About Laurence Baughan
I am from England and live in the New Forest. I have worked in over 30 different countries around the world but specialised in projects in Eastern Europe and Russia. I first became aware of the Adriatic coast line in 1997 when working in Bosnia and Croatia. Further projects in Kosova in 2005 led to many recommendations to visit Montenegro and in 2007 I visited and fell in love with the country. I had been told that if you love the Adriatic coastline you will be enchanted by Kotor Bay. This recommendation has proved completely true as even after 6 years I still find myself transfixed by the sheer scale and beauty of the biggest fjord in Europe with almost sheer cliffs dropping 3,000 feet into the sea.
Why Laurence Baughan chose Prčanj
Prcanj is a wonderful fishing village which is close enough to Porto Montenegro with its luxury yachts and modern apartments and very close to the World Heritage Site of Kotor. Perhaps the most striking part of the bay is the clarity of light across the bay highlighting the 1000 metre mountains. Also being fjord the waters are safe and very tranquil which makes the bay great for swimming.
What makes this Apartment unique
What makes this property different is the fact that it is a one-off. I renovated the whole house to a standard that I would be happy to live and holiday in. While there are many wonderful places to stay in Montenegro there are often apartments that are part of modern 6 or 8 apartment complex. These are fine but they are not unique. The apartment is in a house that has no development at either side of it although there are properties behind it. The road leads to a deep ravine and stops just at the front of the house so there is no through traffic. Very peaceful and relaxing.
Pool / Spa
Wonderful apartment with stunning views
We had a marvellous weekend stay here. The views over the bay from the bedroom were gorgeous, the apartment was beautiful, clean and well stocked, the surrounding areas, from the coast to the forest were stunning and the host was extremely helpful. Couldn't recommend this highly enough.
Quiet house, stunning views
We loved our stay here and the owners were very helpful on arrival though we'd recommend getting good directions to the actual meeting point as google takes you to the wrong place
The house itself was spotless and comfortable though it would be nice if the sitting area was a bit more cosy and had some curtains/more things on the walls especially for autumn or spring visits when cooler evenings mean you want to be inside.
The view over the lake is wonderful and lovely to have breakfast in the sunshine.
Fabulous apartment and stunning views
We were two couples in the three (double) bedroomed penthouse apartment. The apartment is over two floors with the large kitchen/sitting room on the top floor with a good sized balcony looking out over stunning views of the bay and mountains. The view during the day was beautiful but at night it was fabulous with the villages across the water being lit up and reflecting on the water. Sitting on the balcony for breakfast and cheese and wine in the evenings was a delight. The kitchen is very well equipped and the fridge was on when we arrived.
The bedrooms rooms are spacious and light - two of them share a very large balcony with sun loungers. The third room has a small balcony on the side of the property. There is everything you need in this property to make it homely and it's very well laid out. I wouldn't choose this property for young children, but having said that, I wouldn't choose the area at all with young children as there is a road to cross to get to the water's edge and no sandy beaches.
Laurence, the owner was very helpful and answered any questions we had prior to arrival. The two ladies we dealt with from the Property Management company spoke very good English and were also very helpful.
I would highly recommend this property and the area. A boat trip from The Old Town of Kotor to the island church is well worth the 15E and the Old Town is very similar to Dubrovnik but on a smaller scale. We hired a car and drove over the mountains to Porto Montenegro which is very impressive and eating in the harbour was very pleasant and not expensive.
This place is amazing
We were delighted with this apartment, the views are fantastic, just a short walk to local bar and restaurants, beautiful rural setting and just 10 min from Kotor centre.
A super holiday
We had a wonderful stay. A quiet peaceful location, great views of the mountains, clean and very well maintained. We experienced a good mix of quiet local Montenegro life coupled with the bustle of the Old Town, the Harbour, street market and bars a little further away. The scenery was breathtaking. Highly recommended.
It was a real pleasure. In August 2015 we are planning to stay in the same apartment once again.
Special interest holidays:
Walks/hiking: There are walks up the hills behind the apartment or more gentle walks around the bay. Pathways up the mountain start from various points but one from just before the Splendido hotel . Walking around the bay makes a beautiful day out. The Lovcen national park is approx 50 minutes away in the mountains above Kotor and has beautiful hiking trails. The park is signposted at a turn off on the Budva road just outside Kotor. The area is fabulous for cycling whether you want a smooth relaxed cycle along the bay or up in the more challenging routes through the Lovcen park.
Further out: The dramatic Durmitor National Park in northern Montenegro contains the most stunning mountain hiking scenery with the best maintained hiking routes.
Fishing: Many locals fish from the stone pontoons or in small local fishing boats.
The nearest bathing area is 3 minutes walk away. It consists of a small pebble beach and numerous pontoons to swim off. The beach has minimal wave action as the bay is a fjord rather like a lake. Swimming in the sea is possible from May to October unless you are made of tougher stuff when it is available all year round

Car rental from Tivat Airport has reduced in price in recent years and larger rental companies like Hertz or Sixt have opened branches. Dubrovnik airport also offer competitive car rental prices I can send you and further information on travel and directions. Kotor and Prcanj have a great history and culture. You will really feel that you have entered a magical world out of history when you pass through the old town walls of Kotor. There are plenty of ATM/ banks, tourist shops, large selection of restaurants, outdoor sports and local daily markets selling fish, meats, cheeses etc. Prcanj is a chic mini-resort in its own right and is a really lively though relaxed quality holiday area.
