About Villa Sheherezade

If you’re looking for a very special villa on the Adriatic Coast, Villa Sheherezade will oblige. Home to Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor whilst shooting a movie in Dubrovnik, this majestic villa delivers on every front. Its grandiose interior is matched by a regal exterior. Crowned by a dazzling turquoise dome, its white stone walls are surrounded by an extensive garden. Stroll through the shade of its palm and cypress trees to emerge into the warmth of the sunlight reflecting off the ocean.

Villa Sheherezade's maze of outdoor terraces enjoy a backdrop of azure waters and the nearby island of Lokrum. The charms of Old Town Dubrovnik are a short walk away. Yet, there’s plenty of privacy here. The outdoor pool, with a platform whirlpool, is encircled by stone walls, so you have space you can truly call your own.

Five fully refurbished bedrooms abound with romance. High ceilings, charming artworks, plush fabrics and elaborate embellishments are all part of the distinctive character. To make your time here even more indulgent, there is a daily breakfast service and a butler at your disposal.

A renovated wood-panelled hallway leads to the elegant drawing room with sweeping panoramic views of the Adriatic. The Grand Salon’s restored antique furniture offers a touch of class, whether you’re dining with a loved one or with friends.

With ocean views, deluxe service and grand but comfortable rooms, the Villa Sheherezade offers you something that’s rather more than a little special.
