Disconnect, relax, enjoy nature, eat delicious local food and... learn how to make cheese in my little workshop! What better way to discover the rural culture of Romania?

Moments to expect during your stay in this Transylvania village house:

    Every morning we take our cows in the open fields around Cund and ask for their milk. We leave the village and visit our ladies on the pasture to collect that great white liquid needed for cheesemaking! Don't worry, they are very friendly and you can learn how milking is done - by hand!

  • Time for some cheesemaking!

    Once we have all the ingredients, I'll take you to my workshop and show you the basic cheesemaking techniques: warming, coagulating, cutting the curd and pressing the cheese. I'll tell you about different tastes, how to smoke your cheese, add other ingredients and make your own at home.

  • Finally - time for the cheese eating-brunch
