Modern apartment in quiet village location, 70m to Kotor Bay, 5km from Kotor
Sleeps 4/6. Modern 2 bedroom top floor penthouse apartment with shared pool, ideal for families or a couple who like the space. 70 metres from the sea with stunning views across Kotor Bay to Dobrota. Air-conditioning. 10 min drive to the historic and UNESCO World Heritage walled town of Kotor. Cafés, shops, bars, bakery and restaurants are all within a few minutes walk. This modern new apartment is tastefully decorated and thoughtfully furnished on the top floor within a small exclusive 6 apartment development in the picturesque village of Prcanj. It is light and airy with a large balcony that has fantastic views across the Boka Kotorska to the beautiful mountains opposite. The apartment has its own parking area. Prcanj is a charming waterfront village and is an ideal base from which to explore the various delights of Montenegro. It is close enough to the action of Kotor and Budva but far enough away to escape the hubbub if you prefer!

About David & Angelique Russell
We live in Yorkshire with our daughter and many four legged friends. One of us manages a bed and breakfast (www.thorpe-hall.co.uk) from our home, and the other manages marketing and PR for a well known luxury brand. We have been visiting the Bay of Kotor area for several years and are never disappointed by its beauty.
David & Angelique Russell purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why David & Angelique Russell chose Prčanj
We never tire of the amazing views our penthouse apartment offers, taking in the Bay and up to Kotor. We relish its tranquil location which is a quick drive from Kotor and walkable to a shop and choice of restaurants. Montenegro has changed over the years we have been visiting. We have benefitted from the infrastructure investments . . . road improvements, better bus schedules, etc . . . which has no doubt brought more visitors . . . making the our retreat to scenic balcony seem even more peaceful :)
What makes this Apartment unique
Recently added flights into Tivat have made for a very short transfer time from the airport - more time to take in the views! We also love our welcome at Lanterna (at the bottom of the hill) which has been run by the same family ever since we started coming here and continues to feel like a "local" when we visit.

Superb accommodation in a stunning location
Spacious well equipped apartment with stunning views over Kotor Bay. Within easy access of Kotor and the surrounding area. Make time for a visit to Sveti Stefan on the coast. Directions received prior to visit were exceptional. Not one wrong turn from Dubrovnik to meeting point. Would not hesitate to return.
So very pleased you enjoyed yourselves!! It is such a beautiful part of the world and glad that our team got you there without a wrong turn ... not an easy feat :))
Lovely apartment, incredible views.
We had a wonderful 10 night stay in this lovely apartment in Prcanj. Well equipped and spacious, the highlight is the wrap around balcony, which is accessible via 3 sets of patio doors giving a wonderful light and open feel to the property and maximum access to the stunning views. There can't be many better views anywhere.
Parking is ample, and as others have said a car really is necessary in our opinion if you're staying any length of time as the hill is very steep up to the house.
The little pool is adequate and a nice option for a dip, but in reality if you want to swim then get down to the bay! There's a lovely little restaurant, Know Lanterna, at the bottom of the hill, which opens all day including for breakfast and has a lovely little pier and small beach, with access to the bay for swimming. Idyllic.
The area is lovely, road to and from Kotor is tricky, but just take your time and don't be intimidated by beeping locals! There are plenty of shops, all take card payments, but the nearest cashpoint is in Kotor.
Nicky, who services the property, is brilliant, really helpful and happy to give advice on places to go and see. We felt very well looked after.
Overall a perfect break, which I cannot recommend highly enough.
Stunning Views . . . Peaceful Part of the World!!!!
What a sweet apartment with the most amazing views! Truth be told most of our time in the apartment was spent on the terrace. Great spot for exploring. We flew into Tivat and chose not to hire a car. Taxi to the apartment is only 20€. Taxi to Kotor is 10€ (and once was 5€) and to Budva 25€. Yes, the hill up to the apartment are steep, but the views are worth it!
Great apartment with spectacular views
The apartment was spotless and well equipped. As described. Some wear on the furniture. Dual aspect balcony great - morning sun right through to 4ish in the afternoon, with somewhere to sit out of the sun if you want. We hired a car, and felt that it made the apt work for us. Bakery and well stocked mini market close by. We used Red taxis at night, they were cheaper than others (between 4-5euro from Kotor). As the owners have said, it is up a steep hill, but not a major issue. Pool is small but really great - the children loved it. Nicky was really helpful and available if we needed anything. All in all, it's a relaxing location (once you get used to the narrow road and the speed of some other drivers 😊). We would recommend this apartment. Thank you, David and Angelique.
