This marooned lighthouse provides total sanctuary from the city and terrific views of the pellucid Adriatic Sea.
This stately home comes with a grand piano, alarmingly expensive antiques and a walled garden with century-old Japanese Sago palms. Opulence is the word you're looking for.
Arguably, the heart of a holiday home isn't its sparsely equipped kitchen, but the outdoor terrace, where the party congregates to eat a long, lazy meal at sundown. This converted townhouse offers a stunning terrace with unparalleled views of the city and the bluer-than-blue sea.
Want to feel like a king or queen for the weekend? You couldn't get more majestic than this - an actual palace in the middle of Dubrovnik's main thoroughfare Stradun. The palatial furbishing of spindly staircases, lofty ceilings and mammoth Persian rugs makes this a royally decadent stay.
Standing elegantly above the city walls is this luxury 1920s villa surrounded by verdant creepers and climbing flowers. This fabulous stone villa looks like the sort of place F Scott Fitzgerald floated through on one of his Meditteranean sojourns.
A modernist slab of white stone and reflective windows, this rental offers splendid seclusion, located just outside of Dubrovnik.
Overlooking the historic St. Lawrence Fortress (which moonlights as the King's Landing in Game of Thrones), this apartment is hidden from view by a lush green canopy of vines.
Fabulously hip, this sleek apartment retains the original features of its adobe walls, while trendifying the classical building with polished oak, houseplants and a mezzanine bedroom.
This refurbished townhouse enjoys a fantastic location in the Old Town. Inside, unabated luxury awaits, with pretty pastel-hued interiors and contemporary flourishes.
If you've ever seen Grand Designs, you'll know how hard it is to pick a wall colour that complements the wooden beams of your freshly converted farmhouse. It's something we can all relate to. Determined to avoid this folly, the owner of this unique pad has blended contrasting interiors by several Croatian designers under one roof, with striking results.
