Overlooking the cosy bay and palm trees that line the old city of Vela Luka’s harbour, the Hotel Korkyra offers a holiday in elegant and charming surroundings, where the modern in-house facilities are perfectly matched with the historical and traditional beauty of the centre of the town. Featuring a large outdoor pool as well as a fully-equipped wellness centre, which includes two saunas, a gym, a hydro-therapeutic Kneipp pool and a variety of treatments, the hotel is very much a place that welcomes hours of pure relaxation, when you’re not busy exploring the beaches and the quaint villages on Korcula.
The location of the hotel means that you can easily discover the western side of the island, while ferries enable you to go on daytrips to either the medieval town of Split or the peaceful isle of Lastovo. When you return from a day of taking in the many sights along Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, the hotel’s restaurant welcomes you to try delicious portions of amazing local cuisine, whilst the bar will let you round off the day with a toast to a holiday well spent so far.
A part of Croatia’s Dalmatian archipelago, Korcula Island takes its name from the Greek settlers who came here in the 6th century B.C. and named it Black Corcyra, after their native land of Corfu and the dark pine forests that cover the island. The main city of the island, also named Korcula, links to the mainland via ferry and offers numerous glimpses into the island’s ancient past, where not only Greeks held the island, but Venetians, Hungarians and even the Byzantine Empire.
Visitors to Korcula can wander through the city’s old town, where its cathedral, fortifications and narrow streets make it seem like you’ve travelled back in time for a brief while. If exploration isn’t on the cards, you can always opt to simply relax and enjoy the slow pace of life that makes Korcula an enchanting island in the Mediterranean.
