  1. De locatie, de gastvrijheid en het eten waren zo goed, dat het moeilijk was om te vertrekken.

    Oorspronkelijk hadden we twee overnachtingen in Durmitor gepland. De locatie, de gastvrijheid en het eten van Bella & Zoran waren echter zo goed, dat het moeilijk was om te vertrekken. We zijn uiteindelijk vier nachten gebleven. Wij, evenals onze twee zonen van 7 en 8 jaar, hebben een zeer mooie tijd in Nadgora gehad. Dank je wel aan Meanderbug om ons deze mooie plaats aan te raden en om ons thuis te laten voelen in Montenegro.

    Initially we planned two nights in Durmitor. The place, the hospitality and food of Bella & Zoran were so great, that we couldn’t leave. Finally we spend four nights. We, including our 2 boys of 7 and 8 years, had a very good time in Nadgora. Thank you Meanderbug for introducing us this wonderful place and made us feel home in Montenegro.

  2. The place, the hosts, the farm and what's around are wonderful.

    Warmly recommended! We stayed four nights at the farm of Zoran and Bella( we initially reserved prudently a single night, but after a quick look at the magnificent farm and a few drinks with the joyful Zoran, we decided to stay more- and maybe not enough) .
    The location is excellent, 10-15 minutes from Zabliac which is enough to make you feel the Montenegrin countryside, and close enough to get quickly to the city and to the park. Bella is a great cook, and as other farms we had been everything that is served come from her garden( and I mean everything).
    I have a particularly good memory of the dinner, the dishes were endless( home made cheese and bread, vegetable stew, fishes, local cakes, a lot of sort of jam and honey) and Zoran had 6-7 different sort of home made drinks which are served at will almost for free.

    In conclusion, the place is great, the hosts are very sympathetic, the farm and what’s around are wonderful.

  3. I wish we'd had longer here.

    We loved our stay at Zoran’s farm. Zoran was warm and welcoming and went out of his way to make us feel at home. The food was hearty and delicious and there was lots of choice for us pescatarians – fried trout, potato stew, cheese pie, vegetable soups… The room in the cabin was cosy (and warm, with the addition of an electric heater) and the location was wonderful – outside a village on the edge of a forest, surrounded by mountains. There are hikes to do right from Zoran’s place but we ended up hiking to Ledena Pecena (about 6 hours return and a steep scramble near the end) – start at the parking lot to Black Lake. All in all, a wonderful stay! I wish we’d had longer here.
