It takes courage to be an entrepreneur in Romania. And the ones that succeed always have a beautiful story. This is a story about a place and the family behind. It always starts with an idea that later on is developing into an authentic story. It all begun with an opportunity to buy a property, with the idea to build a family house away from the city and ended with a beautiful boutique hotel that is now the main accommodation option in the area.
We have been there more than ten times, with business or holiday purpose. And the feeling is getting better and better every time as this place has it all and deserves to be filled with guests all year long.
The old beautiful furniture, the signature of Conacul Archia
First thing to love about this place is the design of the rooms. There are no two identical rooms, each one having its own theme and personality. Clearly, an architect was involved in the design and this brings even more added value. Old furniture objects make the feeling even more intense if you consider the history they carry.
A place for all seasons
Definitely this is a place for all the seasons. Summer is great as the beautiful pool is inviting you for a swim, spring and autumn are perfect for horse riding or a walk around the property, winter has a particular magic if you watch it from inside while tasting a Romanian red wine.
Good quality ingredients with a gourmet touch
There is a well settled food menu, you will find plenty of options, from traditional to international cuisine dishes. All well cooked, with good quality ingredients and a gourmet touch. Try the duck leg, the beef and the soup of the day. Carol Restaurant is the best option as you are in a remote area, outside Deva city. You may find other options in Deva but we always choose the cozy option. 🙂
There are some mandatory touristic objectives any visitor should reach when coming here. The closest one is Deva Citadel, that is still in a EU funds refurbishment project but it can be visited. You must go there especially for the panoramic view over Deva city. Next one is Castelul Corvinilor, a castle from the 15th century, with a beautiful design and a spectacular bridge that takes you towards the entrance. It is located in Hunedoara city, at around 20 km drive from Conacul Archia. Something not to miss is Sarmisegetusa Regia, the capital and the most important military, religious and political center of Dacia before being conquered by the Romans. It is probably the place that is best related to our origin.
So no matter if you are a business man or a weekend traveler, Conacul Archia is a lovely option for staying and enjoying the area. Here you have the cozy family feeling, the fresh air, the good food, the basic experiences, the style & history, all in one place.
Conacul Archia, Archia village 92, Hunedoara County
