Villa Kotop is a stylishly restored dwelling artfully blending the best of old and new with extensive landscaped gardens and dazzling sea views, offering a serene oasis for six guests.

This home embodies simple elegance and understated grandeur together with rustic charm and an Italianate influence with opulent layers of garden, set against the shrub-thick hills behind the Bay of Kotor. Crafted in local stone, the villa is brimming with local flavour and natural timber internally, while offering guests extra touches of luxury lending an indulgent note to this chic abode.

Set within its own privately gated grounds fragrant with olive trees, the outdoor spaces are stylishly executed with al fresco living in mind, from the dappled shade provided by the trellis-covered pergola, to the stone courtyards, charming Juliet balcony, terraces with panoramic views and pool side lounge area. The villa uses a water irrigation system that purifies water used by guests in order to feed the lush gardens. Therefore, you can enjoy the laid-back vibe of this space and absorb the surrounding scenery knowing you've helped Mother Nature!

Set across two buildings, the first house comprises a living room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom and one bedroom. The second house is set across two storeys with two bedrooms as well as a living room, dining room, kitchen, and leads directly to the wonderful terrace.

Taking this property a level apart are the lavish touches, from a state-of-the-art gym, to surround sound music, to flat screen smart televisions to the turbo-jet pool complete with Jacuzzi. Likewise, guests can enjoy the leisure of an on-hand concierge service, whether it be for tours or bookings. There’s a fully equipped games room with ping pong, while everything is in place for entertainment, parties and group time, whether it be a pool party rocking the sound system, or a more sedate set-up simply absorbing the tranquillity of the spot and the rustic environment.

The interiors at Villa Kotop are airy and light-filled, with a farmhouse feel together with timber beams and exposed stone, hitting the right note between home-like and luxurious.  A large open-plan living space in the studio sets the scene for group time, while the kitchen offers open-plan food preparation and sociable potential, together with a large dining area for lively dinners. 

The bedrooms offer restorative calm, unfussy and neutral decor and quality linen. The two storey building has a full height barn-like interior, with a vaulted ceiling and subtle restoration faithful to the original building. A low-key air of understated luxury emanates, together with abundant local materials, gorgeous living spaces and a unique feel with timber clad open staircase creating a mezzanine effect.

Villa Kotop is brimming with personality and unique charm, blending within its local surroundings, while offering extra layers of luxury and comfort to ensure a seamless stay on the coast of Montenegro.

Villa Kotop is set in the rolling hills overlooking the sea, equidistant between Tivat and Kotor (both 7km distance), while Budva is 16 kilometres away.

While Kotor is steeped in history, Tivat draws a jet-set crowd with its marina full of super yachts and high-class promenade. Although Tivat has grown from a modest town to something more ritzy, there are traces of history to be found whilst the beach at Plavi Horizonti and the island of Sv. Nikola are must-sees. 

For hiking, mountain biking, or canyon exploration, the Vrmac mountain that overlooks Tivat promises adventure Snorkeling in the Blue Cave is an ideal sport for water lovers - reachable by boat, while a visit to the fortified island of Mamulaa offers beautiful sunsets.

Discovering this stunning bay around Kotor 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. 

Kotor Old Town is a myriad of old buildings and narrow cobbled lanes. Visitors will be able to take a leisurely boat trip to explore the two picturesque islands; St George, (home to a Benedictine abbey) and Our Lady of the Rocks (the only man-made island in the Adriatic dating from 1452.) 

This region offers a dazzling stretch of coast, offering serene boat trips, mysterious islands, historical charm and wonderful hiking trails.

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.

Prior to Booking

As many of our regions in Montenegro are coastal, there can sometimes be some adverse weather. This tends to only really occur outside of the Peak Season though. When thinking about booking your holiday to Montenegro, please consult Foreign travel advice for more information.

Entry Requirements

Tourists who are British Citizens will not require a visa upon arrival, unless their stay lasts longer than 90 days. Please check Entry Requirements before departure.

Getting ThereSveti Stefan, Bar & Ulcinj are served by Tivat Airport and Podgorica Airport. Please note that Tivat is a smaller International Airport, which can experience overcrowding in Peak Season. Due to its proximity to Orjen & Lovćen Mountains, flights are sometimes re-directed to Podgorica Airport or cancelled in the case of bad weather.

