This summer was our second stay at Villa Busovina, we have previously been here five years ago, and it will definitely be the only place where we will spend our future holidays in Dubrovnik. The rooms are very big, comfortable, clean and nicely decorated. The location is very close to the extremely lively old city and yet it is very well shielded from its noise and bustle, so you can always enjoy good night rest after an evening spent in the city. The yard is very green and well maintained, with and excellent sea view. Rastko and Slavica are lovely hosts and they will do everything to make your stay a very pleasant one. Lapad beach, probably the largest in Dubrovnik and the one we visited most, is easily accessible using buses 4 and 6 from the station near the Hilton hotel, which is at around 7 minutes walk from the Villa. Lokrum island, an excellent place to sunbath and rest in the nature, is also easily accessible with boats from the old city harbor which make the connection every 30 minutes. All beaches in Dubrovnik are pebble, not the greatest in my opinion as I prefer the sandy ones, but this is fully compensated by the very clear and calm sea which provides one of the nicest swimming experiences. One thing to take into account about Villa Busovina is that the road to the old city involves around 200 stairs, which are downhill on the way to the city and uphill on the way back. I wouldn't say that the route very challenging, but you will need a decent physical condition if you're planning to take it a few times a day. Also, a thing to take into account is that while Dubrovnik is a very beautiful city and one I would recommend for a summer holiday, it is also on the expensive side. Villa Busovina compensates for that though, as it is an excellent value for the conditions it offers. I highly recommend as an accommodation if you are planning a holiday in Dubrovnik.
