The British edition of the Huffington Post has recommended Dubrovnik as a destination once again with a rave review of the city and Villa Orsula.
Rupert Parker writes, ”This is my third visit to Dubrovnik and I’m still carried away by its situation, the ancient walled town jutting into the Adriatic, the streets bustling with tourists.” He goes on to enthuse about his accomodation writing, ”It’s my first time at the Villa Orsula and I can’t quite believe the view from my balcony, the island of Lokrum to my left, the red tiled roofs of the old town to the right and a constant procession of sailing boats and kayaks plying the water below. There are pine and lavender fragrances from the lush gardens, leading to the sea, and I can see grapes on the vines fringing the terrace.”
Parker made the most of his short stay in Dubrovnik, ”I enjoy 3 days in Dubrovnik and take the cable car to get an overview of the town, before walking the ramparts. They proved remarkably resistant to modern weapons when, at the end of 1991, the city was shelled by Yugoslav federal forces. You can see news footage from these times at the Homeland War Museum in the Imperial Fort of Srdj which itself came under attack…I also take a 15 minute trip to the protected island of Lokrum and spend the afternoon exploring its pine forests, botanical garden and small salt lake, known as the Dead Sea.”
