The Queen, Football, Music, Donkey Racing & Half New Year – Spend June in Korcula

The sun is shining and the ice cream kiosks are ready to serve you a scoop or two of Korcula’s finest gelato. With a number of low cost airliners now flying daily into Dubrovnik and Split, June is the perfect time to visit Korcula and there are plenty of great reasons to be here next month.

Queen’s Diamond Jubilee 2- 5 June 2012

Fellow Brits why not make the most of the long Bank Holiday Weekend celebrating Queen Elizabeth’s 60 year reign and head over to Korcula. The British Empire left its mark even here during the 19th century (albeit their rule was very short). Although sadly now a little dilapidated you can still visit the Piazzeta, a paved semi-circle terrace (head east from Korcula Town) or the Forteca (Fort Wellington) located high in the hills above Korcula.

You can save yourself money by holidaying in June rather than the busy months of July and August when accommodation rates are at their highest. We have availability for the Bank Holiday Weekend with prices for sea view studio apartments sleeping 2 people from €50.00 per night and 2 bedroom apartments from €80.00 per night.
