Hotel of the week: Villa Orsula

Built in 1939 as a private mansion, this refurbished hotel has a view of Dubrovnik’s Old Town and the Adriatic Sea.

Dubrovnik, Croatia

We’ve found “the perfect place to sit and watch Dubrovnik’s Old Town come to life each morning,” said Adam McCulloch in Departures. Built in 1939 as a private mansion, this 11-room, two-suite hotel was thoroughly refurbished last year yet still has the look of a Venetian estate—“with cascading gardens leading down a cliff to the Adriatic Sea.” There’s “something utterly romantic” about waking up to such views in a contemporary room, then taking your coffee on the breakfast terrace. As you look down on Old Town, gnarled grapevines provide a soothing canopy.alh.hr; doubles start at $464
