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
havent 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,
Youll 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).
Mirela, history school teacher at the local school, will relate you
in French all charming fables and facts of history of this zone

Get past the first intersection(on the road to the relay, to the right),
