Risto`s Guest House is located on the western slopes of the Galichitsa National Park in the village of Elshani, 10 km south of Ohrid and 1.5 km driving distance from the Ohrid Lake.

Nestled amidst large gardens, surrounded by mountain trees and offering wonderful views over the Lake of Ohrid, this place offers true hospitality to all who wish to explore this scenic region. The hosts serve home made drinks (wine and brandy), home made bread, traditional food and speak English fluently. Risto`s Guest House has clean and tidy single and double rooms, all featuring a terrace with wonderful views. The House is the perfect place to relax and recharge your batteries. Sitting on the terrace drinking coffee and enjoying the views of the lake is an experience in itself, but when it's time to get up and stretch your legs, there are plenty of things to do.Staying here in Elshani, visitors should experience some traditional Macedonian food.

Risto's Guesthouse offers a full menu and will happily prepare a traditional breakfast, lunch or dinner. However, this isn't fast food, so be sure to ask the owners about meal options as early as possible.Each room has its own balcony where you can enjoy fresh the air and fantastic views over the Lake Ohrid and its surrounding mountains. This village is a great place to enjoy hiking in the mountains, being a perfect starting point for a number of hiking trails for all ages and skill levels. The winding, steep streets of the village also provide for an unforgettable scenery.

The National Park of Mount Galicica with its flora and fauna, breathtaking views, caves, fresh air and tranquility is the best choice if you want to forget everyday stress. The Lake of Ohrid, which is one of the oldest in the world and among the deepest in Europe, has all the things a lake should have: clear water, delicious fish and extraordinary beauty that you can hardly forget.For our guests we have prepared a selection of activities such as walks in the National Park or daily excursions around the Lake of Ohrid, we organize a donkey safari and home activities (making bread and traditional food).
