About Mlini

  • Plane Tree and Mill Stone

Anyone who has been to Mlini will tell you it has something very special. Mlini is a tiny, peaceful village located halfway between Dubrovnik and Cavtat and is as popular with locals as it is with tourists. Although only 10 km from Dubrovnik, Mlini is far enough to provide the kind of intimate isolation that is needed after being a crowded city. Mlini is well connected with Dubrovnik and Cavtat with a regular boat and bus service and there are various excursions to nearby tourist attractions.

Mlini is so popular that many guest houses claim to be in Mlini when in some cases they are not even close. Mlini is divided into three sections.

Upper Mlini

This is the area above the main road and is up a steep hill and a lot of steps.  If you are interested in accommodation in Mlini, it is advisable to look on Google Maps to see exactly where it is situated. Bear in mind the further from the sea it is, the higher up the hill it will be.

Lower Mlini (Where Villa Fede is located)

This is the area below the main road and most guest houses are close to the sea and village centre. Due to its popularity, all accommodation is fully booked during the high season so it is necessary to book well in advance. Even in low season, it is advisable to book early.

In order to access Lower Mlini by car a pass needed. Passes are only issued to residents or guests who have a reserved parking space. If have a car and are not staying in lower Mlini you will not be able to park in or anywhere near it.
