Kotor House Rental Photos and Description

Large stone 3 (ensuite) bedroom house ( sleeps 8) with spacious and comfortable interiors and terraces and beside 3 lovely beaches

Enjoy the unique atmosphere of a bright and spacious, welcoming home with two double en-suite bedrooms and twin room; two large reception rooms & studio. Lustica House retains an original olive mill as part of a dramatic stone kitchen and 2 large terraces. Visitors to the Lustica will be impressed by sparkling clean sea and beaches, and impressive views at the sea entrance to Boka-Kotorski fjord (fort-island of Mamulla). Enjoy the tranquil countryside and traditional way of life of the old stone villages– once dominated by olive and small scale agriculture and old Roman salt mines, turned bird sanctuary today. Laid out on three levels, the tastefully Nepalese decorated summer home has a bright (south-west facing) aspect and spacious interiors. Guests can enjoy the best of both worlds with beaches and peaceful countryside at your doorstep, while busier and historic centres of Budva, Kotor and the new marina (Porto Montenegro) are a short drive (Kotor, Tivat 35 min. Budva 45 min).

About jas

Jas Kaminski, is the proud owner of the Lustica Mill House on the Peninsula of Lustica. He acquired the house in 2005 while working in tourism in Croatia, Montenegro, and Bosnia between 2000 and 2006. For someone who was familiar with the Eastern Adriatic coast, I was pleasantly surprised to stumble on an area that had not been taken over by large scale tourism on Lustica, while, at the same time, located directly behind the airport at Tivat, and a 1h 30m drive to Dubrovnik. Two years later, the house was fully renovated with the help of Tivat based architects, Axum Architects, combining sensitive restoration with modern facilities. The house was tastefully decorated using genuine furnishings and bright materials from Nepal, in Asia, where I was living and working at the time.

What makes this house unique

Peaceful, small stone village and a sense of meaningful interaction with local people.

Beautiful and untouched peninsula surrounded by small beaches, with restaurants and cafes, and a series of 9 old stone villages that have a series of old stone churches

The closest beaches are sheltered and located on the open sea, so the water is cleaner better

Access to Herzeg Novi, 10 mins by boat from fishing village of Rose

30 mins to Kotor & inner fjord, Tivat and 45 to budva or 1h 30 mins to Lovcen and the old capital of Cetinje- so day trips are convenient

Local food wine and olive oil available from locals at good prices, and supermarkets within in 10 mins, 30 mins and 35 mins of village- apart from a van that calls every morning with fruit, veg and basics.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really have enjoyed this villa and surrounding area. We have explored, swam at the beach, visited Ostrog Monastery (recommended) and the Beautiful church at Piva. We have also enjoyed the company of Rosa and Luca (neighbours). The terrace is lovely to sit and have an evening drink and the last night had dinner on…Thank you!

Lots of love

'We enjoyed the house - the place is done up so well and being there feels like you are part of a community and not just a tourist. It was absolutely stunning. The neighbours were so welcoming and it was a great start to the day to be invited for the Turkish coffee and Pelinkovac and Rakia.' Aimee, Ireland.



We had a wonderfully peaceful family holiday here in July 2010. The Lustica Mill House has been renovated to a very high standard and unlike some holiday villas that claim good quality and fail to meet expectations, we were very happy with the condition of the house. Everything worked includ

Distances:

Lustica Peninsula is famous for a once thriving olive industry as well as being part of entrance to the historic Boka - Kotor fjord. While made up of rolling hills the area has churches and small villages worth a visit. Bokar-Kotor fjord is Europe's most southerly fjord and is an impressive geographic and historic area. There's many towns around the fjord including Kotor (35 min) Perast and Risan (1hour). The walled coastal town of Budva is 50 mins, island hotel of Sveti Stefan is 1 hour 10 min.

Further Details:

Small shops and market are available on the beach (5 mins by car). While more extensive shopping available at the local supermarkets in Radovici (15 mins). Two large large supermarkets are situated on the major crossroads (25 mins) to Tivat and Kotor (35 mins) and Budva (45 mins). Fresh food and fish open air markets are situated in Tivat, Kotor and Budva. A local van calls twice a daily to deliver staples, like fresh, fruit, vegetables and dairy products. Beyond the coast and driving directly above the towns of Kotor and Budva, there are numerous mountain towns and cities worth visiting. High above Kotor and following hairpin bends, brings you to the national shrine and Njegos's Mausoleum at Lovcen. This is a very enjoyable drive with spectacular views and proximity to the mountain top is fairly straight forward with a road head close to the top. You can also take the main road from Budva to the former Royal capital Cetinje. Cetinje is pleasant drive about 2.5 hours into the mountainous interior of Montenegro. You can also use this road to get to Lovcen, Cetinje is a town of immense historical heritage, founded in the 15th century. It became the center of Montenegrin life and both a cradle of Montenegrin/Serbian culture and an Eastern Orthodox religious center. It is because of this and the heroic legend born after its eternal resistance from Ottoman intrusions, that it was nicknamed Serbian Sparta 1. It is because of its heritage as a long-term Montenegrin capital that it is today the honorary capital of Montenegro. Dubrovnik is 2 hours away and a must visit.
