Wood and stone elements combined, traditional elements, fireplace stove, all of these make a very pleasant atmosphere.

The chalet is heated by the aforementioned stove (burning wood, coal), and because of an excellent insulation and wooden interior, heating and maintaining the temperature of the whole space is quick and easy.

Northern Montenegro region

It’s very difficult not to be delighted with beautiful wild nature that is the main characteristic of this region.

Zabljak (1456 m), the central town of this area, is connected with other parts and regions of Montenegro via three main roads. Restaurants with national cuisine, hotels, market place, supermarkets, bars and pubs, internet cafe are all available in this small tourist centre.

It is not accidental for Zabljak to present high potential for development of tourism. The advantage of two tourist seasons (Winter and Summer)and potential health tourism, ensure Zabljak and the region to be interesting tourist destination throughout all year.

National park Durmitor that spreads over this area ensures the protection of this amazing nature, its beautiful woods, lakes and rivers. The canyon of TARA river is the deepest in Europe and after Colorado canyon second deepest in the world (up to 1300 m deep, and up to 80 km long ). This is one of the most well known rafting destinations.

The amount and characteristics of these natural potentials, ensured for Durmitor region and TARA river protection of UNESCO, since 1980.

Therefore, this region is not only tourist oriented but also oriented towards the production and preservation of all ecological. Montenegro, declared as ecological via Declaration of the Ecological State Montenegro, finds its centre as such, in this region.

Zabljak Town

If you like hiking or cycling, Summer is a perfect time of year. There are many lakes, springs and caves to see and many peaks to climb at. At the winter time, though the chalet is at the walking distance from the best ski tracks and lifts in the area, skiing, boarding and having fun on snow is something that you will enjoy the most.

Ski equipment and ski instructors can be very easily found.

SKI INSTRUCTOR Rade at: , will make this sport more enjoyable, but also find suitable ski equipment for you - if you want to organize your things on time.


Bobotov Kuk (at 2523 metres above the sea) is the highest point of Durmitor mountain. Thanks to marked ways and local guides, this and 23 other peaks above 2000 metres are reachable for mountaineers and adventurers.

But if you are a bit lazy you can achieve Savin Kuk (2132 metres) using cable chair lift, where beside the amazing view, you can drink water from a spring Savina voda, located very close to the highest point of this peak.

18 natural lakes, caves (the Ice Cave for example, with amazing ice sculptures), and of coarse canyons of rivers Tara and Sushica are really worth visiting.

In visiting this place you will for sure feel the real peace, tradition connected with modern life, an astounding nature, nice highlanders, and you will let the unpleasant thoughts be bygone

"such a charming place !!"

We had a very nice stay in Tanja 's house. She had given so many informations that we have found very easily the place. The house was very nice, pleasant to live : good beds, big couch, we spend pleasant time in the terrase, looking sunrise ou sunset... it was fun to have cows and hens walking out around the house.
Tanya is helpfull, always doing her best, as her brother .

Dear guests,

Thank you for your review. It was very nice of you to choose and stay at our property and you are welcome to visit us any time again.

The only thing that I have to comment in your review, so that other future guests wouldn't have a negative image of us, is the rafting issue. As you know, you had the opportunity and suggestion from me to go on the rafting point and organize it yourselves (much cheaper because it does not include transfer nor lunch) but instead you chose the agency that works with us. For you and any other traveler who would like to do rafting in this area, information that the price of transport to and from the rafting point, rafting, fee to the National Park and lunch all together this year cost 45 euros per person, payable on the rafting point, not at our place. This price of course varies depending on services and length of rafting in the agency that organises it. Surely this can be easily checked with any agency that offers this kind of activity in Zabljak. This does not include any kind of commission, otherwise it would cost 55 euros which was not in your case.

It would have been nice and we wouldn't mind if you complained on the spot during your stay so we would have explained whatever questions you had. On the other hand this is definitely a useful review because in this way I explained better to anyone who wants to do rafting here how it can be done.

Kind regards
Tanja Sarovic

"Great location and nice hosts, definitely would go there again"

We really enjoyed our stay at the apartment. I was afraid that the hosts wouldnt rent out for one night only, but it was not a problem at all, no minimum stay required (at least at this time of the year, dont know if it will be the same during high season). I sent Tanja a request, and the reply came prompt. Booking was not complicated at all, and reliable; though you cannot book via internet booking but have to contact the host directly. We even could extend our stay for one day. The welcoming was very warm, and we were provided with milk, eggs, and cream - a perfect breakfast for the next day. The place is in a great location, you literally live on a farm, surrounded by the fantastic view of mountainous Montenegro. We had the one bedroom apartment, which served us well. Basic, but all you need is available at the place. There is a fireplace in the apartment, which we used during the evenings - which was just lovely, of course. The family was very nice and welcoming, and also gave advice on activities in the area, and we could approach them anytime. I definitely recommend this place, and also would go there again, actually we pity that we didn't stay longer. The only thing I didn't like was the mattress of the bed, or better: sofa bed, but I have to admit I am picky in this regard.
