Experience rural life in Transylvania with us. Our guest house is a spacious, 100-year-old Saxon home which we lovingly restored over 2007 and 2008. We are located in a small, picturesque and unspoiled Saxon village at the heart of Transylvania. We offer hiking, cycling, and guided tours of the Seckler and Saxon regions of Transylvania.

Mein Aufenthalt war im Rahmen einer Reisegruppe, die jeden Tag in der Gegend wanderte. Wir hatten das ganze Haus für uns, entsprechend kann ich meinen Aufenthalt nur unter dieser Sicht beschreiben: Die Zimmer sind grosszügig geschnitten und geschmackssicher eingerichtet. Sie bilden, zusammen mit den anderen Aufenthaltsorten des Hauses ein Ganzes und lehnen sich doch deutlich an den einfachen ländlichen Stil des Landes an. Die Architektur des Hauses wurde respektvoll belassen und so ergibt sich eine schöne "Innenorientierung" mittels Veranden und Innenhof, die eine klare Abgrenzung zur ruhigen Dorfstrasse bildet. Dabei fehlt es an nichts bezüglich Konfort und Sauberkeit! Die Betreuung der Gastleute ist ebenfalls toll. Unaufdringlich aber immer präsent kümmern sich Steve, Natasha und Simona um die Gäste. Zu unserer Zeit gab es ein Wasserversorgungsproblem im Ort. Davon haben wir aber nicht viel mitbekommen, weil sich Steve zur Lösung der Probleme Einiges einfallen liess und wir dennoch immer genügend Wasser hatten! Wir hatten Halbpension und wurden reichlich und vielfältig verköstigt, uns mangelte es an nichts und das Essen hat sehr geschmeckt. Der Ort selber ist ein wunderschönes, ziemlich verträumtes Dorf! Freundliche Leute, drei kleine Bars/ Läden mit ebenfalls sehr freundlichen Frauen und Männern, die durchaus leutselig und sprachlich geduldig wirkten. Fazit:Ich würde da jederzeit wieder hinkommen und plane das auch konkret umzusetzen!

Steve and Natasha - the owners, together with the marvelous Simona, who is managing the place and cooking the yummy food, proved to be consistent in providing us with our second vacation experience, just as perfect as five years ago when we first stayed the Archita Guesthouse. What was different this time? Things are starting to move in Archita, which is now a more visible part of the wonderful "Fortified Saxon Church villages" itinerary. The church itself (you will have a direct view of it from your room, as the guesthouse is just opposite it) has been restored. At the guesthouse, an outdoor eating area has been added as well as a barbecue, and the barn has been appointed to serve as a great alternative for eating indoors/outdoors. . If you are traveling with kids, you might like to know that they have just put in place a playground with a swing, playhouse etc. Archita is unique, as a choice for our Transylvanian vacation, as it is still somehow "wild" and non-touristy, yet has a great church and a location that makes it fitted as a perfect base camp to explore the landscape of Tirnava Mare, with its Saxon, Romanian and the Szekely cultural heritage.

We spent a week in this friendly guesthouse in a quiet Saxon Village at the end of the road. Traveling by public transport it is nice that Archita has a train station. The atmospere is quiet and friendly and Steve, Natasha, André and of course Simona try to do anything to make your stay really comfortable (altough we didn't met Natasha because she was expecting her first baby - we noticed that 'backstage' she organised things for us). The cookingworkshop with Simona was really nice!

The town was off the beaten track, adding to the experience, and the guesthouse was a little gem! The food was very good, the service excellent, and the beautiful fortified church just outside the door was breathtaking! Mountain bikes available for exploring the gorgeous countryside. Loved it!
