If you consider yourself something of an adventurer, you won’t want to miss the opportunity to venture outside of your Korčula villa to follow his tracks through the island.
The fate of the island has been long determined by its status as an important port on the sea route. It was an attractive location to many royal leaders, including the Illyrians, the Greeks, the Romans, the Venetians, the French, the Russians, the Italians, and the Austrians. This has culminated in a gorgeous mix of architectural styles and countless histories, which melt effortlessly into its natural geography.

From medieval buildings to ancient monuments from the years before Christ, the mystical history of the island is woven into every piece of architecture. So, if you choose to leave your luxurious villa for a day out to see the house of Marco Polo or any of the other marvellous landmarks, it will certainly be a memorable and rich experience.
Natural Beauties Beyond Your Korčula Villa
The island of Korčula is one of the most densely forested islands in the Adriatic. However, these forests are certainly not the only natural attraction. When you stay in one of our beautiful holiday villas, you can also visit the beautiful vineyards where the famous Pošip wine is made, which is a trademark of the island.
Whether you choose to visit the deep forests, find the oldest cypress in Europe, or see the medicinal herbs of lavender, immortelle, sage and rosemary growing in the wild, the lush vegetation of the island is scenic and picturesque and guaranteed to revive your senses.

Of course, all this greenery isn’t without the accompanying wildlife. You may encounter seals, eagles, mongooses, wild boar, rabbits, pheasants, wild ducks and even deer in the wild. Many locals also keep donkeys, cows, sheep, and goats. The charming traditional pace of life is certainly another factor to enjoy outside your delightful Korčula villa.
The most highly populated places on the coast of the island are Vila Luka and Lumbarda, while Blato and Žrnovo, along with countless other gorgeous places, are settled in the centre of the island. The coast extends over 182km – and that’s without counting the numerous islands and islets – so there are plenty of beautiful beaches to see and many glorious things to do when you venture outside of your luxury villa in Korčula.
