Three Character One-Bedroom Apartments in the UNESCO town of Perast
Located beneath the hill of St. Elijah, overlooking the Verige Strait, the quaint Perasto Apartments sit snugly amongst the pretty cluster of terracotta roofs, stone streets and the stunning Baroque architecture of Perast.
These cosy and comfortable one-bedroom apartments share a shaded terrace or outside seating area as well as lovely views looking out towards the sparkling waters of the Bay of Kotor.
A former city of the Venetian Republic, Perast has been perfectly preserved and boasts some of the finest examples of Baroque architecture on the Adriatic Coast. The Campanile church tower, built by Giuseppe Beati, is the highest on the eastern coast of the Adriatic, while the stone promenade is a charming place to while away a few hours in the sunshine, with the enticing aromas of almond cake - a traditional Perast sweet - scenting the air.
A short distance across the deep blue water of the Bay lays the islet of Our Lady of the Rock. This unique, artificially-built island has a picturesque chapel which is a must visit if only for its oil paintings and golden and silver votive tablets which is accesible via regular boat services.
Located just minutes away from Perast's main square, it makes the ideal base, whether for simply enjoying the historic atmosphere or for exploring the whole, unique Kotor Bay area. You are only a short drive away from the spectacular walled city of Kotor, Porto Montenegro and the beaches of the Lustica Peninsula.
Perast is also home to a number of traditional Montenegrin waterfront resturaunts all within very easy walking distance.

Situated a few kilometres northwest of Kotor, Perast is one of Montenegro’s most picturesque settlements, with pretty winding lanes and countless churches set against a backdrop of rugged cliffs and the forests of Mount Orjen. Grand merchant houses lie along its seafront, an echo of the time when Perast was a prosperous Venetian-era trading town on the western edge of the Ottoman Empire.
An ideal base for exploring the Bay of Kotor and beyond, Perast has been perfectly preserved and boasts some of the finest examples of baroque architecture on the Adriatic Coast. Palaces, churches and old stone mansions line the water’s edge, and the stone promenade is a charming place to while away a few hours in the sunshine, with the enticing aromas of almond cake – a traditional Perast sweet scenting the air.
The town looks out onto the Verige strait – the narrowest part of the Bay of Kotor – and distinctive twin islands, each with a picturesque chapel. The Abbey of St George was first established by the Benedictines as early as the 9th century on a natural island, while the neighbouring Our Lady of the Rock adorns a manmade islet built and enlarged over centuries by depositing stones and scuttled sailing ships around a small crag. The first known church was built there in 1452, and the present Byzantine chapel went up in 1632, with the domed sanctuary added ninety years later.
Quiet and beautiful, Perast is one of the highlights of this stunning region, and a delightful base from which to visit quaint fishing villages alongside the deep blue waters of Kotor Bay and other historic towns nestling among the trees of the surrounding hills.
