  • Description


    Hi there :)
    I am Mihaela (40), owner of a beautiful 5,000 sqm country house in Movilita village, in Dobrogea, on the Black Sea coast. I have been living abroad with my family for 12 years, in Dubai, Italy, Germany, and recently returned back home. During our time abroad, our house and large garden haven't been properly attended and now need some good effort to reinstate their former beauty. I thank you for your interest in our place and welcome you discover our story and rich Dobrogea.

Our house is 10-15 min drive to the beach. 7 min drive to Techirghiol, the famous mud baths. As mentioned above, lots of historical and cultural sites.

Floating reed islands, sand dunes and waterways offer shelter to over 300 species of birds, countless fish and 1,150 species of plants.
