Ohrid Lake Riviera
Ohrid Lake is one of the largest on the Balkan Peninsula and one of the oldest in the world. The lake is known for its clarity and freshwater pearls. As you will see during your stay in your chosen holiday villas in Albania, the cultural influences are mixed here, as the Greek and Macedonian borders are close. The greater part of the lake belongs to the Republic of Macedonia, the smaller to the Republic of Albania, where the town of Pogradec lies. In total, more than 200,000 people live around the lake. NOVASOL offers apartments and holiday homes in Albania, whether in Pogradec or other places like Durrës.
