A beautiful property! The house is as described- very comfortable and luxurious. The location is perfect- just a few steps away from the sea and various restaurants and yet very quite. Ezra was the perfect host- extremely friendly and helpful. We had a wonderful holiday here!
This mansion has everything going for it - unbeatable location, lot of character, cool vibe, cosy feeling. In one word - perfect!
My vacation in Cavtat was a really great one. Beauty of the town itself was highlighted by hospitality of locals, but the real "pirates' treasure" was Villa L'Una.
That villa is restaured in a very beautiful and tasty way, but technical equipment there was something I didn't expect.
I'm little bit of a gadget and music freak myself and when I saw Sonos system I could connect my iPod to, everything fell into place... Music, outdoor whirlpool, indoor pool, cool drinks, good food... And, of course, good friends ;) All you need for a perfect holiday!!!
Stunning vila! Stunning location! Incredible combination of old and modern architecture.
When you enter the vila you feel immediately at home. No better feeling. I mean you actually wish this was your home.
The vila's location is directly at the heart of Cavtat. All you need is within walking distance of max 2min - beach actually 1 min ;-)
Simply put - the stay where we enjoyed the beautiful indoor pool or relaxed on the whirlpool over viewing the small town with perfect look on the incoming big yachts or had lots of fun cooking together in the roomy kitchen has been AMAZING!
Definitely we will visit again.
The moment I walked through the front door, I felt I came to a perfect vacation destination.
"Home away from home" feeling was all over the place!!!
Beautiful combination of Croatian traditional seaside architecture combined with modern interior design made me want to come back to Villa Luna for sure 'cause it has everything you need for a perfect holiday... And not only in summer period!!! :)
The villa was everything I thought it would be, and even more, due to nice people who also made my vacation special.
The old city of Cavtat is situated on the hilly part of the wooded peninsula Rat. There are new settlements along the coast, and the whole of Cavtat is overgrown by Mediterranean vegetation, with the ever green pine and cypress trees. There are more than 5 miles (7 km) of sandbanks, clean sea water, sand beaches and bays, making Cavtat one of the most sought after and visited tourist resorts in the Dubrovnik area. The locals also call Cavtat the air spa, since the unique fusion of the sea and vegetation make it ideal for all those with breathing problems.
The buildings that have remained from the time of the old Dubrovnik Republic add special charm to the old city. Cavtat was carefully built according to the regulation plans prescribed by the Republic, and the result was the present-day look of its old part where L’Una Residence is nestled. A larger part of the monuments of history and culture belong to the fine but modest Renaissance architecture with some traces of the Gothic style: the Rector's palace, fortifications, city walls round the city, squares, St.
Nicholas' church, the church dedicated to Our Lady of Cavtat and the Franciscan monastery. There are also numerous remnants of the ancient settlements to be found, Illyrian, Greek and Roman, old walls, fortifications, ruins, piles of them -spread all over the city and its surroundings. Many archaeological findings like: amphorae, parts of capitals, architraves, friezes, mosaics, memorial tablets from gravestones, jewelry and coins, found covered by soil, witness the wealth and beauty of the ancient historic settlements on the peninsula Rat.
Even today it is possible to see the remnants of old streets, passages, remnants of the old amphitheatre near the Franciscan monastery, city walls and stairs that used to lead to the top of Rat, where, according to the legend and some historical proofs, there used to stand temples and the ancient Greek acropolis with the temple of Asclepius, later on the Roman Forum Augustum. Today the small hill is the place of the masterpiece of the great Croatian sculptor Ivan Mestrovic, and from there his St. Rock's chapel, the Mausoleum of the family Racic, dominates the view.
Cavtat is still a treasury of art, culture and historic wealth, kept in the Rector's palace, the museum and the churches, in the Picture Gallery and many family collections. Cavtat is the home town of Baltazar Bogisic, a 19th and 20th century scientist of world-wide fame, member of many European academies, Doctor of Law, a passionate collector and guardian of national folklore. Bogisic's rich cultural heritage is stored in the Rector's palace in Cavtat: the library with more than 22,000 rare old books, about 70 incunabula, a rich archive collection of enormous value, a collection of drawings of more than 10,000 items, a collection of antique coins and coins of the Dubrovnik Republic with about 1,500 pieces, a collection of old arms, an ethnographic collection, etc. The palace also stores the Lapidary with excavated objects and monuments from the ancient times. Here we shall also find the famous picture "Carnival in Cavtat" by Vlaho Bukovac, the famous Croatian painter from the 19/20th Century. Cavtat keeps many of his works: in St. Nicholas' church, in the Picture Gallery, in the church of the Franciscan monastery and in private collections.
St. Nicholas' church possesses a valuable picture Carmela Reggia Palermitana, a work of an artist from Dubrovnik, and the Franciscan monastery has the well known Polypthych of St. Michael by Vicko Dobricevic from Dubrovnik (16th c.). The cloister of the monastery is one of the masterpieces of Renaissance architecture. The Picture Gallery houses a large collection of valuable works of art, from the ancient to the contemporary times. The preserved natural, unique and exceptionally precious rural architecture, numerous monuments of the thousand-year-old history of this area, traditions that are hundreds of years old and have been kept through folklore, the distinctive traditional costumes of Konavle and the Konavle embroidery, the harmony of man's life and the nature …all this renders Konavle unique and yet to be discovered part of Croatia.
Cavtat remains the administrative and tourist centre of the Konavle region. Apart from historical attractions, Cavtat boasts some of the finest cafes and restaurants in the region. Guests of Luna Residence can take advantage of having a private chef from Cavtat’s most famous restaurant Leut cook for them.
