Make a holiday apartment in Kolocep your home away from home

Known by locals as Kalamota, Kolocep is one of the Elaphite Islands that are inhabited. These islands are just off Dubrovnik on Croatia’s Adriatic Sea coastline. This island’s shoreline is bordered by clear turquoise waters and is replete with interesting geological features including caves. The Mediterranean climate is perfect for sightseeing and outdoor activity. Being close to the touristy city of Dubrovnik, tourists staying in Kolocep holiday homes have a tour of Dubrovnik in their itineraries. Here they will have the chance to visit many historical sites and immerse themselves in local culture. It is also here that visitors will get the supplies they need for their Kolocep holiday rentals. These holiday homes are fitted with air-conditioning and other facilities to ensure holidaymakers of supreme comfort.

Things to do

-Monuments: There are seven medieval churches on this island which residents of holiday apartments in Kolocep will be able to reach easily. These religious monuments were constructed during the times of the Croatian kings between the 9th and 11th centuries. The remains of several European conquerors have been found in Kolocep representing the ancient empires of Greece, Rome and Napoleon.

-Beach: Kolocep has a magnificent coastline dotted with hidden coves, one of which leads to a cave which one has to swim into. It is known as the Blue Cave. The stretches of sand that define the island’s beaches are ideal for both lounging and leisurely promenades. Visitors can join locals in swimming in the waters next to the beach.

-Hiking: There are trails that lead visitors through Kolocep’s abundant flora which consists mainly of pine and olive groves. Walking or cycling is actually the only way to get around in Kolocep as the place is a traffic-free area. This is not a tall order as the island in only 2.5km long. There are a few hills and so the terrain is quite challenging.

-Water sports: Among other activities available to holidaymakers enjoying the quiet and comfort of holiday apartments in Kolocep are kayaking and sailing in the waters of the Adriatic. Tourists can hire boats to take them on rides to the other Elaphite Islands or to Dubrovnik which is just 20 minutes away.

-Dubrovnik: Dubrovnik is one of Croatia’s most sought after tourist destinations and considering its rich history evidenced by a wealth of monuments and museums as well as the many cultural activities hosted here, one can understand why. The city also boasts lovely beaches, some sandy, some pebbly, from which visitors can enjoy the beautiful Mediterranean sun.

Weather in Kolocep

The moderate Mediterranean climate Kolocep enjoys is one of the reasons tourists seek holiday accommodation here. Most visitors arrange to arrive at their holiday homes just as spring is giving way to summer; between May and June, so as to avoid the mid-summer temperatures which can sometimes be intense. At this time of year temperatures range between 21 and 25°C. Temperatures inevitable rise as August approaches, reaching average highs of 29°C. Rainfall during this period is extremely rare. It is only as winter arrives in November that precipitation levels above 100mm are recorded.

Travel to Kolocep

The Dubrovnik Airport is the closest airport to Kolocep, sitting just about 15 miles from the island. Most of the traffic this airport receives is in the form of seasonal flights aboard commercial carriers and seasonal charters during the summer months. These flights bring in tourists from all over Europe. On arrival tourists will head into the Dubrovnik city centre by bus or by taxi from where they can get a boat ride to their holiday homes in Kolocep.

Stunning location. Property was extremely clean and well equipped

5 of 5
This property is far better than the photos suggest. The views are just stunning and you could spend your whole holiday soaking these in. Marija and her husband are the perfect hosts-they are there if you need them but do not intrude at all. The location is out of the old city which provides a welcome respite from the crowds-do not be put off by the walk-20 minutes to the gates of the old city. We did this at least twice per day! It was our first visit to Dubrovnik but not our last and when we come back we will be coming back to this apartment!

Amazing 5 days!

5 of 5
We absolutely loved our stay at Villa Ivana. The view from the villa over the infinity pool was amazing and all the rooms were beautiful, all with a sea view! Ivana and Joseph were extremely hospitable, ready to answer calls at a seconds notice, drive all 11 of us where we needed to go and gave great advice on restaurants and things to do. I would highly recommend staying here. The location is perfect, just a ten minute taxi outside of Dubrovnik and walking distance to the local beach and small supermarket. Thank you and hope to see you again!
