The Land

Located in the peaceful village of S─ârata, (elevation 420 m / population 373) in the county of Sibiu, Transylvania, Carul Mare is at the foot of Fagaras Mountains, with many direct paths to the Romanian virgin forest.

The natural environment is at the heart of everything we do and options for outdoor pursuits are nigh-on infinite.

Maze of walks, hikes, and bike trails meandering from the village will gently lead you to quiet forest glades and unspoiled ancient woods where wildlife abounds.


The Spirit

Carul Mare is an extension of our home and hospitality.

As a family, we share the fundamental need for taking care of and respecting the nature and people around us. Having lived abroad and traveled widely, Carul Mare reflects our influences and inspirations from our different cultures.

We are putting thought, attention, and love into creating our humble ideal campsite, to provide people with the freedom and tranquillity that we are lucky to experience there.

Carul Mare is a serenity place for sharing knowledge and embracing nature. It aims to propose a sustainable, organic, ecologic way of living, focusing on what nature offers us. It is a space to breathe, learn and discover, in harmony with the surroundings.
