Property descriptionA beautiful stonework property located in the world Heritage UNESCO protected region of Perast – once home to the famous artist, Tripo Kokolija.
One of the principal attractions on the Bay of Kotor is the ancient village of Perast, rich in Venetian-like architecture which includes 16 Baroque palaces, 17 Catholic churches, several important Orthodox structures and a series of nine defensive towers, all set in stone and seemingly untouched by the scourge of modern-day tourism. In Perast, there are many beautiful palaces that belonged to the famous seafarer families. Perast was a joyful stopping spot for the Russian Czars and Venetian Princes who for hundreds of years have frequented Kotor Bay to hone their sailing skills under the watchful gaze of abundant natural beauty, and today enjoys the worldly distinction as an important protected UNESCO World Heritage site.
The Monastery on the island of St. George where the 12th Century Benedictine monastery of St. George is located, and the neighbouring island of Gospa od Skrpjela (Our Lady of the Rock) gives Perast a soaring outline in Kotor Bay that is unmistakable. Two small picturesque islands are located in front of Perast: St. George (Sv. Djordje), which is a natural island and Our Lady of the Rock (Gospa od Škrpjela), a man-made island. In 1452 two sailors from Perast happened by a small rock jutting out of the bay after a long day at sea and discovered a picture of the Virgin Mary perched upon the stone. Around the legendary stone, citizens of Perast began to sink old ships and transported stones to the site for over 200 years, creating the Adriatic Sea's only artificial island where they subsequently built the chapel of Our Lady of the Rocks (Gospa od Skrpjela) in 1630.
This authentic property has the spirit of past times, with stories from the 4th century embedded in its walls. It was the birthplace of famous baroque painter Tripo Kokolja, who was known for capturing the many beauties of Perast, as well as, most notably - Our Lady of the Rocks. This villa has two entrances and can be considered as two separate properties.
From the main entrance - you enter the huge reception room, dining room, and kitchen, where there is also a shower room and toilet. The first floor has 4 bedrooms, 3 of which have stunning views of Perast's 2 charming islets.
Outside is a secluded terrace which offers a view of the Bay.
The second entrance takes you to the secluded garden which is full of fruit trees such as olives, oranges, Fortunella, peach, kiwi, avocados. The separate storage house is very useful for holding extra tools, or a barbecue. Behind the house is a courtyard with a few fruit trees, olive trees and one additional facility (with a total area of cca 18m2). The top floor has a separate entrance and the house can be used as two separate units.
