Property description

Villa Matkovic is a delightful old stone family traditional villa situated in the heart of Cavtat’s stunning old town which is located on a wooded peninsula.

It offers a spectacular harbor view from its main terrace. The villa is within easy access of Cavtat’s restaurants and beautiful beaches which line the town’s charming palm studded harbour. The villa represents an excellent value for your money and would suit a family, two families or a group of friends.

Warm and friendly atmosphere, peaceful surroundings and splendid views of the Adriatic Sea, Cavtat, islands and Dubrovnik will ensure a vacation experience you will always remember.

Guests enter from the pedestrian only street into a hallway which leads into a lounge with kitchen and a door opening out onto the main sea facing terrace.

There are also two double bedrooms and a separate bathroom on this level. Stairs from the lounge lead up into the attic/roof where there is a separate twin bedroom, an open plan room which contains a double sofa bed and separate small extra bed (suitable for 3 young children or one adult) and a separate bathroom.

Manager info

About: I'm an entrepreneur who operates my own restaurant, catering and wedding facility in Zagorje - near Zagreb. Villa Matkovic is the family home where I grew up. It is my favorite place in the world to get away and relax. I renovated it for myself, sparing no expense, and enjoy vacationing there when I'm not working. I know that if you visit us, it will feel like home to you as well. It's the perfect recharge for a long year of work and an excellent escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Why Cavtat:
This is an old stone ancestral home that has been lovingly renovated. It is a shelter from the busy world, providing solitude and peace. It is in the center of town and provides a breathtaking view of the sea and city below. It has plenty of sleeping space and two open stone terraces. It's close to Dubrovnik and the airport without being close to the swarming summer crowds. The nearby beaches and locales are pristine and easily accessible.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Our location and proximity to everything while still retaining peace, comfort and solitude.
