Rustic Modern Elegance
eat - stay - farm
When Shawn and Kyle first visited Albania they fell in love straight away. They knew that they wanted to move to this beautiful land and create a truly unique experience where people from around the world can play, explore and dine together.
"Bote" means "World" and here on the farm you will encounter food, culture and people from all over the globe. Whether you stay the night or come just for dinner, we know you will want to come back!
We have come to understand that human beings are a part of nature, and not its master. At Bote Farms we strive to live, work and play in harmony with the beautiful nature that surrounds us. We have taken an ecologically sound approach by using the sun, wind and water to harness energy for our farm and help provide the bounty that we share with you.
Our concern for mankind is interconnected with our concern for nature and so we look to nature with reverence, respect and humility. We have come to understand that we must be the modern guardians of the environment in order to secure a future on earth. Take a look at the community projects we are working on all over the Albanian countryside.
Let the quiet of the country wash over you as you take a vacation from your vacation here at Bote Farms.

A Farm Stay
Family style lunch and dinners served Wednesday through Sunday. Meals are served as part of the farm tours at our outdoor table with a spectacular view over looking the farms and the valley below.
With over 9 acres of crops ranging from orange groves to tomato fields, be a part of your own meal in this farm to table experience.
Our natural fresh water pool is crystal clear, and like the Blue Eye uses no chemicals. Enjoy cooling off from the day in the pool or enjoy a cool drink poolside.
Our wifi is open and fast but we doubt you will want to be on your phones except to take some great photos!
We built an old US Western town for our animals to live in. So go meet the goats at our theater, or visit chickens making their egg deposit at the bank, our sheep at the haberdashery or our horses at the Saloon.
Be inspired creatively and sign up for one of our craft classes where you can create one of a kind items.
