For accommodation your options include a boyar’s house, in the typical Oltenia region style, a log cabin, very much alike the Canadian ones, or even an ultra-modern  hotel. They offer double rooms, standard apartments or presidential suites and even large capacity properties that can be rented entirely, able to accommode groups of up to 75 people.

For groups larger than 6 pers and also for additional info, please use the inquiry formular in order to adress directly to host.

There is also a restaurant with the not so easy mission of providing you with yet another memorable experience at Forest Retreat & Spa. The à la carte menu, inspired by international cuisines, offers sophisticated dishes to satisfy the most demanding tastes.

Our main attraction however is the 2,500 sqm Spa center​​. The solid stone and wood interior design interweaves inviting tone colours , creating a harmonious ambience to help you restore the comfort you have long dreamed of.

The seasonal outdoor pool, the indoor pool, the emotional showers, the wet and the Finnish sauna, but also the salt spa, are only a few of the services offered by Forest Retreat & Spa so that guests can enjoy their long-awaited holiday in our historically rich Oltenia region.

We also provide you with an entire leisure center as a truly healthy lifestyle cannot go without sport. Slag tennis courts, mini football pitches with artificial grass, volleyball or basketball courts, equipped with night lighting installations, will offer you a new means of acquiring your well-being and balancing your body physically, emotionally as well as socially.

Forest Retreat & Spa awaits you with many other revolutionary  therapies, from various massage techniques to holistic therapies with a real impact on the revitalization of the body.

The main tourist attractions in Oltenia

Located on a hill in Maciuca village, Forest Retreat & Spa has the privilege of being in the center of the main sights and tourist attractions in Oltenia, an ancient land with a rich past. 

Maciuca Commune has always been an epicenter of Oltenian history and culture, many of the folk elements being rooted here.

The traditional architecture is represented by the fortified tower houses of some the local important people from the 19th century. Otetelisanu Mansion, the place where the inventor of the pen, Petrache Poenaru, came into this world, is only 18 km away.

Another important tourist attraction, Dragasani Vineyards, is only 26 km away from Forest Retreat & Spa. The area is considered the Tuscany of Romania and some of the most prestigious wineries in Eastern Europe can be found here.

It is no wonder that wine tourism is becoming more and more widespread, with winery owners building real relaxing oases where tourists from all over the world are welcomed. Stirbey Winery, Bauer Winery, Avincis Winery and Dobrusa Winery are just a few of the not to be missed tourist sights if you are in the area.

If you travel approximately 50 km towards the mountains, you will find some of the oldest monasteries in Oltenia, one more impressive than the other – for instance Manastirea dintr-un lemn or Bistrita Monastery.

Also in the mountain area you will find Maldar Mansion, an architectural masterpiece, in the typical style of the area, but also famous caves, such as Polovragi Cave or Muierii Cave.

Almost 70 km away is the access point onto one of the most spectacular roads in the world, Transalpina. It reaches the altitude of 2,145 m and crosses Parang Mountains from South to North.
