HOW TO GET THERE

Villa Katy is only 9.5 km away from Vela Luka, or about 40 km from Korcula town. The most convenient airports are those in Dubrovnik and Split. In order to make the most of your trip, we recommend hiring a car - all the main car hire companies have desks at Dubrovnik and Split airports.

SEAPLANE CONNECTION

The fastest option is to fly to Split airport and then take a seaplane from Split Downtown to Vela Luka (16 minutes trip). For more information please see: http://www.ec-air.eu/en/timetable#type_split. Once you arrive to Vela Luka, villa Katy is 9.5 Km way.

FERRY CONNECTION

There are also regular ferry services between Split and Vela Luka or from Dubrovnik to Korcula town.

a) Flying to Split: a car ferry from Split to Vela Luka goes twice a day, it takes about 2.5 hours to get to Vela Luka (Korcula).

b) Flying to Dubrovnik: if you choose to fly to beautiful, medieval Dubrovnik you can drive to Orebic town (on the Peljesac peninsula), where the local ferry to Korcula goes every 30 minutes. It takes only 15 minutes to cross from Orebic to Domince port (Korcula).

The Split option is easier, but Dubrovnik is a more scenic trip. Once you arrive to Vela Luka, Villa Katy is only a short 15 minute drive from the town centre. For more info see http://www.villakaty.com/#!getting-there

ISLAND OF KORCULA - DETAILS

The island of Korcula has many little inlets with pebbled beaches that provide you with a warm and tranquil atmosphere. Korcula is one of the most wooded islands on the Adriatic. It is a typical Mediterranean area with various sorts of flora: cypress, pine, olive, oak, and myrtle. Indigenous herbs and aromatic plants also grow on the island: sage, rosemary, lavender, mint, marjoram etc. The old Roman version of the name Korcula was Corcyra Nigra, the ancient Greek version was Corcyra Melaina, both names refer to the dense pine-woods of the island. One French aphorism says that 'A day without wine is like a day without sunshine'. Sun and wine have always been connected in the history of Korcula. Due to the Mediterranean sunshine, Korcula and Peljesac wines have a specific quality and aroma. The ancient Greeks who founded their colony Corcyra Melaina not only established a commercial and cultural center but also planted vines which have since produced wines esteemed all over the world.

OLD KORCULA TOWN - DETAILS

Korcula Old Town is a medieval walled city positioned on a oval-shaped swelling of land pointing deep into Peljesac Channel. The city itself is arranged with a succession of narrow streets branching off the spine of the main street like the bones of a fish. The town of Korcula is well known for Moreska – a traditional sword dance and drama that was common through out the Mediterranean in 12th and 13th century, reaching Korcula in 16th century from Italy and Dubrovnik. The golden period for Korcula was between the 13th and 15th centuries, when the old town's present form was acquired through the construction of important buildings; most of these can still be seen today. It was during this period that the Venetians left its distinctive mark on Korcula’s culture and architecture, which has been well preserved for future generations.

About Tonci and Katy Padovan

Katy & Tonci - villa's management (mother & daughter)

Katy - lives in Croatia, takes care of the villa

Tonci - lives in Australia, manages customer correspondence

Why Tonci and Katy Padovan chose Korcula

The entire estate is surrounded by private gardens filled with the scent of lavender, rosemary, jasmine, oleander and features an architecturally designed swimming pool with in-built spa having majestic sea views.

The private pool (solar heated) and gazebo are not shared with any anybody else, you will have exclusive access giving you complete privacy.

The gardens cascade down to the waters edge along a stone pathway via a series of terraced flower beds, with steps leading you down to the sea where there is a little pebble beach and jetty suitable for sunbathing and swimming for all ages.

What makes this villa unique

Welcome to the most southern part of Croatia, probably the most beautiful area of whole Adriatic coast. The regional centre of this area is Dubrovnik, included on the UNESCO World Heritage list.

The Mediterranean climate, crystal clear sea, tranquil inlets, coves and breathtaking sea views allows you to experience peaceful and relaxing holiday. If you are a relaxed traveller looking for a quiet getaway, it's possible to soak up the sun on some of Croatia's most beautiful beaches.

The closeness of the Dalmatian islands allows you to easily visit and explore them all.

The island of Korcula has a city called Korcula that is the historical heart of the island. Korcula old town became a small town fortress during the 13th century. Highly elevated churches and houses and a wall around the city deterred many invaders during the middle ages. The largest and most breathtaking building is St. Marco Cathedral which is the premier point on the island.

