Monastery for a Night?

by written on September 28, 2008

This "Former Franciscan Monastery" is now a Bed & Breakfast offering 8 rooms which include singles, twins, double and one "family" room with a kitchen. Rooms are absolutely simple, perhaps spartan, and rather small, especially the family room. Linens are included as is breakfast which is served at the closeby Hotel Villa Kvaternik, which also offers the use of its services and facilities to the Monastery's guest.

Each room has a private bathroom and TV. There is daily maid service but all rooms are non-smoking. Check in/out times are: Check in time is 2:00pm and check out time is noon. Deposits are required; the cancellation policy is strict, and rather unforgiving -- meaning punitively expensive!! We did not stay at this Bed & Breakfast but I think that the cancellation policy would prevent me from making a reservation here. However, that being said, the monastery would be a unique experience.

Unique Quality: The unique aspects of the Former Franciscan Monastery certainly include its beautiful location which is right on the waters edge; the fact that it is a 15th century building with an inner courtyard conducive to meditation, peace and tranquility; and the adjoining church “Our Lady of the Snow” which has many valuable works of art. Many nice cafes and shops are steps away from the Monastery and many other important Cavtat sights are within easy walking distance.

Directions: The Former Franciscan Monastery is on Cavtat's waterfront promenade and adjoins Our Lady of Snow Church. It is approximately at the foot of the promenade which begins the uphill portion.

This 15th c monastery is easy to miss because it is small and unassuming, but the location is excellent...right off of the promenade that follows the coastline. My room was small, but had a private bath, and a small window facing out to the water. At night the sound of the water hitting the shore was very relaxing, and I head very little noise from passersby on the promenade...maybe I was lucky though.

The interior courtyard with its rose bushes is very sweet, compared to the somewhat sterile appearance of the rest of the monastery. Although the room was clean, and even had a television, I found no soap in the bathroom. I don't know if this was an oversight on someones part, but I always bring some just in case.

The price of the room (39E for a single) does include breakfast which is served at the nearby Hotel Villa Kvaternik. I had a very early fly the next day so Diana, from Villa Kvaternik, prepare a plater the night before, of bread, cheeses, and salami. Diana was very helpful by loaning me an alarm clock, and lining up an early taxi to pick me up.

Unique Quality: Excellent location...great view if you have a room in the front of monastery. Restaurants, pebble beach, and boats to Dubrovnik are just steps away. Also must mention that you don't have to climb stairs to get to this place!

Directions: Follow the promenade through the village until you get to Our Lady of the Snow Church. The monastery is right next to it. There is no sign in front of the monastery, just a door with a bell to your right.
