About the property

Villa in Kavac, Kotor, overlooking Tivat Bay, Montenegro - Set In Tranquil Olive Estate Between Kotor and Tivat.

The 5 acre Boka Vista country estate largely consists of olive terraces nestled in the foothills of Mount Vrmac, separating Kotor and Tivat Bays. With stunning views of mountains, the Boka and glorious sunsets, the south facing position has sunshine all day.

This modern villa consists of 3 floors; a self contained 2 bedroom apartment on the ground floor, a sitting room and kitchen diner on the 1st floor and 3 bedrooms/3 bathrooms on the top floor.

The 1st floor has an exceptional terrace for alfresco dining with easy access to the large private swimming pool. The surrounding landscaped gardens have bougainvillea, orange, lemon and olive trees plus a host of Mediterranean plants. Adjacent terraces provide plenty of space for sport and relaxation. During the summer months wild tortoises abound. Beaches, modern supermarkets, cash machines and good restaurants are all within a 15 minutes drive.

This comfortable property is an excellent base for large or two families seeking fun who wish to explore or just simply chill in a beautiful part of Montenegro.

Wonderful villa, amazing hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic villa with lovely pool and we never got tired of looking at the stunning view of the bay of Kotor. Plenty of space for people to congregate or do their own thing. The children loved the wild tortoises in the garden. Roger and Liz were very helpful and welcoming hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them.

Perfect property for extended family or base to explore

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week's stay at Boko Vista after travelling to Montenegro for our Son's wedding in Tivat. The property offers modern and welcoming accommodation with five double rooms and five bathrooms, it provided us with excellent social space yet enough privacy for all.

The apartment is well equipped and the hosts Roger and Liz went far beyond expectations to ensure our stay was comfortable and trouble-free.

Montenegro itself offers a magnificent blend with the obvious opulence of Porto Montenegro and its yachting fraternity to the simplest delights of Kotor old town and the smaller villages scattered around the stunning countryside.

We will definitely be returning to this country and would heartedly recommend Boko Vista as a place to stay, even the winding road that affords such great views over the bay below cannot detract from the excellent warm and welcoming reception received from the owners.

Owner's Response: Gordon, thank you for your full review. We are always delighted when guests have thoroughly enjoyed their visit, particularly when a wedding is involved. Again, Boka Vista proves its worth as a great base for exploring this fascinating area of Montenegro, or for just chilling, or both!

Amazing base for exploring Montenegro

  • 5 of 5

A lovely modern villa with breathtaking views over the bay and ideally located as a base for exploring the spectacular scenery of Montenegro. The villa was spacious and well appointed with a lovely pool that the kids thoroughly enjoyed. Roger and Liz were gracious hosts and gave us lots of tips on various trips and places to eat. Would recommend this villa for a large party or two families travelling together.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for booking our Villa and for your very positive review. Boka Vista clearly worked as a two family base and you seemed have a huge amount of fun. We hope you will be able to return and discover more of Montenegro.

Fabulous location overlooking the beautiful bay.

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous location overlooking the beautiful bay. The villa is positioned set away up on the hill but not to far from everything. It has everything you need for an enjoyable stay. The hosts Rodger and Liz are lovely, nothing to much trouble. They are very helpful with recommendations too. Would really recommend this villa for a big family or hoe a couple of families holidaying together.

Will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your very positive review. Yes, Boka Vista is ideal for an extended or 2 family holiday who want to be well located in this stunning bit of beautiful Montenegro close to but not in the middle of all the action.

Modern and spacious villa in a spectacular setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a very memorable stay at this lovely villa in the mountains overlooking Tivat. As a family with young children, the beautiful swimming pool and extensive grounds (complete with wild tortoises!) were particularly welcomed.

The villa is simply but comprehensively furnished with all modern amenities and the views from the terrace, particularly as the sun sets, are breathtaking.

The location, particularly if you're flying to Tivat, couldn't be better with the beautiful town of Kotor close by and other attractions such as Perast and the Lovcen National Park within easy reach.

We plan to return again soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review. We are genuinely delighted when guests enjoy their stay in our villa. Easyjet flights from Gatwick and Manchester to Tivat have made the Boka even more accessible. We look forward to welcoming you all back.
