The holiday was first class .... from our host Stjepo greeting us at the airport, .... to the accommodation, .... to the beautiful town of Cavtat! My husband, myself and our two daughters (age 9 and 1), spent ten fabulous days at the beautiful property Villa Laureana in August. Stjepo met us at the airport, showed us around the town and the key landmarks, and was always readily available throughout our stay for advice and info on the area. He even arranged for his son Bepo to take my daughter to tennis! You don't get that service everywhere! The Villa is as it is described and shown on the photos , the views are stunning. Cavtat is so accessible to Dubrovnik and we took a boat trip part way through our holiday, definitely worth a visit but chose a day when there are no cruise ships. Cavtat is full of lovely restaurants at reasonable prices, and we thoroughly enjoyed the yacht watching! We will definitely be back to Cavtat and Villa Laureana!

The apartment is on the first floor and had everything we needed it’s up high overlooking the bay and Cavtat. Overall the apartment was clean/fresh and comfortable and perfect for self-catering. We spent a bit of time on the balcony which is off the main bedroom, it was so nice to wake up in the morning and look out at the bay and Cavtat. The beach is about a 5 min walk from the apartment and we used this a number of times. You'll find a small supermarket nearby that had everything we needed. Again locally in Cavtat you’ll find a wonderful choice of restaurants to suit all prices. It's a short trip into Dubrovnik with its picturesque stone walls and lots of cafes and ice cream of course. We really enjoyed our stay and can’t wait for the next trip I would highly recommend as it was excellent value for money.
