About

Long time ago, the cottage was inhabited by Lisandru and Avida. Nowadays, we - their descendants - 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 :) <br /> We are living here, at the groundfloor, with our two children.

A nice and serene stay

We had a very relaxing stay at this beautifully restored old house! Cristina and Silviu are very welcoming hosts, making you feel at home throughout the whole stay. The freshly cooked food was awesome! The animals (6 cats, o dog, chickens, ducks) help with the relaxation, but prevent you to get bored. :) All in all, we would (and will!) definitely come back!

Casuta Sfintei Vineri este locul ideal pentru a scapa de zgomotul orasului, atat pentru peisajul pitoresc pe care il ofera, cat si pentru atentia oferita de gazdele mai mult decat primitoare ce asigura confortul necesar si mese bogate, cu delicatese si bauturi traditionale. Aici am trait o experienta deosebit de frumoasa, oferita de mansarda primitoare, cu rafturi de carti din varii domenii si spatioasa pentru a gazdui in serile de iarna statul la un paharel de povesti, curtea larga, unde catelul prietenilor nostrii se putea lua la intrecere cu rezidentii parosi (fie pisicutele speriate de noua prezenta, fie catelusul neinfricat al gazdelor). Cei doi copii minunati ne-au inveselit din prima clipa, Cristina ne-a asigurat festinurile de zi cu zi, iar Silviu s-a asigurat ca orice masa sa inceapa cu ciocnitul paharelor de bauturi rafinate si cu zambetul pe buze. Am avut norocul sa prindem cazare in perioada revelionului, bazandu-ne pe descrierea detaliata si review-urile bune lasate de ceilalti utilizatori de pe acest site, considerand ca este o locatie potrivita pentru doua cupluri si un catel pufos. Insa nu ma asteptam ca la finalul vacantei sa ne vina atat de greu sa mai plecam de la Silviu si Cristina...

Doream sa petrecem noaptea dintre ani intr-un loc aparte, asa ca am inchiriat mansarda din casuta Sf. Vineri pentru 3 nopti, noi fiind 2 cupluri + catel de talie medie. Ne-a lasat o impresie buna din start pentru ca acceptau animale de companie. Obiectiv, mansarda era foarte curata, spatioasa, am dormit comod, obiectele de lenjerie erau la dispozitie, nu au fost probleme cu caldura. Emotional, vacanta extraordinara pe care am trait-o e prea putin spus…Gazdele nu doar au dat spre inchiriere o parte a unei case oarecare, ne-au primit ACASA la ei, in inima lor, in istoria familiei lor, noi asa am simtit. Sunt niste oameni culti, extrem de simpatici, gospodari si saritori. Nu aveai cum sa nu fii fascinat de gramezile de carti din mansarda, fiecare cu povestea sa, sau sa nu simti emotie cand observi tabloul dedicat strabunicului pe perete. Arhitectura veche pastrata cu grija se imbina foarte bine cu ironiile contemporane ale proprietarului Silviu, ce ne aduceau mereu zambetul pe buze. Sotia lui, Cristina, este o bucatareasa desavarsita, ne-a delectat cu bucate traditionale facute in casa, de la fripturi si ciorbite la torturi, pe langa care am incercat bauturi aromate, la fel de mioritice. Ne-a placut ca Silviu venea sa ciocneasca mereu un pahar cu noi si sa ne povesteasca despre casuta sau alte atractii turistice. Iar cei doi copii ai lor au fost un deliciu, ne-am lipit ca un magnet si ne-am jucat cu totii pe fundalul cotcodacitului, macaitului si mieunatului de rigoare 🙂 Poate ca tonul recenziei a fost prea de poveste, dar noi asa ne-am simtit, ca intr-o poveste. Si cu siguranta dorim continuarea povestii data viitoare (doar “din auzite”: vara e explozie de verdeata si toamna vine cu bautura buna) 🙂

We spent a night in the attic and it was an awesome experience. Besides the accommodation itself, which is cozy and nicely decorated, the food was absolutely delicious and the hosts, Silviu and Cristina, are very warm and welcoming. There are also many interesting attractions in the area and Silviu will offer all the tips and tricks for sightseeing.

The place where you find out what you want

I know the title might sound too ostentatious for an accommodation review, but it describes what I felt when I had Silviu and his family as hosts. I'm gonna start it by saying that, indeed, you don't get out of the yard and start your mountain path or mountain bike trail. You would still need a car for that. But I can say that, on the premises of Silviu's place it can be really fun to just explore the garden and the house. And I assure you there are plenty of things worthy of anyone's interest: all sorts of animals, curious and friendly, fruits that show up where you least expected, some more amenities in the back of the garden, those daring showers and loads and loads of apples! But you can only enjoy all these if you manage to survive the 'deadly' kitten 'attacks'.
