Richiș 22 – Authentic Saxon House

Created with Sketch. Richiș, Romania View on map

Description

Richiș is “The land of Saxon magic”.

Why??

Well, Richiș is that magical village where culture, history, gastronomy, authenticity, nature & tradition meet under the same roof, under a unique Saxon Seal.

All the beautiful multicolor houses are still surviving after hundreds of years and they have an amazing story to say. Just looking at them you can see a story that was almost forgotten, but we try to bring it all back.

My Saxon house, Richis 22, is one of the multicolored, beautiful houses, that completes the “village rainbow”. Everything is made with love to make you fell at home.

Location and surroundings

The Richiș village is situated in the heart of Transylvania, being surrounded by the vineyards and magnificent forests. In the summer, the vineyards are making you feel like you are in Vietnam on the rice plantation 🙂

Richis is situated very strategic – 61km from Sibiu airport (1 hour driving), Târgu Mureș airport 61 km, Sighișoara 36km (30 min driving), Mediaș 26km (20 min driving). All those cities have train stations, buss stations helping you to get very easy anywhere, even to me 🙂

Accommodation

Richiș 22 is a beautiful authentic Saxon house. I try to keep everything as authentic, as possible just improving the conditions inside. I transformed the 2 pig barns in 2 magical bedrooms. These bedrooms are very special because are designed in the rustic Romanian way, with fireplaces. I love to call this “a romantic experience in a rustic romanian way”.

The other 2 bedrooms from the house are a mix of Saxon/bohemian creation. In the summer, the rooms keep a cold temperature and in the winter, when the walls become warm, is that perfect ambience of Christmas inside. We also have a beautiful spacious livingroom, connected to the diningroom, veranda or kitchen. “My kitchen is your kitchen”, you can feel at home, preparing any meal you like.

The house have also 3 bathrooms (1 shared bathroom and 2 private bathrooms). The garden is 800 sqm and is just that perfect carpet of green grass to walk with bare feet on. Some fruit trees are lost in the garden.

And the last beautiful thing I have is the big barn that was built in 1800, saved from the collapsing in 2018. Here is the perfect place to have a breakfast, lunch, dinner and admiring the beautiful wine heels. Richiș 22 is the place where you can find and reinvent yourself.

Activities

Here you’ll find many beautiful activities you can do in Richis: Bike rides (rented from Richis 22) to the nearest village, Biertan(6km). This village has the most beautiful fortified church in Transylvania, being classified as UNESCO monumente. In Alma Vii (6km) you can find another fortified church.

Hiking through the forest, you will find another beautiful saxon village, Nemșa (3km). On the road you will have the opportunity to admire the beautiful wild animals: deers, rabbits, foxes.

You can visit Sighișoara, the only medieval still inhabited fortress in Europe, that is just (30 min driving). Also, you can visit Mediaș (20min driving) or Sibiu (1 hour driving), another great saxon city which I like to call “the little Viena”. Near Sibiu, you can find Ocna Sibiului, a balneoclimateric natural salty lake in open air.

Richiș was once known like the “land of wine”. Saxons plant different types of authentic grapes from their motherland. So we still keep here the tradition alive, we are doing wine tasting. Is a unique experience that you’ll not find anywhere else.

The traditional saxon gastronomy is still surviving. That’s why we organize lunch/dinner (with 24h previous programming) in different houses in the village. We organize even the Picnic basket (minim 2persons) with all the authentic home made treats, using only local ingredients from the villagers. The fruits, vegetables, different type of cheese, bread, meat (depending on the season).

At Richiș 22 you can find the perfect combination between saxon wine and saxon gastronomy .

Richiș 22 has a little “Spa”, too. Here you will find a massage room, where you can take care of yourself. Only in the summer time we are open for this service. Usually, people, once arrived in Richiș, all they do is relaxing and reconnecting with themselves and with the nature. Disconnecting from all the stress and bad energy.

Is always something to do in Richis, do not worry.

