Blessed with a mild and almost subtropical climate, Korčula is warmer than any of the islands to the north. That is probably one of the reasons why the town of Korčula is one of the most significant urban settlements on the east Adriatic coast.
Korčula’s fortified walls used to protect the inhabitants from attack and from stormy winds in the winter months, while the unique architectural layout of streets in the structure of a fishbone allowed summer breezes to cool it down.
The interaction of town with the sea spreads extends to the nearby archipelago of islands, each of which has its own story. They amaze those who choose to absorb the harmony, the perfect shade and secluded pebble beaches.
The warren of little alleys, empty in winter and pulsing with life in the season, is ideal for losing oneself, finding an interesting company, or discovering a secret corner away from public eyes, just as it has been through the ages.
The LD Gourmet experience, that can make any ordinary moment into a special celebration is inspired by the harmony between traditional & modern, wine & food, flavours & seasons. The therapeutic benefits & savours of the locally grown herbs of LD Spa treatments make one feel a true lightness of being.
Lešić Dimitri Palace is an exclusive retreat hidden within the walls of the medieval old town of Korčula. The 18th-century palace was lovingly restored over five years and now offers luxury hotel accommodation, a gourmet restaurant, and a spa.
