HOUSE COSMA - SUNNY, TRADITIONAL HOUSE WITH A SPECIAL CHARM

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Maramures - Dream houses

Charming house with ambience and beautiful terrace

The house Cosma spread over 100 m2 is a comfortable holiday domicile for four persons. The one hundred and fifty year old house has been restored by us in 2008 from scratch and adapted to contemporary needs. You can reach the house through a private driveway with a beautiful, authentic wooden gate from Maramures. The house itself is situated on the southern slope on an approximately 7000 m2 large plot with a beautiful orchard and wonderful view.

The house has a dining cum kitchen on the ground floor with a nice seating and kitchenette made of solid oak. The living room is furnished cosy and modern and gets its special touch through traditional arts and crafts. On the ground floor there is also a nice shower bath, which picks up an individual character with the combination of old and new designs. On the top floor there are two cosy bedrooms for two persons.

The traditional Maramures terrace with beautiful carvings and benches is found in front of the house. From here you have a magnificent view of the Rodna and Tibles Mountains and our rural property lying on the other side of the valley.

House Cosma is an ideal base for nature lovers, hikers and hunters to explore the pristine environment. Monasteries and historic wooden churches are also great tourist spots as well as museums and markets in Sighet and the surrounding villages.

Guided walks, carriage rides, hunting and horseback riding are some of the recreational activities that you can pursue here..

Assistance can be provided in all aspects by an additional maid in the house. From laundry service, shopping to barbecue in the evenings, at the moment Carmen will be available to help you with words and deeds. The neighbours Mihai and Florentina, would gladly provide you with milk, cheese and eggs - all 'facut acasa' (homemade) and hundred percent organic.

The surrounding meadows and the entire premises are mowed annually by hand. Hence you will find a rare and protected flora with orchids, wild gladiolus, carnivorous plants, cotton grass and several other plants. The fauna is equally impressive with bear, wolf, lynx, deer, roe deer, wild cats, eagles and a variety of other rare birds such as oriole and hoopoe. An incredibly wide variety of species of butterflies and beetles enrich the surrounding.

Through our charitable foundation 'Botiza Fund' we support environmental, social and cultural projects in Botiza. We would be glad to provide more detailed information.

perfect place to spend time

  • 5 out of 5
They say you will always remember your honeymoon and thanks to Casa Cosma we will, from the moment you come through the gate you are met with a beautiful traditional home, step inside and its the perfect blend of modern and old styles Lilly and Volker both have a fantastic eye for detail and every piece of furniture fits in perfectly to the all around beauty of this wonderful house. Botiza itself is beautiful and the locals could not be any more friendly, take a guided trip up the mountains, eat the local cheese eggs and honey we will definately be returning

Better Than Perfect

  • 5 out of 5
Lilli and Volker have created something magical in Casa Cosma. We were looking for an authentic rural house in Maramures. Cosma did not disappoint. Up until our 'discovery' here on HomeAway, only Europeans seemed to have found their way to this gem of a house. Now I hope more North Americans will follow us there.
The description and photos were representative, but the reality is better.
We loved the attention to preservation of the original design while adding modern conveniences.
If you want to go to sleep to the sounds of horse carts carrying their load of hay and wake up with the roosters, you'll love Cosma.
If you want to shop the village market; cook your own meals; have the neighbor deliver fresh warm milk and eggs every morning; watch the bees gather pollen in a garden full of wildflowers; and wonder pot-holed back roads then welcome to paradise.

Excellent historic wooden house in dream village

  • 5 out of 5
For the sixt year on a row Maramures has been a marvellous place to spend a holiday - weather is is the friendly people, the fairytale landscapes, the divine attention to traditions, the picturesque villages, or probably the combination of the above, we love Maramures and certainly will be back again soon.

Especially if Casa Cosma is available; for the first time we were able to find the perfect spot: a private house with loads of caracter and history, whilst having the comforts of home. Please Lilli and Volkert, continue your beautiful activities in favour of the village of Botiza and all who gather there ! Thank you for having us !

The reception was warm; everything that could be done for welcoming us was done without hesitation. Great environment, great hosts, great excursion with a local guide. Greatly recommended, ***** !

traumschön

  • 5 out of 5
Wunderschönes Dorf und wunderschönes Haus mit unglaublichen tollen Nachbarn.
Bei einem Spaziergang ins Dorf "Buna Siua" gelernt, und Später zurück "Buna sera". Sehr toll von allen empfangen worden, auch wenn wir ziemlich geschafft von der Anreise waren. Viel Ruhe und Besinnung gehabt, schön dunkel nachts und still dort. Es gibt sicher jede Menge zu erkunden. Ein gutes Buch im Heuschober auf dem Grundstück rund ums Haus zu lesen, ist aber mein persönlicher Geheimtip!

