“Fabulous place to stay”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

We arrived late (apparently common for UK visitors flying into Dubrovnik) but were warmly met by the owners who had left us a welcome platter of meats and cheese and wine. The apartment was spotless and spacious. Every morning, our private breakfast was served on the balcony, lenty of it too - we were encouraged to make up lunch, or just keep the leftovers in our fridge. The apartment wasn't cleaned during our stay (5 days) but as it was spotless to begin with, that was fine. Fresh towels provided on request, and also beach towels.
The owners run various activities (snorkeling trips, buggy rides, cycling, kayaking) which we were under no pressure to participate in. They also gave us free use of their kayaks and bikes (we were pretty much their only guests, so I don't know if this would always be possible when they are busy).
Villa Sokul is on a quiet bay just outside Lumbarda town. The town is a few minutes drive or an easy cycle ride. Maybe 30 minutes flat walk around the headland. Lumbarda itself is a small town with a small marina and just enough amenities. Surrounding it are vineyards (try the local wine - grk - which is only produced here), walks in the woods and a couple of beaches. Korcula town is maybe 15 mins drive away or you can walk, cycle, kayak, or take a bus or taxi. The other end of the island is only an hour in the car.

Ok so we had a ridiculous amount of space with two of us in the penthouse which sleeps five....but this really is a fabulous apartment, in a great location, and I really can't fault it. The owners are friendly but not intrusive, the breakfast delivered every morning is a really nice touch (and super tasty) and the apartment has all of the amenities you could need.

The location is about 15 mins walk from the centre of the village, and a 10 min bus ride from korcula town. The village has plenty of restaurants and a couple of supermarkets, the larger being just up the hill beyond the bus stop.

We will be back!

This place is incredible. The apartment is spacious and very clean and the balcony is not only huge but has a fantastic view over the harbour. At the end of the driveway you'll find a picturesque harbour, which I swam in each day before breakfast. The absolute bonus is free bike and kayak hire, not to mention the great trips available in the owner's motor boat. My favourite thing though was the very generous breakfast served on the balcony. Thanks very much to our hosts Blazenka and Zoran - we had the best time.

I visited Villa Sokol with my wife and our friends past September and regret for not being able to stay any longer. ( They were sold out for the rest of the Summer ) Friendly and helpful owners, spotless with a million dollars view in a quiet area of island of Korcula.

We stayed 4 nights in August 2012 at the top, the penthouse. 2 parents + 2 children aged 18 & 20yrs. Lovely spacious, airy apartment with 2 good bathrooms. A balcony with views over 20 miles of sea dotted with islands. Clean, air con was fine in 35C heat, all mod cons. Excellent breakfast each morning which was big enough for lunch as well. Hostess couldn't do enough to help, both cheerful & helpful. Good quality bike free to use. Good kayaks free with easy paddle to islands. Hired motor boat & sailing boat locally which was rewarding with crystal clear water & islands to visit & swim from. Most enjoyable stay but Croatian food in general unimaginative & expensive.

We had a wonderful week stay at Villa Sokol. The host and hostess were always helpful, friendly and full of information. Excellent breakfast served to our likings every day. The free bikes were in very good condition and the House was 5 minutes trip away from Central Lumbarda. In general we got more than we asked for. Only drawback was the hard beds. Thad did not give a perfect sleeping quality.

Villa sokol was fabulous - large apartment with a balcony and wonderful sea view. High standard of accommodation with free use of kayaks and bikes and we took advantage of both. Very friendly and helpful hosts who go out of their way to ensure you have a great stay. They brought breakfast to our apartment each day which was lovely - even when we left at 530am for the ferry they made us sandwiches and drinks for the journey. We could not fault this place - we loved it. Korcula town is only 5 to 10 mins away by taxi and there are plenty or taxis - it was never a problem getting one even for 5 of us. If you want an active or relaxing break in a quiet location away from the crowds book it!
