Location:

The village of Rose is at the tip of the beautiful Lustica Peninsula at the entrance to the outstanding Bay of Kotor the largest sea fjord in the Mediterranean. It is a historically protected village of old stone houses, many dating back centuries, and has long been favoured by artists as a summer residence. Originally a fishing village, the quay became important for the export of olive oil and Prsuta ham produced by the Peninsula’s farms. Staraposta was reconstructed in 2010 from an original quayside warehouse believed to date from the first millenium.

The village is pedestrianized and the villa is located directly on the quay some 250m from the village car park. It is the perfect place to relax and literally watch the world cruise by.

How to get there:

The closest airport is Tivat, just 20 km from the villa, which is served by Montenegro Airlines in the season from London Gatwick, Belgrade, Moscow and St Petersburg. Montenegro’s main airport, Podgorica, is served by Ryanair from London Stansted as well as Montenegro Airlines, Lot and is 55 km. Dubrovnik airport is 70 km and is served by Aer Lingus, Air France, Austrian Airlines, British Airways, Croatia Airlines, EasyJet, Flybe, Norwegian and Wizz. It takes under two hours to drive to Rose from Dubrovnik airport or under one hour by taxi to Herceg Novi pier and water taxi across to Rose. A hire car is recommended.

About the area:

There is always a cooling breeze in Rose and the sea is crystal clear. One can bathe from the quay just 5 metres from the villa’s terrace and within an 18 X 6m buoyed swimming area or from the village beach just 200 metres away. A local diving school offers scuba diving for all levels during the season with interesting dives including the Blue Grotto, Mamula Island at the entrance to the Bay and

three wrecks. Miki Begovic operates ‘Loro’ and ‘Rose’ the local water taxis and he will be pleased to take you to Herceg Novi or any of the many nearby coves.

There are pleasant country walks immediately behind the village to explore the Peninsula and its historic fortifications including disused submarine pens. For those seeking night life, the bars, restaurants and night clubs of Porto Montenegro and Kotor, a UNESCO Venetian walled city, is less than half an hour away by car.

Further Details:

For the more athletic, one can climb Kotor’s amazing city walls or take the incredible mountain road from Kotor to Cetinje, the old Royal capital of Montenegro and visit its extraordinary palaces. See also the Mausoleum of the patriot Njegos, perched on the very top of Mount Lovcen. Breathtaking views can be seen from the summit, where there is also an excellent restaurant.

The main Tivat/Budva coast road is 18km from Rose and takes you south along a magnificent coastline to the historic city of Budva, to Sveti Stefan and the charming small town of Petrovac, with their sandy beaches, rocky coves and islands, and on to Bar, the ferry port to Ancona, Bari and Corfu. Here one can visit the fascinating ruined city of Stari Bar (Old Bar) a few km from the modern port.

Most of all, do not fail to explore Kotor Bay with its historic towns and villages which cling to the edge of the fjord. Visit the beautiful town of Perast. From here one can take a short trip by boat to the island of Our Lady of the Rocks. Do enjoy the many restaurants with their local specialty of Prsuta (smoked ham) and fresh sea food.

memorable week at Stara Posta Rose

  • 5 of 5

6 friends from England (3 couples in their 60s!) had memorable holiday here. Stara Posta is beautifully restored and provides a comfortable base with everything we needed. Rose is enchanting and we did not see anywhere in our exploration of Montenegro that we would have preferred. 4 out of many highlights: 1) evening drinks on the first floor balcony enjoying the view over the water 2) early morning swims watching the sun rise over the mountains 3) driving the old mountain road to Cetinje and returning by the Budva coast road.4) A boat trip from Herceg Novi round the Kotor bay stopping at Perast and Kotor old town. We took the ferry to Herceg Novi to shop which was very easy. Lots of good fish restaurants too.
