Spizza Haven is listed in affiliation with Olivers Travels.
Nestled in a quiet corner of Montenegro in idyllic Tali?i, with fresh, clean air and a local atmosphere, the villa is perfect for those who love to get away from it all. If you're ready to tear yourself away from the comfort and peaceful serenity of the villa, the historic port city of Bar is just a 15-minute drive away, while thriving Budva takes 30 minutes to reach.
The main attraction in Bar is King Nikolas' Palace. The King built this graceful house to create a home for his daughter and son in law and the palace now houses an impressive museum of folk costumes and historical relics. Stari Bar - the Old Town - sits atop a steep hill, encompassing ancient ruins. Over the years, it has been occupied by the Venetians, Hungarians, Serbians and Ottoman Empire, all of whom made their mark.
Over time, some of the ruins have been overrun by nature, while some of the architecture is reminiscent of the Ottoman Empire. The Omerbasica Mosque is the most prominent example of this, rectangular in structure and surrounded by stone walls. Bar is home to one of the world's oldest olive trees, the Stara Maslina. An important symbol in Balkan history, this tree is two millenniums old and marked by a series of square stones that encircle it. One side of the tree is burnt, and the real reason why remains a mystery.
The area around Bar is locally well known for canyoning, particularly and Medjurecje, where you can get into the adventure sport that encompasses abseiling, navigating gorges and rock climbing. Magnificent Lake Skadar, the largest in the Balkans and topped with water lilies, is just a 30-minute drive away. A great location for wildlife spotting and home to many species of bird, it's a perfect place to switch off and reconnect with nature. There are also many fine wineries in this region, where you can take a tour and sample some local Montenegrin wine.
Lively Budva town is a great day trip and extremely popular with travellers to Montenegro. A buzzing hive of activity, Budva has a charming Old Town and an infectious atmosphere. Get pleasantly lost discovering hidden nooks and crannies around the narrow streets and alleyways. There are many boutiques and street stalls to discover here, and several piazzas to enjoy a coffee and people watch. With its imposing stone Venetian walls that once guarded the city from intruders and its cosmopolitan cafes and nightlife, Budva is the beating heart of this stunning Balkan country.
If you're after some days at the beach, there are no fewer than 17 named beaches that stretch along the coastline from Jaz to Buljarica in the area known as Budva Riviera. Some great choices for a beach day include Becici beach, where you can go paragliding, and Kamenow, with its crystal-clear turquoise waters and powdery sand. Mogren Beach is the closest to the Old Town, while Jaz beach got the top spot in Lonely Planet's best beaches in Europe. Stop at a seaside cafe for some fresh seafood and a glass of local wine.
