Suburbs of Dubrovnik have been favorite locations for the extravagant residences of the wealthy and powerful Dubrovnik elite, who got wealthy thanks to navigation and shipping. It enabled them to escape the noise and crowds of Dubrovnik, while still being close enough to visit the city whenever needed. Artisans and merchants from Italian cities together with local bourgeoisie transferred many commercial practices and culture from their homeland (communication,services, spatial and social networking). Dubrovnik's maritime development and the growth of Dubrovnik's fleet depicts the rise of the bourgeois citizenry. One of them was Bizzarro seafaring family (first time mentioned in 1630) originally from Peljesac peninsula, which at one point had 16 sea captains on various ships. By marrying a girl from the family involved in the same trade, Bizzarro family besides marital ties got this estate as well as professional connections. Estate famous for its red fasade, changed quite few owners through centuries and the villa and its garden got neglected for a while.
Finally, Villa Bizzarro with its gardens got restored and today proudly presents us Old World Charm. We can honestly say this is one of the loveliest, countryside villas with a great history going back to 16th century. Once you arrive, the owners will make you feel like a long-lost relative. Combine this wonderful hospitality with an exceptional concierge, beautiful setting , a laid back atmosphere and you will quickly relax into the rythm of this magical place.
Present owners spent time restoring the place, creating a mix of modern interiors within a 16th-century landmark building. The secluded property makes a great base from which to explore the local area (Srebreno, Mlini, Soline, Cavtat), from the hot Konavle wine scene to lost-in-time villages. All this and more is waiting for you on this weeklong sojourn to rural Dubrovnik area, where you’ll walk, bike, play tennis or enjoy a full-day boat trip cruising the Adriatic Sea. Stop to swim in a few spots before retiring to your rustic villa home for the evening. Seize the opportunity to live like Dubrovnik's bourgeois citizen and make memories that will last a lifetime.
The estate, centered around countryside villa, it is not 'all mod cons' but that's the point. This five-room hideaway is the kind you might wish for in every tourist-worthy town. Though it is in the heart of the large plot of land (20 000 m2), it is small enough to feel as if you are at a chic friend’s home. Its rooms are impeccably designed by the owner and feature comfortable beds and interiors. The country-style kitchen is well equipped and the pool is perfect for a refreshing poolside Cocktail at the end of the day. Once you enter the courtyard, you feel as if you are in a rare world that has its own pulse. That difference is this place’s great charm — it is the kind of intimate and relax place with real character that is a dying breed in an age of very modern, high tech houses and resort chains.
