Welcome to our new Pura Vida Huts website. On this page we would like to tell you a little about our story, and hopefully one day make you part of this journey. We love what we do, and hopefully you will too.
I am Tudor, this is my wife Anda and our two beautiful daughters, Sofia and Eva. I am an entrepreneur and my wife is an architect but we are in no way your typical family,
we belong to a different breed, the world traveler one.
We love traveling and we traveled the world as much as we could. You can follow our adventures here.
One of the greatest event in our life, the birth of our daughters, did not changed that even for a little bit, even though traveling was a little difficult this last year:-)
Our Incredible Houses
We have developped several businesses, but the one that we are very proud of is this one: Pura Vida Huts. We are happy to present you the result of a couple of years of hard work and planning:
Our two wooden homes, the Hobbit Houses that we have just started producing. With the help of incredible artisans that master the secular woodworking tradition from the Bucovina area in Romania, we are able to offer you something unique, way beyond anything that you have seen before.
A Mix Between Old and New
Many of you don’t even know where Romania is on a map, and that’s all right, thats why we’re here for.
We are a country from the old eastern comunist block and we became a member of the European Union in 2007. Since then we adapt and align with all european laws and customs.
We hope that with the help of our tiny houses you will be able to discover part of the Romanian woodworking traditions and, why not, maybe you will be tempted to visit our beautiful country.
Bucovina, a small county in the northern part of the country, is an incredible land with incredible people. Here are some photos from what home is to us.
These are the last areas in Europe where tradition is still an important part of the daily life.
If you like nature and you want to see it as wild as it can be in a XXI century Europe, than Romania is by far your best option. The scenary, the food, the traditions and the people is something that must be experienced first hand.
This Is Us
I am Tudor, a graduate law student.
Before graduating, in 2005, I founded Elevate, a niche start-up company in the advertising field (advertising in elevators).
In 2006 I founded another company, “Dor de Bucovina”, a hostel in the Bucovina historical area of Romania, tourism being another passion of mine.
In 2013 I opened 3 new hostels in Bucharest and one at the Romanian seaside.
In 2015 I opened a restaurant, a beach bar and a sky bar in the old town of Bucharest.
As a result of my work I received various awards as “Best young entrepreneur of the year” or “Creative Young Entrepreneur of the Year”.
Now my journey continues with these amazing tiny houses. Join me and my team!
