The Coastal Montenegro region
Montenegro was once the Adriatic's answer to St. Tropez. The beautiful coastline attracted film stars such as Marilyn Monroe,
Sophia Loren, and Elizabeth Taylor.Unfortunately the Balkan conflict of the late 1990's caused tourism to cease and it has taken a long time to recover. Once again the pristine beaches, Venetian settlements backed by densely forested peaks and valleys are drawing the tourists back. The casino in the James Bond movie " Casino Royale "was set there.
The coast feels like a cross between Croatia and the Amalfi coast in Italy and driving along the wide coast road you can view the spectacular scenery ,the road dipping past the walled city of Budva ( a mini-Dubrovnik ) pops in and out of a few tunnels ( a la Michael Caine in " The Italian Job " ) then passes a lovely little island anchored to the sandy shore by a narrow isthmus.
This is Sveti Stefan ; barnacled with red-tiled cottages ,famous from a thousand postcards and recently reopened as a 47-room luxury hotel. This is visible in the far-distance from the balcony in the apartment !.
In 1872 Lord Byron described the coastal region of the Gulf of Kotor as" the most beautiful encounter between land and the sea " and it retains all it's poetic romance.
Montenegro is a bird watcher's paradise and the mountains inland offer the opportunity to spot eagles,buzzards and several other birds of prey.If you head down to Lake Skadar there you will find the great white egret ,pygmy cormorant and even the Dalmatian pelican.There is so much variety in this country that space prohibits me from telling you more. There is only the obvious thing to do ,come over and see for yourself !!!
Becici is the central town of the " Budva Riviera " with easy access to Budva ( 10 mins by car or 30 mins walk ) ,an elegant mix of the
modern ( the 5* Hotel Splendid where the Rolling Stones stayed when they played here ) and the historic ( the old walled centre where you find charming shops and churches huddled on close-knit streets ). Outside you find a surprisingly swanky marina and a delightful nest of cafes and shops. This is also the best place for night life.
Venturing south you pass the picture perfect Sveti Stefan -now taken over as a luxurious hotel complex. Further south is pretty Przno with two of my favourite restaurants on the bay side.
Becici beach ( 400 metres from the apartment ) provides space for sunbathing and local walks , boat hire to explore the bays and caves ,snorkelling ,para gliding ( you often see the gliders flying down to the bay ) ,and even trips to the Tara canyon for white water rafting.
For tennis fans there are public tennis courts in front of the apartments.
