In Spring/Summer 2010 the company we work for undertook the furnishing of a hotel in Montenegro, on the rapidly developping Adriatic coast of the Balkans. The hotel belongs to the Restis group of companies which mainly deals with shipping and finance, but lately expands into leasure and entertainment.
Aman Sveti Stefan is beautiful restoration project on the coast of Montenegro. The resort incorporates both the historic 15th century island of Sveti Stefan and Villa Miločer, a graceful summer residence built in 1934.
In a country famed for its beauty, the most iconic images associated with Montenegro are of the tiny islet named Sveti Stefan overlooked by Villa Miločer, a graceful stone manse set on a pink sand beach. The former summer residence of Queen Marija Karađorđević, Villa Miločer is phase one of Aman Sveti Stefan, completed in late 2008. Surrounded by more than 800 olive trees, the manse resides on a 32-hectare estate, embraced on three sides by ancient cedar and pine forests. Attached to the coast by a narrow isthmus, the island of Sveti Stefan across the bay was once a fortified fishing village, dating back to the 15th century. Today, the island is undergoing an exciting transition to become the second phase of Aman Sveti Stefan, which will retain the island’s historic air and cluster of sturdy stone buildings with red tiled roofs, cheerful amongst hardy evergreen trees.
