About the property

House in Harja, Nr. Onesti, Bacau, Romania - views to the mountains

Beautifully restored and fully modernised village house. Quiet and peaceful with a large garden and views to the mountains and wooded hills. You can enjoy the traditional life of the village, where horse-drawn carts are more commonly seen than cars and geese, chickens, goats and ducks wander along the tracks between the houses. The meadows of wild flowers are wonderful to see and hay is cut by hand and stacked into beehive-shaped heaps. Early in the morning you can watch the cows being taken to pasture and in the evening their return. In summer you may pick bowlfuls of wild strawberries, blueberries and, in the autumn, mushrooms. In the evening come back to a cosy wood-burning stove or, in summer sit on the cool terrace, look at the stars and barbecue your supper. A stream runs down the hill just outside the property and joins the river.

What makes this house unique

This is an opportunity to see a way of life that has long disappeared from most of western Europe. Traditional farming is still very much alive in this part of Romania and you can enjoy it in the glorious landscape around the house and village.

Notes on accommodation: Suitable for children. All the profit from letting Pensione Trifolia will go to supporting the 17 children who live in our three houses in Harja. Some of them have been with us for 13 years. Almost all of them came from orphanages and our aim is that they should be able to stay until they want to leave home. Their ages are from 5 to 16. Outside: Large garden with steps up to the hill which is part of the property and from which there are wonderful views of the mountains and the rest of the village. Big patio with seating. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Towels and linen included. Linen changed every 3 days.

A delightful base for exploring

  • 4 of 5

We were given a warm welcome to Pensione Trifolia and the house was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The location on the edge of the village ensured a peaceful few days, with cowbells, birdsong and a rippling stream the only sounds to be heard. Numerous opportunities for walking in the area and fabulous views.
