About Chris Harrop-Griffiths, Greg Harrop-Griffiths
We love Montenegro, both its physical beauty and the warmth and hospitality of its people. We have invested a lot of time and effort to ensuring Palmagora fits in with the locality. We built in stone, and have tried to continue the natural theme on the inside. The kitchens are wood, with granite work tops, the floors are tiled and we have used natural materials wherever possible. We have tried to combine the old with the new, in terms of modern cookers, fridge/freezers, air-con, without detracting from the local beauty. We have done everything we can to help you enjoy your stay with us. We live in the UK, Mum (Chris) in Derbyshire, son (Greg) in London. We love visiting Montenegro and introducing our friends to this beautiful location. Chris is a University Lecturer and Greg an international business executive - he is the one with the multiple language skills!

Why Chris Harrop-Griffiths, Greg Harrop-Griffiths chose Tivat
If you want a peaceful location in a beautiful situation but to be within a short drive of Tivat and Kotor then this is the place for you.Tivat is the home of the super yacht marina Porto Montenegro, whilst Kotor is a UNESCO world heritage site walled town. Both have a wide variety of bars and restaurants. Kotor hosts a variety of festivals over the year including music and dance, all worth a visit. There are a wealth of activities in the area- walking, sailing, cycling, fishing, sightseeing or just relaxing on the beach. The new water park opened near Budva is a great place for the whole family. All apartments have their own private balcony or terrace if you want privacy, or you can sit on the communal terrace overlooking the pool, chatting to other guests. We have installed cable tv and internet in each apartment if you want to keep in touch from your country idyll.
What makes this Apartment unique
We are delighted to announce yet another reason to choose Palma Gora for your holiday. Our lovely neighbour Elaine is a professional chef with an excellent pedigree. She worked as a chef on private super yachts for eleven years, owned a Thai restaurant in Mexico and has cooked in many exotic locations. Having sailed into Boka Bay one day she was so overwhelmed by the natural beauty that she decided to settle here in Montenegro. We are of course delighted that she chose to buy a part of the farmhouse next to us. Elaine can offer cookery courses based in Palma Gora, or she can shop, prepare and present meals for you if you have had a tiring day out or simply want to treat yourselves. Look at her website to see the range of services on offer. In addition to providing a private chef service, Elaine will prepare a meal for your arrival and leave it in the fridge so you do not need to worry about cooking on the first night. If you are interested in this service I will put you in touch with Elaine, who will send you sample menus and prices. The area is ideal for walking. Look at the photos to see the view fro ma walk just 10 minute drive away - it takes you along the mountain ridge behind the property and gives the most amazing views - the Kotor Fjord on one side and the sea on the other. Quite breathtaking! There are a couple of photos from this walk among the photos selection.

Beautiful views from a lovely property
Palma Gora offers beautiful views down towards Tivat, and you are surrounded by lush hills dotted with churches and farmhouses.
We stayed in the Valley apartment, which has a large, private terrace at the back, from which you can gaze over the valley (and spend your evening listening to distant farmers and hunters in the hills).
The apartement was spacious, comfortable and extremely well equipped, including a washing machine, dishwasher and satellite TV.
Bogdasici is conveniently located just up the hill from the outskirts of Tivat. If you like hiking, there are trails that lead away from right outside the villa, and others very nearby. There are shops (including several supermarkets) a short drive away. And we'd highly recommend the grill at the bottom of the hill behind the kiosk and shop (but that's between you and me so that we can keep it as a hidden gem).
Tivat itself is a nice place to spend time. There are public (pebbly) beaches, a lovely waterfront, and the glamorous Porto Montenegro with its superyachts and fine restaurants. You are, of course, ideally located for all the stunning sights of the Boka Kotarska.
Tivat airport is just at the bottom of the hill (but it doesn't cause a nuisance, don't worry), so it's perfect if you're lucky enough to be able to fly direct there. If not, Dubrovnik airport is 1-2 hours away, depending on traffic.
Vesna was a welcoming and helpful host and will keep you right with local recommendations.
For animal lovers, next door's cats are very friendly, especially the ginger one.
We had a lovely time here; highly recommended.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review
We are so glad you had such an enjoyable holiday
We hope we may be able to welcome you back again one day

Thank you so much Peter
We are so pleased that you had a lovely holiday and hope that we may be able to welcome you back again
The surrounding area is beautiful. The apartment nestles against mountains where eagles can be seen occasionally soaring against the mountains and tree line. Yet the sea is only a short distance away and the views from the pool terrace are directly over the sea. Just 10 minutes from Tivat airport, a 5 euro taxi drive from Porto Montengro and 10 euro drive from Kotor and the amazing Fjord. Lovcen National Park is only a 20 to 30 minute drive away and there are the most amazing walks on the doorstep. It is possible to walk on the mountain ridge above us and see the Fjord on one side and the Adriatic Sea on the other. Yet the site is so peaceful often the only sounds are of wildlife.
A real country idyll but within easy reach of fantastic bars and restaurants and beaches.
