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.
Tour each room to discover modern furnishings and high-end electronics accented by antique touches like fine rugs, desks and art. The great room will become a hub of activity for you and your guests, as you gather around the large, upholstered sofas to watch a movie, play the unique piano or dine around the elegant glass-top table. Prepare fresh ingredients in a sleek gourmet kitchen that features smooth stone surfaces and custom wood cabinets. You’ll find an excellent selection in the stocked wine cellar. A full gym houses both exercise and spa equipment, including a tanning bed.
Villa Bellavista’s six bedrooms are brightly decorated, complementing the riviera’s magical sunlight. The villa’s five beautiful bathrooms range from an old-world spa aesthetic to contemporary luxury. Five bedrooms reside in the main house, split among two floors. Two Master suites are found on the second floor, each with its own well-appointed en-suite. There are three more bedrooms downstairs, one with en-suite and two sharing a bathroom. The remaining bedroom occupies in a charming, self-contained guests house.
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. Head inland and discover Croatia’s burgeoning wine country. 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.
