Bay of Kotor is often described as Southern Europe's most spectacular Fjord.

Lord Byron, the English Romantic poet described it in 1872 as ' the most beautiful encounter between the land and sea'.

According to Jacques Cousteau- ' the part of Adriatic Coast belonging to Montenegro is the purest part of the Mediterranean'.

Unusual delights in store: Amidst the historic towns and places of interest mentioned earlier usually well attended throughout busy seasons and offering lively environments, the location of Villa Boka provides in contrast a tranquil haven as a refuge, devoid of commercial pressures and the usual trappings of today. Leisurely evening walks along the long seafront lined with houses from the past centuries between the wooded slopes of the mountains and the bay is a relaxing end to the day. Leaving Prcanj by foot walking a bit further east or west brings one to smaller places with equally fascinating histories and friendly, informal locals. The fish on offer in smaller restaurants along the walk is fresh and prepared according to traditional recipes.

During daytime, apart from the Villa's own pool, there is an array of places to swim, both near and far, reached by foot, boat or car.

Some further errands: Prcanj was the first town to establish regular postal link with Venice a few centuries ago. They commuted by galleons or more often by rowing boats.The immense influence this Republic exerted in the Bay of Kotor is witnessed by magnificent churches and public buildings and the rest of everyday architecture. It is well worth a walk to the Upper Stoliv- a place in ruins above the present-day Stoliv some 1000 steps up, whose remaining church's spire-clock is wound daily by a devoted attendant paying homage to an old tradition. Views offered are breath-taking within a totally peaceful surroundings.

The famous island Gospe od Skrpelja with its church is a world-wide landmark and many people arrive from diverse places to visit, see and pray. The island was literally built by human hands in gratitude to the Lady of Skrpelj for survival from a great storm. Near-by is the magnificent town of Perast, full of monuments dating from past ages boasting a rich naval history. Climbing the walls right to the top fortress of St. Ivan above Kotor is a must.

Further afield river Tara canyon, the longest and deepest canyon in Europe and second deepest in the world after Grand Canyon in the US, is famous for white water rafting, particularly in spring and autumn.

The bridge over the canyon, built in 1940, had the tallest wooden scaffolding to date and when finished became the biggest vehicular carrying concrete arch of its time.

Many ways to get there: The nearest airport is Tivat, only 20mins taxi ride from the Villa. Montenegro Airlines flies there from a number of European Capitals: London, Belgrade,Copenhagen, Dusseldorf, Gatwick, Moscow, Paris CDG, Rome and a few others.

The second major airport convenient for the location is Dubrovnik served by many state airlines including BA, Croatia Airlines, Austrian and many others. EasyJet and Flybe, Wizz as well as Air Lingus have recently been added. Podgorica too is well served by international airlines .Montenegro Airlines fly from London three times a week. It takes one and a half hours from Dubrovnik airport to arrive at Prcanj, a few minutes more from Podgorica Airport.

Locally, a system of buses with a flat rate of Eur1 and stopping anywhere on request provide a flexible way to travel. Reasonably priced red taxis are abundant.

A magical place to stay

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed for a week at Vila Boka Prcanj in august last year and had the most lovely holiday. As described, the Villa is beautifully designed, modern, comfortable, superbly equipped and spacious as well as being extremely well maintained and clean. We were two families with 3 young children between us and this was the perfect place to stay; One family at the top floor, the other family at the ground floor sharing the spacious open plan kitchen, dining and living room on the first floor. The pool is beautiful and a great place to cool down. The Villa is right on the Bay of Kotor and the sea is only a few steps across a small local road and an idyllic place to swim. The view from the villa is spectacular, over the bay and towards a majestic mountain range. The location is great. Everything we needed was within a short distance. There is a village shop a few minutes walk down the road where we could buy the basics. Bigger supermarkets are a 20 min drive to the historic and very scenic walled town of Kotor which has numerous squares and narrow streets, restaurants and cafés. Kotor, along with most of this side of Montenegro is relatively untouched by tourism and thus very charming. There are also many good neighbourhood restaurants a short drive from the Villa.
It was difficult to tear ourselves away from the wonderful villa but we were glad we did a few excursions. We drove up Mount Loveen and along surrounding mountains, where we had lunch in a remote village with a misty view of Lake Skada. Our favorite trip was to a little island 'Our Lady of the Rock'. We got onto the small boat at Perast which is on the other side of the bay, a most spectacular drive. The owners were very helpful and friendly.
This was one of our most successful family holidays and we would love to return to the comforts of the villa and to see more of Montenegro and it's spectacular landscapes.

Owner's Response: It gives us a great pleasure to have received such a positive appreciation of Vila Boka. The villa was in many ways a labour of love and we like sharing it with our guests.
We have collected together information on trips and the surrounding area which is available in the villa.