  • 5 of 5

Villa: Pretty, spacious and well equipped villa, really felt like home from home. Spotlessly clean and well maintained, enhanced by Katy's artistic touches.

Grounds: extensive landscaped gardens, choice of terraces, balconies and tranquil spots, beautiful pool area, outside showers, fab BBQ. Add a private mooring jetty and beach area,complete with sun beds and kayak..what more can you want?

Setting: on a small headland commanding 270 views of the beautifully tranquil, wooded bays and islands out to sea. Breathtakingly gorgeous.

Service: nothing is too much trouble for Katy and her family. Its her home as well as her business.

Local Area: Pretty Vela Luka 10mins away by car, Supermarket on the outskirts. Don't miss the daily fish/produce market. Ask if you can't find it! Everyone speaks English and people are v friendly. Car hire and taxi companies couldn't be more helpful. Ferries from Vela Luca to Hvar, Split etc.

Plenty of restaurants/bars . Try "Bata" restaurant for excellent local food.

Korcula town ("little Dubrovnic" definitely worth a visit) is at the opposite end of island, we found it quite a trip by boat and went by car the second time, which was quicker!

Proizd island with its white pebbles and crystal water is a short boat ride away

Tips:

The mooring at Villa Katy has a lazy line, so you don't need to worry about dropping an anchor.

If you are waterskiing from Villa Katy make sure you stay at least 200m from the shore for safety of any swimmers and so as no to disturb the "neighbours" (not may of those about!)

Friendly local families occasionally picnic/swim on the adjacent foreshore. The shoreline belongs to Croatia, so they are entitled to do so but they are very careful not to wander onto private land, and are absolutely no trouble.

We drove a charter boat from Split to Korcula this year but it was 3.5hrs each way and guzzled so much fuel. Next year we'll catch the sea plane (18minutes) to take the ferry is which is only £7 pp

It is truly paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

My family spent one unforgettable week in this villa in September. We have traveled quite a lot and stayed in some pretty special places but this villa is situated right on the most pristine water giving an unbelievable experience! The owner thought of everything in the design of this home. The rooms were beautiful and fully equipped. We spent most of our time outside in the gazebo and on the terrace overlooking the most beautiful turquoise water! I cannot say enough great things about this villa. It is in a perfect location, perfectly maintained and only steps away from the beach. It is truly paradise!! We shall be back. Highly recommended!

Lovely villa, stunning setting!

  • 5 of 5

We can only agree with the majority of the reviews already written that this is a superb holiday villa. The villa was comfortable, spacious and well-equipped. The amazing view from the villa and the pool will stay forever in our memory. All in the house was perfect and absolutely comfortable. Since we rented a car, we also visited nearby towns including enchanting Dubrovnik. We had a very relaxing holiday, only too short! Thank you Katy also for the delicious cake made our leaving a little bit sweeter.

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time here, the villa and location was fantastic for sightseeing and relaxing which was exactly what we wanted from our holiday. The villa was very specious and clean and set in lovely grounds right next to the sea. The planting around the house is beautiful, it's so quiet it feels like your own secret hideaway. We soon established a daily ritual, of a morning dip in the sea followed by breakfast on the terrace… leaving us to decide whether to relax by the pool or venture out to discover new beaches and seaside villages...then finishing off each evening with meal of freshly caught fish and some local wine on the dining terrace and perhaps one more dip in the pool.

We shall be back - thank you Katy and Tonci.

Awesome Croatian Island experience

  • 5 of 5

Our two weeks-long stay at this villa was the best part of our 3 week visit to Croatia. The villa was absolutely lovely. The view was spectacular. The waterfront location was close to everything you needed or wanted to do, and the property and situation of the villa provided a sense of privacy and serenity unequaled by any vacation property we have ever rented.

The villa and the setting were perfectly married, an ideal property by the sea. The view from the property was expansive and idyllic.The villa is fully equipped with even a microwave, free wifi, and an outdoor BBQ make it feel like home.

We particularly liked the serenity and just being able to watch the occasional yacht drifting silently across the bay was truly wonderful. The large shady front terrace and the gazebo area outside was a real bonus allowing us to cool off after baking round the poolside! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this villa. Thanks for a brilliant time.

perfect holiday in wonderful Villa Katy

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a perfect holiday in wonderful Villa Katy, which is one of the best villas we have ever stayed in. We spent most of our time relaxing by the lovely pool or eating/drinking on the splendid terrace. The kids also enjoyed the spacious outdoor areas where they could play.

The spectacular location are quite literally breathtaking and will live long in our memories.

The owner was easy to contact and helpful both before we arrived and during the stay.

I could not recommend this villa highly enough.
