This is an amazing villa! Very well equipped, brilliant swimming pool, the most amazing views, quiet, peaceful, super clean, gorgeous outdoor space, it is a real gem. Ivo the owner is the most kind and helpful host. We had a little "incident" with our car on our arrival, and he sorted it straight away for us. We were greeted with fresh fruits, vegetable, home made wine, olive oil and lemoncello on our arrival and were even given gifts when we left. Nothing was trouble for Ivo, who supplied us with wonderful veg and fruits from his garden, and brought us homemade cooked summer vegetables for our lunch one day. I recommend the boat trip from the Hawain café down at the beach. And a meal at the local taverna about 50 yards from the villa. Staying at this villa was a truly amazing holiday and we wouldn't hesitate a second to go back there.
We stayed in august as a family of four and were stunned by how beautiful the villa and gardens were. It’s always a bit nerve wracking choosing a summer holiday and you wonder whether the photos match reality. I can honestly say they do and we loved our stay and didn’t tire of looking out over the sea, sitting by the pool and reading our books in the shade. The house is not overlooked and in a quiet location - just ideal.
The house is extremely well equipped and I don’t think there was anything that we didn’t find. And the air conditioning was much appreciated in the August heat!
Ivo and Sanya (I hope I spelt that right) are very generous hosts and allowed us to pick our own vegetables and fruit from the garden, and one day made us a delicious fish lunch from fish they’d caught that morning. They also gave us some
Home made wine, lemoncello and wonderful tasting olive oil from their own olive trees. I have to admit I’m always a little concerned when reviews tell you the hosts are on hand as I do like my privacy on holiday but Ivo gets this absolutely spot on - abailable when you need a question answered but very discrete and unobrsisive for the rest of the time.
Orasac is 20 mins from Dubrovnik which you can get to by bus but a car is good if you want to explore further. The village has a small but well-stocked shop, a quaint taverna and a bar all of which we’d recommend.
All in all a womderful and very relaxing week and I would definitely recommend to friends and family.
Thank you Ivo and Sanja.
This villa and location are the best we have experienced.
On arrival we were warmly greeted by Ivo and his family. They were all so helpful and generous and regularly provided us with a variety of fruit, herbs and vegetables picked from the garden. Ivo also provided us his home made grappa, limoncello and carraffes of red wine!
The villa, a refurbished farm house, offers breath taking views from a very large veranda decked in natural stone and marble. The pool is more than ample and has a good sized lounging area with sunbeds and parasoles.
Orasac itself benefits from a great restaurant (Savonari) and fantastic bar in a traditional setting - both 200M away. Plus a beach restaurant (Hawaii) 0.5 miles away.
There is a local shop and a supermarket in Zaton 2KM away so you can purchase what little Ivo doesnt provide you with!
The town is well serviced by buses to/from Dubrovnik (35 minutes journey) every hour although a car is nice to have to explore the beaches.
The place is perfect for enjoying a pool/beach type holiday but with easy access to Dubrovnik.
We will definately visit the area again and look to book this villa as our first choice as it has so much to offer.
This is the second time we have stayed here. Our first time and my associated review was two years ago. All I can say is it is perfect. We have had many family holidays over the years and my only regret is that I did not discover this place sooner. It ticks all the boxes but most of all the hosts are amazing with their generosity of spirit and time. Looking to book again next year.
