Villa Bellavista provides proof that opulent luxury can span the ages. This eye-opening, six-bedroom villa is tucked into the rocky cliffs, directly overlooking the pristine blue water of Dubrovnik and the Adriatic Sea. The spectacular property is one of the oldest in the area and enjoys protected status for its history and masterful old-world architecture. Survey the walls of the Old Town during the day, and at dusk, gaze out to stunning purple sunsets.
Feel the rhythm of life slow to a tranquil pace as you emerge out to the villa’s vast outdoor spaces. Lush, terraced levels drop down behind the home, almost reaching the sea. In several areas you’ll find contemporary amenities, such as a long, heated pool, barbecue and private café house. In others you’ll experience the timeless beauty of colorful gardens, a quaint gazebo, columned pergolas and winding pathways.
Dubrovnik is a town synonymous with walking. The villa is a five minute stroll from the walls of the Old Town. Explore picturesque streets lined with buildings from the Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque eras. Rent a boat and tour the islands surrounding Dubrovnik. Or just sit along the harbor and watch ships float by, as they have since the Byzantine era.
