Cheia village is located in the heart of the Apuseni mountains of Transylvania, right next to the beautiful Ramet Gorges (Cheile Rametului) as well as three other beautiful gorges, Cheile Pravului, Cheile Piatra Bălții and Cheile Geogelului. We are surrounded by two rivers, wild forests, majestic mountains and landscapes.

The space
The guesthouse is a renovated, traditional Romanian house from the 19th century with straw roof, kept in the way it used to be 100 years ago.

Cheia can only be reached by foot. We live 5km (1,5h hike) away from the next village, Bradesti, where you can park your car or arrive by taxi from Aiud.

The space

The space is kept as basic and traditional as possible. We have no electricity except from photovoltaic panels, please know that charging devices is not available in the guest house. We have a summer kitchen with gas cooking that can be used. There is a new outdoor shower and a dry toilet with sink. You are also welcome to wash up in one of the rivers, which will be a very refreshing experience.

The house itself is heated by a wood stove made of clay. It has 2 rooms with each one bed and one stove. The beds are small but we welcome people to sleep closely together like in the old times :)

We love to make bonfires. The space is also open for tourists with tents.

Cheia Village is our home! Ethnographic preservation site in the heart of Apuseni Mountains in Romania. Here the lack of a functional road for cars and the lack of electricity, added value to this place.. Going so nice and smooth.....back in time!
