About Jeanette Lacy Scott

We are from just outside of Brighton, England and are married with 3 children in their twenties. My husband, Francis, is a lawyer specialising in acquired brain injury and I work from home for the Sussex Law Society and also for 'a Blueprint for Better Business' which promotes ethical business practice.

Jeanette Lacy Scott purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Jeanette Lacy Scott chose Kotor

We came to Montenegro on a family holiday and stayed in Muo, just outside of Kotor. We fell in love with Montenegro and decided (on a bit of a whim!) to cash in a pension policy which was sitting doing nothing and buy an apartment so that we could get a bit if fun and enjoyment from the money. Once we saw Prcanj we knew it was the perfect place for us. As lovely as Kotor is it gets so crowded and noisy in Summer and Prcanj is so peaceful but you can get into Kotor easily in the day or evening and Prcanj has it's own bars and restaurants if you are feeling lazy (as we often are!). It is also easy to get to Tivat which is morphing into a sophisticated holiday resort and fun to visit. We come every year and every time explore a little further afield in this fascinating country.

What makes this apartment unique

We think we are so lucky to have discovered the perfect spot on Kotor Bay. It is a beautiful village in a great location. The apartment is so well located, easy to get to Kotor and Tivat but with enough local amenities that you don't have to get into the car to find a shop or a restaurant or a bar - they are all on your doorstep. There are lots of little beaches and jetties to sunbathe and swim from. There are some lovely local walks. There are so many places to visit. Or you can just sit on the balcony and watch the boats go by. We never get bored and always have a truly relaxing break!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Just wanted to drop you a quick email as we got back from Montenegro over the weekend. We had a really amazingly wonderfully lovely time and loved the apartment. Can't wait until we can go back, we will also be recommending it to all our friends. We managed to get around fine and used the bus loads. Bit sad to be back at work now!" Polly & Andy, September, 2012



"The weather was clear and around 20 degrees each day which was just the job ! We went to Kotor a few times, Perast and Tivat ( which we loved ). We ate out each night locally, (once in Tivat ). We both loved it and will be recommending it to our friends. We made friends with a few cab drivers who offered us some great deals to go places !( Budva 20 euros each way - which we didn't have time to do ) I would really love to go back and do Budva, Sveti Stefan and Lake Skadar !



Thanks again and we have filled in the guest book which will hopefully help others !!" Ben, April 2011

A perfect place to enjoy and explore Boka Kotorska

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was a perfect base to enjoy and explore the Venetian rustic beauty of Prcanj and the surrounding area. Every morning it was pure pleasure to sit on the balcony and watch the sun rise over the mountains with a cuppa, view the ships majestically gliding in and little boats whizzing back and forth as the Boka woke up.

A short stroll down to one of the charming jetties that line the beautiful mountainous lake meant a morning swim in the safe, crystal clear bay was a daily obligation! A heaven-sent one though, that ensured a breakfast of freshly baked bread from the local Pekara was always heartily enjoyed afterwards.

A slow walk to Kotor old town is recommended to get a feel for the area, as is the climb up St John's fortress for stunning views. Kayaking from Muo is also well worth doing to explore the other side of the lake. An evening meander through Prcanj was always a pleasure as families and folk are out swimming or just chilling till dusk and there are countless konobas, restaurants and little markets for an evening meal or refreshment.

If you hire a car, visit the Njegos Mausoleum at Lovcen National Park - the hairpin winding roads that go impossibly higher and higher, peak at the Mausoleum, but the views along the way are just out of this world. You will feel truly among the Gods when you reach the top.

A drive around Kotor Bay to Perast makes a lovely day out for lunch and a climb up the bell tower or a boat trip to Our Lady of the Rocks. Budva & Sveti Stefan were pleasant whistle stops on the Adriatic but it's worth exploring the little bays in between to find hidden gem coves and quirky konobas.

Lustica Peninsula has two distinct sides, the light hearted holiday haven with great views over Tivat Bay and lovely little bathing spots, but further in it gets wild and untamed with endless olive groves, tumble down walls and stunning views out to the Adriatic. Rose on the far tip is worth the journey for it's rustic prettiness and laid back, yachting vibe

We also enjoyed a 2 hour boat trip and quick swim in Skadar Lake, a massive inland clear water lake that stretches into Albania. It was a tranquil and serene water world and bird lover's paradise.

The apartment was perfectly located, clean and well equipped. Communication with the owners and their agent in Prcanj was faultless. So helpful, courteous and responsive. We could not have wished for a better experience and have totally fallen in love with Montenegro and Prcanj

Fabulous *****

  • 5 of 5

Great little apartment!

Very comfortable and well equipped, had everything we needed for a lovely weeks holiday.

Breathtaking views from balcony, where we spent lots of time relaxing with a glass of wine and watching the boats go by!

Prcanj is so scenic and unspoiled. Great restaurants and minimarkets within walking distance. Kotor is definately worth a visit to see the old town and take a boat trip - around 45 mins walk or the bus stops outside the minimarket at the bottom of the hill.

Enjoy!!

Wonderful Sea views

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay, the apartment was ideally situated and perfectly met all our requirements. Sitting on the balcony eating breakfast or having a glass of wine in the evening, watching the boats and liners going in and out of the bay was superb. There are some lovely restaurants close by and the supermarket sold all the basics needed. Kotor old town is lovely and we caught the bus there 3 times during our stay, well worth a visit. We didn't climb the city walls as it was extremely hot but hopefully will return and do so. We visited the nearby beach a few times late afternoon, which wasn't too busy and the sea was lovely and warm. We tried to find somewhere to buy a parasol as there is no shade on the balcony or at the beach but couldn't find one, but that was the only slight negative about our whole trip. The neighbors were extremely friendly, giving us cakes and even an omelette one day. From booking right through to leaving, communication has been excellent and it is definitely worth booking taxis through the agent, who were very helpful We would certainly recommend this apartment and hopefully will return sooner rather than later.

