In a country famed for its beauty, the most iconic images associated with Montenegro are of the tiny islet named Sveti Stefan. Attached to the coast by a narrow isthmus, the island lies across the bay from Villa Miločer and the resort’s stand-alone Aman Spa, and together these historic sites comprise Aman Sveti Stefan.
Once a fortified village dating back to the 15th century, the island of Sveti Stefan is a uniquely atmospheric setting of cobbled lanes, quaint courtyards and breathtaking sea views. The stately stone manse known as Villa Miločer – once the summer residence of Queen Marija Karađorđević – lies on a 32-hectare seaside estate graced with more than 800 olive trees and embraced on three sides by ancient cedar and pine forests.
Montenegro could well be called the hidden gem of the Mediterranean. It has endured a tempestuous past, but today enjoys peace and burgeoning prosperity. Montenegro lies on the coast of the Adriatic Sea in Southeastern Europe between Croatia to the west, Bosnia and Herzegovina to the northwest, Serbia to the northeast and Albania to the southeast. It is a land of rugged snow-capped mountains, ancient forests and pristine beaches lapped by emerald green seas, where ancient monasteries cling to rocky cliffs and imposing stone churches speak of centuries past. Its capital and largest city is Podgorica, while Cetinje is designated as the old royal capital and the former seat of the throne.
Three main airports act as gateways to Aman Sveti Stefan: in Montenegro, Tivat Airport is 34 kilometres and a 30-minute drive from the resort, while Podgorica Airport (also known locally as Golubovci Airport) is 54 kilometres and just over an hour’s drive away. Dubrovnik Airport in Čilipi, Croatia is approximately a 2½-hour drive away. Travel times may vary from season to season. Airport transfers are complimentary to and from Tivat and the resort can arrange transfers from Podgorica and Dubrovnik Airports.
