Old Captains house Dobrota
About the home
This fabulous waterfront 2 bedroom property, ground floor of old stone house has been completely renovated and refurbished to the highest western standards. It is only 5 metres from the glistening Adriatic sea and has its own punta for a boat. It is only a beautiful 8 min walk along the bay, past the boats and yachts to the amazing historical old town of Kotor, and you will immediately see why it is a UNESCO world heritage site.
The property features old stone throughout. There is a fantastic large gated sun terrace, partially shaded by a kiwi vine in the day and fully lit at night for those family evening meals, get together and of course entertaining friends. Listen to the enchanting sound of the sea as you barbecue.
Apartment purchased by us for our young family, because of the location, the people and the pace of life. Originally we were only considering purchasing in Montenegro purely for investment, but when we saw this, we immediately fell in love. Trust us, seeing is believing!
Only 5 metres to the sea in front of the apartment with ideal swimming areas for children as well as adults. Dobrota has the most hours of sun on the bay, ideal for those evening swims and then back to the terrace for a refreshing drink!

The Coastal Montenegro / Boka Kotorska Fjord region
Montenegro is located in South-Eastern Europe. It used to be a well known tourist destination in the 1970's - 1980's however, due to the war, its tourist industry ceased and only recently picked up again. The world famous Sveti Stefan, which was the playground of the rich and famous in the 1970s, including Richad Burton, Elizibeth Taylor, Brigitte Bardot etc, is approximately 20 to 25 min drive away. Its culture is shaped by a variety of influences throughout history.
Montenegro has numerous cultural and historical sites, including heritage sites which are all well worth a visit.

Dobrota is one of the most beautiful locations on the bay and we are ony mins walk to the old town. There are beautiful restaurants, especially for seafood lovers, with fresh produce caught that day. Kotor Old Town approx 8 mins walk away along the bay. Budva and Beccici approx 15 to 20 mins drive away.
Very well known Ellas restaurant only a min walk away. Local bakery and supermarket approx 2 mins away. Banks in Kotor Old Town. A number of marinas, yacht hire and sailing lessons within mins. Also there are diving schools only mins away. Other restaurants dotted along the seafront.
Within the walls of the old town there are many excellent restaurants and coffee shops. You can spend many hours discoverng all the historical treasures within the old town. Having been ruled by the Venetians for a period, it is very similar to walking through parts of Venice, with is Cathederals palaces etc etc.

I stayed here in April of this year. I enjoyed my week stay ,starting from the amazing journey from the airport to House , taking in the wonderful mountain and sea views. An area which hasn't changed much in a few hunderd years but still has the availability of any modern need which you may want.
The property is nestled in beautifully at the foot of the mountain with the sea an extension of your front garden . Having the stunning old town only 15mins walk away. The property has been masterfully restored back to its orginal state with all the mod cons.
I highly recommend this holiday destination to you!

Amazing,Tranquil, Relaxing Holiday
Just what we needed.
Perfect setting waking up every morning to the water only feet from your door.The casual stroll to the local bakery for breakfast croissants , sitting on the waters edge drinking morning coffee and fresh croissants....Fabulous.
Ideal for anyone who wants a chilled out holiday. Great food, nice wine , stunning views with lots of well preserved medieval Architecture. (no need for taxis can walk everywhere)
Forget about the impersonal 5 Star hotels you will get more out of a one nights stay here than a week in a big brand name Hotel.
Can't wait to go back in 2012
