Guesthouse MOCAN IOAN


A traditional, modernised guesthouse, with an architecture typical of the area, located on a very quiet site, at an altitude of over 1200 m. It is situated in a village belonging to the Biharia Massif, being surrounded by forest in all directions.
The Patrahaitesti village is a small mountain hamlet, where traditions haven’t changed for hundreds of years.
The view of the mountains, covered with fir-tree forests, the green meadows are just a few elements contributing to relaxation. Quiet, quiet, quiet!
You’ll be delighted to taste of the fresh bread, baked in the traditional oven in the courtyard.
The kind hosts can recommend what to visit in the area; upon request, you can benefit from the services of a guide (Claudiu studied tourism at university and knows the area even better than the villagers themselves).
His wife, Mirela, history school teacher at the local school, will relate you in French all charming fables and facts of history of this zone

Places: 12 

Access by car: from the centre of the Arieseni village, keep driving ca. 1 km on DN 75 toward Stei, then turn left on a 5-km long communal road, following the course of the Valea Steului rivulet, approx. 2.5 km long(passing the Montana pension). Get past the first intersection(on the road to the relay, to the right), at the second intersection continue on the main road(do not turn left), get past the next two crossroads(do not turn right, drive on straight ahead), then, straight on to the pension.
When there is snow, the road could be inaccessible with regular vehicles!! You can park your car in the valley, and your hosts will pick you up and bring you to the pension, on previous notice, in a horse-drawn sleigh – a unique experience.
