Eraci is a beautiful villa designed in traditional Mediterranean style to blend with the other houses in the tiny, picturesque hillside village in which it sits.
The interior design is definitely contemporary - with open plan living spaces, large windows and creative design features. All 5 bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and 2 have their own terrace.
A beautiful circular staircase within a hexagonal tower links the 1st and 2nd floors.
The pool area was planned specifically to preserve ancient olive trees which help to afford shade to the extensive sun terraces. The spacious 1st floor terrace provides a perfect 'al fresco' dining area, with a gas BBQ.
The area around Eraci is largely undiscovered, and spectacularly beautiful – reminiscent of Tuscany – yet there are two attractive beaches within 7 mins drive, with adjacent restaurants and bars, and nearby Rose is undoubtedly the prettiest fishing village in Montenegro.
I am English (born and bred in Bristol) but have lived outside of the UK since 1999. I am currently based in Cambodia, where I own a restaurant - but previously lived for 8 years (from 2002 to 2010) in the former Yugoslavia - firstly in Belgrade and then in Montenegro. I still spend as much time as I can in Montenegro (at least a few weeks a year) and eventually would like to retire there. I have owned property in Montenegro since 2004 - having fallen in love with the country, while it was still part of Serbia and Montenegro. I bought this and my other property in Zabrdje (Owners Direct Ref. MN560), also on the Lustica peninsula, in 2007.
Roger Britton purchased this villa in 2007
For me, buying on Lustica was one of the easiest decisions I have ever made - as it is, in my opinion, the most beautiful part of the Montenegrin coastline. Still largely undiscovered and spectacularly beautiful, reminiscent of Tuscany – Lustica is starting to enjoy more popularity with travellers looking for something different and in addition several large and impressive developments are either already underway or are soon to start. These include the Lustica Bay development, well underway on the other side of the peninsula and 2 other multi-million Euro projects ready to go. However, the peninsula still remains one of the most peaceful and unspoiled locations in Montenegro.
This is without doubt one of the most spectacular villas on Lustica (in the opinion of a local Estate Agent friend of mine it is THE best on the peninsula). Beautifully designed in 'Tuscan' style, with a huge and stunning looking swimming pool, separate child’s pool and fantastic views over Mamula Island and the open sea. When I stay there - I honestly never want to leave!

We spent 2 weeks this summer at Eraci and had a great time. The villa is new and equipped with every mod con anyone could possibly want. The pool is really fantastic and the terrace gives a beautiful view over the Adriatic. The area immediately around the house is very unspoiled and peaceful. Jeremy, UK.
We all enjoyed our stay in Eraci. The villa was wonderful and had absolutely everything a family with older children required. I loved the sea views. Mary, UK.
I cannot tell you how much we enjoyed our two weeks at Eraci. It definitely lived up to our expectations and more. Georgina. UK.
We would like to thank you for our wonderful holidays in Montenegro. One day we would love to return to your beautiful villa and to enjoy again fantastic time there. Irina, Russia.
We had a fantastic holiday in Montenegro staying at villa Eraci. The villa is lovely and very well equipped and the pool is lovely and big. Our local contact was really helpful and helped us to organise things locally, he couldn't do enough to help us. The villa is beautifully remote so be prepared for the drive up the mountain. It isnt that far but is quite long and slow!
This is a spacious, highly comfortable and well-equipped villa in the spectactular Montenegran countryside.
The villa is very large (we were 9, but it could very comfortably accommodate more), with a great pool, several terraces, bbq and beautiful views. It is very family friendly and perfect for a large group.
We were met by the local agent who was available for any help and questions through the week.
The surrounding area is very beautiful with several charming local towns and villages, beautiful beaches plus boat trips and other points of interest.
Be aware the whole peninsula is very remote and the drive to the villa, although perfectly manageable in an ordinary car, is challenging and slow.
Highly recommended as a secluded getaway.
After travelling around Montenegro (which is a must) and its outstanding beauty we stayed for a week in this beautiful villa. The decoration and equipment available was well above average. The pool delightful and the views… stunning! Go… and enjoy this wonderful part of the Med.
Very great villa, great services. The pool is fantastic.
We also had the direct number of a local person that is available every day to provide advice about what we wanted to do. This was very helpful and nice.
Two beaches, one pebbled, one with purpose built concrete platforms 7 minutes drive from the villa. Both have restaurants and bars adjacent. Sophisticated beach resort of Oblatno and beautiful fishing village of Rose both within 10 minutes drive. Views from the villa include the fortified Island of Mamula and the Prevlaka Peninsula, shared with Croatia. Magnificent views over Boka Bay, including the new Marina at Tivat (largest in the Adriatic) a short drive away further round the peninsula.
Tivat Airport is 25 minutes drive from the villa. Dubrovnik Airport (Croatia) and the Airport of the Montenegrin capital, Podgorica, both 90-120 minutes drive. Use of car essential. Car hire available at all Airports.
By car - Tivat is 25 minutes, Kotor 25 minutes, Budva 40 minutes, Herceg Novi 60 minutes, Dubrovnik 1¾ hour. Beautiful walks from the house and short drives away including churches, monasteries and ancient fortifications.
From the nearby beaches of Miristar and Zanjice, catch a water taxi to Herceg Novi, Tivat, the famous Blue Cave or secluded Dobrec, only reachable by boat. Dobrec is one of two beaches on the Lustica peninsula (out of a total of six in Montenegro) which have been awarded the Blue Pennant by the WTO (the other being Plavi Horizonti, further round the peninsula) - and it also boasts an amazing seafood restaurant. There are 3 excellent restaurants and a scuba diving school at nearby Rose. The popular resort of Krasici is only 10 minutes drive away, where there is a pizzeria, a great local restaurant and several shops. A few minutes further along the peninsula at Kertoli are 3 top quality fish restaurants.
At Tivat, the new marina is the largest and most stunningly located in the Adriatic and a 5 star hotel is due to open there in 2014. Tivat itself has a range of restaurants, bars and cafes. The beautiful old walled town of Kotor (likened to a smaller version of Dubrovnik) features a myriad of cobbled streets and small squares on which can be found a range of restaurants, bars and shops – plus the trendy Maximus Club, one of the coolest on the Med.
Then there is Budva – playground for the ‘beautiful people’ which again has a range of bars, restaurants and clubs – including the new Miracle Lounge which features an impressive program of live music – including well known international bands and DJs - all through the summer.
Montenegro boasts a whole range of amazing tourist attractions, such as the Lovcen National Park, Lake Skadar with its huge range of wildlife, the Ancient capital of Cetinje, the famous island haunt of the rich and famous – Sveti Stefan and the Old Venetian Port of Perast with its picture postcard islands just off shore. From Kotor, Perast or Tivat – take a boat trip round stunning Boka Bay. And if you want to venture across the border - visit the jewel in Croatia’s tourist crown – Dubrovnik.
