Olive trees of Lun

This year I did not want to post any photos of my olive trees or anything “regular” happening up and down the coast in the season of olive picking. This year the destination was Lun… To anyone, even vaguely familiar with olive-growing traditions on the Croatian coast, even the very name of village of Lun…

Villa Dubrovnik, Dubrovnik – Romance forever

As the season ended, we are already getting ready for 2011 with site inspections, guide selection and some (slight) expansion of services. One of the nicest part of that process is definitely staying at nice hotels that we recommend to our clients. Each hotel is personally inspected at least once a year and we sleep…
