“We had the most unbelievable holiday in Richard and Ann’s stunning home. The house itself is perfect with views over the mountains and lakes. Richard and Ann were very helpful giving us lots of local information. The garden is like Eden! We ate most of our meals eating off the vines, fruits and vegetables growing there. Richard and Ann were very clear about the steep climb up to the house, but our 6 year old managed it without any problems. It’s a close drive to most of the highlights of Montenegro and we did a trip to a lake or town on most days. Thanks again! ”

About our home
This early 17th century Montenegrin stone farmhouse has spectacular sea and mountain views and has been lovingly restored and newly modernised by the owners – a writer and director of a property company. It is the perfect location for exploring one of the world's most beautiful and undiscovered countries.
Roza Kuca (the Pink House) is a family home, which looks out over the magnificent Bay of Kotor and the Adriatic sea, as well as Lovcen, Montenegro’s most famous mountain. It is surrounded by 5 tiny churches and is less than half an hour’s drive from several popular beaches.
Montenegro has a long and dramatic coastline with mountains plunging directly down to the sea. The country is the undiscovered jewel of Eastern Europe and is once again becoming a destination for film stars, artists and outdoor enthusiasts. It is located across the Adriatic sea from Italy and directly south of Croatia, just over two hours flight from London.
Roza Kuca has a romantic flower-filled stone courtyard with a spacious stone summerhouse including a charming summer kitchen for cooking outdoors and several other small gardens.
The house has a large open-plan kitchen/dining/living area with a cast-iron wood burning stove as well as a utility room and two bathrooms. It has two sizeable bedrooms (one with a sofa and its own ‘secret’ garden) and additional sleeping in the penthouse (which covers the whole top floor) and the summerhouse. The penthouse has a surround-sound cinema system and satellite TV. Roza Kuca comfortably sleeps up to seven people and is child friendly with a cot, safety gates and a swing.
The house is located in a beautiful rural setting up 119 stone steps in the friendly 430m-high village of Bijelske Krusevice and is close to the airports of Tivat (20 minutes) and Dubrovnik (75 minutes) and just 10 minutes from the Boka Bay car ferry service in Kamenari. Competent 4x4 drivers can drive through the fields directly from the road to the house with luggage and shopping in about 5 minutes. There is parking for several cars at the bottom of the steps and for a 4-wheel drive jeep outside the house itself. A jeep is available for swapping.
It is just over half an hour’s drive from the historic Unesco-protected Venetian towns of Perast and Kotor and the bustling seaside resort of Herceg Novi. It is also close to Porto Montenegro, the new super-yacht marina complex built by Nat Rothschild and Peter Munk.
There is fantastic walking and hiking nearby in the extensive village olive groves and longer walks over the mountains directly at the back of the house. Montenegro – a constitutionally defined ecological state – offers hikers and nature lovers one of the biggest butterfly and wild flower populations in the whole of Europe. It is also a paradise for beach lovers, sailors, anglers and outside sports enthusiasts. Packed with forts, monasteries and churches, it is a treasure for those interested in the history of the Venetian and Austro-Hungarian empires. There is a reliable and cheap local taxi service available.
The nearest small grocery shops are located within 10 minutes drive from the village.
The owners have an office team on hand for advice and assistance in cases of serious need or emergency.

Richard and Ann's reviewsAs a host (3) As a guest (1)
“Richard and Ann have a lovely house, beautifully finished and with amazing views over the bay and surround by natural mountainside. It's comfortable, warm and the solitude is peaceful. Lovely walks from the house. However, access is via a two and half mile deteriorating single track road containing many switchbacks, few passing places and shear drops. You definitely need to be a confident driver. Once near the property vechicle access is really only by 4x4 or it is a 250m unlit flight of uneven steps. Not easy if carrying bottled drinking water (required) or shopping, we did have help with luggage. Local amenities are limited and then only at sea level, 2.5 miles away. We really enjoyed our week at the property. Montenegro is a beautiful country!”
“This is a gorgeous house in a beautiful setting, views over the Bay of Kotor. There is a wonderful terrace to relax on teeming with flowers and plants. It is as remote and quiet as you can get - a perfect getaway. The house itself is extremely comfortable and there is a beautiful space for relaxing on the top floor. There is so much to see and do in the local area - we visisted local towns, beaches and national parks and swam in the sea/bay every day even though it was late October. Thanks so much Richard and Ann. ”
“Richard and Ann were the perfect guests - good communication from start to finish. It was lovely to hear about what they did during their time in London and they checked in on a couple of things just before leaving to ensure we were fully up to date. We were very happy to be able to host them in their trip back to the UK and would highly recommend them as guests!”
