We are a small family, Roberto Paladini, an Italian originating from Rome, and Eleonora Sanda Cojocaru, a Romanian originating from Galati, and the two children Daniel and Eva, who share the love for the beautiful Danube Delta and for the simplicity and tradition of old life.
After countless holidays spent in the country, we decided to invest in a place in the Danube Delta. As we reached the edge of the reservation, we found a very quiet, nice and clean house.
We restored the place from a former house, keeping the specific architecture and atmosphere intact. We wanted to keep the tradition and charm of this old house. It was a team work, a beautiful work and an exhausting work at the same time.
Seeing as the House of Vechia Varvara took shape was enough payment for the hard work. Today it is what we wanted it to be, more then a home, a “museum” of old culture and a glimpse of the old country life
In 2017 Varvara`s House became Varvara Touristic Complex. We added 4 cottages to our complex, and we started a collaboration with a large online booking site. Now a larger number of tourists can appreciate this wonderful corner of the world.
We also have two outdoor swimming pools, we organize boat trips on the delta canals, and we provide our tourists with kayaks and bicycles. In addition, we decided to give our buildings roofs made out of reed. This gives the buildings a picturesque appearance in accordance with the traditional style of the Danube Delta. Using reed supports the local economy and culture while it gives a great interior comfort through its outstanding insulating properties.