Lovely apartment in a great location-stunning scenery

  • 5 of 5

Great short break in a lovely smart apartment which the owners have thoughtfully furnished with all you could need on holiday. Balcony overlooks the bay-lovely for coffee and breakfast in the sun watching the boats sailing into Kotor first thing. Small but well equipped kitchen with washing machine . Sofa bed and bed are both comfortable . Apartment's location in Prcanj is great-it's quieter than nearby Kotor but an easy bus ride away or a pleasant stroll if you prefer. Several nice local restaurants and bars and good small mini market for all your needs.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jenny - so pleased you had a lovely time. What a shame it shows as Francis and I staying there (as we booked you in under our name I suspect!). My IT skills don't seem to stretch to changing it! Jeanette

Fantastic!

We have just returned from a beautiful 10 day stay here, the apt was spotless, everything was there, the views from the balcony were great, Prcanj itself is so lovely, it's quiet, plenty of restaurants a couple of little shops for basic needs, we found the people so friendly and helpful, we walked a lot, and explored places, plenty of boat trips from Kotor we even got one trip to stop at Prcanj on the way through and pick us up and it was no problem for them, would highly recommend Jeanette and Francis' apt and Prcanj, thank you I'll think we will be in touch for next year!!!

Amazing little apartment in an idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 7 days and had an incredible time. The apartment is light and spacious - the bedroom is far bigger than it looks in the picture and there are high ceilings the whole way through giving it a very light and airy feeling. The balcony overlooks the whole bay which is truly breathtaking to wake up to on a sunny day. Every morning my boyfriend and I couldn't believe our eyes! Our host out there, Daniel, was so helpful and organised our taxi on our last night and responded to any queries we had about transport etc. all the way through our stay. The weather was a bit up and down but luckily the apartment is stocked with entertainment for the rainy days so we filled them with Simpsons Monopoly, Chequers and lots of classic films! Th shop at the end of the road is perfect fr all essentials and there were lots of restaurants within walking distance - do not go to Boka Bay though - only one with a really weird atmosphere. Gems include Villa Marija and Konoba Bokeski (i think that's the name), great food and atmosphere. It felt like home by the time we left and now all we want to do is go back! Great holiday, thanks so much Jeanette and Francis.

Location

Nearest Airport
11 Kilometres
Tivat

Coast/Beach:

There are small, safe beaches and puntas from which you can swim and sunbathe on in and around Prcanj. The best beaches (lots of small ones) are towards the Adriatic Coast. The nearest and some of the nicest can be found 10-15 minutes drive away on the Lustica Peninsular and towards Budva.

Travel:

Nearest airports Tivat (25 minutes ) - our agents can arrange taxis for you from/to Tivat which is much cheaper (50%!) than just picking up outside the airport. In 2017 I paid 25 Euros to the taxi outside the airport arriving and 11 euros to the taxi arranged by our agents!.

Dubrovnik & Podgorica (approx 1 hour 30 minutes - drive).

Car hire is inexpensive and recommended and can be arranged through our property management agents in Kotor, but it is not essential as they can also arrange transfer to and from the airports and there is a cheap frequent local bus service which takes you to Kotor Old Town and other main local coastal towns and there is a bus station in Kotor with buses travelling to destinations further afield.

Distances:

Kotor Old Town - 7km, Tivat - 8km, Perast - 18km, Budva Old Town and beaches - 30km, Sveti Stefan - 34km, Dubrovnik - 85km.

Further Details:

There are lots of things to do and see nearby including:

Small towns and villages around Kotor Bay including Dobrota, Perast, Risan - all with little beaches, bars and beautiful buildings (take a boat and visit the church on the island of Sveti Djorde just off Perast).

Kotor: Beautiful Venetian-styled old walled city with cobbled streets and squares and shops, bars, restaurants, banks, daily market and ramparts ascending to St Ivan's fortress -which is a must! Just outside the city walls a colourful market is held every day (Saturday is best) and the marina opposite, with its luxury yachts and visits from cruise liners makes for great people watching! Boat trips and boat hire available here.

Budva: This lively tourist resort by the sea is based around a restored medieval walled city with winding narrow cobbled streets, museums, shops and bars.

Sveti Stefan: A beautiful peninsular famous as a local celebrity haunt.

Tivat: with its large Bay, Tivat has a marina, shops, bars, cafes, restaurants and beaches, an open market, diving school and tennis club. The stunning Porto Montenegro is well under way and worth a visit before it is overrun by the rich and famous!

Lustica Peninsula: A nature reserve with beautiful bays, coves, beaches and lovely countryside with plenty of walking, birdwatching etc.

And further afield (an hour an a half away and more).

The Durmitor National Park and mountains, Lake Skadar National Park and the Tara Canyon (world's second deepest and longest!) Lots of activity sports can be undertaken here, white water rafting, paragliding, walking and skiing in the winter but they are a long drive and you might consider making it more than a day trip!

Dubrovnik and Southern Croatia can be visited for a day trip.

Ulcing and its long sandy beaches.

Cetinje (former capital) is a beautiful mountainous drive from Prcanj with palaces, a monastery and museums.
