Originally constructed as a fifteenth century summer residence for aristocrats, Villa Pugliesi is currently enjoying a renaissance as a luxury vacation rental. Completely walled, this private residence in Zaton Bay offers tranquility just minutes from the famous old town of Dubrovnik, a UNESCO World Heritage site that can also be reached by boat.
The grounds at Villa Pugliesi feature a lovely heated swimming pool, a fountain and plenty of sun loungers. With a barbeque, an alfresco dining set for sixteen, an outdoor sound system and an indoor wet bar, the consummate entertainer will make everyone feel at home in no time. Other perks include an ice maker, juicer, satellite TV and iPod dock. Your reservation includes housekeeping, or you could opt for the fully catered option with chef, villa pre-stocking, driving and babysitting services.
The terraced Mediterranean gardens are delectably fragrant and peaceful. With a private chapel, this property makes a great site for an unforgettable wedding. Two front terraces overlook picturesque Zaton Bay. On the ground floor, an open plan area features the bar, a formal dining table for sixteen and cozy lounge chairs by the fireplace. Upstairs, enjoy browsing the latest magazines in the central library and salon. Original stone walls and arches make an impressive backdrop for contemporary furnishings and decor throughout the residence.
Six gorgeous bedrooms with king size beds and en-suite bathrooms accommodate up to fourteen guests at this non-smoking villa. Each luxury suite provides a bidet, television, mini fridge, air conditioning and in-floor heating. Three suites provide ocean views, and the master suite provides direct access to a private terrace. Sleep soundly amid the finest bedding and accoutrements!
During your stay at Villa Pugliesi, the Elaphite Islands are right out your window, while the island of Mljet seems within arm’s reach. When out on the road, you might choose to drive out to the Konavle villages and learn about the local silk history of this region. The nearest beach is also just a four minute walk away. Whether you have come with family or friends, keep in mind that two other tantalizing countries, Bosnia and Herzegovina as well as Montenegro, are both a day trip away!
