We stayed for a week at the beginning of July. Our family of 4 (2 teenagers) all loved the spacious apartment with its amazing views all around. It's all just as you see in the description and photos - we would highly recommend a stay at the Stone House and Montenegro in general. Prancj is a delightful low key relaxing little place to stay. We loved being right on the edge of the sea, being able to hang out sunbathing on our jetty, then dive straight in for a swim. Easy walking distance in either direction from the apartment are really nice seaside restaurants and bars, food was great and reasonably priced. Conveniently nearby also are several small well stocked supermarkets and a bakers. Kotor is less than 10 euro in a taxi and well worth a visit - we climbed the amazing old walls one evening. We also booked a couple of day trips as recommended by the owner - one by car high up into the mountains to Lovcen which was amazing. Our favourite though was a day out on Gracija's boat to a lovely beach accessible only by boat called Uvala Dobrec - we ate lunch at the fish restaurant there and highly recommend it. On the way back we stopped at Our Lady of the Rocks island. The owner's communication was excellent and we received a really comprehensive guidebook for our stay when we booked which gave us all the information we needed to make the most of our stay.
Our holiday at the Stonehouse was great. The accommodation was roomy and spacious and set in a beautiful location. I would certainly recommend without any hesitation.
We had a wonderful holiday staying in The Stone House in Prcanj. The house is comfortable, clean and well-equipped and the house book was full of useful instructions and recommendations. In particular, we had a delicious meal cooked for us by Jadranka, who lives below and we also had a really enjoyable boat trip to Our Lady of the Rocks and Perast with Gracija - both recommendations in the book.
The views from the house over the Bay are incredible and there is also a relaxing covered terrace at the back of the house. There's a small pebbled beach area right in front of the house for sunbathing and swimming and the village has a lovely, laid back, friendly atmosphere.
Our short stay at the Stone House Prcanj revitalised my soul. From the moment we arrived we were warmly welcomed by the team and shown how everything worked. The apartment was immaculate and exquisitely furnished. The huge emperor size bed with must be the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. We found that all the places of interest around the bay including Kotor are easily reached by bus and taxi, so we were quite happy without a hire car. There are outdoor restaurants (Konoba)dotted all around the bay, all with their own unique charm. Our favourite, just a 5 minute walk from the apartment is the delightful fish restaurant Bokeski Gusti a favourite of the locals where you can enjoy a fish platter right on the water. Waking up every day to the stunning view from the apartment window took my breathe away. For now, I do not know of anywhere more beautiful, where it is possible to swim in perfectly clear calm waters with the view of the most awe-inspiring mountain range. This place has everything, I wanted for nothing except to come back soon!
We stayed in the Stone house with our 3 children and had an amazing holiday. The views from the apartment were incredible - so close to the sea that as you heard the waves lap beneath the bedroom window, you felt as though you were on a boat. We used the jetty directly beneath the apartment for sunbathing, going out in an inflatable rowing boat, or swimming and could have stayed for much longer than the week that we were there!
The apartment was well equipped, and when it was too hot to be on the jetty, the shaded terrace at the back of the apartment provided a welcome break from the heat, but also still had a great view.
The driver from the airport recommended by the owner was excellent and also arranged car hire for us for a couple of days so that we could explore further afield. Otherwise it was very easy and cheap to get local taxis if visiting the bay of Kotor or Porto Montenegro. Similarly the owner recommended someone to take us on a private boat trip of Kotor Bay, who was very helpful, so we were able to rely on a personal recommendation rather than an internet search!
There was a choice of nice restaurants in the village, all directly on the waters edge, as well as a bakery, couple of supermarkets and a take away pizza palace, so one didn't need to move far to eat, though a trip to Porto Montenegro one evening to people watch is well worth it.
All in all, highly recommended, and the owner was always swift to respond and gave us so much information about the area and how best to arrange things, that it was all very simple to arrange.
I have been spending my holidays in James' property in Prcanj with my family in Jul-Aug 2017. This is great locations for holidays with kids or friends - beautiful and fully equipped apartment with all what you need, just a few steps from the sea. Tou can see your kids swimming from the window :-). Very effective and fast communication with the owner, great hospitality from neighbors. Good food and fantastic landscape. Not yet overcrowded even in the season. When travelling by car from Croatia, plan good time margin for border crossing.
I used to tell my friends, “I don’t do repeat holidays”, having convinced myself that the pleasures of discovering and exploring somewhere new would always beat the allure of somewhere already visited. But the Stone House Prcanj called to me a second time and I could not resist. My holiday experience was brilliant (again). The magnificent views of the Bay of Kotor from the superbly-appointed house were as majestic as ever but a slight rearrangement of terrace furniture now gives another Bay vista to enjoy. Watching the vessels large and small busily going in and out of Kotor City as dusk settles and the silver mountains melt into the night sky is an unforgettable and beautiful sight. The Bay in daylight is still unequalled for its natural beauty; we visited in May to early June and the mild temperature of the sea made swimming balmy and refreshing. I still can’t quite believe that a dozen steps outside the front door is a jetty from which visitors can access the calm, azure waters. There are a few more konobas (restaurant/bars) dotted along the Prcanj road than were here two years ago which now gives six or seven very good quality food outlets within easy walking distance of the Stone House. The Dado supermarket is brilliant for supplies and is only a two minute walk away. The local beer Niksicko is highly recommended.
We travelled about a bit more this time relying on the Blue Line bus (1 euro takes you anywhere!) and the red taxis (I never paid more than 12 euros): Porto Montenegro is still one of the best places in the world to see superyachts and a number of our fellow-travellers enjoyed a day’s sailing at fabulous rates. Kotor City, a World Heritage Site, is an architectural marvel. Only three miles from the Stone House, it is within easy and affordable reach. With many of its mediaeval buildings from the Venetian period still intact within a gravity-defying defensive wall Kotor is a place one can go back to again and again. There are numerous shops, restaurants and bars and on this visit we discovered the beauty of Kotor Cathedral and the interesting Maritime museum. Watch out for the famous Kotor Cats which inhabit the city. Better-fed than the scrawny Roman Colosseum cats, these sleek felines are revered and spoiled by locals who thank their ancestors for killing all the rats during the Plague years and thus saving the City. I would recommend at least one boat trip around the bay just to soak up the atmosphere of the views from the water. A visit to the island Church of Our Lady on the Rocks is breath-taking. When we got there a marriage party was in full swing making the little island even happier than usual.
There is now an at home-dining service at the Stone House where Jadranka the caretaker and a magnificent chef will prepare delicious home-cooked food and deliver it to you from her flat just one floor below. We ate in twice and it was delicious. My wife and I LOVE The Stone House so much we are going back for our THIRD visit in August. Holiday experiences really do not come any better than this. UNRESERVEDLY RECOMMENDED.
