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.
