Dalmatia's sun allowed noble families in Dubrovnik to own villas in some very special locations. But the real jewel was the garden filled with fragrant lavander and lemon trees. Because of its unparalleled sea and sunset views all year round, many descendants of the noble families from southern Croatia would stay in those houses to avoid the heath in the Old Town. One such a grand place is lovely Villa Alba.
Villa Alba went through a full restoration and is now a dazzling property and ready to accommodate guests in any season. With elevated position, almost in the heart of town Dubrovnik it is a perfect venue for all kinds of gatherings. If you have a large group, be it an extended family holiday, a special celebration or a group of friends wishing to enjoy the Old Town Dubrovnik and explore the numerous nearby delights of the region, this villa has more than enough space indoor and outdoor. Relax and enjoy afternoon tea where nobel families have dined before with panoramic views across the garden terraces, as waiter serves you. Dining on the top garden terrace will give you a stunning, intimate view of the town below. Villa Alba is more than 300 years old villa and it has been renovated with refined taste, reclaiming where possible, characteristic features such as the high, decorated ceilings.
Villa estate has 2 entrances – one at the bottom street and the other one at the top level, with many stairs leading from the bottom to the top. If you are fit and agile you'll have no problem climbing up and down the stairs but we do not reccommend it to people with mobility problems.
A big garage located next to the bottom level villa entrance is suitable for 4-5 cars and is a great asset to this villa. Garage is accessible straight from the main street. From garage you can take an elevator to the 1st level where are 2 apartment style bedrooms with interconnected door. The same elevator will take you to the 2nd level where a meeting room is.
Right above the meeting room is an outdoor swimming pool ( size 7.30 x 3.65 m, depth 1.4 m) and bocce field and next to it is a garden with home-grown vegetables for tasty and healthy meals. On the left side of the main building is a professional fully equipped kitchen and barbeque place. Above kitchen is another double bedroom with en-suite bathroom; great accommodation option for guests who want to be separated from main group or ideal place if you wish to bring your personal staff. On the right side is sauna with an access from the garden.
At the top of the garden staircase the main house stands proudly. There is another kitchen with a living room plus 4 bedrooms allocated on 2 floors. The bedrooms are fabulous as they are all generously proportioned, sunny, en suite and each have double beds which can be separated, if guests prefer their own single bed. The subtle play of soft neutral colours and tones creates natural ambience and a luxurious atmosphere.
