Within the walls of the charming medieval town of Korcula, with its winding alleyways and tiny churches, this carefully restored hotel lies on the site of an eighteenth century bishop’s palace and hamlet. Next door to the former abode of Marco Polo, its five residences promise an intimate and highly personalised stay, each featuring exquisite furnishings inspired by the Silk Road travels of the great traveller. Epicures will appreciate the LD Terrace Restaurant where seasonal local produce is enhanced by the chance to taste the region’s wines. Your fully serviced residence allows dining or in-room indulgence in an inspiring array of treatments in the privacy of your residence; or retreat to the charming spa treatment rooms within the palace. There are many sights of historical interest within easy reach.
The coastal regions of both countries enjoy a typically Mediterranean climate with hot, dry summers. The height of summer in July and August can be hot with moderate humidity. May, June and September are often the best times to visit. Winters on the coast are mild with increased rainfall.
