“Country things are the necessary root of our life – and that remains true even of a rootless and tragically urban civilization. To live permanently away from the country is a form of slow death.”Esther Meynell

The Country Hotel 111

 Jane Austen would be proud. Better yet, I am proud too because I`ve succeeded in making some damage control regarding the self styled bangs.

Also, the Universe brought to my path the perfect dress. A wedding dress actually. Nope, not the itsy bitsiest intention. Nevertheless, a wedding dress designed by the talented Simona Bejan. The bind is my doing. I give me that.


Packed with this appropriate dowery I left Bucharest to find some mid week peace of mind at The Country Hotel in Harman, invited by the energetic and positive Marcela Cosnean.

The experience we had was surrounded in serenity, smiles and delicious cuisine. Marcela`s story is one worthy of novels. Spending half of her life in Germany and Texas, she returned to Romania several years ago and opened The Country Hotel – an oasis of authentic and high quality country living resort filled with fairy like decorated corners as you see above.


After you pass the `wow` shock you experience while visiting every room, Marcela invites you to breakfast/lunch/dinner where she serves the most yummy and healthy delicatessen. Many of them coming directly from her garden. You can then go and enjoy some quiet time by yourself or visit the beautiful surroundings.


 What makes The Country Hotel and your experience there UNIQUE


  • the special vibe of time standing still – the lack of fuss and urban craziness


  • Marcela`s atelier where you can find the most wonderful treasures from embroidered bed linens, to unique pieces of clothing, special gift boxes to home made comfiture – pear with mint or pumpkin with ginger are my favorite ones – or home made bio herb tea (a mixture of all kinds of therapeutic plants) 


  • the surroundings – hills covered with woods and perfect for long walks – the biggest entrenched abbey in Europe preserved perfectly at only 10 km. I`m not a big fan of medieval age but this one is really interesting to visit.


  • the food Marcela cooks – yes, it has a healthy, delicious and authentic taste which no refined restaurant food can replace.



I always get a feeling of empowerment when I discover new places like this in our country. It makes me believe in special people and places. It makes me believe that Romania has come to life. A new, beautiful, refined, serene and positive life.
