    The property is situated in a natural park of 1.5 hectares , near the forest.
    The nearest town Baia-Mare, the county capital, is only 15 km away with supermarkets, shops, restaurants, clubs, ….
    On the property we have a 6 bedrooms, self catering guesthouse , that we use to rent to tourists, mainly groups of friends or families.
    There are also terraces, outdoor swimming pool, sports ground, barbecue place and a mineral water spring.
    Recently we started in the same location, another accommodation facility as a hostel, which is opened from 15 -th April to 1-st October.
    We look for workaway-ers traveling as a couple,family, or 2-3 individuals, for periods of 2- 4 weeks or even more.
