A perfect location on the Bay of Kotor
We had a fabulous fortnight in Pine Tree Villa. The villa is in the most amazing spot - 100 steps down to the water and a lovely swimming and sunbathing spot, so much quieter than the resorts across the other side of the bay. The house was even better than it looked on the photos and the 6 bedrooms were spacious and comfortable.
The roads around the bay were jam packed with August holiday traffic so we didn't drive far, but we had a couple of boat trips to Kotor, Perast, the blue caves, etc, which is definitely the best way to see the area.
There were loads of places to eat - we went into Igalo or Herceg Novi (5/10 mins drive) most days - the prices were around half what you'd pay in touristy spots in France. (e.g. 5 ice creams for 3.5 Euros!) Meals were similarly cheap, and the food on offer was great - seafood, grills, pizzas, pastas, risottos, etc.
It was really hot but the fans in the rooms made it a lot more bearable at night. The mosquitoes/biting insects were a bit of a pain, as they are in lots of Mediterranean areas - take lots of repellent and bite cream!
The only (minor) downside in the house was the kitchen which was pretty small - fine for 5 but would have been difficult to cater for 8 or 10 people. But we ate out loads so it wasn't really an issue for us. The washing machine was broken while we were there but we just washed the essentials by hand and they were dry in half an hour.
Overall an amazing location in a very beautiful part of the world. We were genuinely sad to leave.
If you want to be on the water in Montenegro and close to a town and facilities but still have some peace and quiet this place is for you. The hamlet of Njivice is lovely and peaceful but close enough to Egalo and Hercog Novi to be easily accessible by car. The proximity to and view of the water is the real value here with the water only a short set of stairs away.
A lovely house in a great location!
Pine Tree Villa was a great place for our family to stay in the Bay of Kotor. Njivice is a good location - close enough to Herceg Novi for its facilities and life but away from the coast road which separates a lot of houses from the shore. The house has a lovely feel - white walls, cool stone stairs and parquet bedroom floors - shutters and mosquitos nets a definite plus. Lots of bedrooms for our children, and three shower rooms too. Excellent terrace, with wonderful views, and the private jetty, from which the kids swam every day. On the downside it was a bit tricky getting our van into the parking area, but got easier with practice, and it is a shame they have built next door, but overall a great house and excellent value for money.
It makes us very happy to hear you and your family enjoyed your stay at Pine Tree Villa. It’s hard not to love the location and the spectacular views. The crystal clear waters are certainly a draw for the children.
We would be happy to have you stay again in the future.

Perfect location overlooking the sea
The Pine Tree Villa is perfect for holiday in family. The large terrace overlooking the sea is sunny for breakfast and shade provided by the bamboos is welcomed during the afternoons.
The house was very clean and comfortable and all the equipement for a baby was available (high chair,baby cot).
The sea is reachable by foot through a stair (around 100 steps) and you can enjoy a private deck.
Inna who was in charge of the check-in and check-out was always very helpful, during our whole stay and very responsive to our whatsapp messages.
I highly recommend the Pine Tree Villa if you want to spend dream holidays!
Thank you so much for your very kind review of your stay at Pine Tree Villa. We hope to welcome you back in the future.
Best Wishes from ourselves and the Montenegro team,

The perfect, quiet base, in breath-taking scenery, to relax or explore Montenegro and Croatia.
We stayed for two weeks as a family of 11, including my 85 year old father, 2 teenagers and a toddler. Montenegro Living staff were brilliant. All the communications were great and Inna met us at the villa with some groceries to get us going. The villa was perfect for us; very comfortable and well equipped and the view is utterly stunning. My father spent many happy afternoons on his balcony, or on the terrace. The rest of us enjoyed the jetty, sunbathing and swimming – the water is crystal clear. There are about 100 steps down to the jetty, so not for anyone with walking difficulties. At mealtimes we all sat round the terrace table and enjoyed the view across to Herceg Novi.
The bedrooms were all comfortable, each with electric fans to keep us cool at night. Bathrooms too were all fine and worked well for our large party. The kitchen was small but functional – an oven would have been useful but we managed fine with the hob and microwave. The fridge is a little small for such a large party, but there is a much larger fridge freezer in the outbuilding. The barbeque was great and got a lot of use. The Wi-fi worked like a dream throughout the stay.
The parking for 2 cars is great, as the road through the village is narrow. The local friendly shop is a 1 min walk away, providing all the basics you need, and the attached restaurant is great too; we ate there 3 times during the stay. The nearest supermarket is about a 5 min drive – you can get everything there.
The villa is very close to the smaller Croatian border at Konfin. This is much quieter than the one at Debeli Brijeg (where I’m told you can wait for hours). So if you’re flying, you could choose Dubrovnik airport, although most of our party chose Tivat, which was fine. Tip: We drove to Dubrovnik at 6am, got there by 7.30 and had breakfast in the old town before the cruise ship tourists arrived – it was cool, quiet and beautiful.
We did driving tours to Herceg Novi, Kotor, Dubrovnik and Njegos Mausoleum – all recommended. We also hired a boat and skipper for a daytrip to Kotor; that was a great day! We also did kayaking from Herceg Novi, and river rafting in the Tara Canyon – great fun!
We had a couple of very minor problems with the villa during the stay and both were promptly sorted by Inna and the team, and on departure Inna was there to see us off.
The only slight drawback is the party noise from Igalo across the bay at night, though we managed to ignore it most of the time.
We and the Montenegro Living team were so happy to read your very full and positive review of your stay at Pine Tree Villa. It’s so nice to know that everything came up to your expectations. We would be more than happy to welcome you again in the future.

Beautiful destination, the house was clean and nice and our contact person Branca very friendly
We were 7 adults celebrating my mother’s birthday so we wanted everything to go smoothly. The house was clean, everything functioned the way it was supposed to and the location by the sea was perfect. Our host, Branca was very helpful, she arranged everything we might have needed during our stay. We highly recommend this house for a relaxed stay in Montenegro.
The village of Njivice sits across the bay from Herceg Novi, which is only a short 10 minute drive away.
