A luxurious two-bedroom estate for four, Villa Emilija is tucked away in one of the most fragrant villages of Croatia. A treasure trove of restaurants and seaside attractions, it’s set in charming Mlini, located 11km southeast of Dubrovnik.

An amble from a pristine local beach, this sleek, inviting villa is a cocoon of solitude and calm. Boasting contemporary designs and elegant rooms, it greets you with soothing, white-washed décor and a sprawling outdoor garden that remains one of its biggest draws. Bask outside on the private manicured sun deck, flanked by rolling hills and lush foliage. A glimmering plunge pool is all to yourself, along with a wealth of modern facilities that ensure a pleasant stay. Pamper yourself with a rejuvenating massage under teeming parasols. Dig into al-fresco meals out in the gazebo or sizzle up the BBQ on wintery evenings. Cosy sun loungers and basket swings make for a comfortable siesta by the pool, while the property oozes a relaxing ambience throughout the day.

Inside, all rooms are adorned with soothing, natural hues. Elegant fixtures and snug furnishings radiate a gratifying synergy of style and serenity.
The indoor-outdoor living area is beautifully-designed, opening onto the garden with direct views of the pool outside. Large glass sliders allow abundant daylight. Unwind on the puffy, metal-hued L-shaped sofa and catch up on your favourite TV shows.

You’ll find modern elements around the house, including an airy, open-plan kitchen equipped with a refrigerator, toaster, stove, coffee maker, microwave and wine cabinet. You can even hire a private chef to whip up aromatic Croatian delicacies. Watch the kids take a refreshing dip in the pool as you settle down for an intimate meal in the 6-seater indoor dining area.

Both bedrooms are spacious and minimalistic, with dewy, white walls and neat flooring. Each comfortably accommodates two guests, providing king-size beds with elegant en-suite bathrooms. Glass windows overlook the pool, promising a restful night’s sleep. An additional shared washroom with a sofa-sleeper is available in the living room.  

Brimming with a delightful mix of activities and scenic points, Villa Emilija’s location is ideal. Take a private speed boat and explore nearby islands. Go on marvellous walks and take in the majestic beauty of Mlini.

Villa Emilija sits in the quiet, serene location of Mlini in Croatia. Once a quaint fishing village, today it’s home to some of the most sought-after beachfront attractions on the Dubrovnik Riviera.

A short distance from the villa, you’ll find an assortment of authentic restaurants serving delectable local cuisines. To truly soak in the flavour of Croatia, make sure to visit traditional konobas, which are small, family-run eateries using fresh ingredients and local produce.     

Take a private speedboat to the stunning Elaphiti Islands. Experience lapping waves of the Adriatic Sea and forage through fascinating caves.  
Explore a breath of landscapes and raw, unspoilt coastal beauty on leisurely walks along the lovely 2-kilometre-long promenade and enjoy a sundowner cocktail or two at the Sheraton Dubrovnik Hotel. Teeming beach shacks and neon-lit pubs are popular amongst younger tourists and partygoers.

Mlini also offers a myriad of historical sites. Witness rustic, abandoned mills, marvel at its age-stained fishing port and stroll around the heritage centre. Other attractions include the churches of Sveti Roko and Sv. Ilar.  
The famous city of Dubrovnik (11 km) remains a sought-after tourist attraction, famous for its cobble-stoned walls, historical museums, and various pulsating bars and restaurants.

  • We’d definitely look to stay here again

    on 19/10/2022

    We stayed in this beautiful villa for a week with our two young boys. It’s a bit out of town but so worth it for the seclusion and privacy the property offers. It was really well equipped with everything we needed and Mihaela and Ines were great hosts - providing us with food and drinks on arrival, and great recommendations for places to go and restaurants to eat at. Dubrovnik and Cavtat are both 15 mins away and Srebreno beach (our favourite we visited) was just 5 mins away.

  • Definitely a recommendation!

    on 01/10/2022

    Exactly as described in the listing, or better. The kitchen was better equipped than the one at my home. The house and owner has provided everything that was necessary or requested! Very comfortable bed and sofa. The pool was cleaned every day!

  • Highly recommend

    on 29/09/2022

    Stunning place outside Mlini. 20min drive from the hustle and bustle in Dubrovnik. Very new, clean and modern. Epic mountain view nestled in the Croatian countryside. We stayed here while we got Married in the city, it was the perfect place!! Michaels was very welcoming and accommodating.

  • Perfect

    on 22/09/2022

    Great accommodation, host very welcoming and informative. Clean, modern house perfect for our holiday.

  • A wonderful stay!

    on 11/09/2022

    Well what can I say?.. This villa is absolutely stunning! Really spacious, modern and beautifully designed. Very peaceful surroundings among the mountains, olive, fig, lemon and lime trees.

    Mihaela made us feel really welcome and gave us tips on the best places to go. Yes it’s a little far away from the old town but it’s so quick and easy to get a taxi to anywhere you want, and there’s a shop, bakery etc nearby too.

    We loved having a peaceful place by the pool during the day - and then grabbing a short taxi ride to the old town, Mlini or Cavtat for food and fun in the evenings - all incredible places with beautiful sunset beach/sea views, lovely restaurants and bars.

    We all booked a 60-min massage at the villa through Mihaela with magic hands Ivan! It really was the best massage any of us have ever had - so good that we booked him for a second massage later the same week.

    We had such an amazing, relaxing stay here. If you’re thinking about booking then definitely go for it - this was one of the best holidays we’ve had.

  • What an amazing stay here!

    on 02/09/2022

    We had a whole week to ourselves which was a lovely time to relax around the pool with friends and setting up BBQ dinners in the evening. It is only 15 minutes car ride to Dubrovnik and a great location to drive to other areas such as Ston and Cavtat. Mostar and Kotor if you fancy a drive to other countries are also only a couple of hours drive away.

  • Amazing place!

    on 20/05/2022

    We loved every second of our stay. The place had everything you could need and was so clean and well kept.More of a rural location and very private but Travelling into the city was super easy and taxis were readily available. It was nice to have a little escape from the busy crowds.There were plenty of beautiful beaches either a walk or taxi ride away. 100% recommend this place for a group or couple !

  • I would 100% recommend to anyone!

    on 16/04/2022

    This place is a dream! It was so much more than we expected. The area is very quiet so it was nice and relaxing to come back to after exploring Dubrovnik city. The way the house has been built has meant that the outside area gets sunlight all day, it was perfect! Dubrovnik old town is about 15 minute drive, it’s very quick and easy to get a taxi to and from the city!
    The house itself was immaculate, two big lovely bedrooms with en-suites and a big open plan kitchen fully stocked with all the utensils you might need and a relaxing lounge space with a big TV! Mihaela was very welcoming and gave us all the top tips and locations we might want to explore.
