CALMNESS AND SILENCE
PROXIMITY TO NATURE
The Karak guest-house is situated in Harghita county, in Izvoare at the foot of the Harghita-Mădăraș mountains. It welcomes its guests every day of the year who would like to rest and to relax in a calm and harmonious environment, far from the noise of the city. The visitors can enjoy nature in every season. In spring we can admire and enjoy the flowering trees and the wild saffron in the green grass, on summer evenings we can listen to crickets’ chirping, in autumn we can admire the coloured foliage of the trees and in winter we can enjoy the beauty of the peaceful, snowy landscape. We can quickly forget about our everyday problems when we listen to the sound of the stream that flows next to the house or to the rustle of the leaves and the chirping of the birds.The Karak guest-house is a perfect place for families and friends who would like to relax and have fun and it is also appropriate for team buildings. The Harghita-Mădăraș mountains – the highest peak of the Harghita mountains and in Szeklerland - offer great possibilities for those who like hiking and winter sports.
The guest-house combines modern and rustic styles and the chalet – that represents an outbuilding – was built in an environment-friendly way. On the ground floor there is a spacious and comfortable living room and a fully-equipped kitchen with a dining room. There are 3 bedrooms available for our guests. On the ground floor there is one room (with a double bed) and on the first floor there are 2 rooms (one double room and one triple room). There is a bathroom both on the ground floor and on the first floor. In the outbuilding – right next to the the sauna – there is a special gallery room having two double beds. We can accommodate a total number of 12 guests in the two buildings. In the garden there is a summer-house with an oven and a barbecue, a large table and benches. There is also a fish pond. We also provide internet access in the whole area.
The guests of the Karak guest-house can use the traditional sauna in the outbuilding whenever they want.
What is the sauna good for?
Normally sauna helps people relax and it is also good for treating colds and it is effective in the case of allergic problems and eczema. Frequent sauna bathing can help in the case of recurring inflammation.
Due to the high temperature saunas make people sweat, so they can help detoxify the body of the toxic agents and they also reduce stress. It is good to know that saunas help us detoxify our body, they strengthen the immune system and contribute to the regeneration of the veins, they help us increase our metabolism.
