Built around a sheltered fishing harbour, Pucisca on Brac has been famed for its stone quarries since Roman times. Here, this 15th-century stone building was carefully restored to create a discrete boutique hotel, which opened in summer 2019.

Out back, hidden from view, lies a lush walled garden, planted with roses, wisteria and lavender, hosting a restaurant on a series of secluded terraces. It’s a superb spot to start the day with a cooked-to-order breakfast, or to round off with a candlelit Dalmatian seafood supper.

There’s also a small outdoor pool and a mini-spa with Jacuzzi and Finnish sauna.

Surrounding area

The hotel is in the centre of Pucisca, an old-fashioned fishing village with cottages built from fine local limestone. It stands on edge of the seafront promenade, near the harbour. The main attraction here is the Stonemason’s School (open to the public for short tours in summer).

You’ll also find a modest choice of cafes and eateries, and several small pebble coves for bathing.
