Just an hour by ferry from the mainland town of Split, the island of Brač is popular with tourists, but few folks go farther than the bustling seaside town of Bol. A drive through rolling hillsides of olive trees and vineyards leads you to Pučišća, a sleepy seaside village most famous for producing the stone used in the White House. It's also home to the Dešković Palace, a renovated Renaissance palace built in 1467. Run by an heiress and artist named Rožića, who teaches painting in her on-premises studio, the hotel has a cheery and low-key atmosphere and is often filled with return guests who happened onto the property sometime in yesteryear. All of the 15 rooms have high ceilings, wood floors, and one-of-a-kind furniture that one suspects may be hundreds of years old. You'll be drawn to Pučišća for the sleepy feel of a real fishing village, but you just might stay on for the hotel restaurant's tagliatelle with truffle cream sauce. It's nearly as divine as the Saint Jerome church, right next door.

Closed December and January.
