Sveti Stefan Holidays
Sveti Stefan is an island resort attached to mainland Montenegro by a small causeway. It lies at the foot of the Lovcen Mountains, on the Budva Riviera.
In the 1960s Sveti Stefan was transformed from a small fishing village into a self-contained hotel island. Great care was taken not to change the aesthetics of the resort and the island's stone buildings with red-tiled roofs still retain their original look and charm.
Why Visit Sveti Stefan?
Your Sveti Stefan holiday is set in a truly unique resort, sitting on a cliff looking out towards the sea. After its conversion to a hotel island in the 60s it was a hugely popular choice for celebrities and royalty. Now even us mere mortals can pay a visit!
A holiday to Sveti Stefan offers a traditional Montenegrin island exterior with an almost secret modern interior and fantastic facilities. The medieval fishing village is surrounded by walls that hint at its 15th century history and filled with winding streets and narrow alleys that lead to picturesque squares and out onto fantastic coastal areas.
