Come experience a life close to nature, enjoy a wonderful view and great food, all at a mountain village. We welcome people who are interested in seeing and experiencing a different lifestyle, with more nature, more healthy food, less stress and more simplicity. Travelers who would like to see how we grow our food, how we use the herbs in the surroundings, and how we try to integrate sustainability in both our renovation methods as well as our community.
At our place you can enjoy nature and be close to the Apuseni Natural Park. There are caves, forests, a lake and a waterfall close by. We offer a rustic experience with a beautiful view. Our place is unique because it offers a glimpse into a more simple, slow, natural lifestyle with beautiful sunrises and quiet evenings. It is ideal if you want to get away from the rush of city life.
The rustic and traditional houses are equipped with the following amenities: an outdoor hot water shower and an outdoor ecological compost toilet.
We offer you an experience to stay in a room renovated using natural materials, with wood, clay and a cozy atmosphere. The garden room, which you can enjoy during your stay, is right next to the garden. You can relax and learn about what we grow here if you are interested in plants and growing your own food.
You will have access to the common living areas such as the main cabin, also available are our collection of books to sink into about nature, natural living, ecology and sustainability. Available to inspiring all musicians we have a small collection of instruments. Quite stargazing campfires can be arranged as well as a hammock among cherry blossoms.
We have an outdoor shower surrounded by lilacs and an outdoor compost toilet. Guests have no access to the kitchen.
Interaction with guests
We are always present on the property, and are happy to meet people and share some stories as well as respect the sanctuary of our guest's privacy.
Since we have both lived and still enjoy life in the city as well, we can tell you the benefits and the difficulties of striving towards a life where nature and ecology are a priority. You’re welcome to enjoy our home cooked organic meals, and even learn how to prepare them.
Other things to note
We can offer three home cooked organic meals. Since we only have a small kitchen, there is no cooking opportunity. We also find it very important to support the local rural community and consume organic food and no processed foods at the farm. Since we live in a communal way, you are welcome to try our homecooked meals and slow food.
Our place is designed for tranquility, so you may get away from the city life and enjoy nature. We can offer you an experience that will be unique, a chance to see how a traditional mountain village is today in Transylvania, and how we live our daily lives in a secluded village at the border of the National Park. We are not interested in tourism, instead we would like to offer an experience that you cannot find elsewhere.

Common courtesy towards nature and other guests and residents, common areas have to be kept clean and free of personal items. Please respect the silence of nature: no loud music.
