Renovated 19th-century farmhouse above Sudurad
8 guests · 5 bedrooms · 5.5 baths
Find both historic charm and modern appeal at Villa Ella. This pretty vacation rental on the Dubrovnik Riviera began life as a farmhouse in the 19th century, and while it’s been lovingly renovated to 21st-century luxury standards, it still shows its heritage in stone walls, beamed ceilings and countryside views. It’s a lovely retreat for groups of up to eight friends or a large family.
The villa sits on nearly two private acres of olive groves. From its hillside perch, you can look out over green slopes to the sea while lounging by the infinity pool, trying out local fare on the barbecue or sipping a drink at the al-fresco dining table for twelve. The house also has a satellite TV, Wi-Fi and, for your comfort and convenience, air conditioning and laundry facilities.
Behind the stone walls of Villa Ella is an open-concept great room with living and dining areas. Here, the traditional meets the modern, with a beamed ceiling stretching over clean-lined furnishings and colorful accents. The separate kitchen is fully equipped and has an inviting breakfast table.
The villa has three bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms: all with double beds, including a master bedroom with a honeymoon-suite-worthy jetted tub. The other two bedrooms each have one twin bed and a twin size pull-out bed and share access to a hall bathroom. Like the great room, the bedrooms have juicy accent colors inspired by the fruits that grow in the garden.
A holiday at Villa Ella is a chance to discover a hidden side of Croatia. The villa is located off the beaten path on the island of Sipan, just a few minutes’ drive outside the fishing village and port town of Sudurad. You’ll need to take a ferry or taxiboat to and from Dubrovnik if you want to explore the city, but you’ll get to see the coast as few others do.