Owner's Response: Es freut uns sehr, dass Sie so schöne Erfahrungen gemacht haben. Die Bibliothek im Haus wird in Zukunft noch weiter wachsen, so dass im Heuschober oder anderswo das Lesevergnügen noch grösser wird. Alles Gute!

Reise in die Vergangenheit

  • 5 out of 5
Wir haben im Sommer 2014 2 Wochen im Casa Cosma verbracht.
Das Haus ist geräumig und sehr geschmackvoll und gemütlich eingerichtet. In jedem Raum kann man an kühlen Tagen einen Ofen befeuern, wovon wir einige Male Gebrauch gemacht haben.
In der schönen Massivholzküche ist alles vorhanden, was man zum Kochen benötigt – bisher haben wir noch keine so perfekt ausgestattete Ferienwohnung gefunden.

Das Haus liegt am Ortsrand von Botiza, etwas erhöht an einem Hang, so dass man einen schönen Blick über das Dorf hat. Hinter dem Haus beginnt eine Streuobstwiese und dann Wald; man kann dort direkt die erste Wanderung beginnen :-)
Anders als die anderen Häuser der Vermieter liegt Casa Cosma nicht ganz abgelegen, sondern man bekommt trotz des großen Gartens noch ein wenig vom Dorfleben mit und hat zudem mit Florentina und ihrer Familie sehr sehr nette Nachbarn, die uns mit Eiern, Milch, Käse, Kuchen und anderen leckeren Dingen versorgt haben. Zudem haben sie wie die meisten Bewohner Botizas viele Tiere wie Hühner, Schweine, Pferde und eine Kuh, worüber sich besonders unsere zweijährige Tochter freute. Im Garten gibt es die Möglichkeit zu grillen oder einfach nur ein Lagerfeuer zu machen, Holz ist reichlich vorhanden.

Maramures ist eine wunderschöne Kulturlandschaft, die wie geschaffen für ausgedehnte Wanderungen ist. Ebenso bietet sich das Besichtigen der zahlreichen historischen Holzkirchen, ein Ausflug nach Sighet und Sapanta sowie die Fahrt in der Wassertalbahn an. Unvergessen wird uns unser Ausflug mit Förster Boboc und die Fahrt in seinem Geländewagen bleiben!

Für uns war der Aufenthalt auch ein wenig wie eine Reise in die Vergangenheit: Die Heuernte war in vollem Gange – mit Sense, Holzrechen und Pferdewagen. So gut wie keine Autos, keine Flugzeuge, das einzige was man hört sind Grillen und andere Insekten.

Die Menschen waren sehr nett und hilfsbereit, genau wie die Verwalterin Carmen und die Vermieter selbst, wir fühlten uns stets willkommen.
Dies war bisher der entspannteste Urlaub den wir verbracht haben. Vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit!

Viele Grüße,

Sarah, Helge und Junia

ein Traum ..

  • 5 out of 5
Wir haben im September 2012 und im Mai 2013 jeweils drei wunderschöne Wochen im Haus Cosma verbracht. Das Haus ist ein Traum , die Lage und Umgebung sowieso. Alle Leute waren freundlich und offen. Wir hatten unsere Hunde dabei , beim zweiten Urlaub haben wir eine kleinen Hund gefunden und mit zurück nach Deutschland genommen so dass wir jetzt ein dauerhaftes Andenken an Botiza haben. Die Umgebung ist wunderbar zum Wandern – ein robustes Auto hilft beim Erreichen der Wanderausgangspunkte.

The house Cosma is a traditional house in Maramures and was newly constructed on a sunny plot a little bit away from the street that leads to the monastery 'Scimbare la Fata' in the village of Botiza. The village with 3500 inhabitants is located in the Maramures county (Romanian: Judet) at an altitude of 700 m above sea level. The distance to the Hungarian border is about 150 km and to Ukraine it is about 30 km. The nearest town is Sighet Marmatiei (approx. 38 km). The nearest airports are in Baia Mare (German: Frauenbach, about 80 km) or in Cluj (German: Klausenburg, about 170 km). Situated nearby - 15 km distance - are the Rodna National Park and Maramures National Park.

Botiza is an ideal place for nature lovers, peace-seekers, culture lovers, hikers and hunters. From here you can explore the Carpathian Mountains, undertake trips to the monasteries and wooden churches of Maramures or simply enjoy the country lifestyle and peace. Travelling and holiday seeking families with children are received with a warm welcome here.

A gorgeous panoramic view up to as far as the mountains of the Ukraine and the Rodna Mountains convey a feeling of vastness, wildness and tranquillity.
