About the Owner

I am Janet, a friendly English woman from Manchester who came to Croatia on holiday in the 1970s where I met and married a Dubrovnik man and have lived here ever since.

I am fluent in the Croatian language and enjoy the local customs.

I enjoy meeting new people and if you feel like a chat I'm always happy to share my local knowledge with you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a lovely apartment! We had a super holiday and Janet and Miro couldn't have been more helpful - we'll certainly be back - soon! - Mr and Mrs Pouchly -May 2012.

Very friendly and helpful owners - provided everything we needed. Being picked up and dropped off at the airport saved a lot of hassle. The villa was well located - far enough from the centre of Cavtat to be quiet, but close enough for a short stroll. Our flat was well equiped and ideal for what we needed. The swimming pool was very well maintained (as was the rest of the property). Janet booked excursions for us - we were picked up outside the villa - we went to Montenegro and Korcula, and also went to Dubrovnik, once by boat and once by bus.

Overall we had a brilliant time and would like to thank Janet and Miro for a wonderful holiday.

Another fantastic holiday staying at Villa Fontana

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay in Villa Fontana Cavtat. We have always been very pleased with our accommodation. All the apartments have been refurbished since we were there last. We always stay in number one as there are only two of us but I have actually been into a lot of the other apartments and all are fantastic. Janet (the owner) is fab. Lovely, friendly and helpful. The apartments and pool area are very clean and well maintained. Mark (Janet's son) and Delilah (house keeper) alongside Janet work well to achieve this. Towels are changed regularly and bins emptied

The apartments are a very pleasant walk away from Cavtat town, with lots of lovely bars and restaurants on the way for refreshments. We love Kalebro.

I would recommend these apartments to anyone. If you go make sure you take Janet some PG Tips!

Villa Fontana, Cavtat

Very nice apartment, everything you're likely to need. Good location. Janet (the owner) extremely helpful. Pickup/drop off included, mini tour of the town en route. Janet also helped us organise a quick tour of Dubrovnik. Will definitely be visiting again. Cavtat is a lovely place, restaurants extremely good value. Recommended

Pick up and tour by Milo brilliant and Janet very welcoming. Apartment matched our requirements for roomy well equiped accomodation. Recommend apartment location for tranquility and nice stroll to restaurants. Resort offers good range of well priced restaurants , food excellent and staff friendly. Janet offered advice and assistance with any requests with prompt and helpful attitude.

Hired car from her recommended company and used for day trips to Mostar in Bosnia, Kotor Bay in Montenegro , took water taxi to dubrovnik on number of occasions and three island boat trip. Country beautiful scenery and well worth a visit.

Pool at villa gave welcome opportunity for swim with plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas for shade.

Honesty bar at pool saved trip to supermarket for drinks

From the Owner

This property started life as a small one bedroom family bungalow that little by little was extended and improved each year until we achieved our ambition to make it one of the most beautiful properties in Cavat. Villa Fontana now has 6 six modern holiday Apartments, 3 comfortable en-suite Double Rooms and a beautiful, secluded pool set in Mediterranean gardens, surrounded by tangerine trees and grapevines. So private, set in the valley away from the crowds, but only a few minutes walk to the beach, restaurants and bars.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Dubrovnik at 3 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : At the beach at 300 Metres Nearest Ferry : Dubrovnik at 17 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : On the sea front at 300 Metres Nearest Beach : Less than a five minutes walk at 300 Metres Car: not necessary


The beach is just a 3 min walk from the Villa, where you can bathe in the clear blue waters of The Adriatic or, if you prefer to sunbathe on the rocks there are many secluded spots along the waterside, where you will also find shade under the pine trees. Water sports / Diving center is close by, and it is only a few minutes from the start of the famous hiking trail named after Ronald Brown.


Although Dubrovnik airport is only 4km away, Villa Fontana is not on the flight path. Airport transfers are complimentary for a stay of three or more nights. Car hire can be arranged, have a chat with Janet about this. Please remember to bring your driving licence with you!


Villa Fontana is in the pretty village of Cavtat only 17km South of the famous old walled city of Dubrovnik, which is easy to get to by boat or bus.

To the south, the Montenegro border is only 30km away and makes an interesting day out. Mostar (famous for the iconic bridge) in Bosnia, is fascinating for a full day out. If you fancy just a shortish run out (about 20km), then the botanical gardens at Trsteno are splendid. Guided excursions are available.

Further Details:

Protect yourself please check your travel insurance carefully. ATOL rules don’t apply for flight only bookings. Did you know that if airlines fail for any reason, then flights paid for using a debit card would not be refunded? (If you book your flight using a credit card then there is some protection if you have spent over £100, but you must claim within 60 days). There is a little known scheduled airline failure insurance policy that you can buy (included as standard in travel insurance bought from the post office) that will guarantee a refund of the cost of your flight if the airline close, provided you have bought your ticket more than 2 weeks in advance of the airline going out of business! Please make sure your insurance includes this element.

From the Owner

Cavtat is situated at the base of the Dinaric Alps - and Villa Fontana has the advantage of being one of the few properties built completely on the flat, so there are no steep hills to climb for you to fully explore and enjoy the pretty village.
