Guesthouse Demush is a beautiful old house surrounded by many flowers — hostess Edmira just loves flowers. She also owns a mini market operating from a container next to the road (sells useful things like potato chips, soap and drinks), and her husband, Demush, does horse guiding. They are open all year. Camping is also […]
Our pick for nicest guesthouse in Valbona Center. Big, old and authentic, but with new bathrooms and beds. The restaurant is small and basic, but set back next to a little stream. Very pretty. Host Kelmend is also very active in the community, working to give locals a voice with government.

The house is solar powered (!), and has one room with four single beds. Brahami also offers a taxi service to […]
