Take a walk through Kotor Old Town and it doesn’t take you long to realise that you are somewhere very unique, somewhere very old and somewhere very special. The walled town oozes character, especially at night when the narrow streets are lit with ‘old’ lamps, the wine bars spill out onto the street, and the lights from the surrouding city walls give the town an eerie glow. You’d half expect to see a cavalcade of horsemen galloping through the town, looking for a place to tie up their steeds and settle down to a plate of bread, cheese and a tankard of beer.
If you are visiting Kotor for any length of time, then staying in the old town itself is a real treat, giving you the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in this ‘old world’ experience by day and night. Thankfully there is a fantastic guest house that fits just perfectly with the atmosphere around town. The Palazzo Drusko is set in a 600-years-old stone house that was formerly owned by Montenegrin nobility. It retains many of its original features, with rooms decorated in authentic style, shutters that open out onto the streets below, and traditional music piped through to the room ‘wireless’.
The rooms are all individually decorated, combining wood, stone, antique furniture and paintings with modern touches to add to your comfort. Each comes with a flat-screen satellite TV (looking quite out of place!), a private bathroom fitted with a shower or a bath, wi-fi and access to a shared kitchen in the basement. It’s comfy, clean, oozing with character, welcoming and in a perfect spot in the old town. If you’ve booked the B&B option then breakfast is provided in a local wine house!! When we were there the host for our stay was Daniel – quite possibly the friendliest, most helpful host ever!!
Just steps away from a small square with a handful of restaurants, it’s the perfect place to tie up your horse… if you had one!!!
