Get yourself off the grid into the depths of Transylvania. This wooden cabin was built and decorated in traditional rustic style. Relax under the Milky Way, away from light pollution. No electricity. No heating. Take a torch or go to bed at sunset and enjoy the sound of the stream in the background. Rather like a glorified form of camping.
(We speak English, vorbim romaneste, parliamo italiano, on parle francais, wir sprechen Deutsch.)
The cabin consists of a downstairs room with a table, chairs and two single beds. A larder with shelves and a gas burner doubles up as the main cooking facility. There is a separate room with a sink with a feeble stream of water straight from the local spring. Steep stairs lead to a bedroom with a huge queen bed (which sleeps up to three people) and a single bed. The porch offers space for al fresco meals with a grand view over the valley.
A pipe from the local water spring brings water to a sink inside the cabin, with a ground soak at the back. Eco toilet outdoors: basic hole in the ground. Use pine needles as organic material. There is no heating: the wood burner in the photos is not connected to the vent.

Cabin best enjoyed between April and October because of the lack of heating. If you are unsure of the weather forecast for the area, drop me a line a day or two before your arrival and I'll ask the locals whether houses need heating.
