Car: Recommended

Log Cabin overlooking mountain in Durmitor National Park, which has 23 peaks over 2,200m and 18 lakes. Just 250 metres from Savin Kuk ski lifts and facilities - useful in summer too for effortless views!. Only 3km from amenities in Zabljak the highest resort in the Balkans. Spring to autumn activities include walking, mountain biking, Jeep tours, horse riding, visiting the Black Lake, sight seeing etc. Rafting in the dramatic Tara Canyon (or 7th highest bungee jump in Europe!) only 20km away. In winter downhill and cross country skiing and snowboarding are the most popular.

Other Activities: white water Tara rafting,

Ski: Savin Kuk ski lift are just 250 metres away and open in winter (skiing) and summer (great views from the top). One of the best ski areas though relatively small. Highest lift 2313m and resturants/lifts start at 1563. Ski season normally Christmas to end March. 15 slopes including 5 red and 2 black with 3.9km of pistes. Ski & snowboard equipment rental just 250 metres away of 2-3km away in Zabljak. Caretakers who live only ~100 metres away can arrange inexpensive and friendly ski lessons (and other activities in summer) if desired.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: British and married with 2 school kids now living near London. Enjoy travelling and outdoor activities. Accountant who has lived and worked worldwide (before kids!) and always wanted to own property away from the crowded wet UK close to enjoyable activities and attractions! We fell in love with Montenegro in 2005/6, with its great coastal and mountain scenery, history and friendly people. We thought Zabljak/Durmitor had huge and unrealised potential with its high mountains, Black Lake plus many smaller lakes, breathtaking Tara Canyon only 20 minutes away, with rafting, skiing, walking and other outdoor activities. It still needs significant investment (spa’s, more/new ski lifts, etc) before the hordes will arrive, but there have been significant improvements already (excellent new road sections from coast to Zabljak finished, some new hotels, etc.). Meanwhile this area remains great for people who enjoy beautiful scenery and outdoor activities away from the crowds.

Why the Owner Chose Virak, Montenegro:
1. Great location: Easily accessible in summer and winter (next to regularly snowploughed road), with great mountain/rural views from the many windows and only 250 metres from the ski-lifts (handy in summer too!) and only about 3km from the Zabljak shops. Friendly neighbours including the caretaker family who look after it for us. 2. High Standard (now!): It is now much higher standard than most other chalets in the area since we’ve replaced all the insides except the floorboards!. It has: new roof; new insulation; new electrics; new double glazed windows; new wood panelling; new electrics and lights; new kitchen; new stairs/steps; renovated bathroom plus new bathroom & entranceway/front door; new electronics (flat screen TV, satellite, etc.); new wood burning stove/radiators; central heating; 3000L water tank; some new furniture; etc. Started renting recently to contribute towards the high bills!

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
Much better location and standard than most other chalets in the area: more spacious; great views from the many downstairs windows; accessible all year round; well equipped (flat screen TV, washing machine; etc.); great rural location near ski lifts yet only a few km from Zabljak shops and restaurants.
