← Back to ‘The World’s Best Airbnbs’

Albanians nod their heads to say “no” and shake their heads to say “yes”. Aside from being an extremely confusing adjustment for foreigners arriving in the Eastern European country, it’s somewhat of a metaphor for the country’s reputation among western travelers. We don’t typically think of Albania as a garden spot. Our thoughts probably head more along the lines of cloudy weather, track suits and the country’s bold breaking of ties with the Soviet Union in the late 1950s and early 60s.

Now do a quick google image search and tell us if that matches your expectations. Weren’t expecting turquoise water, rolling green hills and quaint villages of red-roofed stone homes were you? If your interest is peaked (ours is if you can’t tell), why not check out what the country has to offer on the Airbnb front? With that, here are the top surprisingly beautiful Airbnbs in Albania.

County Guesthouse, Shpella

And what about the country? This picturesque guesthouse located in the rural village of Shpella will have you waking up to views of the striking stone peaks that surround the village, and a quick walk to the village will give you a front row seat to life in the Albanian countryside. The house itself looks fit for a postcard.

Waterfront Apartment, Sarandë

Harande is a small resort city in southern Albania on the Ionian Sea and this one-bedroom apartment is one of its gems. You can go down and stroll along the water under the palm trees, hit the beach, or just take in the view from the apartment itself. Hard to go wrong here.
