This is a new hotel on the banks of the River Osum, but it isn't sterile as so many new properties are. It is simple, but has style and people working here who care that things are done properly. The rooms have great river views. An easy walk into town and up to the castle. Recommended!

I arrive and the heat is already bearing down. We catch a taxi to the fort entrance and then it's offer to wandering. It takes about 2 hours to fully ...
So it's true, little less than 1 month out of Albania and it has drawn me back in! Having see so much of the coastline there, we decided to venture inland to the mountains (partly because we wanted to see these places, but we also hoped it would be cooler higher up, we were wrong!) Following an overnight bus from Athens, then a change of bus in Fier, 14 hours after leaving Athens we arrived in the town of Berat after following what seemed like a dirt track for the last hour (At ...
Berat 18 degrees, overcast with sunny periods
I am packed and out early and catch a furgon to Fier from Gjirokaster. I will change there for one that heads to Berat. I notice some Roma families setting up tents near the bus station, Severin and Sabine had said they will try and witness down there in the next few days. It is a growing community.
By 7.00, I am on the way. It is packed but many get off at Tepelene and other places and by the time we settle down ...
