The NeighborhoodDuring the summer months there are a number of restaurants and bars open in Perast, notably the excellent restaurant at Hotel Conte and the fun Pirat Bar overlooking the islands. There are many more restaurants and bars dotted around the bay in Orahovac, Ljuta, Morinj and Dobrota that are worth a visit.
The apartment is fully furnished for self-catering, and the local food is healthy, organic and fresh. A morning spent at Risan or Kotor markets is a great way to sample local foods and a little local colour! In Perast there are 2 local shops where most essential items can be bought at reasonable prices. It stocks fresh bread, fruit, milk, coffee, yogurts, fruit juices, excellent local beer and red or white wine, etc. A larger supermarket can be found at Kotor.
The Adriatic coast is 30 mins drive away with many sandy beaches around Budva, Becici and Sveti Stefan. If you prefer quieter beaches, head to the Lustica peninsula with its beautiful wild landscape, just 20 minutes drive away from Perast. Blue Horizon (plaza horizonti) is a large sandy beach about 30 mins drive away, which has a children's park, a good beach bar/restaurant and scenic walks. It gets very busy in August.
Perast suits the more discerning traveller who is looking for something special and it is ideally situated for sightseeing trips around this stunning country. Getting AroundAs Perast has only one street it is forbidden to drive with the cars into the town during the summer period.
Of course there is bus which is taking care about the guests and vistors through Perast.
There are two parking spaces from each sides of Perast.
Price for parking is 2 eur per day.
We have agreement with people who are working on parking that our guests can drive into town first day when they arrive so they could take out baggage from the vehicles. After that guests would drive the car to the parking space.Easily accessible...(Car parking is restricted to locals or home-owners during July and August, so cars must be parked at either side of the village. Regular shuttles are available to take luggage into the village, and gold buggies can be hired for this purpose.)
You can swim from May to the end of October in the deep crystal waters of the fjord. The property is just yards from the sea, with many small beaches and jetties available locally for sunbathing, swimming or a spot of fishing. We like to swim at the concrete platform to the West of Perast, a spot called Borici, which is partially shaded by fragrant Mediterranean pines. The bowling club (similar to French Petanques) serves drinks and snacks on picnic tables under the shade of the trees, and is a great place to escape the heat of the sun and look out across the bay. Other Things to NoteAround the Boka Kotorska
Boka Bay (The Boka Kotorska) is large inlet that resembles a fjord (it is actually a flooded river valley) with precipitous mountains that plunge into deep blue sea. The Boka is officially on the list of ‘The Five Most Beautiful Bays in the World'.
On the wonderful road around Boka Kotorska (50km coastline !), from Herceg Novi to the medieval and baroque Perast and the Walled city of Kotor, then along to the villages of Muo, Prcanj and Stoliv, there are a chain of nice little villages and towns.. Tivat, a former Naval Base near the mouth of the fjord, has recently been bought for development as a high-end marina for Super Yachts by a consortium including Canadian Mining Bilionaire Peter Munk, The Rothschilds, LMVH and (of course) Russian Oligarch. Ambitious plans are being made to put Montenegro on the world map as ‘the Monte Carlo of the Adriatic’ for the Super-Rich. Happily, this has no effect on Perast, which remains calm and peaceful at all times.
Kotor, the ancient capital of Boka Kotorska, is a lively medieval walled town and is only a 15 mins drive away (there are also regular local bus services) from Perast by a road that connects many of the little coastal villages with their old churches and ancient houses or old ruins. The villages of Oharovac and Ljuta are great places to swim and have lunch, and there are many grand old Venetian palaces and impressve churches around Dobrota on the front line to the sea.
Like Perast, Kotor is granted UNESCO world heritage status. ‘Stari Grad’ (the Old Town), which prohibits access to vehicles, is a labyrinth of cobbled streets filled with many churches and houses dating back to the 12th and 13th c., Kotor is often likened to a “little Dubrovnik”, and a strenuous climb to the top of the city walls, perched high on the side of the mountain, is well worth it for the stunning view down the length of the bay. There are many squares and piazzas, each with its own pavement cafes and restaurants. Kotor market is a good place to pick up fresh fruit and vegetables, fish, cured meats, cheese, olive oil and Loza, the potent local spirit. In the summer months, Kotor becomes a party town after the sun goes down, and is now on the route of many international DJs. Regular festivals take place in the Old Town throughout the year.
Risan is in need of some TLC, but is rapidly improving. Although a little ugly at the front, it has a crumbling old town and boasts plenty of sites of historical interest, including roman mosaics and prehistoric cave paintings. The local market, on Saturdays and Sundays, is bustling and fun. Get there early to get the best cheese!
People of the Boka (‘Bocchesi’ or ‘Bokeli’) are welcoming, very friendly and helpful English is widely spoken (first of all among young people), but not quite as widely as Russian …
Montenegro is still relatively undiscovered by western tourism but this is sure to change next years with the publicity it has recently been given.
Venturing inland are Winter Ski Resorts (Durmitor or Kolasin) and Northern Mountains (2 hours drive away) for the more intrepid explorers or travellers. Rafting in breath taking Tara Canyon (about 90 mins drive away and the second deepest canyon in the world after the Grand Canyon), ballooning in Northern Mountains (2 hours drive away); canoeing; hang-gliding; paragliding; microlighting; rock & mountain climbing; mountain biking; twitching; sailing; snorkeling, etc. Skadar lake, one of Europe's largest which stretches down into Albania, is approx 90 mins drive away, and is a haven for bird and wildlife.
Tivat airport ,aprox 35 minutes driving to Perast :)
Car hire is available anytime and we can help you with that.We can also suggest a Montenegrin company who can pick you up.
Although Dubrovnik is in Croatia (not Montenegro), it is an easy drive (90 minutes) from Dubrovnik Airport (Cilipi) to the property. There are also flights into Tivat Airport (in Montenegro), which is just 25 minutes from the apartment. Up to now
The journey from Dubrovnik airport to Perast is easy and straightforward (along the stunning Kotor fjord) and should take approx. one to two hours, depending on the border crossing with Croatia - Montenegro. The border is approximately 20 mins from the airport.
Lights are required for all driving in Montenegro, so keep them on at all times or risk an on-the-spot fine of 30 or 40 euros. When booking the car, you must check that there is no restriction taking it from Croatia to Montenegro. Usually, this is fine, but occasionally there might be an extra charge of a couple of euros per day.We can help you renting the car-good prices.
We recommend that clients take out Health and Travel Insurance. Personal liability insurance is not available in Montenegro, so we do not hold any responsibility for accidents or personal injure.
