|Minimum Stay||5 - 7 nights|
Set in an absolutely stunning location within walking distance of the Bay for swimming and Montenego's top restaurant of Stari Mlini.Located 10 mins drive or bus trip from the medieval Unesco World Heritage town of Kotor. Ljuta is still quiet and peaceful but a short trip to bars shops restaurants and nightclubs.The accommodation is a 3 story semi detached stone house completely rebuilt.There are many birds and tortoises in the surrounding countryside and behind the house is your own private mountain to climb.
The accommodation has 3 bedrooms sleeping 6 plus 2 cots .The top floor is a huge room with ensuite bathroom, couch arm chair,tv and dvd.There are stone terraces to the front and back of the house ideal for sunning, lazing and watching the stars at night and admiring the view. There is a shop at the bottom of the drive selling fresh local produce and a bus stop that will take you to Kotor or Perast or anywhere on the Bay. The house has all cooking facilities, bedding and towels.
In the nearby area of Tivat, just a 20 minute drive away is the stunning new port of Porto Montenegro.This new development on the Adriatic was built to moor the larger boats unable to berth in Monaco and is becoming a very up market addition to the area while still retaining the charm and tranquility of the Kotor Bay area. It is a beautiful location and has many new bars and shops a lot of which are from the trendy Notting Hill area of London.Porto Montenegro is beautifully designed and executed with stunning plantings and stylish buildings in keeping with the history of the area.You can take a stroll around the waterfront straight on to the old town of Tivat with its original restaurants still in place.
We bought this house as a ruin and rebuilt it over the following year. It was supposed to be an investment property to sell on but we fell in love with it and the rest is history as they say.
Jennifer Maxwell purchased this house in 2006
I am an Australian brought up on the Northern beaches of Sydney so am fairly used to beautiful locations.However Montenegro and our house just takes my breath away. The combination of the mountains the sea and the history makes me jump out of bed just to look out the window.Added bonus is no sharks in the water.
An added benefit of being at our place is the beautiful reataurant of Stari Mlini within walking distance which nearly made my sister cry with its charm and location. In Kotor in the summer there is always something going on. Tall ships in the Bay,Carnival and Fashion Shows in the town but its is still small and charming and safe. Now with Porto Montenegro over the hill there is an understated glamour if you feel in the mood.The people still have an old fashioned community about them.
The swimming is beautiful and safe..ideal for all ages.Ljuta is a more exclusive area and not overrun by tourists in the summer, just mainly local people.Stari Mlini restaurant nearby is similar to restaurants in Bali with streams full of fish set in beautiful gardens.
The House is a magical place and truly peaceful.From every room in the house the views are awe inspiring and you find yourself just staring out the window.Last visit I spotted a Hoopoe bird while sitting at the side window.
The local town of Kotor has lots going on in the summer from Carnival to the Boat Festival and visits by tall ships.There is always something of interest happening and people come from all over the world to visit the churches in the town.
Just a short drive to Perast is the stunning church of Our Lady of the Rocks it is a special tourist attraction and there are many boats to take you out to the island.
Lake Skadar is only an hours drive away for rare birds and beautiful views.
