Villa La Luciole is a stunning three-bedroom stone villa with private swimming pool and superb views across the Konavle
Valley to the Adriatic Sea. The villa is located in the village of Dubravka – 3km from Gruda, 40km south of Dubrovnik and 15km from Cavtat, on the border with Montenegro. It is also just 15 minutes' drive from the Adriatic Sea. This scenic region is becoming popular for rural tourism and is often compared to Tuscany with its quiet surroundings, breathtaking landscapes, excellent restaurants offering local produce, and activities like horse riding, cycling, hiking and quad biking.
Villa La Luciole was completely renovated in 2015. The owners, both talented Croatian architects, have spent the last 4 years transforming the 18th century stone ruin into a beautiful casual elegant villa. The villa combines traditional rustic elements with contemporary pieces and up-to-date amenities. Inside, the use of light and space is exceptional and the décor encourages guests to relax.
