This is in addition to the private parking enjoyed by visitors to the apartment, and all within 5 minutes walk of the water.
Although the flat itself is child friendly, the bay area is surrounded by mountains, and as such there are stairs down from the carpark to the building, and from the building to the waterfront that may be a challenge for those with pushchairs or mobility problems. That said, we are happy to accommodate families with young children if you are happy with the stairs!
The Coastal Montenegro region
To quote the Lonely Planet, "At the head of southern Europe's deepest fjord, Kotor's setting couldn't be more dramatic. The fortified Stari Grad (Old Town) nestles at the foot of a high cliff and its labyrinthine streets surprise you with bars, churches and restaurants on hidden piazzas. Brooding mountains protect the whole bay and the sea is a moody indigo blue."
Montenegro is definitely the undiscovered 'Pearl of the Adriatic', and Kotor, as a Unesco World heritage site, is its jewel in the crown. Seven islands decorate the bay, and enjoying the views over a glass of vino is a must, whether in one of the many piazzas of the old town, or in one of the beautiful restaurants that surround the bay.
There are many small beaches within a 15 min drive on the Adriatic coast. Or drive in land to enjoy the mountain ranges, canyons, forests, and one of the largest lakes in Europe. There are also plenty of activities to keep you busy; white water rafting, canoeing, paragliding, mountain climbing / biking, sailing and trips in a Flying Inflatable Boat (!) are all available in the area.
The Climate is the same as Southern Italy, so can be enjoyed all year round. Whilst the "season" is considered to be May to September, the other months are cooler and less crowded so can be just as enjoyable. The currency is Euro.
Kotor is a historic city of traders and sailors, and its medieval architecture and cultural monuments have made Kotor an Unesco listed "World Natural and Historical Site". Its narrow cobbled streets twist and turn, and constantly provide a hidden treasure to be discovered. The Old Town is traffic free, and can be both peaceful and lively; enchanting & bustling by day with its array of cafes, restaurants and shops; romantic by evening, and lively at night ,with plenty of bars to visit. Regular carnivals and fiestas also add to the charm of this beautiful, walled town.
There are also many beautiful villages and towns to visit, all within less than an hours drive. There is Sveti Stefan, the choice resort for the rich and famous; Perast, the unspoilt, venetian town overlooking the picuresque monastery of Gospa od Škrpjela (Our Lady of the Rock), set on its own island; or Budva, the racier, vibrant town right on the beach.
Or if you perfer to stay local, you could stroll along the waterfront and admire the yachts, take a boat trip or take part is the many watersports on offer. Or, just find yourself a quiet jetty and soak up the sun!
