Special people, special times, special place!

Fourteen Canadians from Nova Scotia, with most of us alumni of St. Patrik’s High School in Halifax, and 7 of us celebrating our 50th anniversary of high school graduation, spent a wonderful week together in Dubrovnik.
This villa housing all of us together was ideal for being together and enjoying one another’s company.
Putting many steps on feet, counted by many different devices, brought us to view the amazing sights of this wonderful place.

Thank you to Mrs Anka for helping to care for us during our time here.

Beautiful spot and an amazing experience.

Perfectly Peaceful Property

We had the most memorable family holiday at Villa Ella!
The villa is set over 3 floors and was absolutely perfect for our family of 10. We weren’t on top of each other as it is so spacious.
The pool is idyllic with views out to sea.
Our hosts couldn’t have done more to make our stay more perfect. From transfers to trips, restaurant recommendations, history of the island and cleanliness of the villa. Nothing was too much trouble.
Everyone had the best time, memories were made that we will never forget.
We will definitely make a return to this most perfectly peaceful property.

A great stay at Villa Orti from check-in to check-out.

Many thanks to Anka and the Villas Support Staff for making the stay a memorable one.

Being such a small group, we ate out, but from our previous stay 2 years ago, the breakfasts served by Anka and evening meals cooked by the pro chef were excellent!

Maybe a bigger group next time!
Best wishes to all and many thanks.

Thank you for the most wonderful stay at Villa Orti.

The Villa is huge and worked perfectly for group dining out, but also offering us personal space. Everything about this place was perfect – of course made even more wonderful by Mrs Anka, Lidia,  and all the team at the villa group. You surpassed all our expectations and were so kind and helpful to us.

Nothing was too much trouble, we have made wonderful memories here and have totally fallen in love with Dubrovnik. In fact it is now my favourite city.
Thank you all so much for our incredible holiday.

Superb 2 weeks, great hosts, incredible accommodation. Having taken 10 of our family the villa more than catered for every member of the family of all ages. Ann and Peter gave us a great experience in our first time in Croatia and we are planning our return already. I would highly recommend Villa Ella.

We were a group of 10 adults and 9 kids from 8-17.
We came from all over the world to gather with friends & family, we had the most wonderful time!
We really appreciated the care, kindness and hard work of Mrs Anka, we had everything we needed.
For our group the layout of the villa worked perfectly. The teenagers had their own area. The kids loved the pool and the turtles.
The help in arranging excursions and our private chef dinner was amazing.
Our kids said that this was the best trip in their lives.

We have just returned from an amazing stay at Villa Orti. We were a group of 13 adults visiting from Scotland for a girls trip and the Villa was perfect for us. It was very spacious inside and out and was exceptionally clean and tidy. The location is brilliant as it is only a 5/10 minute walk to the centre of the old town. Special thanks to Anka for looking after us and for her homemade liqueur on arrival!

Breathtaking ! We have just returned from a glorious week at Villa Ella. We are a family of 11 plus two babies. Anne Myriam was wonderful. She welcomed us when we arrived on the ferry and took us to the most beautiful villa with a breathtaking view. The quality of everything in the villa was above all our expectations. Everything about the villa was so thoughtful and personal. Anne Myriam was always available to help us. We loved the pool and the ping pong competitions. We hardly had to leave the villa because there is an outdoor kitchen where we barbecued. The quiet, family friendly beach is not far from the villa. But I do recommend hiring a car. Everything about the villa and the island is beautiful, calm and peaceful. We can’t wait to return.

We have just had the most wonderful time at Villa Ella on the island of Sipan.
We were  6 of us, who luckily enjoy working together and our stay was really a joy.
Ann Myriam took endless trouble to help our time on Sipan. Nothing was too much, and she can make anything happen from a boat to take you anywhere, to organising an amazing barbecue, or helping you learn the history of the area, of which she is a true expert.
The views from the Villa are quite simply as beautiful as you could ever dream of.
It is spotlessly clean and has an excellent kitchen and sitting room, as well as 2 beautiful outside seating areas, to choose from depending on the sun position!
The pool is set in a wonderful position and the air conditioning inside Villa Ella a joy in the heat of July.
The setting was so stunning that it had us all purring from our first glimpse right through to the moment of leaving.
I cannot recommend Villa Ella or Ann Myriam more highly.

We have had a wonderful time at Villa Ella – Myriam and the team were so helpful. They transported us from the bay to the villa and did a lovely barbecue one evening. The infinity pool is divine. The villa is lovely and well equipped. They will do a shop for you so good to order before you arrive as this is so helpful.

We look forward to coming back!

We loved our stay at Villa Orti! We had a group of 11, and the bedrooms, common areas, kitchen(s), and outdoor spaces were all perfect for our group. We also really appreciated the close proximity, as it was only a 7-8 minute walk down the hill to the Pile Gate into the old town. Everything was well done, and the team that greeted us upon arrival and took care of us during the stay were terrific.

This is a charming place, full of beauty and serenity. The old village stone house has been superbly renovated, with much care brought to the smallest details. Every domestic eish is fulfilled. Being on a small island in the middle of a fantastic „decor“  practically alone doesn’t mean that you are in complete isolation.
Thanks to the endless dedication of Ann Myriam and Petar, all our wishes are fulfilled: transfer by boat to the mainland, renting a car, availability of excellent fresh fish for dinner.
We want to express our gratitude and admiration for the attainability and organisational skills of our hosts.

It was an amazing experience!

We had the most amazing holiday in this beautiful house on the Island of Sipan. Ann Myriam, her family and colleagues could not have been more helpful
The house was incredible, spotless and well laid out. The vine covered terrace was beautiful and the large pool kept the kids (and adults) happy for hours!
Sipan itself is a picturesque island full of history, with clear water and a handful of excellent restaurants serving great seafood – and all very kid friendly. To top it off Dubrovnik is only 30 mins away by boat.
We can’t wait to go back.

We spent 14 blissful days at Villa Ella and did not want to leave. Such a gorgeous gem to find on the idyllic island of Sipan.
Hard to believe from landing in Dubrovnik, you are only 1 hour away from this hidden paradise. Everything we wanted was easily provided, and nothing too much trouble.
We are already dreaming of our return visit!

This villa is a dream place to stay in a dream destination! I holidayed here with my family and friends and we tried to take as much advantage of all of the facilities as possible, from the pool to the sauna, and the ‘cave’ to the amazing BBQ. You’ll get fit walking the stairs but the views of the city, it’s location, the privacy and separate bathrooms of each room will make it more than worth the while!
