Island Koločep, part of the spectacular Elaphite archipelago is a sunny idyll, that still has an “undiscovered” sort of feel about it. It is car free, surrounded by warm, clean Dalmatian waters, criss-crossed by dozens of easy walking paths, has a lovely sandy beach and is inhabited by only 150 locals, yet only within a convenient, easy ferry or speedboat ride from the mainland and the cultural delights of Dubrovnik.

The village of Donje Čelo provides a number of charming cafés, a post office, a grocery store, a traditional Croatian wine bar, offering good local food and seafood specialties, a restaurant and a pizzeria, all within walking distance of the villa. So it is possible to enjoy the great sense of privacy and tranquility that the villa and island provide, but eat out at local restaurants, or head over to explore Dubrovnik, some of the other islands or even head over to explore the fascinating Montenegro.
