After years of planning, dreaming, and a lot of hard work, Marko has built something magical. The Prevalis Nature Cottage near Lake Skadar sits at the peak of the Djurisic family vineyards and micro-winery. Views from the open floor cottage bring guests into nature 24/7. Whether in the bedroom, the living area, the kitchenette, or the terrace, the mountainscape will offer the chance for travelers to be still and take it all in.
Marko built this cottage using a zip line trolley to transfer all building materials up the hill. This was part of his commitment to build a secluded place that provided privacy for guests and respect the natural environment. While there is parking below, the cottage is accessible only by a walking path. Everything was carefully selected and crafted from locally sourced materials to handmade furniture.
While Zabes Selo offers a great place to launch adventures around Skadar and the whole of Montenegro, guests may want to plan a day to just soak in all the surrounding goodness. Marko and his family will do everything possible to make your holiday one you will remember for years to come. They are eager to help guests learn about the history and culture through the eyes of a local family. There is so much to do with this as a launch point including kayaking, hiking, boat trips, bicycling, and cultural activities. During your stay, you can explore a number of local villages, visit nearby Virpazar, and take in the beautiful landscapes and wildlife including the unique wetlands of Skadar Lake. The area is perfect for catching sunrises, drinking in sunsets, and bird watching.
Besides beautiful views, you will also be able to taste the regional goodness of organic Montenegro through the local foods and wine. These foods come from the garden and fruit trees on the estate making this another great farm to table option in the Meanderbug farm stay network. Be sure to try the smoked fish that the family prepares through a centuries-old process. Visitors to the Đurišić family vineyards and micro-winery will be treated as family guests, where they will experience the traditional hospitality of the Montenegrin people. Book your place now as spaces are limited for this intimate setting.
