I came to Moldova without much of an idea of what I would do or where I would stay. While searching online for a place in Chisinau, I was referred to Constantin. This alone shows the extent of his many friendships made near and far. Entering the neighborhood, I was greeted by his neighbor who guessed I was searching for Constantin’s place and brought me to the building. Constantin is an innovative and courteous person. He’s always looking at how to better his garden, his life, and the people around him. During my time there I learned much about the permaculture lifestyle and healthy eating. It was really a great place to relax and reconnect with nature. Cooking, working in the garden, and checking out the city of Cahul were all great experiences while hanging out with Constantin. I would recommend anyone traveling in Moldova to make a visit to Constantin. A great host and a comfortable atmosphere where you are sure to make a new friend.
Staying with Constantin was very nice, small house with sauna 5 km out of Cahul in a wonderful garden. Constantin is very talkative about his permaculture gardening system and loves to show you around in the region. also he is a good cook and offers dinner and breakfast. Highly recommended!
Constantin is a very impressive individual… Extremely interested and knowledgeable about sustainable horticulture in his modest garden with carefully propagated plants.
Great place to enjoy the Moldovan countryside! I visited Constantin and his place last summer with a friend and my dog. We had great time there! The place is very cozy. The garden has a lot of plants that Constantin explained to us. He is willing to talk about permaculture and Moldovan culture. Mamaliga cooked by Constantin and the shower in the garden MUST be tried!:) I recommend to make a stop in the village Rosu if you travel in Moldova! Constantin and his dog are great hosts!:)
Experience the Moldovan way of life and much more! CostelHostel is the best place to discover the life in a moldovan village, meet Moldovan people, try good food and discover a lot about the culture and the history. Constantin, the owner of the place, is an enthusiastic guy into a lot of interesting stuff such as vegetarianism, permaculture, sustainable tourism. He will make you feel like home and you won’t want to leave this place!
