About Helena Gray
I am an architect who cares deeply for the quality of the natural and built environment. I build and restore buildings that I like to inhabit myself. There is much joy in the projects that I do and the outcome is always quality. My interests are in natural, health-giving building materials and buildings that promote well being. If you are looking for a special natural setting and quality architecture – my buildings are the right choice for you. My family and myself share our time between Scotland, Italy, Montenegro and Croatia. We feel very privileged to be able to do this. We care about our gusts as we provide the highest standard of hospitality throughout a year.
Helena Gray purchased this House in 2004
Why Helena Gray chose Žabljak

You’ll love our place because of the location, the ambiance, the outdoors space, the people, and the neighbourhood. Our apartments are good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, families (with kids), and bigger groups (Max 8).
What makes this House unique
Architect owner has recently built this chalet suitable for all seasons. It is set in a spectacular and unspoiled natural environment of one of the hidden treasures of Montenegro – the National Park of Durmitor. It presents a unique chance to experience life in a generations-old rural environment and a picturesque setting that is the small town of Zabljak, in the hart of Durmitor mountains. The UNESCO protected setting of the National Park of Durmitor, where the house is located, is a true delight for all the connoiseurs of nature, winter and summer sports and traditions typical of Montenegro and its long history of living with and adapting to nature. This house within walking distance from the Black Lake (Crno Jezero) - a premium tourist attraction of Durmitor mountain range. The tourist season stretches all year round with plenty of activities on offer, including full range of winter sports, hiking, rafting, mountain biking, fishing, etc. This location is nature's real treasure.

Cute & comfortable mountain house
Perfect location within short walk of Black Lake and with amazing hikes into the Durmitor mountains straight from the front door.
Comfortable and well equipped - we really enjoyed our stay.
It was a pleasure to host Louise and her family. Delightful guests!
Great central and comfortable cabin
We stayed 5 nights in july 2017 (2 adults and 2 kids). The cabin is great - everything seems new and the place is clean.
The location is perfect: 10 minutes walk to the black lake - no need to bother with crowded parking. Many hiking paths start from the area so it is perfect for nature lovers.
The welcome was friendly and the owner ready to answer our questions.
A very small minus - on the warm summer days, we missed an outdoor terrasse or balcony, or just outdoor furniture in the garden. But still a 5 stars location!
It is our pleasure to host guests from different parts of the world and we endeavour to make their stay in our lodge enjoyable and memorable. We are always grateful for thoughtful suggestions from our guests and we will respond constructively to these suggestions in order to make our guests' experience even better.
Charming mountain getaway
My girlfriend and I had a great week away at this charming chalet right on the footsteps of the Durmitor national park. The house is built right into the hillsides and footpaths taking you up high into the mountains are a stones throw away. The property is a little outside Zabljak, around a 3-4 minute drive, making it feel like it's right out in the countryside but it's also very handy for shopping and cafes. The house had loads of space and was well equipped making it easy to be completely self sufficient.
The national park was incredible, it's a bit of a hidden gem. You really need to think of Swiss alps if you want to picture it - however without the massive associated price tag. There are loads of well defined routes for beginner walkers but also much more challenging routes if you fancy. The lake has an fantastic colour and is very well kept. There are plenty of bike hire stations and I'd recommend seeing the surrounding area by bike.
If you fancy eating out there are a number of good restaurants with really low prices making it difficult to bother cooking yourself. Our favoroute was cafe Oro and is perfect for a light snack or meal.
It is wonderful to host visitors who appreciate both the house and its location. This review inspires me, as the owner, to provide top quality hospitality to our future guests.
Nettes Häuschen, super Gegend!
Ilija ist absolut zuvorkommend und nett. Einzige Minuspunkte: Die Zufahrtsstraße ist durch Tagesausflügler zum Schwarzen See zugeparkt. Man kann nicht gleichzeitig duschen und abspülen, weil dafür der Wasserdruck nicht ausreicht.
Thank you for your comments. We constantly endeavour to improve our guests' experience.
Logement paisible, tb situé, Ilija très accueillant et sympa.
Estelle and her family were lovely guests and we recommend them to other hosts. We appreciate their attitude and constructive feedback. They would always be welcome to stay with us again.
