About the Owner
We are rather 'cosmopolitan' family of four with roots in France, Montenegro and England. Our apartment is our holiday home that we treasure enormously and enjoy every time we visit. We live and work in Buckinghamshire/Oxfordshire in England, love reading and films, play lots of tennis and rugby... Summer holidays in Montenegro provide opportunities to catch up with grandparents, family, old friends, welcome some of our friends from England, swap cars for boats...
If you decide to visit, we are confident that you will not be disappointed, especially if you love adventure and have interests in other cultures. You would certainly be welcomed.
