“My boyfriend and I had a wonderful and very memorable 6 days at Shaban's. The house is located in a small village by the lake. In the village there are a couple of small grocery stores, a restaurant and a few cafes at walking distance and the lake of course is only a few minutes walk. The village is not touristy at all, you'll be staying in a community of farmers and local shop keepers so the feeling of "original Albanian lifestyle" is definitively there. The real plus of staying at Shaban's is that he will happily drive you around if you fancy doing some sightseeing in nearby villages and across the border to Macedonia. This was great for us as we did not have a car. So you could have the best of both worlds - staying in a quiet non-touristy village but still be able to do day trips and sightseeing. Also getting to the village from Tirana was very easy, buses leave from Tirana to Pogradec every hour and you can ask the driver to drop you at the village itself (Udenisht) instead of going all the way to Pogradec. During your stay if you don't speak Albanian (we didn't) you can communicate through hand gestures and charades or message Elis (Shaban's son who speaks English) and he will speak to Shaban for you, for instance to arrange tours for the next day. We also tried google translate but that didn't always work. So this is a great place to stay, especially if you are looking for an authentic quiet retreat with the possibility to do some sightseeing even if you don't have a car.”
Private Room ( double bedroom), amazing lake view, in the center of touristic village Lin. It represents a great chance for those guests who want to live in a typical albanian house.
“After a 3 weeks trip in the Balkans, me and my boyfriend decided to end our trip in the small, beautiful village of Lin, Albania. Located just next to Lake Ohrid, in a traditional house, the room was simple, but clean and comfortable. The best thing about this accommodation is Almarina's family. Her parents, husband, brother, niece, neighbors and friends. Everybody is extremely welcoming, taking care of us as if we were part of the family, serving us traditional Albanian food and drinks. Everything was perfect, although not everybody in the family spoke English. We've learned essential Albanian, had lots of fun and we are looking forward to come back. This is truly what Airbnb should be about, great local experiences with beautiful people! Faleminderit! :)”
