Jewel of the Adriatic – Sveti Stefan

The fortified city in the fifteenth century, pirates retreat to the Adriatic Sea, a village used as anti-Ottoman stronghold – the island of St. Stephen’s been through a lot. It is one of the most beautiful micro-resorts from Montenegro.

At first glance, Villa Milocer has something in the air that I met and at Mangiacane, in Tuscany. The two buildings are separated by a considerable distance and a few hundred years as the date of construction, but the architectural style and landscape around them together, at least that feeling.

Building on the island of Sveti Stefan was completed in 1936 and was designed to be used as a holiday destination by Queen Mary Karadodevic, on the outskirts of a village in the fifteenth century. Did not get to enjoy it too much because the mid-war agitation led to a change of ownership in 1941.

Between 60′s and 80′s, the portion of land connected to the shore by a thin isthmus switched from royal figures from stars of cinema. Among others, then Yugoslavia have invited Elizabeth Taylor, Kirk Douglas and Carlo Ponti, personalities coming to enjoy the pristine waters of the Adriatic, large gardens and extremely beautiful landscapes of western Montenegro.

Division of the Federal Republic led to a period of distress for the former royal retreat until the entire island became Aman Resorts portfolio. After a considerable investment and several years in reconstruction, Sveti Stefan was transformed into a micro five-star resort.

In total, the island includes 58 rooms housed the old village houses plus eight suites inside the Villa Milocer, each more than 120 square meters. Add new glow to old Aman villas across the island Milocer introducing a large 32-hectare resort. Sveti Stefan cover all travel needs, from relaxation to restaurants and places where you can eat traditional dishes. In the case of boredom, Montenegro provides near snowy mountains, monasteries hidden among hills and historic towns of Budva, Cetinje, and Podgorica.
