With stunning views in every direction and sparkling interiors, Villa Budua is the perfect spot for a Balkan getaway.
Spread across three floors, this villa has been designed in shades of ocean blue and fresh white with inspiration from the Mediterranean Sea. Each floor is handily equipped with its own kitchen, dining area and bathroom. Open the floor-to-ceiling windows to reveal a private terrace. Absolutely ideal for families travelling together, this setup offers privacy, yet many areas to socialise together. The villa was completed in 2017, so the facilities and fixtures are all modern.
Outside, the large terrace complete with a beautiful plunge pool rests proudly above the Lazi Hill, with sweeping views of the glittering Adriatic Sea and dramatic green mountains. Take a refreshing dip in the pool to cool off from the Mediterranean heat, then enjoy the view on the sunbeds or on the nautical-themed striped sofa. The exterior of the property is painted in dazzling shades of cobalt and ocean blue, with a veranda that wraps around the side.
In the airy living room, kick back on comfortable sofas scattered with bright blue cushions. There's plenty of room to enjoy some downtime and socialise around the sleek white coffee table. Billowing cornflower blue curtains open out onto the balcony - breathe in the mountain air and enjoy the calming atmosphere.
The three bedrooms sleep six people in supremely comfortable double beds, while a further three guests can stay on the spacious pull-out sofas. Decorated in a neutral colour scheme, the luxurious bedrooms feature crisp white walls and cool tiled flooring, teamed with fawn and taupe soft furnishings. If you're lucky, you might receive a romantic rose petal welcome. Bathrooms are minimal and chic, decked out in cream tiles and glass. Here, you'll find a luxurious rain shower inside the sleek glass and a large mirror for getting ready.
The kitchen is well equipped for home cooking and boasts an oven, so you can rustle up a family feast. Alternatively, bring a takeaway of delicious Montanegrin cuisine from one of the delightful restaurants to enjoy around the dining table. This villa is truly the epitome of a relaxed, sun-soaked Mediterranean holiday.
Nestled close to the lush greenery of the mountainside and the stunning Adriatic sea, this villa is beautifully located for a fantastic holiday in Montenegro. It's just 1km from the centre of lively, charming Budva that has become especially popular with holidaymakers. With its imposing stone Venetian walls that once guarded the city from intruders and its cosmopolitan cafes and nightlife, Budva is the beating heart of this stunning Balkan country.
Delicately cradled on a peninsula, theres an ancient seaside citadel in a prominent part of the medieval Old Town, known as the Stari Grad. Here, you'll find historic churches such as St. John the Baptist, which has parts dating back to the 9th century and Holy Trinity, made of beautiful pink and honey coloured stone. There are also four monasteries called Stanjevići, Podmaine, Reževići and Gradiste.
Get pleasantly lost, discovering hidden nooks and crannies around the narrow streets and alleyways that make up the pedestrian-only Old Town. There are many boutiques and street stalls to discover here, and several piazzas to enjoy a coffee and people watch.
Known as the Budva Riviera, there are no fewer than 17 named beaches that stretch along the coastline from Jaz to Buljarica. Some great choices for a beach day include Becici beach, where you can go paragliding, and Kamenow, with its crystal clear turquoise waters and powdery sand. Mogren beach is the closest to the Old Town. Stop at a seaside cafe for some fresh seafood and a glass of local wine.
There are a myriad of scenic hiking trails around the local area, including the Seven Bay Trail, with dramatic sweeping landscapes from Buvan to Sveti Stefan, a luxury resort. Take in several of the region's most beautiful beaches along the way. Another impressive and challenging hike is the Buvan to Majstori trail, which climbs over 3000m in elevation over the sea and its coastline, dotted with tiny local villages.
For art lovers, visit the Modern Gallery that features work of Montanegrin and former Yugoslavian artists. History buffs will love the ethnographic City Museum of Budva, which has a comprehensive overview of the town's past.
In summer, the town has a summer festival, with open air theatre and plenty of opportunities to see local dancing displays and folk music. International DJs play at beach parties - particularly Jaz beach - while revellers sip cocktails and dance the night away. There's an infectious festival atmosphere around the whole town - it's easy to see why Budva is Montenegro's most-visited holiday destination.
Day trips from Budva include Tivat, which could be mistaken for Monaco, due to the luxury yachts that bob in Porto Montenegro, the famous marina. Sunsets over the bay are often spectacular - park yourself at a seafront cafe for a coffee or some delicious local ice cream and watch the sky light on fire.
Another lovely place to explore is enchanting Boka Bay. Encircled by mountains, the bay is also known as the 'Bride of the Adriatic' and is a one of a kind geological formation similar to a Scandinavian fjord. A riot of colourful flowers bloom every spring around the jagged coastline, and the bay is dotted with tiny medieval villages, looming cliffs and with bright blue inlets. There are plenty of boat trips you can take to neighbouring bays such as Kotor and Cetinje, or even as far as Dubrovnik in Croatia.
