In addition to the essentials of: bread, butter, milk, tea, coffee, etc., Villa Opus will greet its guests with some delicious local produce, such as:
White Wine Red Wine Sparkling Wine Fresh Olives Fresh fruit Nuts Homemade Korcula Virgin Olive Oil Homemade cookies; sweets (candies); jam (preserve/jello)
The villa’s catering team will provide fantastic home-cooked local food in possibly the most spectacular setting on the island: Villa Opus’ terrace looking over the sea.
You do nothing accept enjoy the sunset and the wine. The dining table outside will be set; our two chefs will cook you a delicious meal; and your waiting staff will serve you and clear away afterwards.
All for the same price or less than a restaurant meal.
Our Korcula-based staff and contacts have selected some excellent local wines for the villa, varying in cost and quality. Please see the separate wine list, with tasting notes and prices. Korcula and the Peljesac Peninsula (which you can see from the window) produce some of the best wines in Croatia.
Villa Opus’ own private boat is available for guests to charter with a skipper. Our beautiful new Axopar 28 T Top won the prestigious Powerboat of the Year Award in 2017.
Korcula has some fabulous hidden and secluded bays to explore with the Axopar. There are many smaller islands with amazing restaurants around Korcula, like Vrnik Arts Club and Moro Beach Stupe.
If you charter the boat for a week it will be moored directly outside the villa for your use. Let your private skipper drive you to lunch in idyllic bays or smaller islands; or he can take you into Korcula Town for dinner.
There is no more exciting, memorable and romantic way to spend a day or evening. See Reservations for prices.

The villa has several places for yoga outdoors with wonderful views of the sea.

There are many excellent restaurants on Korcula Island, and sadly we haven’t tried them all…yet. These are just a few that we have enjoyed and negotiated special deals for Villa Opus guests. Our villa managers can recommend alternatives.
Aterina is a locals’ favourite with excellent unpretentious fresh local food, served with a smile from staff with big characters and a great sense of humour.
Jelana and her mother prepare honest, organic, locally grown food served from the heart. A genuine farm-to-table restaurant and a fabulous experience.
Mate is a traditional family-owned, charming restaurant, inland on Korcula (20 minute drive from Villa Opus), next door to a beautiful old church. Fabulous local food and very friendly staff.
Located on a stunningly beautiful bay just a couple kilomters from the villa, Dalmatino is one of our favourite places to eat. Family run for 17 years by the wonderful Pavel and Zana, you will eat fresh seafood and delicious vegetables with a glorious view. They also have a jetty to moor Villa Opus’ boat for an early dinner followed by a sunset cruise back.
Another perfect restaurant to take the Villa Opus boat to. Located on the historic island of Vrnik, this converted shoolhouse is made for long lunches followed by a lazy afternoon on their beach.
Bar, restaurant, beach club with more of an Ibiza vibe to it. Another perfect place to take the villa’s private boat.
Mimi’s Bistro is just over 1km from the villa located on the beach in lovely Zrnovska Bay, at Tara’s Lodge Hotel. A good option for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
