What we think

dubrovnikweddings-swirl21-1024x84b

This Villa is located on the island of Kolocep. Most wedding parties that take place here will return the night of the wedding and find their accommodation in Dubrovnik.  A return boat can be arranged at 1.30 – 2.00am.

Due to the size of this venue, it is less suited for smaller weddings that want privacy. During the months July and August there is a rental fee to be paid if less than 80 guests attend, during other months this is not the case.

Our suggestion is that you need 50-60 guests or more for this venue to work for you.
