Villa Branko is a genuine home-from-home, infused with the personal spirit and style of a family home for over 100 years, given a luxury uplift. Crafted with care in original stone, this unique dwelling blends the best of old and new, together with sublime outdoor spaces for a memorable abode, emanating personality, designer verve and faithful to the charm of local Montenegrin style.

Set down its own private road, a little apart from the pretty town nestled on the Bay of Kotor, this home boasts beautiful gardens comprising 2.5 acres of land fragrant with plants and herbs, and views of the glittering bay. Eight guests can be accommodated across three bedrooms in the two storey main house and the separate studio flat (with the additional option of two double sofa beds.)

Stepping out into the grounds, and guests will note how they’ve been executed with stylish al fresco living in mind, with a stunning pool set in an elegant terrace overlooking the sparkling bay, while for outdoor movie nights, there’s a cinema screen, together with chic dining pergola and barbecue. Enjoying a leisurely breakfast on one of the pool side loungers, or reclining in the hammock under the shade will see guests ease into the pace of this home. With an array of different spots for enjoying the views, dining, and with every thoughtful gesture in place for guests’ comfort, from games of darts, boules and table tennis, to charming stone-built outdoor kitchen, this spot is hard to leave.

The interiors at Villa Branko emanate modern-rustic style, renovated with quality finishes, remaining true to the original building, together with natural timber beams and exposed thick stone walls. Cleverly designed to optimise light, the low-key design features every fitting for a seamless stay, from high-quality kitchen to stylish timber dining set. Open plan living is finessed with charisma and designer flair, with a cosy backdrop featuring comfortable, minimal yet chic styling with neutral tones and elegant furnishings.

Each of the bedrooms are simple, stylish and serene; with unfussy design, they simply feature the best quality linen, restful understated design. With a separate studio, there is the option for grandparents or a nanny to have their own accommodation.

Villa Branko is an impeccably designed local style home imbibing everything that is Montenegrin, while offering a luxury upgrade within a space where care and attention to detail mean every little comfort has been taken care of.

Villa Branko is nestled in the historical heart of the Bay of Kotor, home to the UNESCO world heritage town of Kotor. The old town is within walking distance while a short drive will take guests to the rest of the bay. Set behind the dwelling, guests can access nature trails into the mountains, from which they will be able to enjoy spectacular views as far as the Tivat region. The ‘Ladder of Kotor’ is one of the best known trails for walkers in the region.

With the beaches and town centre all within a few minutes drive, this home offers a hassle free base from which to slow the pace and escape the crowds.

The Bay of Kotor offers a compelling mix of medieval charm, Venetian architecture, old-town style, local eateries and pretty water side promenades, leaving last memories in an area steeped with history and old-world charm. The Old Town offers guests a little window into the original way of life with narrow cobbled lanes.

Close by Perast is a must-see, offering preserved baroque stone palaces, its notably high bell tower and postcard pretty squares. Its elegant water front offers a graceful promenade setting, whilst at Perast’s centre is a palm lined square facing St. Nicholas Church. Boating and boat trips are part of the local way of life, while the two mysteriously picturesque islands are a must-visit when in the Bay of Kotor. St George, (home to a Benedictine abbey) and Our Lady of the Rocks (the only man-made island in the Adriatic dating from 1452) are laden with history and local flavour.

Discovering this stunning bay will see history lovers in their element - it is dotted with atmospheric medieval towns (remnants from its Venetian era), island monasteries, cobbled lanes and pretty waterfront restaurants. UNESCO-listed since 1979, the Bay of Kotor is one of the Adriatic’s hidden gems.

About the Region & Getting There

About the Bay of Kotor

The Bay of Kotor, or Boka, has been a World Heritage Site since 1979, so be assured of its captivating scenery that includes; a Venetian old town, a Fortress, Roman Mosaics, churches and a glistening cove that all culminate to provide guests with an exceptional holiday destination.

