Apartment in Palazzo Lucovic in Prcanj, Kotor, Montenegro - 10 Minutes from Heritage Town of Kotor
We are a professional couple with two children who fell in love with Montenegro when we first visited in 2007. We wanted an old property first line to the sea and were very excited when we found the ground floor of our palace as it was a shell and working with the builder we suggested how we wanted it. We wanted to create a baroque/modern feel with the best quality building materials we could find locally. We scoured the area for tiles and furniture. We hope you like the main bathroom with the marble walls running into the original stone. The bed in the main bedroom came from Italy and our daughters call it the Princess bed. What do we most love about Montenegro? Being picked up in the morning by Nikoli in his boat and having a day swimming in the Boka!
Cora purchased this Apartment in 2006

What makes this Apartment unique
Most definitely the view. Then breakfast on the terrace, being able to dive off our own punta (jetty) the friendliness of the people, the amazing food, the weather. Having the mini market just within a few yards is also great and if we have friends with young children they can go into the shallow water just beside the jetty and paddle.

Beautiful apartment, gorgeous setting
We spent a week in this fabulous apartment which proved to be a perfect hideaway, totally unspoiled by tourism, amazing panoramic views of the mountains and bay of Kotor. Wonderful sense of tranquility as we sat on the punta and watched the cruise ships sail by. In a great location, with all amenities in close proximity - restaurants, supermarket, bakery etc. It was a great base for exploring - only 5km from Kotor, with its winding cobbled streets, good restaurants/bars. The apartment was so spacious, furnished to a very high standard, very clean and well presented. We are definitely planning a return trip... and would highly recommend Montenegro as a holiday destination.
Thank you for your review and great that you had such a good time.
A step back in time
Prcanj is from a time long gone our son who was 15 at the time had never seen anything like it! That said it was charming & it really felt like a get away from it all holiday.
The apartment was roomy and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The punta was amazing, our play thing by day and restaurant by night. Candle lit suppers as we watched the world go by on land and water.
Kotor was very close and very buzzing for those who like things more lively but we loved the sleepy feel of Prcanj, the views are some of the best we have ever had. That said there is no shortage of grocery stores and restaurants. It felt like the bakery never shut, fresh bread all day long, fantastic!
A truly relaxing holiday in an amazingly beautiful place - we will be back
A fantastic space in a beautiful setting
The apartment is very spacious with superb decor as well as practicalities taken care of (plenty of cutlery, glasses, plates etc.). The main room is well laid out and allowed for enjoyable evenings in. Outside there are two restaurants very close by (both serving very nice food) and a convenient little store also just next door. Although these establishments are very close I never noticed any loud noise coming from them into the apartment. There is a wonderful bakery about a 10 minute walk away that sells very nice bread and pastries. The walk to Kotor (the nearest town) is about 40 minutes at a leisurely pace with a few more restaurants on the way. The walk is lovely and has fantastic views of the water the whole way along. The itself has many larger supermarkets as well as traditional markets selling fresh fish and veg etc. The old town is full of nice restaurants and a walk up the town walls is highly recommended for the wonderful views it provides at the top. Swimming (or kayaking) is very easy as access to the water is right outside the apartment. The bedrooms are very comfortable and the bathrooms have all the appropriate facilities (washing machine/dryer, ironing board etc.). Overall a wonderful stay.
Beautiful apartment and location...heavenly stay
Palazzo Lucovic was a special place to have stayed. The apartment exceeded our expectations, it was very comfortable, spacious and met our needs in every way. The location of the Palazzo, and the use of the punta made the stay even more enjoyable and the village was perfect for us. It is a truly lovely village, and it made a great base for us both for walking locally and kayaking. We also visited and explored (amongst other places) Lovćen National Park several times and we bowled over by its beauty and majesty. The 25 hair pin bends on the way up to that area made for an exciting and breath taking journey.
We were particularly well looked after by the staff at Boka Bay restaurant, they could not have been kinder or more helpful, and we had delicious meal there. Furthermore, the neighbours to the property were so helpful and generous and again this made our stay in Prćanj special. We rented kayaks (from Bobo) and spent 6 days thoroughly enjoyable and memorable days kayaking to the local villages along the coastline of Kotor Bay. Bobo was very friendly, informative, generous and helpful. Even managed to do some food shopping from the market in Kotor and paddle it back to the Palazzo…..fancy my next trip to the supermarket will feel even blander than usual!
Thank you again. This first trip to Montenegro was very special and it has inspired to visit again.
Great location with excellent views
This place is located right on the water he water with a nice punt for enjoying a peaceful cup of coffee in the morning. Kotor is about 5 minutes by car and Tivat is just 20 minutes by car. There is a tavern next door, a well stocked market 1 minute walk away and a bakery about 5 minutes walk away. Great spot.
Property was beautiful and well situated.
Accommodation was everything we had hoped for, spotlessly clean, spacious, and well prepared, with welcoming bits and pieces as an added delight. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Montenegro and found this beautiful property a superb base for exploration of the area.We had been given good advice where to visit and what to see. We had also been recommended the best restaurants in the area. We would recommend it to anyone, and will definitely return.
