Luxury Montenegro

You may well have seen a dreamy image of Sveti Stefan: the ludicrously photogenic islet joined to the mainland by a narrow isthmus. Its splatter of brilliantly renovated, red-roofed, 15th century stone houses are laced with evergreen trees and surrounded by translucent Adriatic shallows.

It's a seductive inviting sight, and Montenegro's most photographed asset. But it's only a tiny part of the picture. The small but perfectly preserved country, tucked into the coast below Croatia, has dramatic mountains, superb beaches and medieval architecture, mingling with ancient remains and monasteries that somehow cling to vertiginous rock faces without crampons. Understandably it's getting more and more attention.

A&K's highly qualified, multi-centre European team will let you make the most of this emerging Balkan destination. We've provided luxury travel across the continent for over a quarter of a century, with knowledgeable multi-lingual guides and long-established contacts, allowing unique insider access and experiences off the mainstream tourist radar, from tours with historians and archaeologists to wilderness walks with conservation experts, alongside seamless travel to neighbouring countries.

Enjoy a bespoke Abercrombie and Kent holiday to Montenegro in 2016 and you'll find a slice of former Yugoslavia famed for its beauty and astonishing diversity. The south coast has over 20 miles of honey sand washed by warm seas, while to the north dramatic mountains rear towards cyan blue skies; a double act that allows one of travel's holy grails: swimming in the morning and skiing in the afternoon.

Less energetically, you can visit stunningly located Kotor - some believe its beautiful bay is Europe's most southerly fjord, but it's actually a submerged river canyon - where the Venetian architecture, along with showstoppers like the Cathedral of St Tryphon, have earned a UNESCO listing.

Head south to explore Budva, one of the Adriatic's oldest settlements dating back to the 5th century BC. Following massive restoration, its Venetian architecture shows little damage from a devastating 1979 earthquake. It's just six kilometres from Sveti Stefan, the divine islet now sporting the pared back elegance of Aman hotels. It's a sign that while uncrowded Montenegro is changing and developing, it retains its myriad charms. As A&K will happily show you, there will never be a better time to visit.

Guest Testimonial

My wife, Cindy, and I travelled with A&K this September. Saying that we were “very satisfied” would be an understatement. I did not feel that the survey I received provided a way for me to say how satisfied we are and to commend some individuals.
