“Montenegro- the place to be” Great, clean equipped spacious villa ideal with two teenagers who had their own self-contained studio. Never did any cooking though apart from breakfast as the food was soooo cheap to eat out and fabulous to sit eating a lovely meal listening to the waves lapping the shore surrounded by stunning scenery.
Jan the proprietor has another property close to Meljine-which is lovely and within walking distance of the beach though you wouldn't have the beautiful views/sunsets from the sun terrace or the lovely sheltered terrace out of the sun in a morning that you have at Villa Killara.
Although the pool was a little smaller than we expected we had great fun playing Volleyball and it was nice to cool down in. There is a lovely seating area and BBQ though we never got a chance to use it
You can park up in Igalo 50-70cents an hour and walk all the way along the front which is lovely. Or hire a couple of sun lounges-from as little as ten euro often with waiter service and cool down/ swim in the lovely clear blue waters. Jan arranged a night in the mountains where we went white water rafting, river a little tame unlike the drive up there, (Montenegrins enjoy overtaking on blind bends) but the scenery was amazing. Stayed in a quaint villa and though the lady could speak no English she was truly lovely though I think she would have supplied us with food and drink forever.
The bay is beautiful and the walk up the ramparts at Kotor a must. Tivat marina worth a visit to see the amazing boats. Had a nice trip down to Budva, the old town very quaint, little bit more expensive, very lively but preferred to be staying in the bay. A day trip on a boat to the blue cave and Cejine beach a great day out (9 euros each) but very hot so save for the second week or cream up well. The food in the restaurants was of a good standard and similar price (around 40-50 euro including drinks for family of 4). Kids loved the meat and chips and especially the ice cream at 50cents!! Not ideal if you’re a vegetarian though, you may have to live on salads, pizza and pasta. Seafood was lovely especially the black/red risotto. Oh and their draft beer great at around 1euro 80 cents
All in all we had a truly wonderful family break and our kids who are14 & 17 had a great time too. Jan & Nick – thank you you were great hosts- nice to have that personal touch as you never know when booking direct.
Montenegro is a little gem of a place and long may it remain that way.
