TRANSYLVANIA... 'the land beyond the mountains', that's what it means literally, but once you get to know it, it is so much more than a land. Even prince Charleshas been captured by the Transylavian beauty and owns several properties in the area. He described Transylvania ' the sheer beauty of the landscape, the unspoilt nature, the villages, the churches, the whole extraordinary atmosphere of summer, which is timeless. And it is very rare nowadays' ( HRH Prince Charles, on PRO TV Romania).

You must have all heard at some point in time something about Transylvania. It would have been to do with Dracula, the mountains, the strong brandy called 'palinka', old horses pulling a cart and so on.

If you've read Bram stoker's Dracula, which was written two centuries ago and you visit Transylvania now, you can still find places that stood still through time. This does not mean in any way that you will not find all the mod-cons of the 21st century, as Cluj is a very well developed, cosmopolitan city, with 2 shopping centres, many supermarkets, night clubs and restaurants and beautiful fresh produce markets.

The cottages we have are located in a quiet cul de sac and they are easily accessible from the main road.

They are located just outside the village of Somesu Rece, not far from 3 lakes, greatly located for fishing, speed boat, swimming.

The centre piece of the complex is the barbecue area with the log fire and the log fired pot, surrounded by the outside dining areas and a summer time kitchen.

The cottages are well stocked for winter too, with 4 wood burner ceramic stoves and plenty chopped wood.

The location is popular in summer and winter alike due to the ski resorts not too far away.

We offer excursions in the area, horse riding, fishing trips, speed boat trips, off road trips with Jeep Wrangler and quad bike and many other activities available when in season such as berry picking, porcine and chanterreles mushroom picking.

We have a local family offering to cook for you while you are there, to look after the fires in winter and to provide guided trips.

We offer complementary airport pick-up for all guests arriving at Cluj Napoca Airport.

The Transylvania region

'The land beyond the mountains' is set in idyllic settings, surrounded by deep forests and lakes. This is the land visited by Bram Stoker in his acclaimed book Dracula and Cluj, the nearest city is where he passed through in his trip to the Borgo Pass. We follow his footsteps in our Eco friendly holidays which also include: trips with the speed boat, off road excursions with Jeep Wrangler, picking mushrooms and berries,go fishing, go skiing in winter.

The climate is continental temperate, with hot summers and cold winters. Temperatures in summer average 25 to 35 degrees Celsius, in winter -5 to -15 degrees Celsius.

The Cluj / Somesu Rece Valley area

Cluj is the largest city in Transylvania. Having been the capital of the Austrian-Hungarian empire, it hosts a culture which has been described by many as ' where the East meets the West'. Gothic with bysantine architecture, Orthodox and Catholic churches, art museums, opera and theatres, plus a very cosmopolitan air!

The Somesu rece valley is set in the mountains, 15 km from Cluj, between deep lakes and forests. The vegetation is predominantly oak and conifer trees, the forest housing some good resources of wild berries and chanterrelles mushrooms, abundant in summer. The lakes are great for fishing and water sports, and in winter, there are 2 ski resorts nearby.

Each cottage is equipped with bathrooms, fully furnished, and the largest has a fully equipped kitchen. Also, there is an outside cooking area with barbecue and stone oven.

Cottages are offered on self catering and full board basis. Suitable for families with children or couples looking for peaceful surrounding, we offer eco friendly trips with accommodation and full board or self catering.

Notes

  • Please kindly enquire for availability first as we are advertising on several internet sites and we don't want to disappoint you by double booking.
    The winter rates are inclusive of all fuel ( in this case wood) which can be very expensive, hence our prices reflect this.
    The prices are per cottages ( which are being rented out together) as they share the same yard, regardless of the number of guests involved.
    The prices are based on an occupancy of maximum 11 people.
    Please enquire with us if your party is over 11 in number as we can easily accommodate at neighbouring cottages the extra numbers( extra payment may be necessary).

Notes:
During the summer months the kitchen is moved outside, around the barbecue area, cooker with gas bottle, tables, fridge. We do this so our guests can spend quality time outside, without having to run back in the inside kitchen all the time. However, the inside kitchen is fully usable. We have extensive seating and dining facilities outside, by the barbecue area and on the terraces (under cover). The barbecue is brick built traditional style, and houses a wood oven as well. Apart from this, we have next to the barbecue a pot wood burner, where you can cook larger meals on wood fire. Gas and gas bottle are also available, together with an electric oven, microwave, toaster and kettle. All cooking utensils and crockery is available. Glasses and mugs available. The inside kitchen houses a wood stove where you can cook and which heats the house as well, and this is great in winter as it makes the centrepiece of the kitchen and dining area.
