Conacul Grigorescu – The neo-brancovanesc style mansion was built in 1930 by the great land owner C.C. Grigorescu. For many years the house and the surrounding land were used for a local wine and brandy production. During world war II Conacul Grigorescu was used as hospital for wounded soldiers and shelter for the local inhabitants. The mansion has been abandoned more than 20 years ago and stayed empty until 2011 when it was bought by our family. At that time, the mansion was inhabitable and partially destroyed. A step by step renovation was done with local craftsmen and local construction materials in order to recuperate the original structure and beauty of the mansion.

Conacul Grigorescu – today

Today, the mansion is completely renovated, our private house and head office of Terra Carpatica. The mansion is located at the entrance of the Buzau river valley, close to the Dealu Mare wine area and the Muddy Volcanoes. It is surrounded by abundant fauna and flora of the Subcarpathian forests and mountains and offers perfect conditions for artisanal food ideas from the Carpathian garden. Please note that the mansion is not a museum and cannot be visited.

The estate offers the following facilities for private events and artisanal food production:

Garden pavillion of Grigorescu Mansion

Casa Noelia 

The annex of Grigorescu mansion was used as garage and as venue for small private events (i.e. village weddings) during the 60s and 70s. In May 2017, a complete renovation and partially new construction has started in order to transform the annex into a traditional Wallachian country-style house. The renovation project drew a lot of attention to details like the wood work for the traditional Romanian verandah. The construction work was finished at the beginning of  2019. Casa Noelia hosts a delicatessen shop, a venue for private events (private dining room/meeting room) and 2 rooms/apartments. The attic of the venue can be used as children playground or workshop room. A beamer and large screen is available for team buildings or event presentations.

Capacity: Max. 45 persons

The garden and orchard of Grigorescu mansion provides the majority of products we use for private events and cooking classes: herbs, spices, tomatoes, eggplants, plums and many more. Everything is grown organically and without artificial fertilisers.
