This exclusive and historic apartment is located within the ramparts of the splendid walled city of Kotor, Montenegro; the best preserved and certainly the most beautiful medieval town in the region.
The accommodation is ideally located close to the main square, restaurants, shops, cafes, beaches and the Marina. Kotor boasts year round interest and is well known for hosting numerous festivals. It is the main town in the Boka Bay region, sandwiched between the majestic Mount Lovcen and the sea. As one of the main tourist destinations in Montenegro; cruise ships arrive daily from around the world to its Marina, therefore it has a wealth of facilities for the visitor.
Kotor is an old medieval Sea front town with churches, museums, Venetian architecture and a cathedral which dates back to 1166. The town is a maize of cobbled streets and alleys with hidden squares and piazzas at every turn. Its beautiful marina, located just outside its fortress walls, hosts a daily market selling organic produce which in the evenings are replaced by stalls selling jewellery and trinkets, from here you can also watch the yachts and cruise ships sail in or take a boat trip yourself.
The bay of Kotor has the deepest fjords in the Mediterranean and is officially listed within the top 10 'most beautiful Bays in the World'. From within the Old Town are the steps up the Old Fortress which will reward you with some of the most stunning views of the bay. There are small beaches dotted around the bay or larger ones within a 10 minute drive or ferry trip, a vacation to remember.
The main square is a WiFi hotspot and due to the close proximity of the apartment to the square, internet access is available from within the apartment as well with the use of prepaid vouchers.
The Bay of Kotor is dotted with numerous small beaches from within a 10 minute walk away where swimming and sunbathing is possible. Larger beaches such as the beautiful Kaladovo beach is a 10 minute drive, alternatively there are boat trips available from the marina to some of the inaccessible bays and coves.
