Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in Albania your home away from home

Sharing the lovely Adriatic coast with the better known holiday destination of Greece, Albania offers a host of beautiful places to visit. Choose a holiday rental on Albania’s Adriatic coast for a beach holiday, or head to the mountains for outdoor activities in stunning unspoilt scenery. This ancient area has many historic treasures. Visit some of the museums in the capital, Tirana, or discover history for yourself at one of Albania’s archaeological sites. Albania’s currency is the Lek and the official language is Albanian.

Things to Do in Albania

There is a wide variety of things to do from any of the well-located holiday rentals in Albania. The coastal wetlands of Karavastaja are the breeding ground for pelicans, spoonbills, herons and spotted eagles - a top sight for birdwatching. Hiking in the magnificent mountains such as the Tomorri Massif is excellent. Skiing and mountain biking can be organized in this area, or in the Albanian Alps in the north. Cycling holidays can also be enjoyed amidst glorious Albanian scenery, sampling the local cuisine along the way. Albania has beautiful beaches for sunbathing and watersports on the lakes and the Adriatic coast, but they can be crowded in the high season. For more historic things to do, view the collections of religious art in Tirana and Berati and see the 16th century icons by artist Onufri.

Places to Visit in Albania

Appollonia is an interesting place to visit for those who are interested in archaeological sights. It has the remains of an ancient abandoned city. Other historic remains can be seen at Berati with its imposing hilltop castle, and at Durresi where there is a Roman amphitheatre. Lake Komani is a beautiful place to visit, with its pygmy cormorants and other wildlife. Take the ferry from your Albania holiday rental and enjoy the boat trip. For a more adventurous ride, the Osumi River offers spectacular canyons and white-water rafting trips. Explore Tirana’s communist past; see the house where Enver Hoxha lived and the Pyramid which is his mausoleum. Voskopoja was once the largest city in the Balkans and is full of churches and basilicas with wonderful frescoes.

Weather in Albania

Albania enjoys a Mediterranean climate. The coastal plains have hot dry summers and winters are mild but wet. The high mountains have a much cooler, wetter climate with plenty of winter snow. In the capital, Tirana, in the centre of the country, temperatures range from 17-31°C (63-88°F) in July and 2-21°C (36-54°F) in the winter.

Travel to Albania

Albania’s main airport is the Tirana International (TIA) Airport which is 25km (16 miles) outside the capital. There is a regular bus service from the airport to Tirana and taxis are also available. British Airways and the national airline, Albanian Airlines, have regular flights from London Gatwick to Tirana, Albania. The flight takes 3 hours.

Excellent accommodation, location too. Very friendly people everywhere, a lot to be seen and enjoyed. The only slight problem sometimes with the internet connection at the apartment. We would highly recommend the place!
