Hi my name is Steve Fagg. I bought this villa back in 2005 as a shell finished in the rough. I then spent 2 years totally refurbishing the building to bring it up to the current standard. I live in Brentwood south east of England. Villa Jade is managed on Korcula Island by my good neighbours Zeljka, Ivica and their children. Bookings and enquiries are currently now handled by my sister Alison in England. I am a director of my own company Security Shutters Ltd which has been trading now for some 13 years. I love our villa Jade as I personally put every effort into making it what it is today to make sure it was finished to a very high standard. Jade is the name of my lovely daughter. If you book I hope that you enjoy the villa as much as we do. Kind regards, Steve and team.
Owner purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Owner chose Žrnovo
I was in traveling around Croatia on holiday and also maybe looking for an investment/holiday home. When I arrived on Korcula Island I instantly fell in love with the island, it's beautiful old town, laid back feeling and stunning waters. When I eventually found villa Jade and its amazing views from the terrace that was it! I new this was the place and the villa was in such a great location so close to the historic walled city of Korcula old town. The rest is history.
What makes this Apartment unique
Great location with stunning views over the sea and mountains opposite. Villa Jade is right on the water front with a lovely small beach for a swimming in the mornings before breakfast and a little sun bathing of course! The water is absolutely crystal clear for swimming. The villa is located in our lovely village of Medvinjak and you are within a 15 min scenic walk around the bays to the historic walled city of Korcula town where you will find lots of little shops, restaurants, bars and art galleries.
This is a beautiful apartment, a mile away from old Korcula town. There is a gravel beach at the foot of the steps to the apartment which is kept immaculately and with typical clear Adriatic water.
We had a car which really enhanced our stay as some of the beaches are really only accessible by driving (or very challenging cycling)
Having holidayed on the beautiful island of Korcula last year, we returned with friends this year.
We stayed in the Attic Apartment and received a warm welcome by Zelijka on our arrival, who was always on hand to offer advice and assistance when needed.
The apartment was superb, with breathtaking views, and finished to a very high standard. Although the walk along the coast into Korcula Town took us about 30 mins not 14 as advertised, it was nice to be in a quieter location away from the hustle and bustle of the town.
We travelled to Korcula via hire car which we picked up at Dubrovnik airport and thoroughly enjoyed the scenic drive to Orebic where we boarded the ferry. We explored much of this beautiful island by car and were able to swim in the crystal clear sea every day. In the evenings we walked into Korcula Town, stopping for a drink on the way, and visited some of the many bars & restaurants where we found the food to be excellent and moderately priced.
All in all, a fantastic holiday which we can highly recommend.
We stayed for a week in this villa and loved it. The villa itself is large and stylish in a small quiet village. It was nice to be able to walk into Korcula town every night to enjoy the various restaurants and bars while taking in the special atmosphere of this historic little town.
There are a couple of nice sandy beaches in Lumbarda which is only a 5 minute car ride away and very picturesque.
Steve - thanks for the use of your villa and we hope to be back one day.
