About Vedrana Krsinic

I am an art critic and curator living in Zagreb and Lumbarda. I enjoy in my Lumbarda's home which is a part of renaissance summer country residence under protection of the government as a cultural monument.

Vedrana Krsinic purchased this villa in 1600

Why Vedrana Krsinic chose Lumbarda

In the 16th century aristocrats of Korcula have built several summer country residences ('Kastil') in Lumbarda. I inherited one of these marvelous old estates. My ancestors had invested a lot of effort to maintain the property. In return they got a privilege of living a long, simple and peaceful life in beautiful surroundings. My aim is to pursue in their footsteps

What makes this villa unique

Many homes for rent are similar. By abandoning traditional construction methods that were in relation to local ambient, they have unfortunately lost the specific identity of Mediterranean houses. Vila Kastil, however, maintained to keep the appearance characteristic of old Dalmatian villas. It is a part of renaissance summer country residence that is under protection of the Croatian Ministry of Culture as a cultural monument. Whilst staying at Villa Kastil, you will find peace and beauty of antique environments.

Idyllische paradijs in Lumbarda

  • 5 of 5

Onze verblijf bij Vedrana was een droom. Het huis is prachtig, sfeervol, netjes maar relaxed. We waren negen in totaal - drie families met drie kinderen - maar vonden dat we toch genoeg privacy hadden op de momenten dat we daar behoefde aan hadden omdat we drie aparte woningen ter ons beschikking hadden. Anderzijds waren de 3 verschillende terrasjes ideaal om samen te eten, tijd door te brengen, en gewoon samen te ontspannen. Vedrana is een fantastische gastvrouw. Ze heeft ons verwelkomt met een zelfgemaakte taart en was altijd beschikbaar als we iets nodig hadden. Ze gaf ons tips over Lumbarda, de stranden, wandelmogelijkheden, inkoop mogelijkheden (zodat we direct van lokale boeren verse groende konden kopen) en leerde ons over locale kruiden en geneeskrachtige planten. We hebben bij Vedrana niet alleen een ideale vakantieplek gevonden maar ook een bijzondere persoon en we kijken het naar uit om weer bij haar van de Kroatische idylle te genieten.

The house is simply wonderful and the garden is a little peace of heaven.

Ms. Vedrana is a very special guest and her simple but careful style made easy and nice our relationship from the beginning.

We experienced very good time in Korcula enjoying beautiful beaches and landscapes.

We really enjoyed our 5 day stay in Lumbarda. A modern apartment in a lovely old building with secluded courtyards. Easy access to beaches and facilities. Vedrana, the owner is just delightful and very welcoming.

Lumbarda is located at the southern end of the island of Korcula, and there are the most beautiful beaches on the island. Three sandy beaches are suitable for families with children. More than 2 kilometres of rocky beaches and an archipelago of ten small islands in front of Lumbarda are ideal places for lovers of solitude. The sea is crystal clear.

Lumbarda is interesting in spring and autumn because of its mild climate, without rain. There are more than 2700 sunny hours and only 40 rainy days per year. The average annual temperature is 16.8 degrees C.
