Vila Perast Boutique hotel & bistrot is a seafront villa set in a medieval palace from the XV century, renovated in 2016 and officially re-opened in 2017 with decision of Ministry of Tourism of Montenegro.
Vila Perast was part of Hotel Fjord company.
The product of renovation is an exceptional 4-level house which is strikingly beautiful, absolutely charming and will tickle your fancy equipped with renewable energy system and sustainable furniture.
The hotel has 19 different rooms, most of which have a sea view. The building’s original charm has been preserved and enhanced by the hotel’s sophisticated exterior design, and the Vila has preserved a characteristic in common with other houses in Perast: a broken base. The exterior walls are bonded exclusively with blunt and sharp corners because it is believed that this keeps evil spirits from entering.
The ground floor is comprised of a magnificent entrance opening onto a spacious living area consisting of a contemporary kitchen fully equipped with modern appliances and a dining area spacious enough to fit a large dining table. Vila has a state-of-the-art entertainment system and this floor is also easily transformed into a beautiful, spacious entertainment room dedicated to art where you can find a trendy ambience and enjoy the special night.
In front of the Vila there is a terrace, which has preserved the charm of the time period when it was originally built. It is suitable for a rest with a view of the bay shaded under an amazing Wisteria, which in Montenegro is often called “blue rain” – a grandiose climbing plant whose charm is difficult to resist. In front of this terrace you can enjoy a swim with Vila’s private access to the sea.
