some photos of guesthouses!
Staying in a guesthouse in Maramures Romania, land of wooden churches,
is one of the best choices you could make. Nice fresh air, pure
nature and quietness - everything is present to make your stay
in Maramures memorable.
The only sound you may hear in late afternoon from your guesthouse
is the one of the horse-drawn carts, walking home after a day's
work. When you open the windows of your room, wonderful hay parfume
is getting in.
All guesthouses have private bathrooms, running cold and hot water.
You'll be impressed by the cleanness of your rooms. Quite often,
rooms are decorated with embroidered towels or painted rugs. Many
of them have icons, to have the household protected by God.
One more reason for choosing guesthouses in the countryside for
our tours in Maramures is great local gastronomy. All you eat
is homemade, based on recipes inherited from mother to daughter.
Most of food is organic - every peasant produces his own vegetables,
the cow is getting green grass or hay from the meadows. Even pigs
get corn or potatoes - you won't believe, but in the Romanian
countryside the are cooking for the pigs too!
For most of the crops peasants still use manor, the guarantee
of a healthy food.
Maramures carpets are well-known. Using an old wooden loom, most
of women are making such carpets out of sheep wool.. Real pieces
of art, Maramures carpets are quite a symphony of colors and patterns,
including a huge amount of work.
A village in Maramures is one of the best location to discover
live traditions, excellent food, but also a very special welcoming
spirit, which is missing more and more in nowadays.
Try to spend one or two nights in a guesthouse in Maramures (Botiza
or Poienile Izei) and you will probably be quite sad living this
paradise in the departure day to continue your tour in Romania!