Beautiful stay in Montenegro

  • 4 out of 5
This is a truly exceptional property in a most beautiful part of the world. We had 8 people staying from two families for 10 nights. The children are older teenagers, and there was plenty for them to do. The proximity to the 'lake' means that swimming happened most days. We were blessed by good weather for 9 of the 10 days, and travelled to many of the beaches and towns helpfully suggested by the guide in the property. The advantage of Montenegro is that even in August the beaches are far from crowded, and the overall cost of living is lower than in many other comparable parts of Europe. There are good restaurants nearby, as well as a 'local' shop, and big supermarkets within reasonable reach.
The house was superbly equipped. There were a couple of issues that were dealt with as expeditiously as possible by the owner and didn't impact upon the holiday. The property was accurately described, and the view from the first floor is about as beautiful as you could imagine, especially with the big ships going dramatically by. The property was very clean. The only issue of note is that you need to use the dehumidifiers in the basement to avoid damp so close to a lake.
I would thoroughly recommend the property. My only reservation outside concerns the roads. The road on the south side of the 'lake' is about 1.5 times the width of a car, and immediately adjacent to the lake. You need to drive along this road for about 15 minutes whichever side you approach the villa from. It isn't a big issue, but less confident drivers should be aware that not all drivers in Montenegro slow down as much as you may hope they would! What is really helpful is that the property has a lockable front gate preventing younger children (or in our case an autistic 21 year old) wandering onto the road.
So overall thoroughly recommended...

Modern, luxurious accommodation. Fabulous views

  • 5 out of 5
Very comfortable and well maintained. Within easy distance of Tivat and Kotor and their restaurants. A lovely open plan kitchen leading to a striking double height dining room..The swimming pool looked good and would be welcome in hot weather. The view of Kotor bay from the balconies was stunning. A good base for exploring Montenegro and lovely peaceful walking in the hills, bracing and snowy at this time of the year. I would definitely recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely comments and we are very glad you enjoyed your stay. We also love to walk in the mountains behind the villa and up towards Cetinje, and find it amazingly peaceful at this time of the year.

Stunning Villa Boka

  • 5 out of 5
Extraordinarily beautiful position, well equipped and spick and span, the Villa Boka proved to be a very special late winter bolthole for my wife and I and our friends. As two couples, the three levels, with the living space on the middle, was perfect for combining private and communal times. Thank you so much, what a superb place.

Fantastic Views

  • 4 out of 5
We had a wonderful time in the villa and enjoying the surrounding area. The views from the main bedroom and lounge were just spectacular. We didn't use the pool much, mainly because swimming in the sea, right outside the front door, was fantastic. We hope to visit again next year.

Owner's Response: I am really pleased you had a great stay at our villa and that you swam in the lovely sea just in front of the house! It would be a pleasure to have you back next year.

It's not worth it

It's not worth it
  • 1 out of 5
The setting may be lovely and the pool clean, but that's about it. This villa is totally overpriced considering it is unclean (there is mould and mildew in the bottom level which you can see on the chairs and cushions which gives this level an unpleasant odour and there is built up grime everywhere), the air conditioning wasn't working for the first few days, the towels and bed linen are grey with use and the linen for our bed did not fit properly. I certainly would not recommend anyone going there. PS We couldn't sit outside because the mosquitoes were so bad.

Owner's Response: We are terribly disappointed that you felt that the villa was not satisfactory especially as the house has had such positive feedback previously. I am aware it is frustrating when equipment breaks down but faults do occasionally occur. We believe that the air-conditioning was attended to efficiently, even though it took two attempts to cure the problem.
Unfortunately, the weeks preceding the tourist season were unusually wet and many homes on this side of the bay and with a similar physical orientation have suffered from trapped moisture this year. It appears that with high humidity at this proximity to the sea, it is taking a long time for the pool level to dry out completely. We take reports of poor cleaning very seriously and have taken steps to ensure that improvements are made.
With regard to mosquitoes, the presence of these creatures is not within our control but, in our experience, their numbers are no worse in this location than in any other comparable spot.

Located in the beautiful, historic village of Prcanj and just 6 km from the stunning medieval walled city of Kotor (now a UNESCO World Heritage Site) with its lively cafes, markets, restaurants and thriving nightlife. In existence since 10th century, it boasts rich naval heritage, its architecture dating from the Venetian and Austro-Hungarian times as well as from the past two centuries.

Try kayaking or diving, mountaneering or sailing across the mysterious Lake Skadar.

Explore Boka Kotorska with its seafront towns and marinas and definitely sample the sea food!

Dubrovnik is under 2 hours drive with excellent flight connections and the open sea is 1/2 hour by car. Prcanj has restaurants, cafes and stores that open early and close late at night.

Or just enjoy the unparalleled views at hand in peace at the bay's widest.
