About James Head
Lily and I live in Warwickshire, England. We have an adult son and daughter. We were introduced to Montenegro in 2009 by a friend who has a nearby water front property and we fell in love with the landscape, the culture and the people. We own two properties in Montenegro, both of which are available for holidays. The Stone House, 165 Prcanj (property # 1092464) and Villa Ruza, Donja Lastva (property ref # 8368138). We purchased Villa Ruza in November 2013 when it had been neglected for decades. The renovation began in September 2016 and was finished in August 2017. Our purchase of The Stone House, 165 Prcanj – was documented by House Hunters International in 2013. This was the first ever HHI show filmed in Montenegro. It is Season 64, Episode 8. We want you to have the best holiday experience ever. We have a great team in Montenegro who are there to help you. We are available to help in any way we can with the planning of your holiday.

We had a fantastic week at the Stone House. The property is clean, airy, and spacious with amazing views and a lovely shaded outdoor seating area. We were a group of five and all of us swam several times a day in the crystal clear water right across the road. Our children (10 & 8) loved having the independence of walking to the bakery and mini marts by themselves. Jadranka and Voja who live downstairs were extremely hospitable and we enjoyed a typical Montenegrin meal cooked by them one evening. It was great to smell the fish being grilled outside before being delivered to our door!
There are plenty of great restaurants within easy walking distance of the house, all with waterfront seating. In Kotor we especially enjoyed lunch at the Galion restaurant, which is great value for the high quality of food, service and beautiful setting.
We had a rental car but you could easily get by here without one. The Red Taxi company was very reliable and can be booked by email for future trips or Whatsap for immediate service.
Other highlights for us were a 3 hour private boat trip around the bay and out to the blue cave. A visit to Perast and a drive up the hairpin road from Kotor to Lovcen.
We didn't venture far, but with a location like this you really don't need to. Highly recommend!
Exquisite in every way!
The holiday was everything we expected and so much more. The house, location, cleanliness and comfort was only the beginning. Breathtaking views from each room, perfect facilities and a local charm that I haven’t experienced anywhere else.
I cant recommend enough for future families.
Cant wait to be back!
Excellent apartment in a superb location
Really enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment. Stunning setting on the bay with fantastic views and great terrace at the back for a morning coffee. Easy access to some great places to eat and excellent communication from the owner. Thank you!
Being easy to work with and helping our guests with their holiday plans is something we take very seriously.
Very large and well appointed, great views.
A superb place to stay, stunning views of the sea and the mountains at the front and mountains to the rear. The apartment is huge as are the 2 double beds, I think you could fit four people in each bed if you are that way inclined. The clear clean sea is right across the quiet road and is so nice to swim in. Sitting on the balcony at the rear with a glass of excellent local wine, watching the boats chug along the bay is what holidays are all about. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone, a real pleasure to stay in. Guy Manning
We are pleased you liked the location and the relaxing atmosphere at The Stone House. As for the beds, they are handmade in Montenegro and as you say, provide plenty of room for everyone.
New favourite holiday destination ...
This was our first visit to Montenegro - and we were not disappointed. Whilst we knew we were in for something special from the photos on the web site, the reality is something else. This location is totally stunning - the sky really is that blue, the sea really is that clear, the mountains are really that high. A view to die for. And then the best thing is this view is right outside the window of the Stone House. It's a lovely apartment, bright, light, clean and airy, well furnished and with all the facilities you could need. We especially loved the terrace, best place for a lazy morning coffee and a welcome evening drink - and a brilliant place to watch the night sky. Great location - a selection of decent bars and restaurants, mini markets and an excellent bakery all within a few minutes walk. Kotor Old Town is a 15 minute drive away - absolutely worth exploring - if sometimes a little crowded. Worth driving to Lovcen National Park - fun to be had in the Adventure Park, nice little cafe and several degrees cooler if the Prcanj heat gets too much. We loved the Stone House and we loved Montenegro - would have loved to stay longer and we will definitely be back.
Part of the fun of sharing The Stone House with guests is enabling visitors to experience Montenegro. We think it is really cool that you would like to return to Montenegro in the future and that you and your family had such a great holiday.
Spectacular views all around of sea and mountains.
We stayed for a week at the beginning of July. Our family of 4 (2 teenagers) all loved the spacious apartment with its amazing views all around. It's all just as you see in the description and photos - we would highly recommend a stay at the Stone House and Montenegro in general. Prancj is a delightful low key relaxing little place to stay. We loved being right on the edge of the sea, being able to hang out sunbathing on our jetty, then dive straight in for a swim. Easy walking distance in either direction from the apartment are really nice seaside restaurants and bars, food was great and reasonably priced. Conveniently nearby also are several small well stocked supermarkets and a bakers. Kotor is less than 10 euro in a taxi and well worth a visit - we climbed the amazing old walls one evening. We also booked a couple of day trips as recommended by the owner - one by car high up into the mountains to Lovcen which was amazing. Our favourite though was a day out on Gracija's boat to a lovely beach accessible only by boat called Uvala Dobrec - we ate lunch at the fish restaurant there and highly recommend it. On the way back we stopped at Our Lady of the Rocks island. The owner's communication was excellent and we received a really comprehensive guidebook for our stay when we booked which gave us all the information we needed to make the most of our stay.
We are glad you enjoyed your holiday. That is the most important thing. We are pleased you found the information we provide useful. We want to share what we have learned in the last 10 years about Montenegro so you can simply enjoy your holiday.
Lord Byron was staying in Prcanj when he described Montenegro as the Pearl of the Adriatic. Montenegro is a beautiful coastal republic which faces Italy across the Adriatic Sea.
With its stunning scenery, warm Mediterranean climate and hospitable people it’s no wonder that the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) has identified it as the fastest growing holiday destination in the world. Montenegro is doing no more than recapturing the glory of its 1970’s and 80’s heyday when film stars made a beeline for its unspoiled medieval coastal towns and inviting beaches and coves.
One of the most attractive locations in Montenegro is the Bay of Kotor (Boka Kotorska) where 165 Prcanj is located. Wooded hills slope down to the sparkling water whilst medieval towns and villages built from local stone nestle at the water’s edge.
Home to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites – the ancient walled city of Kotor and Durmitor National Park – Montenegro is cherished by lovers of history and nature alike.
Porto Montenegro is a short cab ride away. It is the biggest Super yacht Marina in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea. You can combine a walk along the palm tree lined pontoons looking at the boats with exquisite water front dining. Porto Montenegro is not to be missed.
With EU accession, likely to be only a few years away and a Government determined to avoid the fate of the overdeveloped Spanish Costa's Montenegro really is a wonderful holiday destination worth exploring.
English is widely spoken. It is now taught in schools and then perfected from 'Pop songs & TV shows’. May to September the average daily temp is 28 degrees Celsius with an average of 9 hrs. of sunshine per day.
