Transylvania winter holiday accommodation


No Snow?
We usually have natural snow cover in December, January & February. The emphasis for us are alternatives to skiing such as snow shoeing in the nearby woods and cross country skiing on the nearby meadows.

Transylvania winter holiday accommodation

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.


Our small enterprise provides employment for 14 families. Most of the food we serve as well as the building material we use is traditionally produced in the village and its surroundings. Our staff is now skilled in their new professions, be it the cook, the guide or the restoration worker. We aim at restoring and preserving the historic architectural harmony of our village and its environment. The guest houses are part of the village and our guests become neighbours to the villagers for the length of their stay. We show our guests nature still in its unspoiled way. We monitor wildlife around the village and make the villagers understand why it is so important to preserve it. We promote sustainable tourism also by limiting the amount of rooms available.

All our employees are local and benefit from high training standards. We purchase most goods locally, even traditional building materials like hand made tiles, bricks and lime. Our taxes go to the local council helping to develop the village. Profit generated by the guests is re-invested directly in the restoration of our cultural heritage. Thus the entire village largely benefits from our undertaking.

The peaceful ambience was the thing that will stay with me - although there was also so much excitement of course on the tours, new year's eve party etc. For a city dweller it was the perfect way to unwind and 'get away from it all. Read full review

B****y BRILLIANT!!! Only reason it is not 5 * below is because it is hard to decide if it the very best because all our holidays are different, but it is definitely up there with the best. Read full review

It was wonderful - we did four nights, which I'd recommend as a minimum as there is so much to see. Children were well catered for - ours were two and four and loved all the food and the adventures! Read full review

A real adventure! Transylvania in the snow is a magical place, and I can't wait to return in the summer some time. We were looking for some festive snow and were so glad to stumble across this on the responsible travel website. Read full review

I have rarely been so affected by a holiday, and we both feel determined to go back and experience this again. More than individual moments or outings, it was the whole atmosphere that created this feeling. Read full review

Horse and cart ride through snowy forests, across frozen streams, seeing foxes and birds of prey and wild boar tracks were most memorable. Also sledging a 2km run down to a frozen volcanic lake, climbing snowy paths up to caves. Read full review
