Villa Samba is in a beautiful location in the townland of Plat nestling beneath some dramatic mountain scenery. Dubrovnik is 30 minutes away by bus. Cavtat, Mlini and Srebreno are 5 - 10 minutes away, also by bus. The stop is situated just above the apartments. There are two very good quality restaurants a short walk from the Villa Samba. There is a lovely stoney beach about 15 minutes down a steep hill, no problem going down, but good fun going up! A moderate level of fitness is therefore required, to fully enjoy this beautiful area.
The accommodation is roomy, and of a high standard. There is a well appointed kitchen, air conditioning and a balcony with fantastic views of Cavtat Bay. A swimming pool was nearing completion at the rear of the apartments.
The owners, Nikola, Anna, and their son Toni, were fantastic hosts. Toni gave us a full presentation of all the points of interest in the area and how to easily reach them. Nikola drove us on arrival to the main supermarket in Srebreno to stock up. A very nice touch. He also treated us to his wonderful homemade libations. Cherry Brandy, Grappa (rocket fuel!) and red wine!
All in all, we found this to be a wonderful relaxing holiday. It's a place to chill, not party! The only thing that might concern some clients is that there are no supermarkets, nearby. The nearest being in Mlini and Cavtat, to which you have to get a bus. However, we turned it into positive by enjoying the beautiful views from the bus and the resort of Cavtat.
We cannot wait to go back next year!
