Villa with Private Pool, Garden and Spectacular Bay Views

Bedrooms 4
Property type villa


About the property

Villa in Zabrdje, Lustica Peninsula, Montenegro - Quiet village location on beautiful Lustica Peninsula close to beaches, restaurants and shops

The Villa sits near the top of the hill which climbs the Lustica peninsula from Krasici along the side of the Boka Bay. It has 4 good sized bedrooms and 3 bathrooms (one of which is en-suite), a separate living and dining room and well equipped kitchen. The private swimming pool also benefits from the stunning views of the bay. The gardens are ideal for sunbathing or just chilling, and the balconies are perfect for taking in the breathtaking views over Boka Bay, whilst enjoying sundowners or a meal.

The location is an ideal base for taking gentle strolls or more vigorous walks – with plenty of old churches, ruined forts and spectacular views to keep you interested. It is a 10 minute walk or a 2 minute drive to the end of the peninsula– where the scenery is transformed into what we have come to refer to as ‘Little Tuscany’– quite unlike anywhere else in Montenegro - with its rolling hills and olive groves.

The beaches on the peninsula are arguably the best in the country – and there are several within 15-20 minutes drive (including Miristar, Zanjice, Oblatno and Plavi Horizonti) - each with their own excellent restaurants (and in the case of Zanjice - a selection of several). And nearby Rose (just 10 minutes drive away) is undoubtedly the prettiest fishing village in Montenegro, with two delightful restaurants, some beautiful old Venetian buildings and an active diving school.

About Roger Britton

I am English (born and bred in Bristol) but have lived outside of the UK since 1999. I am currently based in Cambodia, where I own a restaurant - but previously lived for 8 years (from 2002 to 2010) in the former Yugoslavia - firstly in Belgrade and then in Montenegro. I still spend as much time as I can in Montenegro (at least a few weeks a year) and eventually would like to retire there. I have owned property in Montenegro since 2004 - having fallen in love with the country, while it was still part of Serbia and Montenegro. I bought this and my other property in Eraci (Owners Direct Ref. MN330), also on the Lustica peninsula, in 2007.

Roger Britton purchased this villa in 2007

Why Roger Britton chose Kotor

For me, buying on Lustica was one of the easiest decisions I have ever made - as it is, in my opinion, the most beautiful part of the Montenegrin coastline. Still largely undiscovered and spectacularly beautiful, reminiscent of Tuscany – Lustica is starting to enjoy more popularity with travellers looking for something different and in addition several large and impressive developments are either already underway or are soon to start. These include the Lustica Bay development, well underway on the other side of the peninsula and 2 other multi-million Euro projects ready to go. However, the peninsula still remains one of the most peaceful and unspoiled locations in Montenegro.

What makes this villa unique

The thing that will immediately strike you about this property (and sold me on it back in 2007) is the absolutely stunning view over the Boka Bay. To the West you can see Herceg Novi, to the East Tivat (including the upmarket Porto Montenegro with it's great architecture and super yacht marina) - and now just across the bay there is the new exclusive Portonovi development. But you can still sit on the balcony of this stylish but cozy villa, in the peace and quiet of the quaint little village of Zabrdjeand watch from afar - your view periodically enhanced by the majestic site of the cruise liners wending their way along the Boka Bay to the historic old town of Kotor. Spectacular!

Guestbook comments from the manager

I’d like to say what a fantastic week we all had, how smooth the handover was and how incredibly lovely and helpful Dragana was.

Fantastic property!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this property 16-23 September 2017 and we were not disappointed.

The communication with Roger from the beginning has been fantastic and having the added reassurance of Bosko on the ground in Montenegro was great.

The views from the villa are absolutely stunning, we could have sat there all day and not got tired of them!

We would recommend visiting Perast and Tivat as both were fantastic!

A great stay in one of the most beautiful countries we have ever visited. We will definitely return:)

Thank you Roger & Bosko for a great stay and great memories.

