Opened in 2005, Rilindja (“Rebirth” in Albanian) was named for the economic prosperity owner Alfred Selimaj dreamed that sustainable tourism could bring to the people of the area and is the oldest operating tourism business in Valbona.
There are four small-but-cozy “Alpine Style” rooms upstairs, 2 which are simple twins, and 2 which have a 2.5 x 3m bedroom (with double bed) plus another attached room (same size) with a day bed, table etc. Basically, Alfred’s enclosing the old balconies to make larger rooms. These will be good for 3 friends, small (quiet!) families or someone wanting to stay longer and use the second room as a sort of study. There is also one larger room with its own private bathroom (five rooms total). The 4 alpine rooms share one large bathroom
