Satul Banului Guest House is a traditional mountain household, brought to life with great passion and good taste. We await you with unique experiences at the foot of the Bucegi mountains, right in the Prahova Valley. Our rooms are stylish, with local specificity. You will find we have ideal spaces for private events, a spacious garden, chariot or sledge rides opportunities and delicious dishes, cooked according to recipes passed down from generation to generation.
Satul Banului Guest House is located about one and a half hours from Bucharest, in the sub-commune of Măgureni, Prahova county. The nearest airport is Henri Coandă International Airport, one hour away from the guest house. From there you can reach the North Railway Station by train or maxi-taxi. From the train station there are direct routes to the village.
The accommodation unit does not appear exactly in the GPS indexing as we wanted to keep the place intact, full of tradition and quiet for our tourists, so you will receive from us the precise coordinates after you make your booking. The nearest grocery store is only 5 minutes away. If you want to buy local produce, about an hour’s walk from the Satul Banului Guest House, there is Prestigio, a store that sells smoked meat products.
Satul Banului Guest House is an old traditional house, restored by local craftsmen, using old techniques, and enlivened with handcrafted objects, collected from the neighbors’ attics: decorations, ustensils, beams and other old elements.
The interior decoration style of the rooms is inspired by the traditional style of the mountain houses. The rooms bear the imprint of our dear childhood, being named in memory of our great-grandparents: Mother Lina, Mother Flower and Mother Lisandra.
We have three spacious rooms, with comfortable double beds, Romanian decorations and private bathrooms, furnished in a rustic style, but adapted to contemporary facilities. The rooms can accommodate two people, but on request we can provide an extra bed for an additional charge (25 euros / stay).
The household barn is designed for relaxation and meals. Here you can listen to old vinyl music, socialize and taste authentic Romanian wine. There is no wi-fi or modern gadgets because we do not want you to be distracted by the outside world. We place our bet on socializing, wity stories by the camp fire and wealthy meals.
