. The Villa is in a quiet suburb of Old Mokosica, 5 minutes walk to local shops and bars, occupied mainly by Croatians, with very few tourists in evidence. We would describe the area as "rustic". All of the neighbours are very friendly - some own their property as a holiday home, so a few properties are not occupied all the year around. Part of the property comprises an old family chapel, which is now used as a dining room with an amazing atmosphere. Outside there is a Renaissance style restored garden with its own natural well. Villa Mirak is 2 miles from the ACI Marina where there are excellent restaurants, a good supermarket and a superb swimming pool. The Old City of Dubrovnik is 8 miles from the Villa, with the Port Town of Gruz 4 miles away. The Old City is a major tourist attraction, as it has a Venetian atmosphere, with a large range of restaurants and bars and excellent cultural activities including concerts and clubs.

The Villa may not be suitable for those with mobility problems as the bathroom facilities are on the ground floor.
Local shops, bank and bars within 5 minutes walk. Larger shops in Gruz,(4 miles). Excellent choice of restaurants at ACI Marina (2 miles), Gruz (4 miles and Dubrovnik Old Town (8 miles). There are some magical restaurants right on the sea where they tie up the lobster below the tables for you to pick (Zaton Mali).
The must do's in the Old City of Dubrovnik are, in no particular order; walk the walls at sunset, ride the cable car at any time, wander round the cathedrals and palaces whenever, attend the outside concerts given by visiting and local Philharmonic orchestras in the evening, window shop in some amazingly high fashion retailers, just people watch... and not mentioned... sample the very Italian pizzas. Just a peaceful stroll from Villa Mirak, is the beautiful 14th century Franciscan monastery at Rozat, dwarfed by the tail end of the Dinaric Alps, running through Croatia from north to south. From certain points, further around towards the ACI Marina, it is possible to see a Croatian Flag painted by Dubrovnik residents high up on the cliff face. This was done when Montenegran troops occupied the area in the 1990's war. On the steep banks of the river directly opposite Villa can be seen the remains of the old Dubrovnik Sarajevo narrow gauge railway line. This is now a superb walk accessed from Gruz. For pictures of the line and river (with no road bridge) visit. The owners of the villa next door used to live in Sarajevo and travelled on the line. The place to swim in Dubrovnik is Sunj Bay at the Island Lopud. The Island is steeped in Greek and Roman history. Many bring their boats here to swim and dive. Some come by ferry and explore the island on foot. There is a legend about the beach. If you swim here with your loved one you will stay together for ever. Our experienced managers can arrange all the trips and tours you may need, including Krka National Park, Mostar, Montenego, Split and Medjugorje which is an amazing and spiritual place to visit.
