    You will be met at Dubrovnik airport with a private transfer over the Croatian border into one of the most picturesque countries in Europe. Montenegro may be one of the smallest countries in Europe, but is undeniably large in every other way – from its dramatic vistas and endless coastline to its magnificently preserved architecture. Popular among tourists in the 60s and 70s, the country became known as the “St Tropez of the Adriatic” for its pristine beaches and glamour.

    You will drive alongside the Kotor Bay which is Europe’s most southern Fjord. The intimate Boutique Hotel Forza Mare is ideally located in Dobrata, close to Kotor with a private beach and luxury spa and is in a perfect position to explore the charming town of Kotor.

      Day 2 Guided tour of Kotor & Perast

      Kotor

      Our English-speaking local guide will meet you after breakfast for the private guided tour of the charming and historic towns of Kotor and Perast. The atmospheric, walled city of Kotor was built between the 12th and 14th centuries.

      It is a medieval maze of winding streets and squares, fascinating museums, Romanesque churches, the dazzling cathedral and Venetian palaces and pillories. Further around the bay, the baroque town of Perast is the site of a famous victory against the Ottomans. Take a private boat tour from Perast towards the charming island, ‘Lady of the Rocks’ and explore the 17th-century church. Take in the glorious views of Boka Bay before taking a refreshing dip whilst marvelling at the dazzling ‘Blue Cave.’

        DAY 3 Kotor – Day of leisure

        Kotor view

        Enjoy the immediate surroundings of your luxury boutique hotel at the waterfront of Boka Bay with breathtaking views over the Bay of Kotor. Enjoy the peace and quiet of the luxurious private beach.

        Take a stroll through Kotor’s atmospheric and historic streets that Napoleon once walked, set within a truly stunning backdrop. Enjoy the meandering coastline, backed by dramatic limestone mountains and the serene blue waters of the Adriatic. Take a visit to Sveti Stefan, a famous islet with a jumble of 15th century stone villas overlooking the turquoise waters, the most photographed place in Montenegro!

          DAY 4 Private transfer to Dubrovnik

          Dubrovnik old town

          You will be met by our driver for your private transfer, over the border, to Dubrovnik which is renowned to be one of the most beautiful UNESCO-listed cities in the world. You will pass Cavtat and the Konavle region on route to the city. You will check into the Hotel Kompas, a luxurious 4-star hotel, adjacent to a beach and with an attractive outdoor swimming pool.

          The city is simply brimming with marbled streets, imposing medieval architecture and a host of awe-inspiring defensive walls, churches and palaces. Sample the local cuisine in one of the many fabulous restaurants in the city, some of which boast sweeping views of the Adriatic coastline.

You will explore the city gates (Pile, Ploce or Buza) and take a stroll down the Stradun, the widest and longest street in Old Town. Admire Onofrio’s fountain and the Orlando’s statue and experience the stunning Sponza and Rector’s Palaces.

            To explore Dubrovnik further, walk the stunning Old City walls, with St John’s, Bokar and Minceta tower forts along the way, for breathtaking views of Dubrovnik’s surroundings and watching waves crash into the fortifications. For a stunning sunset, take the cable car up Srdj hill, offering the stunning panorama of Dubrovnik and Elaphiti islands and treat yourself to a cocktail at the summit!

              DAY 6 Explore Lokrum Island (optional)

              For a day surrounded by nature and tranquillity, catch the ferry to the Lokrum island nature reserve with its beautiful wild beaches and the remains of a 12th-13th century Benedictine monastery of St Mary and a cloister garden.

              Enjoy a peaceful day, surrounded by Lokrum’s locals: peacocks and wild bunnies. There is café offering light refreshments, but we would advise that you bring your own picnic from the delicious local markets that offer fresh delicacies in Dubrovnik.
