About the place
Lopud 1483 is one of the unique properties located on the island of Lopud in Croatia. This property stretches over 5,000 square meters and includes a 15th-century monastery, a fortress, and beautiful gardens. Lopud 1483 is a complex of 5 luxury suites and one of the world’s best private art collections. It is best described as something between a museum, a luxury property, and a spiritual haven.
The property is located on Lopud, the second-largest island of the Elaphite islands situated between Kolocep and Sipan, and it’s known for its sandy beaches and quiet pace of life. It’s a car-free island, and visitors who want to explore the island’s natural beauty can follow the island paths through lush vegetation either by foot or bicycle. You can enjoy undisturbed views of islands in the distance from the monastery and you will have direct access to the sea, boat trips, yoga, and spa treatments.
Francesca Thyssen-Bornemisza and her family carefully repaired and restored the estate and ensured that every aspect was designed to preserve the rich history of the monastery. The 13 original Franciscan cells have been converted into 5 unique luxury suites. The monastery can accommodate 10 people, and it is ideal for 5 couples or families traveling together, looking for the perfect quiet and luxurious place on the island. They are equipped with a unique combination of Renaissance furniture from the Thyssen-Bornemisza collection, as well as new pieces by Italian designer Paola Lenti.
A Living Art Gallery
Behind the cloister walls of Lopud 1483, guests will be able to live like great art collectors. The Thyssen-Bornemisza family has collected over four generations, an impressive collection that spans between the thirteenth to twenty-first centuries and was the largest collection after the Queen of England.
The selection of works in the Monastery includes original renaissance and gothic furniture and decorative arts and paintings, most of which adorned the Baron’s home in the Villa Favorita in Lugano and are being presented for the first time in decades. The whole experience is designed to offer guests the opportunity to “live like a collector” in a style reminiscent of the taste and culture that has spread over generations of this extraordinary family of philanthropists.
