Why Choose a Self Catering Apartment in Prcanj, Kotor Bay, Montenegro?

Prcanj is a fairly large village made up of beautiful old stone houses in the Venetian style stretched out along the coastal road that hugs the shores of Kotor Bay. The scenery is stunning with towering mountains of black rock circling the crystal clear waters of what is Europe’s southern most Fjord.

The water is a lovely temperature for swimming and the best snorkelling spot is the area is just off the Pension Riviera in Prcanj.

Just 4 km away and you’ll find Kotor Old Town, one of the best preserved Medieval centers in Europe, a maze of cobbled streets hiding ancient churches, fashion boutiques and open air cafes. The ban on vehicles makes it wonderfully relaxing to wander around. To get a birds eye view of Kotor and the bay, it is possible to climb the steps that make up part of the ancient fortifications to a fort at the top, the climb makes the already breathtaking view that much more… breathtaking.
