Round off the trip in true James Bond style by hurtling towards Montenegro, the setting of the 2006 Casino Royale film. Although not actually filmed here, you'll still be treated like a film star at the magnificent Aman Sveti Stefan resort, a 32-hectare seaside estate graced with spectacular views, quaint courtyards and ancient cedar and pine forests. The tiny islet was formerly an Adriatic playground for the rich and famous from the 1960s to the 1980s, and the five star experience has only got better with the introduction of a stand-alone Aman Spa. Stay for an extra day and investigate the spa's sea view setting and well-being treatments all in the name of recovery.