We hope to have you stay again some time in the future. Best regards, Roger

Stunning views, beautifully equipped house, well looked after

  • 5 of 5

Montenegro - what an incredible country. It's breath-taking mountain views are captured beautifully from balconies, loungers and pool in this fantastic property, and it was easy to spend hours with a glass in hand gazing at the view (sunset was particularly special). We found the location to be good, with Rose, Tivat, Kotor and Budva short journeys away.

Before our holiday the owners were really helpful and friendly, and our local contact Bosko was easily contactable if we needed anything (we didn't, everything was perfect!) We were given the details of a local boat owner and Captain Miki took us out on a brilliant day on his boat.

We had 4 adults and 4 children in our party; the kids loved the pool, the aqua park in Budva, diving off the platforms into the sea, and swinging in hammocks at the 'hidden beach', and the adults loved the views, 'Nik' (the local beer), the peace, the food and the nearest bar (walking distance) where we were warmly welcomed by the locals.

We highly recommend this property and would like to thank both Roger and Janet for your help, and for the opportunity to sample Montenegrin life.

Stunning View and a really great, well equipped House.

  • 5 of 5

We loved it very much. The view from the balconys are stunning. You could sit there the whole day. The house is stuffed with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Not far from several Restaurants and some nice beaches. We loved the Queens Supermarket (10 min drive).

We will definitely come back.

The perfect property with amazing views ...

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful property is situated high on a hill side and the views are amazing across the bay, we spent many happy hours relaxing on one of the many balconies watching sunrise, sunsets and cruiseships passing below. The house was immaculate with everything supplied that you might need to make your stay perfect, no corners had been cut and all appliances and equipment were top quality. We were met by Bosko, who ensured our stay was relaxed. He provided us with a local mobile phone with his telephone number in it (along with a local taxi driver and boat skipper!) so we felt fully supported throughout. The house is quite remote (which we loved) so if it's a busy town you're looking for, this may not be for you - but it's within a short drive of lots of towns - so ideal for visiting Kotor, Tivat, Budva, Rose and beyond ... This property was so good, we're booking again for next year, and we've never done that before !

Fantastic - snap this up if you get the chance

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this property in September. There were 5 of us including an elderly relative. We were completely comfortable and had plenty of space to spread ourselves out in the property and never felt like we were under each others feet. As for the the house itself, it is an absolute gem of a property - its best feature is the breathtaking views over the bay, I doubt there is a better view to be had from another property on the Lustica peninsula. We woke every morning to witness the most fabulous sunrises from the 2 balconies.

Besides it's awesome location for views, the house is brilliantly equipped with everything you might need (Janet has really given that a lot of thought). The property is super modern and clean, and comfortable to a luxury standard. It's literally a 25 minute drive to/from Tivat airport. Plenty of local amenities a short drive back down the hill. No end of great places to visit, all within less than an hour away. (We wish we had had more than 2 weeks to explore further). Bosko who is the owner's local contact, could not be more friendly or helpful - he was on hand whenever we had questions, and to rewsolve any minor problems (of which there were very few). We hope to be able to return to Monetnegro and we'll be trying hard to book this same property again - it was everything we hoped for and more!

Beautiful views, extremely relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Such a great place to relax, unwind and take in the views. Spotlessly clean, great space, powerfull aircon in each room and extremely helpful support throughtout the experience added to the enjoyment of our week long stay. Only 10 mins drive from the stunning Rose and other lovely beaches, means day or lunch trips aren't very far. Have already passed on my recommendations to other friends.

Car: necessary


The stunning Boka Bay is a constant and spectacular presence – from the time you wake and look out of your bedroom window to the moment you sit on the balcony as the sun goes down. The view from the Villa is never boring – there is always something to see day or night. Huge cruise ships making their majestic way to and from Kotor, super-yachts posing en route to Porto Montenegro and simple fishing boats plying their trade. See below for details of/distances to nearby beaches.


