Was unsere Gäste sagen



"Villa Miela is a beautiful boutique guest-house with a difference - the owners offer a range of sustainable activities as part of the deal, including kayaking, hiking, wine-tasting, mountain biking and more...located just 1km from Virpazar, gateway to Lake Skadar National Park, the lodge is an ideal base for exploring Lake Skadar and its environs."

"A really fantastic experience in a beautiful part of the world. Ben and Emma are fantastic hosts, the accommodation was lovely and we felt that we got privileged access to genuinely unknown parts of Montenegro. I hesitate to give 5 stars simply because if we try to go again we may find that they are fully booked."
Russ and Liz Roberts, August 2013

"Hard to praise [the holiday] enough. It kept three teenagers completely happy which is no mean feat. It was beautiful, active, very comfortable and highly informative - what more could you want?"
Kate Vernon-Rees, August 2013

"This has been an incredible holiday, we didn't stop saying how wonderful it was all the time we were there. Everything from the scenery, the food, the activities, the people, they all joined together to make an unforgettable holiday and one that I want to recommend to all my friends."
Jane Barnes, July 2013

"A fantastic active holiday. The days sped by but it felt like we had been on vacation for weeks! Ben and Emma were great hosts who did everything to make your stay enjoyable and unique. Go there before the crowds catch on to what they are missing."
Jenny Abbott, July 2013

"The whole trip was fabulous - walking through wild herbs in the mountains, incredible views, swimming in the clearest mountain pools with no one else around, amazing lunch with Tanya, kayaking and swimming in the lake, wine tasting, a great bunch of people...we loved it all."
Sue Winsbury, July 2013

"Ben & Emma have woven such principles into the activities - from eating at a local farm to bearing witness to the park's natural resources - it was an effortlessly, responsible holiday."
Vibha Jaiswal, July 2013

"Excellent. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone that is looking for an active holiday, stunning scenery and great fun. Your hosts will go out of their way to ensure you have a great time."
Hayley Valente, July 2013

"A truly memorable holiday, all I expected and more. Outstanding. And a great father/daughter bonding time that neither of us will forget"
Gearoid Lane, June 2013

"The villa grounds are kept as a natural haven for wildlife, whilst not being too wild for visitors. The well planned tours have a minimal impact on the local environment and, hopefully, provide a positive precedent for the locals and National Park to follow. All in all, the holiday was fantastic!"
Jamie Anderson, May 2013

"The Kayak trips on Lake Skadar blew me away. The relative solitude combined with the impressive landscapes on both the Montenegrin and Albanian sides of the lake made it one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. I really couldn't have wished for a better holiday."
Mandy Reynolds, May 2013

"We are reborn! Simply the best holiday we have ever been on!"
Gabi and Paul Brogan, August 2012

"There were many memorable events; easing ourselves into crystal clear, fresh water, freezing rock pools! The 2 excellent meals prepared for us by Tania at her home...everything home produced; breads, cheese, cured ham, wine, hare casserole etc. The kayak trip and the visit to the monasteries where we met a wonderfully enthusiastic nun and the enthusiasm and helpfulness of our hosts : Ben and Emma. They could not have done more for us"
April Saltmarsh, June 2012

"5 stars. Our hosts could not do enough for us."
David Bell, June 2012

"Excellent, one of the best holidays we have ever had. Just the right mix of activities, met and made new friends, stayed at a brilliant tranquil location. Perfect."
Debbie McCarty, June 2012

"An absolutely awesome holiday and we would have liked more time to see even more of the fantastically stunning scenery, based in a great house with superb hosts! What more can I say, other than wish we were still there!!"
David Lewis & Caroline Sharp, May 2012

"Emma and Ben offer a personal introduction to an area which is not yet highly developed for activity/tourism. Their lovely villa is beautifully appointed and a perfect base for the guided trips and activities. We enjoyed a wonderful hike into the local hills, swimming in seclusion in (ice cold but refreshing) rock pools of the type you usually see only in brochures of the tropics (and which are usually crowded with hundreds of others), a fantastic kayaking trip to isolated island monasteries, and an on and off road driving and walking tour across a landscape that varied from high narrow passes to snaking rivers and luscious flood plains. Their enthusiasm and knowledge was really helpful in allowing us to get the most out of the trips."
John and Jean Almond, August 2011

"...it was all so good. The scenery was amazing and spectacular but without the crowds to share it with. Canoeing on Lake Skadar with no-one else, swimming in the warm water, watching the wild-life, and visiting uninhabited islands and islands with a monastery and convent, hardly visited by anyone else... Emma and Ben use local people where they can to share their heritage, for example having a meal in a local house with delicious home produce and wine...an excellent holiday, one of the best ever and we've been on some amazing ones."
Amanda and Adrian Parker, August 2011

"Great kayaking, birding, and hospitality of our hosts. It was one of the most adventurous holidays we have ever been on. The beauty is astounding, the ability to see nature in a low impact way is amazing as well. My husband couldn't get over the wild figs and produce growing everywhere. It opened our eyes to a whole new world."
Christina Spann and Brian Edwards, September 2011

"Thank you so much again we had such a wonderful and unusual holiday! It was one of the best holidays we have ever had. We enjoyed our tours, nature, nice company and hospitality - and the welcome meal was so tasty and delicious, (the best in Montenegro) you should think about opening your own restaurant. Thanks!!!"
