“Aleksa and his family are great hosts. They gave us a lot of interesting and helpfull information of the region, food, etc. The house was more than great. We had a perfect stay. It is very spacious, clean and one can find all you need for even a longer stay. The architecture of the building is noteworthy to mention. It has several (half) stories/levels that all have their own specific style. In the upper level it feels like if one is in a colonial Asian apartment; one of the 2 bathrooms has a tropical-like shower and the kitchen has everything to prepair your meals. We also used their outside grill several times. In the evening one has a pretty view over Sopot. When choosing to eat out, there are 2 restaurants nearby. “Radovanje” is about 10-15 minutes walk from the house and serves traditional Serbian food and good salads. An Italian style restaurant “Vino & Cucina” is about 20-30 minutes walk. This restaurant just opened their doors. In Sopot one can also find several other pubs for a beer and some small food like a Pljeskavice. Sopot has several small shops where you can get most groceries. However, in Mladenovac (15 min drive by car) there are some larger shops such as Roda. Next to that, there is a daily market and a larger variety of restaurants. Please keep in mind that it sometimes can be hard to park your car in the center of Mladenovac. Next to the great house, Aleksa and his family arranged a beautiful boat tour on the Danube river, so we could have a great view of Belgrade and surrounding villages. They told us about the history of the different parts and buildings, such as the old border tower of the Habsurg Empire. Moreover, they were helpful in explaining the various museums, the fortress and other nice places in Belgrade to visit. We also visited several places around Sopot, such as Smederovo, which has an interesting fortress that was build between 1427 and 1430. Moreover, Smederovo is a nice place to visit. We would definitely recommend to stay at Aleksa’s Villa Kasteljan. It has been great to meet him and his family.”
