Hugh and Gail Chapman bought and restored Villa Maslina and loved the area so much they built another Villa so they could live in Montenegro all year. Moving here from Kenya we find it is such an easy going way of life and we are sure you will find it perfect for a holiday.
Gail Chapman: email@example.com purchased this villa in 2007
Estate agents say Position, Position, Position we say Views, Views, Views ! Everyone who stays is blown away by the scenery as the mountains of Lovcen National Park meet the blue Adriatic.
We designed and rebuilt Maslina so we are bound to be biased ! it sits in so much unspoilt landscape yet a main thing for us was that in 15 mins we can be in Town or the marina, or in only 5 mins on the beach chilling out or shopping in the local village. All the stone used in the rebuild is original and reclaimed from the site as the buildings were tumble down wrecks.
We have had visitors to Villa Maslina from all over the world for the past 5 seasons.
Quotes from our visitor book
Our second holiday on the fab Lustica Peninsular nothing betters this !
The kids could not be dragged out of the pool this Villa has everything you could possibly need for a great time
Hugh was very helpful with our various requests and it made a huge difference having him on hand ( but not in the way !!)
Although late in the year we had some great weather and walking in the Lovcen National Park this is a good country for all seasons and the views are terrific
We did not know what to expect and found it fantastic ! Try Astoria in Radovici for great food and it is all so cheap !!!
We have just returned from a fabulous stay in this villa. Gail and Hugh as the owners could not do enough for us both before and during our stay. The villa itself is a bit off grid and remote but once you get used to that and follow the advice to order taxis then everything becomes accessible. Would highly recommend heading into kotor but time it wisely in high season to avoid the traffic! If anyone is looking for a beautifully thought out villa that is equipped with everything you need, that is peaceful. . Then I would book here. Gail and Hugh have a wonderful approach to holiday rental which makes you feel at home.
This was our second visit to this villa and it never fails to disappoint, the accommodation is always very well presented and the private pool is an added bonus. There is so much to do in the surrounding area if you so wish, visiting the beaches, living the high life at Porto Montenegro, wandering round the old town in Kotor, a day on the beach at Sveti Stephan, scenic drives up to Lovcen the list goes on. Whilst it is easy to get around and eat out it does not feel too "touristy" and the Adriatic is a beautiful coastline with crystal clear waters. The owners of the property are happy to assist with any issue which may arise - we had a flat tyre - and we were pointed in the right direction of a reputable repair shop. Will certainly be visiting again soon.
Villa Maslina is a wonderful villa - very well equipped and perfect for a relaxing holiday. This was our first visit to Montenegro which is such a beautiful country - lying by the pool looking at the amazing views of the mountains - what a treat!
Gail and Hugh were very welcoming and helpful - giving us great advice on where to visit and good places to eat.
The house was lovely, well equipped and beautifully decorated. The garden, with the pool and games was ideal for relaxing and playing. The location had all the views you could wish for. It was 5* accommodation and I would recommend it to anyone. Montenegro is a lovely country to visit with plenty to please anyone. We will defiantly be going back. Thank you for a truly brilliant holiday. Gail and Hugh are very helpful, welcoming and lovely people.
We have been staying at Villa Maslina for a week and unfortunately we have to leave tomorrow. The villa is very clean and of exceptional quality with all amenities including free wifi access. Lovely pool and garden. Stupendous views of the surrounding area. Montenegro is the most beautiful country and we would highly recommend this villa.
Gail and Hugh, the owners were so nice and helpful and nothing was too much trouble.
Very peaceful and quiet but easy to get to the shops, beach etc and ideally suited for touring around southern Montenegro. We would recommend hiring a car.
We visited the national park and Lake Skada together with Tivat, Kotor
And other places. The beach down the road is very pretty and well sheltered. Water was so clean. We had some wonderful meals out and were very surprised how cheap it is. We found the local people extremely helpful and friendly even when we couldn't understand the language, although many have pretty good English.
We shall be so sorry to leave and will definitely return in the future.
We stayed for a week in Villa Maslina in mid October. There were 5 adults and 2 young children. We found the location was ideal for touring the south coast and it is stunning. My parents liked the guest house for a bit of peace from the children. The weather was warm and sunny and we had several days on Plavi beach which has fine sand and good for castle making ! The Villa is very well equipped and there is lots of everything you need. We ordered a birthday cake for one of the girls and it lasted us all week! Hugh was very helpful with directing us to local restaurants and they loved the children the waiters everywhere were very helpful. Kotor is a bit crowded on cruise ship days better to visit around 5 in the afternoon. Don't miss Rose and the Lustica Peninsular and a visit to the Olive Farm. We are planning to come back for our main holiday in 2015.
