Villa Luna is nestled in Strossmayerova ulica, typical narrow, stepped street in the heart of Cavtat Old Town. Villa dates back to the 17th Century and is protected as National Heritage. The property was restored in space of one year, by a team of international architects Scott Brownrigg, leading architecture and interior design practice from London. The highest standards of construction were implemented to create a luxury 5 bed, 5 bathroom property with all necessary mod-cons, but maintaining the spirit of a 17th Century villa. Behind tall walls and typical Dubrovnik green timber double door is oasis of a cozy garden with two mature mandarin trees with incredibly flavorsome fruit, which provide natural shade to a large garden table. More mandarin and olive trees decorate the garden in terracotta pots, whilst aromatic rosemary and lavender circle tree bases. Owners discovered and restored a lead bathtub, which then became home to a bougainvillea.
A set of steps leads from the garden onto a generous terrace on the first floor. One part of the terrace is occupied with a 10-seater table with retractable shading, allowing guests to enjoy it all day. Both terrace and garden tables are a bespoke design by Scott Brownrigg featuring Patricia Urquiola tiles. Tip of the terrace has a hot tub/whirlpool, offering stunning views across Cavtat bay and open sea beyond.
