Guest Feedback: The villa is outstanding - what an incredible job you have done, such a beautiful spot. We loved Bigova - such a gorgeous bay and quite untouched by tourists, both the restaurants were very good. Montenegro is a gorgeous country and a great size for exploring, we would definately go back and will be recommending Vila Nada to all our friends and family. June 07. J Eagles-Scotland.

The villa is spectacular and easily accomodated our party (8 adults). The utensils and provisions made for easy stay for those days we decided to stay in, do our own cooking and enjoy the villa & pool. As landlords we must say that you were excellent, our group has rented superb properties in various parts of Europe over the last several years and you were the best to deal with. In short we would highly recommend Vila Nada as a vacation rental and Debbie & Gerran as reliable and conscientous property renters. July 07. D Peterson-Canada

More Guest Feedback: A fantastic location for a scorching fortnight (upto 40oC). July 07. E Dunwell, UK

Vila Nada is beautiful and in a fantastic location, view is just spectacular, we've had a lovely 2 weeks. August 07. A Dorning-UK

We have had a wonderful week. The villa lives upto its description and we have all been very confortable. The kids really enjoyed the pool and our favorite restaurant in Montenegro was Grispolis in Bigova. We had a fantastic boat trip with a little boat and driver all to ourselves for the day and went all the way up the fiord to Persast - stopping frequently for swimming & snorkelling, Aug 07.

About Debbie Medlin

In 2006 I did something really mad and purchased a part built (shell) intended to be 6 small apartments in a relatively unknown country. With determination, hard work and a great team, 1 year later my dream was realised when Vila Nada was complete. I am a single mum of 2 boys (9 & 11) who have been lucky enough to enjoy Montenegro since they were 2 & 4 - in the early days the shell of the swimming pool acted as a great play pen when I had to be onsite! I work from home managing the rental of holiday homes for busy owners - it's a great job that evolved from my experience with Vila Nada.

Debbie Medlin purchased this villa in 2006

Why Debbie Medlin chose Montenegro

I chose the location of Bigova for it's fantastic views, beautiful sunsets and long hours of sunlight. It is also a favourite of many Montenegrins and as soon as I visited in 2005 I could see why. My problem was that availability of villas in this brilliant location was next to none - then along came to opportunity to purchase a brick shell intended be 6 small apartments - not exactly what I had planned but luckily I had enough imagination to visualise the finished product and enough bottle to take the risk. So there I was.........with a reasonably blank canvas to create my own Villa - I drew the plans, designed the interior and exterior (including the rather unusual swimming pool) ,sourced and purchased all the furniture, fixtures, fittings and accessories and oversaw the whole project. Vila Nada really is my home from home - my boys and I love the magic it holds.

What makes this villa unique

Vila Nada is unique quite simply because it is my very own creation. The views are out of this world and there is a magical, tranquil feeling about the place. It is light, airy and open and designed to be very sociable both on the inside and outside. The swimming pool is one of a kind with a top shallow pool - ideal for younger children........and as I discovered for sunbathing on a plastic lounger with the water lapping round your sides!! Whilst the bottom pool is deeper and perfect for a refreshing plunge or swim.

Villa Nada

  • 5 of 5

We had a fab holiday at the villa, which is beautifully decorated with all mod cons! We were 3 families each with 2 children and the villa was certainly big enough for us all to have plenty of space. It is extremely well equipped with everything necessary in the kitchen as well. Everything is clean and new! We BBQed on several evenings and watched the sun go down over the bay. The views are spectacular. The village is a short walk down the hill and the 2 restaurants there were lovely. The children were able to play on the waterfront whilst we had a leisurely meal. The water in Bigova Bay is delightful - beautifully clear and a lovely temperature. We all swam across the bay to the other side. We took a trip on a 40 ft ketch around Kotor Bay which is a must if you really want to see the spectacular coastline (details at the villa). Debbie was always on the end of the phone to answer any queries we had initially. We will definitely return!

Owner's Response: Reading this review just brings back such wonderful images of my villa - it's a great place for families with children and all adult parties too. I have enjoyed some very special times with my family and am delighted to be able to share it with others. Vila Nada is very personal to me and was the realisation of my dream - I was involved in its evolution right from designing the building layout to hand selecting the furnishings and went to great lengths to ensure it catered for every possible need , so I feel immensely proud to receive such a great review. Coming from a customer service background It is extremely important to me that people staying at the villa have a great holiday and as such have always ensured they are able to contact me at all times, I have established a great network of people in the country and am able to suggest places to go and things to do & see which enable people to gain the most from their holiday. Montenegro is a fantastic county with raw natural beauty, I loved it from the very first moment I ever set foot on it and get very enthusiastic about sharing it with potential clients.

