Villa Permet - Three nights
Permet is another lovely little village in the mountains on the river in Southern Albania.
We are so spoilt finding the most beautiful hotels, and Villa Permet definitely exceeded our expectations once again. Within an instant of arriving you feel relaxed.
Villa Permet is an original home from the 1800s converted to a stunning hotel only 12 months ago, with the highest quality restoration, the architects respected the history of the building throughout.
Magical views, awesome owners and staff with a family feel, and the most sensational chef.
The rooms are very spacious, with a beautiful outlook over the mountain ranges. The beds were heavenly, the type where you could easily stay snuggled up all morning after a very peaceful sleep.
We loved the food journeys we were taken on by the sensational chef, the freshest quality of ingredients, traditional Albanian food with a fusion twist. The food was gourmet and the lamb was delicious, farm to plate, and locally resourced.
We enjoyed a lazy lunch each day in the beautiful restaurant, soaking up the sun on the beautiful terrace, you also are spoilt with the sunrises and sunsets over the mountain ranges.
A special thank you to Georgie (our nickname) and the owners for taking the best care of us and making sure we had everything we needed, he organised the most memorable horse ride through the mountains and canyon with Funky Guest House & Adventures and was helpful in contacting our taxi to get us to our next destination. Georgie also has a very extensive knowledge of wines, they have a solid collection of high-quality Italian, local, and Kosovo wines.
Cannot recommend Villa Permet highly enough, it is tucked away just up on the hill, only a few minutes walk from the centre of the village.
