Created with Sketch. Soveja, Romania View on map



Rural chic mountain getaway in the Carpathians.

Exploring Romanian countryside.

Inspired by the world travels and active lifestyle of the hosts, Casa Thymus is a study in contrasts. The peaceful destination’s unique, luxurious blend of traditional style and modern design transports guests far beyond the routine of ordinary life, making every stay one to remember.

Part countryside auberge, part modern chic villa, the intimate Casa Thymus is appointed with exceptional traditional wood and stone solutions, while still conveys the easy charm of a relaxed wayside getaway. Old-world materials like hand-hewn beams, rammed-earth walls and stones carved by local craftsmen are paired with designer furniture and appliances. Villas are designed to breathe and bring inside the ozone-richest air in Europe, the pride of Soveja region.

Casa Thymus’ style comes to life as an uncommonly comfortable, modern mix. Those dramatic contrasts are evident in the experiences and excursions available to Casa Thymus’ guests, too. The property has not only charmed travelers looking for a quiet escape, it is also a basecamp for those seeking out a variety of exhilarating adventures. Horseback riding, fast-paced mountain fishing parties, themed hikes to picking herbs, mushrooms, berries, bitter cherries abound in every direction.

The multi-storey library leads travelers of all ages and in the world of books, along with a cup of thyme tea, the symbol of our house.
