Tradita is located right in the so-called centre of Valbona. It has 5 nice family cabins and a restaurant which is justly popular with locals. Open from April to September. The grandfather of the family, Sherif, is the local herbalist. Although he guards his secrets (so isn’t likely to chat to you about plants) he does sell an incredible tonic for colitis that could (I swear) make the man a millionaire. In down-season, this is the best place to “hang with locals” – at least the men – playing endless games of dominoes or chess. In summer the restaurant also has really nice outdoor seating.
