Welcome to Shanti

Why accommodating at Shanti guesthouse? Why choose Shanti if you plan to visit the Apuseni mountains? Shanti gives you three reasons or more. Firstly, it is because the guesthouse isn’t located near the main road so you won’t see the cars passing from your window. It is one kilometer away from the national road, in the middle of nature, in a 4 ha property of orchards and hayfields. And what sort of nature! You could say, luxuriant! And Shanti always has flowers in their garden!

It all starts in early spring with snowdrops, bluebells, daffodils, tulips (a while ago a biologist who stopped by was saying to them "Not even in Cluj, where it’s warmer, they didn’t bloom. It means that they like it here”. Apple blossoms, cherry blossoms, lilacs, jasmine, elder, lilies, and a hedge with yellow flowers that last all summer long, till late autumn when the frost arrives.

More than that, there is an exotic tropical plant's collection which delights tourist not only view but the heavenly smell. Besides that, they sometimes are visited by small animals in the forest. And also, every morning you can see the squirrels that live in our yard going to the well to drink and then climbing in the trees for apples and walnuts. Another reason is that we offer you a place for sunbathing and it’s well known that the mountain tan lasts longer.
