Saivan it’s an old romanian word that means „winter shelter for the animals”.

Sitting on top of a plateau overlooking the Moldova river valley with mount Rarau in the background,
LA SAIVAN *BioRetreat&Farm* is a special place, designed specifically for those who know how to appreciate unspoiled nature and life in a real, old-school yet alive traditional romanian farm, just like back in the day - but with all modern comforts.
A unique place, just 1 hour away from Suceava international airport.

The space
At LA SAIVAN *BioRetreat & Farm* you will be able to pick in total from 3 different traditional wooden houses dating back from the 1910’s, 20’s and 30’s, transported from different villages in Bucovina and rebuilt on top of the hill for spectacular views and peace.

Thanks to the 3 fresh-mountain-water wells on the land, the farm is a proper agriturism and on the property you will find horses, cows, sheep, goats, chickens, rabbits, pigs, cats and shepard dogs. And often, passing by, also our friends the fox, the deer and the wild boars.

All eggs, milk, cheese, meat, honey and palinka come straight from the farm, 100% Bio, and are made using traditional methods centuries old.
That’s the base of our breakfasts and of chef Lili kitchen, and the secret that enables her to prepare such delights out of the best traditional recipies from Bucovina.

The houses

Each of our 3 houses enjoys perfect views and exposure to all day sunlight,
as they all face south to the valley – so you can watch sunrise and sunset right from your porch while sipping your coffee or a glass of fresh milk.

This listing is ONLY for Casa Mica

Casa Mica – the small house – is the first house moved on the property, back in 2016, thanks to Mr. Sufla commitment. It was originally located in the village of Vama and dates back to 1926.
It’s built in classic bucovinean format and proportions, its interior divided in 2 large rooms with soba and fireplace, one of them with a stylish queen size bed, a large en-suite bathroom and a large mansarda with couch-bed, easily accessible via internal staircase. Sleeps 4 so it’s perfect for a romantic couple gateway, as much as for a family with 2 kids, or a small group of friends.

Please note that when renting Casa Mica you will also be able to use The Foisor, an open air full kitchen with a great BBQ grill, a wood oven, a wood cooking stove, the "afumatoare" - a small Smoke House to smoke meat and fish - and a rotisor. For some glorious outdoor cooking all together with your family and friends.

But in case you don't want to cook yourself, just let us know: Chef Liliana will be more than happy to provide you with delicious lunches and dinners prepared with ingredients fresh from the farm, for a small extra fee.

Besides we also rent Casa Mare(Big House) or both together(different listings).

As we are keen in offering a true back-in-time experience, the wooden houses were built using traditional ancient tecniques and even though they offer modern comforts such as electricity, central heating, running hot/cold water and contemporary restrooms, you will not find TV.
We are sure you will have more time and will be happy to disconnect and savour the truthness and uniqueness of the nature and the place.
Step back in time.

Please note that La Saivan sits at the heart of Bucovina, half way between the villages of Gura Humorului and Camplung Moldvenesc, so it’s also an ideal base to explore not only the region and its Unesco sites such as the amazing Painted Monesteries of Bucovina, but also for winter sports and activities on Mount Rarau brand-new Ski slopes, the longest in the country.

The human and anthropologic texture of the whole Bucovina region is also amazingly rich and alive, with every season full of folkloristic events ranging from amazing Easter traditions, to summer and winter colorful celebrations in traditional costumes, such as Obiceurile de iarna.

Open a door in time and get back to nature.
Welcome to La Saivan.
