I would like to introduce to you our company, Benetur SRL, in which I work as a manager. We have been on the hospitality market for 15 years, and our family’s 3 daisy classified guesthouse, Virág Panzió (Flower Bed and Breakfast/Inn) has the capacity to lodge the biggest number of tourists in the area of Coltau (Koltó) village.
Our company was founded to bring together and organize the rural hospitality in Coltau (Koltó) village.
We would like if you would see it for yourselves the experience and dedication we put into organizing trips for our guests, preparing delicious homemade traditional dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner; the way we organize dance and music evenings with a traditional folk band, the way we serve homemade wine and pastries, the way we arrange picnic parties, “mititei”, “bogracs” and “gulyas” stew-pot cooking, horse-riding, hiking…etc.
Koltó has been a place of pilgrimage for nearly half a century, and those who come here, seeing the beautiful countryside and experiencing the hospitality of the villagers, no wonder that are in no rush of going further. The village can be used for transit accommodation, but is also suitable for several days of stay, because from here you can easily explore the surrounding area, and even all of the Northern – Transylvania, especially Maramures, Satu Mare and Salaj county with their historical, cultural and last but not least natural sights which we recommend to you.
The wonderful countryside offers so much “five-star” monuments than need to be seen, that we do not even know which one to recommend. You can admire the vertiginous Maramures Mountains, the Gutin and the romantic landscapes of the Ţibleş Mountains.
In Baia Mare, Koltó and nearby you can roam on the footsteps of Petofi, the great poet, the Count Teleki or the artists of Baia Mare painting school. In addition to the natural attractions of the old village, one of the most pristine and untouched regions of Europe form their existence here. Dazzling wooden churches, eight of them is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, traditional costumes, village traditions, peasant life and living form of folk art awaits visitors even today.
In addition, it is appropriate to note that the village is located very close to Hungary, so feel free to come here even for a longer weekend as well.
We can provide accommodation for 100-150 persons in certified rural guesthouses, with two-bedroom and bathroom facilities, and high-standard conditions. In our guesthouse hospitality is a real cult, the guests are true family members. They can also taste the homemade delicacies of the village housewives, which are made of homegrown organic ingredients.
