Steve Fagg purchased this apartment in 2005
I was on holiday in Croatia touring around from Split and on to all the Islands and was looking to invest in an apartment if I saw the right place. When I arrived on Korcula I fell totally in love with the Island, it truly is a beautiful Island.
I went to see a few houses that were advertised and stumbled on this boarded up Villa right on the sea, I managed to fight my way through the overgrown garden and up onto the terrace, that was it I was in love with this house and it's location to the old historic town of Korcula. I will never forget the views from the terrace and can still never get enough of looking out over the sea and mountains opposite.
Amazing views over the sea and mountains, watching all the beautiful boats go by including some amazing cruise and sailing boats.
The location of Villa Jade as being situated in the lovely village of Medvinjak and within comfortable walking distance along the sea to Korcula old town wich has a lovely atmosphere and lots of nice resturants, bars and shops etc to keep you entertained.

Overall, we enjoyed the amenities of the lower ground floor villa, which has everything that we needed. The large, sunny terrace was much bigger than average and the air conditioning was very efficient and quiet - a boon during the very hot and sunny weather we enjoyed.
The drawback for us was that the distances quoted in the website are not accurate, in that the only restaurant/bar nearby is a 15 minutes walk away and the 'local shop' is now closed. Thus, the only shops are situated in Korcula Town, which is a good 25 minutes walk away. If you don't fancy that walk, the only options are taxis or an infrequent bus, which stops at the bottom of the steps.
A pleasant walk from the villa is to turn left at the bottom of the steps and follow the coastal road for 15 minutes to a lovely, quiet inlet/cove (unfortunately, no bar/restaurant there either).
Korcula is the greenest and one of the most beautiful and most interesting of Croatia's 1000 or so Adriatic islands and was said to be a favourite Greek holiday spot over 2000 years ago and the birth place of the great traveller Marco Polo. Korcula old town is described as a mini fortress, a walled city enclosed within honey colored stone walls that contained a labyrinth of quaint cobbled streets with many architectural delights, art-galleries, lots of lovely shops, restaurants and bars. All this is just a 10min scenic walk along the coast from villa Jade.
Various day trips are available by boat to the beautiful ancient walled city of Dubrovnik and the lovely islands of Hvar, Mljet and Lastovo. Things to do include: local boat hire (licence required), scuba diving + local scuba school, wind surfing, fishing and bicycle hire.
