Unfortunately, due to the uncertainty of these times, we will NOT be open most likely for the whole season, or until further notice. We have to be extra precautious because of our location in a small village with some people at risk. We hope you understand. Instead we will continue to grow food and renovate our property, so we can give all of our guests an even better experience in 2021.


Keep an eye on our Facebook page and Instagram to follow our developments throughout the season. We will also

start a crowd funding campaign soon, in order to help pay for a new bar/restaurant area and outdoor kitchen!


All the best and hope to see you again and in good health!


The Balkan Retreat is an organic small-holding situated in a tiny village in the hills of the Fruška Gora National Park in Serbia. 


We combine arts, hospitality and permaculture.


We value creativity, nature, good food, campfires, music, friendship, simplicity and try to live  sustainably.

We are open seasonally between May and October.

We are located here:

Please look at the maps below for directions. Google doesn't think our road is connected to the main road and tends to take your car on a hiker's route in the forest!  For a less adventurous journey, where you won't get stuck, we recommend you study the maps below or get in touch. Follow brown road signs to Bešenovo Monastery and we are 100m from the monastery. 

Viamichelin has an accurate route planner too.
