Contemporary Luxury Villa
Located on a private clifftop with a stunning panorama of Lokrum Island from five charming stone terraces, and with glorious views of Dubrovnik Old Town from the spotlit pool area, historic Villa Agave epitomises the very best of exclusive seaside villa retreats.
Surrounded by glorious gardens leading to a secluded beach and the turquoise waters of the Adriatic, historic Villa Agave rests on the remains of the 16th-century chapel of St. Lazarus (two of the original walls now forming part of the meditation room), within walking distance of Dubrovnik’s medieval fortress walls.
Originally the exclusive summer house of the 19th-century English archaeologist, Sir Arthur Evans – most famous for unearthing Knossos Palace on the Greek island of Crete – Villa Agave is named after a Mexican plant introduced to Dubrovnik by sailors in the 16th century. The succulent’s spiked leaves greet you along the cobbled pathway leading to the front door.
It remains a haven for celebrities to this day. Legendary film director Francis Ford Coppola chose Villa Agave as his Dubrovnik ‘home away from home’; a place to rest and write in peace.
He also stayed at and praises the nearby Hotel Excelsior Dubrovnik – a landmark retreat built in 1913 and still favoured by the famous – and where all Villa Agave guests are welcome to use the full suite of five-star facilities and services, including the Palm Terrace for decadent drinks at sunset, and perfect pampering in the spa.
With a 24-hour butler on hand throughout your stay, and a secluded cliff-side beach where you can lie while having a blissful massage, you will enjoy the flawless service for which Villa Agave is known and adored. In fact, virtually anything you wish for, we can provide.
