“Perfect Croatian holiday, Lopud is heavenly..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

My wife and I visited Dubrovnik and the islands of Mljet & Lopud for a 2 week holiday recently. If we were to go back we would seriously consider just going to Lopud for the entire holiday. It's a beautiful and charming island and Villa Franka tops the whole lot off. Franka came to meet us off the boat and invited us up to her terrace for pancakes and a little meet-up with the other guests, a lovely family.

We were really made to feel completely at home. It's true what the other reviewers are saying - visiting Franka is like visiting a friend. Very helpful and perfectly obliging. The apartment we stayed in (ground floor) was nice and cool, and perfectly clean. Only problem was no hot water in the shower but we didn't even point this out because a cold shower was nice at the end of a day on the beach. (It's really hot here in August!)

Lopud has the most charming quay you could ever imagine. It stretches on for the best part of a mile, and life seems so calm here just sitting here in the evening and dangling your feet off the quay-side watching the sunset. It is one of the most special places I've ever been. People on Lopud are exceptionally friendly too. And Franka helped make our stay one of the most memorable of any holiday I've enjoyed in recent years. The only reason I'm dropping a mark for value is because all decent Croatian accomodation is not as cheap as you'd imagine coming from western Europe.

Room Tip: Ground floor apartment was very private and comfortable.

We stayed at Villa Franka with Huck Finn Tours. The location was perfect, just a short walk to the beach, shops and churches. The house is beautiful, decorated with elegant simplicity,and spotless.The breakfast was typical croatian food with offerings of omelet and fresh fruit. Franka and her daughters were gracious hosts and we liked visiting with them at breakfast.
We were grateful for having the opportunity to stay in a private home on the beautiful Island of Loped.

I found the information about Villa Franka on line (http://finestofcroatia.com/). From the moment I read Franka’s e-mail I knew we were in good hands. We are a couple with 3 young kids and wanted to have a “sane” vacation oversees. Franka organized our whole trip into detail. She met us with flowers at the Dubrovnik airport, accompanied us to our accommodation in Dubrovnik (which she found and it was absolutely perfect), and made sure everything was OK throughout or stay there as well as with out sailing trip afterwards that she also organized. When we arrived to her Villa on island Lopud we felt like visiting a fabulous friend, or a relative that one actually likes. Island Lopud is a quiet place with no cars and we felt very relaxed there because our kids could run and play freely. Only a few golf carts run to the other side of the island to transport tourists to Sunje beach (nice and sandy). However one can get there by leisurely 20 min walk as we did with our kids. The Villa itself is very comfortable, completely spotless, situated 1 min from the sandy beach (not Sunje beach). It has a very charming, quiet patio where Franka serves breakfast and snacks. My family is crazy for crapes (palacinke in Croatian) and Franka’s palacinke are perfect. She made them for us several times. She also included a complimentary dinner with our stay (stuffed bell peppers, AMAZING!) and once even babysitted our kids! It is possible to do laundry on premises (very important when you travel with kids). There are quite a few nice restaurants close by (3-5 min walk) right by the water (which is crystal clear blue). Our favorite one “Obala” (which means coast) would get 27 for food by me. We would definitely come to Villa Franka again and would recommend it for anyone. Fabulous work Franks, thanks for all!
