romania prince of whales guesthouses

Immerse yourself in a truly authentic Transylvanian experience nestled in the rolling hills and meadows of Romania. With a philosophy of restoring heritage architecture, the guesthouses are characterised by their loving restoration. So authentic is the restoration, that you will think that the building has been allowed to age gently and gracefully rather than having had any recent intervention. Stay in any one of the three beautiful, heritage cottages with rooms boasting elaborate, antique furniture and textiles. All rooms are equipped with a seating area, table, wardrobe and hand-woven woollen carpets from the property’s own workshop. Heat your room either with standard central heating or with the unique wood burning ceramic tile stoves in each room. 

Spend your days simply relaxing in the grounds of the retreat in one of the hammocks and deck chairs, surrounded by the abundant natural beauty of the Transylvanian hills. In the summer take a refreshing dip in the tranquil mineral water pool. Otherwise, head further into the wildflower-littered hills on foot to pick mushrooms and herbs, or on horseback and let the knowledgeable staff guide you around this beautiful, untouched landscape. Head into the woods and get the chance to meet deer, boar and other forest inhabitants. Or allow the local staff to introduce you to some of the skilled craftsmen in the surrounding areas such as glass makers, wood carvers and cheese makers. In winter experience the hills as a snowy wonderland and travel across them on skis or in a horse-drawn sleigh with the opportunity to have uniquely close encounters with wolves and bears.
