About mr robin paul brown
My main interests in life are Paragliding, previously operating a full time paragliding school in the UK, now mostly I fly for pleasure and also commercial tandem paragliding. This interest started at an early age being interested in birds, I am still a keen amateur ornithologist. Being outside most of the time requires good weather and we have it here, good walking and other out door activities, great flora and fauna, strange and unusual insects and plenty of butterfly's. Its a naturalists dream location.
mr robin paul brown purchased this Villa in 2003
Why mr robin paul brown chose Lapčići
I bought the land first and slowly over three ears built the house. I spent six months looking for suitable locations,. Herceg Novi area is a planning mess, traffic and parking problems and poor beaches, Kotor bay is magnificent but has no beaches and suffers from shadow either in the morning or evening depending on which side of the fyord you are. Budva is busy, with nightlife, restuarants and cafes and good beaches, but who wants to live there? being above it all is a perfect balance for me to enjoy both sides of life.
What makes this Villa unique
great sun rises, great sunsets, great night stars, great parties, perfect peace and quiet. Close to a great National park and mountains. Close to beaches and night life.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Easily the best villa for location, views and value
This villa is an absolute gem! Set up in the hills overlooking Budva it's close enough to go into the city for the beach, dinner and drinks, but far away enough that you can enjoy the peace and quiet Montengro offers you.
The swimming pool was incredible and there were plenty of relaxation spaces dotted around the property that, even with 12 of us, we never felt crowded together.
Robin was a fantastic host, treating us like friends rather than just paying guests. He even drove up the road to pick up a few of our group that had gone for a run and didn't want to return in the heat!
If you're after a place where you can cater for groups of different energy levels then look no further. I0/10 would stay again.
Great villa with beautiful views
Robin, the host, was very helpful and friendly, already before arriving at the villa.
The location was great with beautiful views over the city Budva and with rental cars not too far from the beaches. Although, the pool was even better than the beaches :)
The kitchen was a bit small for our group (13 persons) if everyone was at breakfast at the same time. And there was no toaster!
For us it was surprising that the doors to the bedrooms were from the outside of the house, and not from a corridor inside the house. There were 6 bedrooms with 2 beds, 3 of the bedrooms with one extrabed in a balcony (not for elderly people or little kids).
Fantastic stay with an host exceptional
All was perfect during this week, we could stay at Robin’s house with family, friends, etc.
The house was perfect, with a marvellous view on The mountains and Budva.
Robin Has a lots of activities to purpose you un order to visit budva, the Montegrian landscapes and others things. You have all the necessary you need to spend a beautiful week.
Thanks a lot Robin.
Gabin and all our group
Heavenly views and sumptuous swims
We have just returned from a glorious two weeks at Villa Brownavichi We had 8 adults plus 2 children and the space was ample. Bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and functional, the living space provided shade and comfort and the several outside areas/terraces meant that we all had plenty of space to do our own thing. The villa was fully appointed including a delicious kitchen garden. The infinity pool highlighted the spectacular views and sunbathing area was spacious, clean and tidy surrounded by flower beds and greenery. The property is located at the top of a steep hill which helps to help keep you fit but also offers panoramic views of the coastline and town of Budva below you. Being about 600ft above sea level meant the temperatures at the villa were a couple of degrees cooler than down in Budva which made evenings and sleeping a more comfortable experience. We were met by Robin’s colleague Milos from the airport in his 9 seater minivan. He suggested a quick stop at the supermarket before taking us up to the villa. Throughout our time at Brownavichi nothing was too much trouble for either Milos or Robin. Milos was extremely helpful in negotiating our car hire and safe and reliable taxi services the evenings. Robin was a spectacular host who was always on hand (without being intrusive) to assist us in experiencing the best of the area. He organised a vineyard tour, national park walk and swim, paragliding and beach trips. We feel without his knowledge and connections to local people and sights we would not have had all the amazing experiences that we did. We snapped up Robin’s offer to prepare and cook us a whole lamb on the spit, accompanied by sides and potatoes, which was delicious and on hearing we wanted the kids to prepare a pizza night he spent the day getting the pizza oven hot enough to use. Robin let us access beautiful fresh ingredients from his garden, as well as pantry items to enhance our cooking. We really enjoyed Robin’s company, he shared a couple of dinners with us and took up the challenge of games night too. We have had many villa holidays but never before have we had such a personable and helpful host who takes pride in looking after his guests. learning about Montenegro. They made our holiday a wonderful experience, which we did not want to come to an end.
really a very big thank you both for the great review and for spending time here at the villa, it was a pleasure having you all and great to see a family having so much fun in each others company... I enjoyed every minute of your stay and hope to see you all again one day.
Perfekt, coming back as soon as posible
A lovely house with a fantastic infinity pool and great splendid views. The already very nice photographs do not do justice to the place, when you are there it is like paradise by the sea. The Villa in Cetinje is very well equipped place with everything and more. Spotlessly clean and very well looked after.
Robin Brown the really lovely owner clearly cared about your stay. He was very helpful, and had good ideas to make our Holidays an adventure.
A little example for his willingness was his efforts in looking for a garage for our care witch had some problems. He organized everything even a replacement car that we still could enjoy the day.
All in all we had a Perfect Holliday, thanks for everything.

Je pensais que les appréciations étaient un peu exagérées, en fait non, c'est vraiment une maison exceptionnelle, avec une vue incroyable.
Le propriétaire Robin habite dans la maison à côté et a tout fait pour rendre notre séjour agréable (il dirige Montenegro Adventure Centrer, voir sur internet et page 201 du guide évasion).
Depuis cette maison on peut rayonner dans la région (Budva, Lovcen, lac skaddar, kotor, bar...).
La plus belle maison que nous ayons louée, à un tarif abordable pour 2 familles (et il y a de la place pour 15 personnes).
N'hésitez pas !
