Villa Franica
Ranked #199 of 509 Speciality Lodging in Dubrovnik
Reviewed 28 June 2011

This villa was rent for one week shooting. It was a perfect place, calm and silent. The villa is little bit isolated, far from traffic and noise, downhill, 30m from shore, with a look of a secret property. Near the villa, there is enough parking place for a mini bus (20 people) and for four staff cars. Very good for private and discrete events. Ideal for 10 people living in. For more people, it is ok but just for events . The villa is well decorated, traditionnal stone outside, and modern luxury neutral inside,well furnished, combination of the past and the present. 10 minute far by car from Dubrovnik old city.

Dear Mayajohnes,

Thank you very much for reviewing our Villa Franica. Yes, definitely, our villa is not ideal only for a relaxing holiday, but it is also perfect as a venue for special events, weddings, shooting... So thank you once again from all of us here at the Pervanovo.

We recently stayed at Villa Franica with 3 families -- My parents, Our friends and their 2 young kids and my family (husband, me, 5 year old). We have stayed in many luxury resorts and villas and we were very, very impressed by Villa Franica.

First let me start by saying Pave the manager was terrific. Even before we stayed she was quick to respond to emails and very helpful. Once we got there she met us at our prior hotel and lead us to the villa (we had a car, otherwise she would have arranged for our transfer). After arriving to the villa we forgot our passports at the prior hotel and Pave did not hestitate to go back for us, get them and then drive them back to the villa. To further provide kudos to Pave -- during our stay we had a small issue with the water pressure and I emailed Pave -- within 10 minutes a repairman was at the door!

As for the Villa: The approach is a bit rough looking as there is a dirt road that goes by a mix of homes and some vacant land. That said, it's worth it - as the villa is at the end of the road and very private. The villa is beautiful inside and out. The kitchen is small but functional and the outdoor space ( which is huge) makes up for it. Everything is well stocked and well-appointed. The outdoor space is really great...there is ample dining space and shaded areas as well. I don't think the web pictures really show the size of the space.

Within walking distance of the villa is Copacabana beach (2 blocks roughly where you can get food for a casual dinner, and then extending beyond that is a great path that winds along all the hotels on that side of Dubrovnik. It makes for a great walk and there are also a lot of dinner/drink options. There is also a grocery store just a couple minutes by car, and many other dining options nearby.

Old town is a very short drive away (10 min) and at first i was a little hesitant about this (wanted to be able to walk there) but it turned out to be great to be a bit outside of the tourist craziness of Old town.

In a nutshell, we were very happy with the villa and would highly recommend it.

More generally if you are looking for a great restaurant in old town I would suggest Oliva. It's pizza but is REALLY good with friendly service. It was recommended by our tour guide and we ended up going twice.
