“Europe’s 50 best beach hotels under £199″

PALAZZO RADOMIRI MONTENEGRO Doubles from £111, B&B Location: Just far enough beyond the fortified port of Kotor to be a haven from the cruise-ship hordes that flood the historic streets, this Baroque beauty bestrides the tranquil waterfront of Boka Kotorska bay, flanked by dramatic mountains. Why you’ll love it: An 18th-century palace converted into a 10-room hotel, this property has a plain stone exterior that gives little hint of the pleasures inside: spacious rooms with bare-brick walls, a bougainvillea-draped terrace that’s perfect for sundowners, and a lovely pool area that melts into the mountains around it. To the front is a neat pier lined with loungers — you’ll find it the perfect spot for gazing at the view or snoozing in the sunshine. Travel’s tip: Ask and the kitchen will produce a packed lunch (£9) to enjoy with those fjord-like views, up in the nearby national park.
