We are a romanian-german couple (32 and 33 years old), Raluca, who is a restaurator for cultural heritage and a traditional medicine practitioner, and Gabriel who is a geograph. We bought a Farmstay in Nima Raciului, Mures County with the purpose of creating a cultural and educational center.
Our Homestay is a place where pleople can find a connection with the nature and with the rural life, where they can learn about susteinable life, traditional medicine and cultural heritage.
Our main point in this project is to restore the former image of our homestay and work with our neighbours for a better and ecological lifestyle.
During the summer we organize seminars and workshops for different subjects.
