Description

Le logement

This is the family holiday home that my grandparents built in early 1970s and I've spent many a happy summer there, as a child and now with my own family. My family and I live in the fabulous city of Brighton & Hove, UK but we try to spend as much time in our holiday home as my research job at the university and children's school allow us.

Over the recent years my father and I have completed the extensive refurbishment of the house and we wanted to share the beauty of our lovely holiday home and the stunning Boka Kotorska bay with others. I have been renting this house since 2006 and I had the pleasure to accommodate many nice families, some of whom fell in love with the place and became regular visitors.

The villa has a lovely spacious front garden and a terraced back garden, both with colourful oleanders and various Mediterranean bushes and flowers. The garden is perfect for sunbathing (sunbeds are provided) or for installing inflatable paddling-pools for children (not provided)! The house also has a large front terrace, which overlooks the garden and offers stunning views of the Bay of Kotor and the surrounding mountains. There is an additional 'morning terrace' - a wonderfully cool shaded area on the side of the house, perfect for enjoying the morning coffee.

The ground floor of the villa is open plan with a kitchen, dining and living area. The bathroom is also located on the ground floor. The dining room faces the back garden and has a large oval antique dining table which sits up to 6 people. The adjacent living area has a corner sofa with sofabed (sleeps 2). The living area opens onto the terrace which overlooks the front garden and the sea. The first floor has three bedrooms, two of which (one room with a king-size bed and one room with two single beds) face the back garden and the mountain, while the largest bedroom (with superking-size bed) has a balcony and overlooks the front garden and the sea. An additional toilet is situated on the first floor.

The property is equipped for winter rentals with airconditioning (heating) and electric radiators.Outdoor furniture (tables, chairs and sunbeds) as well as a barbecue are provided.

Towels and linen are included. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, cutlery, crockery, toaster, filter coffee maker, hand blenders etc. - as one of the guests commented, it's better equipped than his own kitchen at home! Big fridge/freezer, small cooker with an oven, pantry with lots of storage space. No microwave or dishwasher.

The house is cleaned before your arrival and after your departure. Cleaning during your stay can be arranged for an additional price of 35 euros. If you prefer to do your own cleaning during the stay, brushes, mops, vacuum cleaner, etc. are stored in the space underneath the stairs.
You are welcome to use the washing machine in the bathroom - the person letting you into will show you how!

Accès des voyageurs

Guests have the full use of the entire house and gardens.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

The neighbour who looks after the house and meets the guests is extremely helpful and goes out of her way to make our guests' stay as comfortable as possible. Most of our guests have commented on how friendly and helpful she and her family were!

Le quartier

Prcanj is a quiet village famous for its seafaring tradition and numerous medieval stone houses (palazzo) of well-off sailors and ship owners. There is a traditional restaurant/guesthouse 'Bokeljski Dvori' a two minute walk away from the house, offering excellent local cuisine at reasonable prices. The four-star hotel ‘Splendido’ is next to the beach and has an attractive pool-side bar and a renowned restaurant. The nearby town of Kotor is the oldest and most spectacular town in Montenegro. For centuries, it has been the crossroads of trade pathways between the East and the West, under the strong influence of Venice. It is protected by mountains and a strong defense structure built during the time of the Byzantine Empire. The Old Town of Kotor is UNESCO World Heritage site with numerous palaces, churches and museums hidden in a maze of cobbled lanes and squares. Today, the town offers restaurants, cafés, banks and cash machines, market (fresh fish, fruit, vegetables and other local delicacies), shops and supermarkets in an unrivalled setting. The majority of visitors come between April and October when the weather tends to be dry and sunny but the winter months also appeal to a number of people because of the mild climate and the beautiful setting. Apart from the stunning scenery, archaelogical and cultural sights, buzzing cafe culture and night-life, the main attraction of Kotor are its carnivals, the main ones being in February and at the beginning of August.

Transports

Having a car is not necessary to get around - local taxis are very cheap (we use Red Taxi or Djir Taxi - you'll find their numbers in the house) and there are regular buses between Kotor and other destinations. Most guests however hire a car and we always recommend that you hire a more compact car as that makes it much easier to drive along the narrow coastal road.
Please note that there is no parking at the property. However the person meeting you at the house will help you find suitable parking. Some of the locals have parking spaces for hire, usually about 3-5 euros per day.

