That ideal, quiet place in the heart of Montenegro is called the Djurdjevina Family Farm Above Moraca Monastery. This private farm stay is ideal for spending several days (or more) surrounded by nature to relax with dear ones or enjoy some local hiking or mountain biking. It is equal parts organic apples and mountain landscapes. And, it is also a perfect home base for exploring the mountain beauty of the north.
This family farm is the property of the Jovanovic Family that has been here for generations and loved their land well. They have gone to great lengths to prepare and cultivate the land here in Djurdjevina Village for their family getaways. So much time and devotion are visible from the handmade wood stove to the handcrafted wood furniture. Now they are opening their family farm to outsiders for the first time. Along with the exclusive use of the family home, guests also have access to grilling equipment, the fruit trees, and vegetable garden. Also, there is opportunity to try the organic apple juice being bottled by a nearby neighbor in the village.
