Out of passion for beauty and the desire to preserve the tradition of the Romanian village, to carry on our customs, traditions, we managed to gather an impressive collection of authentic folk costumes, art objects, paintings, in a location in Vama Buzaului.
We are ready to welcome all those who want to visit us and to whom we can show what Romanian folk tradition means, the beauty of the household setting in the middle of nature, unchanged too much by man.
Gospodaria Lui Nea Ion
A place charged with history, by the setting, the effort of keeping traditions and customs of our ancestors, life experiences of people in the Romanian village, all this apparently make time stop its flow.
It bears the name of a brave farmer in the commune, Ion Anghel (unfortunately, deceased), former beekeeper, carpenter and hunter, beside him, being Maria, his wife, a savvy seamstress who can tell you how life was in the village, in the past, what the peasants used to do and her fellow men’s lives.
The descendants of the two inherited their love for the beauty of life in the village, for the old, authentic objects of the household, in the village, and started this ambitious project to offer the tourists the opportunity to fill their souls with joy, remembrance for those who have tasted life in the country, when they cross their threshold.

The large house with paintings
It was originally built in 1929 and was made up of a large room, a small room, hall, barn and stable.
It was later restored, changing the destination of the rooms as follows: the stable became the dining room where you can still see a part of the animal manger and the barn where the hay was stored became a kitchen.
The rooms turned each into a double room and the attic turned into two suites.
The furniture in each room has its specific features dating from 1800 to 1900 in the style of Louis XVI and the Piedmont Baroque.
The name of each room is given by the painting theme with which it is decorated, paintings painted by Romanian painters known and less well known.
In the house there are showcases that host a lot of old objects collected during the years that can be admired during the stay.
So the Paintings’ house is composed of two double rooms (royal room and nude room) and two suites (2 adults + 2 children) – the flower and landscape suite with its own bathroom. The house has an elegant lobby, a fully equipped kitchen and a rustic-style dining room.
The Old House “Odaile bunicului Ion”
It dates from 1908, built of wooden barns, suspended on a dry stone foundation.
The house still retains the interior of the building and the exterior of the building for more than a century.
The interior of the furniture and the restored objects make us feel the life of our grandparents, at the same time providing good conditions. A combination of authentic tradition that resists the temptations of modernity.
The house veranda offers relaxing places on the two ladoaie/big cases, as old as the house.
This room accommodates 4 people in 2 double rooms with shared bathroom.
We are waiting for you with a cup of boiled wine and some pie and the hospitality specific to countryside people.
