If the first thing that comes to mind when you hear "KORCULA island" is "Birth place of Marco Polo" we're here to expand your horizons. We're excited to introduce you to clear seas, dramatic landscapes, incredible food and some history.
Korcula town, which is only 5 km drive away from Villa Opus, combines a hint of Dubrovnik chic with an abundance of natural beauty. Just like Dubrovnik, the medieval old town of Korcula is squeezed onto a peninsula, where narrow stone lanes all lead down to the sea. Unlike Dubrovnik, however, its remote location keeps the vibe mellow and the crowds to a minimum, and the town has been named one of the most romantic in Europe. Local legend says explorer Marco Polo was born here, and the site of his alleged birth is open to visitors. Do we really have to explain more the allure of the Korcula?
Villa Opus is a luxury villa located in a small bay, surrounded by the scents and colours typical of this island. If chilling by the pool is your thing, Villa Opus will hit the spot. For relaxing there is the villa's wonderful heated pool surrounded by a large terrace where you can enjoy breakfast or sip a cocktail, without missing even one minute of sun.
Individually and stylishly decorated with uncluttered elegance, all four bedrooms open out onto terraces with fabulous views over the bay and the Peljesac Peninsula beyond. Cushions, blinds and bedspreads are rich and textured, with silks and materials sourced from around the world. All the air-conditioned bedrooms have Egyptian cotton linens with opulent bathrooms and plenty of fluffy towels to pamper oneself with after a day in the sea or around the pool.
The stylish kitchen has uninterrupted views over the bay and holds all the gadgets needed to make cooking and hosting a pleasure. The living room combines contemporary furniture, artwork and sculpture mixed with antique and modern pieces from around Europe. You’ll find solace from the midday heat in the calming interior at Villa Opus. Lounge on sofas in the spacious living area, decorated in chic pastel tones and enjoy those spectacular sea views through floor to ceiling windows.
Accommodation is spread over three floors.
Entrance Level – Two bedroom suits can be found off the main entrance hall. Both benefit from full height glass windows giving access to the stunning sea and mountain views. Blackout curtains open to let sunbeams flood the room with warm light. Both bedrooms open onto a large balcony with a lounge area allowing guests to take breakfast or just to escape to their own private domain. The bathrooms are a sublime exercise in understated opulence.
Middle floor – Two Master en-suite bedrooms with patio doors leading out on to their own private terrace giving panoramic sea views over the pool. Both rooms have large king size beds which can be made into twin single beds.
Ground floor – The living room and kitchen open on to an outside terrace and pool area. Sliding glass doors allow the floor to become open plan, creating an alfresco living environment. There is the option of dining inside or outside and the use of a large outside grill. A self-contained gym with a sauna, and shower room can also be found on this level.
Luxury Villa Opus is a tiny bit of paradise offering the ultimate in discretion. Why we love it: our off-the-beaten-path luxury villa is an unexpected find situated on the unspoilt and almost undeveloped coast.

Korčula island is famous for its winding coasts, small fishing villages, olive trees and vineyards (pošip grapes are primarily only grown here). Whether you are cycling around the island, swimming in hidden beaches or spending the day wine tasting the local Grk wine - you’ll be wishing you had more time to spend here. We all long to find that special luxury villa that's right on the water. Last but not least enjoy your time there, it’s not every day you’ll be on an island in the middle of the Adriatic Sea.
