Babou Maramures

In Maramures you will feel like taking a step back in time; this is how old rural Europe must have looked like a long time ago.

Our hostel with campsite is located in the village of Breb, one of the most beautiful and traditional villages of Maramures.

Our hostel is made in a traditional barn with a common room and simple kitchen on the ground floor. On the first floor is the dormitory, with single beds. The dorm has great views over the village and surrounding mountains. From the balcony you can pick your own fresh apples right from the tree, or just sit back and relax!

We have also one tent for rent- this is listed as private rooms. In the tent, for one or two persons, you will find a double mattress, bed linen and towels. If you hire a tent, you're welcome to use the kitchen in the hostel.

You can also use our garden of approximately 7000 square metres, of which parts are used as a small-scale campsite. In the garden you will find chairs, hammocks and places where you can make a fire. Just find yourself a place in the grass or under a tree and enjoy the views all the way to Ukraine.

From our garden, you can walk into the fields, to other villages, to the forest and even up to Mount Gutai. The village itself is a real attraction: unpaved paths, tiny streets rolling up and down the hills, streams with wooden bridges to cross them, green fruit orchards full of apples and plums, horses and carts taking hay through the fields. There is also an old wooden church, lots of wooden houses with wooden gates, and great people who will invite you into their house for a homemade tuica.

If you have any questions about the region and Romania or you just want to have a chat, the owners, Matthijs and Eveline, both experienced travellers, will be there for you.
