In a country famed for its beauty, the most iconic images associated with Montenegro are of the tiny islet named Sveti Stefan. Attached to the coast by a narrow isthmus, the island was once a fortified village dating back to the 15th century. Today, Sveti Stefan is opening in phases after a painstaking renovation. This exciting transition has retained the island's historic air and the sturdy stone buildings with red-tiled roofs are as cheerful amongst the island's hardy evergreen trees as they were in centuries past.
Boating on the Adriatic, visiting the old towns of Budva and Cetinje and the beautifully-preserved baroque city of Perast, discovering the peaceful Skadar Lake and exploring the Bay of Kotor, a World Heritage Site are a few of the delights on offer in the region.
Best time to be there
April to October is considered the best time to visit with July and August being the busiest months. The summer months see a plethora of cultural activities, such as a series of festivals of music, film and art. The July festival Theatre city in Budva is a feast of classical music, performance, ballet where choirs, local and foreign artists perform.

Our recent awards
Thank you for organising a fantastic holiday (Annie Jensen) The guides and drivers were helpful considerate and polite. All the guides were informative in their own way which we found interesting. As we passed the children they were delighted to see us and practice their English 'Hello'. We spoke to local people and children, everybody was very pleasant. The cycling distances were just right, we had time to stop and take photo's and admire the scenery. It was just superb!
