Beautiful family house, where they rent rooms for guests. Winegarden at the back. Perfect location, walking distance to the castle. We had a lovely dinner in the garden, and were lucky enough to get to try some of Lorencos wine aswell. Authentic experience.

A great atmosphere with a most welcoming and multi-talented host. Lorenc makes his own very good wine and raki and has a fine voice. The rooms are clean and airy and the home cooked meals are great. All of this at a very reasonable price.

Lorenc was a great host, chef, and singer. I really enjoyed my stay here. The garden is a nice place to escape the sun in the afternoon and have a few beers and dinner in the evening with the other guests. Complimentary coffee, rakiia and cake was always being offered

Lourenco is a very friendly host, promoting a lovely atmosphere and an unforgeatable stay. I'll definitely be back here to listen him performing la tosca de Puccini :) the red wine is also a great experience!

Very nice owner and his Mother. Nice view, pleasant location, in the bank of the river. They got nice garden. We had tasty raki and coffee as a treat. We spent there only one night and it was worth it.

The house has been in the family for years and years so there is an intimate feel to the place. The owner, Lorenc, is a great host and takes time to get to know you if you're interested in sharing. The location is prime with several great restaurants just a couple minutes walk. There are some great hiking trails just... More

Excellent host, knows how to sing opera, food is really delicious, the atmosphere almost made me cry. We spent the evening together, laughing, singing, dancing. Although we were a group of students, we really enjoyed his company. The city is around 5-10 min walk away, really worth seeing.

Fantastic Albanian-style family-run Guesthouse. The owner and his wife are incredibly warm, helpful and welcoming. Wifi works wonders, rooms are very clean and confortable. Prices will suit those on a tight budget.
