Croatia 2014 part 2, Korcula, for all the family

Posted by

Another ferry ride from Hvar to Korcula was much more controlled and we managed an easy journey and then a short taxi ride to Villa jade for a week with the family. The view from the Villa was spectacular looking back to the coastal mountains of the mainland and the tranquil bays that we walked along to the old town were picture perfect

We wandered around the beautiful old and very compact walled town and got some lunch after unloading our gear and met up with the crew of Julie, Den, Clive, Terese, Joel, Daniel & Jasmine. On the way we passed what looked like a very cool Bar/ restaurant called Maxamillians and decided we would book there for dinner. Well what a great choice that turned out to be, we had the terrace to ourselves and it was an amazing meal, setting, sunset, company and service, what a way to start our time in Korcula we had a blast a few too many Limoncello’s

Every day in Korcula was perfect and the little beach just below Villa Jade was perfect for getting wet and for Beth to get her daily sun dose and so after a morning swim we went into town to pick up our little run about so that we could explore the coast at ease. it was only 6hp so was a bit to slow but we had fun and picked up Jazzy, Joel & Daniel for a run out to the little islands that dot the coast and met a few deer on the way.

The Old town of Korcula is simply beautiful from every angle , perched up on top of the hill or wandering the back lanes.

The narrow streets and alleyways opened up vistas at every turn and these waters are just amazing to see

Clive & Terese were staying on the other side of town and we popped around for regular visits and a few bevies between swims off there terrace and met a number of Terese’s family members

We spent a few days going further afield to visit the wineries of Lumbarda and then to the beaches and towns to the north tip of the island Pupnatska Luka, Blata, Racisce, Kneza and Vela Luka.

Terese arranged for a big family dinner in her Mum’s old village of Zrnovo and what amazing feast it was…maxed out on meat.CIMG0522 CIMG0521 CIMG0518 CIMG0517 CIMG0516 CIMG0510 IMG_7565 IMG_7564

Our last day was spent out on the boat with Joel & Jasmine in a quiet little bay whilst we tried to find the others searching around the bays and coves but to no avail. That afternoon we revisited the old town and ate out again at Maxamillians and enjoyed another spectacular sunset

We had a great time in Korcula and hope one day to return but what made it so special was sharing it with loved ones.
