The villa is set in the beautiful surroundings of the orchards and vineyards near Gruda and is only a 20 minute drive from Dubrovnik airport. It is an ideal location for exploring the area in and around Dubrovnik. It is also only a few kilometres from Montenegro.
We found the villa to be better than advertised. The three double bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, the outside barbecue and dining area is a perfect area for every meal. The games room has a substantial pool table, dart board and keep fit equipment (looked professional but not used by us). The pool area has stunning views. The pool is regularly cleaned and is pristine.
The owners are extremely hospitable and are only too happy to answer any questions you might have on things to do or places to visit. We were actually overwhelmed by their friendliness.
We were close to many interesting places. We visited Dubrovnik 3 times as it the major city in the area. Molunat is a quiet village on the coast only 15 minutes away. We loved the Montenegran village of Perast, a pearl we found by accident. Cavtat is a perfect place for restaurants with a sea view and is where you should get the boat to Dubrovnik rather than go by car. The Sokol Grad is a castle you can see from the villa and is worth visiting for the view alone. Gruda itself is worth stopping in, not only for the great pizzas but for essential groceries from the supermarket.
We would have no hesitation in recommending this fantastic villa and would stay here again when visiting this area.
We booked Villa Milicic for a fortnight stay with three generations of family in 2012, each one of whom has continued to rate it as one of the best villa and locations ever visited. It offers both excellent facilities to enjoy days at home and ideal location from which to explore the surrounding countryside. We became regulars on the water taxi from Cavtat to Dubrovnik Old Town, went island hopping in the Adriatic, explored Kotor Bay and Montenegro and drove up the Croatian coastline.
Although the indoor facilities first appeared small, we were delighted that conditions meant we could always eat outdoors in the fantastic open-air dining and play area. Local restaurants are excellent, including some in Gruda itself. Back home, there are wonderful terraces from which to enjoy sunset and sunrise.
Our memories are particularly happy of the welcome we received and the ongoing hospitality throughout our stay from the Milicic family. Mario met us at the airport, to get us orientated and we very much enjoyed learning about the history of the area from the entire family. Their insight and warmth brought the area to life, without being overly intrusive.
Very highly recommended.
