Atractii turistice

Județul Gorj este privilegiat din punctul de vedere al locurilor pe care le poți vedea, fiind disponibil atât turism de aventură, cât și cultural ori religios. Comuna Baia de Fier, din județul Gorj, este una dintre destinațiile cele mai frecventate din Oltenia de sub Munte, datorită multitudinii de oportunități de petrecere a timpului liber. Ne oprim astăzi la cinci dintre motivele pentru care trebuie neapărat să vii la Baia de Fier.

At the Potters’ House boarding house, our aims are to preserve tradition without being outdated, to reinterpret traditional symbols but remain authentic, and to reveal things that have long been unspoken about. We drew on the best things our ancestors left us, but we would like to put our own spin on them.

We did not merely construct a building. Instead, we built a story, a place to live countless beautiful memories. We’ve also imbued the house with the heart and soul of our family – the things we believe in, the things we’ve inherited, and the things we pass on to others are carved both into our front door and in our souls.

The house – inspired by Neo-Romanian architecture and influenced by traditional houses via decorations used in various interpretations – invites travelers to experience the simple but comfortable life.

As we are aware of the positive influence of art on our lives, we make sure that behind every door there is a story conveyed by powerful traditional symbols.

Dincolo de fiecare ușă găsești o poveste, și am pornit de la rădăcini, prin aducerea în actualitate a unor elemente locale vechi, din Baia de Fier și Gorj.

Potters’ House first reveals itself in the EARTH room, designed bearing our origins in mind, then in the FLIGHT room, which tells a story of roots and leaving one’s nest. As you move upstairs, you will discover four rooms with meanings essential to human life: water, sun, moon and nature. Nothing is there by accident. Several pieces of furniture were exhibited in a special event held in 2020 at the Cantacuzino Castle.

Currently, the boarding house has six rooms with their own bathroom and balcony and multiple amenities. The lounge, kitchen and patio are brimming with personality and perfect to make new friends, either while basking in the warmth of the fireplace on cold days or on the patio from the first warm days until late fall.

Testimonials

I sincerely recommend Pensiunea Conacul Olarilor, for the place where it is located, close to countless tourist attractions, but also for its story. The owners are extremely kind and I got all the support I needed. We will definitely be back!

Marina

For us it was one of the most beautiful experiences, because we enjoyed the surrounding landscapes, hikes, mountains, monasteries and other tourist attractions that we visited and we were charged with the energy of the place.

Ștefan

The pension looks fabulous and I really appreciated the way the owners arranged things so that you can enjoy the comfort of today in an atmosphere that makes you think about the popular traditions and Romanian customs. You feel that you are closer to your grandparents, to your parents, who lived according to the rules imposed by the traditional symbols.

Ilinca

I appreciated the stubbornness for details, because I found out from the owners that nothing in the pension is random. The room is spacious, bright, comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. Our stay was completed by the beautiful places we visited and where we want to return.
