Macedonia is a landlocked Republic in the central Balkan Peninsula. This small country is bordered by no less than than five countries, with Greece to the south. It is therefore a great starting point for exploring other countries, although the country has so much to offer in its own right. Macedonia holiday rentals are a doorway to a country rich in history and dramatic scenery, a location to stimulate both the mind and the body.
Although landlocked, the country has many beautiful lakes and rivers, so there's no shortage of exciting watersports available to those booking Macedonia holiday homes. Lake Ohrid, on the border with Albania, offers sailing and scuba diving and also plays host in the second half of August to an internationally renowned 30km swimming marathon. If whitewater kayaking is your thing, head to the spectacular Makta Canyon, 15 km southwest of Macedonia's capital city, Skopje.
With hilly terrain making up of half of Macedonia holiday apartments can provide easy access to locations for hiking, climbing, skiing and snowboarding. At the ski resort of Mavrovo, an hour's drive from Skopje, you can enjoy slopes 1860m above sea level and a roster of events such as the Snowboard EUROPA Cup and international slalom and giant slalom competitions. There's always something exciting to do or see with Macedonia holiday homes.
Macedonia holiday rentals are also great for history buffs. The country boasts some splendid archaeological sites, such as the ancient town of Heraclea Linkestis at the foot of Mount Baba, with its beautiful floor mosaics and basilicas. Alternatively, pay a visit from your Macedonia holiday apartments to some of the nation's 992 churches and monasteries, such as the Monastery of St Naum on the southern tip of Lake Ohrid, originally founded in 900 AD.
