Bay of Kotor is often described as Southern Europe's most spectacular Fjord.

Lord Byron, the English Romantic poet described it in 1872 as ' the most beautiful encounter between the land and sea'.

According to Jacques Cousteau- ' the part of Adriatic Coast belonging to Montenegro is the purest part of the Mediterranean'.

Unusual delights in store: Amidst the historic towns and places of interest mentioned earlier usually well attended throughout busy seasons and offering lively environments, the location of Villa Boka provides in contrast a tranquil haven as a refuge, devoid of commercial pressures and the usual trappings of today. Leisurely evening walks along the long seafront lined with houses from the past centuries between the wooded slopes of the mountains and the bay is a relaxing end to the day. Leaving Prcanj by foot walking a bit further east or west brings one to smaller places with equally fascinating histories and friendly, informal locals. The fish on offer in smaller restaurants along the walk is fresh and prepared according to traditional recipes.

During daytime, apart from the Villa's own pool, there is an array of places to swim, both near and far, reached by foot, boat or car.

Prcanj was the first town to establish regular postal link with Venice a few centuries ago. They commuted by galleons or more often by rowing boats.The immense influence this Republic exerted in the Bay of Kotor is witnessed by magnificent churches and public buildings and the rest of everyday architecture. It is well worth a walk to the Upper Stoliv- a place in ruins above the present-day Stoliv some 1000 steps up, whose remaining church's spire-clock is wound daily by a devoted attendant paying homage to an old tradition. Views offered are breath-taking within a totally peaceful surroundings.

The famous island Gospe od Skrpelja with its church is a world-wide landmark and many people arrive from diverse places to visit, see and pray. The island was literally built by human hands in gratitude to the Lady of Skrpelj for survival from a great storm. Near-by is the magnificent town of Perast, full of monuments dating from past ages boasting a rich naval history. Climbing the walls right to the top fortress of St. Ivan above Kotor is a must.

Further afield river Tara canyon, the longest and deepest canyon in Europe and second deepest in the world after Grand Canyon in the US, is famous for white water rafting, particularly in spring and autumn.

The bridge over the canyon, built in 1940, had the tallest wooden scaffolding to date and when finished became the biggest vehicular carrying concrete arch of its time.

Many ways to get there: The nearest airport is Tivat, only 20mins taxi ride from the Villa. Montenegro Airlines flies there from a number of European Capitals: London, Belgrade,Copenhagen, Dusseldorf, Gatwick, Moscow, Paris CDG, Rome and a few others.

The second major airport convenient for the location is Dubrovnik served by many state airlines including BA, Croatia Airlines, Austrian and many others. EasyJet and Flybe, Wizz as well as Air Lingus have recently been added. Podgorica too is well served by international airlines .Montenegro Airlines fly from London three times a week. It takes one and a half hours from Dubrovnik airport to arrive at Prcanj, a few minutes more from Podgorica Airport.

Locally, a system of buses with a flat rate of Eur1 and stopping anywhere on request provide a flexible way to travel. Reasonably priced red taxis are abundant.

Met and in most cases exceeded all expectations

  • 5 of 5

The house is everything we hoped for. It was clean, modern, spacious and ideal for two families. The owners could not have been more helpful before and during our stay answering our questions and providing everything we needed to find the house and the local area in general. There is a great shop 100m away fully stocked with all we needed food and drinks wise and more plus two amazing restuarants 2 minutes walk away in either direction. The local area, Kotor and the bay prided for spectacular scenerary and plenty to do when not lazing by the pool. Overall a wonderful house in a beautiful area made for a very special weeks holiday.

We really enjoyed our stay in Vila Boka. Villa is very cosy and well equipped. It cannot be closer to sea. You just accross the road and you can enter swimming. The village is lovely and all services are very close. It was also easy to book and you got all the answers immeadiatly from the owner.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We were holidaying with extended family and Villa Boka could not have been better. The location was perfect for exploring the national parks, local towns and cities and of course the incredible bay. We explored all of the villages on Kotor bay and felt that the Villa was in the best location. Beautiful but not too busy.

When at the Villa the combination of the pool and the sea meant that our little ones became little fish over the course of the fortnight.

With local shops and restaurants you could travel far or be perfectly content on the doorstep. The food in the local restaurants was fantastic but what we liked best was how child friendly they were. This meant that we could genuinely relax and enjoy our evenings.

The villa itself is amazing, the light and space are fantastic and the views are incredible. No one wanted to go home and the children keep asking if they can go back to their other house.

We could not fault the Villa or the communication from the owner and caretaker, it was all excellent. Thank you for a fantastic fortnight.

Lovely villa 10 mins from Kotor

  • 4 of 5

We visited Villa Boka in late October and enjoyed our visit to Montenegro. This was our first visit to the area and we were pleasantly surprised. The scenery is spectacular and there are plenty of day trips to do. The owners put together a super pack of local information.

The villa is around 20 mins drive from Tivat airport and about 10 mins drive from Kotor town. The villa is as described and well looked after. We didn't realise that the pool was unheated when we booked, so it was too cold to swim in during October but I imagine in the summer it's very pleasant.

The local area of Prcanj has a local grocery shops for day to day needs, then there's larger supermarkets in Kotor and other towns. There are several restaurants in Prcanj, some of which were still open in October and served good fish dishes.

We enjoyed days out to Port Montenegro, Ostrog monastry, walking the city walls in Kotor, the beautiful beach at Plavi Horizonti on the Lustice penisula, and the Lipci caves and Lovecen national park.

Prcanj is on the side of the bay that doesn't get the evening sun but you get to see the sun set on the mountains opposite and watch the cruise liners heading to and from Kotor. In October there was around 1 a day, it might get busier in the summer. When the boats are in Kotor gets very busy.

The owners were very helpful and easy to contact by email. There is wifi in the villa. Locally there is a lady who looks after the villa on the owners behalf and she was very helpful too.

We would recommend Villa Boka to anyone wanting to visit Prcanj.

Located in the beautiful, historic village of Prcanj and just 6 km from the stunning medieval walled city of Kotor (now a UNESCO World Heritage Site) with its lively cafes, markets, restaurants and thriving nightlife. In existence since 10th century, it boasts rich naval heritage, its architecture dating from the Venetian and Austro-Hungarian times as well as from the past two centuries.

Swim in the bay from your door-step or investigate by car or boat the magnificent Budva/ Sveti Stefan coast-line with its sandy beaches, rocky coves and islands.

Try kayaking or diving, mountaneering or sailing across the mysterious Lake Skadar.

Explore Boka Kotorska with its seafront towns and marinas and definitely sample the sea food!

Dubrovnik is under 2 hours drive with excellent flight connections and the open sea is 1/2 hour by car. Prcanj has restaurants, cafes and stores that open early and close late at night.

Or just enjoy the unparalleled views at hand in peace at the bay's widest.
