Sveti Stefan is a seaside resort in the west of the Balkan country of Montenegro.

The proximity to the larger town of Budva also means the self catering accommodation in Sveti Stefan will appeal to couples and groups of friends too.
Sveti Stefan (meaning Saint Stephen) is a seaside town that has built up around the most exclusive destination in Montenegro. Once separated by a tidal isthmus, the island of Sveti Stefan is now permanently connected to the mainland. Since the 15th century it was a fisherman’s village but in the 1950’s it was changed into a luxury village hotel resort. The buildings were kept the same on the outside so the village still looks quaint and old, yet the insides have been converted to provide luxury. Although your Sveti Stefan self catering accommodation will not be located on the island it is near by, and you can visit the island to get a feel for this unique place!
The beaches around your accommodation in Sveti Stefan are the main appeal. Lovely sandy beaches and pleasant waters make this the ideal destination for families with children. Holidaymakers who like exploring beautiful scenery will find there is plenty nearby as the mountains rise quite sharply from the coast in Montenegro, allowing for hiking where you can enjoy lakes, forests and more.
Being located just 3 miles (5km) from the larger town of Budva, self catering accommodation in Sveti Stefan can also be enjoyed by holidaymakers who want to see and experience this beautiful ancient town.

In the evenings Budva comes alive with young people enjoying themselves and has a vibrant nightlife. There are of course many excellent restaurants and bars here for those days when you prefer not to eat in at your Sveti Stefan accommodation.
