Its completely a stone house made in 1890 , the last restoration was made in 2013 . It have a beautiful mountain view, from early morning until to evening the tranquility prevails everything. Th main position of the house is East - South so it is sunny all the day. All are welcome .
“This stone cabin is the perfect place for a quiet, peaceful, relaxing break! It's a beautiful cabin in itself, with a stunning balcony to have a meal, cup or tea, or enjoy a good book. Nearby there are some trails to explore the village and other villages, as well as Korce, are nearby for more exploration. Your own vehicle is definitely needed, and as there is no market in Dardhe, make sure to stop in Korce beforehand. Kristi's parents are absolutely lovely hosts and Kristi and/or his sister are available for any questions via message. I highly recommend this place and look forward to returning!”
The house is located in a central location of Korca. The neighborhood is quite and with a lot of locals. Nearby you will find everything. Everything is in walkable distance. 4 min walk to the cathedral. The decor of the house is on purpose old and has a lot of paintings and old furniture and new to give the vintage look.
“We have never managed to stay at Vasian's place due to the Covid 19 outbreak and the imposed restrictions to travel but I just wanted to share how wonderful Vasian was in communicating and understanding our situation. I do hope I manage to visit Korce and stay in his place in future!”

“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.”
