Kotor holiday rentals – find paradise in the beautiful Bay of Kotor
Many others have swimming pools and terraces, making them perfect for couples or families who need a relaxing holiday. For those who don’t just want to relax in a Kotor holiday apartment, however, Kotor and the surrounding area can be explored on foot – the Ladder of Cattaro (Kotor in Italian) is a popular trail – or by bike. The 9th century town walls are impressive and there are many churches and castles worth visiting, particularly the Church of Luke (a most unusual church that has both a Catholic and Orthodox altar) and the Castle of San Giovanni, which provides fantastic views over the city and the bay. For a taste of Montenegro’s wine offerings, visit Mon Ami wine house. You’ll probably want to take some home to enjoy from your Kotor holiday apartment! Take a boat trip out to the Church of our Lady of the Rock, perched on a tiny island the other end of the bay, near Perast, or spend some time at the Maritime Museum of Montenegro. Kotor is most popular in July and August, but consider renting a Kotor holiday apartment in February to see the Winter Carnival and masked parade, a nod to Montenegro’s Venetian history. On February 14th they celebrate St. Tryphon’s Day – a celebration of the beginning of vine pruning season, and certainly an interesting alternative for couples who find Valentine’s a little kitschy. March sees Camellia Day and Ball, a spring festival where the lucky Lady of the Camellia is selected.
