Responsible tourism: Transylvania farm and guesthouse

Environment

This farm is an initiative of Foundation Conservation Carpathia. The Carpathian Mountains form some of the largest contiguous forests on the continent with the highest percentage of virgin woodlands. They contain an extraordinarily high number of species, amongst them many autochthonous species, and they are home to the largest European populations of large carnivores.

FCC has been active in protecting and restoring forests on the south-eastern slopes of the Fagaras Mountains since 2009. The Foundation aims to create a world-class wilderness reserve in the Southern Romanian Carpathians, large enough to support significant numbers of large carnivores and to allow evolutionary processes to happen. The project consists of the wider Fagaras Mountains Natura 2000 site, Piatra Craiului National Park and Leaota Mountain and forms a total of over 250,000 ha. Guests are kindly asked to contribute with a voluntary donation to our CARPATHIA conservation project to help us with this work.

We think farm stay holidays are a great way to explore the Transylvanian countryside and are much lower impact than staying at chain hotels, for example. The activities we offer are focused on exploring the surrounding nature and its biodiversity, often going on roads and paths that are not part of touristic routs. We make sure all of our activities have a positive impact on the environment.

Community

The employees of our guesthouse all come from the village we are based in, we offer them a stable work place and good working conditions. We support them in learning more in their respective fields, be it the stables or the kitchen.

We use mainly locally produced organic food in our kitchen. People in Cobor generally do not use pesticides or artificial fertilisers, and the livestock is still kept the old way: outside on the pastures. Our own garden delivers fresh onions, salad, zucchini, tomatoes, peppers, berries, peas, beans, and many more vegetables and fruits. Other food such as milk, eggs, honey, potatoes, lamb, and veal is bought from the farmers in the neighbourhood. We make sure the whole community is involved, especially when organising bigger events, like brunches or bike tours.

During the summer we also often recommend other guesthouses in the area and we always include the opportunity to visit towns and mountain villages which helps further to support local businesses.
