Korčula Island

123 villas found.
Korčula is the sixth largest Croatian island, spanning around 32km and characterised by its very thin and long shape. It’s a beautiful place with dense natural scenery and little historic towns, retaining a peaceful atmosphere even in the busy summer months.
Despite the brilliant range of things to see and do on Korčula, the island isn’t as popular as some of its northern rivals because it is further away from the big cities like Split and Dubrovnik.
This makes it a great choice for travellers who really want to relax on their holiday to Croatia, so if this sounds like you then why not browse our selection of villas in Korčula below.

About Korčula Island

Korčula was first occupied by the Illyrian tribes who ruled most of Dalmatia until the island was colonised by the ancient Greeks. It was known primarily for the large, thick forest that gave it the nickname Black Korcula (Kerkyra melaina).

Best Time to Visit

Korčula has a typical climate of a Mediterranean island; hot and dry summer and cooler, wetter winters. If you really love the heat and want to soak up as much sun as possible then June to August is the best time of year to visit, whereas tourists who prefer to visit in the off-season should opt for May or September when the island will be quieter.

Best Things To Do In

One of Korčula’s biggest claims to fame is that it was the birthplace of famous ​​merchant and traveller Marco Polo, so if you visit the island then a great thing to do is visit his alleged childhood home. If you’d rather sunbathe than sightsee, you can catch a boat from Korčula to nearby Proizd for a beautiful deserted island experience where you won’t be disturbed by many other tourists.

Best Places To Go In

Korčula Old Town is the best place to go for sightseeing on the island and is often referred to as ‘Little Dubrovnik’ because of the red-roofed buildings and similar architectural styles. St Mark’s Cathedral is a highlight, built in the 15th century and one of the most beautiful buildings on the island.

What our guests say

Fantastic home for a fantastic stay. We loved our time here and would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing time away. Top tips from us - don’t stress about parking, the roads are very narrow and parking isn’t easy so use the car park on the way in to Pollensa. It’s only a 5 minute walk and is very safe. There is a lovely bakery just 2 minute walk away on the main road in and not far from the chemist. Enjoy!

Great villa, comfortable beds, clean and the welcome pack was really appreciated. Good location and the pool and table tennis went down very well with everyone.

Charming and lovely townhouse in the old part of Pollenca. Recently refurbished to a very high standard. House is really well equipped. ACs in all the rooms meant it was never too hot even in the August. High walls give a lot of privacy and also make the sun more bearable. Pool was lovely. We quickly got used to parking in the side streets around the house, but it is also possible to park slightly outside the town. We used a car to go Puerto Pollenca to get to the fantastic beaches. Their Internet was good enough for video calls for work Communication with the manager was easy and quick. Would clearly recommend and also go back.

"The villa was very well presented, spotlessly clean, and surprisingly well equipped – it even had a tea-pot! The welcome pack was probably the best and most comprehensive I’ve seen!.. Pollenca is a good base if you want to have good access to the coast without being in a coastal resort."

We had a great stay and the communication with Colin was brilliant. The villa is very clean and spacious and the beds are comfortable. The pool area is fantastic and the steps in are great for children. The pool was also really warm considering it’s not heated and the view of the mountains is fantastic. Lovely quiet area but a 25 min walk into the square in Pollenca and 5 min drive to the Port. Lovely area and lots of great restaurants and beaches nearby. We were a family of 8 (7 adults and one child) and would definitely like to return :)
