Property Description

Korcula, "capital" of the sunny Croatian island of Korcula is the scenery for the story of
"Palace Ismaelli"

Also known as "Little Dubrovnik", this 14e century city is mostly know as the birthplace of Marco polo.

Thanks to faith and Unesco the city hasn't changed that much since.
The fortified city is a collection of perfectly preserved and still inhabbited medieval buildings.
The very narrow but cosy streets are filled with life thanks to the presence of countless of typical restaurants, terraces and shops.

As a touristic hotspot, Korçula is mostly know by sailors, the trendier tourists and some celebrities such as Roman Abramovic, John Malcovic, Tom Cruise and many more.

Palace Ismaelli

In the 15e century, two very rich families saved Korcula from decay,
the Ismaellis an the Gabriellis.
They saved buildings and churches and did buisiness in Dalmatia, Venice and Napoli.
In the centre of town they each build a palace next to each other.
Throughout the centuries the palaces were rebuild according to the architectural styles
of that time. We can still see influences of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque style.
The two families shared the same armour and is still visible on the facade today.

These days, the Gabrielli palace houses the Korcula Museum while the
Ismaëlli palace is devided into several appartments.

The appartment

The appartment is just 100 m² in size, but still it contains 2 large bedrooms,
1 bathroom, a modern kitchen that is perfectly integrated into the
wide stylish livingroom.
The complete renovation, completed in 2008, combines the old walls and
authenticity of the old building with all modern conveniences and luxury.
Of course, a complete new roof is one of those essentials.
The interior and furnishing is so complete that the appartment is ready to live in.
Even the bottle of champagne in the fridge is waiting to celebrate the purchase.
But we will let the pictures do the rest of the talking.
