The vineyard castle hotel Villa Antonio with new pool is located uppon the village of Postup on the southern tip of the Peljesac peninsula, offering picturesque views of the city of Orebic and the Isle of Korcula, birthplace of Marco Polo. The castle sits atop a lush vineyard, boasting a spectacular panorama of the countryside and small islands in the channel.
The Peljesac peninsula - and specifically the village of Postup - has been renowned for the quality of its grapes and wine since Roman times. Due to the many sunny days in Peljesac, the sugar content in the local grapes reaches 22,5 the optimum gravity for producing the best Postup wine. At Villa Antonio we have over 7000 vines growing in the vineyard, but we have focused the crop's breeding to produce only two strains of select Postup grapes. This specialization allows him to produce a vintage of unanimously judged excellence.
The surrounding coastline boasts a generous sprinkling of white sand beaches, from Villa Antonio to Orebic to Viganj (Croatia's top destination for professional windsurfing), to Loviste, a quiet fishing and farming town at the top of the Peljesac Peninsula. The Isle of Korcula can be reached by a quick hop across the channel on ferry or boat. A leisurely drive south through the countryside will be rewarded with a day of sightseeing and shopping in the marble-paved streets of Dubrovnik, the fairytale medieval city long regarded as the most beautiful settlement on earth.
