Conacul dintre Vii

Conacul dintre Vii Hotel in Urlati, Romania is part of a manor house that was built in the nineteenth century

When one thinks about wine, Romania most likely does not spring to mind. But this country has more than just Dracula going for it. Its major wine-producing regions include Dealu Mare, spread over rolling sub-Carpathian hills on the same parallel as Bordeaux and Tuscany. In the heart of this unsung wine country, just an hour from Bucharest, Conacul dintre Vii provides an elegantly rustic retreat in a manor house dating back to the nineteenth century. Twenty-two guest rooms and suites showcase the building's original architectural features, while the wine cellar stocks homemade comfitures and pickles, as well as barrels of wine on tap, ready for tastings. Best of all is the cuisine, which uses the recipes of nuns from a neighboring monastery and incorporates organic ingredients grown in the house gardens.
