Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
The property is located inside of Berat Castle, one of the oldest castles in the Balkan area and the only one still inhabited. It was built around the 13th century and has two outdoor areas on different levels. One has a great view over the city and Tomorri's Mountain and the other one guarantees a total privacy to the guests, offering a relaxing view with its green areas full of roses. The property has been partially renovated recently but retains all the architecture that characterizes it.

The space
Mr. Josiph lives on the property with his wife, is a professional baker and runs a traditional wood-fired oven. He is a sunny person who likes to share local traditions with guests. He doesn't speak English very well, but he use to make himself understood perfectly.

Guest access
Guests will be able to access outdoor areas, bedroom and toilet areas

Location

Berat, Albania

Inside Berat castle there are many houses with historical elements. A Mosque, "Red Mosque", which can be identified by it's lonely minaret (a staircase inside provides access to the top), more than 20 Christian churches, and Onufri National Museum which surrounds one of the largest Orthodox churches with many 16th century paintings, by "Master Onufri", and a decorative alter inside.
The most striking thing about this castle is that, unlike any other ancient castle, life inside its ancient walls continues to this day! What exists inside the castle is an entirely different world from the city of Berat below: its own town with houses, bars and restaurants, churches and bazaars, museums and monuments, surrounded by an especially lush landscape that breathes even more life into this mythical place. It all seems very unreal!
The houses are located on one side of the castle, looking out into the river and the city below. This view, for visitors, it’s absolutely breathtaking.
