Villa Ella

croatia – sleep & estate MASTER

Secluded island country house with views that stretch for miles

This cosy fully renovated pool residence is situated on the island paradise of Šipan, just 30 minutes away from Dubrovnik. Thanks to its natural beauties, Šipan was the favourite island of Dubrovnik's aristocracy and it is still today an oasis of green and sanctuary of tranquillity. Set in almost two acres of olive groves and gardens, family-owned Villa Ella offers all you need to fully relax and unwind: a harmonious home, the perfect climate, unforgettable panoramic views over the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic Sea, help on hand when you need it, a host that cares…

The small and passionate team takes care of every guest's wishes long before they arrive. Taking care of their transfers and pre-stocking, propose adventure trips and island hopping, plan massage or yoga sessions. A warm welcome makes them feel at home right from the start and the devoted staff stay at their disposal for breakfast and housekeeping, in-stay deliveries and wine suggestions. They assist the guests to discover secret beaches and outdoor sports on the island, encourage them to get to know the region, its traditions, its gastronomy.

This recently renovated authentic Dalmatian house has five bedrooms, three en suite and two that share two bathrooms on the same floor, sleeping a total of ten guests. Up to four more guests can enjoy Villa Ella with the special glamping formula. With the nicely furnished glamping tent set up in the olive grove, the holiday gets an adventurous upgrade. Large terraces and the infinity pool area with summer kitchen invite guests to slow down and enjoy al fresco dining. For sports enthusiasts, there is a table tennis table and a bocce field.

Restored to bring out the simple, natural beauty of this home, beamed ceilings, white walls and vibrant natural fabrics enhance its rustic character. The whole interior decoration is inspired by the vivid colours of fruit that grow all over the island. By using the backdrop as its influence the villa has kept its original charm.
