  • Description


    Hi, I am Adelina, I am 33 years old, Social Worker. I live in this house together with my husband who is a teacher,a cat and a dog. We are both passionate about traveling, gardening, construction,different cultures and new people.
    We are spontaneous, positive and honest people.
    Our project started 7 years ago when we bought this house in a village called Târnova(the house is outside the village, it was used as a stable for animals).During this time we tried to renovate it using more and more recycled materials.When we understand that we are becoming more and more in love with this wonderful place,we decided to start a new life and move permanently to the house on the hill.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Locations near Târnova; the city of Resita , the ski resort at Semenic, Lake Secu, Lake Gozna, the Trei Ape Lake (Three Rivers Lake), Gărâna, Brebu, and Văliug. The Secu Lake - is the nearest lake(20 minutes walk). It is also the town's ( Resita) main source of drinking water. The surroundings of the lake offer incredible sites especially because the area is not yet polluted by massive touristic/commercial exploitation.
    Semenic - Mount Semenic, is located at approx 45 km. It's height of approx 1000m does not impress with the abundance of cliffs and peaks that one with expect to see on a mountain; it is however a resort with beautiful mountain surroundings, clean air, beginners schi slopes in the winter time, and a project for a professional schi slope to be built in the near future.
    The crisp, fresh mountain air is a major attraction during the summer months when the towns nearby are experiencing high temperatures that reach over 40C.
    Garana (Wolfsberg) - a village with an interesting folklore and beautiful mountain landscape.
    Cheile Carasului - The Semenic National Park contains the following reservations: Cheile Carasului, Cheile Nerei, Cheile Garlistei, the ground with the springs of the river Caras.
    A wonderful and mysterious place is the village Lindelfeld known as the abandoned village,not far from our house it can be visited on foot.
    Whether you want to visit as many places or want to stay in one place I assure you that it will be a wonderful experience.
