I don't think the problem is the lack of activity on the board, surely it's just that life in the village is slowing winding down after another summer season?

I'm very much considering another visit to the village a fortnight today for a week, as I'm pig sick of our Scottish "summer"

Could anyone tell me if the bars, restaurants etc will still be open for business and more importantly, what weather should I expect for that week?

Any assistance would be much appreciated!!

Yeah, stayed up in the Voula for a week in May and thoroughly enjoyed my time. I had booked a studio with a pool view but was upgraded to a family room (number 3) with an unbelievable sea view.
I usually try to get over once a year but I enjoyed my May visit so much I might sneak a wee week in September!!!!

I've spent a week in the village during mid-September the past two years. However, I'm off to Turkey for a week late August so I was considering coming over for a week in mid/late May this year. Can anyone advise me if the village will be getting busy by then and what's the usual weather at that time of year?

I thoroughly enjoyed my trip to Albania last Sunday, however the ferry trip over was scary, to say the least, thanks to the rain and thunderstorms.
The only down side was the lack of organisation - having paid the additional 23Euros for the trip to the ruins in Butrint, I ended up on a bus full of Russians and Poles, with no-one speaking English. However, when we eventually stopped at a Hotel for a coffee, I managed to get on the correct bus, but one of the guides (he'll know who he is) clearly thought that I'd not paid and even pulled me up again during the tour of the ruins which was totally uncalled for.

Apart from that, Butrint was amazing and the Albanian lady who showed us around was really informative and enthusiastic. When we returned to the Hotel for lunch, I was pleasantly surprised - the buffet was a lot better than I'd been led to expect by the earlier comments on here! Finally, I spent an hour in a pub in Sarande watching the last half of the Man Utd game whilst chatting, in broken English. to the locals and enjoying their brand of lager - an experience I'll never forget.

All in all, a very interesting day!!!!

Hi there, first post on the forum, so please be gentle with me!

I stayed in the village last year and we absolutely loved it. I seem to remember talking to a lady outside a travel shop, about 100 yards along from El Greco, about a day trip to Albania. Unfortunately, we could not book it up due to my mate's ill-health at the time, but as I'm visiting as a solo traveller this year, I'm keen to find out if the trip is available during my week (Mon 12-19 Sept)?

I look forward to hearing from you.
