The Coastal Montenegro / Boka Kotorska Fjord region
Montenegro is a hidden gem of a country. Little known as a tourist destination, it is a small country of extraordinary beauty; vast mountains, inland lakes and beautiful beaches. Ancient walled towns and small stone villages untouched by the passage of time crowd along the waters edges. UNESCO protected Kotor Old Town sits at the far end of the dramatic Bay of Kotor, which is surrounded by mountains.
The Kotor area
Often dubbed a 'mini-Dubrovnik' because of its elegant Venetian architecture, Kotor has traffic-free marble tiled narrow streets opening up onto bustling squares where you can sit outside one of the many cafes, enjoy a drink and watch the world go by. The clean sea is close by, with both swimming platforms along the edge of the bay, and sandy and pebbled beaches close by. Larger beaches along the Adriatic coast are from a 15 minute drive away.
Kotor is host to many festivals and concerts throughout the year, making it a great year-round destination, both for holidays and short breaks. It is a buzz at night with a range of bars and restaurants and makes an exciting and different destination for New Year celebrations.

Kotor is a fantastic little town to stay - bustling but easy to get around. Even out of season there were some lovely little bars and restaurants to eat in. The location of the apartment is so easy too - you can just nip downstairs to get fresh bread/croissants in the morning! Despite there being a bar immediately under the apartment, we never actually went there (too close to home?), but had heard that it could be noisy sometimes - yet when we were there, it was only playing music till late once. For self catering, there are small but well stocked supermarkets nearby where you can get pretty much anything you need, too.
It is easy access to the coast - which is well worth a visit, especially some of the little old towns - and there are some great walks in the mountains above Kotor, too (although be prepared to get lost if you go anywhere other than the main walk up to the fort, as there are no decent maps!) LAke Skadar, on the border with Albania, is also worth a visit for some lovely walks. Be warned, you can't take your car through into Albania without additional insurance though, so we stayed the Montenegrin side.
The apartment itself is very well equipped and very comfortable. We had no problems with anything, so had no cause to contact the agent at all. There's also plenty of information on places to go in the apartment, left by the owner and previous visitors, but it is also not far from a tourist information booth at the entrance to the town anyway.
Overall, a fantastic place to visit and a thoroughly enjoyable break!

I had never been to Kotor, had never heard of it until July 2011. A friend from Russia told me about it. It was a long trip from Phoenix, Arizona USA but well worth it. The plane touched down in... more