5.0 "O alta vineri"

E vineri...ma opresc cu greu din ce am de facut( mai am de munca, dar nu mai am chef sa muncesc ) . Plec... oare unde ma opresc de data asta ? Dupa 4 ore si jumatate m- am oprit in acest sat ce pare pastrat de Grigorescu pentru cel mai intim peisaj al sau. Sunt in Richis si cobor usor pe drumul serpuit ce duce spre o biserica veche fortificata care pare sa stranga in jurul ei un sat plin de poveste .Cobor pe drum si dintr-o data imi sare in ochi o poarta ce are o gresie albastra pe ea care pare sa spuna o poveste.Imaginea ma invita sa bat la poarta nr. 22 . Imi fac curaj sa bat si ... in fata mea apare un miraj. Nu ,nu e sasoaica batrana plina de poveti la care te astepti sa deschida, e o tipa cu un zambet fermecator cu parul ars parca de prea multe drumuri pe Drumul Matasii.zambeste larg si da poarta de perete ,deschizand in fata mea o splendida gradina de mirodenii ce ascunde in capat o sura mare transformata intr-o "camera mare de zi". Sunt poftit in sura pentru un pahar de palinca pana e gata camera mea ..."camera vacutei" . Nu termin bine paharul ca ma trezesc intr-o camera minunata cu o baie ascunsa in perete cu o usa parca rupta din povestiile fratiilor Grimm. Ma instalez si ies la cina in sura ,unde ma asteapta o supa de gaina,urmata de o prtie mare de paste cu leurda si branza de capra . Seara s-a terminat cu un pahar de vin alb acompaniat de povestiile magice ale gazdei . POATE NU E CEA MAI BINE CONTURATA POVESTE COMERCIALA ....Dar cu siguranta e in top 3 cele mai frumoase si autentice locuri in care am fost

Ne identificam și ne recunoaștem de cele mai multe ori prin simțuri. Richis și oamenii locului iti redau bucuria de a respira , de a vedea , de a simți, de a pipai. Richis 22 e mai mult decât o casa traditionala , e un spirit , o mireasma , un negând, doar o trăire și poate " 22 " nu e întâmplător. Multumesc Adanei ( sufletul locului ) și melcului și soarelui .

4.8 "Beauté et sérénité - Serenity and beauty"

La maison et les chambres sont décorées avec goût, en alliant mobilier et objets traditionnels à ceux glanés au fil de ses voyages par Adana. Le jardin est magnifique, quel plaisir de s'y asseoir au soleil en lisant un livre! La cuisine d'Adana est excellente et elle s'implique beaucoup dans la vie du village, notamment en recommandant des bonnes adresses locales. Beauté et sérénité, voici les maîtres mots de notre séjour à Richis 22. The house and the rooms are decorated with great taste in traditional style but also with objects reminding the countries where Adana traveled. The garden is amazingly beautiful! What a pleasure to just sit there and read your book, watch the sky or listen to the birds singing! Adana cooks like a chef and we enjoyed very much our breakfast and dinner there. She's very involved with people of the village, giving tips to buy local products, motivating kids to take care of the environment, and we very much appreciated that. We found beauty and serenity in Richis 22. Isabelle and Elvio

We had an amazing time with kid and in-laws when visiting, using Richis 22 as base for exploring the area. Adana is an amazing woman and host. Her meals are delicious and must try if you are in the area. Each of the rooms have a unique decorations style and an authentic look and feel. I have been in many other places so far and known to be very picky with where I choose to stay, also with the reviews I write. I wholeheartedly recommend you stay here and get to know Adana. I liked her concerns around environmental friendly tourism, the rigour she puts in selecting what ingredients she uses for her meals (which are memorable) and her openess to discuss any topics and have an opinion on them. Also enjoyed her sense of humour. Hope you will give it a try and leave her a comment here. She is open to feedback and willing to learn more.

We had an amazing stay at Richis 22! Adana made our stay perfect with her kindness, happiness, energy and smile! 🙂 The breakfast was deeeeelicious (thank you, thank you, thank you Adana), the place is beautifully decorated, original, tranquil, with spacious rooms and lots of cozy fireplaces (an absolute must after a day out in the cold winter). In close proximity to many Saxon fortified churches of Transylvania (including the UNESCO World Heritage Site at Biertan), Adana’s guesthouse is everything you wished for! Can’t wait to come back in the summer!

