Overview

About the property

Apartment in Prcanj, Kotor, Southern Coastal, Montenegro - Peaceful Location, Stunning Views, Small Pool, 5 Mins Walk to Sea

Surrounded by woodland on three sides, a position uphill from the waterfront road gives a tranquil setting with fantastic views of the bay and the mountains beyond. Bought by the owners for personal use as well as to let, the apartment is tastefully fitted out with quality kitchen and modern furniture. It has tiled floors in kitchen area and bathroom, with oak floors throughout the remainder. Three air conditioners/heaters along with louvered shutters and double-glazing throughout ensure your comfort in all weathers. There is a small pool, shared between just six apartments. A 5 minute walk down the hill will take you to a mini-market, two good bars/restaurants on the waterfront, and a number of bathing jetties. From there it's a short walk to the Cafe Centar and Prcanj cathedral. A 15 minute drive or a cheap local bus or taxi will take you to the ancient walled and pedestrianised town of Kotor.

About Andrew and Rebecca

We live in Hampshire in southern England, and work as an IT Manager and a Nurse. When we first visited the Kotor Bay area of Montenegro we were bowled over by the country, the scenery, and the warm welcome we received. We went on to buy an apartment so that we could keep visiting, and we rent it out to help pay for the apartment and the maintenance. This is our only property apart from our main home in England, so we spent a lot of time choosing furniture and fittings which would make us pleased to be there every time we go.

Andrew and Rebecca purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Andrew and Rebecca chose Montenegro

Kotor Bay is an unusual and beautiful part of the Adriatic coast, being a Mediterranean version of a fjord. We like Prcanj as it is quieter on this side of the bay than on the Kotor / Dobrota side, while being easy to get to Kotor: 10-15 minutes by car, bus (every half hour; one euro) or taxi. It also has a few bars and restaurants of its own, and access to the numerous jetties for swimming, as well as some small beaches.

The location of the apartment within Prcanj is ideal for us, as it is uphill from the coast road and surrounded on three sides by woodland and field.

What makes this apartment unique

From the apartment you can walk up the lane and along a path through the woods to the old ruined church higher up the hillside, often hardly seeing another person. On a hot afternoon you can find shade on the terrace or take a dip in the pool. Inside, the new air-conditioning units are quiet and well able to cope with a hot Summer's day. The fridge-freezer is a good size, and you can dine indoors or out, depending on the weather. All the furniture and the kitchen equipment is stylish and in excellent condition. We love it, and our guests tell us they do, too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Just wanted to say thank you for letting us rent your apartment, we had a great time. The apartment was lovely, just as you had described and the views from the balcony were amazing!" - Emma and family, Herts, UK, Aug 2010



"I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our holiday in Montenegro. The apartment was great and the views stunning but I guess you know that already! We found plenty to do, usually ending each day with a dip in the pool." - Margaret and family, UK, Aug 2011



"Thanks for sorting out the car hire and airport pick up / drop off - it all went really well and we may well use it again next year if we come again (which is highly likely as we all had such a fantastic time again!!!). We found the apartment really well equipped and furnished. The air conditioning units in each of the bedrooms and main living area also meant that we were able to stay nice and cool and sleep really well." - Steve and Rachel Humphries, UK, August 2012

The apartment is beautiful with lovely furnishings, comfortable beds and exquisite views over the bay of Kotor. The best apartment we've stayed in abroad! Montenegro is very pretty and I'm sure we'll visit again sometime.

A Wonderful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is really great. It is well situated with marvellous views over the bay of Kotor. The apartment had everything we needed and the furnishings were of a very high standard. It is obvious that the owners have put a lot of thought and effort into trying to get things right. It's handy for restaurants and cafes, although you need to be prepared for the steep walk back from the village! We highly recommend this property, and our only regret was that we could not stay longer.