From the UK:
Direct flights are available from London on Montenegro Airlines, easyJet, TUI, Ryanair and many others. Chartered flights are also available from several other UK airports.

From Dubrovnik, Croatia:
Connecting flights are available from Dubrovnik Airport to Podgorica Airport.

By Bus:
GetByBus operates from Dubrovnik, Tivat and Podgorica to Sveti Stefan, Bar & Ulcinj. Journeys can take up to 4 hours and 45 minutes.

Kids

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

Villa Kotop is ideal for families, with an outdoor play area, a large games room with ping pong and children’s toys, together with all the contemporary touches such as flat screen televisions. 

Tivat has a few children’s play parks, while the quay at Budva is a lovely stroll with little ones. The beaches in and around Kotor offer an array of choice from pebbles to sand. Taking a walk around the city walls in Kotor will be a great afternoon’s energy busting activity, finished up with an ice cream in one of the pretty squares. 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.

Montenegrins are very family minded, and children are welcome in restaurants and out and about, although the mountain terrain and cobbled streets mean accessibility isn’t always effortless, however taxis are relatively easy and affordable.

    on 21/07/2022

    We had an amazing stay at Villa Kotop! The property is beautiful with stunning views over the bay. We loved the pool and jacuzzi. The owners were so helpful and welcoming and very quick to respond to questions. We had an accident in our hire car and the owner's son even called the hire company for us and struck a deal, which was much appreciated! Overall, just a perfect stay and we would definitely come again

  • Exceptional

    on 25/06/2021

    It was our first visit to Montenegro and property was above our expectations by 200% at least. Our hosts were absolutely amazing, being in touch 24/7.
    Location:
    Perfect for families with Kids and a group of travellers. You can easily get by car to Kotor (12 min) , Tivat (8 min) , Budva (20 min), as well as some more remote cities and places of interest (30 to 50 min of drive). Rent or own car would be a benefit. Driving is easy and safe. A lot of supermarkets and bakery shops on the pisturesque main road. The property has Google maps tag, but once you get there you will easily find the way without a map.
    Property:
    Represented by 2 independent houses with private entrances, kitchens and living rooms with bedrooms. The 1st house has 2 bedrooms, the 2nd One is with bedroom and big sofa, which might be used as an additional bed.
    There are 3 separate terraces and pool area to spent time in. BBQ area is fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy cooking on the open fire.
    Facilities:
    Very clean! Comfortable beds and pillows.
    The pool is clean and has a beautiful view. There are 6 sun beds around the pool and Bar area with fridge.

  • We will surely be back!

    on 22/10/2019

    I highly recommend this beautiful Villa, located in the countryside but still very close to Kotor and Tivat. It looks even better than on the photos! The owners were so helpful giving us useful information on the places to visit, they organized transfers for us and welcomed us with wines, fruits, juices and sweets....

  • An Astonishing Stay

    on 16/10/2019

    A great stay in a great location. Conveniently located to Kotor, Tivat and Porto Montenegro

  • Great!

    on 29/08/2019

    The house is very comfortable and has everything. Tthe pool is very good, as well as the gym and table tennis.

    Car hire is suggested and there are traffic jams in the towns.

  • A truly stunning villa, highly recommend with exceptional Owners

    on 05/08/2019

    The Hosts were there to welcome us on arrival and gave us a guided tour of this amazing villa. Part renovated and new build the property has some really interesting features; no one could really get tired of this place. (one of our regrets is not having dinner in the wine cellar!)

    The kids had so much choice; they loved the pool, table tennis and gym. The villa is well equipped in all ways, big enough to find a quiet space, a choice of kitchens fully stocked to cook in and the wifi great for family, but more importantly work and skype meetings!

    There were so many extra touches that made it even more fabulous, wine, food, slippers and gowns to name just a few!

    Jelena kept in touch giving valuable advise and information on activities and places of interest throughout our stay, even going out of her way to sort out the tourist tax for us. Thank you.

    Goran was especially helpful as we had a car accident the first day, and he insisted to help with obtaining the police report for insurance purposes. (So helpful, and put our minds at rest as we did not understand a word of what was being said during the incident.)

    We had a truly wonderful time and would highly recommend this villa easily 5**
