The dining and sitting rooms are situated on the ground floor. You are welcome to use the multilingual library, featuring works on local history, architecture, literature as well as tourist guides. The long evenings can be spent in good company savouring a glass of local wine in front of the fireplace.

In summer, meals are most savoury when taken outside. There are barbecue facilities and you can chop your own firewood. There are apples, cherries or plums to pick directly off the trees and we've counted 22 types of herbs in our garden. Children will particularly love our "treetop villa", complete with diverse interior furnishings and its own terrace overlooking the village.

Transylvania - at the crossroads between old and new, East and West

In Transylvania, the "land behind the woods" that nestles inside the Carpathian arc, there are countless natural and cultural treasures to be discovered. Life here is equally European-cosmopolitan and unspoiled-autochthonous, urban and rural, cultivated and uncontrived.

In antiquity, the settlements of the Dacians extended here under their kings Burebista or Decebal - in their capital Sarmizegetusa temple remains and stone circles testify, as in Stonehenge, to the mysterious mysticism of those times. In the second century, Dacia became a Roman province, which explains why the Romanian language is often described as a "Latin island in a Slavic sea".

Transylvania is a multiethnic and multiconfessional space. After the conquest by the Hungarians in the 10th century, Hungarian Szekler and German settlers, later called "Transylvanian Saxons", were brought in for the management and defense of the area. The Saxons built numerous fortified churches which also served as a retreat from invading enemies and thus form a unique blend of sacral and defence construction. Around 150 of them have been preserved, some of them are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Other attractions include the country estates and castles of the Hungarian and Austrian nobility, who built ambitious Schönbrunn or Versailles miniatures along with elaborately landscaped gardens. Owing to new initiatives in the field of soft tourism, many of them have been renovated and revitalised, hosting events ranging from high-class gastronomic experiences through music, theatre or film festivals to horseback riding. The fact that most cities seem architecturally, and often also culinarily familiar, is not surprising, as Transylvania was, from the 17th century to 1918, a Habsburg crown land and part of Austria-Hungary.

Transylvania also boasts exceptional treasures for hikers and nature lovers - in the karst and fold mountains there are hiking trails leading to caves, glacial lakes and mountain peaks rising to approximately 2,500 meters (especially recommendable: the Retezat nature reserve), with the largest primeval forest areas and the most important bear- and wolf populations of Europe.
