About Steve Lucas

British and married with 2 school kids now living near London. Enjoy travelling and outdoor activities. Accountant who has lived and worked worldwide (before kids!) and always wanted to own property away from the crowded wet UK close to enjoyable activities and attractions!

We fell in love with Montenegro in 2005/6, with its great coastal and mountain scenery, history and friendly people. We thought Zabljak/Durmitor had huge and unrealised potential with its high mountains, Black Lake plus many smaller lakes, breathtaking Tara Canyon only 20 minutes away, with rafting, skiing, walking and other outdoor activities. It still needs significant investment (spa’s, more/new ski lifts, etc) before the hordes will arrive, but there have been significant improvements already (excellent new road sections from coast to Zabljak finished, some new hotels, etc.). Meanwhile this area remains great for people who enjoy beautiful scenery and outdoor activities away from the crowds.

Steve Lucas purchased this chalet in 2006

Why Steve Lucas chose Zabljak / Durmitor

1. Great location: Easily accessible in summer and winter (next to regularly snowploughed road), with great mountain/rural views from the many windows and only 250 metres from the ski-lifts (handy in summer too!) and only about 3km from the Zabljak shops. Friendly neighbours including the caretaker family who look after it for us.

2. High Standard (now!): It is now much higher standard than most other chalets in the area since we’ve replaced all the insides except the floorboards!. It has: new roof; new insulation; new electrics; new double glazed windows; new wood panelling; new electrics and lights; new kitchen; new stairs/steps; renovated bathroom plus new bathroom & entranceway/front door; new electronics (flat screen TV, satellite, etc.); new wood burning stove/radiators; central heating; 3000L water tank; some new furniture; etc. Started renting recently to contribute towards the high bills!

What makes this chalet unique

Much better location and standard than most other chalets in the area: more spacious; great views from the many downstairs windows; accessible all year round; well equipped (flat screen TV, washing machine; etc.); great rural location near ski lifts yet only a few km from Zabljak shops and restaurants.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"we are back at home now. We liked much staying in your chalet. Although there have been some problems with electriciry in the village. Ratko was very friendly and took us some candles. Thank you. Next time we'll surely choose your chalet"

Owner comment: Caretakers always helpful. Also, unlike most chalets in area, this has an emergency generator which is used on the rare occasions when power is off more than 15 minutes or so, and wood burning stove pump has battery back-up. Steve

Fantastic location. Well functioning chalet.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for the use of your chalet.

We had a great trip and even the weather changed during the stay we found some very interesting moths and butterflies, birds and wildlife as well.

The chalet worked very fine for us, no problems at all.

And as the real estate brokers says: Its all about location, location and location. And your house has a fantastic location.

Within 30 minutes we were at mountain passes at 1900 meters, and within 30 minutes we were in the lowland valleys and river banks.

I hope to be able to return to this wonderful area.

Best regards

A relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this chalet. It is perfect to go to the Durmitor mountains. To peak Savin Kuk it is 1 1/2 hours and to Zabljak 30 minutes on foot or 5 Minutes by car. In the summer there's a cable car to get to the high mountains.

The chalet has plenty of space. It is fully equipped and situated in a quiet environment.

Thanks to the owner Steve. He answers all your questions promptly, if you contact him by mail.
