WHY YOU SHOULD GOLook forward to exploring the heart of Dubrovnik old town. Sip champagne on the clifftops of Montenegro at the Aman Sveti Stefan and enjoy the beautiful views of the azure waters from the converted 15th century fortress.
Up for a long week of indulgence on the glistening Adriatic? Look no further: we have the snip of the century. Head out to Dubrovnik and enjoy a luxurious stay at Pucic Palace, right in the heart of the old town, followed by a peaceful sojourn at the Aman Sveti Stefan in Montenegro, surrounded by natural beauty.
We can arrange from some of the most exclusive activities. Choose from visiting not one, not two, but three of Dubrovnik’s magnificent museums: Rectors Palace (think magnificent renaissance-gothic stone archways, carved angels and 18th Century furniture), the Enthographical Museum (built into a stone fortress) and the atmospheric Maritime Museum – full of enough maps, ships knives and pistols to shiver your timbers. If museums aren’t your thing then you can chose to head across the water to untouched Lokrum Island, to swim, sunbathe, or see the Benedictine Monastery hidden in the island’s natural forest, and sail back by sunset admiring the grand city walls. Then it’s time for some unbelievably fresh seafood overlooking the smooth tiled streets of the UNESCO world heritage old town, before resting your weary head in your five star boutique hotel.
The Pucic Palace, built inside the light stone walls of the beautiful Gunduli Square, is a haven of calm right in the hubbub of the historic city. The rooms are huge and luxurious, the vast terrace looks out onto the square and the sparkling sea beyond, and even better, it’s only minutes from Dubrovnik’s best beaches and chic nightspots.
After four nights in Dubrovnik you’ll be whisked off for a further four in the converted 15th century fortress of the Aman Sveti Stefan resort in Montenegro. Completely unspoilt and surrounded by panoramic views you can lie back and enjoy the serenity of the resort previously visited by the glamorous Marilyn Monroe and Sophia Loren.
Just to the north is the little fishing village of Budva with endless beaches and a vibrant nightlife. Revel in the understated elegance of the area, swim in the cliff top pools and be pampered in one of the resort’s spa cottages. Before you know it you’ll be sipping on bubbly watching boats bob on the Adriatic. Cheers.
