Local services

Maramureş offers a lot of small, family-run guesthouses, where you will feel like visiting some acquaintances rather than being simply tourists. The families on the following list spend the day both with household chores and their guests – they are part of old families from Maramureș, who have been living their lives by agrarian rhythm, have been taking part in religious and folk celebrations and have been actively taking part in the community they live in. If you spend time with them, observing them work or even giving a helping hand, you will find out how they draw their appetite for life.
