What makes camping at Camp Full Monte so different? Well, to start with it is an eco-friendly campsite. It is situated on beautiful land, not connected to mains power or water.

A solar water heating system provides a virtually limitless supply of free hot water so there's always plenty to shower off the sun cream or wash the dishes. Other modern ecologically friendly facilities include composting toilets, waterless urinals, and an ingenious irrigation system that ensures all the waste water from the site is re-used to water the grounds. The toilet block has been described on tripadvisor.com as 'almost as good as a 5 star hotel' and 'the best loos ever', a very important factor in camping! A wild camping experience without the normal discomforts and inconveniences.

Food, and more specifically the eating of it, is an important part of life in Montenegro. This is certainly the case at Camp Full Monte. For those that want to cook for themselves the facilities include everything you need to prepare meals including a barbeque, gas hob and oven, and fridge.

However, why not pamper yourselves and let your English hosts, Steve and Denise, cook their "dish of the day" for you! This is home cooked food at its best with ingredients fresh from their organic garden or locally sourced. You can even go and pick your own vegetables. The menu will depend upon the season and is cooked in a variety of local and international styles. They cater for vegetarians and vegans.

The evening meal facilitates a community atmosphere with guests gathering round one large dining table. Conversation, wine, beer and the local grappa can all flow through to the early hours. When it is safe to light one, evenings will often end around the campfire. Cost €9 and you can add from a selection of beer, wine and local grappa. Breakfast can also be provided for €5.

There is plenty of opportunity to socialise with other guests at other times of the day too and there is an extensive collection of unusual ball & board games. Alternatively, choose a book from their library and relax in a hammock.

Camp Full Monte hire tents that come equipped with everything you need for a good nights sleep. Mattresses are made up for you with pillows, sheets and duvets & towels are provided.

The Snug sleeps 1-2 at €20 per person per night and The Lodge sleeps 2-4 at €25 per person per night with a 3 night minimum stay. For maximum comfort select The Mansion (a large tent that sleeps 4-6) with prices starting from €280 per person for 7 nights and €550 for 14 nights. There is a 7 night minimum stay. If you have your own tent the price is €12 per person.

As a complete change, maybe you would like to volunteer your energy and skills to help Steve and Denise develop their eco project. They run working holidays throughout the year, where they provide a tent pitch and keep you fed and watered in return for your help on specific projects.

Whatever your reason for visiting, Camp Full Monte is an ideal place to be natural in nature and enjoy a holiday that literally won't cost the earth. Transfers from the airport can be arranged for €35 each way.
