Casa Amarillo is a self catering, luxury holiday duplex (two storey) apartment with stunning views out over the Bay to the Adriatic Sea. Situated at the base of the sunny slopes of Mt Orijen it is only a few minutes by car to Topla, Igalo, and the citadel town of Herceg Novi with shops, banks, a marina, and many, many restaurants with both local and international cuisines. Beaches, and all water sports are minutes away along the 7Km promenade Danica.
The 4 double bedroom luxuriously furnished apartment takes up the top two floors of a three storey renovated house and is new to the rental market for 2011. There is private parking for three cars, a small private garden for alfresco dining with built in BBQ and open views to the Adriatic Sea.
Luxury 4 bedroom apartment with spectacular views: Casa Amarillo is very spacious duplex apartment (second and third floor of a three storey house) with the most spectacular 180 degree views of the mountains and the sea. It is only approximately 20 minutes from the Croatia/Montenegro border crossings, so arriving at Dubrovnik airport is very easy with flights from the UK and European cities arriving daily. A car is really necessary for guests to get back and forth to the beaches and towns of Herceg Novi, Igalo and Topla. Although it is only a few minutes by car it would be an uphill walk to the apartment, which guests may find too much in the heat of the summer. Both the private parking and garden to the apartment are to the back and side of the house.
A stream runs to the side of the house and the garden is fenced in and safe for children. The built-in BBQ will be ready for the summer months. Casa Amarillo is new onto the market for 2011 with all brand new furnishings and original
paintings. There is a working fireplace.
Shopping and places of interest: Topla 111 nestles on the lower slopes of Mt Orijen. The nearest supermarket and shops in the village of Topla which is less than a km downhill.
Places of interest include the walled towns of Herceg Novi, Perast (20km) and Kotor (1 hour) as well as beaches and mountains (Orijen & Lovcen are both over 5,000ft) Lake Skadar is a paradise for bird watchers. The renowned Igalo Spa and Health Centre which is only 5 minutes by car from Casa Amarillo is the largest and best-known institution for multidisciplinary and European Spa treatment in the Mediterranean.The Spa specialises in preventative and physical medicine, rehabilitation, wellness, fitness & sport, massage, facials, hydrotherapy, thermal waters, and mud applications. The coastal resorts of Topla and Igalo are lined with restaurants and shops and are adjoined to Herceg Novi along the 7km promenade, Pet Danica. There is also a very lovely Marina where boat trips can be arranged and all water sports catered for.
Just got back from our trip to Montenegro.
Although the general feeling about MNE is not that good and far from my expectations, Casa Amarillo was way better than expected, way better than in pictures. Everything was new and shiny, the view is great, the kitchen was fully equiped and the yard more than ok for a barbecue and a nice dinner.
The only bad thing is the access road, which is a steep hill and can be difficult for an unexperienced driver. We didn't have any problem in making this climb 1-2 times a day with an Opel Astra but I recommend a small diesel car or an SUV.
I would recommend the apartment to anyone, anytime, but Montenegro and its inhabitants need improvements regarding the way they treat tourists and the services in general.
Thank you for everything Mrs McCuscker and Montenegro Living.
Casa Amarillo is located at Topla 111 on the sunny slopes of Mt Orjen, just moments by car behind the citadel town of Herceg Novi and the spa town of Igalo. It looks out over the Bay towards the Adriatic Sea. Herceg Novi has banks, shops, a Marina and many, many restaurants serving local and international cuisines. Herceg Novi is recognisable by the abundance of mimosa trees and its numerous flights of stairs. It is a 'city of the sun', thanks to the large number of sunny days all year round.
The coastline, Skadar lake, the canyons or the mountains are all within easy reach. In one day, it is possible to have a coffee on one of the numerous beaches, eat lunch with the song of the birds on Skardar Lake and dine next to a fireplace on the slopes of the Durmitor Mountain. The UNESCO sites of Kotor and Dubrovnik are closeby also.
