ETHNO VILLAGE BOGUT

Relaxing dent of the Lopatnica river and view over the Troglav mountain

In the vicinity of the Valley of the Serbian kings, at the village Bogutovac, on the altitude of 300 m, three wooden cottages were built which together with old house, restaurant, mini-farm, orchard, a garden and a river beach make Ethno Village Bogut. We are located 24 km away from the city of Kraljevo, on the road between Zica Monastery and Studenica Monastery, and just 8 km away from the Maglic castle. Authentic Serbian countryside landscape, the dent of the river Lopatnica and a relaxing view over the Troglav mountain with tasty domestic food and comfy accommodation will help you to rest and enjoy Serbia. Welcome to the household of Filipovic family!

ACCOMMODATION

Wooden cottage accommodation

Fully equipped cottages, with 12 persons to accommodate and 9 beds (3 apartments and one double room) give you an opportunity for comfortable long stay. Every cottage has a private bathroom with a shower bath, tiny kitchen with a refrigerator, a terrace and all conditions for a peaceful vacation away from urban centers. Central heating system and air conditioners give you a chance for yearlong visits. There is no TV in the cottages but we do have radios with CD players.

Our household is far away enough from the busy roads and other houses, so if you are not listening to music, you can completely relax in the peaceful atmosphere of the Serbian village. Close to the cottages, there are enough parking places for our guests. Despite some cars, there is no other source of aero pollution in the nearby vicinity. Smoking in the cottages is not permitted. Water in all taps in the household is for drinking. Existence of the European crayfish is a proof of the cleanliness of water in the river Lopatnica which flows through our household. Free Wi-Fi internet connection available at the restaurant and some cottages. We plan to expand the capacity and we do cooperate with other farm-stays and rural accommodation when larger groups are coming.

Around the Kopaonik mountain, there are many mineral spas with hot mineral water. In our vicinity there are two of those which are partly working like Bogutovac Spa, Matarsuka Spa or Josanicka Spa wihich is recently reconstructed, but still with small capacities. The one worth visiting is definitely Vrnjacka Spa, as the most visited spa in Serbia.

There are a few interesting events held in our vicinity. The most famous one is ”Veseli spust”, held in July, when over 10 thousand people meet at Ibar river with improvised rafts, with music, food and drinks on the boats and floats. Maglic Fest is a new event which is growing rapidly and attracting more and more people every year in May to visit Maglic castle. One of the most popular events in Serbia is Guca festival, held in Guca town, just 50 km away from our village. May is also reserved for the traditional event of Mountaineering Association of Serbia at Stolovi Mountain. On this day, hikers from all over Serbia join hiking to the highest peak of Stolovi mountain where wild horses live freely. Dates of those events are flexible, so it is advisable to check it before you decide to go.

Ethno village Bogut offers winter vacation as well. Snowshoeing and sledding is something that everybody likes. When you return to the warm cottage after a busy day in the snow, tasty food and dent of the river is all you need when you are on a family trip.

WHAT TO DO

Eco tourism: hiking, rafting, MTB, cycling, tandem paragliding

If you are a nature lover and you enjoy active vacations or you support sustainable and eco-tourism development, Bogutovac village is a perfect choice for you. The view from our terrace overlooks the forested mountain of Troglav, named after ancient Slavic god. It is dominant from above the village, and there are many possibilities/directions to climb its highest peak. Try with this track which goes from our place (19 km, 1144 total ascent). If you prefer shorter hikes, there are many options for that as well. We are surrounded by mountains which are protected by the government as nature parks which have perfect terrains for hiking, mountain biking, mushroom hunting and collecting herbal teas and other wild fruit products. We highly suggest you to visit Lojanik – unique petrified forest site (location).

Ibar river flows through our village and it is perfect for rafting, favorite summer activity as our guests say. Rafting in Ibar is perfect for most visitors, families, rafting beginners and experienced rafters alike. Ibar is wild in a couple of rapids (max. Class III rapids according to IRF) where it provides great opportunities for extreme athletes on the water, but it also offers a relaxing and idyllic boating with moderate rapids, for those who are not so adventurous. The rafting itself lasts from 2,5 to 3 hours, depending on the water altitude, length of breaks and the chosen route. There is enough time for playing, swimming and taking photos as well, on shingle beaches and other places that are convenient for rest. Please, contact our sales to organize an unforgettable rafting experience for you and your friends, and note that our activity provider requires 4 participants or more to arrange this activity.

We mentioned Lopatnica river earlier as a left contributory of Ibar river, having the spring at the Cemerno mountain. This river is the main resource of our village and it flows through our household. European crayfish and trout fish in this river are the proof of the extraordinary quality of its water. There are many artificial and natural pools along its valley, available for public use. We prefer to swim in the pool which we make together with our neighbors every year within our household.

Paragliding is one of the most accessible and safest forms of free flight. Our village was a venue for the first flights, trainings and competitions in Serbia in 80ies. It is a part of our offer and you can easily do it. Good health conditions and solid decision on flying are the main preconditions. Our provider has a team of pilots led by a trophy paragliding sportsman, long time competitor and a member of a national team at the paragliding accuracy championship. Depending on the direction of a wind, the pilot, your flying instructor chooses a departure place and a flying route. There are several interesting locations on Stolovi and Kopaonik mountain from where paragliders often take off and fly throughout the year. If you decide to enjoy the beautiful landscapes from a bird’s eye perspective, feel free to contact us. Tandem paragliding is running all year long, in good wind conditions.

There are two bicycles available for renting in the household. If you would like to organize the perfect team building event with your employees don’t hesitate to write use us. Lunch in the nature, kayaking, archery, mountain biking (MTB), ATV ride or hiking for larger groups is possible to do here.
