Depending on the finalization of the SeaSpace you might be accomodated there or in another house near the dive location.
The Kotor Bay Villa
The Kotor Bay Villa provides probably the best view of the bay of Kotor you can find in Montenegro.
The house has two floors and an attic. The small terraces on the first and second floor are perfect for workouts, yoga and breathing technique sessions while the backyard provides a space for BBQ, chilling in the hammock and camp fire guitar sessions in the late evening.

The Mill house is a spacious 3 bedroom restored stone house situated in a peaceful rural village, surrounded by nature and green hills, only a 10 minutes drive to fine beaches with a variety of restaurants & shops.

The spacious outdoor terraces is where we will do breathing and stretching exercises in the sun before heading to the ocean for our dives. Whoever wants to can also join the morning and evening workout sessions.
