Villa Bon Vivant, Mlini – Dubrovnik

Villa Bon VivantWhen visiting Dubrovnik, we stayed at Villa Bon Vivant, on the coast at Mlini – about a 15-minute drive from Dubrovnik.

We were on a self-drive trip and had been advised that parking was difficult to come by at Dubrovnik and it was a good idea not to stay in the city itself.

We booked Villa Bon Vivant as it was a short ferry ride into Dubrovnik.

Arriving in Mlini, it was difficult to find our accommodation – it was down a steep driveway that was a bit daunting at first but we soon got used to it.

Hotel Liburna, Korcula, Croatia

Hotel_Liburna_1000We felt very fortunate to be staying at Hotel Liburna – it was one of the most modern hotels on Korcula, in a great location, a short walk to the Old Town and with lovely views.

On arrival by car, we followed signs to Hotel Liburna and arrived at the back of the hotel where there was a carpark.

The hotel looked new, and checking in at Reception, we were told it had only opened to guests about 10 days prior, after being totally renovated.
