Casa Mosului Guesthouse opened in 2008. It was built in a thousand year old village, full of stories about colorful characters. The house is made out of wood and rock, decorated with authentic, old items, from the Fagaras Valley.
We are not a big hotel and our guests become our friends quickly. Mosu, well, he has, as you would expect, white hair. He is kind and attentive with all the people coming to his house.
We have five big and sunny rooms, with shiny floors and soft beds, ideal for lazy afternoons and silent nights. You reach them by climbing an original staircase made out of logs from the nearby woods. In the living room, near the fireplace, we have a big table, usually full of all the delicacies of the region, carefully cooked by aunt Mariana.
We expect you with a blooming garden, from spring to autumn, where, in the evening you can stay for one more glass of wine or even make your own barbecue. If you are not in the mood for drinking and dining, you can just listen to the crickets, hidden in the grass. In winter time our garden hosts, free of charge, as much snowmen you can build.
*All rooms have: private bathroom facilities and free WI-FI.
We want to be your home away from home that’s why we don’t have a fixed menu, like in a restaurant. Aunt Mariana, our wonderful chef, cooks the daily meals using only the freshest products she finds in Cartisoara and the neighboring villages. This way, eating in our house is a true culinary lesson about the rich Romanian cuisine. All the community is part of the meal preparation in our guesthouse. Ghita brings us each morning fresh milk. Rica the shepard sends us maturated cheese or fresh specialities from his sheepfold located in the incredible beautiful Balii Valley. His sheeps are eating only the finest grass mixed with the most delicate mountain flowers. The trout is taken from some creeks in the village. The herbs grow in the gardens nearby. All meat, whether chicken, veal, pork or mutton, found in our kitchen, is not similar with the one in the supermarkets. The fruits from our orchards become delicious jams, and our bees make the sweetest honey in the world. But don’t take our word for it, come and try for yourself.
Aunt Mariana is the queen of „sarmale”, a traditional food, consisting in rolls of cabage leaves stuffed with meat and rice. Some travelers would argue with that, saying that she is the queen of minced mutton dish. Come try her soups, meatballs, grilled trout or pork sausage. Don’t forget to ask for apple pie!
