  • Description


    Hi there! We are a big family in a small hospitality business :) located on a little island of Lopud, an hour of boat drive from Dubrovnik city. Through warmer part of the year we run a hotel&restaurant business in a family building, stone house where the first business on the island was opened, at the very begging of the 20th century. My wife and I choose the island living for our family with three little kids in hope we give the kids and ourselves a freedom in living style, more recreation and communication, so as chance to meet many different cultures, so it can be beautiful and challenging at the same time. The business itself always needs some improvement, and we are very opened to trying to incorporate modern and cozy, relaxed style of vacation for our guests. Hotel has 12 rooms and the restaurant is a-la-carte style, with a big waterfront terrace.

    Lopud is a small island, with only 100 residents in the non seasonal part of year, so it is primarily very relaxing and meditational destination. It is rich in nature and art history location, with many bike and walking trails, clear caves, small secluded sand beaches. It is a true getaway and a place to change pace from a fast way of life ( however, there is a strong wi fi connection :)) Surrounded by other little islands in Elafiti archipelago it is a great place to swim, dive, drive a boat, sail, windsurf, explore. Only an hour away of a boat drive is the gem of Adriatic and big historical city of Dubrovnik ( GOT fans will sure have the best days walking around the city walls and film locations) Also, we as family are eloquent in many languages, have an interesting background history, and are always in the mood for big chats and discussions:)

    What else ...

    The island is connected with the mainland by a boat and a ferry, together 4-5 times a day. There are plenty of public and private secluded beaches and rocks to walk to and have a nice swim or just relax on the sun. Everything is within walking distance, and we can provide a bike for longer routes - on the other side of Lopud there is a wonderful big sandy beach with shallow and clear sea.
