Villa Octavia is a new beach front, modern, opulent Croatian holiday rental home on the world famous island of Korcula, which you can reach from Split or Dubrovnik. The villa is located five kilometres from the eponymous magical walled town of Korcula, an important historic part of the old Silk Road which is still reflected in Korcula's culture and art. Walk through the narrow cobbled streets studded with cafes, boutique shops and restaurants and you might arrive to a medieval square where men in traditional outfits dance the great ancient "Moreska" dance, rattling their sabres.
Villa Octavia is arranged on three floors and is a real Croatian beachside villa. It is very luxurious and stylish, with cool interiors, TVs and hairdryers in all bedrooms, top quality beds and bed linen which is changed twice a week. This elegant waterfront holiday home has its own swimming dock with private boat mooring and its own small beach with sunbeds. It is completely air-conditioned and offers a gym and a sauna. Apart from the grand, two-story height living room, the villa’s main feature is the spectacular infinity swimming pool with direct views over the sea. The villa in general has fabulous sea views and has large glass windows and terraces which provide great entertainment or relaxation in the sun.
You will eat well in Korcula if you like simply grilled fresh fish or slow cooked herb-fed lamb. These go so well with the Korcula famous white wine called Posip, or the wonderful deep red Dingac. Wonderful sandy and pebbly beaches are great for lazy days or you can explore authentic fishing villages, churches and another lovely town called Vela Luka. Go surfing and kayaking, deep sea fishing, diving, or boat lazily along the pine scented bays, stopping for fabulous fresh sea food on route. Hop off to the wild Peljesac peninsula for more beaches and wineries (15 minutes ferry ride).
The ground floor comprises a large sitting room with a dining area, modern kitchen, gym, sauna, cloakroom and a laundry room.
The focal point for relaxing and entertaining is the elegant living room with designer sofas and other seating, stunning chandeliers, paintings, antiques and open fireplace. For amusement there are satellite LCD TV, DVD player, a 3D TV with internet access with many DVDs, CD player, Xbox, iPod docks (in every room), an iPod stereo system connected to the internal and external speakers and boardgames.
The modern kitchen is equipped with a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, cooker with six ceramic rings, hood, oven, microwave, mixer, coffee maker, electric kettle, toaster, a full set of cooking utensils and excellent tableware. The modern, wood and metal dining table sits eight people comfortably and you will dine with a magnificent view of the bay in front of you.
The gym is equipped with a treadmill, a bike and a bench for weight lifting and a set of weights. The adjoining sauna can accommodate six people and there is a shower attached. In the laundry room there is a washing machine, a tumble dryer, iron and ironing board.
The first floor of the villa consists of two spacious and luxuriously equipped bedrooms with king size double beds that can be used as separate single beds or as a double bed. Excellent bed linen and towels are provided. The rooms have TVs and DVD players, modern ensuite bathrooms, one of which has a shower and another has both a shower and bath. The bedrooms adjoin the first floor terrace which has panoramic views of the sea and a wonderful set of sofas with a coffee table…for quiet moments.
The main entrance is located on the second floor where there are two master bedrooms with beautiful, new ensuite bathrooms, one with a shower and another with a shower and a bath. Each room has a large double bed, LCD satellite TV and a DVD player. The private balcony for each bedroom has chairs and a table and is heavenly, with sea view.
Step outside the glass-clad living room, and you will be on the magnificent pool terrace. Pool steps lead you into a large, swimming pool (10 by 4 metres) which feels as if it is linked with the sea. To one side of the terrace is a set of top class outdoor sofas and parasols. At the opposite end, you will find a barbecue and an outdoor table for al fresco dining. Beach towels are provided. The villa has private beach access with its own mooring, where the villa has its own small "beach club"! It is recommended to moor larger yachts in the village harbour or using a buoy. You can also rent a boat just for a day; you will be picked up in front of the villa by a skippered boat and set off for the islands of Lastovo, Mljet, Vis, Hvar and the Elaphite islands of Dubrovnik for a real Adriatic sailing experience. Absolutely stunning!
