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.
