Nestled in the rolling hills of rural Romania, the Castelul de Lut Valea Zanelor looks like a cottage that jumped straight out of the pages of a fairytale.
Here’s the inside scoop on the enchanting estate.
In a small Romanian village just outside of Sibiu, the Castelul de Lut Valea Zanelor brings quirk and charm to the Fagaras Mountains, an area aptly known as the Valley of the Fairies.
Razvan and Gabriela Vasile, the owners of the hotel, named the finished estate 'Castelul de Lut Valea Zanelor,' which translates to 'Clay Castle of the Valley of the Fairies.'
The picturesque chalet was the product of the Vasiles' collaboration with eco-architect Ileana Mavrodin. Rooms are simple, and will be heated by wood fires.
The twisting, pointed roofs create a mystical architectural aesthetic, and the hotel's remote location will make guests feel like they have travelled into an old folktale.
The couple plans to extend the natural, rustic theme of the hotel with a restaurant that will offer local, organic food.
