  • Descripción


    We lately moved out to the beautiful countryside of Kalotaszeg in the village Magyarkapus (Capusu Mare) from Cluj - quite a big city, the capital of Transylvania. We run a lavender business from fieldwork at our plantation, through harvesting and preparing, to manufacturing an endless number of products out of lavender. This includes gastronomy, wellness, natural remedies, design and decoration as well as crazy ideas for new ways of usage. Besides lavender an increasing number of healing plants find their place on our field and on the surrounding hills.
    After falling in love with the village Capusu Mare and its surroundings, we decided to leave behind the city, so we bought a mansion with 900 sqm land. A house with a family history, a beautiful yard, vineyard, barn, orchard and the best neighbors you can ever imagine welcomed us and wait for care, restoration and love. In this process and environment we welcome your help in so many ways.
    In exchange we can offer you the spiritual richness of working at the countryside coming together with harmony, love, nature, honest people. As a bonus you can teach us something we don't know. Accommodation, very good and delicious food, the opportunity of learning romanian and hungarian languages and cuisine, as well as nice talks are basic goods at our place.

    The historical region of Kalotaszeg is almost untouched by 21st century's technical and urban development. A multicultural environment where honesty, open-heartness are traditionally kept even nowadays, Friendly, welcoming villagers interact with you with kindness and stability. You can learn here the oldest practices in agriculture, housekeeping and traditional way of living, most of all the basics of true and honest life values. Also the dialect is kept alive, as well as traditional costumes. The surrounding mountains hide beautiful hiking trails, woods full of mushrooms, brooks and small wild animals.

    I'm so much surprised of the high number of those youth who face allergic problems and who are vegan, it's something completely new for me, here we don't have so many allergic people as well as only a few of us are vegan, and even those are not that strict - as far as I know. So I'm really open to this subject to see how can you manage and what are the solutions. Probably the food for those of you with allergies will be prepared and treated by yourself, as I have no experience in this and of course none of us wants to create problems. Thank you.
