I stayed here because Apartments Dobrasin was overbooked. But it was just as good as we'd hoped. It's nothing special, but it's big, clean, with good wifi, shared balcony and a powerful air conditioning unit. The location is ideal for catching a bus to Dubrovnik, but it does require a steep walk up the hill from the main centre of Cavtat. It's a beautiful walk, though, and you can take a bus if you want. There's also a well stocked supermarket around the corner.
Niko is a nice guy who runs the place with large family in the ground floor apartment. It's so safe here that they just left the door open for us when we arrived (quite late).
For 48 euros a night it was the bargain of the entire Balkans trip.
Villa Fontana is attractively situated in the hills a short walking distance from the beaches at the northern end of Cavtat with views out towards the mountains and glimpses of the sea. There is a pleasant small pool, with ample sun beds around it. in the garden, which is mostly surrounded by open countryside.
The owners were very helpful, collecting us from the airport, which is only a short distance away, and returning us there at the end of our stay. They also gave us a guided tour of the town after picking us up, and provided us with useful information whilst we were there.
We stayed in an apartment, which was well equipped and comfortably furnished, whilst our friends stayed in a bedroom across the corridor. The apartment had 2 bedrooms, although we used only the larger one, and 2 shower rooms, one en-suite. The other bedroom, which had 2 single beds, was quite small.
We had two reservations about the apartment, the first being that it was quite a trek to the nearest supermarket, about 15 to 20 minutes each way at a good walking pace, especially in the heat (high 30s when we were there), and the second being that the only air conditioning is in the living area, so that we had to leave the bedroom door wide open to get it cooled down.
Lovely pansion close to centre.
On the hill....You can become real sportsman by walking up and town the hill...
Therefor not vey comfortable for elder people.
Apartment has small kitchen, therefor suitable for longer period.
Last July my family and I traveled to Cavtat, Croatia. Our friends had just returned from their week-long vacation and could not stop talking about how good off a time they had. We made our reservations through www.aura-cavtat-holiday-apartments.co.uk
Our plane from Tel Aviv landed pretty late at the Dubrovnik Airport - sometimes around 1:30a.m. My wife, our two kids and I were bit worried if someone would be waiting for us at all considering the time of our arrival and the fact that we need a rent a car.
Upon our arrival we called our agent from AURA Cavtat apartments (she gave us her phone number in case the plane is late or if anything went wrong) who kindly told us not to worry about anything and that she would be waiting for us.
With the lack of road signs on the way from the airport to Cavtat we somewhat had a hard time finding our way around and unfortunately we got lost once we drove into Cavtat. It was already way past 2 a.m. and our biggest worry was getting our kids in bed. We called our agent once again telling her our whereabouts and within 15 minutes she came to pick us up.
Our agent took us to one of the AURA SUMMER apartments that we booked based on her recommendations and it was exactly what we expected. We even found a bottle of local vine, some fruit and juices in the fridge. How great is that?! We we more than surprised, we were extremely happy!
Our entire vacation was amazing with the exception of our late plane arrival. Apartment that we stayed in was brand new- even had a washing machine which we did not expect. Bedrooms was very spacious and well lighted and the view of the Adriatic from our balcony was amazing. The kitchen very nicely equipped. All the rooms had air-conditioning and the living room had a satellite TV and internet access.
Very balanced relationship of price and quality of service!!!
Rented this apartment through Booking.com.
It's in the old town and close to the sea, restaurants and bus station, compared to some of the mountainside places on offer in town this is a great location, a little difficult to find - phone for directions and maybe car parking could be a problem, not for us we used the bus!
Anyway, the apartment, once we found it was lovely, everything we needed was there, clean and comfortable, a terrace (the 3 other apartments in the building had sea view so a little unlucky to have a garden view- never mind).
Ana was in charge, friendly and charming and very welcoming, enjoyed our all to short stay here.