Breathtaking, unforgettable view! Missing it already!
We had a wonderful week's stay at David and Angelique's beautiful apartment. It commands a breathtaking position over Kotor Bay and is well situated within walking distance (albeit up a very steep hill!) of two very good restaurants, and a small corner shop supermarket. We had everything we needed and slept very peacefully too. It's lovely to watch the sun come up over the mountains in the morning, the cruise ships enter and depart the bay, and the lights across the water gradually shine longer towards you as the evening draws in. The pool underneath is a welcome end-of-day treat in which to cool off in the shade. It's a short drive to a lovely small pebbly beach alongside the Hotel Splendido where the water is crystal clear and as warm as a heated swimming pool! A little bit further along is the beautiful old town of Kotor, which is definitely worth a visit, with a cool beach and bar, a kids' play area, shopping centre and lots of cafes, bars and souvenir shops to wander round in the old town. A further drive around the bay to Perast is a bit more upmarket and modern in terms of eateries and boat trips to some islands are available quite cheaply there too.
The mountains around the bay are so beautiful that it feels a lot less impressive when you enter the tunnel and come out the other side on the road to Budva, which as a town feels very overdeveloped and touristy, but the beaches nearby, particularly Jazz beach are well worth a visit. One side of the bay is very busy, noisy, but with cool inflatables for the kids, whereas if you walk all the way along the walkway to the far left end it's like some kind of Caribbean island. Hardly anyone around, a big space between sun beds and a very trendy beach bar nestled on the far rocks, which has waiter service too! Sveti Stefan is much-talked about, but very busy and commercialised. If you get a bed near the beach bar you can use their wi-if all day though...
Another day out was the long (90min) drive up to the Loscven National Park, which was actually just a big expanse of trees and didn't really have any kind of main entrance, but it did have a restaurant and a rather impressive walk up steps towards a mausoleum. I'm all honesty the drive up was far more impressive and you see the whole of Kotor Bay from a great height. If I could relive the day I would've just driven half way up to take in the view and then come back down again and gone to the beach.
Definetely a wonderful stay. If you do not have a car many taxis will not climb up the big hill (it's a big hill) other then that there is no TV and also no wifi. This was not a big issue for us but the wifi would have been nice.
The pool is not in a very attractive area and we did not use at all. It was cold because it is in a shaded area.
The location is about 10 minute drive from center of kotor bay.
The views, incredible...and I would stay here again just for the views because they are wondeful!
Our apartment is located in Prčanj, a small town on Montenegro's Bay of Kotor (Boka Kotorska, or simply 'the Boka. It is located 3 miles west of Kotor, opposite Dobrota and between the settlements of Muo and Stoliv. Prčanj stretches along the waterfront and within the immediate area of the apartment (at the foot of the hill) there are a few restaurants and bars within walking distance.
Kotor is only ten minutes away by taxi (not walkable) or there is a public bus which collects just outside the local shop at the bottom of the hill. Located along one of Montenegro's most beautiful bays, Kotor is a city of traders and famous sailors with many stories to tell. Medieval architecture and numerous monuments of cultural heritage have made Kotor a UNESCO listed “World Natural and Historical Heritage Site". Through the entire city the buildings are criss-crossed with narrow streets and squares. Also be sure to climb the city walls - perhaps best early in the morning before it get’s too hot. The steps of the wall are illuminated at night – a sight to behold! Looking for a market? Just outside the walls of Kotor old town is a daily market with mainly local fresh organic fruit and vegetables with a couple of stalls selling meat and cheese.
Around the Bay of Kotor you are spoiled for choice! You might choose to visit Perest . Why not visit by boat and also take in Our Lady of the Rocks and St George? You may prefer one of the beaches around the Bay. Alternatively, you may prefer the sandy beaches of Jaz or Trsteno . . . only twenty minutes by car. In case you are looking for a more sophisticated setting, why not spend the day at Porto Montenegro's Lido?
A bit further along the coast you find the iconic island of Sveti Stefan or Budva. Travelling inland Lake Skadar is ~1 hour drive and has some of the most beautiful scenery with a huge bird sanctuary with regular boat trips around the lake for bird watching or for fishing.
Whatever you choose, our apartment makes the perfect base to explore the many historical sites and outstanding natural beauty of the area.
