Magical Mediterranean Apartment

Unforgettable vacation in the former house of one of the oldest Yugoslav actresses of the 20th century – Ita Rina

No matter how many times you visit the Balkan side of the Adriatic coast, you will never get enough of it. It is magnificent with its world-class beaches, multi-faceted architecture, and delicious food.

Budva in Montenegro is the perfect place for anyone wishing to explore Montenegro, Southern Croatian coastline, Herzegovina or Albania. Mountains, lakes and other natural beauties are just within hours of reach. Budva itself, a small resort town on the Adriatic coast, has beautiful sandy beaches and a splendid nightlife. It is one of few places that we always return to.

For all of the above reasons, Budva gets crowded in Summer. But we have our perfect getaway – magical Mediterranean apartment, Villa Janina. The apartment is located on a slope just above the city center. Thus, even if you don’t like spending your days on nearby beaches, don’t fear. Villa Janina has a tranquil garden and a relaxing terrace. The apartment is ideal for someone who wants to be in a city center and yet likes to seek refuge on hot Mediterranean days in a private oasis.


The apartment has two double rooms, bathroom and a kitchenette. It is surrounded by a large terrace that has a beautiful mountain view and a pleasing side sea-view. Steps lead down to a typical Mediterranean garden with old olive trees, palms and other local flora.

Having two  rooms, Villa Janina accommodates up to four persons. It provides a much needed rest, relaxation and comfort that will fully soak visitors in during their stay. Each room has a unique design.

Practical Information

When is the best time to go there? The season lasts 4 months, from early May to late September.

If you are there in late August or in September, you will have a chance to observe how delicious organic grapes ripen slowly above a terrace – you can pick them by hand and enjoy their fresh taste.

How to get there? The quickest way to get to Budva is to fly to one of the nearby airports: Tivat, Montenegro (20km away), Podgorica, Montenegro (65km away), or Dubrovnik, Croatia (71km away). Then you can take a taxi – recommended if you are coming in July or August, as you will not stress in holiday traffic – or rent a car – recommended for anyone arriving in May or September.
