There are few words to describe the beauty of this place. The sounds of the river and the forest give you a state of quiet as you rarely find it. The manor ... once you get there, you do not want to leave anymore. A place in the countryside where you are transported in the past, when life flowed peacefully...
Myself and my husband stayed here in June for five nights and felt unbelievably relaxed and connected with the nature around us. The sights are spectacular, truly magical mountain views! We took lots of walks around the village and explored the surroundings without venturing too far, but found plenty to see. The back garden has fantastic panorama of the area, there are plenty of landmarks that you can discover like the pyramid shaped rock in the garden, the pre-Christian deity portrait drawn on the mountain cliff overlooking the village, the fossilized foot prints on the bedrock along the river bank five minutes' walk from the house. Round the back of this there is what looks like a giant's throne with an old inscription. For such a remote location there is so much to see. We made sure we had appropriate footwear and clothing for mountain treks as advised by the host and it was the right thing to do. If you didn't see houses here and there you would think you are in the middle of nowhere. However we never felt unsafe as host was always available on the other end of the phone for any help.
We will definitely come back to explore more!
Myself and family spend a weekend in this amazing property and location away form the very busy day to day rush of the city life in July 2017.
Located in an amazing landscaping, surrounded by mountains, hills and rivers, this is definitely the place we will always go back for a special touch of nature, peace, traditions and tranquility.
The accommodation is perfect for families with kids or couples, with access to modern day facilities mixed with authentic Romanian village house architecture, whereby each corner of it has a 100 plus years story to tell! Not to mention that at night time the view of the Milkyway is stunning!
We thank Ramona and Paul for being great hosts, for all the assistance in planning the trip and making it memorable!
If you wish to convince yourselfs that fairytales are for real, you must visit this place!
We will definitely be back for more stories!
I booked this stay directly with the owner recently and it was absolutely unforgettable. The location is magical, very peaceful and worth the 3 and a half hour journey from Bucharest airport. The owner was very helpful with giving us directions to the place and all the assistance we needed. The house is amazing, very cosy and very welcoming, you have all the facilities to make you feel at home. Even a walk down the village and admiring the surroundings can be enough to make you completely go back in time and experience life as it was once. The local shop is a walking distance so even if we ran out of bread etc the owner ordered us supplies and we only has to pick them up. the milk and eggs come from the locals and they taste out of this world. So does the cheese. When we left out camera was full, we took lots of candid pictures and scenic ones, we felt like we didn't want to go back home but at least we've got the pictures to remind us of this wonderful place. One to definitely go back to.
