We stayed here at the beginning of September last year and had been looking forward to the trip for some time after seeing photos of the place and doing research on the area. I have to say though, the reality really did exceed our expectations...and it's not often you can say that!
The location is simply stunning - looking out over the crystal clear waters and the jaw dropping mountainous backdrop, I could've sat there for days (and we did a couple of days!) just soaking up the view and watching the amazing boats sailing past whilst sipping on a cold beer - absolute bliss! The sun terrace is the jewel in the crown here, you really do have to see it to believe it!
Before we booked here we were made aware of the fact that the cottage overlooks the ferry port and to expect a bit of noise. You can hear the ferries but I have to say it was absolutely not a problem for us and I would actually say it was nice because it was something to watch while we sat on the sun terrace.
We loved the location because you are really amongst the local community and the friendly gentleman next door was always out with his fishing rod and a beer - although they didn't speak much English, him and his wife were always very friendly and smiley when we walked past. There are some lovely little beach bars a few minutes walk in each direction which we strolled down to a few times and they're great places to just chill out with a drink by the water.
We rented a car and drove to Porto Montenegro which is a very impressive place to stroll around - there are some top quality restaurants and bars there and the Marina is home to some of the most impressive super yaghts I have ever seen. We also visited Kotor which is an amazing little walled town with cobbled streets - we went and had a lovely meal there which was great value and would definitely recommend a visit.
Overall we had an absolutely fabulous holiday and I would recommend anyone to visit this perfect little cottage - Montengro really is an undiscovered gem and we will be returning this year!
