    Good Host
  • Description


    We are a couple and a 16-year-old girl and we settled in the old and vast forests of the Poiana Rusca Mountains, Hunedoara. The property with forests and pastures has 30 hectares. There are no bears and wolves here, the deciduous forest is home to deer and foxes. Wild boars do not bother us, they live in the depths of the forests. We are passionate about agriculture and organic construction as well as harvesting wild plants and mushrooms. We have very pure and clean springs. We produce soaps, creams, tinctures, bitters and teas. We are restoring a 100-year-old house and we have a hempcrete house in the project.The ecological hempcrete house is under construction and we can share the experience with the volunteers. We have electricity and internet signal. The property is intimate, with vast forests and hidden and sunny meadows and is isolated by neighbors who are over 2 km from us, the village has only a few houses at distances of over 1-2 km. The landscape is dreamy and the peace is perfect. We focus on sustainability, we take balanced from the forest resources for canned food for the winter. Art has an important role in our lives, modeling in clay, painting being some of our soul activities. Accommodation: 3 places in the 100-year-old house, in a restored room, attic with hay and countless tent places in the 30 hectares.

    Suntem un cuplu si o fetita de 16 ani si ne-am stabilit in padurile batrane si vaste ale Muntilor Poiana Rusca, Hunedoara. Proprietatea cu paduri si pasuni are 30 hectare. Nu sunt ursi si lupi aici, padurele de foioase adapostesc caprioare si vulpi. Mistretii nu ne deranjeaza , ei trăind in adancul pădurilor. Suntem pasionați de agricultura si construcții ecologice precum si de recoltarea de plante salbatice si ciuperci. Avem apa deosebit de pura si curata. Producem sapunuri, creme, tincturi, bitter si ceaiuri. Restauram o casuta veche de 100 ani si avem in proiect o casuță de hempcrete.
    Avem electricitate si semnal de internet. Proprietatea este intima, cu paduri intinse si poienite ascunse si însorite si este izolata de vecini care sunt la peste 2 km de noi, satul are doar câteva case la distante de peste 1-2 km. Peisajul este de vis iar liniștea este desavarsita.
    Ne concentram pe sustenabilitate, luam echilibrat din resursele pădurii pt alimente conservate pentru iarnă.
    Arta are un rol important in viata noastra, modelajul in lut, pictura fiind unele din activitatile noastre de suflet.
    Cazarea: 3 locuri in casa de 100 ani, intr-o camera restaurata, pod cu fan si nenumarate locuri de cort in cele 30 de hectare.
