We try to offer the food and drink produced at our farm, for the authenticity sake. Our dishes are characterized by simplicity, quality and taste, everything we make is made by old-time recipes, no modernization is involved. The most sought after dishes are homemade fritters, scrambled eggs, homemade cheese and clotted cream, ham, kačamak, raspberry juice… Everything that used to be the part of traditional table once, we serve it today.

The household employs a 5-member family. They all work alike, mother in the kitchen and with guests accommodation, and the sons are active in organizing horse riding and other tours, as well as in rural jobs, without which the household wouldn’t even exist. The host welcomes each guest cordially, and they are all involved in enabling a pleasant stay for the household guests. This is the reason guests come back year in year out. During the summer period, when there is more to work, they get a lot of help from their relatives and family friends who live nearby. These are, probably, last generations who are raised like this. Their love for village and agriculture is stronger than anything else that comes with modern, present-day society.
Husbandry and horse keeping are primary activities of the Katun rural household. The advantage of this household is that all the dishes served to their guests are produced at their farm. All the meat and dairy products come from the household.
Katun rural household has also got a small garden, products are used by them and by their guests.
As to horse keeping, this is something of a family tradition in this household. Horses are the main offer. The household organizes horse riding school and riding tours. Horse riding school is available to all the age groups. The instructors will help their students to make those first steps easily. It is also possible to organize riding tours, their duration varying from an hour to several days. You can visit more than 5 lakes and numerous captivating Durmitor landscapes while riding a horse.
Rural household Katun is situated in the National Park Durmitor, at the very foothill of this beautiful mountain. It is placed along the panoramic route leading around Durmitor, the famous Durmitor ring. A charming glacier lake called Pošćensko Lake can be found only several minutes from the household. On the road towards the mountain, just several kilometers away, a visitor comes across three mountain lakes, Modro Lake, Svrablje Lake and Valovito Lake. And the view on several Durmitor peaks you come upon while on this road is simply breathtaking. This is also the direction towards the Sedlo pass and all the mountain tours start there. And finally, a water spring called Studenac is also close by, and visiting it is simply a must. Some 4 kilometers away from the household, passing through the lake plateau, two lakes can be found, called Vražije and Riblje Lake and close to these you’ll come across a UNESCO protected Greek graveyard or tombs. Black Lake is 7 km away from the household, and close to it you’ll find Jablan and Zminje lakes. Tara kanyon is 25 km away. When you take the road towards Sinjajevina, you will pass through villages called Gornja and Donja Bukovica, where the Bukovica river is located, a river famous for its clean, drinking, class A 1 water. This river is also captivating because of its waterfalls and pools, which are naturally carved into the stones of this river. If you continue further on this road, towards Šavnik, you will come upon the Podmalinsko Monastery, dedicated to the St. Archangel Michael and the folk stories say it’s the monastery built by the king Uroš Nemanjić around 1252.
