In the neighborhood

La Vita e Bella VI is located in the heart of Dubrovnik Old Town, minutes away from the most interesting historical buildings and sights (Rector’s Palace, Sponza Palace, Dominican Monastery, Onofrio Fountain, St. Vlaho’s church, entrance to Dubrovnik walls etc.). The nearest market is less than a minute walk away. Bars, restaurants, and shops are all around. The Adriatic Sea is less than 200 meters away, and the popular Banje beach is around 500 meters away, easily accessible by walking. The typical Old Town Palace  that facilitates our property is located on the ground level, the same as the famous Stradun street, which is only 20 meters away,  with only one (1) stair-step to reach the Palace in case you’re entering Old Town through the nearest Pile Gate  (recommended). 

Each of the three suites is located on its own floor, with reception at the ground floor.  Inside the UNESCO-protected part of the city, no elevators are allowed in the heritage houses, so you will be required to take the stairs to reach your suite.   

Please, let us know in case you need help with the luggage.

How to get here

To reach our property at Palmotićeva 4, we recommend entering Dubrovnik Old Town through Pile Gate or through Ploće Gate (both without stairs). 

Dubrovnik Old Town is a pedestrian-only zone, so it is easy to stroll around the charming hidden alleys without stress from traffic.

 In case you are arriving by plane and need airport transportation, please let us know, and we will organize it for you (price around 30 Euro one- way); alternatively, you can take a taxi at the airport or hop on the Dubrovnik Shuttle, which will take you to the city center. Like all visitors, you will need to enter Dubrovnik Old Town on foot. There are three gates entering the Old Town: the already mentioned Pile and Ploče gate, and the third one, Buža Gate; if you enter there, there will be stairs to climb (down) to reach the property. 

If you are arriving  with a car, you will not be able to park within the city walls (no traffic allowed inside the walls), but we can offer you private, off-site parking behind the ramp, around a 10-15 min walk away from the Old Town for 22 Euro/night. Please, make a reservation for the parking in advance. In case you need any additional information, please do not hesitate to ask.

Reconstructions - before, in the process and now

With every reconstruction of appartment or house we take care of preserving old original elements of interior and exterior and if possible  we incorporate them into new structures while preserving initial purpose of the element.

The “PILO”

Good example is reconstruction of a stone “pilo”, which was a kind of small  water basin used for household washing. It consisted of wonderful carved stone frame, but it’s beauty was somehow hidden under later made gypsum shelves and covers. This is how it looked when we started reconstruction.

Even when some of the ceilings in the Palace were taken down because of bad shape of wooden structure, which was  later renovated exactly as it was in original,  “The Pilo” remained there, protected for later restauration and cleaning. 

We even had to turn the staircase, so that Pilo could get larger space for our later admiration. Originally the wooden staircase to the second floor was on the left side of the building, thus Pilo was squeezed in a narow hallway, as can be seen from the pictures above. The staircase is now on the back side of the house, which gives space to this beautiful old element.

Pilo has meanwhile being cleaned and all the damaged parts  have been carefully restaurated.

 It was also decided that we will incorporate it with a modern  pipe and wash basin from Gessi collection Goccia (droplet).. 

And this is how it looks today. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.. 

Other elements – the bar.. 

In first floor we found opening in the wall that was probably the connection to other building, but was now closed.  We could simply cover it, but we have decided to turn it into a bar. This is how it looked during reconstruction:

And this is how it looks today as a beautiful bar and part of our functional interior.

Local stone in reception and stairecase

The white-beige stone that we used for staircase and reception is from a local quarry Visočan and it is the same stone that was used for Stradun and in many houses in Dubrovnik, finished in the same rough texture as if it was hand carved.

Also front door and facade had a makeover, but mostly being cleaned and repaired. Here are pictures before and after.
