About Ray Crowley

I work in distribution industry and Rebecca is a successful artist

Ray Crowley purchased this house in 2005

Why Ray Crowley chose Perast

Situated in a street with only two other houses, the old vine house is very private but a very short walk to the seafront, shop and main square of Perast. The vine covered courtyard give shade from the midday sun and is a great spot to sit, eat and chat. All the rooms have and windows with inset screens to allow you to have fresh air throughout the warm evenings. If you prefer air conditioning, each room is equipped with its own air conditioning unit which provides both cold, and if necessary, room temperature. Our house is a great place to relax and enjoy Perast and the surrounding area.

What makes this house unique

2 small beaches in Perast

Special interest holidays:

The Gulf of Kotor (Boka Kotorska) cuts deeply into the coastline of the southern part of the Yugoslav Adriatic, creating four spectacular bays ringed in mountains, the “fjords” of the Mediterranean. The little town of Perast is situated at the foot of St. Elijah Hill (873m), opposite the narrow Verige strait, where the innermost bays of Risan and Kotor converge. This easternmost shore was the earliest inhabited area in the Boka. The remains of a Neolithic culture (3500 BC) have been discovered in the caves of Spila above Perast and various archaeological finds provide evidence of civilization dating from Illyrian, Roman and early Christian periods.


As the house is located 100m from the sea front it is ideal for swimming from any of Perast's public piers or either of its beaches. A variety of larger sandy beaches are within 30 minutes drive with children's play areas, pedal boat rentals, bars, restaurants, etc.


Dubrovnik airport is 40 miles (1 hour drive, bus services, taxi) with frequent flights from London, Dublin, Cork, Manchester, Nottingham and Birmingham with BA, Aer Lingus, Croatian airlines Budget Travel and low cost companies (Flybee, Thomsonfly, etc).

Tivat Airport is 16 miles (20 minute drive) with flights from London Heathrow with Jat airlines and from Paris CDG with Montenegro Airlines.

We can arrange car hire, collection / drop-off from either airport.

Ferry: Bari (Italy)-Bar.


Kotor 15 min, is a beautiful historic lively medieval walled town. Regular festivals take place throughout the year. There is a local bus services (cost=€1) that connects Perast with Kotor and many of the little coastal villages. This runs approx every 30 mins (20 during the summer). Taxis are reasonably priced and readily available.

Cetinje - historic capital of the country in northern mountains (1 hr).

Budva - ancient town and beautiful beaches (45 min).

Variety of beaches within 30 min.

Further Details:

My favourites in no particular order:

A boat trip to the Islands of Perast, Our Lady of the Rock and Abbey of St. George.

Dinner on the peir at the Conté Hotel Perast. One of the best meals I have had in Montenegro and well the sunset - indescribable.

Trip to Sveti Stefan. You can stop a couple of miles before Sveti Stefan and walk through the old summer palace grounds to the island.

Swimming from the rocks at Ploche beach off season. This is an beautiful swimming area with deep clean water on the end of the headland but in high season can be crowed.

An evening strole along Debrota's water front.

White water rafting in the Tara canyon, second only to the Grand Canyon - exhilerating to say the least.

An early morning scale of the old walls of Kotor will give you an unparallel view of Kotor bay while removing any cobwebs from your head. You will need to allow 1 hour for the ascent and need to set off at 6am in summer to avoid the morning heat and bring plenty of water.
