On arrival at the villa, some time later than expected due to incomplete directions, we were pleased to find a clean, furnished villa in line with the adverts.
After a good nights sleep and waking to a lovely view of Gruda and the mountains, we quickly realised that a number of things listed as being there were not: no barbecue, no dishwasher, no coffee maker, no toaster. We are not the sort of people to let this sort of thing affect our enjoyment but note that the villa is still listed on multiple sites as having these things even when the owner says it would be a problem to have them. The kitchen is also very small, so this villa would really suit somebody who wanted to eat out every night rather than feed a small family at the villa. There are some very good restaurants (Koraceva Kuca, Konavoski Dvori, etc) nearby so it could be done.
The villa is on the high street above the owners pizza shop and its proximity to the high street means that on a number of occasions we were confronted with strangers walking through the villa plot as a shortcut. Other than one night with very loud music coming from the restaurant, the nights were usually peaceful and quiet.
Location, was good with local shop selling basics and bureks. This would be a good base for Montenegro, Dubrovnik, Peljesac peninsula. Kupari, Cavtat and Mlini are all close as is Sokol Grad where a real character, George sells local honey, grappa and ornaments. For anything North of Brela, the Drive may prove too much.
Overall, great location, okay villa. Some honesty over amenities would help!
