You will find hospitality in our guest house, and a slice of authentic countryside life outside.
We visit and feed animals in their natural environment...
This activity opens new perspectives into the Romanian village life, where everything is simple and yet, full of meaning. The villagers are eager to tell you about their animals, how they take care of them and how we should respect them. Each animal brings daily support to every day’s agricultural work. They represent a source of food and at the same time, a source of energy because they are an essential element for the village life. In this way, feeding the animals signifies a pure moment, full of love and connection.
Let’s all gather and make a bonfire! But first, we need a plan, which goes like this: we are going to Breb, hiking around to find some wood and look for the perfect spot for the bonfire. Afterwards, the ones who have got the skills, will light and take care of the fire, while the other members of our team will prepare the food. P.S. The villagers told us a little secret: the food tastes much better when we eat together! Also, don’t forget: we have some delicious vegetarian dishes!
Are you in for this adventure?
We make bonfires, cook and eat together with our hands...
We clean the river bank and enjoy it...
Our health is influenced by how well preserved the environment is. While we dedicate some time to clean the river, in return, the river will offer us fresh mountain water. In this way, we improve our water footprint. In the end, we will understand the difference a clean and healthy nature makes, by burning all the waste we have collected from the river.
Just pick any seed you like and plant it! Such a small gesture is a symbol of love and care for the nature. Also, the activity itself is relaxing and stress-relieving.
We plant different plants – in the warm season – and bring them to life...
We milk the mild cows...
Through this activity we guarantee you a pure positive connection. Still, why is this activity so special? Because it is a simple and truly meaningful moment to connect with an animal and also because you can observe the results of your work immediately. Also, the ones who milk the cows are going home with a bottle of fresh milk!

On your request we can organize a competition and if nobody quits for one hour, they will get a tasty treat on the house.
Our cooks are local villagers, who, as the traditions says, wouldn’t get married, if they didn’t know how to make a delicious bread. During the whole process, they will guide you and teach you some cooking and baking secrets. Nevertheless, at the end of this experience you will learn to understand the slow food concept and the importance of choosing natural ingredients.
We knead the dough, and you get the bread, as well as the original recipe...
We make the pound cake...
Likewise to the previous activity, the process of making the pound cake, will be guided by our cooks.
