This is a unique property at the shores of lake Tarnita, 30 km out of Cluj-Napoca in the Western Carpathians. The chalet welcomes families with children or a group of friends to relax, have a barbecue, swim, trek or do a bike tour around the hills.

The space
This authentic mountain cottage is located on a 1100 m² hillside property with a wide waterfront. The open ground floor has a fully equipped kitchen with a large dining table (which can be put out on the spacious 25 m² terrace) and hosts the living room with a fold-out couch and two armchairs. A spiral staircase leads to the bedroom with a king-sized bed, two mattresses (for children or extra guests) and large windows for a beautiful lake view. Ten steps from the cottage, there is a small hut for the shower and the toilet.

Guest access
You have access to the whole area! The large shared lower waterfront terrace provides enough space for badminton, beach ball or children playing soccer. At the fireplace you can put delicious vegetables or meat onto the barbeque or cook a traditional Transylvanian goulash soup in a cast iron pot. Another barbecue area is located behind the hut on another terrace. You can rent one of our seven kayaks, a canoe, sailing boats (just if you are an experienced sailor and can rigg the boat yourself) or a windsurf.

Other things to note
The shower and toilet are in a small hut and are rather rustic and simple. Wait for some 10 minutes after each shower (15 liter boiler) in order to have again hot water.
We ask you for your understanding for not being able to offer you a high standard here.

Location

Comuna Gilău, Județul Cluj, Romania

The property is located at the end of a private weekend cottage resort, next to the lake, so it is a rather quiet place. The surrounding wooded hills (some over 1000 m high) are great for hiking and mountain-biking (we can load you several tracks onto your GPS), traditional mountain villages are within reach. With the kayak you can explore the whole lake, swimming spots are found in many bays. If the summer is rainy, we can recommend you many places to search for mushrooms. On a hike to the opposite Lucaci Rock the landscape opens up and you can enjoy spectacular views on the lake, Cluj and the higher ridges of Marisel.
The nearest shop is 10 km away down the valley in Somesul Rece.

During your stay
We are a young, multicultural family with two young daughters with Transylvanian and Burundian roots. Over the summer, we live in the neighboring hut. The idea behind renting our second cabin is that we want to share this wonderful place with nice people. We could also have a barbecue together or go trekking on the hills around our place, but if you want to chill out and enjoy the tranquility of Tarnita, you are at the right place.
