Dear Amanda,

Just wanted to let you know that we enjoyed our stay in your fantastic house in Orahovac very much and that the service from Ana and Milena was great.
We went for a hiking trip in the mountains (our idea was to walk from Orahovac to Perast through the mountains) but we missed a few signs so we finally got lost ;-).
We bumped onto a hunter/shepherd that could show us the way we needed to take... and we phoned Ana who served as translator... what an experience that was! ;-)
We also enjoyed the good food that Fanika served us on one of the nice evenings ;-).
You have very nice neighbors over there.
It was the second time that we visited Montenegro with our family and we all love this country very much so we hope to come back in the future.
Thanks for renting us your great house Amanda.
Kindest Regards,
Jack, Hilde and kids.

Très belle maison

17th August 2015

Nous étions 3 couples - la maison c'est avéré en tous points conformes aux descriptions - et s'est révélé finalement même mieux encore - grâce à une situation géographique de rêve (à 8 km environ de Kotor et 8 de Perast). Nous avons terminé nos vacances monténégrines dans cette maison (après des randonnées dans le Durmitor et Kolasin ) - et aurions finalement préféré d'avoir évité la côte (ou nous avons passe 2 jours et demi) tant était belle la quiétude du village, la plage (de mini-galets) à à peine 50 m de la maison et une eau mer-lac magnifique. Nous avons utilisé 3 des 4 chambres - chacune avec une salle de bain.... barbecue, terrasses sur deux côtés (une à l'ombre d'un palmier) l'autre exposé au soleil.... Nous avions initialement prévu de faire pas mal de randos mais le spot était tellement bon que nous avons passé une grande partie de notre court séjour - de lundi à vendredi - près de la maison.... c'est plus cher que la moyenne mais vaut chaque centime....

One of our best holidays ever

8th August 2015

Our stay in Orahovac was one of our best holidays we have ever had with family and friends. The Villa is perfectly situated on the sea front with local restaurants and shop a minute walk away. The villa is furnished well and provides a lovely home to come back to after a day on the water and near by beach. The large terrace area allows you to spend long lazy lunches and dinners with friends and family looking out over the most amazing scenery. Will go back every year if possible. Orahovac is perfectly situated to see all that Montengro has to offer.

A very practical and beautiful home, overlooking the most spectacular views! Our stay here was one of the most magical and special holidays we have had. Looking forward to next year!

An "must visit" destination - we will be back!
Date de séjour 30 juillet 2014

I couldn’t recommend a holiday in one of the Hollick’s villas more. Amanda is a great host, so friendly & willing to tailor your stay. The villas are great for couples, families & groups. The scenery, food and friendly locals are what make Montenegro memorable for us. We first visited Montenegro with a group of friends (& a toddler) a couple of years ago, it was an amazing trip. We hired a car at Dubrovnik airport & drove for about an hour into Montenegro. The first thing that wowed us was the scenery, the mountains combined with the blue water is absolutely breathtaking. We stayed in Perast which is stunning & on the waterfront, it has a lot of local restaurants and is lovely and quiet, perfect for fun filled holiday! This year, my boyfriend & I chose to go back. It was more of a last minute get away for some R&R – getting out of London and leaving work behind! We decided we didn’t need to hire a car, so flew into Dubrovnik and Amanda Hollick (the owner) arranged for us to be picked up from the airport by a local driver. He drove us to Orahavac in Montenegro, stopping to let us get cash in a nearby town. The house was spotless when we arrived. From there, we could see straight out into the bay, which called for a quick swim before unpacking! There’s a nearby shop for getting bread, juice, wine, fruit, chocolate etc so we promptly stocked up. We spent the mornings reading on the terrace (with a morning swim), we went to local bars/café’s during the day & either walked to nearby restaurants for dinner & on a couple of occasions we got a taxi to Kotor. Kotor is a bustling town with cafés, shops, restaurants, bars & nightclubs. There’s a great restaurant on top of the walls with amazing views out to the bay. The food and wine in Montenegro is really good value, the seafood is amazing. I mostly had prawns, moules, seafood risotto, linguine, etc, although they're pizzas, pastas & steaks. There are some good ice-cream & coffee shops, the locals are very friendly too. One day, we hired a boat and went to Porto Montenegro, it is like St Tropez ! There are super yachts galore, designer shops, a great cocktail bar and a good ice cream parlour. Amanda recommended an amazing fish & wine shop should we want to eat in, it’s like Fortnum and Mason on the coast! You can get fresh seafood here and take it back to the house to cook on the BBQ. At the end of our stay, Amanda arranged for us to be driven into Dubrovnik where we stayed for our last night.

