The house is reached through a lovely pathway lined with Italian...More

Herceg Novi is located at the entrance to the Bay of Kotor. Founded in 1382, its defensive role is witnessed by numerous fortresses and towers, where today, on open-air stages, film, music, and flower festivals are held. It also has several beautiful squares with old churches, galleries, and museums as well as many fine restaurants and cafés like Gradska Kafana, Bife Beograd, Tri Lipe, Feral, and many more. The area of Mojdez is located just above Igalo and Herceg Novi, in a green wooded area, olive trees, small vineyards, with views of the mountain tops. You will remember the sunsets and stargazing at night while enjoying a glass of wine! You can also visit the islands by hiring a private boat with skipper.
Montenegro is a small country and you can get to the furthest point within 4 hours drive. The villa is 10 minutes drive from the centre of Herceg Novi and Igalo and all the holiday attractions, beaches, restaurants, cafes, banks, coach station etc. 40 min drive to Kotor and Tivat, 3,5 hours to Durmitor National Park.