Nearest Barpub : Nautica opposite Prcanj Marina. More bars in Kotor Nearest Ferry : Lepetane: ferry crossing to the other side of Bay at 15 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : 2 minutes walk from the house Nearest Beach : 2 minutes' walk from the house Car: not necessary
Special interest holidays:

Bay of Kotor as well as the near-by Budva riviera have several attractive spots for scuba-diving, including underwater caves and shipwrecks. The surrounding mountains are great for hiking and even bouldering although some parts are totally wild and not for the faint-hearted! If you do venture into the mountains (including the one above the house), try to do it in the afternoon shade to minimize your chances of encountering snakes! Since Montenegro is a very small country, even the furthermost mountain regions are only a few hours' drive away. Thus many visitors staying in the house decide to venture onto one- or two-day trips to the mountains (Durmitor, Bjelasica), where they can enjoy various activities, including white-water rafting, trekking, rock climbing and skiing during the winter. Lakes at the South of the country are a paradise for bird-watchers and all those who enjoy exploring unspoilt natural habitats.

Coast/Beach:

The nearest beach is a 3 minute walk downhill from the house. This pebbly beach has a gentle slope which is very popular with children and good for snorkeling! Some guests prefer to use the swimming pool at Hotel Splendido (next to the beach) - the hotel charges 5 euros per person per day (children go free) and the charge includes sunbeds and parasols. Sandy beaches ‘Plavi Horizonti’, ‘Jaz’, ‘Milocer’, ‘Przno’ and ‘Trsteno’ are all half an hour to one hour drive away.

Travel:

The house is easily accessible from international airports Tivat (15 min drive), Dubrovnik (about 2 h drive) and Podgorica (1.5 - 2 h drive). Airport transfer can be arranged (Dubrovnik & Podgorica: 60 euros; Tivat: 15 euros).British Airways and several low-cost companies (Easyjet, Thomsonfly and Wizzair) operate flights between London and Dubrovnik. Montenegro Airlines and JAT operate flights between London and Podgorica and Tivat and it is expected that Ryanair will start flying next year too.

Distances:

Kotor 4km, a 5 minute drive. Dubrovnik about 70km. Herceg-Novi about 40km. Island of Flowers (Ostrvo Cvijeca) boat tours from Kotor. Our Lady of The Rocks (Gospa od Skrpjela) church-island boat tours from Kotor. Lovcen - the second highest mountain in Montenegro, overlooking Kotor. Mausoleum of the famous 19th c. Montenegrin church leader, philosopher and poet Njegos is situated on the highest peak. Stunning views! (about 1 1/2 hr drive). Budva & St. Stefan 40-50km

Autres remarques

The house and the garden are perfect for a family with children (I used to love spending my summers there when I was a child and now my children love it too!), but there are several staircases in and around the house so one has to be careful with very young children. Unfortunately, having so many steps means that the property isn't wheelchair-friendly.

The house sleeps 6 people. We can accommodate up to 8 people (additional sleeping on the sofabed in the living room) only where there are 4 adults and 4 young children.


Règlement intérieur
L'entrée dans les lieux se fait entre 16:00 et 22:00

We love this place and hope you'll love it too. Please treat it as you would your own place!
We would really appreciate it though if you didn't smoke in the house. Smoking is of course OK on the terraces or in the gardens, just please dispose of the cigarette butts safely.
You'll find pretty much everything you need for a comfortable stay in the house: washing powder, cleaning stuff, shampoos etc. - just please replace anything that you use up. Some of our regular guests go as far as leaving some of their stuff in the cupboard (kids books, toys etc.) for their next visit.

****Please note that the Montenegrin tourist tax is not included in the rent and is charged at a rate of 0.80 euros per person per day (0.40 euros for each child aged 14 or more). This tax is payable in the tourist bureau in Kotor Old Town - you will find the map with the directions in our house and you'll have no problem finding it when you go to visit the Old Town (it's literally 1 minute walk from the main piazza).

One of the best places I had ever been! Very cosy villa with beautiful garden and magnificent sea view! It was so much pleasure to sit at the terrace having breakfast and looking the sea , mountains and cruise liners!)) And in the evening we usef to hsve barbeque there! The villa is well equiped, comfy and cosy! It is situated near Kotor and also there is small supermarket, cafe and restaurant nearby (in Summer also swimming pool in Splendido hotel). The host was very welcoming and nice, and even congratulated us with Easter, what was very pleasant))) and found a car parking for us. This place is like paradise and I recommend it to everybody! We will certainlu be back!!!)))))))

