By public transport:

The nearest train stations are Sighetu Marma?iei (Sighet) and Baia Mare. From both cities there are (mini)buses going to Breb (30 minutes from Sighet and 70 minutes from Baia Mare). The minibus will probably not go down in the valley, so like the locals, you will have to walk down to the village itself. But you can also give us a call and we will pick you up with our car (when the car is in the village).

From Cluj there are several buses and trains going to Sighet, but the easiest option is to take a bus to Baia Mare and continue to Breb by minibus (see below).

From Baia Mare there are buses going to Breb at 07.00, 11.30 (not on sunday), 14.00 & 15.00 (these 2 only mon-fri) and 17.00. They will leave you on the road on top of the village. From there you can walk down with the locals, or call us and we will pick you up with our car. The other buses from Baia Mare to Sighet will follow another road and don't pass Breb. If you take one of these, get off in H?rnice?ti or at the end of Giule?ti and hitch a ride to Breb. For a small charge (35 Ron) we can pick you up in H?rnice?ti.

We can also come to the train station of Sighet (75 Ron) and Baia Mare (150 Ron) to pick you up if you will let us know a bit in advance (if we are available). We can pick up a maximum of 3 persons. If you want transport from another place, please let us know and well see what the possibilities are.

There is also a new direct train connecting Budapest with Sighet. It leaves Budapest at 9.40 in the morning and arrives in Sighet at 23.12 in the evening.

Located near

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 home made tuica.
