Cluj-Napoca chateau / country house description

Palaga House is an impressive, traditional house in 60-acre large, park-like grounds. The two hundred year old house has been restored by us in 2007 from the ground up and thereby adapted to the demands of modern day. The many installations which were preserved originally like the ceilings and doors along with natural furniture provide a great testimony for old craftsmanship of Maramures. With 180 m2 of living area, it offers plenty of space in the spacious rooms. In the whole of Maramures there are very few houses of this size.

Those seeking peace, relaxation and inspiration at the same time, will find here all of this. The exceptionally beautiful natural surroundings and the incredibly beautiful ambience of the house create here a space for complete relaxation and rejuvenation.

Palaga House is an ideal base for nature lovers, hikers and hunters to explore the pristine environment. Excursions to monasteries and historic wooden churches are also destinations worth visiting as much as museums and markets in Sighet and the surrounding villages.

The house is furnished stylishly and with great sensitivity. Genuine pieces of furniture are combined with antiques from France and Germany, ancient art from Romania and hunting trophies complete the interior.

In the ground floor you will find two living rooms, kitchen, hallway and guest toilet. Upstairs there is a hall /living room with library, two large bedrooms and a shower room. Palaga house is designed with solid oak parquet flooring. In the ground floor there are two traditional brick ovens, which spread very cosy warmth. Upstairs the bedrooms are heated with fireplaces. The wood used is readily available and included in the price.

Assistance can be provided in all aspects by an additional maid. From laundry and shopping to barbecue evenings, Carmen is available at present in words and deeds upon request.

The surrounding meadows and the entire grounds are manually mowed with hand once every year. Therefore, you will find a rare and preserved flora with orchids, wild gladiolus, carnivorous plants, cotton grass and many other plants. Equally impressive is the fauna with bear, wolf, lynx, deer, roe deer, wild cats, eagles and a variety of other rare birds such as orioles and hoopoes. An incredibly wide variety of species of butterflies and beetles enrich the environment.

Guided hiking tours, carriage rides, hunting and horseback riding are some of the recreational activities that you can pursue here.

With our charitable foundation 'Botiza Fund' we support environmental, social and cultural projects in Botiza. We would be glad to provide you with more details.

                          The farm with the three houses is located northwest of Romania above the village Botiza in the county (Romanian Judet) of Maramures at an altitude of 700 m above sea level. The distance to the Hungarian border is about 150 km and it is 30 km to Ukraine. The nearest town city 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). Rodna and Maramures - National Park are found nearby in 15 km distance.

                          The farm is a treasure in the region spread over 60 acres with an incredibly impressive flora and fauna. This property is unique in Maramures. With its exceptional location (vis-à-vis the monastery, Scimbare la Fata ', named after the holiday, when nature - summer / autumn - changes its face), it impresses every visitor. A gorgeous panoramic view up to as far as the mountains of Ukraine and Rodna Mountains convey a feeling of vastness, wildness and tranquillity.
