The hotel sits on a horseshoe shaped bay, next to a medieval Franciscan monastery.

Victoria and Molly are here to help give you the inside track.

The rooms are comfortable and well-equipped, and the hotel has a large terrace, where meals are served, and the bay and its sandy beach are a stone's throw away. Guests can relax and soak up the warm Mediterranean sun on the beach, or enjoy walks around the peaceful, car-free island. Lopud is just nine miles from Dubrovnik, and the two are linked by a regular boat service.

Villa Vilina's restaurant offers serves Croatian specialities using fresh produce such as figs, grapes, tangerines and olives from the villa's own gardens. Try some of the home-made rose brandy.

Why we love it

The welcoming Vilina family has lived on Lopud for more than 200 years so if you want to know what to see or where to eat, they will know.
