    All about the Lunch at the Shepherd’s Cabin.

    Back to nature. Farm to table experience

    Not far from Sibiu, at the bottom of the Carpathians, lays a picturesque area with idyllic villages, valleys, pastures, forests and fresh springs. A trip in this area is like a wonderful dream that stays in your heart forever. Beyond the enchanting landscape, you’ll be fascinated by the wonderful habitants and their stories.

    The inhabitants lived hard times, but they were wise and hardworking. Breeding animals (especially large flock of sheep) has always been their main occupation. They were also skilled craftsmen… Even today, some of them keep preserving these customs and are always content to share their secrets.

    We invite you to a short and relaxing trekking tour in this area with a visit at a traditional sheepfold. We’ll meet the shepherd himself and listen to his amazing life stories and adventures up in the mountains.

    When talking about food in this area, there’s a lot to say! We’ll try some local products based on meat and cheese, all prepared and cooked at the sheepfold. That will be a delicious experience!

    In this area every day means a new experience, a new reason of joy and peacefulness, a perfect occasion to recharge your batteries far from the noisy world!

      Enjoy a few hours in the countryside, in the mountains, while having a delicious local lunch in an orchard. We’ll meet our guest, the shepherd and his family and we’ll learn more about life in the mountains.

      Our main challenge is to offer you only local products: different types of cheese made by the shepherd, local meat products, fresh vegetables and, of course, the famous polenta cheese balls – a sort of traditional Romanian cheeseburger:)
