The Coastal Montenegro region

Montenegro is increasingly being rediscovered as the 'Pearl of the Adriatic', and Kotor spectacularly lives up to its Unesco World Heritage designation enticing its visitor back again and again. Seven islands decorate the bay, and enjoying the gorgeous views over a glass of wine is an absolute delight, whether in one of the many piazzas of the old town, or in one of the beautiful restaurants that surround the bay.

At the head of southern Europe's deepest fjord, Kotor's setting is a place of stunning and dramatic natural beauty. The fortified Stari Grad (Old Town) nestles at the foot of a high cliff and is one of the most exquisitely preserved medieval cities in Europe. Its labyrinthine streets are awash with colour and atmosphere, with countless bars, churches and restaurants on hidden piazzas. Mountains protect the whole bay and the sea is indigo blue.

Lord Byron wrote “At the birth of our planet, the most beautiful encounter between the land and the sea must have happened at the coast of Montenegro.” It still retains its unmatchable natural charm and beauty and the Bay of Kotor is indubitably the jewel in its crown.

Architecture dating back to the 12th Century is still prevalent among the many heritage towns and villages. Montenegro’s natural beauty is dramatic; mountains dropping down to mirrored water in the UNESCO-protected Kotor fjord and the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic lapping the sandy beaches of the coast. Drive into the mountains to find river canyons (one being the second deepest the world), glacial lakes, untouched nature and a growing ski and eco-tourism industry.

There are many small beaches within a 15 min drive on the Adriatic coast, and activities galore for the more energetic; white water rafting, canoeing, paragliding, mountain climbing, biking, sailing and trips in a Flying Inflatable boat are all available in the area.

Practical Information:

The Climate is similar to Southern Italy and Southern Spain, so can be enjoyed all year round. On the coast, the climate is simply idyllic. It can rise to over 90F degrees in high summer but always feels fresh and pure, and of course it’s delightfully cooler inland. Whilst the 'season' is considered to be May to Sept the cooler months of spring and autumn can have blissful weather. The currency is the Euro and Montenegro is widely expected to join the EU in the next few years

Kotor

Kotor is a historic city of traders and sailors, and its medieval architecture and cultural monuments have made it a Unesco listed 'World Natural and Historical Site'. Its narrow cobbled streets twist and turn, and constantly provide a hidden treasure to be discovered. Getting lost in this ancient maze is fantastic fun. Kids love it, sensing that they are somewhere truly special.

The Old Town is traffic free, and can be both peaceful and lively; enchanting and bustling by day with its array of cafes, restaurants and shops; romantic candlelight dinners by evening, and lively at night with many bars and great music. Regular carnivals and fiestas add to the charm of this beautiful, walled town.

Muo, on our doorstep, is a beautiful fishing village that runs along the fjord on a small narrow road looking out onto the water. There are a number of shops, bars and restaurants in the village with a lot of friendly faces around every corner.

Well worth the drive if you want to venture beyond Kotor is the magnificent Adriatic coastline starting from the Lustica Peninsula to Budva and beyond to Sveti Stefan, the choice resort for the rich and famous. Unmissable in our view are Perast, the unspoilt Venetian town overlooking the picturesque monastery of Gospa od Škrpjela (Our Lady of the Rock), set on its own island; Cetinje, the historic capital of Monenegro; while Budva, the racier, vibrant resort right on the beach, is also a short hop away. There are so many glorious villages and towns to visit, all within less than an hour’s drive.

If you prefer to stay local, you could stroll along the waterfront and admire the yachts, take a boat trip or enjoy the many watersports on offer. Or, just find yourself a quiet jetty and soak up the sun ! There are now three good guide books on the region – Lonely Planet Montenegro Travel Guide; The Rough Guide to Montenegro; Montenego - the Bradt Travel Guide; and Montenegro in Your Hands

Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

My wife and family stayed here for a week in June. The apartment has incredible views across Kotor bay and is a 15 minute walk from Kotor town. We had a fantastic holiday ..... we travelled to the local beaches, walked kotor walls, drove to cijenje along the encredible windly road with amazing views .....went to perast and sveti Stefan. A great holiday. The apartment was a great base to explore the country and near everything. I swam every morning in the bay across the road. The views from the balcony during the day and at night were incredible .....fantatic to have a glass of wine and watch the boats glide by. Overall a great place to visit and a great apartment. Will come again.

Amazing views, great location, basic holiday cottage

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is a top floor unit that has gorgeous views overlooking the bay and Kotor town. The view of the town wall lit up at night is just spectacular! The balcony is quite small but this allows for virtually unobstructed views from the lounge. The main bedroom has the same views but a nice privacy wall on the balcony so that you can leave the curtains open all the time. There is a lovely big dock just across the small road that belongs to the complex which looks like it could be fun in the summer months. We visited in early May and it was still too cold to swim but great for hiking.

Our only issue was having to hear the neighbour's poor, chained-up dog howl forlornly a few times a day, which is not the owner of the apartment's fault, but just spoils the happy holiday mood.

The beds were comfortable and the apartment was clean.

It would've been nice to have a larger coffee maker, a roasting pan for the oven and a blender for smoothies/cocktails :-)

Note that there is no Wifi, TV or Washing machine in the apartment, like some of the other similarly priced apartments listed in the area.

All in all, this apartment felt very much like a "basic holiday cottage" rather than a "home away from home".

Vue magnifique et appartement spacieux

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement est situé à 1.3 km de la ville de Kotor, il est spacieux et offre un bon confort. J'aurais juste préféré une douche à la place de la baignoire et la possibilité d'avoir une machine à laver le linge sur place .

Pour ce qui du reste l'équipement de la cuisine est assez complet (théière, machine à café filtre) Les personnes sur place sont très accueillantes . Je recommande cet hébergement ))