A car is essential to stay in Zabrdje. Tivat Airport is a 20 min drive – from where Montenegran Airlines serves a range of European cities. Currently London flights operate 2 x a week (Tue/Sun) with 2 more flights to Podgorica (2 hrs drive). And EasyJet have just started flying Gatwick to Tivat on Mon/Thu. Plus Ryanair now flies from Stansted to Podgorica, with plans to serve Tivat soon. Many visitors use Croatia’s well connected Dubrovnik Airport, less than 2 hrs drive from the Villa, where carriers include BA plus budget airlines such as RyanAir, Jet2, EasyJet & Flybe. Allow extra time for queues at the border during summer, however.


Miristar and Zanjice beaches are both 20 minutes drive away, with Rose only 10 minutes away. Kotor and Tivat are both approx. 20 mins drive, and Budva is approx. 40 mins drive. Beautiful walks from the house and short drives away including churches, monasteries and ancient fortifications.

The nearest beach, shops and restaurants are 5 mins drive down the hill in Krasici (or 25 minutes walk – but don’t try walking back!). A small supermarket and a cash machine are 10 minutes away in Radovici, and larger supermarkets and a garage 15 minutes away on the main Tivat-Budva highway.

Further Details:

Montenegro – ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’ – hang out for the rich and famous in the 60s and 70s and now firmly back on the map again with many new upmarket developments, such as Porto Montenegro and Lustica Bay attracting an increasing number of rich and famous visitors.

Lustica is considered by many to be the jewel in Montenegro’s crown. Beautiful and unspoiled, in parts like stepping back in time with cowbells ringing in the distance, goats wandering around and local cheeses and cured ham plus home made wine and brandy available from farmers houses at the side of the road. Yet there are great beaches and restaurants on the peninsula - and many tourist attractions and several bustling towns with vibrant nightlife within easy reach by car.

Start by visiting the beautiful Venetian fishing village of Rose, with its 3 great restaurants and diving centre. Further round the peninsula are the popular neighbouring beaches of Miristar and Zanjice. Miristar has one excellent beachside restaurant – and Zanjice has several, including the upmarket Ribarsko Selo. Catch a water taxi to Herceg Novi, Tivat, the famous Blue Cave or secluded Dobrec, only reachable by boat. Dobrec is one of two beaches on the Lustica peninsula (out of a total of six in Montenegro) which have been awarded the Blue Pennant by the WTO (the other being Plavi Horizonti, further round the peninsula) - and it also boasts an amazing seafood restaurant. The popular resort of Krasici is only 10 minutes drive away, where there is a pizzeria, a great local restaurant and several shops. A few minutes further along the peninsula at Krtole are 3 top quality fish restaurants.

At Tivat, wander around stunning Porto Montenegro, the largest and most spectacularly located marina in the Adriatic, with an impressive range of upmarket restaurants, bars, shops and boutiques – plus a 5 star hotel. Tivat town itself has an increasingly impressive range of restaurants, cafes and bars. The beautiful old walled town of Kotor (likened to a smaller version of Dubrovnik) features a myriad of cobbled streets and small squares on which can be found a range of restaurants, bars and shops – plus the trendy Maximus Club, one of the coolest on the Med.

Then there is Budva – playground for the ‘beautiful people’ which again has a range of bars, restaurants and clubs – including the new Miracle Lounge which features a diverse program of live music – including well known international bands and DJs - all through the summer.

See link below for details of 10 of the best restaurants along this part of the Montenegrin coast (all reachable by water taxi) – 3 of which are on the Lustica peninsula.

Montenegro boasts a whole range of amazing tourist attractions, such as the Lovcen National Park, Lake Skadar with its huge range of wildlife, the Ancient capital of Cetinje, the famous island haunt of the rich and famous – Sveti Stefan and the Old Venetian Port of Perast with its picture postcard islands just off shore. From Kotor, Perast or Tivat – take a boat trip round stunning Boka Bay. And if you want to venture across the border - visit the jewel in Croatia’s tourist crown – Dubrovnik
