The 'Castelul de Lut' is a clay hotel in the Romanian city of Sibiu that looks like a miniature castle.
The hotel was designed by the Romanian couple Razvan and Gabriela Vasile and sits surrounded by the Carpathian mountains. The beautiful mountainous views of this hotel, its rustic tiled exterior and its unusual shape makes it look like it is set in The Shire, the fictional region from the Lord of the Rings books and movies. The rustic hotel has ten rooms for its guests and was built with clay, straw and sand.
This endearing, environmentally friendly clay hotel would be the perfect escape for travelers and people looking for a natural weekend getaway in Romania.
