Arad boat trip on Mures River
A boat trip on Mures river can offer much more then you could imagine. Have you ever dream yourself floating between earth and sky ? And being able to simultaneously touch them and the water ? Or racing with birds that fly through the trees ?
Well, indeed britghtly coloured bee eaters and sand-martins resembling giant bees will accompany you along your journey. And in spring and autumn don't be surprised if a half-a-meter long fish will suddenly decide to jump in your boat.
Sand banks surrounded by immense curtains of lush vegetation will make you believe that you have somehow reached the Equator. The sensation of being on a jungle safari will surely increase as you explore one of the islands with humid air.
Astonished by such mysterious and unspoilt nature you may expect to encounter piranhas and crocodiles. Relax ! No exotic carnivores bask along the sandy riverbank nor lurk through the bushes. Here the nature is only friendly and hospitable so nothing will interrupt your reverie.
Minis Vineyard Cellars - A Feast for the Senses
The vine growers call Minis historical vineyard “the last western ramifications of Zarand Piedmont”. Imagine a remarkable picturesque landscape with gentle versants, low hills and wooded areas. Then add two arrogant sequoia trees of over 35 m brought here since 1845. Well, each wine cellar from this region is a cherished expression of its location. And they offer authentic experiences that evoke lasting memories.
We distinctly hear a glass of red wine calling your name
Merlot, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cadarca are their stand out red wines. With intense vivid coloration these are full bodied but in the same time soft wines. By the way, did you know that from Cadarca they used to make the famous Aszu type red wine, preferred by the Habsburg Imperial Court ?! And it is all about the quality rather than the quantity.
Delight yourself with a sensory feast
This bespoke tasting begins as you are gently guided to a private dining room. Here a mouthwatering meal with wine pairings awaits. You will have the opportunity to sample each exquisite traditional dish complemented by hand-picked local premium wines.
What about a 5* pampering in wellness country-side retreat ?!
Take out the hassle of visiting a clinic for a perfect body. Here they mix precious ingredients - caviar, gold, pearls - they add a drop of wine, fruits, yoghurt, coffee or honey and find solutions for the beauty of your skin. They have also procured Anubis and Rejuvi products for treatments and thought how to extend the relaxation throughout the evenings: with an equipped to the smallest details, in-house cinema with 12 leather Reclyner type armchairs !
Whisked from the serenely quiet treatment room to the state-of-the-art steam room and back again you, you enjoy the extensive therapeutic massage with bamboo sticks followed by calming both body and mind with a honey relaxing massage. The techniques are focused on rebalancing energy flows to achieve a state of total relaxation. The practitioners who are trained in the traditional art of massage tune into your needs and help soothe you while balancing your body’s energy. Each unique session provides you with a wonderful opportunity to rediscover the real you.
