We used to spend our summers in this beach house. It is surrounded by powerful nature and feel good atmosphere.
I love travelling and enjoy meeting local people and learn about their culture.

A romantic an very nice couple!! :)) Definitely I advise all airbnb hosts to welcome and host them!!
I went here with 3 friends during May-June 2013. We had a recommendation from an Albania friend which told us the best time to visit is Spring and Autumn and he was right, the weather was great equally as nice as in July-August. The other advantage was less traffic as during that period there are less tourists in the area.
One of my friends hired a car which was very handy, we visited both Durres and Tirana.
The villa was perfect as we had privacy and relaxed as much as we wanted it is located in the middle of a villa complex and has everything you need. We bought food from a little shop nearby and ate outside/al fresco in the veranda, it was lovely. We spend a lot of time in the veranda playing games in the fresh air. Just beware of mosquitos you need to buy some repellent cream or spry.
During the day we enjoyed the sun, the sea and the nice little local bars on the beach. At around midday we would go back to the villa for lunch. Every day we had something new. Fresh fish, meat, vegetables we had a little nap/siesta and back on the beach around 4-5pm until sunset, beautiful scenery to take pictures.
Most nights we would go out partying. Near the house a lot of the resorts organize summer events with singers and DJs which is great if you like that type of stuff. We also went to a few restaurants/pizzeria nearby which are affordable and good quality food.
Briseida’s family was just a phone call away from everything we needed. Their keenness to help and availability was impressing. We know now why Albanians are famous for their hospitality, thank you!
We thought it was reasonably priced and as a result I highly recommend this place.
My Dad and I stayed for two weeks at this wonderful villa that is tucked amongst beautiful pines on a lovely quiet residential resort which is literally a stones throw from a gorgeous beach and with a small walk some wonderful pools.
The villa has two good sized bedrooms, bathroom with all facilities, open plan kitchen/dining and living area and a fantastic patio and porch to spend wonderful evenings outside soaking up the beautiful sounds and smells of the pines.
The villa is close to the wonderful and historical city of Durres and with a good road network not far away the villa is ideally situated to explore the many fascinating and exciting places in one of the most beautiful countries we have both had the pleasure to visit!
With a warm welcome upon arriving in Albania and a guided tour of the local amenities and markets we were fast on our way to experiencing first hand the kindness and culture of the Albanian people. With our own self catering facilities and tour of the markets we were able to buy locally grown fruit and vegetables which were exceptionally great value for money and above all tasty. Eating out was also a great pleasure with plenty of quality restaurants offering wonderfully cooked meats and fresh fish!
It was truly one of our greatest holidays from such a warm welcome from our hospitable host, our beautiful sanctuary of the villa and the opportunity to visit such a beautiful country, it really should be on everyone's list of places to go!!!
