We are the Szabo family
Our story begins
sometimes in 1994
Long time ago, inside of us it was starting to grow the idea of opening our first family business. So, vouching with the building, we took a loan from the bank and opened a garment factory.
One acquisition now, one later.
Archia domain continues
We had the land, the factory and a team. All we wanted was to have a place where we could spend some quality time together, doing a barbeque, telling stories, be close to the nature.
What came next, it’s our family motto:
We say we’ll do it small and end it up big.
”Since we receive it, we should build a stable.”, said back then Sorin..
But they become stables with 13 horse rooms and another 10 outside.
More efficient, to build wodden houses. So we decided to build the Garden House.
Archia domain continues to change it’s look.
Why people would come to Archia?
Things settle down nice and easy. Virginia met Delia Ristovski, the talented designer which later became our god daughter and part of the family. Together they start to think the actual design.
Why we chose the name ‘Archia Mansion’
There are a lot of abandoned and neglected mansions in the Hunedoara county. We found plenty pieces of furniture and old interior decorations and we bought them from the people that didn’t use them anymore.
Our desire was to recover part of this lost and forgotten traditions and bring them in the present light, at Archia Mansion.
Every room name
is inspired by the domain
Poppy Room, Lavender Room, Forest Rooms, Horses or Equitation…
We also have some rooms
dedicated to the family!
10th of November 2008
we opened Archia Mansion
We opened in full crisis,
with no tourism experience
We like to fight for the things we believe in. We like to learn continuously. We like and we permanently struggle for things to be good. This is why we manage to overcome the beggining challenges and move forward with trust.
Some chapters from our story worthy to be mentioned:
In 2010 we built the pool and the ‘Poolside’ area for events. After that, two more events areas came in place: the ‘Garden’ pavilion and the ‘Chic’ pavilion.
This is why we wanted to bring in present the boyars life style, inviting home friends and business partners. We kind of know the people that come to visit us. With some of them we’ve been in touch, and with some of them we are going in holidays together.
The story goes on…..
