We chose this place based on other reviews and photos and we weren't disappointed. The view is sublime! Villa Rustica is difficult to find in the narrow, steep streets of the old town so call ahead for detailed directions. Or do as we did and find a taxi to lead you there. Beside the villa is a pedestrian only path... More

We stayed in a four-bed apartment and loved it. It is close to the center of town but far enough a way to be quiet. Excellent value for money. The balcony is the perfect to place to enjoy a beer and a stunning view of the lake.

We arrived at 3AM from Skopje and Dimce was awaiting us. He speaks English better than we do and is very friendly and laid back. Our room was about 33USD. Shower, great view, great location... you can't go wrong here. There's a reason his reviews are so consistent. Dimce also gave us a ride to the bus stop on our... More

Can't wait to go back to what was truly a magical stay. The "bang for the buck" was unbelievable and although it was initially disappointing that we had to make our way to the market to purchase breakfast foods, it turned out a delightful experience to begin each day on the deck, eating a light breakfast, and enjoying the beautiful...

We spent 3 days in Ohrid on New Year Eve. We arrived late at night (3 a.m.on 31st of December) and were warmly welcomed by the owner Dimce Georgiev. Mr. Georgiev is a very nice and helpful guy, who made our stay incredibly comfortable. He can give an advice about good restaurants and order a taxi if you ask him.... More

Our balcony at Villa Rustica, provided some of the most sublime views I’ve ever experienced. For the first time, in all my travels, I felt that I could be content with just lounging and observing the unfolding of the day into evening - the moments we did, were spectacular. Our double was roomy, clean, and bright, with a very comfortable... More

I spend 4 nights in Villa Rustica and I immediately loved the view of Lake Ohrid, just breath taking! I received a warm welcome of the son of the owner and showed me my room. The rest of the days I did not need the owners, because I was exploring Ohrid. The room was nice and clean, simple furnishment (do... More

It was home away from home. I chose without hesitation the Villa Rustica after viewing its website and reading the reviews here. I stayed in Apartment 2 for 10-days (July 30-Aug 10). Outstanding accommodations, beautifully furnished, very comfortable, and the many windows and balcony door provided refreshing lake/mountain breezes, spectacular view and sunlight. Evening relaxation on the balcony, with a... More

Amazing view of Ohrid lake and the surrounding mountains. Great location in Ohrid old city. We stayed in the studio apartment which was very comfortable for us (family of 5). Owner was nice and welcoming with perfect English. Overall, the place offers great value for money.
