“Gruda greatness”
Reviewed June 2, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Our flight and hire car delayed us 2 hours upon arrival at Villa Petrosa. We didn't arrive until 11:30pm, and the host Niksa was there to greet us. He was very welcoming, taking time to give us an overview of the area, and setting us up with WiFi and showing us the property.

Throughout our visit, Niksa was very helpful, replying to emails promptly and phonecalls. We couldn't have hoped for a better host; attentive, yet not overbearing.

Villa Petrosa is a beautiful villa. The heated pool is big enough to lounge in and very clean. The property has been furnished to a high standard, with air con in each room and quality fittings.

The view is great from the balcony, with a sweeping view of the mountains. Being on an upper level, you are not overlooked giving you privacy. We bought some lovely pork chops from George the butcher in the shop below, and had a great evening cooking them on the outside grill.

The property​ is above the local butchers on the main street of Gruda. The town is small, with a small convenience shop, a post office and a bank across the road from the butchers below you. There are 3 bars a minute walk down the street, and a well stocked supermarket next to the bars.

The town is very lively in the mornings, with the locals going about their business. You can sometimes hear the butcher chopping away in the mornings, but we are early risers, so was not a disturbance for us.

Gruda is well situated if you have a car. (The property has it's own private parking bay.) The town is 30 minutes from Dubrovnik Old Town, and 20 minutes from Cavtat. It is a 15 minute drive to Molunat, where the private lagoon that accompanies the villa is located.

The lagoon is secluded and private. However, there are a lot of steps down to it, so more suited for adults or older children. Once down there, the view is spectacular and very peaceful. Access to the sea is via ladder and is immediately deep. There is a shower, sun loungers and shade and is a good spot for sunbathing.

Overall, Villa Petrosa is a great hub for exploring Croatia, and relaxing in between excursions.

“Great holiday location”
Reviewed March 29, 2016 for a stay in October 2015

My wife, children and I all really enjoyed our stay here, but you absolutely need a car to make the most of this location. The guy who owns the property, Niksa, is really friendly and helpful. It's an ideal location to go into Dubrovnik from for a few hours every now and again. Dubrovnik is far too busy to stay there all the time. Would recommend getting the boat taxt in from Cavtat. This is also a great location to go exploring Montenegro, particularly around the bay of Kotor, into Hercig Novi, Perast and Kotor. It's definitley worth a trip, just bring your passport. We also got great use out of the pool, which is heated. The highlight of this location though is access to the spectacular private beach and swimming area that comes with this property. It's about 15 minutes away in Molunat, but we ended up going there every day it was that good.