Such a good choice! Our taxi dropped us at Hotel Splendido and Vesna was there within moments to show us the little path up to the villa. Outside the villa is even better than the photo; a garden with lawn, shrubs, a green hedge all around, and 2 sunbeds. Up a few steps the terrace has solid wood table & chairs, and that view! The side terrace also has nice seating. Front terrace gets sun from early morning and it's possible to chase sun or shade most of the day. We enjoyed a nightcap on the upstairs balcony with a view of the lights of the old town reflected in the sea. Indoors is as described and photos; a lived in family home with everything you need. Sitting area with TV and DVD leads to spacious dining area and alcove kitchen. It's a little tight at the 2-ring stove/oven but with cupboards crammed with pots pans, crockery and glassware, there’s everything you need for cooking (for warm nights there's the bbq outside). A teapot would be nice. You’ll find useful bits and bobs left by previous guests in kitchen and bathroom. Jelena's system suggesting that you replace anything you finish is a good idea when guests join in. We couldn’t find any of Jelena’s stock of coffee filters and shops didn’t have any so you might want to take some with you. Jelena re-stocks when she visits. The bedrooms were fine (we only used the front bedroom), comfy bed, and great to have fly screens at the windows. There’s a toilet/washroom upstairs and full bathroom downstairs. The hand-held shower mixer was easy to get water to right temperature and a good pressure. Useful bathroom design has large mirrors both at the sink and a second vanity unit so if you have a larger group you can do multiple hair drying / make up. The light bulbs over the vanity unit need replacing and we’ve mentioned this, and cleaning was a bit sketchy. We felt really at home, comfortable and relaxed in the house, enjoyed the facilities indoors and out, and great views. Wish we’d had longer than a week. We really recommend the house and location. Jelena is so helpful; she was in touch with helpful information before we travelled and gave us contact details in case we had questions while on holiday. Villa Nesic is at the start of Pracanj, handy for Kotor but away from the crowds that gather in the Old Town. Stroll towards the centre of Pracanj and there are more mini markets, and some seafront cafe/restaurants. In the evening the cruise ship crowds had left Kotor and it was pretty and peaceful for drinks or a meal.

The house is in the beautiful part of the world. It has breath taking views. It is in the small village with mixture of holiday and locally occupied houses. We were greeted with the key by a very friendly and helpful neighbour. She didn't speak any English, but it didn't seem to matter. The house has a spacious garden in the front and is terraced in the back. It is accurately described on the website. Feels friendly, comfortable and you can see the owners personal touch in the many poster prints and decorations. It could benefit from a new cooker.

We recently spent a weekend at Jelena’s villa as part of a longer roadtrip in the region. What to say..? Simply put, we really enjoyed staying at her place, it was a delight and I recommend it without hesitation. It is clear that the house is a beloved family holiday home; it is cosy, decorated with warmth, and is very well-equipped. The space is generous and was spotlessly clean when we arrived. The room in which we stayed was super comfortable, with an outstanding view across the bay and to the mountains. So beautiful! As it was February, we didn’t hang out in the gardens so much but they are also lovely and we really enjoyed taking morning coffee (and sun!) on the terrace which faces the lake. If you want to go out for dinner, the house is a short but cheap taxi ride away from Kotor. Kotor itself is great: the old town has an interesting history and is really beautiful. We also ate very well here, in both restaurants and cafes. Aside from that we hiked up the old city walls and into the mountains a bit, and were rewarded with more stunning views. We’ll definitely be back, hopefully for longer next time!

Réponse de Jelena :
Thanks for the review Sophie - really glad you guys enjoyed your stay. Yes, you should definitely come to visit again one summer as you'd be able to experience and enjoy the Bay of Kotor in a completely different way. From the stunning wintry landscape of dark greens, grays and black-blues, all immersed in silence occasionally broken by seagulls' cries, the whole place is transformed into bright greens, parched yellows and green-blues mixed with bright pinks, oranges and yellows, all shimmering in tune with the typical Mediterranean soundscape. And of course you'll be able to swim in the warm sea (not lake, although it does look like it!). :)

My family and I live in the fabulous city of Brighton & Hove, UK but we try to spend as much time in our holiday home in Montenegro as our work and children's school allow us!

Our family holiday home was built by my grandparents in early 1970s and I've spent many a happy summer there, as a child and now with my own family. Over the recent years my father and I have completed the extensive refurbishment of the house and we wanted to share the beauty of our lovely holiday home and the stunning Boka Kotorska bay with others. I have been renting this house in Montenegro since 2006 and I had the pleasure to accommodate many nice families, some of whom fell in love with the place and became regular visitors.

We have recently started renting a room in our lovely flat situated in a Regency road right in the heart of Brighton & Hove. We hope to welcome many guests and help them explore this wonderful city by the sea, directing them to our favourite cafes, restaurants, pubs, clubs and event venues.
