Of the handful of pensions near Sucevita Monastery, this one is most appealing. Only five rooms, but all feel like home. Walk 700 meters up the road opposite the monastery.

Pensiunea Silva

Sucevita 391
Located on the western edge of nearby Sucevita village, it’s an easy 3km walk to Sucevita Monastery. The hunting lodge motif here is punctuated by the gaggle of taxidermy critters that meet you at the door. Internet available.

Str Stefan cel Mare 80, Radauti
Just outside Radauti, this basic pension/restaurant has a scrubbed down, inexpressible charm. Follow the ‘Fast’ signs from Piata Unirii in Radauti, about 1km west.

Marginea 1435
Across the road from the AF Magopat Gheorghe ceramic workshop in Marginea, this is a lovely, if somewhat kitschy oasis of comfort, with startlingly nice rooms and an excellent on-site restaurant.

Str Garii 20, Vama
In Vama. Follow the signs with painted eggs to this large, two house property, 250 meters off the main road. Among the property’s attractions are a massive painted egg exhibit, with samples from around the world, and a small ethnographic museum. Rooms are rustic and simple, but clean, with shared bath. Breakfast, dinner and Internet included! The grounds are filled with flowers and a new covered terrace with grill is available for cookouts. Only Romanian and French spoken.

Casa Alba
Tel. +40 (0) 230 340 404
This is a seemingly out of place ultra modern and very comfortable villa about half way between Frasin and Vama, near Humor and Voronet Monasteries. Prices are about 10 euros cheaper during the off-season.
