Nestled into the old town of Ploče, Villa Annette offers a secret oasis, with all the peace, privacy and tranquillity you could desire. Initially built in the 18th century, this charming property has been carefully renovated to create a stunning balance between old and new, with both modern and character styles throughout, that form a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
Tucked away at an arms’ reach from the Pearl of the Adriatic, this attractive town property hosts up to eight guests in its four bedrooms and pampers them with a gym and sauna area, outside pool, expansive lounge and dining areas.
From the moment you arrive at this unique villa, you can relax, offering all those luxuries that you have been waiting for, a true sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of day to day life! Coupling elegance and convenience into one, Villa Annette puts you in the prime spot to enjoy Dubrovnik to the fullest.
The beautiful living areas are spread over two floors, with luxurious décor and thick stone walls making the property feel safe and secluded. The principal, sociable living areas can be found on the ground floor, with a stylish, fully-equipped kitchen, separate dining area and fabulous lounge, perfect for entertaining.
There are two double bedrooms on the ground floor, with a further two on the first floor, all boasting en-suite bathrooms and luxurious furnishings, chosen for your every comfort. Villa Annette suits those looking to spend quality time with loved ones, listening to rest and restore and treat themselves to a piece of luxury.
Outside on the terrace, you will find the extremely popular wellness annexe, a place to escape and completely relax. Offering a gym, hot tub and sauna, the last of your worries will melt away! The private pool is perfect for kids and adults alike, with the glistening waters tempting you to hop in throughout the day.
The real gem of this property has to be the intimate dining terrace overlooking the Revelin fortress, the eastern tip of Lokrum and a splash of the blue Adriatic, a unique experience, to make each and every evening special!
In a prime location, you are only 10-15 minutes walk from the old town. Above the villa is a quiet traffic free promenade to the city, taking 15 minutes, that passes historic estates and stunning residences. Alternatively, below the villa is the main road connecting the old town and other parts of the city, where you can hop on a bus by the University or walk the shorter 10 minutes route into the old town.
Known to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Dubrovnik is now a UNESCO World Heritage site with good reason. Walk around the city’s medieval walls dating back to the 13th Century, discover the Baroque churches and palazzi in the pedestrianised city centre and dine well in one of the many upmarket restaurants specialising in local seafood.
The cable car up to the top of Mount Srdj offers stunning views of the city, sea and islands and keen hikers can walk back down! From Dubrovnik port, you can also discover one of the other islands in the Adriatic with a wide choice of boat excursions on offer.
The rocky beaches within walking distance may appeal to those of you looking to bathe in the sun but it's not far too long stretches of beach with a mixture of sand and pebbles, such as Banje Beach (2km) just east of Dubrovnik or Uvala beach (3km) on Lapad, a stunning area of Mediterranean landscapes and pretty swimming spots and beaches.
Should you wish to hire a car, there is a wealth of pretty villages and settlements to discover heading west along the Dubrovnik Riviera. Stroll along the sea-front promenade in Zaton (13km) and stop in a little restaurant to admire the view with a glass of chilled wine or head a little further to the ancient olive groves and picturesque beach at Orasac (16km).
Trsteno (19km) has a natural beauty and a long tradition of culture with many artists and poets living there or drive up the coast to Slano (34km) with its gentle bay backed by pine trees and olive groves.
Being so close to Dubrovnik means you have so many activities on offer with a wide range of watersports nearby such as jet ski, kayaking and parasailing plus boat rental and fishing.
You can also drive inland for further activities in the beautiful Konavle valley (around 30km) where you can explore an area that has retained its old traditions and customs. It’s an area excellent for walkers with many trails, and horse-riding is possible in the countryside and remote coastal paths of the region.
