Karmen's House details
If you want to live and breathe Dubrovnik, then this charming old Venetian townhouse is a really special place to stay. Tucked away in the Old Town on a narrow, stone-flagged street where locals sit on the steps exchanging news, it’s near the Music School. In fact, you can often the students playing.
This little stone-built house has been in the Karmen family for over 100 years and is filled with interesting artefacts which give it a real home-from-home feel. In traditional Dubrovnik style, it extends upwards rather than horizontally, with the cosy living and dining area, the galley kitchen and the small shower room on the ground floor. Upstairs, there are two bedrooms, each on its own floor. The bedroom at the top is the larger, while the comfy double below is more compact.
Of course, one of the pleasures of staying here is being able to explore the city early in the morning and after the crowds have left which more than makes up for the lack of outside space. And as the area is car-free, a member of the family will meet you at the town walls on your arrival to guide you to the house.
