Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

Our Transylvania holiday accommodation provides employment for several 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 are now skilled in their new professions, be it cook, guide or restoration worker.

All accommodations have been caringly restored and furnished with authentic antiques and textiles from the region. Our philosophy of restoring is characterised by utter respect for the textures and atmospheres of ancient buildings. The way we restore derelict houses is barely noticeable, rather would it seem that the buildings have aged gently and gradually without recent renovation.


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.

People

The entire staff are as local as ourselves (the host’s family has been documented here since 1252 AD), as we believe it would make little sense to import expatriates into the ancient communities our very aim is to preserve. We therefore might be a little less professional, yet perhaps all the more passionate about what we do.

Our Transylvanian cultural, walking & nature holiday provides employment for several families. Meals are prepared on site by local staff. Most of the food we serve is traditionally produced in the village and its surroundings. We purchase most goods locally, even traditional building materials like handmade tiles, bricks and lime. Taxes are paid locally.

Our taxes help the local council to develop the village. Profit generated is re-invested directly in the restoration of our cultural heritage. Thus the entire village largely benefits from our undertaking.
