We invite you to relax, in the center of Costesti village, just 6 km from Horezu, in a forest cooled by the rushing waters that come down from Buila-Vanturita. Here, authentic crafts, made with great effort by the craftsmen of the village, are ready to convince you of their usefulness nowadays.

In an age of globalisation and consumerism, where we are invaded by impersonal, industrially made products, this cultural heritage must be preserved and passed on. In this way, the authentic image of the Romanian village can be preserved, where the new "exotic" constructions should be the exception, not the rule. The building is a restoration of a representative monument for the village of Costesti.

A brief history of the building:

The old body of the Inn - with its rural neo-romanesque style arches - was built between the two world wars by a family of village nobles. Its original purpose was as a spa establishment, being divided into 14 bathrooms on the ground floor and 14 rooms upstairs. The mineral waters of the village cured many sick people who were treated at the spa during its operation, even after the building was nationalized. After '89, the bathing establishment stopped working and the building deteriorated continuously until 2008, when its rehabilitation started. 

Tourist attractions in the area:

  • Oltenia de sub Munte really has something to show: mountains, caves, narrow gorges, monasteries, fortified houses, crafts, traditions, events, all within a fairly small radius - approx. 30 km.
  • Going up from the Inn on the road to the mountain, a few hundred meters away, there are 2 small old churches, restored with painstaking care and dedication
  • The Maldaresti cells, 10 km from Han - fortified constructions for the defence of the inhabitants from the haidu bands
  • Buila Vanturarita National Park, the smallest national park in the country - the entrance is less than 5km from the accommodation
  • The Bistrita Gorges, the narrowest in the country, are completed by the Costesti Gorges and the Oltetului Gorges, 30 km on the way to Transalpina
  • 9 km away is the Hurezi Monastery, included in the UNESCO heritage; just as close is the Arnota Monastery, passing halfway along the road near the Bistrita Monastery, which lies at the foot of the mountain.
  • A little further, at approx. 20 km in the direction of Ramnicu Valcea, there are the Dintr-un Lemn Monastery and the Govora Monastery, and 30 km in the opposite direction the Polovragi Monastery, from where you can also visit the Muierii Cave.
  • Those interested in caving can stay quiet in Costesti, because near the Bistrita Monastery there is the Cave of Bats. Even closer to the Inn, 2 km away, is the Museum of the Troubadours - of the stones that grow
  • Further up, in the village of Pietreni, near the springs that supply the commune with water, there is the 44th Hermitage of Springs - which besides its own beauty offers the visitor a fabulous view over the whole valley.
  • Plan now a holiday in the ideal place for a weekend, away from the crowds of big cities.
