Where to start? The Old Town or ‘Grad’ is a medieval walled, city dating back to the time Brits were just coming out of the woods! Dubrovnik used to be a city state, like the Vatican and the locals were exchanging International Trade Treaties when Robin Hood was causing trouble in Sherwood. Enter through medieval gates, walk on marble streets and be struck by the similarity to Venice. No surprise, as the Venetians once occupied the city. Walk the walls and bask in the sun’s shimmering reflection off the magical Adriatic or jump on the chair lift and get another stunning view of the Old Town and the Elaphite Islands, just offshore.

What an absolutely perfect setting for filming of the next episode of the HBO mega hit TV series, Game of Thrones and through our twitter account we have put Villa Mirak at the disposal of cast members when they return to Dubrovnik for the next series. The Old City of Dubrovnik had a real medieval feel to it with as a large numbers of extras in full costume. The set was also extensive with blacksmiths, torches, market stalls and various weapons. On the ramparts of the city walls two flags, one from the kingdom of Westeros and the other from the house of the noble family Baratheon, fluttered in the breeze.
Dubrovnik Villa sits alongside Rijeka Dubrovacka, one of the most stunning sights visitors get from the air, just before landing in Dubrovnik. This is where the summer houses were constructed because of the cooling breezes.
Dubrovnik Villa is so close to the ACI Marina, with all its great facilities - swimming pool, restaurants and supermarket, plus also some efficient marina services, including boat launching. It is just possible to make out the yacht masts at ACI in the picture.
