Destination guide

Amazing Montenegro

It might be small, but Montenegro packs a hefty punch. This is a land of glimmering limestone peaks, of cerulean Adriatic waves that slosh against carved fjords. It's a breath-taker, a gasp-inducer. You can pick Montenegro vacation rentals that spill onto the pebbly coves of Kotor Bay or highland cabins that stud pine-forested peaks. Mystical cathedrals wreathed in tales of Byzantine empires and Ottoman Turks all make an appearance. Cobbled towns topped with castles are on the menu. And there's wine and food to die for.

Things to do

Don't miss Montenegro's Kotor

If you had to pick 1 truly bucket-list-worthy spot in Montenegro, it would surely be the Bay of Kotor. It's a bona fide wonder of Europe, carving inland between peaks with its beautiful and glimmering waters. Deep within is the town of Kotor itself. It's like a living museum, home to a rabbit warren of streets in the Old Town, where cobbled lanes open onto cafe-dotted piazzas. Head there to delve into the beautifully Baroque Maritime Museum and learn all about the seafaring feats of the locals. A glimpse of the Cathedral of Saint Tryphon is a must – it's considered one of the Med's most handsome churches.

Activities

Montenegro – a Mediterranean playground

Montenegro is a playground for lovers of the Med. Book yourself a Montenegro vacation rental in Budva or Kotor and you'll wake to the sound of the lapping Adriatic Sea. Boating outings mean finding empty pebble coves to call your own for the day. Local taverns mean uber-fresh seafood grilled on a BBQ. A host of excellent beaches means there's always time for a sunbathing session or a snorkel before lunch. Then come the mountains, soaring with lookouts, castles clutching to the rocks and hiking routes aplenty.

Weather

Montenegro's unmissable summers

Montenegro's riviera is the place to be in the summer months, between June and August. Everyone from jet-setters to yachties to sun-seekers flocks to the pebble coves and bubbling bars that range from Kotor to Budva – it's when Montenegro vacation rentals are at their most popular, for sure. That said, you could be in for hot weather and plenty of rays in fall, this far south in Europe, which makes September and October an option, too. Winter, running between December and March, heralds the rise of the ski resorts in the mountains.

Natural features

Montenegro is mountains and seas and more

Montenegro has it all, from soaring alpine mountains clad in pine forests and dressed in snow come winter, to shimmering Mediterranean beaches of blinding-white pebbles. Untouched wildernesses pop up with the primeval woods of Biogradska Gora, where old-growth woods straddle highlands and lakes. The Durmitor National Park is home to carved canyons that clock up some of the highest cliffs in Europe. The Lake Skadar National Park has the largest lake on the Balkan Peninsula. The coast, meanwhile, sees Montenegro vacation rentals pepper postcard-worthy sands and islands, all spilling down to a sky-blue Adriatic Sea.
