Villa Agave, Dubrovnik

The villa is located on a rock, east from Hotel Excelsior and only a 5 minute walk from the Old Town of Dubrovnik. Its core is the old chapel of St. Lazarus from the 13th century, while the remaining part, according to the Conservation Department, dates back from 17th and 18th century. During his stay in Dubrovnik between 1875 and 1882, Sir Arthur Evans, famous English archeologist who discovered the remains of ancient civilization on Crete, lived in this house, and his Croatian contemporaries regularly made reference to this “amazing house” in Ploče.

Today, this former summer residence is a reminder of the times past and a building of great cultural and historical importance. Vila Agave today has 270 square meters of exclusively designed interior and another 400 square meters of specially designed space around the house. The villa has three exclusive accommodation units with furniture of unique design, VIP lounge, five terraces with an open whirlpool tub, spacious living room, luxury bathrooms and an outdoor pool. Particularly attractive is the old chapel with details from a distant past, rustic stone walls, and skillfully incorporated modernist and Mediterranean details. It was intended for rest and meditation. The house was destroyed in WWII, abandoned and without a roof until 1973. It was later renovated by famous Croatian painter Milovan Stanić who painted the fresco that still adorns Vila Agave’s living room wall. Another living room wall is adorned by a work of a famous Dubrovnik author Romana Milutin Fabris. Other walls are also decorated with precious art of Croatian and international authors from Štrok family private art collection.

Vila Agave has five beautiful terraces. The large one on the ground floor opens to a beautiful view of the old town. It has a small pool, while one of smaller, but equally beautiful terraces, has a whirlpool tub in the back. Open wooden staircase leads to the room on the first floor that also has a great view of Lokrum and the old town.
