Hidden within the walls of the charming medieval town of Korcula you’ll find the epitome of luxury –  the Lešic Dimitri Palace. Built in the walls of a restored 18th Century bishop’s palace and a cluster of medieval cottages, the attention to details are exceptional. Hole up in one of the stunning apartments here as you discover the pleasures of this little island retreat from the mouthwatering food to the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic. Although if you find it hard to leave your room, we wouldn’t blame you.

Location

Set in the heart of Korcula’s old town and just on the water’s edge, Lešic Dimitri Palace is the perfect spot to head out and explore from. Right outside the door you’ll find an endless street of local restaurants, and a little more exploration will uncover beautiful cafés and hidden shops down the winding alleys of this medieval town. Don’t be surprised to find yourself serenaded under a stone bridge by local warblers either.

Your room

As the building sits next door to the house of Marco Polo, each of the six residences are named and designed after one of the stops on Marco’s Silk Road travels. Ranging from one to four bedrooms, every beautifully designed residence has everything you could need for the perfect stay whether you choose Venice, India, China, or even the local Korcula residence.
