  • Description


    Greetings traveler,

    my name is Marius , I am living with my wife and beautiful two children in the hearth of nature .More than two years ago we began the search for a house in nature to make it our home. After three months of searching we found a quiet place with beautiful suroundings in a small village in Apuseni Mountains, Tranilvania, Romania.

    We spend our working time in our garden and restoring our old house. We decided to practice slow living so we are taking life step by step and experiences as they come.
    That's why we spend most of our time together , creating activities for our kids, enjoying long walks trough the forest, foraging. Sesonal we gather berries , mushrooms, plants and flowers.
    We love music, dance (my wife is a professional dancer) and bonfires.

    Our neighbours are kind locals, most of them spending their time raising animals, so we have localy sourced meat, eggs and dairy products.

    We are looking forward to meet new people and exchange experiences because this makes life beautiful and worth living.
