Ljuta Village

Posted on: January 8th, 2013 by Nigel Brown No Comments

Ljuta is a small village situated on the coast road between the towns of Kotor and Perast.

The village is in a sunny location, being located at the north eastern point of the bay of Kotor. The Stari Mlini restaurant is less than a one minute walk away, and there is a village shop about 3 minutes away from the villa. At the far end of the village is a fresh fish delicatessen called 'Cogi'. This underwent an extensive refurbishment in 2014, and what was previously a fresh fish wholesaler, is now more like a food hall in Harrods selling fresh fish, wines and other delicatessen items.

The seafront is predominantly stony with many ‘puntas’ (stone built jetties) which people swim from.

The Ljuta river (about 300 metres from the villa) is remarkably short – just a few hundred metres long – it emerges from the bottom of the mountains and flows into the bay. It varies from a gentle stream to a raging torrent, but keeps the L:juta end of the bay very clean and reduces the salinity of the sea.

Kotor is easily accessible being just 6 klms away by car, and there is a regular bus service from the village. Kotor has dozens of hotels, restaurants and bars, as well as a casino and several night clubs. There is an extensive deep water harbour front where luxury yachts moor in the summer.
