A monumental building from the 16th century rests near the UNESCO’s pearl Dubrovnik, on the Elaphite island of Lopud, with untouched, stunning nature and rich cultural heritage, right next to the beautiful Lopud waterfront and next to the famous botanical park. The Mayneri baronial line, which is known, among other things, for its possession of impressive European buildings such as Turin's Palazzo Ceriana Mayneri, owned it for hundreds of years.
Originally, this is a Renaissance summer house, renovated in 2007 according to the strict conservation architectural rules into a specific, nostalgic, romantic, and impressive boutique hotel for selected guests. One year later, it received the prestigious epithet of the distinguished British Observer, which positioned it on its list of the TOP 20 boutique hotels in the entire stunning Mediterranean.
As you approach this magnificent property, you are struck by its spaciousness, built by generations, and the gifts of nature. Just the sight of the building, the luxurious and tame gardens crisscrossed with paths and hidden resting places, the wafting scents of the sea, and the view into the astonishingly beautiful and mysterious distance overwhelms you with the most beautiful feelings.
The main building is divided into three floors and has a total area of 258 m2. There is an entrance hall, reception, restaurant, kitchen with a pantry, dining room, and a toilet on the ground floor. Everything with standards and is recognized by the tourist trade. The two ground-floor terraces offer various views of the promenade and peaceful surroundings, and the shade under a magnificent old magnolia tree is synonymous with the richness of the heart and all the senses. The first floor has two bedrooms and a bathroom, as well as an astonishingly rich and calming view of the great mobility of vessels and human outlines, as well as the blue and green of the fairy-tale Lopud Bay and the neighboring island of Šipan. The remaining two rooms on the first floor look and smell like the green, dewy splendor of the noble garden and the botanical park. On the second floor, there are three bedrooms with a bathroom, and when the lower floor offers such spectacular views, words are needless to describe the top floor.
In addition to the main building on the property, there is also an annex with two floors. Its ground floor offers a bedroom, a bathroom, a staff room, an additional toilet, and a storage room. During the renovation, a two-room apartment with a separate entrance was designed and built on the first floor.
It is worth mentioning that, in the rear part of the property is a dilapidated property with an area of 137 m2, with renovation in line with the splendid surroundings that can be used to obtain a house in a quiet part of the property or an additional accommodation unit.
The garden can practically be defined by a multitude of completely natural gardens, divided by paths, hedges, and places to "breathe in more air and relax during the day or evening." Just the example of a hundred-year-old pine surrounded by bushes tells a lot about how much care was taken in this "renaissance of life" for greenery and the quality of life, and this continued for half a millennium.
The Boutique Hotel, recognized and awarded, was given a name that is simple and grandiose as a whole - "The Villa." The fullness and consistency of thousands of practical big and small effects, as well as those that you create yourself by imagining this incredible building, a long history that still lives on the island of Lopud, where it seems nothing is impossible.
The future owner can continue with the Boutique Hotel or put his name on it and keep all these benefits and unique property for his peace of mind by turning it into a private residence.
