The Studio is in the leafy outskirts of Risan - a green oasis in the north corner of the gorgeous Bay of Kotor on the main road. It is blessed with ancient springs, woodlands, eagles and rich birdsong, including magical nightingales. Risan is an unspoiled ancient small town on the main road around the famous Bay of Kotor with a bustling Sunday market under the fragrant lime trees. There is a beach for sea bathing, 3 great waterside restaurants, 2 supermarkets, a bakery, post office, taxi rank and mobile phone kiosk. The Tourist Office is at the Roman mosiac site, and overnight visitors must register here.
Eco-House Studio is 5-10 mins uphill walk from the center of Risan. Private off road parking is immediately outside. A private car is best for day-trips to nearby highlights such as the famous ancient walled city of Kotor 30 mins drive, glitzy luxury in Porto Montenegro by road & ferry, Crkvice at 1000m above sea level, and the ruined Austrian forts. Bus timetables are limited. Taxis are available from the center of Risan.
Other things to note
The road from the town is steep and not really suitable for campervans or vehicles much larger than a normal private car or 4x4. We are happy to arrange for additional cleaning for 20 Euro. Breakfast is not included.
Risan is among the oldest settlements in the region, with its fortress from which the Illyrian Queen Teuta fought the invading Romans in the 3rd century BC. A later Roman palace built here boasts the finest Roman mosaics in the country, open for visitors every day. Under Venice for 500 years the area was also on the border with the Ottoman Empire and of the division between Rome and Byzantium. The Austro-Hungarian Empire took over after the Napoleonic Wars, building many fortresses and towns, many are undergoing conservation and renovation.