Wonderful Holiday

  • 4 of 5

Its is a wonderful well equipped villa with amazing views within in easy walking distance of the harbour.

The children spent many a happy hour playing in the lovely pool as did the adults! It would have been nice to have a little more shade by the pool.

Bigova is a lovely little harbour village with one well stocked shop and two restaurants. We spent most nights in Pod Volat where we enjoyed some amazing food and the hospitality of the staff and owner was first class.

Thank you to Debbie for all your help with the booking and the recommendation for the sailing trip we did which was fantastic.

Very nice summer house in a quiet village

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Montenegro and we can certainly say that we had a great time at Villa Nada. Bigova is a a beautiful small town, perfectly located to explore both the Kotor bay and the Adriatic coast. Debbie did great in finding such a nice spot. The view from the terraces is breathtaking and the house is very comfortable and spacious and can easily accomodate 2/3 families sharing the place. Debbie was very kind and promptly responded to all our requests. Edward the local agent managing the property was also extremely helpful during all our staying

Overall I highly recommend this property if you decide to spend your holidays in Montenegro

What a Wonderful Place!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place ! We enjoyed every second , the view, the pool, the nice furniture , everything was good ! We were three families (14 people in total) from Sweden and had god enaugh space in the house. We ate a few dinners at home and a few at the amazing resturante in the village "grispolis " Pretty close to the shops but a car was needed.

It was easy to work with Debbie , the information we received was relevant.

We would love to go there again and can warmly recommend the house, the little village and Montenegro.

Best regards Hanna

Fantastic Villa with great view and pool

  • 5 of 5

We were 3 families (6 adults and 6 kids aged 5-11) and we stayed 5 nights in Vila Nada. We all enjoyed our stay a lot and rooms were just perfect for our group. House was well equipped and clean. We had rental cars and made daytrips around bay of Kotor. Such a beautiful place!

Fabulous villa in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 14 nights this summer at Villa Nada. The Villa was perfect for our party - 2 families with 5 children (10-14) in total. The facilities were fabulous, we'd have just liked a bit more shade around the pool as its was so hot. The air conditioning was a brilliant bonus and no WIFI was a great way to really get away from it all. Bigova is a very peaceful spot, with a great village shop and 2 nice restaurants. The bay is a great place for swimming and is so much quieter than many of the bigger local beaches.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review, having 2 children of my own I wanted to make sure Vila Nada was well equipped for families. I'm glad you enjoyed Bigova, it is one of my favourite places in Montenegro, peaceful yet with enough to have some atmosphere and only a short drive from the busier towns of Tivat and Kotor, the best of s both worlds :). For the WIFI addict the local restaurant does have free WIFI and is it something the villa will have next season - hope this doesn't spoil it's peace and tranquillity :)

Vila Nada is situated in the beautiful bay of Bigova, a small fishing village some 20/30 minutes drive from Kotor old town and 20/25 minutes from Tivat, the villa faces out over the bay in a south-westerly direction – giving you all day sun and a beautiful sunset into the sea each evening.

Bigova is fast becoming one of the most sought after destinations in Montenegro for its quaint un-spoilt characteristics. The village has its own very small pebble beach, shops and a number of restaurants & cafes. Plavi Horizonte (Blue Horizons), a beautiful sandy beach with restaurants & facilities which has been awarded the prestigious 'Blue Flag award' is only a 20/30 minute drive away.

Dubrovnik Airport is approx 1.5 hours drive and is currently the most accessible airport. There are a limited number of flights into Tivat Airport which is approx 20 minutes drive.

This villa has undergone complete refurbishment inside and outside to include brand new kitchens, bathrooms and a new double infinity edged pool with gated access. This was completed in May 2007. Please note: As with many villages in Montenegro the roads in Bigova are narrow and unmade in places, there is a narrow access point at the entrance of the village measuring 2.4m wide. Vila Nada is in an elevated position (hence the superb views) and is accessed via an unmade road with one steep incline. We have accessed the villa in vehicles ranging from a small saloon car to a long wheel based transit. For car hire from Dubrovnik Airport we have negotiated special rates with peugeot-rentacar, ask us for details. When enquiring mention that you will be staying at Vila Nada in Bigova, Montenegro.
