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.
