About this listing
In the middle of Romania, at the end of the road and of modern civilization, you'll find our house: Șleaul Mândrului - "The Saddle of the Outlaw".
A secret heaven in the Carpathian Mountains, above the world.
Our house has 10 double rooms, offering our guests all the warmth and comfort to make them feel at home.
We decorated the house with soul and with great care. The furniture is made of wood by a local craftsman, and hand painted by a friend. The carpets are hand woven, and the lamps are manually painted in Italy.
The food is almost completely organic, and all prepared by ourselves.
The house is smoking-free, and very children-friendly.
We have no TV. This means we have time to look at each other, speak to each other, do things together, watch the fireplace, play guitar, read books... clear our minds of all the rubbish.
The air is pure, and the only sound you hear is the wind.
Very often in the house there's a special magic mood, and on these special moments I'm selecting for my guests discrete quality music.
Apart from their private room, our guests will have access to the living room where they will enjoy the food I personally cook for them. And our home-made wine.
Interaction with guests
I am Richard. I graduated law and worked as a sales director in logistics... until the day I came here. That day changed my life forever. I quit everything and became simply a host. Your host.
Our house would be nothing without my wife Aura. She is the heart and soul of the place. She decorated the rooms, she chooses the flowers, she gives the final magic touch to the food I'm cooking for you.
We like good music in general, and good people in particular.
Other things to note
When we first came to this place, both me and my wife remained breathless. The beauty was beyond words.
In that moment we knew what we had to do. We sold everything, quit the city and moved here with our children. Here we built our new home.
Now we'd like to share with you our secret heaven from above Romania.
Smoking is not allowed inside the house.
