The offered real estate is to be found in the center of Orebić, 60 meters from the sea, very near to all services of the town. From the house, standing in a calm, silent little blind alley we can reach the nice beaches, the seaside promenade and the local port within 20 minutes by walk and by ferryboat we can reach Korčula old town, so sauntering there is listed among local program possibilities too.
Orebić is a town of the second biggest peninsula of Croatia - the dalmatian Peljesac peninsula –with round 1700 inhabitants. It is located on the mainland, facing Korčula town. Even to arrive here is a special experience, we can see a fascinating panorama approaching the town, the rocks, the mountains, the sea channel with the little islands, with Orebić and Korčula. Unforgetably beautiful scenery!
The town is cosy, with a real mediterranean atmosphere, with vivid vegetation, a picturesque resort blessed with a fresh coloured flora. Its long sandy-gritty beach makes it especially attractive. Its location is beautiful because of the proximity of the mountains, they protect the town from being jammed with buildings, as they block its expansion.
Orebić has got an especially comfortable micro-climate, so in January the temperature in general is not lower than +8 ⁰C while in July it is +26 ⁰C, in October in turn +18 ⁰C. The temperature of the sea in the middle of the turist season, in July-August, is in general +26 ⁰C, in winter +15 ⁰C. The end of the bathing season is generally end of October. The settlement is protected from the unpleasant Bora wind by the mountains.
Everybody can find the for him most favourable bathing possibility on the sandy, gritty and occasionally rocky beach along the shore of the town. The popular, nearly 1 km long Trstenica sandy beach is to be found on the eastern part of Orebić, we can easily approach by walk within 10-15 minutes , if we follow the seashore eastwards. Families with little children favour this beach because of its calm, slowly deepening water. We can find more romantic rocky parts as well, where we can hide in the shadows of high pine trees on hot summer days.
Those who come to Orebić not only to bath, but would like to try the different ways of active recreation, can chose from a variety of possibilities, such as swimming, surfing, water skiing, rowing, sailing and underwater fishing. The Pelješac channel is one of Europe’s most favoured surfing and kite surfing paradise.
Within the town of Orebić, we can take long, enjoyable walks. The seashore walkway with its beautiful natural capabilities leads us to the promenade of the town, where the old captain’s houses stand. Here is an interesting attraction, the maritime museum (Pomorski Muzej), where we can study the history of the maritime center and its vicinity which played an important role in the past. The settlement is lying on the southern slope of the peninsula, so the rays of the afternoon sun are benignly fondling the coast, jewelled with colourful mediterranean vegetation. Walking among palm-, pine-, lemon-, orange- and almondtrees are delicating body and soul as well. We can discover numerous seaside coffees, where we can comfortably enjoy our time with our favourite drink, cosy restaurants are inviting us. Nightlife fans are waited by cocktailbars. Noisy discotheques are not characteristic for Orebić.
There is a wondeful chance for a walk towards the mountain, to the gothic-renaissance style Franciscan monastery. (Franjevacki Samostan). The monastery can be approached by car but it is worth walking up through the forest, under the tunnel created by the crown of the densely growing pine trees. The monastery was built in the 16. century A.D. at an altitude of 152 meters above sea level. The observation loggia built on a rocktoe on the southern side of the church is free to visit at any time. There is a unique panorama from here to the town surrounded by the mountains, to the surrounding islands and to Korčula. Many people walk up here on the forest road day by day because they can not enjoy much enough the outstanding panorama of the place. This place served as a perfect observation point throughout the centuries, in emergency it was possible to alert the town and the vicinity, after having recognised the danger. The move of the Venetian galleons, pirate ships and other enemies was controlled from here in order to defend the Ragusan Republic as well. Travellers sailing here with benign intentions greeted the church with a poop, asking for protection and bless, in order to have a safe journey. The Franciscan monks answered in turn with the bell of the church.
There are more, with signposts well equipped tourist ways leading up to the mountains protecting the town from the Bora wind. The highest peak of the Pelješac peninsula is the 961 m high Saint Eliah (Sveti Ilija), from where you can see - among ideal weather conditions - even the Italian coast of the Adriatic Sea. Climbing up the mountain demands more time and fitness of course, the peak can be reached in about round 2 hours. Fans of extreme sports can descend from here either by paraglider or by hangglider while they can enjoy the beauty of the Pelješac channel and the surrounding islands from bird’s eye view.
