Bala, Mures County, is a stunning rural village in the heart of Transylvania. High up, in a bowl of rolling hills, it is the land that time forgot, green and sleepy with only the sound of cows’ bells tinkling as they are herded home from pasture and the clip-clop of a horse and cart. Experience life in the slow lane as it was a hundred years ago – almost the last unspoilt place in Europe you can see local people farming smallholdings and nursing their ancient traditions with love and pride.

The space
One room is a tiny yet cosy and very special vernacular room with a traditional Transylvanian 'drawer bed' (a two-storey bed of which the lower part can be pulled out as an open drawer) . It is ideal for single travellers, but can also accommodate two persons. The second room has a double bed with little windows and great view to the garden. The shower room and the toilet is situated in between the two rooms.


Both rooms are equipped with a small table and chairs , reading lamps; coffee, tea and mineral water; duvet bed covers , toiletries , bookshelves and writing paper. Heating is provided by electric heating and gas burning stove in the hallway. Children's cots can be added to most rooms. The village is surrounded by hills, fresh air and is very safe.

Location

Comuna Bala, Mureş County, Romania

Amazingly, it is only a 25-minute drive (35 km) from the romantic Baroque streets, bars and restaurants of Targu Mures, and its airport (Tirgu Mures, served by Wizz Air/Blue), and the extensive spa facilities and natural salt pools of Club Apollo in Sangeorgiu de Mures.
If you want to kick back and relax, you need never leave the village during your stay. There is a local bar and well-stocked village store, as well as local vendors of fresh eggs and bread – and you can always hike up to the shepherd’s hut to buy your cheese (and he’ll happily show you how he makes it).
The house is one of the oldest in the village, with its traditional carved wood veranda and hand-stencilled walls. Inside, it is both comfortable and bright, furnished with Transylvanian antiques and textiles. Here you can soak up the pure experience of life in a historical setting, but with present-day comforts.
