In May of 2010, my company Lightroom kicked off a huge marketing initiative with Colliers Residential and Jupiter Adria for the Residences at Dubrovnik Sun Gardens. These fully completed, finely appointed luxury residences all feature sweeping views of the Adriatic Sea.

The Old city of Dubrovnik is spell-binding. The stone streets wind around Cathedrals and ancient monasteries and open on to large squares lined with coffee shops and art galleries. There are many ways to loose yourself – spend a day perched on a rocky outcropping sipping Pivo as the sun shimmers on the blue waters of the Adriatic, stroll through the many museums and art galleries, enjoy live Jazz on an outdoor terrace, or hole up in a Pub and chat with locals and travellers.
Up the coast, Ston is the Gateway to the Peljesac Peninsula, the Heart of Croatia’s booming wine industry.

Lunch by the sea in Mali-Ston is a must, especially if you like Seafood. The Restaurants rely on local fisherman and the daily menu is dominated by the fresh offerings that have been brought from the sea that morning.
