Greetings, and welcome to my 9flats profile. My name is Constantin. I live in southern Moldova, in the village of Rosu. Rosu is approximately 5 kilometers (3 miles) from Cahul, which is Moldova’s third-largest city. My village is a convenient stopping point for those traveling to or from Bucharest or Chisinau.
At the moment, I live alone in my family home, but sometimes my mother comes to visit. I have 3 private bedrooms available, which are outfitted with couches and ample floorspace. A recently-renovated bathroom and kitchen are located on the ground-floor of my home. Free Wifi is available. I also have a dog named Gutsu, who lives outdoors. I am a non-smoker, and ask that you only smoke outside. I have a water pump which provides running water in the bathroom and kitchen.
My home has a large garden, in which I grow fruit and vegetables using permaculture principles. There is a table and chairs outside, which overlook my neighbor’s grapevines and the countryside. If the weather permits, I’d be happy to BBQ with you outdoors. Upon request and for a fee, I can cook traditional Moldovan dishes such as Mămăligă (polenta with sour cream and cheese) or hearty, fresh salads. I’m happy to teach you how to cook these delicious meals if you’re interested! :)
The city of Cahul is easily accessed via the local mini bus #7, which runs frequently to and from Rosu. A one-way bus ticket costs 3 Lei (approximately 0.15 Euro cents), and the ride takes about 15 minutes. Cahul has ATM machines, a modern supermarket, a fresh outdoor market, and several smaller specialty shops. Restaurants and bars there offer delicious food and wine, and the city's people are friendly. Cahul is a popular spa and health-resort destination and is also home to the folk music festival 'Nufarul Alb’ (which translates to 'White Nymphaea').
Here in my village Rosu, you’ll enjoy all that Mother Nature has to offer: sunny skies, fresh air and water, organic fruit and vegetables. Rosu’s villagers are friendly and eager to interact with travelers. Some of them even offer home-produced products for sale, such as eggs and wine. At my home, you’ll also have the chance to meet other travelers from around the world.
Guests sometimes refer to Rosu’s homes as ‘gingerbread houses’ because of their pretty blue exteriors and elaborate folk-art paintings and designs. Even the neighborhood water wells are decorated by hand! Each one is unique.
I’m happy to accompany you on walks throughout Cahul or Rosu, and might even be able to take you on a train excursion to meet my uncle and grandfather. In the past, I’ve even made arrangements for guests to visit an elementary school and the home of a local beekeeper. I’m also here to help you if you have questions about your onward travel in Moldova. I speak Moldovan-Romanian, English, Russian and Italian.
I look forward to welcoming you to my home! :)
