Cosy attic in traditional house made of wood and earth, with garden, delightfully placed near the edge the forest, in the National Natural Reserve of Vâlsan River

Remote, but a great location of access to the main roads to/from BUCHAREST & TRANSYLVANIA: TRANSFĂGĂRĂȘAN, SIBIU, BRAN, BRAȘOV (please see below for details)

Originally, it belonged to my grand-grandparents; we renovated in 2016, obstinately keeping everything we could in the wonderful original state.

Summer 2020 update: A small and cosy office for online work / videocalls / Zoom conferences etc. is available in the Attic. Very fast internet connection via optic fiber.

# Before the attic looked like this, it was just a place where my great-grandparents used to smoke meat and sausages and throw whatever they didn't need daily. We tried to get the best out of it, imagining a cosy and friendly place to enjoy, bathed in light, with direct view to the sky and to the nearby forest. #


Our house is located on a (very :) ) secondary road in the village, in a splendid and picturesque neighbourhood. The house is surrounded by our 4500 square meters (1.1 acres) land - orchard, garden, yard, backyard and pasture. And it’s also the heart of a small 1 acre (cca. 5000 sq. meters) homestead – inhabited by lambs, ducks, chicken and turkeys (not to mention the tender cats and the big & mild shepherd dog).

Long time ago, the cottage was inhabited by Lisandru and Avida. Nowadays, we – Cristina and Silviu (Lisandru’s great-grandson) take care of it. We are both freelancers – Cristina is an economist, and Silviu – a non-verbal theatre perfomer and M.A. in anthropology. After 12 years of living in Bucharest or wandering outside the country, we’ve had enough of noise, traffic jams and pollution, we got back to the roots and began working here: we renovated our nice and cosy cottage, we started gardening, we planted trees and raspberries, we made jams, jellies and liquors, we started growing poultry and lambs… and we never stopped since then :)

We are living here all year long, at the ground floor, with our 5 & 2 years old children.

You'll fall in love (we did also!) with the simple serenity of the entire place, with the wild birds' concerts in the morning, with the tender sunsets with a glass of local wine in the gazebo or on the picnic blanket in the garden, with the feeling of time slowly passing by in harmony. Seldom you'll see more (and sometimes even less :) ) than a car per day crawling along our narrow village road.

The house was raised in the 1930's by the builders' guild my great-grandpa was belonging to. After they died, in the 1990's, the house was not inhabited anymore until we started face-lifting it, in 2016. We tried renovating it respecting the wonderful cosy touch of the original house, using as many as traditional materials and techniques as we could, from wooden shingles roof, hand-made traditional-patterned ceramic tiles, to natural plasters and recycled very old alder wood, and keeping all the beautiful objects our great-grandparents had and reuse them and enjoy them. However, we equipped the house with all amenities necessary: fully equipped kitchen, washing machine, Wi-Fi etc.

At the floor level, there are two bedrooms, one bathroom, the kitchen and also the technical room.

Upstairs, accessed through a separate entrance, for our guests - there's a bedroom (called "The Night Sky Room" because of the large roof window through you can see the marvelous sky - no light pollution here, all stars and constellations available:), another bathroom (which may be shared if other guests book the other space upstairs) - and a generous L-shaped open-space which can be used as a big living room and, by night, as a space for sleep (the extensible sofa is placed in a niche providing privacy). Also, my tiny office for no-distraction computer work is available upstairs. :)

Close to the house there is a gazebo wrapped up in ivy, elderberry and grape vine (the place for having breakfast and dinner) the vegetable garden, the greenhouse and the orchard. The orchard is a nice place to take a stroll and drink a good coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening. There are old apple trees and a lot of young trees we planted ourselves – cherry & sour cherry, plums & quinces & sea buckthorn, apples & pears. Also raspberries and currants. Also few kinds of mint and roses. And two old walnut trees. And a trampoline for energetic kids. And from time to time a hen or a duck that break free from the poultry yard :)

On the sides of the orchard there are the poultry yards – where chicken, ducks and turkeys live. In the backyard, close to the forest, there is the sheep pen (they’ll be happy to be fed by hand), another vegetable garden and some rows of young raspberries and blackberries.

There are three different entrances in the house.

Due to constraints imposed by adhering to the original architecture both bathrooms are a bit smaller than than those generally found in cities but they are spotlessly clean, well-functioning and contain all the essentials.

Oh, and under the house, there is a stone cellar where we secrete all the home-made delights :)

The house is surrounded by the National Natural Reserve of Vâlsan River, protecting more than 300 rare flower and animal species, including the world's oldest fossil-fish alive, 65 million years old, they say: "asprete" (Romanichtys Valsanicola)!

The entire region is filled with beautiful old churches and monasteries, starting with the one in the village (built 1838), Brădet (14th century), Corbii de Piatră (ancient, carved in rock sacred place), Robaia, Aninoasa, Nămăești.

For hikers & bikers: going north, you can either get to Vidraru Dam (alternative route), or start climbing to Moldoveanu Peak (2544 meters, the highest peak in Romanian Carpathian mountains). Or you can just pick up any road you like and start exploring. Beauty is everywhere here.

If interested in a ... town-break, you can easily access historical town of Curtea de Argeș with its stunning Monastery (former capital city of Old Wallachia, 13th century) - 12 km away, or enjoy the breathtaking architecture of Câmpulung (oldest city in Wallachia, inhabited since bronze age - year 1600 B.C!) - 33 km away.

Or you can soak yourself in Vâlsan river nearby :)

Whatever you prefer, we'll be glad to be your guides!

Long story short, I'm an independent artist. When I don't work in Bucharest, I keep a small old house & tiny farm in the woody hills of Argeș county, 150 km away from Bucharest, along with my family. I'm passionate about the simple old things. That's why you'll find so many at my places, inherited from my ancestors or even bought from all over the country. I'm passionate about real, organic, tasty, traditional and healthy food. We grow some of it :) I'm passionate about reading books. Paper books, not e-books (although I sometimes need to). That's why I filled the entire house with them and hope that I'll read them all at least until I get in my 70s :) Oh, yes, along with my beloved wife, we grow our two kids and we all happily live outside the city.
