Căluşeri (Székelykál in Hungarian) is an old Hungarian village in Mureş County, Romania, which still keeps traditional Szekler features lying at the Northern border of the ancient Maros Seat (county) of the famous Hungarian ethnic group, the Szeklers. As the well-known Hungarian traveller Balázs Orbán wrote in the 19th century: it lies in "romantic" scenery. The village lies along the county road leading to Sovata spa town (Szováta in Hungarian), between the Mureş (Maros in Hungarian) and Niraj (Nyárád in Hungarian) rivers, 19 km North-West from the little town of Miercurea Nirajului (Nyárádszereda in Hungarian), and 20 km North-East from the city of Târgu Mureş (Marosvásárhely in Hungarian).
The famous salt lake of Sovata, the Bear Lake, which is one of its kind in whole Europe due to its unique thermal characteristics, is only 40 km away. According to local legends the village already existed by the time of the Mongol invasion in 1241, but the first written evidence for its existence is in a church tax inventory from 1332. The sandy or clay-based Southern hillsides bordering the village are used mostly as vineyards and orchards.
The Akác Pension (akác in Hungarian meaning Black Locust) is located in the centre of the village, and it offers accommodation for 10 persons. There are two double rooms (with the possibility of introducing additional beds for children) with bathrooms and a fully equipped apartment suite with a large twin-bed in the dormitory and an expandable bed for two more persons in the living room. A large bathroom is also part of the suite.
The garden is just the right place for spending a nice family evening with barbecue, beer and wine. With this occasion guests are also welcome to taste the house's wines (Pinot noir and Feteasca, Madchentraube). At the end of September and beginning of October you are invited to take part in the traditional vintage, one of the highlights of the Transylvanian Autumn. During winter traditional Transylvanian pig-killing is organised on request.
