Montenegro has so much to offer, from its breath-taking scenery and coastline, to its historic towns and sights.

Villa Karnela is located on a hillside in the breath-taking Bay of Kotor. The closest town is Rose, an old settlement located at the entrance to the Bay of Kotor, on the Luštica peninsula. Considered to be the oldest settlement in the Bay of Kotor, this charming area offers a little insight into the history of the Bay. Foreign and domestic ships would have been supplied with food from the harbour and it is suggested that at one time there was even a customs zone for entrance to the area.

Now, Rose is recognisable for the large Austro-Hungarian fortress Forte Rose, which plays host to a diving centre. So, whether you are a beginner or an experienced diver, the location is perfect! Boat trips and snorkelling are equally popular, with guests taking every opportunity to explore this beautiful coastline. The Blue Cave is just 8km from the villa itself, it is the largest of many sea caves on Luštica Peninsula. Named for the way the light hits the sandy bottom and reflects up through the water makes the whole cave look blue, a wonder not to be missed!

Rose gets the longest sunshine hours in the entire area, and we cannot think of a bigger selling point than that! With its various terraces and outdoor living spaces, Villa Karnela takes full advantage of the sunshine, with spectacular views across the Bay for you to enjoy under the warm sun. There is even an outdoor bed so you can sleep under the star-lit night sky!

A thirty-minute drive will bring you to the Old Town of Kotor. The cobblestone streets, historic churches and dramatic fortresses of Kotor Old Town are magical and well worth exploring. You cannot park in the Old Town itself, so it is best to plan out your trip beforehand, stopping at some more beaches and sights along the way! The coastal road offers breath-taking scenery across the Bay, with plenty of spots to stop and take photos along the way!

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

The stunning scenery and location of this beautiful villa are sure to impress kids and adults alike! With five bedrooms, a large group of eighteen guests can come together and enjoy some quality time and celebrations away from the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life, soaking in the sunshine, revelling in the beaches, and making the most of every minute in this gorgeous property. Perfect for weddings, renewals of vows and festivities, Villa Karnela offers something special, for events that will never be forgotten.

The accommodation is split across several levels which gives families their own space to entertain and look after younger kids. Of course, a baby cot and highchair can be provided for convenience, and there is plenty to space to bring all the bits you need to make your stay as comfortable as possible! There is one bedroom with three bunkbeds, so six children can share, which we are sure siblings, cousins and friends will love!

Both inside and out, there is plenty of space to run and play, with an amazing private swimming pool where they can play and splash about. A range of pebbly and sandy beaches are spread along the Bay of Kotor, with water sports and boat trips that you can all enjoy as a family.

A short drive will bring you to an array of restaurants and cafes. Most of the restaurants are all family friendly, with plenty of menu choices that kids will love. On the menus, there are seafood, meat and vegetarian dishes, and there is always something new to taste.  We recommend they try some of the Montenegrin classics such as Punjene Paprike - stuffed peppers, or Gulaš - a hearty stew served with mashed potato. Borek, a flaky savory pastry is beloved by kids of all ages, and it can be found in the famous bakeries all over town.

For a day trip, the Old Town of Kotor is fascinating for kids, with ancient building and fortresses to explore, and plenty of sweet treat stop offs on the way round. There is no parking in Kotor centre, so it is best to find a parking spot as near as possible, so you can spend your energy exploring the higgledy-piggledy streets, rather than walking to them!
