A Converted 15-th century Monastery

Island of Lopud
€12,000 / night
5 Bedroom

Exceptional, tranquil, retreat estate for rent! 

Perched on the northern-most tip of Lopud island, opposite of world famouse city of Dubrovnik in Croatia, estate LOPUD 1483 overlooks the small harbour and islands beyond. Sensitively restored from its 15th century incarnations, today LOPUD 1483 is a private, tranquil retreat that seamlessly merges history and heritage. 

The 13 original cells have been elegantly transformed into five private suites, each with its own bathroom and views over the Adriatic sea or out onto monastery's medicinal gardens awash with Mediterranean greenery, herbs and native fauna. At their heart, with sweeping view over the sea, lies a fortress that once protected the security of the island’s inhabitants, providing shelter and a means of defence against the attacks of Ottoman pirates.

From the top of the fortress, experience majestic views over the neighbouring island of Šipan and the national park on Mljet.

Thoughtfully restored using bespoke joinery and historic plastering techniques, the interiors effortlessly fuse handmade furniture by Italian designer Paola Lenti with historic renaissance pieces from the Thyssen-Bornemiza collection.

Contrasting with the ancient architecture, walls are adorned with carefully curated contemporary art pieces from the TBA21 Collection.
