Lopud 1483 is located on the northern tip of Lopud, Dubrovnik, in a Franciscan monastery that has been overlooking the island for centuries. The property has been lovingly restored over the past twenty years by Creative Director Francesca Thyssen-Bornemisza and her family.
Every aspect has been carefully designed in order to preserve the history of the building. Lopud 1483 is available on an exclusive use basis from May to October. The original cells of the monastery have been transformed into five stunning suites, with wooden ceilings, windows and floors and views onto the sea or garden. Each suite features a unique combination of renaissance furniture, from the Thyssen-Bornemisza collection as well as bespoke new pieces by Italian designer Paola Lenti and contemporary art from the TBA21 collection. Romantic meals can be enjoyed outside or in the Old Kitchen – an authentic space with an open fire and bread oven, used to make delicious fresh pizzas today, while guests can indulge with cocktails and canapes on the Sunset Terrace, located on the top of the fortress, offering exceptional views of Lopud and The Elaphiti Islands. Guests can enjoy locally inspired spa treatments, Alchemy Bars, in-house meditation experts and visiting practitioners can be arranged upon request. This undiscovered island sanctuary has been designed as a place where history, art and botanical exploration ignite the senses. The property is also home to a Sacred Garden, complete with nine stations designed for meditation and contemplation, a traditional Franciscan Pharmacy.
We also have numerous other villas and private houses throughout the country and can source the right property for you after a thorough understanding of your brief and budget.
