In the first and original Valbona Guesthouse, expect a warm welcome from Nene (Mother) Sose Selimaj.  Join her in the kitchen for fabulous homecooked meals.  Those interested in handicrafts may want to learn to card, spin and knit the traditional raw wool that keeps us toasty warm during the harsh winters.
