What a great place for a group wishing to be together but apart. There were 15 of us all staying for 10 days for a wedding in Dubrovnik. The set up suited us perfectly. There is a great pool with an honour bar where we could all gather. All our needs were taken care of, Villa Fontana is well looked after and exceptionally clean with Millie's help. Janet and Miro were on hand for all our needs. Villa Fontana is situated perfectly for a short walk to all amenities.

Cavtat has the whole package and would highly recommend a vacation there. There is plenty to do and is perfectly situated within striking distance of Dubrovnik.

Hopefully, we will be back soon and will recommend Villa Fontana to all our Canadian friends.

We were thrilled that you chose Villa Fontana for the whole family. It was so exciting to have a wedding and watch everybody go off all dressed up. It worked out well as all the apartments have private entrances so everybody had their own space.

Great location, near Cavtat and the beach. Very friendly owners who take a real pride in offering first class service. Very convenient for the airport but no aircraft noise. If you go to Mostar, beware the queue at the border! 2.5 hours! Maybe this was exceptional, but the mountain route may be a better bet. Worth the trip though

We have just come back from our holiday in Cavtat and stayed at the wonderful Villa Fontana.
Miro collected us from the airport and gave us a very useful short tour around the town.
Villa Fontana is well looked after, the pool and terrace area are cleaned everyday and sheets and towels are changed regularly by the lovely cleaning lady!
Janet and Miro are very nice friendly people and always went out of their way to be helpful and ensure we were happy.
We stayed in apartment 3 and it had everything we needed for our 10 night stay. The smart television was especially useful as it links to YouTube so on the one day of rain we had our 3 year old was easily entertained with Peppa Pig.
The Villa is only a short 5 min walk to the beach and a nice 15 min stroll around the bay to the town. It's so beautiful I looked forward to the walk. The walk to town is flat all the way which is definitely an advantage. Especially with a child.
There are plenty of places to eat close by, fabulous food and very good prices. Our favourite place was Pizzeria Dessertka (no.10) but the food was very good everywhere we went.
Villa Fontana is definitely the place to stay to explore stunning Cavtat. We had such a great time and are very much hoping to go back in the future.

We stayed in a 2 bed roomed apartment in Villa Fontana during August this year. Our apartment was lovely, very clean and spacious. Janet and Miro (the owners) are very friendly and extremely knowledgable on the area. From recommending restaurants to helping with day trips they really made a difference to our stay.

Villa Fontana is ideally situated. A very short walk to the beach and a lovely stroll into the village - where there are many restaurants all of which serve great food at good prices. Being on the flat is a real bonus - so many other apartments in Cavtat are up very steep hills that would make life very difficult and they don't all specify this in their details so beware!! The apartment we had was spacious and comfortable, The pool is well maintained. There is an honesty bar at the pool side which says a lot about how Janet and Miro view their guests. It is wonderful being only 5 minutes from the airport and the tour Miro adds on when he collects you from the airport is very useful. Towels and linen are changed regularly and things like soap, washing up liquid and loo rolls are provided which not all apartments offer.

Just got back from a week at Villa Fontana and I can't fault it at all. We were in one of the rooms rather than apartments but it catered perfectly to our needs and we had a balcony we could sit out on. Janet and Miro were lovely. We loved sitting out by the pool or on the terrace, both of which were sun traps! The villa is a 5minute walk from a pebble beach with some restaurants and bars, and a a 15minute walk along the coastal path to the centre of Cavtat with more restaurants.

We had a great time staying at Villa Fontanta. We were in the Fountain apartment which was lovely. It had 2 bedrooms and even a washing machine and a dishwasher. We really appreciated the short tour on the way to the Villa from the owner, it really made you aware very quickly of the area. The transfer time from the airport is 10 mins.

The villa is close to the beach. It is a stone beach so bring beach shoes to wear in the water. The beach is lovely, very child friendly. Less than 5 mins from the Villa.
The center of Cavtat is a 15/20 min walk from the Villa. You don't mind though as it is flat and along the water edge. The nearest supermarket is in the center so make sure you stock up.

We went to Dubrovnik twice which was fantastic. 45 mins to an hour on the Ferry. The boat leaves from the beach 5 mins from the apartment.

I would recommend Cavtat and the Villa. The owners were very friendly and the apartment is great. The pool is on the small side however it is more than adequate, the children enjoyed it. There is comfy cushions on the loungers and big parasols. There is also an honesty fridge for beer, juice and water. Cavtat is gorgeous. Lots of lovely restuarants, a great promenade and lots of yachts. It is really authentic and full of locals. However, there are not many shops if you are a shopper.

Dubrovnik was amazing. We walked the walls and went up the cable car. It was the highlight of our holiday.

Top tip. Bring your own cereal if you have children as the supermarket doesn't stock a huge range.
