Everything we hoped for .......and more
A wonderful stay high up in the hills above the Konavle valley on the border with Montenegro and Bosnia.
Paulino presents a fabulous villa that is very well kept and he is eager to ensure that everything is in order from the friendly welcome at the airport to accommodating our departure requirements. Presented with local cheeses and meats on arrival was perfect after a very early start in London! The local wines were also consumed with relish!
Everything was as described on the booking. We are a family of five but the accommodation would comfortably take two families. My three boys (13/12/10) were kept entertained for hours with the games, the pool, sauna and Jacuzzi. It was still warm enough in October (22/23 degrees) for the pool and a couple of BBQs in the splendid facility that Paulino has built.
Local attractions allowed for plenty to do. Twenty minutes to the beach if you wish but the non-beach sites were exceptional. Dubrovnik is legendary and well worth the visit but even more surprising for us were the much quieter old towns of Kotor and Hercig Novi in nearby Montenegro. Cavtat is a beautiful Croatian town and we also visited Molunat, the Prevlaka Peninsula, the local castle Sokol Grad and the exceptional hill top look out from Santa Barbara on the old Bosnian mountain pass just above the Villa.
The two local restaurants in Ljuta provided great food when we could be bothered to cook!
The airport is under half an hour away, so no stress upon arrival or departure.
Many thanks for your nice, long and very detailed review. I appreciate the time you took to write it. All the best to you and your family. BR Anke from My Waycation in Croatia
Amazing villa! Fantastic host!
We have just arrived back from a fantastic holiday at villa pave. We were a group of 14 people ranging from 1 year-63 Years of age and we were travelling to Croatia to get married.
Upon arriving at the airport, Paulino met us with both his cars and took us back to the villa. We were welcomed with complimentary breads, meats and cheeses which went down well by all. That’s a really nice touch. The villa itself is everything you could want and more. The upstairs is separate to the downstairs which is ideal for families as you can have your own space. Each level has a kitchen which is really handy.
The outside area is truly amazing. The views are to die for, the swimming pool is perfect and the games room kept my teenage boys happy whilst we were there. The barbecue area is worth a mention, it’s huge. We hosted a post wedding bbq there for 35 guests with ease.
I think what really made our stay so special was Paulino. There was nothing this man wouldn’t do to help us. He provided transport to our wedding venue free of charge, he was constantly at the end of the phone for any queries we had and he happily provided us with a taxi service through contacts of his as taxis can be very expensive in Croatia. We even came back from our wedding to find a little gift, flowers and wine in our room. Again, a really nice touch which makes all the difference I think. He really was the best host which was very comforting from the offset.
We would love to come back and visit one day and would have no doubt about booking this villa again, you won’t regret it!
Dear Ben, I just forwarded your words to Paulino. Many thanks for your lovely review. All the best. Best regards, Anke
Lovely relaxing stay in a villa in the countryside. You will need transport when staying at the vill
We have just returned from a week at this amazing villa. There were 13 of us including 2 children aged 1 and 5. There was plenty of room for us all.
Paulino is the perfect host and ensures that there is everything you need and makes you feel very welcome. The villa is very spacious and clean and the pool and garden were very nice too. The enclosed eating area and barbecue were great to sit in at he end of a relaxing day.
We went to Cavtat and Dubrovnik and some of our party went to Mostar for the day which they enjoyed. Also some of our party went out on a boat from Cavtat which was great fun.
Would thoroughly recommend this exceptional host and his lovely villa.
Thank you Paulino
thank you very much for your nice review
Delightful stay at Hotel Pave...Paulino couldn't have been more helpful and the facilities were grea
Wonderful pool, hire cars were fantastic and a much higher spec than would be expected. The house is a little bit of a distance from anywhere, so having the cars was really important for the quality experience we had. The croatian meal was very well done and the service from evening's was great. Paulino was very accommodating for our departure, allowing us to linger around the pool until late afternoon prior to our departure. Great holiday and would highly recommend!
Dear Robert, Many thanks for your review. I wish you all the best and hope to see you soon in Croatia again. Best regards, Anke
Amazing Villa, amazing holiday!
We stayed here for a week in August 2017. We were a group of 14 people. Owner Paulino was very helpful throughout our stay and went above and beyond. He met us at the airport with his 2 hire cars and provided car seats. He came with us to buy our ferry tickets to Dubrovnik and advised on the best beaches and restaurants in the area. He also provided local meats, cheese, snacks and wine, beer and soft drinks for our first evening.
The villa itself is absolutely amazing. Exactly as pictured, finished to a really high standard and has something for everyone. The play park and trampoline were a hit with the younger children, the pool table and table tennis table kept us all amused and the swimming pool was lovely, after being slightly chilly the first day Paulino turned the heat up for us. There is also a gym with sauna and hot tub!
The area is remote in the mountains, but it has beautiful views, a small castle to visit, really pretty churches, a waterfall to walk to, and a large cross on the top of a local hill which we also visited. The villa also has 3 mountain bikes which some of our party made good use of.
The local restaurants serving traditional Croatian food were really good and in beautiful surroundings, a little further afield (approx 30 min drive) is Cavtat which is more touristy and has a range of different restaurants.
We would highly recommend this villa and would consider returning.
Dear Katie, Thank you so much for this lovely review. We really appreciate to hear from our guests and new guests always like to read about it. I wish you all the best and I hope to welcoming you soon again. Best regards, Anke
Stunning Luxury Retreat
This is a beautiful villa set up in the hills in rural Croatia, away from all the traffic and tourism of busy Dubrovnik. The pictures capture the setting very well and this property deserves all the five star reviews. Paulino Hendic is the owner and host, he is absolutely fantastic and treats you to a real VIP service. On our arrival Paulino had brought us some cheese, ham and fruit so we did not need to run to the shops. He could not do enough for us, including cleaning the pool mid week.
You definitely need a car to stay here as it is quite remote, 10 mins drive to the nearest town of Gruda. Paulino can provide hire vehicles cheaper than you can book online and I definitely recommend doing this. I would suggest you contact Paulino direct before booking to discuss, his email is Hendic.email@example.com. The website is dubrovnikvillapave-Hendic.hr. We have had some booking nightmares in the past using big websites and agencies so I would always recommend booking direct with the owner.
The villa is about 25 mins from the airport and Dubrovnik old town is about an hour away once you have found somewhere to park!!
The villa is well stocked with essentials like olive oil, ketchup, pasta, salt and pepper, so we did not need to go and buy things that you end up leaving behind.
There were also 3 good quality mountain bikes available, which 2 of us used everyday. There are lots of steep lanes to explore, great fun going down, hard work coming up!! Certainly beat going to the gym!
Also worth a mention, we went to a restaurant in Gruda called Koraceva Kuca which was amazing.
We had a fantastic week long stay here in August and it was delightful. Very highly recommended.
Dear Matt, Many thanks for your nice review. I am very glad that you had a great stay and we hope to welcoming you soon again in Croatia. All the best to you and your family. Best regards, Anke
