Cluj-Napoca chateau / country house description

The house Cosma spread over 100 m2 is a comfortable holiday domicile for four persons. The one hundred and fifty year old house has been restored by us in 2008 from scratch and adapted to contemporary needs. You can reach the house through a private driveway with a beautiful, authentic wooden gate from Maramures. The house itself is situated on the southern slope on an approximately 7000 m2 large plot with a beautiful orchard and wonderful view.

The house has a dining cum kitchen on the ground floor with a nice seating and kitchenette made of solid oak. The living room is furnished cosy and modern and gets its special touch through traditional arts and crafts. On the ground floor there is also a nice shower bath, which picks up an individual character with the combination of old and new designs. On the top floor there are two cosy bedrooms for two persons.

The traditional Maramures terrace with beautiful carvings and benches is found in front of the house. From here you have a magnificent view of the Rodna and Tibles Mountains and our rural property lying on the other side of the valley.

House Cosma is an ideal base for nature lovers, hikers and hunters to explore the pristine environment. Monasteries and historic wooden churches are also great tourist spots as well as museums and markets in Sighet and the surrounding villages.
Guided walks, carriage rides, hunting and horseback riding are some of the recreational activities that you can pursue here..

Assistance can be provided in all aspects by an additional maid in the house. From laundry service, shopping to barbecue in the evenings, at the moment Carmen will be available to help you with words and deeds. The neighbours Mihai and Florentina, would gladly provide you with milk, cheese and eggs - all 'facut acasa' (homemade) and hundred percent organic.

The surrounding meadows and the entire premises are mowed annually by hand. Hence you will find a rare and protected flora with orchids, wild gladiolus, carnivorous plants, cotton grass and several other plants. The fauna is equally impressive with bear, wolf, lynx, deer, roe deer, wild cats, eagles and a variety of other rare birds such as oriole and hoopoe. An incredibly wide variety of species of butterflies and beetles enrich the surrounding.

Through our charitable foundation 'Botiza Fund' we support environmental, social and cultural projects in Botiza. We would be glad to provide more detailed information.

                      The house Cosma is a traditional house in Maramures and was newly constructed on a sunny plot a little bit away from the street that leads to the monastery 'Scimbare la Fata' in the village of Botiza. The village with 3500 inhabitants is located in the Maramures county (Romanian: Judet) at an altitude of 700 m above sea level. The distance to the Hungarian border is about 150 km and to Ukraine it is about 30 km. The nearest town is Sighet Marmatiei (approx. 38 km). The nearest airports are in Baia Mare (German: Frauenbach, about 80 km) or in Cluj (German: Klausenburg, about 170 km). Situated nearby - 15 km distance - are the Rodna National Park and Maramures National Park.

                      Botiza is an ideal place for nature lovers, peace-seekers, culture lovers, hikers and hunters. From here you can explore the Carpathian Mountains, undertake trips to the monasteries and wooden churches of Maramures or simply enjoy the country lifestyle and peace. Travelling and holiday seeking families with children are received with a warm welcome here.

                      A gorgeous panoramic view up to as far as the mountains of the Ukraine and the Rodna Mountains convey a feeling of vastness, wildness and tranquillity.
