Seafront Apartment with Stunning Mountain Views. Close to Kotor old Town
About James Head
Lily and I live in Warwickshire, England. We have an adult son and daughter. We were introduced to Montenegro in 2009 by a friend who has a nearby water front property and we fell in love with the landscape, the culture and the people. We own two properties in Montenegro, both of which are available for holidays. The Stone House, 165 Prcanj (property # 1092464) and Villa Ruza, Donja Lastva (property ref # 8368138). We purchased Villa Ruza in November 2013 when it had been neglected for decades. The renovation began in September 2016 and was finished in August 2017. Our purchase of The Stone House, 165 Prcanj – was documented by House Hunters International in 2013. This was the first ever HHI show filmed in Montenegro. It is Season 64, Episode 8. We want you to have the best holiday experience ever. We have a great team in Montenegro who are there to help you. We are available to help in any way we can with the planning of your holiday.

Wonderful stay with one of the most beautiful views in the world
This is our third time in Kotor bay and our second time at the stone house. It's just such a lovely place to stay - it really made the holiday. Great having restaurants and a bakery and a choice of mini-markets a stone's throw from the flat, but also having our own little section of the bay for swimming, and private terrace for breakfasts.
That flat itself was immaculate. There are amazing views from every room, deep sofas for relaxing, room for everyone at the table and lovely huge and comfy beds.
I'd love to keep this place as my secret, but I suppose that wouldn't be fair...
We never forget that our guests have lots of options when deciding where to have their holiday. When guests decide to return it gives us huge encouragement that we are doing many of the right things to enable our guests to enjoy Kotor Bay.
Just what we needed - perfect place in the perfect location
Everything was perfect. The agency came out immediately when I reported the AC broke. Excellent location, away from the mess in Kotor but close enough to visit it. The view was excellent from inside the home via the windows over the bay or from the back porch where we saw the bay plus the trail over the walls at Kotor that we hiked. You don't have a cruise ship blocking the view from this place as you would if you were closer to Kotor, for me that's a bonus. We visited the farmers market in Kotor, that was alright, buying stuff there is a bit of a racket because I felt that they were a little pushy on us tourists, and the quality of goods was so-so. Esp trying local brandy there. Honestly you can get stuff just as good at the little market 1 minute up from the house or the supermarket in Kotor. But, it is worth seeing the market and would be fun if haggling is your thing and you just want to see the local characters. Get there early before the cruise ships do.
The road on this side of the bay isn't as busy and dangerous as it would be from the Perast side. Another reason to stay here. Kitchen was just right, easy access markets to walk to for everything you need, including local beer, wine, and their local brandy. Chairs on the front water deck were wonderful,. We spent most of the time in the water. Met Drago, the neighbor the last day and tried his homemade delicious Rakija brandy.. Another guy was there who spoke German so we could have a conversation. Will definitely come back if we are in the area. Thanks for having us. Cheers..Don
Glad you enjoyed your stay in Prcanj and thanks for all the detail. You make a good point. Kotor is great to visit.
Particularly in the evenings when the cruise ships have left. But if you want a bit of respite from the heat, noise and the people best not to base yourself there.
A perfect place to relax and unwind
We adored our stay at the Stone House. It's a fabulous apartment and so well situated. It's ideally equipped for the weather; when you need shade the terrace is perfect and when you want to sunbathe, the jetty is perfect. We loved swimming in the baying watching the world go by. It's a gentle pace of life. We didn't stray too far as we had already travelled further afield in Montenegro. Our hire car stayed outside for the entire week and we used local transport which was very easy. We ate locally and enjoyed one of Ladranka's amazing home cooked meals. James was fantastically organised and a very attentive. The apartment was perfectly equipped and a lovely airy space for a wonderfully relaxing family holiday.
It is quite common for guests to find they have everything they need when staying with us in Prcanj. We are glad you had a relaxing family holiday.
We had a fantastic week at the Stone House. The property is clean, airy, and spacious with amazing views and a lovely shaded outdoor seating area. We were a group of five and all of us swam several times a day in the crystal clear water right across the road. Our children (10 & 8) loved having the independence of walking to the bakery and mini marts by themselves. Jadranka and Voja who live downstairs were extremely hospitable and we enjoyed a typical Montenegrin meal cooked by them one evening. It was great to smell the fish being grilled outside before being delivered to our door!
There are plenty of great restaurants within easy walking distance of the house, all with waterfront seating. In Kotor we especially enjoyed lunch at the Galion restaurant, which is great value for the high quality of food, service and beautiful setting.
We had a rental car but you could easily get by here without one. The Red Taxi company was very reliable and can be booked by email for future trips or Whatsap for immediate service.
Other highlights for us were a 3 hour private boat trip around the bay and out to the blue cave. A visit to Perast and a drive up the hairpin road from Kotor to Lovcen.
We didn't venture far, but with a location like this you really don't need to. Highly recommend!
Swimming, an amazing location, home cooked food delivered to your door, and so much more. Glad you had such a great holiday.
Lord Byron was staying in Prcanj when he described Montenegro as the Pearl of the Adriatic. Montenegro is a beautiful coastal republic which faces Italy across the Adriatic Sea.
With its stunning scenery, warm Mediterranean climate and hospitable people it’s no wonder that the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) has identified it as the fastest growing holiday destination in the world. Montenegro is doing no more than recapturing the glory of its 1970’s and 80’s heyday when film stars made a beeline for its unspoiled medieval coastal towns and inviting beaches and coves.
One of the most attractive locations in Montenegro is the Bay of Kotor (Boka Kotorska) where 165 Prcanj is located. Wooded hills slope down to the sparkling water whilst medieval towns and villages built from local stone nestle at the water’s edge.
Home to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites – the ancient walled city of Kotor and Durmitor National Park – Montenegro is cherished by lovers of history and nature alike.
Porto Montenegro is a short cab ride away. It is the biggest Super yacht Marina in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea. You can combine a walk along the palm tree lined pontoons looking at the boats with exquisite water front dining. Porto Montenegro is not to be missed.
With EU accession, likely to be only a few years away and a Government determined to avoid the fate of the overdeveloped Spanish Costa's Montenegro really is a wonderful holiday destination worth exploring.
English is widely spoken. It is now taught in schools and then perfected from 'Pop songs & TV shows’. May to September the average daily temp is 28 degrees Celsius with an average of 9 hrs. of sunshine per day.
