Experience to remember (Dubrovnik's south)
Southern most part of Croatia hides a magnificent country side, called Konavle. This area which is positioned 30-50 kilometers south of Dubrovnik is an interesting mix of pure nature and historical and cultural heritage of great value.
Here is possible to see traces of different civilizations since prehistoric times through the roman times, the Middle Ages, the times of Dubrovnik republic up to present day.
Aside from giving us the unique possibility to explore all that history, this beautiful area enchants with its small picturesque villages, protected natural landscape of the river Ljuta with its preserved watermills, Konavle field agriculture area and steep Konavle rocks that rise above the crystal clear sea. The medieval small town of Cavtat also belongs to this region and offers an ideal point to start the Konavle exploration.
Therefore, if you wish to explore some of these or even a traditional meals in some of the local restaurants along the river Ljuta, please feel free to contact me. . .

Darko is a fantastic guide. He is very knowledgeable and caring. He took us places we never would have found on our own. It is special to have someone who has grown up in the area and who loves the area show you his home.
