Nestled away in the lush green Konavle countryside, hidden away from the hustle and bustle of modern life, lies the beautiful Villa Tereza. As you enter the villa through the impressive courtyard area it seems that time stopped centuries ago. Villa Tereza is a wonder of tradition and culture, a monument to a time when the aristocracy ruled the region, a time of nobility.
Villa Tereza has a long and wealthy history. The villa was originally mentioned back in the second half of the 18th century. Although the history doesn’t start there, in the 15th century the charming chapel located in the villa’s gardens was constructed. It can be also be assumed, although the history books are vague, that the chapel was built by a noble family that once upon a time owned the villa. The only remaining evidence of the villas existence today is a land right to the property by the Caboga in 1891. Villa Tereza has stood proudly overlooking the rolling hills of Konavle for centuries.
The courtyard, with a feature Konavle style window and a magnificent Cyprus tree in the centre, will leave you intrigued, this is an entrance to impress and it works. The living room oozes class, the fusion of the traditional and the modern is a feature that continues throughout the whole villa. The villa stands surrounded by a spacious and typically Mediterranean garden. Fling open the shutters of your bedroom and you’ll be greeted by a green oasis, a garden that makes the villa the ideal location for the whole family. The villa’s inviting outdoor heated swimming pool with hydro massage is ideal for keeping cool during warm summer months.
And there is plenty of room inside the villa to spread your wings with four bedrooms located on the first floor each luxuriously decorated. Three bedrooms have balconies with panoramic views over the gorgeous Konavle countryside, ideal for morning coffee or with a cocktail as the sun sets. There are 2 bathrooms on the first floor, one with bath and another with shower plus toilet on the ground floor. Each room having a special touch but each also highlighting the very best of Mediterranean design; Villa Tereza still has the feel of nobility.
Located in Čilipi in Konavle the Villa Tereza offers the ideal base for exploring the region. Konavle – a place in the very south of Croatia, is the most southern part of today’s Dubrovnik Riviera; a region with particular natural beauties and contrasts: mountain and valley, green hills and naked stone, the blue and the green. The historic Old City of Dubrovnik is a short drive away. The international airport is on your doorstep, making for a simple yet secluded getaway.
