We are delighted to announce yet another reason to choose Palma Gora for your holiday. Our lovely neighbour Elaine is a professional chef with an excellent pedigree. She worked as a chef on private super yachts for eleven years, owned a Thai restaurant in Mexico and has cooked in many exotic locations. Having sailed into Boka Bay one day she was so overwhelmed by the natural beauty that she decided to settle here in Montenegro. We are of course delighted that she chose to buy a part of the farmhouse next to us.
Elaine can offer cookery courses based in Palma Gora, or she can shop, prepare and present meals for you if you have had a tiring day out or simply want to treat yourselves. Look at her website www.cooksofkotor.com to see the range of services on offer.

We love Montenegro, both its physical beauty and the warmth and hospitality of its people. We have invested a lot of time and effort to ensuring Palmagora fits in with the locality. We built in stone, and have tried to continue the natural theme on the inside. The kitchens are wood, with granite work tops, the floors are tiled and we have used natural materials wherever possible. We have tried to combine the old with the new, in terms of modern cookers, fridge/freezers, air-con, without detracting from the local beauty. We have done everything we can to help you enjoy your stay with us.
Owner purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Owner chose Mrčevac
If you want a peaceful location in a beautiful situation but to be within a short drive of Tivat and Kotor then this is the place for you.Tivat is the home of the super yacht marina Porto Montenegro, whilst Kotor is a UNESCO world heritage site walled town. Both have a wide variety of bars and restaurants. Kotor hosts a variety of festivals over the year including music and dance, all worth a visit. There are a wealth of activities in the area- walking, sailing, cycling, fishing, sightseeing or just relaxing on the beach. The new water park opened near Budva is a great place for the whole family. All apartments have their own private balcony or terrace if you want privacy, or you can sit on the communal terrace overlooking the pool, chatting to other guests. We have installed cable tv and internet in each apartment if you want to keep in touch from your country idyll.

Ok if not many other people there. Would be good for big family
We had a good time, the accomadation is fine, but the air -con was awful
We were very hot and found it hard to sleep at night. Also there was no store cupboard essentials, eg. Salt, pepper etc.
The area as a whole is beautiful but be prepared to see a lot of rubbish tipped where ever. Recycling is non existent.
Vesna was a good help and very efficient.
Thank you for your review.
We are very pleased that you found the area beautiful and Vesna was as helpful as ever
However please rest assured that we are investigating why the combination of air conditioning and fans in the bedroom were not operating as effectively as normally during your stay.
As regards the recycling, there are some recycling bins further down the hill but they are not as plentiful as in some other countries. However I trust that you agree that this is not a problem around our apartments as there are small numbers of people compared to more densely populated areas.
We will consider your point about store cupboard items, thanks for the suggestion. We do of course provide initial bathroom items such a s soap, shampoo etc
Beautiful views from a lovely property
Palma Gora offers beautiful views down towards Tivat, and you are surrounded by lush hills dotted with churches and farmhouses.
We stayed in the Valley apartment, which has a large, private terrace at the back, from which you can gaze over the valley (and spend your evening listening to distant farmers and hunters in the hills).
The apartement was spacious, comfortable and extremely well equipped, including a washing machine, dishwasher and satellite TV.
Bogdasici is conveniently located just up the hill from the outskirts of Tivat. If you like hiking, there are trails that lead away from right outside the villa, and others very nearby. There are shops (including several supermarkets) a short drive away. And we'd highly recommend the grill at the bottom of the hill behind the kiosk and shop (but that's between you and me so that we can keep it as a hidden gem).
Tivat itself is a nice place to spend time. There are public (pebbly) beaches, a lovely waterfront, and the glamorous Porto Montenegro with its superyachts and fine restaurants. You are, of course, ideally located for all the stunning sights of the Boka Kotarska.
Tivat airport is just at the bottom of the hill (but it doesn't cause a nuisance, don't worry), so it's perfect if you're lucky enough to be able to fly direct there. If not, Dubrovnik airport is 1-2 hours away, depending on traffic.
Vesna was a welcoming and helpful host and will keep you right with local recommendations.
For animal lovers, next door's cats are very friendly, especially the ginger one.
We had a lovely time here; highly recommended.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review
We are so glad you had such an enjoyable holiday
We hope we may be able to welcome you back again one day
Beautiful apartments in a stunning location
My trip was wonderful from start to finish. Prior to our holiday the owners provided us with lots of information on what to do and see, we received a welcome pack via email, which is also in the apartment, but the advantage of having it before we set off meant that we were able to prioritise our trips in advance. All of our questions were answered and useful phrases and numbers were a great help. On arrival we were welcomed by Vesna who showed us around our apartment and again answered all of our questions. Overall I felt very welcomed and looked after, which took away all the stresses of being in a new country.
The apartment itself was clean, tidy and spacious. The bathrooms were modern and pleasant and there were stunning views of the mountains everywhere you looked, whether swimming in the pool, BBQ-ing on the terrace or getting some water out of the fridge, the scenery was breath-taking. The apartments are high up a steep winey road, which was fun to walk up and down once, and there are some beautiful walking trails which are fun to explore, so take your walking shoes. Overall it was peaceful, charming and picturesque, the perfect setting for a relaxing holiday.
Location is great, it is a short taxi ride to the airport, we took a taxi to Tivat in the evenings for dinner and Kotor for a day out, both are recommended and the taxis are very cheap.
Thank you so much for the positive review. We are so pleased that you love the place as much as we do. We hope we will be able to we,come you to Palmagora again. Best wishes
Gorgeous and peaceful setting
We had a brilliant stay in one of the Palma Gora villas. The setting is beautiful and peaceful, and it makes a perfect base to either explore Montenegro or just chill by the pool. The villas are well equipped, with thoughtful items included like books, and games and the outside communal space and bbq is great, it would be a lovely place to rent with friends. Being rural you do need a car, but with Tivat airport being less than 10 minutes away, and cheap car hire prices this isnt a problem. The information Chris gave us before we arrived was very helpful, with recommendations on restaurants, day trips etc. And waking up to lovely views every morning, and with a refreshing pool for us all to jump into after breakfast was perfect. The only downside was limited wifi although to be honest that just added to the relaxation. Thank you Chris, we will come again!
Thank you so much for the review. I am so glad you loved the location as much as we do. We are currently looking at improving the wifi coverage for next year so hopefully this will no longer be an issue.
We look forward to welcoming you back.
Tranquil and beautiful setting
We had a fantastic week in Montenegro in one of Chris' apartments - the setting was beautiful with great views and the appartment had everything needed for a holiday. We loved the swimming pool and barbecue area and were well looked after by the property manager on location who helped sort wifi issues out (not that one should be working when on holidays). The location is quiet yet with easy access to supermarkets, beaches (we loved the peninsula) and the beautiful towns around the fjord - all around 20-30min drive away. Montenegro is a beautiful place although Budva and the coastal towns can get quite crowded in the summer months -yet there are enough places to explore and to stay away from crowds.
Thank you so much for the review. I'm delighted you loved the area and the apartments. We hope we can welcome you again another year.
Beautiful setting for stunning appartments.
Four of us stayed in the orchard which had everything we needed inside and a great terrace for seeing the beautiful mountain and sea views while eating and relaxing.
The Palmagora villas are positioned perfectly for getting everywhere. 2 minutes from the main costal road, everywhere is an easy drive.
The BBQ terrace is a lovely touch as we spent many nights out on it.
Vesna the lady who looks after you while there is superb. Came up a couple of times in the week to see if everything was okay, also just a text away as well.
All in all a fantastic holiday.
Thank you Matt, I'm so glad you all had a lovely time
