Villa Zena has so many treats in store for you. This stunning, contemporary villa, nestled in glorious countryside in the tranquil, authentic village of Brgat Donji is just 8km east of the fabulous medieval town of Dubrovnik. The natural surroundings lend themselves to relaxation. The accommodation available at Villa Zena is the lower floor and the fantastic gardens and terraces. The owners of the villa live on the top floor, though they have a completely separate entrance and do not use the gardens and terraces so you have complete privacy in this exceptionally well-maintained villa.

Villa Zena is the perfect place to escape hectic everyday life and to enjoy the delights of the countryside yet be within easy reach of Dubrovnik, the stunning beaches of the Dubrovnik Riviera and boat trips to the sensational Elaphiti Islands. Villa Zena boasts 4 gorgeous bedrooms on the ground floor, sleeping eight lucky guests.

The mostly grey and white villa has been decorated and finished with artistic flair throughout. The open plan living area is a contemporary wonder with classy, contemporary furnishings, striking artworks and a stunning, gleaming kitchen. A huge corner sofa, beautifully accessorised with colourful scatter cushions, sits in the perfect position to watch the enormous television at the end of a busy day. At the other end of the room, you will find the stylish, sleek kitchen with its central island and trendy stools where you can enjoy delicious feasts. There are four bedrooms in total, three being doubles and one with twin beds. The master bedroom enjoys a superbly comfortable kingsize bed and an amazing, artistic feature wall, again all in shades of grey and white with the occasional colour pop. It certainly has the wow factor! Next door is a beautifully tiled bathroom with a large walk-in shower. The second bedroom enjoys a double bed and is yet very effectively decorated with an attractive colour panel. The third bedroom is another grey and white haven with a stunning feature wall and a comfy double bed adorned with luxury linens. The final bedroom offers twin beds and beautiful decoration. In total, there are three exceptional shower rooms to share. They are all immaculate with beautiful tiles and top-of-the-range fittings.

Though the interior of Villa Zena is truly sensational, the outside spaces certainly compete. You will enjoy a fabulous terrace which offers remarkable countryside views. It boasts a fantastic summer kitchen which includes an ice maker, barbecue, dishwasher, fridge and a brilliant alfresco dining area. You do not need to go back into the villa for supplies! Again it is an incredibly stylish space with the very best of everything! You will enjoy some unforgettable evenings here. The 35 sqm swimming pool is amazing. It has a function for artificial waves and a waterfall, so you will probably spend hours in Luxurious loungers surrounding the poolers. There is also a garden area with lounge chairs that you can move around and a separate area for table tennis. Villa Zena is a true, away-from-it-all paradise.

The owners are incredibly helpful with suggestions for restaurants, excursions, boat hire or anything else you may need. They also offer you the experience of a traditional delicious evening dinner after a long day of sightseeing. Although they live upstairs, they will ensure you have complete privacy.

Villa Zena enjoys a very scenic location in Brgat Donji, a very sleepy, charming village 8km east of Dubrovnik. You will enjoy this tranquil, countryside location yet be within very easy reach of Dubrovnik and the wonderful sand and pebble beaches of the Dubrovnik Riviera. Close to Brgat Donji, you will discover other pretty villages including Gornji Brgat, Plat and Mlini.

Mlini, 4km from the villa, is a small, idyllic fishing village located half way between Cavtat and Dubrovnik with a charming harbour, a bakery, supermarket, a lovely pebble and sand beach, cafes and restaurants and the most stunning sunsets. Mlini gets its name from the numerous fresh water wellsprings that used to power the local flour mills in the past. From Mlini, visitors can take a water ferry to visit Dubrovnik Old Town. You can also visit Lokrum where some of Game of Thrones was filmed and enjoy a relaxing, peaceful day with a delicious picnic or a visit to the popular saltwater swimming spot named the ‘Dead Sea’.

Cavtat is 15km from the villa and only 22km from the border of the stunning Montenegro. It is very pretty, hemmed in by mountains and lush swathes of pine and cypress forest and is rich in cultural history. It boasts beautiful beaches, crystal clear waters, many ancient necropolises dotted around and a wonderful promenade lined with fishing boats and artisan shops. There are several museums and galleries. You will find some lovely restaurants in Cavtat where you can sample the delicious local cuisine.

Dubrovnik Old Town is incredibly beautiful. With its breathtaking natural beauty, rich historical heritage and fantastic array of restaurants, cafes, bars and unique shops, it is extremely popular. Visitors soak up the romantic atmosphere of its narrow streets, admire the countless monuments, taste the delicious city’s rich gastronomic delights and be left breathless with its harmonious beauty. You can taste signature dishes such as rozata, kotonjata or black risotto along with local wines. If you are lucky you will get a table by the harbour.

Another excursion that is an absolute must when staying at Villa Zena is a boat trip to the Elaphiti islands. They are stunningly beautiful with caves, sandy idyllic beaches and incredible charm

The seaside village of Milni is delightful. It enjoys a lovely beach and several cafes and restaurants. The Dubrovnik Riviera is a fabulous pick for families with safe beaches, impressive hiking trails, biking tracks, a clutch of interactive museums and lots of fortresses for would-be knights and princesses to explore.

Exploring the Elephiti islands by boat, discovering the scenic bays, hidden caves and golden sand beaches is a wonderful day out for children. The hosts are happy to help you rent a boat. Kolocep Island is known for its architecture and villas and its unspoilt bay. The island of Lopud is home to lovely sandy beaches and ancient monasteries lined with olive groves. It is truly idyllic. On Sipan Island children can explore the local wildlife and enjoy the crystal blue sea. If you decide to visit the islands, you can swim, snorkel and make magical holiday memories.

In Dubrovnik Old Town, Harry Potter and Game of Thrones fans will be delighted to spot scenes from the films and programmes. You can book a Game of Thrones walking tour or a Game of Thrones escape room to challenge yourselves. Children love walking the high walls, visiting the aquarium and taking the cable car to the top of the mountain.

  • Loved our stay!

    on 19/08/2023

    We loved our stay at Villa Zena, the house is lovely and the pool, table tennis and pool table were great for our kids. The outdoor kitchen was great for eating outside and fully appointed so was really easy for us, the ice machine was a particular bonus given how hot it was. Lastly Jelena was a great host, with really good communication and the extra thorough mid stay clean was excellent. Thank you!

  • Wonderful home!

    on 05/08/2023

    What a wonderful home and a brilliant host. We had the most amazing time. The property was beautiful and had everything you could need. Jelena was welcoming and friendly and welcomed us with treats and bought us cake in the middle of the week. Thank you!

  • Lovely house!

    on 27/08/2022

    Lovely house with superb outdoor dining/eating space and swimming pool. Interiors are very well decorated and have good spaces. Great bathrooms and plenty of good quality amenities. Both the inside and outside kitchens are fantastic with everything you need to cook and eat both outside and inside and are very well equipped and quite new. The whole space is very clean and the house has good linens and bath towels, also available good quality towels for the swimming pool. The host Jelena is fantastic and very welcoming, offering local specialties and coffee supplies for the espresso machine. We had a wonderful time and definitely recommend this property. Hope we will have the opportunity to come back some day!
