Konavle is well known as Dubrovnik countryside, a region located at the southeast part of Croatia. This area of farms, vineyards and stone houses, welcome all the hosts who are search for local tradition or way of life. For sure, food, local cuisine and wine is the best and fastest way to understand local culture and immerse to local philosophy of life, pomalo (take it easy and enjoy any moment of your life, especially when you are accompanied with good people, food and wine).

Dalmatian food is different in type and form. Dalmatian prosciutto or smoked ham is traditional way people prepare meat in this area. It is special because it does not use additives and it takes about one year for it to dry. It goes well with Dalmatian cheese, olives and homemade Dalmatian wine. Dalmatian pasticada is another traditional meal that is usually prepared for important occasions like weddings. It is beef stew in thick and rich sauce with gnocchi. If you have time to spare, you should try meat baked under the baking lid – peka. It takes about two to three hours to prepare that meal and the result is slow cooked food – healthy and very delicious with lots of flavor. Dalmatian desserts are made with love from traditional reciepies. Dalmatian flan and fritters are delicious desserts to try.

Thanks to our Travel Advisor, Cate Caruso, we had the pleasure of working with an amazing team at Leonidas Travel Ltd. during our trip to Montenegro and Croatia in April/May 2018. Every personal driver, guide, and skipper was beyond friendly, knowledgeable, and very customer oriented. Throughout our stay we were well cared for - and we learned so much about the beautiful places we visited. The hand offs from one locale to the next were seamless - and recommendations were perfect. We highly recommend Leonidas Travel - and are so very thankful to Cate for partnering with such a wonderful and caring team of people!!

Leonidas Travel worked effortlessly with our travel agent to help plan the most incredible honeymoon for me and my husband. I knew very little about Croatia before we decided to honeymoon there and now I am telling everyone it should be on the shortlist of "places to visit" for everyone... and I think Leonidas is to thank in large part. They helped put together a itinerary full of unique and educational culinary experiences and awe inspiring excursions. Every person we came into contact through via Leonidas, from hotel staff to tour providers to transportation and everything in between. Our entire trip was well planned, executed and communicated. It made our experience extremely enjoyable and we always felt well taken care of

Travel review Leonidas

We had a terrific experience with Leonidas. They worked with us along with our Calgary travel agent and they were excellent. We had one hiccup on our trip and the team went over the top to have things sorted very very quickly and brilliantly. The service was excellent as were recommendations for tours, dining experiences and accomodations. Someone from the team is immediate to respond to emails or calls during the course of the vacation. Would use them again in an instant!!
