We stayed with Flaviu and Lidia in their lovely mountain home for three amazing days in May. The steep climb up the mountain felt like leaving the world behind and entering a green springtime paradise.
We enjoyed some fantastic hikes in the sunlit meadows and woodlands, helped plant tomatoes and learned to use the scythe. We met their neighbours and tasted some great fresh local food. The boys enjoyed watching the neighbour's kittens and the milking of the cows.
Flaviu and Lidia are interesting people, with a wide understanding of what is important in life, a great perspective and open minds. We enjoyed some great conversation, and walked back down the hill with a spring in our step as we have made a real connection.
What a fantastic experience! We thank our generous hosts for their time, patience and generosity, hopefully one day we can revisit their piece of paradise.

I would say excellent stay, but for me it was more than that, because it was so inspiring that thanks to Flaviu and Lidia I wanted to move there as well:).As you can see from the pics, the place itself and the surroundings are great, but the experience its even more grandiose that you can imagine. Because whatever the reason you might have to visit their place,either for a nice holiday or if you looking for a remote place in the wilderness or even a spiritual experience, you couldn't find a better place to remember a life time,,,I highly recommend it!
I was at this place in the Apuseni Mountains and I sincerely say that it is absolutely awesome. The two hosts speak English very well and the landscape is absolutely dreamlike. If you want quiet, fresh air, mountains and an active holiday (you can do cycling, hiking and photograph even deer), I strongly recommend you to go. It is a place that I will visit again.
I've spent one week-end at this lovely house in the mountains and it felt so relaxing. The energy of the house and surrounding area is amazing!
Arriving there is not so easy, going up-hill is tiring, but it is definitely worth the effort as the view from up there is really beautiful!
I recommend you to ask the hosts to come and wait you to the valley and carry at least you're luggage with their 4wd atv and if you don't feel very comfortable going uphill on a steep path, you can enjoy the 4wd atv as well! Another thing... if you're scared by the mud, then be sure you go there when it not rains because the path uphill is an old dirt road... The inside of the house is cozy, and clean and the hosts are nice people and they assist you with whatever you need! Great experience! Recommended!
Lidia and Flaviu are a happy couple, very kind, friendly and full of life. Their house it's a very special place with hand painted walls by Lidia's art, sorrounded by wild nature. I visited them with my wife and we had a memorable time, recharged our batteries and enjoyed the tranquility of this unique retreat on a mountain peak. It's the place where you will discover how simple and beautiful life is! The birds are singing happily away and the water is the purest that you could ever imagine! It's worth going there at least once in a lifetime! I would go there at least once a year! We will definetely visit them again in the near future! In few words: a piece of heaven!
A wooden house,clean with beautiful people who are glad to welcome the guests.A house up in the mountains at about 600m altitude,surrounded by mountains and valleys where you can really ful,see andhear the nature.It has a wonderful view and we were lucky enough to have a beautiful weather.We've been there with our kids and we've spent a wonderful week away from the noise and restlessness of the town.We will definitley come back one day.
This place is great, a remote house high up in the mountains with peaceful atmosphere and great views. You can find a lot of rural accommodation places in Transilvania, but Flaviu and Lidia’s place for sure stands out: it’s remoteness make it authentic, unspoiled by the civilization advance makes you feel like turning back in the time when people really needed to walk to get their houses :).
After our first visit we still keep coming back whenever we have the time for a glass of local wine and great talks with the hosts.
Flaviu was very kind and waited us at the start of the 20 minutes hike to the house, he arrange a safe parking place for our car in the village. The house is clean and welcoming, you will have all the comfort you need (including good wifi for the internet dependent ones ;).
