About the place
Lešić Dimitri Palace is an exclusive retreat hidden within the walls of the medieval old town of Korčula, on the island of Korčula. The 18th Century Bishop’s palace was lovingly restored and now offers five unique and spacious suites with full hotel service, restaurant and spa. They were designed by an Asian-Croatian team of architects and interior designers and inspired by Korčula’s famous resident Marco Polo and his travels along the Silk Road. The faithful restoration of the Palace has retained many of the original features and combined them with bespoke furniture, excellent design and modern technology.
Five residences range in size from one to three bedrooms, each with a private entrance which provides the level of privacy that helps sustain personal safety and security.
