When we arrived in Prigradica we knew that we had managed to find the perfect location: tranquil and not a typical tourist destination. The apartment was so close to the sea, the beach small and uncrowded and the apartment had a terrace that was just what we needed for outside dining whilst taking in the view. The apartment was lovely and well maintained. There is a little shop in Prigradica, a vegetable stall, restaurant and bar and Blato is only a few minutes drive away for a supermarket.
If you desire ridiculously-priced meals, overcrowded cities, uninviting sea, useless hype, this is not the right place for you. This house is simply superb; well-furnished, essential yet modern, with a magnificent view on the harbour that would be already enough. And then you have, with a two minutes' walk, simply the best beach in wonderful Korkula. Go there before the best-kept secret of Croatia is out. Prigradica is a lovely, quiet, peaceful village with a crystal-clear sea. If you need any kind of shops, larger than the small one in Prigradica (which however sells just everything), you just go to Blato or Vela Luka, and then you return to this slice of heaven. Hugh and Lucia are wonderful hosts. Locals respect you if you respect them and comply with their rules of behaviour: have fun, relax, but don't make too much noise, otherwise go to other overcrowded places. And they are dead right. This is a real island with hidden pearls, away from the madding crowd (except Korkula town and Lumbarda, which are quite hectic). To give you an idea of the complete lack of tourist-trap hype, we also went to a country restaurant (Konoba Mate, Pupnat): in six we paid 127 euros from hors d'oeuvre to dessert - not each, in total, and the meat was superb. Go, go, go!
house was very completed (air cond, new sleeping bad)
all the services run very good.
fantastic position; sea, food, nature
owner: present and so kind
An absolutely stunning village. Filled with friendly people with very well spoken English. Lovely atmosphere and spectacular weather! With a variety of options of towns near by and always something to do. Definitely would return again.
We stayed here actually about 6 years ago. The scenery photos on TA are what you are looking at from the property - absolutely stunning.
Has taken a while but at last all of the TA community can share in one of the most beautiful and peaceful places in the whole of Europe.
Well done to Apartments Lucia in making this available through Tripadvisor and Holidaylettings - we hope to return soon :)
