We had a brilliant fortnight stay at the Villa, which is as beautiful as the photos suggest, particularly the downstairs eating area, pool and garden. The house is really well equipped and the bbq is the cleanest we have ever come across in a villa. We used it 3 times and Lillian (bless her) cleaned it every morning at the crack of dawn after watering the garden!!”). The scenery everywhere you look is stunning and the weather in August amazing. Great bars and restaurants within a short walk though several others a short drive away. We visited Kotor and did the boat trip (a must) and went to Tivat and Hercignovi for a different but equally enjoyable experience. Down sides were very few, but the journey from Dubrovnik was 3 hours due to queues at the border and be well prepared for the mozzies at the villa. Finally thanks to Vujadin for great communication and the incredible Lillian.
It was lovely to walk into such a cool villa after a long, hot drive. Lillian met us and explained all the details and the we jumped in the pool. The kids loved playing in the inflatables and jumping in off the diving board. The only way we could get them out was to tempt them with the bubbly jacuzzi bath. The villa had everything we needed and at the bottom of the slope (a 2 minute walk) was the local shop with most things you would need, plus a restaurant. The beach was a further 1 minute away and had some areas of shade and was never particularly crowded when we were there (unlike all the other beach areas we saw). We had several day trips out including Kotor, Perast, Skadar lake and national park and Lilian arranged for us to kayak in the bay. We used the outside grill downstairs by the pool and ate at the local restaurants.
I would recommend a smaller rather than larger hire car as the parking space requires some reversing down a slope and plenty of mosquito spray for evenings by the pool. We found Montenegro to be beautiful and much quieter, less busy and touristy than neighbouring Croatia and driving more pleasurable.
We landed at Tivat airport, collected the hire car and found our way seamlessly to within 10 yards of the Villa. That's where it all fell apart! No signs anywhere, no notices to say Villa Adriatic, no answer on Lillian's mobile or office phone. We knocked on doors but no-one knew it, or knew Lillian (not even the next door neighbour as it turned out). Eventually, Lillian did turn up and showed us to the villa which actually is set back, almost behind one of the houses. A few signs would have helped. Lillian tells us that she doesn't want signs but hey, she knows where she's going whereas we didn't..It was a very frustrating start to our holiday after a long day's travel.
That aside, everything else was superb. Lillian was, as has been said previously by many others, very very welcoming and very helpful, the villa was spotless and very well equipped: we very much appreciated the wine, and food in the fridge. The garden is beautiful, and so tranquil. We couldn't fault the villa for anything.
There are three restaurants in Morinje - one at the bottom of the lane where the villa is, one facing the end of the same lane, on the beach, and one about 10 mins stroll away. All were superb - we enjoyed them.
Would we return? probably not, but only because the world is so big and we want to explore it more.
Conclusion: superb villa, very good value, excellent host, great area. Only 4 stars from us because of the debacle on arrival.
We loved it here, its a beautiful villa with a great pool and lovely gardens its so relaxing. Morinj was a tiny village but 3 restaurants to choose from, a little shop for bread etc and just a couple of minutes walk to the beach. Really good base to explore Montenegro, we went rafting on the Tara river and to the primeval forest in the east. We were sad to leave and look forward to coming back. Lillian was lovely and we had really clear communication with Vujadin before we set off.
Very well kept villa - beautiful pool and gardens. Just a short walk to the coast and within 5-10 mins of three restaurants.
Very pretty area and fantastic views from the hills above the villa. Extremely warm greeting from Lilian and thank you for the welcome pack of goodies.
Very clean villa set in a quiet and very convenient location to explore the country. Everything is exactly as advertised and Lillian is a lovely and very welcoming owner. Both the villa and the garden are maintained to a very high standard.