Sailing through the fjord you will notice the Orjen Mountains along the west, and the Lovćen Mountain range curling around the east, which outline this spellbinding landscape. As you enter through the bay you are greeted by a man-made islet that is home to Our Lady of the Rocks Church and a museum. This is the first of many reminders that you are about to reach a region of Montenegro that is famed for its natural scenery and poignant architecture.

The Bay of Kotor is made up of four cornerstones - Lastva, Morinj, Stoliv and the most renowned Tivat. Within these villages you are able to find iconic landmarks such as St Petka Church and St Mary’s Church, or for something a little less pious; simply enjoy Tivat Marina and Gornji Stoliv’s Olive grove & Fig orchard.

Travel inland and strap on a pair of hiking boots as you explore Lovcen National Park. Although it is about an hours drive from the Bay, it really is worth the day trip! Whether you’re travelling with a Botanists, Ecologist, Entomologist or Zoologist; they will be pleased to know that there’s an immeasurable number of species that include birds, insects, bears, wolves and some breath-taking flora & fauna.

We urge holidaymakers to make the most of Kodor! This charming town has everything you need to forget the day-to-day tribulations of home life. Not only does this small medieval refuge have a host of cafes & restaurants, but there are some must see attractions like the Maritime Museum, the Cats Museum of Kotor, Cats of Kotor Shop and St. John’s Hill. The perfect retreat for a family in need of sun, sea & sentiment.

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Villa Branko is excellently set up with the needs of children in mind. With 2.5 acres of land, a sizeable pool, home cinema, outdoor kitchen and abundant space together with games and all the contemporary touches, the whole family will enjoy a seamless stay, in tranquillity with additional conveniences such as chef prepared meals.

The beaches in and around Kotor (ten minutes drive) offer a mix of sand and shingle for children to enjoy and discover, while little history enthusiasts will be in their element with the medieval churches and monasteries to explore. Taking a walk around the city walls in Kotor finished up with an ice cream in one of the pretty square makes for a great afternoon. Little walkers will enjoy the trails around the bay, while taking a family boat trip out to one of the islands will be a true adventure for little ones.

Montenegrins are known to be very family minded, and children are welcome in restaurants and out and about, although the cobbled streets can be a challenge with a stroller!

  • Amazing!

    on 04/09/2020

    Amazing spot overlooking the old town. stunning pool and terrace. really quiet spot perfect for a relaxing holiday - we had a great time

  • Super Peaceful

    on 16/07/2019

    The villa is comfortable with nice pool area and beautiful view. Peaceful neighborhood, great place for relaxing and having fun with the family.

  • The surrounding area is Beautiful

    on 04/06/2019

    Beautiful place in a very good location. The house and the surrounding was excellent. Recommended for families with kids.

  • An awesome place to visit

    on 23/07/2018

    Our stay at Villa Branko was wonderful in every way. The house and pool are beautiful and Linja took great care of us. Kotor was an awesome place to visit. Our group included 3 kids, ages 3, 4, and 6 and two couples. We hired a sail boat for the day to get a lay of the land and spent a day at Amara Beach Club. Both days were awesome. Other than that, we spent lots of time by the pool (and walking down the road to jump into Kotor Bay). The only negative for our group with young kids is that the driveway is steep so it wasn't easy for our kids to go up and down the driveway on foot.

  • Couldn't recommend this place more.

    on 22/05/2017

    From the moment of booking until check out, our hosts were an absolute pleasure. The house was everything we imagined and more. It was super clean, gorgeous, well-equipped, and just a dream! Miro and Lidija, who live close by, were always available for any questions and assistance. They were awesome! We even booked a day boat excursion through them that was so worth it, and one of the best activities of the trip. The pool terrace and view were so stunning that we even had our intimate wedding ceremony there. I couldn't recommend this place more. We were 8 adults and a baby living here for a week, and were all comfortable and thrilled with the experience!!
