Villa Ruza is a traditional, detached stone built house located right on the seafront (first line) of Tivat Bay in the village of Donja Lastva. Villa Ruza has 2 floors, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and is available for up to 6 guests. Villa Ruza is fully air conditioned so you are in control of the temperature, detached with a beautiful terrace facing the sea. Villa Ruza was completely renovated to the highest standards in 2017 and is now available for families and friends to enjoy. At Villa Ruza we have combined the benefits of traditional local materials with all the conveniences of modern living. Villa Ruza faces west and enjoys the sun all day and the most amazing sunsets as the sun sinks over Tivat Bay and behind the mountains. Behind are the mountains which separate us from the Bay ...Villa Ruza is a traditional, detached stone built house located right on the seafront (first line) of Tivat Bay in the village of Donja Lastva.

We are glad you enjoyed swimming in the sea. Villa Ruza is all about being around the sea, rather than simply having views of the sea.

About the neighbourhood
You can swim in the sea right in front of Villa Ruza. Just around the corner is a safe, gently sloping beach. The Church of St Roko is our other neighbour. I recommend you look inside. Don Nikola (the priest) is very welcoming. The church bells ring between 07:00 and 22:00 daily. On the hour and every half hour. It is all part of the charm. The area is very popular with visiting artists who enjoy painting the sea, sky and mountains. There are plenty of opportunities to sail at Porto Montenegro where they have a fleet of J70’s and Blu 26’s available for rent. I can make all the introductions there. If you like architecture then the ancient Venetian city of Kotor is just one local example in the UNESCO protected Bay of Kotor.
Getting around
Once you book your holiday with us I will share the House Book which provides loads of information on how to get around. If you need an airport transfer, or you want to go on a trip deeper into the country then I can arrange that for you. If you are planning your holiday in the peak months of July and August then I would not hire a car. You can order a taxi which will collect you from Villa Ruza with 10 minutes notice. You can also travel on the local 'Blue Line' bus which costs €1 per person for as far as you want to travel on that bus. There is a bus stop 100 meters from Villa Ruza, and you can pretty much get off where you want.
