About This Listing
Perched on the saddle of a wooded peninsula set between two bays, so you're never more than moments from the water and the historic village of Cavtat with its wide promenade, fringed with palm trees and cafes, running along the harbour front.
The apartment is a simple 2 bedroom with an open plan kitchen living dining room.
There is a lovely double bedroom with a secluded balcony looking out over the old town. The second bedroom has a single and a double bed.
All rooms are air-conditioned and have a fan for those who prefer.
The kitchen is is fully equipped with two fridges.
Outside there is a terrace which is shaded by a vine. The terrace has a large table with seating for ten. Beyond this there is a large garden laid out in rough grass (best to wear sandals) with sun loungers. There are lovely views of the mountains from the terrace and garden.
The apartment is hidden away top of the Rat peninsula at the heart of historic Cavtat. The waterfront is a few moments away through the old historic streets. There you will find a full range of cafes bar and restaurants.
At the entry to the historic quarter there is a supermarket, a bakery, fruit market and pharmacy in the village. Additionally there is a tourist office and bus station where regular buses to Dubrovnik stop.
It is possible to book excursions by boat to Dubrovnik (a favorite trips of ours) and nearby island from a number of tour operators near the church.
To the rear of the property is the pine forest that wraps around the peninsula and village. A path lead from here to the cozy grill restaurant "Rokotin" (fish and meat menu) and a great small pebble beach.
Unfortunately Barry was not able to meet us when we arrived but the caretaker who lives upstairs greeted us and helped us with our bags. The location of the house is absolutely fantastic, a small trek up the hills but minutes away from the waterfront and beaches. There are several beaches in Cavtat, but we found our favorite around 10 minutes away from the house which had a lovely beach bar too. The house was well equipped in terms of furniture, kitchen utensils, beach mats and lots of guidebooks. There were two spacious bedrooms, one with a balcony and the other with an extra single bed. The open plan kitchen made cooking dinner lots of fun. There was also a lovely terrace (shown in the picture) where we enjoyed our breakfasts. I really recommend it for a group of friends looking for a relaxing and quiet holiday (which is what we had!). Cavtat is also a great location to be close to Dubrovnik but not in the busy and expensive touristy areas.
