About the Owner
About Laurence Baughan
I am from England and live in the New Forest. I have worked in over 30 different countries around the world but specialised in projects in Eastern Europe and Russia. I first became aware of the Adriatic coast line in 1997 when working in Bosnia and Croatia. Further projects in Kosova in 2005 led to many recommendations to visit Montenegro and in 2007 I visited and fell in love with the country. I had been told that if you love the Adriatic coastline you will be enchanted by Kotor Bay. This recommendation has proved completely true as even after 6 years I still find myself transfixed by the sheer scale and beauty of the biggest fjord in Europe with almost sheer cliffs dropping 3,000 feet into the sea.
Why Laurence Baughan chose Montenegro
Prcanj is a wonderful fishing village which is close enough to Porto Montenegro with its luxury yachts and modern apartments and very close to the World Heritage Site of Kotor.
Perhaps the most striking part of the bay is the clarity of light across the bay highlighting the 1000 metre mountains. Also being fjord the waters are safe and very tranquil which makes the bay great for swimming.
What makes this apartment unique
What makes this property different is the fact that it is a one-off. I renovated the whole house to a standard that I would be happy to live and holiday in.
While there are many wonderful places to stay in Montenegro there are often apartments that are part of modern 6 or 8 apartment complex. These are fine but they are not unique.
The apartment is in a house that has no development at either side of it although there are properties behind it. The road leads to a deep ravine and stops just at the front of the house so there is no through traffic.
Very peaceful and relaxing.
Please contact me directly to check for availability of the property. The preferred rental period is one week during the high season.
A 20% non refundable deposit is required to secure booking. The balance is to be paid no later than 6 weeks prior to arrival. Payment accepted in Euros/UK Pounds. Payment includes tourist taxes.

Extremely decent owner
We had booked the penthouse apartment for two weeks in September 2016. Unfortunately we had to pull out with short notice due to a personal crisis. Laurence was incredibly helpful and decent in helping us change our arrangements. We will definitely want to visit in the future.
Stunning house in a breathtaking location
We had a tranquil stay in this beautiful apartment, just what we needed! For 3 of us, the house was luxuriously big and the living spaces perfect.
The house is very well stocked and the beds are incredibly comfortable. We could walk down to the lake in less than 5 minutes for beautiful swimming and kayaking.
The steep hill was a test of our rusty driving and parking skills, but well worth it for the location.
I will continue to recommend the property to my family and friends.
Great Penthouse apartment
The apartment was spacious, clean, well equipped, cool and quiet and we had a wonderful stay. Laurence, the owner, and the local agents were extremely helpful before and throughout our stay. Prcanj is a lovely location with some of the best views of the Bay - no photograph can do it justice, and it is a pleasure to simply sit on the balconies and admire. There is a convenience store at the foot of the hill, plus Prcanj is blessed with a set of very nice waterside restaurants - better and cheaper than Kotor, and all worth a visit. Highly recommended. Thank you Laurence.
What a gem!
We came upon this glorious Penthouse apartment, after being unsure about whether the accommodation we'd booked previously was a genuine booking. Well, I am soooooo glad that we switched bookings to this apartment, as we really did enjoy our stay so much, honestly, ever last detail was a pleasure to be engulfed in - from the stunning views, to the amazing high quality interior design (kitchen is to die for), very comfortable beds, and the all important air-conditioning! Prcanj is a really nice little village, with a convenient shop just at the bottom of the hill from where the apartment is located. I'd also really like to mention how helpful Laurence, the owner, was over the course of our booking enquiry, and also making arrangements to have someone meet us with the keys and help orientate us. I cant recommend this rental highly enough. Thank you ever so much! :)
A Relaxing, Special Holiday
This was my first holiday to Montenegro. The penthouse apartment was located in a charming, friendly village of Prcanj. It was to a high standard with extremely spacious rooms, with a beautiful designed fully equipped kitchen and lounge that was situated perfectly on the top floor over looking the totally unobstructed stunning, striking views of the mountains and wonderful calm bay. It was a real joy to sit out on the balcony every morning having breakfast and coffee taking in the picture postcard view! The apartment had a great range of facilities including washing machine, wifi and car parking! A short stroll away 5- 10 min I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere of Prcanj village; local supermarkets, restaurants, cafes and clear, clean sea. Adventuring out I took a trip to Kotor Bay visiting the historical old town, especially the cathedral and walking the trail along the old city wall, the view was spectacular! The taxi ride was 10 mins from Prcanj and cost 7 euros, it was well worth the visit!
A great penthouse apartment and location made it an amazing, relaxing and very enjoyable holiday.
Every twist and turn presents a new beautiful view....don't forget to take your camera!

