A Love Story
Marie and Flamur met through love, married, and built a life together in both their home countries – Sweden and Albania. Marie was astounded by the Albanian secret – the country’s wealth found no boundaries, and every time she described the beauty of her new country to people she met, a seed of curiosity was sown. Experience Albania was planted when friends and former business colleagues started to ask questions, visit and pursue investment opportunities in the country. They were attracted to the purity and potential, the wealth of the land and unique culture and history. When people visit, they fall in love. With the people, the nature and the food. That’s where our story starts.
Our Name And Intention
Our intention has always been to create an authentic Albanian experience for our visitors and partners. Whether a family beach holiday or business trip to a limestone quarry, we provide an authentic experience of the country we love. And there is so much to experience. Experience Albania thus became the perfect name for our business.
In essence, we are bridging two cultures – Albania and Sweden – to contribute towards sustainable destination development of Albania. Combined, we have a unique knowledge of the tourism and destination management industry. Our strong roots in Albania and Sweden provide reassurance and security for our customers and partners.
Flamur Vila creates relationships to our Albanian partners, and with many years experience of hotel and restaurant management, he has a unique knowledge of the business. His Albanian heritage and heart constitutes the Albanian bridge pillar of our organisation.
With many years experience of destination management, tourism and business, Marie Vila is our Scandinavian bridge pillar with her presence as an innovative business leader and strong public business figure.
