Casuta cu Alune (The Hazelnut Cottage) is a cozy little cabin, built with love, patience, and respect for it’s beautiful natural surroundings. We gathered in harmony traditions from our ancestors, we joined together the old and the new, and added just enough modern amenities so you would have a perfectly confortable vacantion.

The wood-work and the simple tranquility of the roumanian mountain cottage lives in harmony under the same roof with the vibrant and gourmelicious style of the hungarian households from the Trascau village. Casuta cu Alune is a love story, made of edelweiss and chilly pepers! The cozy table-seat near the stove, the old, painted furniture, the happy, enflourished dishes, thay all conspire to take you back to your childhood, when you stormed the kitchen in search of grandma’s delicious cookies.

Who doesn’t miss that? To feel completely free, to lose track of time, and of all the “must do” of our modern lives! Free to elope on an adventure anytime, free to explore, free to walk barefoot in the grass! Free to spend an entire lazy day reading under the chery tree, if that’s what you wish, with a cup of coffe by your side! In this whild place we have regained the energy of our happiest moments, the playfulness of the summer days, and the serenity of mind, beneth the shiny stars of the night sky. And our desire is to share all that with you!


Cozy and welcoming, Casuta cu Alune is the perfect get-away for a vacation in the heart of nature. If you are yearning for the silence of the forest, the freshness of the air or the sound of the valey, you will find it here. And if you are eager to explore the mountain tracks in search of whild animals and plants, you’ll have the chance to admire plenty protected species, including the rare edelweiss flower.

Hidden at the crossroads of two spectacular protected areas, Cheile Manastirii and Cheile Râmetului, Casuta cu Alune is the perfect starting point for a surprising adventure, generously reworded with the fantastic views of the majestic clifs surrounding our valley like some protective giants.

This is a place famous for it’s healing energy, benefiting both your body and your soul. The monastic tradition of the Valley wich goes back more than 800 years is still well kept by the nuns and flourishes in the Râmet Monastery, very sugestively named the “Heaven’s Garden of the Apuseni Mountains”.

“Cheile Manastirii are like a portal to the Trascau Mountains. Starting from there, is no exageration to say that you entered the Land of Peaks. A land that may seem at the end of the world, but is actualy closer than you think.”


Situated within a confortable distance of only 38 km from Alba Iulia and 100 km from Cluj Napoca, Valea Manastirii is an ideal weekend get-away destination for families travelling with small children. The asphalt road ends 500m from our property, soon after you drive past the Monastery, and continues with a paved road, suitable for bicycle trips as well.

The Cabin space

When you see the cabin’s high brick chimney, you know you have reached your destination. Casuta cu Alune welcomes you in a big, green garden suitable for childrens games.

The fully equiped kitchen and the barbeque patio invite you to cook some delicious meals, and since the closest restaurant is 20 km away, it’s best to have some recepies prepared! Both bedrooms are on the first floor. The smaller one has two single beds, and it’s especialy designed for children. The main bedroom has one double bed and one single bed, as well as a TV, with USB media player, a romantic stove for winter nights, and a private bathroom equiped with shower. If you need an extra bedroom, the livingroom downstairs offers a double, extensible couch, a TV (with USB media player), its own wardrobe closet and a private batroom with a bathtub. And if you’re a bit nostalgic, you can even take a nap on the cozy banch-bed near the wood stove, just like in a childhood fairytale!  Casuta cu Alune welcomes you to feel just so!

5.0 "Vacanta"

Am poposit la Casuta cu Alune in perioada 13-17 Decembrie . "Visul" a inceput inca de pe drumul ce duce spre casuta, in momentul in care am fost intampinati de un grup de 6 caprioare ce se intoarceau de la raul ce curge in zona. Ajunsi la cabana doamna Cristina , o gazda exceptionala, ne-a familiarizat cu locul oferindu-ne toate informatiile necesare. Focul din soba , placintele, si bauturile traditionale, au facut ca primirea sa fie inedita. Decorul casutei si imprejurimile, te fac pur si simplu sa pierzi notiunea timpului. O vacanta superba intr-o atmsofera de poveste. Vom reveni cu siguranta. Va multumim !

5.0 "Casuta de vis"

Dupa sejurul extraordinar petrecut la Casuta cu alune in luna iulie am planificat o noua vacanta in octombrie. A fost o vacanta foarte reusita, am fost intampinati cu multa caldura iar peisajul de toamna a fost spectaculos. Focul din semineu, linistea, frumusetea cabanei, culorile toamnei si drumetiile din zona te indeamna la relaxare totala. In casuta domnesc bunul gust si curatenia desavarsita iar dotarile sunt la superlativ !!! Cristina este o gazda extraordinara, o persoana extrem de calda si pozitiva. Au facut parte din pachetul de bun venit placinta gustoasa, bauturile fine, fructe culese din curte si focul la semineu, senzationala atmosfera, asta da intampinare. Multumim Cristina pentru aceasta noua experienta minunata, vom reveni. Crina si Cristian

5.0 "De poveste ..."

Am petrecut cateva zile minunate in acest loc de poveste . Pana si numele "Casuta cu alune" te duce cu gandul la un loc primitor, jucaus si prietenos. Ei bine, e mai mult de atat . Atentia deosebita pentru detalii ne-a impresionat , foarte drăgălașă și extrem de primitoare. Gazda noastră, Cristina ne-a așteptat cu prăjitură de casă și limonadă rece , mult apreciată după un drum lung. Fetita mea a fost asa de incantata incat m-a pus sa promit ca ne vom reintoarce , si asa vom si face ;)

5.0 "just great"

I spent amazing 9 days with the family there. The cabin is designed, decorated and arranged in "Fixer Upper" style with a lot of love for detail! Having so many trails around, is gaves you in addition the chance to explore the beauty of the carpathian mountains. No many cabins offers you the full range of kitchen machines and ustensile necessary for cocking from an salad till to a traditional cocking over the fire pot. If very hot you relax of the terrace and enjoy a good romanian red vine with a cheese plate! Highly recommend that location!

La Casuta cu Alune ne-am redescoperit copilaria. Locatia este ca din basme, intr-o vale verde si bogata, cu susurul paraului ca muzica de fundal, si cu cheile marete in stanga si in dreapta casutei. In mijlocul acestui cadru natural, grandios si confortabil in acelasi timp, un cuplu calduros si primitor au creat o casuta asa ca ei: calduroasa, primitoare, cocheta, cu multe detalii deosebite si atent gandite, care te imbie sa petreci timp in fiecare coltisor. E o combinatie echilibrata intre modern si rustic, romantic si jucaus, care iti ofera atat de multe. Ne-am simtit ca la casa bunicii, si ca intr-un film de aventura in acelasi timp. In incinta te poti relaxa citind, jucand badminton, carti, cu mingea, poti face un gratar langa foisorul spatios si colorat, iar dincolo de poarta te asteapta trasee prin chei, vai, dealuri, dupa cum doresti sa te aventurezi. Mai venim!
