Dubrovnik, Croatia

Elena's Villa


Luxe multi-level manse


Eyeing the Adriatic

Oriented dramatically towards the sleepy Elafiti Islands that break the blue expanse of the Adriatic, Elena’s Villa is a multi-level, five-room hideaway on the quiet coast north of Dubrovnik. A heated, villa-length lap pool is almost as showstopping as that view, but the high-spec sauna, huge indoor and outdoor lounge spaces, barbecue and fully equipped kitchen add up to one of Croatia’s premier private stays.
