The sound of the river in your ears, the treetops swaying in the wind and the scent of nature in your nostrils – there is one place in beautiful Lithuania that offers all of this and lets guests recharge their batteries: VasaRojus. The two sisters Kristina and Simona have created a domicile in their home village with their five special holiday homes where you can relax wonderfully.
A Yurt and four Domes form the VasaRojus. In the spring of 2017, the two sisters started the preparatory work for the construction of the Yurt. First, they looked for local people who could build the Yurt and make furniture. They did a lot of the work themselves. The first guests were finally welcomed in December 2020. The Yurt is round in shape, built from natural materials and has amazing windows that overlook the yard with plants, flowers and a small park with hammocks, swings and a mini children's playground, and the terrace overlooking the river release.
In 2022, four overnight Domes (one large and three small) and another Dome for events were added. The Domes are loft-like, so you can sleep upstairs or downstairs. There are windows at the top that offer incredible views of the sky and treetops. There are picture windows downstairs through which you can see the trees and a bit of the river as well as oaks and lawns. The Domes differ from traditional buildings as they are round. A lot of wood was used for their construction, which creates a cozy atmosphere.
Guests can feel like a small part of nature in both the Yurt and the Domes, as the rain, singing birds or the hooting owl can be felt indoors.
ArchitectureThe Yurt and Domes are built from natural materials, as is most of the furniture. In addition, they all have a round shape, thanks to which they can be easily heated in the cold season - therefore only a small amount of pellets is used for the heating season. The buildings and all the furniture, with the exception of the sofas and mattresses, are of local or at least regional production. Simona's husband did most of the building work and all the decoration she did herself with her sister.
FoodFor food, the two sisters partner with a local, family-run bistro bar that sources most of the ingredients from local, eco-friendly farms. Her mother also collects local herbs and flowers, grows some and makes tea. They buy honey from their grandmother's neighbour and put it in the kitchen for the guests to use. Most of the time there is food waste, but when it does the hosts give some to the dogs and what they don't want to eat goes on the compost which is later used to fertilise the plants.
The two sisters and their mother work in the VasaRojus. Also, they have employed a local woman and man to help them. Simona has offered yoga to local women in the past and plans to do so again in the future. She has also taken part in yoga exercises for disabled children and is always open to attending such events.
EnvironmentLEDs are used to save electricity. It is recycled, garbage is separated, plants are watered with river water and only natural products are used for cleaning. In addition, herbal fragrances were made for each house.
Well-BeingGuests can take advantage of a sauna, massage, butler service and yoga at the property. Sports enthusiasts will also find opportunities for cycling, kayaking, walking, swimming or horseback riding in the area. There are also plans for the future to rebuild an old sauna house for SPA therapies.
From Kaunas it takes less than an hour to VasaRojus (61 km). It takes a good hour to drive from Vilnius (83 km), from Warsaw about 5 hours (411 km), from Gdansk about 6.5 hours (505 km) and from Riga it takes about 4.5 hours (323 km). The exact address can be found on the website.
Unfortunately, VasaRojus is difficult to reach by public transport. There is a bus connection to Jundeliškių, but the bus runs infrequently and the bus stop is over a kilometer from the accommodation.
