“FAMILY SUMMER HOLIDAY”
Reviewed July 19, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a fantastic family holiday staying at Villa Petra this summer,it was beyond our expectations and all the previous reviews are true reflections of the place.This was our first visit to Croatia and so we booked it with some trepidation!
We had no idea just what a beautiful location this would be to stay in until we arrived. It really is stunning , situated in wine and olive growing country with a backdrop of mountains.
We cannot praise our hosts Ivo and Petra highly enough for giving us a very comforfortable stay with personal service. Any queries before and during the holiday were responded to very quickly.
We stay in the top floor of the Villa, there is a private residence on the ground floor belonging to the family but they do not stay there so the whole villa and gardens is completely private.
Hiring a car is a necessity and we were given a recommendation by our hosts of a local hire company which worked out extremely well.
The villa is 15 minutes from the airport and our hosts arranged to meet us nearby so we could follow them to the villa.
They had kindly prepared a lunch of local cold meat and tomatoes and some wine .
We were told to help ourselves to tomatoes and apples and from the garden.
The pool as mentioned by previous reviewers is absolutely stunning and immaculately tended to by Ivo.
You can lie by the pool all day and evening and/or there are lots of places to visit.
Garuda is the local village,5minutes by car and has bakeries,supermarket, bank and post office and there are 3 wonderful restaurants in the vicinity
Dubrovnik is 45 mins away by car, an easy drive.
There are beaches 20 minutes away.
The border of Montenegro is about 20 mins away.
We would not hesitate to recommend this property .

“Beautiful setting. Perfectly kitted out. Lovely owners.”

We can't recommend Villa Petea highly enough. The house is about 20 minutes south of Dubrovnik airport, nestled in a lovely valley amidst vinyards and apple trees. It is very isolated, and although the little town go Gruda has 2 supermarkets and several cafes and bakeries, it is not within walking distance. So, if you are looking for wild nightlife, this may not be the best choice. If , however, you want stunning scenery, peace and quiet and a beautifully kitted out villa, you could not do better than Villa Petra. The pool is immaculately maintained and the property is beautifully landscaped with roses, lavender and Rosemary. There is an enormous outdoor brick barbecue with chopped up wood thoughtfully provided.

We were impressed with how well this villa was kitted out. Things provided include kettle, coffee pot, salt, pepper, sugar, hair dryer, insert spray ( although there were no Mosquitos, there were lots of little flying insects but they didn't bite), Tupperware, wifi, microwave, pool lilo and lots of other nice little thoughtful things.

The owner's daughter (Petra) speaks excellent English, and she and her family guided us to the villa which we never would have found without them. When we arrived, we found they had stocked the fridge with beer and juice and prepared a wonderful platter of meats, cheese, bread, tomatoes and cucumbers. They even left a bottle of the excellent local wine and welcomed up with local brandy.

if you fancy a night out, there are 2 lovely restaurants by a stream about 10 minutes away. Recommend the locally caught trout. Cavtat is about 30 minutes away and is a more lively, touristy destination where we had an outstanding meal at Buganvelia.

We really can't imagine a better holiday experience.

“Fantastic place, thoroughly recommended!”
Reviewed July 28, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We had a fantastic holiday, based from this house. The house has been built to a v high standard and is v well equipped. The pool and whole of the outside area is fantastic. The pool gets the sun the whole day so was generally v warm. There were sun loungers, parousels etc. There was also a large table to eat at outside (under cover) as well as an outside BBQ (in the shade by evening time) . We always hire a villa with a pool on holiday and we have no hesitation in saying this was the best one we have stayed in so far.
The owner and family were also v welcoming and helpful.

“Perfect, peaceful and fun!”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Loved the House Petra. Owners and family were very welcoming and friendly. The house is beautiful and secluded with excellent facilities. The advice and guidance from Ivo, Teresa and Petra was great. 20 mins from Cavtat. 40 mins from Dubrovnik. Also visit the quiet beach at Molunat! I would definitely go back and recommend.

“Lovely villa, stunning scenery with fantastic and caring hosts!”
Reviewed June 29, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Ivo and his family went out of their way from the very beginning to make sure we enjoyed every aspect of our time in Villa Petra. From the personal greeting and escort to the villa, the prepared refreshments which were welcome after our early start, to their personal goodbye as we left.

The villa is bright and welcoming and well equipped with modern fittings and technology (inc wifi). The pool (located in the secluded rear garden) is well maintained and enjoys glorious views of the surrounding countryside and the spectacular mountains to the north.

The first floor terrace is a great place to sit and eat whilst you soak in the stunning scenery.

Generally a great time enjoyed by all and we would definitely recommend it;.
