Villa Ella



Only 20 minutes away from the City of Dubrovnik you may find yourself in this Croatian island hideaway. How does this sound to you? This may not be for everyone but if you are seeking absolute silence, nature, light, a blue sky, greenery, and love being surrounded by the sea, you may not resist to this nature retreat proposal. Here you can reconnect with your loved ones or stay as active as you wish. But not miss the boat experience when to design your trip.


Villa Ella is a secluded island country house with views that stretch for miles.
Tucked away in the intimacy of nature, this cosy fully renovated pool residence is situated on the island paradise of Šipan, just 30 minutes away from Dubrovnik. Thanks to its natural beauties, Šipan was the favourite island of Dubrovnik’s aristocracy and it is still today an oasis of green and sanctuary of tranquillity.

Set in almost two acres of olive groves and gardens, family-owned Villa Ella offers all you need to fully relax and unwind: a harmonious home, the perfect climate, unforgettable panoramic views over the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic Sea, help on hand when you need it, a host that cares…


Restored to bring out the simple, natural beauty of this home, beamed ceilings, white walls and vibrant natural fabrics enhance its rustic character. The whole interior decoration is inspired by the vivid colours of fruit that grow all over the island. By using the backdrop as its influence the villa has kept its original charm.


Our guests never feel left to their own devices. Our small and passionate team takes care of their wishes long before they arrive. We organise their transfers and pre-stocking, propose adventure trips and island hopping, plan massage or yoga sessions. A warm welcome makes them feel at home right from the start. And our devoted staff stays at their disposal for breakfast and housekeeping, in-stay deliveries and wine suggestions. They help them discover secret beaches and outdoor sports on the island, encourage them to get to know the region, its traditions, its gastronomy.


This recently renovated authentic Dalmatian house has five bedrooms, three en suite and two that share two bathrooms on the same floor, sleeping a total of ten guests.
Large terraces and the infinity pool area with summer kitchen invite guests to slow down and enjoy al fresco dining. For sports enthusiasts, there is a tennis table and a bocce field.
