Spring time at CostelHostel is the perfect season to enjoy the magic of Constantins personal project - the garden. The entire garden is designed, and implemented, by Constantin, using Permaculture. This method allows a diversity of healthy trees, fruit, shrubs, flowers, vegetables and herbs to grow both in harmony and ecologically.
Spring signals the time for planting, seeding, weeding and the harvesting of fresh herbs. Constantin works solo in the garden, managing all aspects on his own, however, during your stay, if you would like to get involved in some gardening, Constantin will happily let you join in and teach you gardening methods along the way.
The beauty of the spring time is amazing, all the fruit trees are in a natural competition to have as many flowers as they can, making lots of summer fruits. Large numbers of bees are attracted to the heady aromas of spring, within the garden, and arrive in big groups to commence their work to ensure an abundance of fruit in summer. The fresh warm air of spring makes you feel creative and energetic. Nature celebrates these days new beginning and for a new life. Here, there is so much to see, to enjoy, to discover, of course you are welcome to travel to this little heaven in southern Moldova.
Summer time is amazing, berries, fruits are getting ripe, later and vegetables are coming for fresh salads that Constantin prepares. All the trees and plants are full of green leaves, that gives beautiful view. Days are sunny and warm, rain is coming here time to time and this moments are also great because air will be refreshed. Birds that live in the garden will sing their morning melody right after sun rise. Garden herbs and summer flowers give aromatic flavor that makes everyone to enjoy better this country side heaven.
