It all started back in 2013 with the goal of saving a traditional house. We noticed that too many beautiful old houses in Romania are being destroyed either by neglect or by poor renovation practices, like replacing the original window frames with plastic ones.
The goal of this project was to do something different - take an old house and bring it into the 21st century while preserving the original character.
CASA art retreat is about allowing everyone to live in a traditional house surrounded by nature, contemporary art, musical instruments and like-minded people. We believe that this setup can unleash the creativity of everyone.
CASA art retreat is located in a small village in the southwest of Romania, in the area called Banat Highlands.
The closest international airport is in the city of Timișoara, which was designated as the European Capital of Culture 2021 and is less than 2 hours away.
Another amazing city within 2 hours drive is Serbia's capital, Belgrade.
We are curating a list of other cultural events that are happening in the Banat Highlands (our area). You can see it here.
