The Sweet Life Reborn
Porto Montenegro simply drips old school Hollywood glamour from a period when the likes of Burton, Taylor and Loren were regular visitors. Now a new generation of the chic life is making this gateway to the Adriatic their home.
It was at a private dinner party, so the story goes, that the billionaire Peter Monk was told he should invest in Montenegro.
Within days he was flying in a government helicopter over the bay of Kotor and, just like the original jet set before him, he fell in love with its jaw-dropping beauty.
Porto Montenegro is a phased development comprising a marina for super yachts, luxury apartments, quayside shops, bars and restaurants. Once again it has become a haven for the rich and famous. Pop on the Persols, snap up some vintage Gucci capri pants, warm up the Riva Tritone.
The sweet life is reborn.
