“Vila Franceze” was projected and built in the eighties of last century. Some French & Albanian architects contributed to it. At that time “The Villa” was supposed to serve as a roof for them during the building time of the Koman’s hydroplane. It did so until the early nineties, time when communism collapsed in Albania.
After that, some properties were returned to previous owners. Villa was purchased by the landlord himself. Mr. Zef Hajdaraj.
How to find us.
The Hotel & Campsite “Vila Franceze” is located along Drini River, at the entrance of Koman area, about 2km off the Koman Terminal, setting out from Shkodra city. The Villa was renovated in the 1980s and consists of a 16 rooms building, equipped with toilet facilities, a kitchen and dining room, a bar, as well as a camping ground. Villa is surrounded by vineyards and fruit trees and has also a greenhouse that grows fruits and vegetables of season.
The Villa Franceze is built in the ’80s. The communist regime has built this villa to accommodate the french engineers, that worked to build the Koman Hydropower Plant.
With the fall of communism, the lands were returned to the owners and in ‘95 my father bought the Vila Franceze
since it was built on grandfather’s land. At that time this villa was totally destroyed and the lands
surrounding were desolate. With the vision of a far-sighted man, as well as with my support, my father managed to turn the Vila Franceze into a real oasis. He, in addition to the restoration of
accommodation facilities, worked hard to plant the surrounding lands with vineyards, walnuts, dates and
decorative trees, as well as improved water infrastructure, enabling fishing and navigation.
The locals call it the Villa of the French and we decided to preserve this tradition, being convinced that
that villa has a history that needs to be told to generations.
