I don't usually write reviews, because I prefer to keep places like this as a secret. But we had such a memorable vacation that I feel compelled to share my thoughts. Firstly, this holiday would not have been the same without the recommendations, guidance, and advice of our hosts Paulina and Antonio. Both are English speaking, and they recommended to us where to eat and where to go whenever we asked for their advice. Their tips were totally accurate and we were never disappointed. We ate in authentic Croatian restaurants away from the highly priced tourist locations and the value was awesome. Just mention the names of our hosts and we would be given an excellent service. Not only did we eat well, but we made use of the boats that belong to our hosts to explore the local islands, where we would snorkel, swim, and yes....we would find other excellent restaurants (some located on tiny barren islands). We also cycled using the bikes belonging to our hosts, to beautiful bays around the coastline where we would find yet another fantastic restaurant. The fish here is superb. Freshly caught, succulent, tasty and like nowhere else.
You don't need a car here. You could spend an entire vacation chilling on Korcula. There are of course trips to other islands a few hours away, or to towns up and down the coast (e.g. Dubrovnik), if you were willing to put up with winding roads across the mountains, or longish boat rides. But we never felt the need. Korcula had everything we needed for a 10 day stay and our hosts were fab.
The accommodation was simple and clean, perfectly sized, and place to rest our heads at night, including air-con which we found necessary during the nights. Also, we had our own private area to sun bathe, and the sea ( which is an inlet ) was right outside. Perfect for keeping cool when we needed to.
I could write more but I am sure by now you are getting the message. We were two families of 4 (8 in total) and we had a memorable holiday and one day we will return!
