LOPUD 1483, Croatia
Located on the northern peninsula of Lopud island, off the coast of Dubrovnik, LOPUD 1483 is a restored 15-century Franciscan monastery that has been overlooking the Elaphiti Islands and Croatia’s Dalmatian coast for centuries. After an extensive rennovation, LOPUD 1483 has opened its doors to guests and is available to rent exclusively for private stays and events.
Transformed into a place of shared experience where history, art, and botanical exploration unite the senses, LOPUD 1483’s sophisticated interiors, peaceful gardens and atmospheric ancient fortress offer plenty of space for family and friends to relax and enjoy the undiscovered beauty of the Elaphiti archipelago.
The 13 original cells have been elegantly transformed into five private suites, each with its own bathroom and views over the ocean or out onto the monastery’s lush gardens. The interiors effortlessly fuse handmade Italian furniture with historic renaissance pieces from a private collection. Contrasting with the ancient architecture, walls are adorned with carefully curated contemporary art pieces.
Using the best local and seasonal ingredients, many from the monastery’s own gardens, your private chef will tailor his menus around your tastes, with attentive hosts on hand to anticipate your every need – both at the property and whilst exploring the local area.
LOPUD 1483 is the perfect venue for group retreats, corporate seminars, concerts, ceremonies and celebrations, adding a sense of depth and peace with the azure Adriatic sea as a backdrop.
