The eureka moment of Porto Montenegro came when a group of primary investors identified an overwhelming demand for yacht berths around the Adriatic. This led to the transformation of a centuries-old naval shipyard into a state-of-the-art marina to satisfy the shortage, while an entire waterfront residential village was erected around it. Created specifically with the yachting lifestyle in mind, world-class restaurants, serene spas, international boutiques and glamorous apartments were immediately erected throughout the now-famous Marina Village, earning the nickname of the “New Monaco” as an exclusive hideaway among superyacht owners, billionaire visitors and jet-set travelers.
With ongoing resort development, strong private funding and a close partnership with the government, Porto Montenegro is quickly closing in on its reputation as Eastern Europe’s top luxury destination that’s ready to spoil its residents. To date, 263 apartments across six residential buildings have been completed, resulting in an intimate collection of waterfront and promenade homes that includes high-specification studios, 1-4 bedroom apartments, duplexes and penthouse suites ranging in price from €350,000 to €5,000,000. Constructed by ReardonSmith Architects with interior designing from Tino Zervudachi of Milinaric, Henry & Zervudachi, these upmarket properties unite traditional Mediterranean architecture and contemporary lines with soft colors, elegant stone and hardwood. Our Porto Montenegro Real Estate Guide will take you through everything you need to know about the luxury residences.
An Enchanting Location
Surrounded by glistening fjords and emerald mountains in its own untouched corner of the Bay of Kotor, the Adriatic’s largest natural harbor, Porto Montenegro’s dazzling location is second to none. While Montenegro is one of Europe’s youngest countries, the region is steeped in history and offers a wealth of different cultural experiences. The region was initially settled by the Illyrian tribes before becoming part of the Roman Empire in 168 BC. Since then, the French, Ottomans, Austro-Hungarians and Venetians have all left their own distinct architecture, legacies and traditions. Today, the largely undiscovered Montenegro boasts two UNESCO World Heritage sites, the medieval town of Kotor and Durmitor National Park, with an experience that’s taken to new heights by the rich culture and friendly locals.
