Rustic Villas in Croatia

The Konavle region of the Dubrovnik Riviera is a haven for rustic villas in Croatia as it was once the area where the rich landowners of the Dubrovnik Republic had their beautiful summer houses. It retains its high end air with wonderfully picturesque cypress trees, very reminiscent of Italy with vineyards and olive groves covering much of its surrounding areas. Konavle runs down the coast just south of Cavtat Bay and has some impressive and pretty beaches like at Pasjaca and Molunat whilst not being far from those in Cavtat itself.

There are also some beautiful rustic villas in Croatia on the Dalmatian islands such as Hvar Island, Brac Island and Korcula Island – these Croatian islands are retain their provincial air and, of course, this authenticity is what is so attractive about them. Ask us to recommend some ideas…

The Istrian Peninsula is the continental part of Croatia and is well known for its rolling hills, green countryside and pretty hilltop villages. There are lots of lovely locations in traditional villages in the countryside and also on the sea but most of the rustic villas in Croatia are more inland. They are mostly old stone and built in the traditional style with large gardens and pools so if you are more focused on the villa rather than the location, and like traditional and rustic, then this area would certainly be worth a look. Obviously with more rustic villas the locations do tend to be more inland and less on the sea and this is the case in Istria – you would be likely to need a car with many of the rustic villas in Istria but are never too far away from the coast since it Istria is a peninsula so there is coast all around. There are also rustic villas in Croatia closer to the coast here too but they do get booked early due to their good locations so worth booking ahead of time.
