Things to do

-Beaches: The Lapad Peninsula is known for its amazing promenades and refreshing sea views; just what most holidaymakers dream about when imagining the ultimate getaway. Deck chairs and parasols are available for hire to eager sunbathers as the beach is largely pebbly. The beauty is that from Lapad visitors can easily walk to any joint they want. Visitors staying in Lapad holiday homes can thus walk to restaurants, cafes and pubs as they enjoy the delights of Dubrovnik.

-Water sports: There are a number of exciting water-based activities available to adrenaline junkies at Lapad including sea kayaking and boat trips to neighbouring islands. Pedal boats, which are ideal for romantic couples, can be hired from the vicinity of the beach. Those keen on underwater adventure can enlist themselves in diving schools where they will be taught the diving basics and supplied with appropriate gear. Aqua parks are available to keep kids busy

-Food and drink: There are numerous great eateries in the Dubrovnik area, thanks to its blossoming as a tourist destination. Apart from traditional Dubrovnik dishes, visitors can now have a taste of cuisine from literally anywhere in the world. But whichever restaurant holidaymakers go to, they are guaranteed to find tasty fish-based dishes and some Italian specialities such as pasta and risotto.

-Old town: Like other Istrian medieval towns, Dubrovnik has a section that has narrow streets and walled with ancient walls. Within these walls are ancient monuments such as the Sponza Palace which boasts a mixture of Gothic and Renaissance styles. The Dominican Monastery was constructed around the same time Dubrovnik’s walls were being built and is evinces some Roman styling.

-Nightlife: At joints like Cafe Buza, visitors can enjoy not just a pint of their favourite drink, they can do so while admiring a scintillating sunset. Those who are in love with Irish bars will find at least three such establishment where they can quench their thirst. Dubrovnik also has its share of cocktail bars, one of which is a haunt for the more artsy.

Weather in Lapad

Lapad’s weather is pretty much what you’ll get when you travel to any Mediterranean country; warm for most of the year and with precious little rainfall. The warm season, when most visitors make their way to Lapad holiday homes, begins in May when temperatures crack the 20°C mark and keep rising until they peak in August at 29°C. By this time the little rainfall experienced in spring is but a distant memory, only returning as winter sets in in November.

Lovely garden, we especially liked the tortoises! Cavtat is a good base to explore Dubrovnik and surrounding area. Good amenities, convenience store, gift shops and restaurants all a stones throw away but the property is still peaceful.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

My family has never felt so welcome or so well looked after on a holiday. Ivana, who owns the villa, is the perfect host and she is so helpful in organising everything you could possibly want. From taxis to restaurant reservations, from boat charters to our own private chef on our last evening - Ivana will organise everything and this makes the whole experience so much easier. The village of Mlini and the beach are 15 minutes walk and offer plenty of bars and restaurants (Just ask Ivana for recommendations !) . The ferry into Dubrovnik old town also makes visiting this amazing and beautiful place hassle free. Thank you for letting us stay in your amazing Villa. We will be back !!
