    I am renovating my grandparents house in a small village in Transylvania about 30 km from Sibiu (Hermanstadt) the former 2007 European Capital of Culture to be seted up as a GuestHouse. We need help with the renovation work, marketing and promoting the services through a website and through internet marketing, entertaining and guiding the tourists, etc.
