European tour operator acquires historical Romanian resort

In Romania, the owner of the tourism group Eurolines, Dragos Anastasiu, has purchased the Valea Verde resort in Cund near the medieval city of Sighisoara.

According to Romania Insider, citing local paper Profit.ro, Anastasiu plans to invest several million euros in the area, and wants to continue investing in other hotel projects. At the resort, Anastasiu plans to develop an eco-chalet with 30 rooms, spa, and restaurant at an investment of €2-3 million. The investor also wants to develop a cooking school in the area. He will rely on European funds for all of these investments.

Last year, Anastasiu bought 50 percent of the Green Village complex in the Danube Delta and took over its management.

German chef Jonas Schaefer and his wife Ulrike Schaefer founded the resort ten years ago, when they moved and settled in Romania.