Sehr schöne Ferienwohnung mit herrlichem Ausblick!
Wir haben den Aufenthalt genossen. Es ist alles da, was man braucht. In der Nähe befinden sich mehere kleine Einkaufsläden und Restaurants. Die Sonne zeigt sich auf dieser Seite der Bucht im Herbst nicht sehr lange, das sollte man wissen. Aber nach Tivat oder Kotor ist es nicht weit.

Activity and Interests
Special interest holidays:
Walks/hiking: There are walks up the hills behind the apartment or more gentle walks around the bay. Pathways up the mountain start from various points but one from just before the Splendido hotel . Walking around the bay makes a beautiful day out. The Lovcen national park is approx 50 minutes away in the mountains above Kotor and has beautiful hiking trails. The park is signposted at a turn off on the Budva road just outside Kotor. The area is fabulous for cycling whether you want a smooth relaxed cycle along the bay or up in the more challenging routes through the Lovcen park.
Further out: The dramatic Durmitor National Park in northern Montenegro contains the most stunning mountain hiking scenery with the best maintained hiking routes.
Fishing: Many locals fish from the stone pontoons or in small local fishing boats.
The nearest bathing area is 3 minutes walk away. It consists of a small pebble beach and numerous pontoons to swim off. The beach has minimal wave action as the bay is a fjord rather like a lake. Swimming in the sea is possible from May to October unless you are made of tougher stuff when it is available all year round
Tivat airport is approx 20 minute drive. Direct flights from UK with Montenegro airlines. Dubrovnik airport in Croatia is approx 70 min drive to apartment. Direct flights from UK with BA, Thomsons, Easyjet, Flybe and Croatia Airlines. Direct flights from Dublin to Dubrovnik (Croatia) with Aerlingus, and Belfast to Dubrovnik with Jet2. Car hire and taxi’s available at airport. Buses to all major stops along Bay from Dubrovnik.
Kotor old town, walled city, old fort 7km.
Budva Beaches 29km.
Sveti Stefan 35km.
Dubrovnik Airport 60km.
Dubrovnik City 78km.
Lake Skadar 70km.
Lovcen national park 15km.
Car rental from Tivat Airport has reduced in price in recent years and larger rental companies like Hertz or Sixt have opened branches. Dubrovnik airport also offer competitive car rental prices I can send you and further information on travel and directions. Kotor and Prcanj have a great history and culture. You will really feel that you have entered a magical world out of history when you pass through the old town walls of Kotor. There are plenty of ATM/ banks, tourist shops, large selection of restaurants, outdoor sports and local daily markets selling fish, meats, cheeses etc. Prcanj is a chic mini-resort in its own right and is a really lively though relaxed quality holiday area.

By line of sight it is 120 metres from the sea or a 3 minute stroll from the nearest bathing area. The bay gets very little wave or tidal activity so there are small pebble bathing areas, pontoons and stone harbours from which to swim from. A very leisurely 10 minutes walk from the apartment is the centre of the village of Prcanj with its historic church and many waterside restaurants, cafes and marinas. A ten minute drive (7km) from the apartment will take you to the glorious UNESCO heritage old town of Kotor. Kotor Old Town offers a full range of lively evening entertainment Outside: Outside The views from the apartment overlooking Kotor bay have some of the best views from the whole bay area. There is a sun bathing area and over 25 mtrs of balcony. Private parking space is available.
