Heritage Hotel Kaštelet is located in the small town of Tučepi, a coastal community in Croatia’s Central Dalmatian region along the Makarska Riviera. With the Biokovo mountain range, the second highest in the country, rising in the background and the cerulean-hued Adriatic Sea unfolding in front of it, Tučepi is a popular vacation destination for sun worshippers and outdoor enthusiasts alike. Just like the aristocratic estate-turned-boutique hotel, the area is also steeped in history, seeing everyone from an Illyrian tribe known as the Dalmatae to the Roman Empire call the region home. Given this abundant natural beauty and rich cultural heritage, travelers will find an array of activities to suit interests of all kinds, whether hiking trails, beaches, cathedrals, museums, or historical sites. Although Tučepi itself is quite modest in size, the town is convenient to neighboring communities like Podgora and Makarska, each less than a 10-minute drive away. Meanwhile, Split, Croatia’s second-largest city and the biggest in Dalmatia, is further afield yet easily accessible with a 90-minute or less car ride.

Driving Directions

Located around an hour and a half from Split Airport, Heritage Hotel Kaštelet can be reached by car, bus, or taxi ride. Alternatively, airport transfers with licensed drivers can be arranged (for a fee) through the hotel and are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for both individuals and groups. Pickups are offered at Split Airport, as well as airports in Zadar or Dubrovnik and other transport hubs like ferry ports, bus stops, and train stations.
