Enjoying a prestigious, elevated spot in the picturesque village of Orasac, overlooking the gorgeous blue sea and the stunning Elafiti Islands, Villa Helena offers luxurious accommodation that will thrill the most discerning of guests. With five sensational bedroom suites, exceptional living spaces and a beautiful terrace, this beautiful villa is a very popular choice. It is located just 14km from Dubrovnik's city walls and just 1km from the nearest beach. Though there are wonderful attractions nearby, you may find it hard to leave this idyllic sanctuary!

Orasac, just 20 minutes drive from Dubrovnik, enjoys a history of old origins and invading pirates. Its valley views, its hilltops draped in olive and orange groves, its stunning beaches and beautiful buildings will fill your Instagram account. You will want to immerse yourselves in local ways in this authentic village. It is one of the prettiest spots on Croatia's Dalmatian coast, nestled at the foot of Vracevo Brdo, otherwise known as the Sorcerer's Hill. Stemming back to the 10th century, this very attractive village was historically where Croatian artists and aristocrats escaped from Dubrovnik. The pier at the beach takes visitors over to the Elaphite Islands.

Villa Helena is a high-tech, high-end, ultra-luxurious hideaway where guests enjoy incredible treats. Its terraces, balconies and most of its rooms offer phenomenal sea views, beautifully furnished spots where you can relax with your favourite tipple enjoying magical sunsets. In addition to absolutely stunning living spaces and gorgeous bedroom suites, the villa offers a superbly equipped gym on the upper floor with a cross trainer, bicycle, yoga ball and yoga mats amongst the equipment. Those fitness fans amongst you can exercise with first-class equipment. The main living room offers exquisite, contemporary furnishings together with a very large television and a very modern feature fire. The separate living area is perfect if some guests want to enjoy a quiet read or if children want to play. The dark-toned kitchen is a masterpiece that will delight your group's chefs. It is all in black with a wooden breakfast bar; it is sociable and striking. The dining area is brilliantly positioned so that you can dine with a view. Alternatively, you can dine alfresco watching the sun go down or under the stars.

Each of the five-bedroom suites offers a beautifully dressed king-sized bed, a stunning ensuite bathroom and a private balcony. You will not have any unhappy guests at Villa Helena. Every bedroom is beautiful, a quiet, luxurious haven where you can wake in the morning, open the doors and enjoy the gentle breeze on your faces or pop out to the balcony for your morning cup of coffee. One of the bathrooms offers a bath and shower, but they all offer top-notch showers. There are televisions and safes in each of the bedrooms.

The terrace is stunning with an outdoor shower, a gorgeous infinity pool, deluxe loungers and umbrellas, an alfresco dining area for ten guests and a barbecue. The endless sea views are mesmerising! For an extra cost, guests staying at Villa Helena can enjoy some additional services and treats, including villa pre-stocking, airport transfers, private chefs and butlers, babysitting or nanny services, wellness treats, boat charters, jet skis, kayak and paddleboard activities and excursions.

Orasac is a fabulous destination on the Dalmatian coast. This small but mighty village enjoys a fascinating history, beautiful buildings and a wonderful, authentic atmosphere. You will discover a pretty beach at the foot of the village, an immaculately clean swathe of sand and pebble. With narrow, meandering streets full of pretty flowers and hilltops swathed in olive and orange groves, the village feels as though it is a place that time forgot. Its 15th century Our Lady of Orasac Church is very attractive, and its Arapovo Castle hangs above the Adriatic. There is a good line-up of mini-markets, restaurants and cafes. Surrounding the town are family farms where olive oil is still pressed traditionally. The Dubrovnik Sun Gardens are a ten-minute walk away from a private beach and a wonderful array of watersports.

The City of Dubrovnik is a twenty-minute drive from Villa Helena. It was dubbed as the 'Pearl of the Adriatic' by George Bernard Shaw. Thick city walls enclose this characterful, atmospheric medieval town. Inside, you will discover the Stradun, the main thoroughfare, together with many churches, monasteries and palaces. Its picturesque shops, restaurants and historical sights are an absolute delight. There is a fantastic atmosphere if you can get a table for lunch or dinner in the
charming, bustling marina and port. Dubrovnik is an up-market destination enjoying huge popularity and a fantastic gastronomic scene. There are three entrances to the walled city, including Pile, the main gate, Ploca by the port, and Buze. Buze Gate will take you in via steep staircases. The market in Gundulic Square sells classic candied orange peels and figs. Visitors can take a ferry to Lokrum Island between May and September, brimming with fragrant pine trees, lush grassy picnic areas and hundreds of birds chirping away. If you leave the Old Town through the Ploca Gate, a lovely panoramic walk along Frana Supila Street is lovely. You will enjoy stunning views over Dubrovnik and the sea.

Just south of Orasac and before you get to Dubrovnik Old Town are the delightful resorts of Stikovica and Zaton, both of which are snuggled on the gorgeous Dalmatian coastline. They are beautiful, with breathtaking views over the shimmering blue waters and encased in greenery. A pretty promenade is brimming with buzzy bars and eateries and a shingle beach that is great for snorkelling. Zaton is located in the Bay of Zaton in the Zadar Channel. It is known for its typical Dalmatian architecture, unspoilt nature, rich cultural and historical heritage, and beautiful scenery. Remnants of life and culture in Zaton date from the beginning of the Bronze age. The town enjoys some fabulous buildings and remnants, including St Nicholas Church, built at the end of the 11th century. Venetians and Liburnian tombs and boats built the Kastelina tower at the end of the 16th century.

The amazing Arboretum Trsteno is within easy reach of the villa and is worth visiting. It is the oldest renaissance garden in Dalmatia. It developed from a park surrounding the summer residence of the Gucetic-Gozze family and existed as far back as 1492. The gardens are stunning with Japanese banana trees, bougainvillaea, evergreen magnolia, many types of cactus and other exotic plants. It also includes many old stone sculptures and has been used to film Game of Thrones.

Mount Srd can be reached by cable car, car or hiking from Dubrovnik. Mount Srd boasts amazing views. You might want to hike back if you take the cable car up. You can take a delightful path in Bosanka leading back to the Old Town.

The Peljesac Penisula is a premier wine region of Croatia. Visitors can tour the local vineyards and sample the local wines, stopping at the charming villages of Ston and Trstenik. It is a beautiful excursion, particularly if you are not driving!

About Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik is one of the world’s most beautiful walled cities, and one of the most interesting places to stay in Europe. The old town is a knot of limestone streets – worth getting lost in, to stumble upon elegant palazzi and baroque churches. Beyond the sturdy medieval fortifications is a stunning rocky coastline, dotted with pebbly beaches, while islands cast adrift from mainland Croatia are just ready to be explored.

While you’re enjoying one of our fantastic villas in Dubrovnik you may well want to explore everything else the region has to offer – so we’ve put together this handy travel guide to give you a little help and inspiration!
