Overview

Montenegro Villa Rental Photos and Description

Peaceful location, 10-15 minutes walk to the beach.

Ideally located between the buzzing medieval Old Town of Budva and the famous picturesque Sveti Stefan. Nestled up against the mountain side, just 10-15 min walk from the sandy Becici beach, the villa offers the best of both worlds: peaceful breathtaking panoramic views of the bay and the surrounding mountains while at the same time just a stroll away from lively cafes and restaurants. In close proximity, are two 5 star hotels where one can indulge in gourmet cuisine and be pampered in luxury spas. A great family holiday spot, that is particularly child friendly.

The villa has been renovated in 2007, mostly using natural materials, stone and wood throughout, capturing the most of the beautiful surroundings and magical light. It is fully equipped and tastefully furnished. The house is very spacious (430m?) with three huge terraces on each level with uninterrupted water views. Just above the house, you can enjoy beautiful hikes in the mountain with captivating views and pristine nature

Further details: Close to the house (about 300m) there are two small convenience shops for your daily needs, but we recommend great food market in Budva, where you can buy lots of organic products sourced from local farmers.

Becici, Sveti Stefan and Budva have banks, medical centres and tourist information centres, as well as dozens of coffee shops, bars and restaurants. The best night-life is found in Budva.

Close to the house there are two 5 star hotels that provide luxurious spas for your pampering and indulgence.

The Adriatic is regarded as one of the world's clearest seas, so indulge in scuba or snorkelling.

Travel: Tivat Airport is about 25 km away, Podgorica airport 50 km and Dubrovnik Airport about 120 km away.

Flights from the UK to Dubrovnik are frequent (try Thomsonfly, Flybe, Ba and Croatiaairlines). Summer flights to Tivat from Heathrow and other European airports are ideal given proximity to villa (check BA, JAT, Montenegro airways).

Port of Bar is 38 km away. The last 100m of the road to the house is a dirt road that is awaiting renovations by the municipality before the summer season. Car hire is recommended. Many cheap internet car rental offers are available.

Distances: All the major sights of coastal Montenegro are within easy driving distance: Budva, Sveti Stefan, Petrovac, Prcanj, Kotor, Perast, Herceg Novi, etc.

The ancient capital of Cetinje can be reached in just over an hour by taking the breathtaking, hairpin mountain road.

Skadar Lake is less than 30km away from the villa.

The mountainous interior of Montenegro is worth at least a one-day excursion to explore amongst others Ostrog Monastery, Tara Canyon (the 2nd deepest in the world), Durmitor National Park,...

FANTASTIC TRIP!!! GREAT PLACE

  • 5 of 5

So, where do I begin? Well, that we had an absolutely amazing time. We stayed for a week in July 2016 -- my husband and I, our two teenage kids and my dad. Despite the HORDES of tourists in Budva, Kotor and Dubrovnik (so go early to any of these places to beat the crowds), this villa provides the peace and calm every vacation needs. We took advantage of cooking fresh fish at the lovely stone grill (stop at the fish market on the way from the ferry to the villa -- much better than the fish market at the Budva mega market), daily swims in the pool with fantastic views of the sea, peaceful reading on the many terraces throughout the house (so many nice environments to choose from). And Montenegro itself is an adventure -- We visited Kotor, drove the whole bay, swam in Kotor bay, drove to Lake Skadar and returned via a very picturesque mountain road, ate at the lovely Konoba Catovica Mlini on the bay, immersed ourselves in the country's great wine, honey and Prsuit. Maja was fabulous (even tho we didn't personally meet), esp considering we had a few travel bumps that she worked through with us. House manager Jovo met us to take us to house and give us lay of the land. I hope we return to Montenegro someday!!!

Fantastic Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 with teen age children.we arrived at the beginning of June. It was our first time to Montenegro. It could not have been a better vacation. The owner Maja, is extremely responsive and helpful. The house manager greeted us and led us to the house. The level of client service was very high. When we arrived we had everything we needed. The house is beautiful Clean well appointed and very spacious. We loved the kitchen, patios and large living room.The outdoor patios and pool are welcoming comfortable and private and allow for extraordinary views. We were a short drive to the beach and restaurants where there are a host of water activities available. It was the perfect combination of beach vacation and cultural touring- Kotor, the monastery at Ostrog and Skadar Lake.The villa is perfectly located to allow for both.

We appreciated the small market just down the hill from the Villa. The house manager gave us very good restaurant re I mendacious. We also discovered the Aman resort and beautiful beaches of Svet Stefani.

We highly recommend this villa .

Beautiful House - Exactly as pictured

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful, the views were stunning and the homeowners and local property manager were all very accommodating and easy to contact. We were two families, 8 people total and there was more than enough room for everybody. We really enjoyed the pool and all the great terraces. The house had everything we needed and was wonderfully peaceful for sleeping.

Beautiful Villa with a great pool!

  • 5 of 5

I can highly recommend Villa Jelka! It is very big, all the rooms were marvelous, it was clean, quiet area, well-equipped, lovely balconies and we did not miss anything. The owner provided great service! And the "manager" who lived close to the villa was very helpful and nice. We would love to come back.

Great villa and pool

  • 5 of 5

The villa is very spacious with lots of different seating areas and is well furnished and equipped. We especially loved the swimming pool which has gorgeous views and was very safe for our small children as it is separated with a gate.

A car is essential but the villa is well located close to the great beaches of Sveti Stefan and also shops and town of Budva.

Special mention for the local manager Vesna who was extremely helpful organising massages, extra shopping an even pizza delivery.

We had a great holiday and highly recommend the villa!

A Wonderful Villa with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

Despite raised expectations from previous excellent reviews Villa Jelka did not disappoint ...it truly is a wonderful holiday home. We were a party of five .. Rising to seven for a week .. And the place is so roomy that everyone felt they had space and could chill ...the pool was fabulous with both shaded and sunny areas ..the house was well appointed and beautifully maintained with regular cleaning visits. There was good parking for 1 car though we parked the other at the end if the road ..plenty of space.. We all enjoyed the villa .. Particularly the numerous terraces and the views.

We loved Montenegro too ..it is a stunning country with the hills rolling into the sea and beautiful old walled towns. The people were exceptionally friendly too and most spoke good English though clearly most tourists were either Serbs or russian. Our only criticism would be that the beach areas were very crowded indeed ...even allowing for it being the peak season. However the Villa itself ..being so far up the hills ..was an oasis of calm.

The villa is nestled up against the mountain side, just 10-15 minutes walk to the famous sandy Becici beach (1950m long), proclaimed as the most beautiful beach in Europe.

The villa is a short drive away from the most beautiful beaches and coves in Montenegro: Przno old fishing village and exquisite cove (2km), famous picturesque Sveti Stefan and its magical Queen's and King's Beaches (4km), pristine Jaz (4km), etc...

It is also a short drive from the buzzing medieval Old Town of Budva (2-3km), the UNESCO protected Kotor village and its breathtaking bay (30km), and Skadar Lake (25km), one of the biggest habitat of bird species in Europe.
