We're living in Transylvania in a beautiful village near Cluj. We're building Organic houses the traditional way like people did hundreds of years ago. We use wood and straw walls with organic plaster completely handmade.
The houses are high quality constructed and for anyone interested in this kind of construction an opportunity to learn more about this.
The area is stunning and a blessing for nature lovers. Long walks, mountain biking, horse trails (on our own horses) or off road trips are a must. A fishing lake is nearby. The weather in summer is excellent for all of this. There are a lot of cultural / historical places to visit in a close distance like; the old city center, churches, museums, botanical garden, salt mines/lakes etc. Also we have the old village museum where you can see houses from the long past.
The swimmingpool is on 5 min. walking distance.
For the ones who like to party in the free time, Cluj is about 20 minutes away and with 100.000 students from all over the world and hundreds of bars and clubs, having a good nightlife is no problem. (transport available and the taxi is cheap)
We like good, honest food; a nice breakfast and fresh warm lunch/dinner will be prepared for you everyday, served in our garden with fireplace or inside the house. You will be staying in a small house with heathing together with 4 other persons
The airport is on a 25 minutes distance. You'll find the bus and railway station downtown Cluj.
