    They are both economists, an ex entrepreneurs who were engaged in furniture industry for 35 years and are now ready to retire. They have three children and a grandchildren who live in Podgorica - the capital of Montenegro.

    Zeljko and Rajka want to contunue living an active and dynamic everyday life through the valorization of the place of origin.
    During his working life, Zeljko has visited numerous European and Middle East countries, familiarized with various cultures and ethnicities and made a lot of friendships abroad. He speaks English, Italian and Russian and Rajka speaks English. Rajka is passionate about healthy nutrition, domestic cousine and aromatical and medical herbs.

    During summer Željko is engaged in producing vegetables for his family and he is looking forward to hosting helpers.

    The attractive location of the village Lalevici and our house provides the opportunity for everyday walks or bicycle rides through the countryside and to the Danilovgrad.

    Also, when the sun gets a little too hot during summer, there is possibility to take a refreshing swim in river Zeta (less than 1km distance from the house).

    The panoramic view from our house includes the view on the railway, agricultural lands, forest and river Zeta. The property is surrounded with plenty of wild local herbs such as wild pomegranate which is used for making organic domestic juice.

    The property and the house is ideal for nature lovers, artists, families with children, couples or loners who want to get away from a busy urban life and enjoy relaxing atmosphere.
