Cluj-Napoca chateau / country house description

Haus Maris is an impressive, traditional house in a 90 ha large, park-like property. The hundred-year old house was restored completely in 2006 and adjusted to current demands. With 200 sq. m of living space and 90 sq. m in the neighbouring building offer a lot of space in spacious rooms. There are only three houses in this angle form in all of Maramures.

If you want tranquillity, relaxation and simultaneously inspiration, you will be able to find everything here. The extraordinarily beautiful surrounding nature, which gives many Romanian artists an unbelievably beautiful atmosphere together with libraries and impressive collections of paintings.

Haus Maris is an ideal starting point for nature lovers, hikers and hunters in order to discover the original surrounding. Excursions to monasteries and historic wooden churches are offered as destinations just like the museums and markets in Sighet and the surrounding cities.

The paintings, art objects and trophies found in the house and in the adjacent building are all original. The paintings are mostly from Oszkar Nagy and David Jandi (school from Baia Mare) as well as other Romanian artists.

Furthermore, there are objects from the estate of the famous English travel author Sir Patrick Leigh Fermor who passed away in 2011. He hiked in the forties of the past century from Hoek van Holland to Constantinople, his path led through Romania as well. Forty years later he described his hike in a world-famous, two-band work, 'Time of Gifts' and 'Land Between Forests and Water'. These books are in the house as well.

On the ground floor you will find the dining room and the connected kitchen and dining chamber, the library and the guest WC. On the top floor you will find a very spacious, open living room with an adjacent bedroom and a separate bathroom.

We would like to point out that Haus Maris with the adjacent building is not suitable for children under ten years due to the equipment and the constructional circumstances. Our Haus Cosma is ideal for families with smaller children.

An additional house caretaker can offer further support in all concerns. From washing to shopping to grill evenings, Carmen is ready to help you.

The surrounding meadows and the entire premises are mowed by hand annually. Thus, you will find rare and protected flora with orchids, wild gladiolas, carnivorous plants, cotton grass and many other plants. The fauna also impresses with bears, wolves, lynx, moose, deer, wild cats, eagles and a variety of other rare birds, like hoopoe and orioles. An unbelievably large diversity of butterflies and beetles add to the surrounding.

Guided hikes, carriage rides, hunting and horse riding are a few recreational activities which you can enjoy here.

With our non-profit foundation 'Botiza Fond', we support our ecological, social and cultural projects in Botiza. We would be happy to provide you with more information.

Car: Recommended

The estate with the three holiday homes is located in northwest Romania above the city of Botiza near (Romanian Judet) Maramures at a height of 700 above sea level. The distance to the Hungarian border is about 150 km, about 30 km to Ukraine. The nearest city is Sighet Marmatiei (approx. 38 km). The closest airports are in Baia Mare (German Frauenbach, approx. 80 km) or in Cluj (German Klausenburg, approx 170 km). Nearby - 15 km air-line - you will find the Rodna and the Maramures national parks.

The state is a regional gem on 60 ha with an unbelievably impressive flora and fauna. This property is unique in the Maramures. With its extraordinary location (by the monastery, Scimbare la Fata, named after the holiday when the nature changes its face from summer to fall) impresses every visitor. A wonderful far-reaching view up to the mountains of Ukraine and the Rodna Mountains give off the feeling of expansiveness, wilderness and tranquillity.
