Apartments and Villas on Korcula Island, Croatia
Owner was brilliant. We arrived later than planned but he phoned us to check on our progress and he was there at 23.00 on the Saturday night to welcome us. He knew just when to be visible and when to be diplomatically absent. He didn't pester and was concerned that we had a good time. He made us feel instantly comfortable.
With the exception of one 'snooty' restaurant in Korcula Town, absolutely EVERYWHERE we went everyone was lovely to us. The bars and cafes are very small and cater for small groups and it feels very personal. We went kayaking and mountain biking from the same place and they could not have been more helpful. Hiring anything is so cheap and they TRUST you with their equipment.
Impressed with: Cheapness. Utterly astonishing. Cleanliness of property/area. The clearness of the sea - wow!
Not impressed with: Dubrovnik. Yuk!
Favourite villa moment: The picture I took at 6 am as the sun was rising over the hill =AWESOME Also, discovering the local beach, just a few minutes away = WOW

We found the location to be especially good for kids since there were sandy beaches nearby, which are quite rare in Croatia. Furthermore, the accommodation itself was also well set up for kids. Beautiful landscapes and awesome beaches.

Amazing views over the sea, close to restaurants and village / shops but quiet. Owner was very helpful. Lots of good advice on restaurants and activities.
Impressed with: Friendliness and service
Recommend: Maxsmillian garden restaurant in Korcula is excellent. The sword dancing in Korcula.

Villa was lovely - accommodation spacious and very comfortable. The ensuite shower rooms were excellent and we enjoyed the splendid views from the spacious terrace. The location was excellent and the beach and views from the beach at Lumbarda fabulous. The many stairs and split levels wouldn't be suitable for young children and elderly. Shame about the building work going on on the roof of the adjacent property- a simple screen would improve the view from the terrace.
Owner very friendly and helpful but not intrusive. They live right next door but it wasn't a problem at all.
Impressed with: The friendliness of the people
Not impressed with: The rather dull 'Italian' food
Recommend: Both restaurants within the bay were good - unpretentious but good food with lovely sea views.
Favourite villa moment: Breakfast on the terrace

It was all excellent and even better than described. A very pleasant place to stay beautifully situated, and we loved it. Fabulous scenery and coast, very easy to travel in, used public transport to arrive, travel around, and leave.

We loved it! Owners were charming, informative, responsive and could not have been more helpful
Impressed with: The crystal clear seas.
Not impressed with: Sometimes the food was a bit old fashioned
Favourite villa moment: Waking up and going for a long swim to the little island opposite the house.

Nous avons été très satisfaits de notre choix - il faut simplement faire attention avec les horaires de départ de l'avion de Dubrovnik qui nous a obligé de quitté l'îl de Korcula vendredi en fin daprès-midi déjà.... Peut-être un peu plus de détails quant à la localisation de la villa. Surveillant est un hôte remarquable et il a été très coopératif avec nous. C'était une vrai découverte !
Impressed with: La diversité du paysage-
Not impressed with: Peut-être la qualité relative des vins....
Recommend: Le Feral konoba à Lumbarda - Le Konoba-Zaratak à Brna et le Vidak Rest. à Split Par contre légère déception du Natura à Lumbarta... pourtant recommandé dans le Routard.
Favourite villa moment: Toute la semaine...
