Agroturizëm Gjepali

The story of the Agriturizem Gjepali started, in the broadest sense, 23 years ago, when Fundim Gjepali, then only 14 years old, left his village and immigrated to Italy in search of a better life. He initially started at the bottom of the restaurant “food chain”, but over the years worked his way up to […]

Agroturizëm Huqi

The restaurant of Gezim Huqi could hardly lie in a more idyllic location. Off the main road to Gjiri i Lalzit (Lalzi Bay) and only half an hour from the capital Tirana, it is located right along the shores of a small reservoir, surrounded by terraced hills, and with views all the way to the […]

Agroturizëm Zerja

The region of Dibra, at the border with North Macedonia, is often overlooked by tourists and travellers. While it’s somewhat tucked away in the northwest of the country, far from Albania’s more well-known tourism destinations and still more difficult to access by road, the area has a lot to offer to the adventurous visitor. Rich […]

Bujtina Dini

The guest house of Kol Marku and his family is located about 5 kilometres from Rubik, in the county of Mirdita, perched in a small valley that’s characterized by lush greenery and tranquility. Despite being just a few kilometres off the main highway that connects Tirana with Kosovo, the setting is very rural. Driving along […]

Bujtina Tomadhe

Behind Tirana’s iconic backyard Mount Dajti lies a valley so far removed from the bustling capital, that it’s hard to believe it’s a mere hour-and-a-half drive away. A windy road leads past the mountain, over the Priska pass and towards the village of Shengjergj. Bujtina Tomadhe, run by the couple Albina and Novruz Çuko, is […]

Bujtina Xhebro

Bujtina Xhebro (Rexhin, Gjirokastra County) By the time you arrive at Bujtina Xhebro, a guesthouse nestled into the slope of Mount Kendrevica, you are guaranteed to already have quite an adventure behind you. The remoteness of the place is hard to grasp before arriving there at the end of a long drive that starts from […]

Farma Sotira

If you’re looking to get away from city life as far as possible, Farma Sotira is the place for you. The epitome of remoteness, this farm lies far from urban bustle in the south-eastern county of Kolonja, at 1000m of elevation, close to the Greek border. Anyone travelling from Permet to Korca will inevitably pass […]

Kantina Alpeta

Perched in the rolling hills beneath Mount Tomorr lies the village of Roshnik, home to 120 families, a 30-minute drive north-east of Berat, surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and orchards. Kantina Alpeta is located at the end of the asphalt road through the village and past the mosque. A truly family-run business, Alpeta comprises a […]

Kantina Arbëri

The value of tradition at Kantina Arbëri is apparent in every step the Kaçorri family has taken, from producing small batches of wine for personal use and to sell locally, to becoming one of the most well-known wineries in Albania. Today, their wine has been honoured with many international prizes, and the family, with the […]

Kantina Enol

One finds Kantina Enol just a short 30-minute drive away from Albania’s capital Tirana, not far from the airport, in the village of Preza. The 14th-century Preza Castle overlooks Tirana and the plain framed by the Kruja and Dajti mountains. During battles against the Ottomans in the 15th century, the castle served as a major […]

Kantina Nurellari

The winery of the Nurellari family stands out at first glance in the village of Fushe-Peshtan, a small village home to 1200 people. It is located to the south-east of Berat in a plain, framed by the river Osum to one side and the foothills of mighty Mount Tomorr to the other. The property is […]

Kështjella

The restaurant of Tomorr Ismailaj and his brothers lies right by national road SH72 north of Berat, in the village of Poshnje. It’s located just off the recently renovated, flowery village square centered around a giant plane tree as in many southern Albanian villages. Historically this was a place where villagers would gather to sit […]

Kodra e Kuajve

It’s clear what the main attraction of Kodra e Kuajve (Horses Hill) is from the name. The restaurant and resort is dominated by a large central riding enclosure, around which the hotel, ground-floor restaurant, horse stables and restaurant’s outdoor sitting areas are arranged. The resort’s history began when Gerti Hima, the horse-loving owner of Kodra […]

Mrizi i Zanave

No compilation of Albanian agritourism farms would be complete without mentioning Mrizi i Zanave. The poster child of Albanian agritourism is the brainchild of chef Altin Prenga, who established the restaurant and adjacent farm in the village of Fishta in northern Albania. Altin, together with his brother Anton, emigrated to Italy as a teenager in […]

Nari Lundra

Just a 20-minute drive from Tirana lies the restaurant of Ardian Tufa, better known to his friends and patrons as Nari. Leaving the TEG shopping centre and a row of gated communities behind, the surroundings quickly turn more rural. Shortly you enter the village of Lunder, and Nari’s building with an iconic little tower on […]

Shkreli Resort

Perched into a hillside near the Shtama Pass (Qafshtame) lies Shkreli Resort, a mountain hotel and restaurant resort. The resort is seated on two hectares, located at the border between Kruja and Dibra Counties, in the heart of Qafshtama National Park. A 45-minute car ride from Kruja along windy but incredibly scenic roads brings you […]

Taverna Xhufka

Visiting Taverna Xhufka in rural Korca County feels like a fresh breath of air. A small side road leading to the village of Boboshtica takes you up to the foothills of the Morava mountain range, part of the Fir of Drenova National Park (Parku Kombëtar Bredhi i Drenovës). Especially in the height of summer, when […]
