Make a holiday apartment in Gruz your home away from home

The Croatian city of Dubrovnik is a picturesque coastal town boasting plenty of ancient architecture and sublime beaches. Wandering about its streets and squares, visitors will feel drawn to another age in history and they will be stunned as they partake of majestic views while walking along the city walls. Small wonder this locale has been christened the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’. As holidaymakers immerse themselves in the sights and sounds of Dubrovnik they’ll have the joy of retreating to sumptuous holiday accommodation in the Gruz locality. HomeAway offers Dubrovnik tourists a lavish holiday apartment that is part of a traditional stone house. This abode is simply yet elegantly furnished and commands incredible views of the Lapad Peninsula, Bay Gruz and the Elafiti islands. It is also conveniently located next to a shopping centre, bank and the tourist offices.

Things to do

-Monuments: With Dubrovnik being literally awash with important monuments, visitors often don’t know where to start. The Sponza Palace in the old town is a good a place as any. It is a gothic Renaissance palace that hosts historical archives and it retained much of its previous structure after the 1667 earthquake struck. Not far from it is the Bell Tower where huge bronze statues strike a gigantic bell every hour.

-City walls: Any visitor to this city should make a point of walking along its ancient walls if only to marvel at the breathtaking views. These walls are 2km in length, having been built to shield the city from invaders. As they walk along the wall visitors will come across the Minceta Fort and the St. Luke’s Tower. The latter offers a great viewpoint over the city.

-Museums: Given the rich history of this locale, it’s no surprise that there are numerous museums here. The Dominican Monastery Museum houses a slew of interesting artefacts depicting Dubrovnik’s history. More exhibits concerning Dubrovnik’s past can be found in the Sponza Palace Museum. To see furniture and works of art from the time Dubrovnik was a separate state, visit the Rector’s Palace Museum.

-Outdoor activities: There is plenty to keep the adrenaline junkie busy in Dubrovnik. For starters they can swim in the waters of the Adriatic Sea and if this doesn’t quite quench the thirst for adventure, they can try cliff jumping. Visitors who desire more leisure can charter boats or yachts from the marina and explore the nearby Elaphite Islands.

-Beaches: Most of the holidaymakers occupying holiday homes in Gruz make the bookings with long hours of sunbathing in mind. Two main beaches are the toast of Dubrovnik; Lapad Beach and Banje Beach. The latter is a picturesque pebble beach which tourists love taking afternoon strolls along. At the former holidaymakers can enjoy a spot of beach volleyball.

Man hat wirklich einen Atemberaubenden Blick von der eigenen Terrasse aufs Meer und kann dort Morgens und Abends die großen Kreuzfahrtschiffe betrachten, die direkt an der Terrasse vorbei fahren. Der private Meerzugang ist ebenfalls sehr schön und liegt direkt unterhalb der Terrasse. Das Appartement war sehr sauber und gut eingerichtet. Die Altstadt von Dubrovnik ist wirklich nur 10 Autominuten entfernt. Wir haben uns entschlossen nächstes Jahr wieder zu kommen und freuen uns wieder so gut und herzlich von unserem Gastgeber Petar empfangen zu werden.

Ivana was warm, welcoming, friendly and full of great advice and local information. She then helped us up to the apartment on the top floor. The decor was stunning, likewise, the view from the balcony over the Port of Gruz. We had a great time staying in the apartment, which is set in an area 'far from the madding crowd', but close enough to walk to virtually all amenities i.e. supermarket, 24 hour bakery, restaurant (don't be fooled by its facade, they served the best carbonara I'd had in years!!!), buses, excursions, old city/cultural centre (not to be missed). We would highly recommend this property! The only draw back may be for the elderly and/or disabled as there are lots of stairs/steps in Dubrovnik and the landscape is very hilly, this did not effect us however as we are fit walkers!!

The town was great to explore; crowded of course with the cruise liners nearly every day, but a very special historical city. We very much enjoyed learning more about the history of Croatia and the Balkans. There are three museums dedicated to the recent wars there. All are harrowing but immensely informative - worth the emotion. The apartment was exactly as promised and with the owners being discretely next door we were never at a loss for anything. Their generosity and hospitality was wonderful and very touching. Having the view over the harbour and watching the boats coming and going was a perfect way to end the day (with a glass of wine). As others have noted, there is all you need in terms of supermarkets very close. The daily market at the bottom of the steps is superb for fruit and vegetables.(I did buy some small fish and tried to cook them. I made the mistake of not de-scaling them first. Error.) Our thanks to Sylvia and her husband for a very special holiday.
