Description

Poised in the picturesque bay of Zaton, just 10 minutes driving from the Pearl of the Adriatic – Dubrovnik, Villa Horizon is an exceptional private estate with 6 spacious bedrooms, voluminous living spaces and expansive Mediterranean gardens with an outdoor pool and a private chapel. An ideal choice for families and groups of friends, the Villa can host up to 14 guests.
Built back in the 15th century, the Villa was originally envisioned as a summer retreat for aristocrats, a getaway from the heated stone of Dubrovnik’s Old Town and a place to relax, enjoy and entertain friends and family. Vividly illustrating our ancestor’s sophistication in leisure, its striking waterfront location, impressive but unpretentious interiors, tranquil garden ambiance and complete privacy of the enclosed property make it a representative sample of Dubrovnik Renaissance architecture and protected Croatian National Heritage.
The main entrance to Villa Horizon sits at the deep end of Zaton bay, along the waterfront promenade. Stepping into the southern courtyard, its massive stone walls immediately resonate an exclusive experience and true privacy, an atmosphere quite different from newly built villas. Furnished with outdoor sofas, the courtyard is focused around the staircase leading onto a very modern structure, the glass bridge, running over the courtyard in full length and connecting two outdoor terraces on the first floor level. From both the terraces and the bridge, the views of Zaton bay, its marina and crystal clear Adriatic are bound to leave you in awe.
From the courtyard, enter the main house, comprising 500 m2 of space spread over two floor levels. Typical local materials such as Croatian stone, tufa and top quality wood, but also glass, dominate in the interior. Its clean and modern design lines successfully bring together contemporary minimalism, homey warmth and original historic details, some dating back to the earliest times, over 500 years ago. Airy and spacious, the interior of Villa Horizon holds many unique corners, making everyone feel very much at home here.
The entrance foyer is the central space of the ground floor and doubles as a welcome area and a lounge. To the right of the foyer, two double rooms with bathrooms each feature unique elements, such as an exit directly to the gardens or the bench placed within an arched niche which was originally an entrance for boats. This area also holds a laundry room with washing machine and dryer. Turning left from the foyer, pass the fully-equipped professional kitchen, a large, open-concept area of tufa ceilings and stone floors and walls features a modernly equipped bar area, a cozy living room space with a fireplace and an impressive dining area, dominated by the massive, one-piece table made of wood and stone, suitable for 16 people.
To get up to the first floor level, take the historic staircase from the entrance foyer. As you admire the perfectly polished surface of stone underneath your footsteps, move to enter the library, the central common area of the upper floor. Formerly a salon, the library is an airy space full of light, with high ceilings, large windows and double doors leading onto one of the two terraces on the first floor level. The terraces overlook the bay of Zaton, its piers and docks, yachts and boats, and are the perfect spot for a sunset glass of wine over idyllic panoramas. The first floor comprises 4 luxury suites, each on two floor levels and organized around the same concept: a comfortable lounge and a modern bathroom with walk-in shower and floor heating on the lower level, and a wooden staircase leading up to the gallery with a king size double bed. Satellite TV, safe, and toiletries in each bathroom are standard for each suite.
The true gem of Villa Horizon lies behind the main house. Completely secluded by high stone walls, its terraced Mediterranean gardens extend at over 1500 m2 and are just incredibly fragrant, quiet and private. Enjoy the scents of typical local sorts like citruses, olives and lavender, as well as picking fresh spices for your meals from the herb garden. Coupled with the outdoor pool, an inviting, shaded lounge area and outdoor grill, the gardens are certainly the place to spend most of your time at. A dot on the ‘i’ in idyllic, at the back of the gardens, enjoy a moment of serenity in the chapel of St. Jerome, an integral part of the property.
Typically radiating calmness, the atmosphere at the Villa can be adapted to suit any of your moods or occasions by a simple touch of its main tablet. A completely smart villa, everything from lighting, music to temperature can be regulated this way and a number of preset programs make it easy to experiment and select your perfect setting. Specially designed indoor and outdoor lightning plus SONOS and BOSE sound systems throughout the property create a special atmosphere during the day and turn the villa into a fairy-tale estate at night.

Location

This astonishing estate is located in Zaton Veliki, just 10 km from the most famous Croatian town Dubrovnik. Luxury Villa Horizon is probably one of the best ways to experience the real Mediterranean as it once was with all the advantages of the present.
Dubrovnik – one of the most beautiful towns in the world, the city of stone, surrounded with 1,940 m long stone walls. And it is not only about the beauty, which is timeless, or about the impact on the observer’s eye, it is also about a beauty that is breathtaking, a beauty that encourages expression of the soul, needing no words or explanation. The more you discover it the more you will discover yourself. It is a distinctive part of the world’s puzzle, and a world that would be incomplete without it. It is wrapped in enigmatic fairytale magic that remains even when all else is gone. A tour of the world's second most frequented open-air museum will definitely take your breath away. The fantastic views will inspire you to take some photographs, and the sights that you will capture will continue to amaze you over and over again. Visit the museums of Dubrovnik, taste some of the delicious Mediterranean specialties at the taverns and restaurants of the Old City and complete the treat with a cup of coffee on Stradun.
