“The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams” according to Oprah Winfrey. I strongly believe that dreams come true if you put in determination and passion.
It is said that the most beautiful things in this world are born out of passion and Razvan and Gabriela Vasile are two Romanians who confirm this idea. They decided to make their childhood dream come true. They abandoned the hustle and bustle of a big city and devoted themselves to their wonderful project, which is the Clay Castle, a fairytale location situated in the Valley of Fairies, in Porumbacu de Sus, Romania, at about 40 kilometers away from Sibiu.
Romania is famous for its authentic and unspoiled landscapes and one of these lovely landscapes became the place where the construction of the castle began in 2014. Located in the middle of the mountains, on a riverbank, the Clay Castle seems to be cut out of a fairytale.
The foundation is made of concrete and stones and the structure is made of wood. The wooden poles of the house are plastered with a mixture of clay, straw, sand and water. The aspects I liked the most about the castle are the rustic roof and the two impressive stone towers. The castle is structured on two levels, the ground floor and the attic and it will serve as a pension when it’s finished.The final construction will include 6 double rooms, 4 apartments and a traditional restaurant which will serve organic food.
If you are already planning a trip here, you should know that the whole construction will be ready only at the end of the year. However, if you are in the area you should definitely stop to admire its amazing exterior and take a couple of pictures.
Add the Clay Castle to your trip list and I’m sure you won’t feel sorry for your choice.
