The Adriatic Times Sinke

People usually dream about a cozy house next to the beach for their summer vacation. But what about having an opportunity to rent a lighthouse in Croatia? Located on a charming inlet of Vela Sestrica in southern regions of Peljesac Channel, an old site called Korkyra Lighthouse eagerly waits for its visitors.

Surrounded by crystal blue shallows of Adriatic Sea, this romantic place was constructed in 1871, in order to navigate the passing vessels. Yet today, it became the luxurious resort for visitors who don’t mind having an entire island for themselves. Completely renovated in 2014, Korkyra literally became a fantastic Adriatic villa, featuring solar-powered bedrooms, classy spa bath facility, an outdoor pool and a lovely terrace.

People lucky enough to book their stay at this place will also receive a 24-hour butler and cleaning service, along with the possibility of ordering a la carte dishes. Guests are free to enjoy their own private beach, and once they wish a rush of adrenaline, the powerful jet-ski vessels are on their disposal.

Excursions to gorgeous sceneries of Dalmatia are also a notable option in Korkyra Lighthouse. Beautiful islands of Korcula and Orebic are less than 20 minutes of sailing away, while renowned vineyards of Peljesac Peninsula are just across the channel. And in case you wish to have a stroll around Dubrovnik ramparts, they can be reached in an hour and a half. For additional fee, you may hire a ship captain, who will gladly lead the way on your Adriatic travels and venture his vessel to fascinating beauties of southern Croatia.

The funny thing lies in fact that Korkyra is still operational, meaning you will literally be considered a part of its crew during your stay. That doesn’t necessary mean any physical work, of course, but as a unique feature you will need to accustom yourself to living in a functioning lighthouse. This means keeping your lights low or windows closed in the night hours, so that the beacon can be visible to distant vessels.
