Petit Chateau de Palici, the place of memories...
This is the place for yourself. Straight away in the mid 19th century, a wonderfully restored century old noble Petite Chateau is overlooking the Carpathian hills and Buzau River, witness of the plentiful life of old times, with its 16th- 17th century collection of books and its much older cellar, functional fireplaces, epoch authentic furniture and art works, complete kitchens, all of them discretely updated to the nowadays standards.

The space
The building and the facilities
Petit Chateau de Palici is a unique private space in this part of Romania keeping the authentic atmosphere of the sophisticated life and environment of the traditional landlord’s family. Built by the best local foremen and correctly restored, it is nothing to be compared with and everything is remade in detail.
Quiet and charming terraces will wait for you in any part of the day, till inside it is cool, cozy and confortable, with luxury bathrooms and linen, with free access to the kitchen, dining-rooms, music room, main and secondary library, sale a mange and its old porcelain, crystal and silver dishes. Full kitchen and extra linens are usual.

There are wonderful places around for picnic, with all the necessary staff prepared by us. The place is the starting point for long forested car and motorcycle road trips, hard or easy, slightly interrupted by mountain villages and sparkling springs. You can anytime break the hard road and cross to the national road DN7, coming back to the chateau for a classical wonderful meal and a good wine….
Trips to the old amber mines and museum, to the incredible mud volcano , salt mountains and other manors in the area are available. Cislau herd with English thoroughbred and Ghidran wonderful horses is also a must. But wherever you go, you will wish to come back to the warm and sophisticated atmosphere of the petite chateau, as soon as possible.

There are three bedrooms reserved for guests, as follows :
1. “Montaigne” apartment, French bed, suitable for two adults and 1-2 children on supplemental beds, storage facilities, complete bathroom inside the apartment ( having its own fireplace, tub, all necessary and luxury specific facilities), the reading/ tea/coffee private room aside the bedroom, in the tower of the chateau, TV/internet free access. It is interesting and charming; very good view to …planet Venus (!) in the evening.

2. “Lafayette” bedroom, luxury and warm space suitable for 2 adults and one child, French bed, fireplace available, coffee table, armchairs and sofa, private bedroom with access to the hall (two meters from the bedroom door, itself having working fireplace, tub, all the necessary and luxury facilities). In case the family is really large, Voltaire, bedroom aside, can be “attached” in an apartment having a unique “Montaigne” (!) price.

3. Voltaire bedroom, more classical, intimate, suitable for 2 adults /children, having its own fireplace, coffee table and storage facilities, complete dedicated bathroom downstairs, tub, all necessary and luxury specific facilities, or using the “Lafayette” private bathroom, if the same family use them both rooms.

So, every room/apartment has its dedicated bathroom, and full access to all common areas. All facilities in these areas can be used. The Main Library has around 2000 works, from post-incunabula, to 16th, 17th , 18th and 19th century relevant books, drawings, maps. They are available, please only be careful, some of them are more than 500 years old…
For fire safety reasons, we recommend that you contact us to help with making the fire or at least to prepare the fire for you. The housekeeper is very quick to assist with this. To prepare food on fire, please use the outside or the kitchen facilities, and, if there are non smoking guests, in the common areas you can smoke on the outside terraces or at the open window.
Meal. You can bring any food, drink or beverage you like and in any quantities. You have a fridge and a freezer available. You also can pick up, at your convenience e.g. the food- meat and vegetables - cheese , wine, coffee, tea, bottled water and pay the exact price of acquisition from an always- reputable supermarket- Carrefour, Lidl others of the same category. But it is a pity not to use the local milk and fresh eggs- from the village, vegetables, for free from our garden or bought from the village, for their wonderful bio and taste quality. The gas/electrical cookers with oven are free to be used anytime. The housekeeper is always available to help you to prepare and cook good food during day time. But remember, you are in charge!!!!

The local shop is within walking distance and it sells groceries;
In order to stay in EU standards, we recommend to use for drinking the bottled water only. The villagers use the fountains and springs water too, but we cannot guarantee the safety of the natural sources water. The fountain of the chateau was drilled at 75 meter deep and laboratory tasted. It is a little bit colored by clay, so is a very healthy recipe for a skin treatment, by a good long warm tub bath, in front of the working fire place, but, however, we do not use it for drinking. Good to know that it is ....dunk by horses, the ultimate proof of its high quality(!!!!)
Connections
The access to the Petit Chateau de Palici requires a car. The last 4 km before arriving the asphalted road is continued by a pretty rocky and a little dusty road, so, the adventure starts! There are train connections also, but they are poor. There are 150 Km from Bucharest, around 2 hours confortable driving. Buzau town is half an hour driving distance. The medical urgency service is available at 112, usually they arrived in 20 minutes from the call. Cell phone signal is good from Vodafone and Orange, others too, but lower. internet signal works well upstairs, in the bedrooms and main library, and it is for free. The password is available.

Please expect very little interference on our behalf, unless you contact us with questions or concerns. If you need to reach us, we are always available via phone or email. The house keeper is available during day light. There are some Restaurants at distance of 30 minutes driving around. Local guides booklets/ cards and maps with local attractions and other useful local info will be available in the property or on request. Special mention for the hill of 300 modern monumental sculptures near an old monastery located on the hills to the other side of Buzau river.
