The golden walled city of Dubrovnik is one of the most celebrated beauty spots of the Mediterranean – a harmonious showcase of Venetian art and civil, religious and military architecture from the Renaissance and Baroque periods.

 

 

 

The Villa Argentina was built as a gilded private residence at the beginning of the 20th century and converted into a hotel complex in the 1950s, thus creating an exclusive enclave just minutes from the gates of Dubrovnik’s old town. The location of Grand Villa Argentina offers guests the opportunity for a short walk into Dubrovnik, to learn of its coloured history, or for shopping in the boutiques of the walled city.

The hotel offers various facial, beauty and body treatments, massages and therapies, a fully equipped gym and an indoor swimming pool, sauna and whirlpool to help guests relax. We do hope that you can join us for a week of entertaining Bridge amongst the delights of this beautiful city.

As ever, we will organise two interesting and cultural excursions:

 

Excursion 1- Dubrovnik Sightseeing & Cavtat / Konavle

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

A professional guide will assist us in discovering the delights of Dubrovnik during a sightseeing tour, on foot, of the Old Town, surrounded by ramparts and fortresses. We will visit the Franciscan monastery with one of the oldest pharmacies in Europe and then travel to the old town of Cavtat where we will visit Vlaho Bukovac’s house, one of the most famous Croatian Secession/Impressionist painters. Lunch will be served at the restaurant Leut in Cavtat which has a beautiful location and terrace, off the promenade.

After lunch we continue to Konavle, the southernmost region in Croatia. We arrive at Ljuta and visit an authentic watermill dating back to the times of the Dubrovnik Republic, where we will be welcomed by girls dressed in traditional costumes. We will try dried figs and local drinks before returning to Dubrovnik.

 

Excursion 2 – Elaphite islands

Elaphite_Island

 

 

We will embark on a traditional Dalmatian boat for a cruise along the majestic City Walls, around the peninsula of Lapad and towards the Elaphite islands. On the island of Sipan, we visit one of the best preserved summer residences in Dalmatia – the Skocibuha Residence. Next stop will be the island of Lopud, the second largest and most developed of the Elaphite islands. With its mild Mediterranean climate, the lush Mediterranean and subtropical vegetation as well as its interesting maritime history, Lopud is an exceptionally attractive destination.

Lunch will be served at the restaurant Obala located just a stones throw from the water, serving some of the best fish and seafood. After lunch we slowly cruise back to the port of Gruz while making a last stop on the island of Kolocep. From the port of Gruz we will be transferred back to the hotel by bus.

 

There will be an informative Bridge programme led by Jack Stocken who will teach Andrew’s lessons and supervise the set hands. The package price does not include flights and transfers as group BA flights are not available until October.

 

Please book early as last time the summer holiday was fully booked by January.