5.0 "Back to the roots"

RO: Richis 22 este locul de unde simti ca ai plecat si te-ai reintors dupa ce ai ratacit prin lume.Cand intri in acest satuc, aparent uitat de lume, nu ai prea mari asteptari, insa Adana are grija sa ti-l descopere.Cu povesti, cu plimbari prin padure alaturi de cei mai prietenosi catei, Ronia si Milo, dar si cu dragostea ei pentru acest loc. Tot din dragoste a si creat Richis 22, unde a adunat cele mai frumoase si autentice obiecte, dar si energia pozitiva pe care ajungi sa o simti in fiecare colt al casei. Adana e fascinanta, prin felul ei de a fi, de a povesti, de a gati(cele mai bune mic dejunuri) si de a trai, si asa a ajuns si Richis 22 sa fie un loc fascinant. Pentru mine si prietena mea a fost o experienta minunata, asemanatoare cu "Under the Tuscan Sun" si "Eat, Pray, Love" :D. Multumim, Adana! EN: Richis 22 seems to be the place you left and came back after you wandered around the world.When you arrive to this small village, you might not have high expectations, but Adana will help you discover its magic.With stories, with walks in the woods with the friendliest dogs, Ronia and Milo, but also with her love for this place. Also out of love, she created Richis 22, where she gathered the most beautiful and authentic objects, but also the positive energy that you get to feel in every corner of the house. Adana is fascinating in her way of being, telling stories, cooking (the best breakfasts) and living, and so Richis 22 has become a fascinating place. For me and my friend it was a wonderful experience, similar to "Under the Tuscan Sun" and "Eat, Pray, Love": D. Thank you, Adana!

4.6 "Cosy Transylvanian place"

We've stayed for 4 nights in the second part of November, having the entire place at our disposal. The house is carefully refurbished with old objects, large yard and superb woodshed where you can sped quiet evenings watching clear sky and a glass of wine, of for winter time, you can enjoy the wine by the wooden fireside from the rooms. Do not miss the food: very tasty breakfast and dinner prepared by Adana complete the dreaming picture. Adana it's a perfect host full of energy and joy. Highly recommended her place!

Richis 22 is a wonderful place. The house is beautiful and sparkling clean, a collector's house with many great finds curated by the host. Adana is an amazing host and person, she is very generous, full of good vibes, stories and tips for your trips. The setting is splendid, there are many places to explore both in Richis and close by, by bike or by car. And if the mood for exploration is low, sunbathing in the yard watching the hawks fly right above you is equally pleasant. Me and my friends felt very welcome at Adana's place, we had a wonderful time, we were spoiled with some very tasty breakfasts, a walk in the nearby forest, cozy evenings by the fireplace, and an all around great time. I recommend this place wholeheartedly.

5.0 "A-mazing"

Richis 22 is what I needed to get my mind off everything and just enjoy my free time. Peace and serenity, simple comfort, nice nature around, and the feeling of being far away from all the buzz of a big city. Adana is a one of a kind host. After a few nights at her place, it felt like we were good friends since forever. She showed us around the village, she cooked amazing breakfasts, we were even invited to her birthday dinner around the fire with her friends. If you are looking for privacy, I am sure you will get that, just don’t miss out on a conversation with her, she is an explosion, in the best way possible. Loved her. And her place.

Curtea linistita, dealul survolat de soim, admirate in timp ce savurezi cafeaua de pe sezlongul din hambar, toate te fac sa simti ca esti acasa, indiferent de unde ai fi venit. Iar gazda Adana...e greu de descris, pentru ca rar intalnesti o asemenea personalitate. Dar cred ca adorabila ar fi un minim cuvenit! Ma voi intoarce cu placere oricand!

Richis 22 it’s more than a house, it’s a full experience! Me and my friends spent 4 nights over there and it was lovely! The location is breathless, amazing landscape, rustic experience, a fairytale village full of friendly and opened people. The house it’s sparkling clean, with rustic furniture and every detail creates a relaxing atmosphere. The host is amazing, Adana took care of every single detail so that we had a great holiday. Even our dog is felt very sad when we had to leave! In few words, everything was perfect and we recommend this kind of experience at least every year!?
