“Another superb stay it the Villa Ruza”

person found this review helpful

This was my second visit to the Villa Ruza.

Villa Ruza is a cool and comfortable property that made our stay in Montenegro really superb. I could walk out of the house each morning and swim in the warm water in front of the house and take breakfast on the patio in the shade of Bougainvillea at the front of the property with breathtaking views of the mountains and the sea before you. It was very hot that week but the stone house remained cool and airy and the air-conditioning enabled a great nights sleep. To sum up, Villa Ruza did not disappoint, from its cool antique ships lighting to its high quality furnishing and remarkable stone floor. The large beds are very comfortable, the house is spotlessly clean, the bathrooms are excellent and the kitchen is well equipped. The friendly and responsive local team make sure everything is perfect. The local community are very welcoming, from the grocery shop a few minutes walk away to the fish restaurant and bar very close by where the owner Zoran will prepare fish he has caught earlier that day for dinner. We Lived like a locals in luxury and will definitely return again!

I think you captured the essence of the Villa Ruza experience. Luxury seafront accommodation in the heart of the community.

“Magnificent Waterfront Villa”
Reviewed 27 July 2019 for a stay in July 2019

After a leisurely 1hr 40 drive from Podgorica Airport through stunning scenery, and a wonderful lunch stop on the shores of Lake Skadar we descended from the mountains arriving at the Bay of Kotor and Villa Ruza. The Villa sits a few metres back from the water in a little square complete with a small church and a great local cafe/restaurant. A lovely old building the villa has been brought right up to date - a few years ago think, but, we felt like we must be the first guests it felt so fresh. The owners have kept the sense of character whist adding all modern conveniences and the whole property is light, airy and spacious the views from the bedrooms are tremendous. Outside a well tended garden with a fine stone table provides areas of shade to sit if it gets to hot with some very comfy loungers to lie in if you are instead working on your tan! It's also a great spot to to spy what fish the cafe owner "Zoran" has caught that day for your dinner.
We had a car but taxis are cheap and the Bay is so worth exploring. Kotor is perfect for losing yourself in and the castle towering above the town supplies the best views - a serious trek up and don't try it in the heat of the summer, we went in first thing one morning and were back down by 09.30.
We found two bikes at the house and these got used every day for popping to the supermarkets 3 mins away or riding down into Porto Montenegro where the millionaires and billionaires keep their ocean going play things.
All in all we had a fantastic break as a family group. Mum , Dad two adult children and a Grandma. Nobody was ever bored and all agreed we would love to visit again

Amazing family holidays are at the core of what we want to achieve at Villa Ruza. Glad the garden was looking great too. We have terrific gardners who do a great job with the help of an automatic irrigation system.

“A beautiful, spacious villa with amazing views across the bay”
Reviewed 24 September 2018 for a stay in August 2018

people found this review helpful

We had such an amazing holiday. Villa Ruza is an amazing property, comfortable, spacious, well equipped and with such beautiful views across the bay (especially at sunset!). The whole bay is stunning and best seen by boat. We loved exploring and particularly loved Rose on the Lustica peninsula, Perast and the trip up to Mt Lovcen with amazing views across the Albanian mountains. Its some drive though! Porto Montenegro, is just a 20 minute walk away, with some great restaurants too.

Lily and James (the owners) and their team, made everything so easy and made us feel so welcome too. We used Bojan too for all our transfers and our car hire and we would highly recommend. All in all, Villa Ruza was such a beautiful place to stay and we would highly recommend it. As for Montenegro, it's so beautiful!
