The 300 year old house is located in a village at Lake Skadar, 8 km away from the wellknown village of Rijeka Crnojevica. The last years it got renovated with love and a lot of patience;) The house itself is surrounded by vinyards and meadows.

The house comfortably offers room for 4-5 people. Upon request we can provide you a baby bed. Children up to 7 years are free of charge.
The kitchen and bathroom are downstairs. The entire garden area can be used (hammocks, playground, etc..), As well as the fresh vegetables, tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers, saisonal fruits, etc. from the garden.
The accommodation is suitable for people who would like to meet a country and its traditions off-the-beaten track. The village does not offer shopping facitilites, so please take some provisions with you. We provide you some basics for the first breakfast (coffee, tea, milk, butter, honey, jam, bread, joghurt). The closest grocery stores are located in Podgorica (20 min) or Rijeka crnojevica (15 min). In the fishing villages Karuc (10 min) or Rijeka Crnojevica there are several fish restaurants.
We provide you 2 mountainbikes free of charge (or upon request more which we have to charge), so you can explore the surroundings. If you like to walk, some nice walking trails, eg. to the village of Karuc, start right from the house ( 5km, 1hrs45min). A very special experience is to go out with a local fisherman and bring in the catch of the day. This happens very early in the morning, but is rewarded with an unique experience and a tasty fish breakfast. We are happy to organize this for you. Since we run an adventure holiday business we are happy to advise you on hiking, cycling, moutainbiking, horseback riding, cooking and wine tasting etc holidays - just let us know.
The house itself and terrace is all yours. Next door lives our uncle Luka, he is a quiet fellow and won't disturb your stay, still you should respect his privacy, especially around his house. Upon your arrival we will show you the part of property you can move and use.

Enjoy a real montenegrin village - nothing spectacular, but maybe just the atmosphere you are looking for to relax. Our right next door neighbours (you won't see, but eventually hear) are wine makers, keep sheep/goats/cows and grow vegetables.
Nationalpark Lake Skadar is right at our doorstep - with spectacular views, great nature and rich cultural history (eg in Rijeka Crnojevica). There are some nice village walks starting right from our front door - eg. to a fishermen village (1h15min one way).
The capital Podgorica is just 15 min drive away - there you find restaurants, shopping centers etc ...
The former royal capital Cetinje is also just 20 min drive. Here you can touch the Montenegrin soul and history. There is a nice greenmarket every Thursday morning - opposite of the busstation in a backyard.
Should there be bad weather - the newly opened "Lipska cave" might be nice sight to visit. This limestone cave features some impressive rock formations.
The closest beach you find in Budva - which ist approx. an 50 min drive.
There is no public bus service. Therefore we recommend to hire a car. If you wish a car-free holiday we are happy to organize a taxi transfer to our house. (eg. airport Podgorica-Rvasi € 20). At our house in Rvasi you find two mountainbikes at your disposal (free of charge).
Other Things to Note
Rvasi is wifi-free. We decided so that also we get some time off-line after office hours. We truly enjoy. Next wifi you find in Rijeka Crnojevica, Cetinje or Podgorica.
If you should wish to stay in our house in early spring - until mid April or late autumn from October, please consinder it could get chilly. There is a well operating A/C heating in the middle floor and a romantic wooden stove in the sleeping room, which you stay comfortable...just that you consider it.
You are free to harvest vegetables from our garden. Please consider to take provisions with you before your arrival, since there are no shopping facilities around. (Most probably there will operating be a small village shop starting from next spring (update: November 2015 - we keep you posted.)
