Lucie's Apartment is fantastically well located just outside the walled Old Town which affords it some more space and easy access to the harbour. As mentioned by others, it is above a really nice live music bar which can play music until midnight, but they were always very prompt in quietening down after this time during our stay.
The balcony gives you fantastic views which are well represented by the photos here. This is east facing so you get some beautiful morning sun.
The apartment has a "home-like" feel. It is what you would call a "lived in" apartment which can go either way depending on how you like your holiday accommodation. Some people find this style appealing, others prefer something more purpose-built. For example, we found there to be limited space in the wardrobe due to the presence of other clothes.
There is a washing machine which was very handy as we were about half-way through a long trip and had washing to do. There is also a clothes horse in the rear courtyard for drying clothes outside. The bathroom was spacious, modern and finished to a good standard. The bed frame of course you can see is very unique. However I must say that the mattress is also very soft. Some people might like this, but it was the softest bed I personally have ever slept on. I think perhaps a new mattress is required.
As noted there is no air conditioning. I think this is absolutely a correct decision by Lucie and in keeping with the style of the apartment, as by opening the front and rear doors you get a small breeze. Lucie also provides a modern fan for the bedroom. However, given that the advice is to keep the doors and windows open, I do think that there should be mosquito netting fitted over the doorways and windows. There are a lot of mosquitoes around in the summer and if they like you, you will be bitten a lot overnight because sleeping with everything closed is not possible due to the heat.
Lucie also kindly allowed us use of a beach parasol during our stay, which was a necessity for us.
However I should note the experience on our first night. Lucie informed us just when we arrived that the apartment's shower had broken that day and that the plumber was coming the following day to fix it. These things happen of course and she told us she had made alternative arrangements with a friend of hers nearby who also owns holiday apartments where we could stay whilst it was fixed. She said she had paid her friend for this. Unfortunately this alternative was not of the standard of Lucie's apartment and we had to sleep in twin single beds which were very old and uncomfortable. Lucie did not offer us a refund for this first night and we were embarrassed to ask at the time, but I do feel it should have been offered.
Merci Sarah de votre remarques,je suis contente que vous vous etez plus quand meme dans mon appartement.
Concernant les problèmes de plomberie de ma douche cela on ne peut pas prévoir j'étais pris de cour car pour trouver un plombier disponible a votre demande ce n'est pas facile surtout en cette saison et sur une ile.J'étais obligée de trouver une solution rapide et urgente. Mon amie avait un parking pour la voiture,en plus se n'était pas trop loin de ma maison.En moi d'aout ce n'est pas facile de trouver une location dans ces condition là.
Pour cela je voulais endommager Sarah qu'elle reste une nuit de plus car la souivante location arriver le lendemain,mais je comprends très bien qu'ils avaient également leur programme.
Concernant les moustiques j'ai partout des prises électrique pour spécialement pour cela ,je n'avais pas de remarques .
En tout cas j'étais contente de faire conaissance de Sarah et son ami et j'espère les revoir de nouveau sans aucune panne.
We stay at Lucie's apt 7 days and it was a great time! The apt is in the centre of Korcula close to market, restaurants, port and to the old town. Lucie is a very sweetie person. At our arrival in the house we find in the fridge a big plate of fresh fruit and she brought us a bottle of croatian wine. If we came back to Korcula we obviosly stay at Lucie's apt.
We had a wonderful time in Lucie's amazing apartment. Lucie greeted us at the ferry and took us on the short walk to her apartment. Location is perfect for exploring korcula and the old town. We were unlucky one day with the weather which meant we stayed longer in the room and local bars. The apartment is so spacious and comfortable that this didn't matter. Lucie even left us a lovely bottle of wine and made us some sugared almonds. The pictures of the apartment don't do it justice- when we arrived we were so pleased that we asked to stay and extra night and Lucie managed to accommodate this. It is very homely and has everything you could need. There is no Aircon in the bedroom which would have been nice but there was a fan. We would recommend Lucie's apartment to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Korcula. Thank you Lucie.
The apartment is very nice, decorated in a cute shabby chic style. Everything was very clean, the balcony with sea view was charming. The position is really located in the heart of Korcula. Luci was very gentle and helpful with us: she came to join us at the port, she received us with juice, water and wine and she give us a lot of information about the island. The only problem durning our holiday spot was the warmth.
My friend and I stayed at Lucie's apartment for one week. It was a very positive experience. Lucie welcomed us and took us to the apartment which has the perfect location. It looks even nicer than in the pictures so we were pleasantly surprised. There was absolutely nothing missing and our stay was very comfortable.
I would say it's perfect for younger travelers. There is a bar downstairs with live music until midnight. This was ok for us but I can see how it could bother someone a bit.
Lucie even gave us good recommendation about restaurants and where to go for swimming. If I come back to Korcula, I would gladly contact Lucie again.
Lucie came to collect me from the old town.
Her apartment is wonderful, so cute and cosy. A fully equipped kitchen and a perfectly formed bathroom and the bedroom is a dream, just like the pictures.
Music outside at night in a local bar, so you can sit on the balcony with a glass of wine and soak up the atmosphere and wonderful view.
This is a perfect spot for a stay in Korcula.
We had a wonderful stay at eleonora apartment. From start to finish Lucie was a wonderful host, meeting us at the ferry port, showing us around the town, and making sure we had everything that we needed. The apartment itself is absolutely lovely, we couldn't believe how sizeable it was and absolutely everything was catered for. Make sure you try Lucie's homemade Limoncello- it is unbelievable!
We would definitely stay here again, Lucie is the perfect host.