The house is in a perfect location, very near to the beach and on a small quiet side road. The house is very well maintained, with a well equipped kitchen, comfortable bedrooms and large terrace with table and chairs which allows for lovely lazy evenings eating and taking in the view.. The views from the bedrooms and terrace are spectacular and give an extensive view of the bay and hillsides. The property was very clean and clearly well cared for, the arrangements for the house were clear and helpful and the housekeeper who showed us round was also cheerful and friendly. The beach is small but the water is beautifully clear and swimming was delightful. the beach is very popular at weekends, but during the week, it was reasonably spacious and quiet.
The villa is in a good location, near enough to easily get to busy kotor but also offering a peaceful location with easy access to other sites to visit

I would recommend this villa to anyone who wants to see Kotor bay - it is in a lovely part of the bay and the scenery is truly spectacular. We were a group of varying ages and everyone the holiday and staying in the villa.

Excellent Holiday

Dear Amanda, dobr Dan))))))))
Hello!!
Thank you for excellent holiday!!
We enjoyed the villa very much. The weather, sun,water-everything gratified us every day!!

Dear Amanda,

We have good holidays in your beautiful villa, even if the weather was bad. Fanika and Ivan help us particularly the first days.

We found that your villa was beautifully done, with a nice terrace and a view incredible.

However a dishwasher will be welcome. We have also a little problem with the shutter, it was very hard to open.

My English is too bad so I speak now in French, nous avons beaucoup apprécié votre maison, son emplacement est idéal et nous la recommenderons à nos amis français. Le Monténégro est un pays magnifique, même sous la pluie et les monténégrins sont des gens charmants et accueillants.

Kind regards

We spent a week in August at Villa Hollick with our two young children. We thought the house was beautifully done, and really well thought out in terms of amenities -- air conditioning in the rooms, a barbecue, nice terrace furniture.

The windows and 180 views of the bay are lovely, and the beach across the street is the best we found in the whole bay, rarely overly crowded and a nice, family atmosphere. Being able to wake up in the morning and take a dip before breakfast sealed the experience for us.

We also thought the area of Orahovac was a great place to stay, probably one of the nicest corners in Montenegro, away from the summer crowds and madness, yet right near the beautiful town of Perast (which we loved) and not far from quaint Kotor.

We'll definitely be back! Thank you Amanda for the use of your lovely home.

"Great place for 3-4 families or a group of friends"
Review Rating : 5/5
Aug 21, 2010

"In the splendid surroundings of little and quiet Orahovac hamlet, we found the villa being more attractively in reality then in pictures.
The house is equipped with all you may need, elegant and well decorated. Clean as well. All information needed where provideded in many languages. From the living room terrace we could watch over our children bathing in the warm waters of Kotor Bay. The beach was almost empty on all times (last week of august). All in all a place designed for relaxation and late night talking around a cold beer or a bottle of wine.

Those looking for close clubs and dancing rings must look elsewhere, or go to Kotor.
We found in the Grota restaurant a tasty cuisine and a skilled personal.
You need car for a proper shopping, because in the hamlet you find only basic food - ex.: you can't find fresh meet, or fish.
Short travelings (Perast, Kotor) can be done with the air conditioned local bus (can arrive earlier then on schedule).

In the end, I would recommend the property to everyone who's not seeking an agitated holiday.

Review Title : 998279 - "Exellent holiday"

"This house is superb very spacious and furnished to a high standard and upon arrival everything was very clean and tidy. The views from the two front bedrooms and patio are amongst the best you could find anywhere. The village of Orahovac was quiet with hardly any traffic and the village shops had most of the everyday essentials. The neighbours were very friendly and helpful. There are many good restaurants close by some which are mentioned in the Villa book and the village hotel also had a good restaurant. This is a great base and if you have a car there are so many places close by with Kotor only 10 to 15 minutes away. Kotor is a fantastic place with loads of character many bars and restaurants and a food market everyday.The bus service is also very regular and reliable

This is our second time in Montenegro the first time we stayed in Amanda Hollicks other property in Perast and would have no hesitation in recommending either properties with the villa in Orahovac being the one for larger parties.
 

Dear Amanda!

We have returned home, in Ukraine. Many thanks, we are very good rest. Your villa is well met all necessary canon of recreation.
We were in Kotor, swam into the sea on a boat, went to the monument Njegos. No time to visit Skadar Lake and the river Tara. We think that will leave it to another holiday. I met your son Nick, a true Englishman.

Very pleased as preparing fish and other dishes Fanika, and delicious and not expensive. Ana also helped us to order the car, give her greetings to us.

We told his friends on vacation, they want to come too, but they have such large companies, and if less people, the rest will be expensive.
And everything else - very good, once again thank you! See!

The house was very beautiful. The garage directly at the house was very practical for our motorcycles. Each of us 4 bikers had a double room with a own bathroom. 2 month before we didn't know how many people are going with us on tour. So it was very practically for us to rent a house with max. 10 sleep-places. At the end we where only 4. We had felt very comfortable in the house. It has been missing to nothing.

regards
