Private excursion: half day or full day excursion.
Konavle valley, Dubrovnik’s country side.
The Konavle valley is a fascinating region in the hinterland of Dubrovnik. Konavle, known for its traditional way of living, production of pure olive oil, vineyards with local grape varieties, green natural honey, sweet smelling herbs and local embroidery. Konavle is an ethnographic and natural jewel of Croatia. The main village of the Konavle valley, named Čilipi, is one of the most important places in this area, well known for the folk-dance performance and small local market on Sunday morning. The Sunday morning performance shows beautiful local costumes and richness in culture and tradition. Even during weekdays, a visit to Čilipi is worthwhile, admire the quiet atmosphere, visit the local Konavle County museum and have a look in the St Nicolas church.
Old watermills of village Ljuta
The village of Ljuta, named after the river Ljuta, is an interesting and green area to visit. A complex of historical, restored, water mills is open for public. An optional visit and demonstration of the water mill complex of Ljuta could be organised.
We suggest an optional drink or lunch near the river Ljuta, the location of the most attractive restaurant in the Konavle valley – Restaurant Konavoski Dvori. Enjoy a delicious typical meal in an unforgettable setting next to the cascading river Ljuta.
A visit to Cavtat should not miss during this excursion. Cavtat, the most southern town of Croatia, a mix of old and new architecture, Cavtat was originally a Greek settlement called Epidaurus.
