Accommodation at a guesthouse in Bucovina

Once upon a time there was in Bucovina…

There was once a family of worthy people who believed that there should not be a soul who had not at least once enjoyed the land of Bucovina, had not shared a pious silence in the monasteries here or had not left his soul to fly in the cathedral of forests that still look the same as at the beginning of Time. Everyone should enjoy the taste of the dishes, the authenticity of the traditions, but above all the warmth of Bucovina’s hospitality.

Like any story, ours had to have a special realm. And where can the Bucovina spirit be purer than in a commune that is not called Vama by chance, but because it has been for centuries a proud boundary between two worlds: that of historical Transylvania, where it derives its traditions of rigor, cleanliness and diligence and that of voivodeship Moldavia, where he learned hospitality, culinary refinement and orthodox humility.

Our guesthouse, CASA ELVIRA is located in the Suceava commune of Vama, right at the crossroads of the road that connects Moldova with Transylvania and the one that leads to the Moldovița Monastery. However, the road and the car are not the only option to find us. You can reach us by train, getting off at the Vama station, or by plane to Suceava Airport, located 50 kilometers away.

Although it is small at the foot of the mountain, far from the noise of the road, CASA ELVIRA is an ideal place for those who want to do religious tourism, because from here it is extremely easy to reach the Holy Monasteries of Bucovina: Moldoviţa (15 km), Voroneţ (20 km), Humor (25 km). Just as well, you can go to the pisc of Rarău, but also to TransRarău, the newest and most spectacular mountain road in Romania. Only five minutes away by car are two special facilities offered by the city of Gura Humorului: the ski slope and the covered swimming pool, with an Olympic-sized pool.

Our story is also that of a family made up of three generations of people who welcome you with an open heart into their home. It’s a story where children have their own corner, with a wooden fort, swings and lots of other things they will enjoy, but also almost a hectare of natural grass lawns on which to fly in the fresh mountain air. It is also a modern story, because we first offer parents a bit of sport (basketball, volleyball, table tennis) but also the generous space of a gazebo with an oven and grill or that of the dining room and bright hallways where they can socialize. Our story is also for gourmets, because a visit to our guesthouse means sharing some culinary wonders. We proudly offer dishes that are prepared according to old Bucovina recipes and use exclusively ingredients that we prepare at home or carefully choose from local people, from households that still have the craft of preparing things that you can’t find at the supermarket . Whoever tastes our mushroom borscht, our smoked meats and our affinata will fall irreparably in love with CASA ELVIRA.

As in any authentic romanian household, the holidays are a story in themselves. Our special programs for Christmas, New Year’s or Easter offer you not only a return to the Romanian traditions, so well preserved in our Bucovina, but also a permanent concern for the comfort and entertainment of the guests.

Your nobles, I mounted a saddle and told you the story like this. If you still believe in stories, we invite you with love, if you don’t, we invite you with as much love to convince you that a visit to Bucovine, at CASA ELVIRA is not just a vacation, but a real pilgrimage initiative.

Who is Elvira?

She is the keeper of traditions.

Elvira is the grandmother of the family, who promised to teach the young people the old traditions, culinary secrets and good old customs of their ancestors.
And he taught them well.
A family of worthy and benevolent people, three generations of warm people will know how to welcome you and make your stay wonderful.
