We’ve been in love with the Lesic Dimitri Palace Hotel since we stumbled across it last year. Located in the Croatian medieval town of Kor?ula next door to the house of Marco Polo and only a stone’s throw from the crystal clear Adriatic Sea the hotel blends in well with its surrounds.

hotel occupies an 18th century bishop’s palace and five medieval cottages. There are six suites in total some of which have kitchens, living rooms, balconies and patios. The biggest has four bedrooms, which would be a great place for a hen weekend. The property also features a spa, wine bar and restaurant.

The hotel only opened in 2009 and like its destination it is becoming increasingly popular with the jet setting crowd. We suggest you visit soon, before the secret gets out!

Room rates start from €195 per night
