Hello everyone, I am Cristian and, together with my family, are running a pension family hotel business in the beautiful rural Maramures. We are in total 5 friendly and open people: 2 parents and 2 little sisters and myself.
We constructed the guesthouse back in 2011 and we recently opened two indoor swimming pools and we hope we will open also one outside this summer of 2016 (by the way, you can use them in your free time :) ). Additionally we are contemplating the idea of opening a bike hostel nearby. We are located in a very beautiful place, in the heard of rural Maramures, a region with idyllic landscapes and warm and kind people. Here everyone can easily make friends and experience the beauty of living in the rural area. I traveled quite a lot by still, after seeing many beautiful places, Maramures remains one of my favorite places on Earth. I might be a bit biased here, as is the place where I grew up:P, but I am sure, as most of our tourists say, that you will love this peaceful area that emanates freedom and happiness.

Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We have an amazing place and region over here and we want to transform it in a magical place.
Volunteers can help us in many ways, from help with cleaning and general maintenance to coming with innovative ideas on how to give to tourists a better experience in Maramures and generally on marketing. We like positive people that are up to creating beautiful things and bring happiness in the life of every person they meet on their path. Artists of all kinds are more than welcome as we could organize thematic evening and art works.
Besides trying to help out tourist have a better experience in our accommodation facility, we would like also to have a positive impact for all the tourists in the region and to locals. Therefore, we would like to develop together with our volunteers an NGO to help develop the region through various projects like: developing improving hiking trails, offering tours on the beautiful hills around the region, or by developing sports and social clubs for the locals.
We can offer accommodation in our pension, a four star pension. Depending on the period, there could be a private room or a room with 2-3 beds. There is also the possibility to be accommodated in a private house. All the necessary conditions will be met so you can have a comfortable and pleasant stay in Maramures.
Around the pension there are many things that can be done. We are finishing now the construction of an indoor swimming pool that our volunteers could use depending on the availability. We also have a table tennis if you want to challenge someone for a match :). Nearby, there is a sports camp where they can play tennis, soccer, basketball etc. For the outdoor activities we can also provide you with bicycles to explore the town and the city nearby.
In the evenings we can watch movies, have some nice talks, or play guitar (need improve my playing skills or pass it to you :) ) and sing and spend some peaceful and lovely evenings.
You can also use your time here to visit visit visit, lots of visits and beautiful things you can see. From the UNESCO protected wooden churches, to the Merry Cemetery, from the Village Museum to local and very picturesque towns, from the Memorial of Victims of Communism to the memorial house of Elie Weisel (Nobel Prize winner for Peace).
Moreover, you can immerge yourself in the beautiful world of customs, traditions, food, clothes, dances and music that Maramures has. The region has a rich and beautiful cultural heritage which we would be very happy to share it and show it to you.
Maramures is an unspoiled placed that brings you peace and happiness.
