This stunning waterfront property on Island Korcula, was the brainchild of one of the owners whose family history has roots in the Peljesac area. As a child, he came every summer to spend time with his maternal grandmother, Mimi.
Pancakes at Mimi’s Bistro…a MUST do…
Mimi was the descendant of one of the founding families of Orebic. Her gourmet cooking skills were known not only in Orebic, but also throughout the neighbouring villages. Her black risotto and octopus salad recipes were legendary. Her ability to create a feast out of virtually nothing made her dinners memorable to anyone who attended them. Life in those days was not as simple as it is today, bartering for produce amongst friends was a common occurrence. Mimi’s grandson would spend hours cruising the local waters in search of fish and molluscs to help her have something to barter with.
Mimi’s Octopus Capaccio…
It therefore seemed natural that the owners would name their restaurant Mimi’s Bistro as a tribute to her culinary skills and that so much emphasis would be put on the epicurean side of our proposed tours.
A room with a view…..
Although bartering is not quite as prevalent today, we do still catch our own octopus and fish. This allows us, whenever possible, to propose snorkelling charters and fishing outings so that our guests can witness first hand the catch in the wild. It also has enabled us to create privileged relationships with winemakers and olive grove owners.
Daily private boating day excursions……..
The owners are keen to help their guests discover and understand some of the fascinating history that has unravelled in this small piece of paradise. Our knowledge of the area is considerable, and although we have yet to uncover all the secrets it holds, we would like to invite you to take home with you more than just a few pictures.
By the pool……
Join us for one of our tours and enjoy the beauty of unspoilt nature, friendship around a table set with delicious foods and evenings spent re-making the world with a wonderful glass of wine
At sunset, time to relax, indulge and enjoy…. on Island Korcula
