My husband and I, along with our 2-year son enjoyed a fantastic week at Villa Ruza. As a self-confessed worrier of a Mum, this is the perfect property for me as it’s so safe and child friendly. There is a self-contained, private terrace that my son took huge delight in charging around on. The terrace also has a built-in seating and table area which was lovely for having breakfast whilst looking out at the water which is quite literally a few steps away.
Next door to the house is a quiet family run bar/ restaurant that serves really good quality (and exceptional value) food. A highlight for me were the grilled prawns that were divine. The owners of the bar were so friendly and welcoming and always gave us a wave when we returned home after a walk/ swim.
A short walk from the villa is Porto Montenegro. We visited here almost every day to wander around the shops, eat in the wonderful restaurants and of course, gaze at the super yachts!
The Villa itself has recently been renovated to a very high standard. The whole property was tastefully decorated and furnished with quality items. The kitchen was fully equipped – far better than my own kitchen at home! The bathrooms again very tastefully done with a really nice touch in the towels that were lovely thick Egyptian cotton. The bedrooms are big and spacious with a super king-sized bed which was so nice to have. Perhaps my favourite part of the house is the view from the bedroom – you’re so close to the water all you can see whilst you’re lying in bed is bright blue sea. The location of the property makes it so you get to see the most incredible sunsets. I recommend enjoying them with a glass of something cold on the terrace.
This is the first family holiday that we have had in a privately hired self-catering property. From the initial booking through to getting back to the airport with a taxi the owner organised for us, we couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
My family and I visited recently for a short break and we wish we had stayed longer! We flew in to Tivat airport which is literally a 5-minute Taxi ride away so extremely convenient. We arranged to meet the onsite contact who was waiting for us on arrival and showed us all aspects of the house whilst informing us about the surrounding location. The House is situated in a quiet square with the ocean directly in front with a beautiful old church right next door. Additionally, the house has a fantastic enclosed outside terrace/patio with seating area where you could easily seat 8-10 people whilst enjoying a sea view.
When they opened the doors for us we were astounded by the quality of the house which has recently been renovated to an extremely high standard whilst maintaining all the original charm. There are some lovely features like the original marine style lighting which goes so well with the property, as well as the lovely large beds and high quality linen which makes sleeping a pleasure. All the rooms have full blackout shutters and on the first day we slept until 1.00PM as they completely block the sun when closed. Bathrooms are extremely well appointed with fantastic quality towels and powerful rain showers, and the kitchen has superb facilities and all the appliances a family could need including a dishwasher (which we never used because eating out was so reasonable!)
Next door is a quaint bar/restaurant “Café Giardino” which is amazingly good value and serves a selection of excellent freshly cooked food. The owner was so kind and brought food over to the house for us to eat on the terrace whilst serving us drinks there as well. A few minutes’ walk away is the world acclaimed Port Montenegro which is a great place to spend time Yacht watching, eating in any of the fabulous restaurants, and enjoying the beautifully maintained promenades.
James and the local team were fantastic at promptly dealing with any of our queries, and were on hand at any time to assist us. I would recommend this property to anyone without hesitation as it was a first-class experience from beginning to end.
