To the right of the main building is the summerhouse; complete with Finnish sauna and changing area with WC – convenient for days spent by the pool.

On the left side of the main building is a fully equipped professional kitchen and barbeque.

Many terraces around the villa offer comfortable corners for each guest to retreat to, offering delighting gorgeous views of the enchanting Dubrovnik and sparkling Adriatic Sea.

Currency Information
The Kuna (Kn, HRK) is the official currency of Croatia. One Kuna equals 100 Lipa.

Save all receipts from any currency exchange transaction. You may be asked to produce them when you exit the country, and they are required if you intend to reconvert local currency.

Tipping in Croatia
The Croatians are fairly relaxed about tipping etiquette. However service is not usually included in restaurants and it is common practice to leave the spare change, or up to 10% of the total in a smarter restaurant. Tipping taxi drivers in Croatia is not expected, but if it was a pleasant ride then rounding up the amount would certainly be appreciated.

Tipping In Restaurants: If service was good a 10% tip is appropriate. Beware there may be a cover charge for bread and water. In bars, simply round up the total amount.

Arrival & Departure Formalities
Travel documents are your responsibility. In general you should have: • A signed, valid passport that will remain valid for at least 6 months beyond the completion of your trip. Your passport must have enough blank pages (excluding amendment pages) available for entry and exit stamps issued when entering and exiting immigration points.
