Ideally situated amidst the protected green landscapes of Rijeka Dubrovačka, Villa Ruzza is only a fifteen-minute drive away from the sparkling old town of Dubrovnik. Rijeka Dubrovačka is a fjord-like valley where the River Ombla meets the Adriatic Sea, known for its pretty villages and the beautiful wildlife to be glimpsed along the riverbanks. Here, nature lovers and city dwellers alike will be enchanted by all that the Dubrovnik region has to offer.

The ancient, labyrinthine streets of Dubrovnik offer the perfect excuse to spend the afternoon wandering in the sunshine, taking in the city’s wonderful cultural landmarks. A UNESCO World Heritage site, Dubrovnik’s medieval old town is home to a magnificent Baroque cathedral, enclosed within imposing fortress walls which offer sweeping views of the city. After a day spent enjoying the historic sites and bustling marketplaces of the city, visit a local tavern to sample traditional Dalmatian delicacies such as black squid ink risotto or pašticada, a slow-cooked beef and pasta dish. A sip of rakija, a local brandy made from plums, pomegranate and other fruits, is a tasty way to finish off a leisurely meal in Dubrovnik. Meanwhile, intimate wine tours and olive oil tastings are another great way to get to know the city’s rich gastronomy.

For a different kind of day out, why not visit Mljet National Park, a stunning nature park located on its own green island? Ferries to the legendary shores of Mljet depart from Gruž harbour, only a ten-minute drive away from Villa Ruzza. An hour-long journey across the turquoise waters of the Adriatic Sea will take you to the pretty port village of Sobra, where you can rent a bicycle or catch the bus to reach the untouched natural beauty of the national park. Home to hidden beaches, woodland walking trails and beautiful saltwater lakes - including the Great Lake, which features a small island with a twelfth-century monastery - the island is a hiker’s paradise. Pack a picnic full of delicious local produce and spend the day here, basking in the sunshine and the unforgettable scenery.

Beyond the city streets of Dubrovnik, the shimmering Adriatic coastline beckons, offering visitors a treasure trove of rugged beaches to explore. Only a ten-minute stroll from the old town, Danče Beach is a secluded cove where locals like to take early-morning swims in the crystal-clear water. The nearest beach to the city is pebbly Banje, located just a few minutes away from Ploče Gate. The shallow waters of Banje are great for family-friendly swimming, while the beach’s close proximity to the city makes it a very popular spot during the summer season. Roughly a twenty-minute drive away from Villa Ruzza, on the peninsula of Babin Kuk, Copacabana Beach is ideal for the whole family, with plenty of convenient amenities and water sports facilities available. Meanwhile, the spectacular Elaphiti islands of Koločep, Lopud and Šipan offer secret sandy coves, ideal for sea kayaking adventures.  

After another exciting day exploring sun-soaked Dalmatia, make your way home to peaceful Villa Ruzza in time for a sunset swim, before a relaxing dinner on the terrace as the stars begin to appear.

Villa Ruzza offers the ideal setting for a relaxing family holiday, with its private swimming pool, lush green garden and peaceful countryside vistas. The Dalmatian coastline offers a treasure trove of gorgeous beaches and natural beauty spots, while only a fifteen-minute drive away, the dazzling old town of Dubrovnik lies waiting to be discovered.

With its winding limestone streets and ancient walled fortress, Dubrovnik is a magnificent city for families to explore together. Spend the morning walking the city’s sprawling walls, or for an exciting afternoon in the sun, take a trip in the famous cable car to the panoramic viewpoint at the top of Srd Hill, where you can marvel at the breathtaking sights of the old town and the surrounding islands, as well as the turquoise waters of the Adriatic Sea. Later on, enjoy a well-earned ice cream in the old town or make your way to the popular shores of Banje Beach, where you can take a refreshing dip in the ocean.

Water babies will love spending sunny days at the beach, where toddlers and younger children can splash in pristine, shallow waters and teenagers can enjoy a wide range of water sports, including paddleboarding and sea kayaking. Meanwhile, the scenic hills and fragrant pine forests on the outskirts of Dubrovnik offer fantastic, family-friendly hiking and biking trails.

For a day trip to remember, take a boat trip to the magical Elaphiti Islands, where you can enjoy woodland walks or a leisurely afternoon swimming in the crystalline waters of secluded beaches. Some boat tours take in the sights of the stunning island of Koločep, home to the iridescent waters of the famous Blue Cave. Mljet National Park on the island of Mljet is another great place to experience the wondrous natural beauty of Dalmatia.

For something a little different, the popular Cadmos Village Adventure Park is a half-hour drive away from Villa Ruzza. This eco-friendly adventure park offers visitors a wide range of family-friendly activities, including guided archery and exhilarating zip-lining experiences in the Croatian sunshine. Later on, make your way home to your peaceful villa in time for a family table football tournament, before snuggling up for a night of stargazing on the terrace.
