Guesthouse IRINA


An authentic peasant farm, composed of a traditional building and a new one, located in a quite zone of the village, near the Botiza river. The only noises you will hear while dining in the grass-covered courtyard are the ones of the horse-drawn carts passing in the street or rooster's singing and the bells of the church calling the believers for the Sunday morning service. The view of the hills covered with pastures and forest is delightful. In the house is arranged an exhibition room, where you may see or buy different Maramures rugs, made by your hostess herself.
Your hostess, an amiable person, will delight you with different local gastronomic specialities and, if interested, will teach you the traditional art of weaving. 

Places: 10

Access by car: from the centre of Botiza, before the bridge in front of the new church, take left on a country road (there is a local pub just at the crossroad), and follow Botiza river on its left shore. The guesthouse is on the left side of the road, at about 250m from the pub.
