EXTEND YOUR STAY: TASTE THE COUNTRYSIDE

detox days

Meet the rural side of Macedonia! The genuine hospitality of the Macedonians who live far from the busy capital; breath the fresh air coming from the surrounding mountains and the little river valley; get-together with your family and friends in nature (evening by the fire is a must!). You may pick up the eggs for your breakfast from the roost nextdoor, and meet the locals and their little home farms. Or, you are welcome to mess with our LaSoy expert in your “make-100%-natural-cosmetics” course.

spices days

Wake up with the smell of freshly baked breakfast and coffee, and join the breakfast table in the beautiful garden of your household. Learn and taste the nature: what is lemon balm, mint, rosemary, chamomile, St Johns wort, marigold, thyme and basil, and how to use it in your kitchen, what are their medical benefits, how to make aromatic wines and liqueurs. Make-your-own-lunch with the locals: the tasty Balkan “Gibanitza”, but in the original way: with hand-made dough layers. And enjoy it with pure homemade yoghurt.
