In a Europe that is becoming increasingly homogeneous, the mountains, forests, and villages of Transylvania, Romania remain the last outpost of a more ancient era. Romanians, Saxons, and Hungarians live in a patchwork of simple farming villages, drawing water from wells, living by near-subsistence agriculture and artisanal work. Covered by thickly forested hills and mountains inhabited by bears and wolves, where shepherds live outside with their flocks, Transylvania is a truly Arcadian place. You will be guided to a hidden location and get closer spiritually to the nature and yourself.
The rest-house is a hut, offering two heated sleeping rooms on the ground floor, with altogether 16 to 18 beds, and a maximum of eight person per room on bunk-beds. In addition, there are 10 to 15 places on matrasses on the upper floor. The ground floor has a heated dining room with two long tables and wooden seats for about 20 people. You can take your bath every day in the river. You will taste crystal clear water, clean your eyes with vivid sharp colors, and enjoy a view of 360 degrees.
