“Clean apartment, beautiful views, friendly owners.”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

Travelled as a couple via Thomson's sister company Simply Travel, in June 2009. As part of the package we had a hire car included, which was great as this is a really rural area and public transport seemed to be fairly non-existent.

The apartment itself was on the top (third) floor of a villa. The views across the water to the Croatian mainland were beautiful, as were those to the harbour and town of Trpanj itself. The villa is set back into the hillside and surrounded by greenery and flora. A short hop across the road (very quiet, no concerns about traffic here) takes you to the bathing platform, and the town is a two-minute walk at most.

Upon arrival, we were greeted by the owner, who exclaimed that we were probably the youngest people she'd ever had stay with her (we weren't sure how to take this but I'm sure there was no malice intended!). She'd left us a welcome basket containing bread, cheese, wine, etc. which was basic but nice to have anyway and kept us going until we could find a supermarket.

The decor of the apartment itself was basic but clean and tidy, and much roomier than we'd expected. There were two balconies - one off the kitchen/dining area, and another off our bedroom, which meant we could catch a bit of sun at different times of the day. We didn't really see much of the owner apart from when she was sitting on the terrace on the lower floor of the villa (which you have to pass to get out) - she always seemed pleasant and friendly however and we were made to feel very welcome. There was a BBQ on the lower terrace, which I believe we were welcome to use, although we never got around to it as we ate in the little restaurants in town most nights.

Trpanj is very much a quiet town, not suited to anyone after a busy nightlife, but this suited us down to the ground. There are a couple of supermarkets, and a handful of tavernas and bars which are low key but fantastic for fresh fish, brought in every day via the little harbour. It's a pleasant drive up the peninsula through similarly small villages towards the mainland - it's roughly 1h 45m to Dubrovnic this direction. Further up the peninsula, you can catch a ferry over to Korcula and other little islands which make for nice day trips. Most of the peninsula seemed to be dedicated to agriculture and in particular vineyards - some of which are open to the public which we took advantage of.

I'd recommend Maestral Villa to anyone looking for a peaceful break away from the hustle and bustle, but with plenty of options for day trips.

Reviewed October 22, 2011

We stayed at the smaller of the 2 apartments within the Maestral Villa for the first 2 weeks in October 2011, and can't recommend it enough. It is only a 2.5 hour drive away from Dubrovnik airport, in a beautiful coastal location on the northern side of the Peljesac peninsula. The apartment makes up one half of the top floor of the villa, which is privately owned by a Dubrovnik resident, who welcomed us on our first day before leaving us to it entirely - perfect. We chose the smaller 1 bed apartment as the bedroom balcony had views over the coast, and also caught the sunrise perfectly. The apartment was clean and well furnished, and we were made to feel really welcome, with a bottle of wine and some essentials having been thoughtfully left for us. Trpanj is quiet and peaceful and at the time we were there, was about to close for the end of the tourise season, so some of the bars and restaurants weren't open, but it was only a 20 minute (and beautiful) drive to Orebic, the largest town on the peninsula. We used our apartment as a base and explored the peninsula as well as the mainline. The clear waters and lovely mountainous landscapes, as well as fabulous food, made the holiday perfect for us - we would go back in an instant.

Room Tip: The smaller 1 bed apartment has better views from the 2nd balcony
