We arrived in this hiden gem of the beautiful Transylvania, were the work to preserve the heritage of the saxons it’s kept in very good condition! Here is the place where you want to spend a long-standing summer, to enjoy the simplicity and the silence of the nature. A lot of hiking in the beautiful forest around, and a panoramic view over the Carpati, from the Fetea view point! Perfect place to have your bike with you and start to discover the beautiful village’s from Transylvania! Highly recommended for the hospitality and the quality of attention for heritage, thanks to the impressive work made by Giovanna!
My wife and I enjoyed a magical experience at Copsa Mare. Our guesthouse was beautifully and sympathetically restored with a real eye for design. Giovanna the owner was wonderful, arranging outings including an evening picnic in a horse drawn cart. The food was delicious and was prepared by Simmona in a beautiful open plan kitchen/dinning room. We had a great holiday.
We stayed overnight at Copsa Mare whilst on a riding tour around this part of Transylvania. Joanna was a wonderful host, the accommodation elegantly rustic, the local food splendid and the whole experience very "high class" Romanian. Joanna also proved to be especially knowledgeable and passionate about the local architecture and culture. Very good.
Modern, beautifully refurbished overnight accommodations, traditional food, peaceful surroundings and great people to meet. The food is typical Transylvanian, with very hospitable and friendly locals. The facilities have allocated parking places, clean rooms and breakfast/lunch/dining facility, all located just across the street from each other. As a side note, all buildings and rooms have been restored to their historic image in accordance with governing European Laws for protection of historic monuments. Each house has own charisma and each is a unique marvel of interior design. I personally visited all of them and it took me about two hours to complete the visitation. The employers and the owners are very friendly and approachable. The town is located in proximity of Richis, Viscri, Sighisoara and Medias. With the rental car is about one hour and 30 minutes from Sibiu airport.…
Part of a group on a cricket tour with our wives, we stayed in the ten rooms in the village. Giovanna, Simona and the team could not have been more welcoming. Wonderful drinks and dinner in the main house on the first night; a pony and cart ride for aperativos up the hill for the sunset followed by a lovely dinner in an old Saxon house accompanied by a gypsy band on the second night; a meeting arranged with the village priest who does glass painting and produces honey; plenty of advice on villages, towns and restaurants. Beautifully appointed rooms...a premium price but well worth it.
I visited many villages, some famous other not so. Copsamare it is a dead end, it is very protected and uniquely silent As usual when u arrive in this villages it is hard to find places where u can rest after having driven around. Copsa Mare Guesthouse is one of the exceptional place where you can do that. The houses are all separates and you select a room. Together with a room comes a living room and a common area that has a chimney and a comfortable couch where to sit and read The is simply no noise...like europa 30 years ago. There is a quietness that makes your reading infinite The best rooms have a bath tub. Hot, steel and deep for a relaxing bath. Other have a small independent living room. We choose for an exclusive White House tariffs which is the basically the entire house for us 4 (two couples). This is a fantastic choice because you have the entire house for you and you can enjoy the stay Than we went for dinner at Simona’s . This is an independent barn that belongs to the Guesthouse where you have dinner with all the other guests Very modern kitchen in an original barn. Quite a pleasant surprise. Simona’s way of receiving is very familiar, very soft, and her food is very her’s. The gossip in town is that she has blended her traditional recipes with the ones made by Giovanna who is the owner. (She was not there when we arrive) Our advises> - Zacutsa (pronounced this way) as a starter - Chorba de Perisoara (a western version) as a first at night - Pork filet from the pork grown in the village with traditional Transylvanian potatoes We also tried the cheery cake, and the traditional nut cake with plum sauce (slurp!) It is not easy to identify the house where you do the check in. After that Simona take care of you. Call before arriving Go and visit the church and enjoy the long walks around the village. We also asked them to organize a pic nic for us. Unique simple expirience Ideal for a two/three day stay. There are many other villages to visit that are close to it and make Copsa Mare a good base camp …
This is the kind of place that gives you the feeling that you're at the same time both in 18th century rural Central Europe and in 21st century stylish urban Central Europe. When you're in the courtyard, it looks like the 18th century. When you're in the dining room, well, it's like a very cozy small restaurant (just for you and your friends) in a big elegant city in Central Europe. The food is absolutely delicious and Simona is a wonderful host. The rooms are designed with much gusto and everything is very clean. A perfect place to rest!
A truly beautiful place, away from it all. This lovely village is amazing, and with photo opportunities around every corner. The guesthouse is clean, very well maintained, and our host Simona was both charming and an excellent cook. Dinner was delicious! This amazing place is an opportunity to quite literally get away from it all :)
Four of us traveled from Bran to Sibiu and Copsa Mare....visited several Saxon villages, and stayed at Giovanna Bassetti's great guesthouse in Copsa Mare, incredibly clean, superb food, quite authentic , excellent service, much better than Prince Charles Guesthouses in Viscri.
Like a travel back in time where everything was less complex. We had a very nice time in Copsa Mare Guesthouse living a bubble with no stress. We were in the yellow house in kind of a small suite with one room with a child bed, a bathroom and a walking closet and the main room. The place to have meal is in the same old farm, beautifully renovated with a mix of contemporary and old furniture. We had a very good dinner prepared for us with typical Romanian dishes and the breakfast was really nice with home made marmelade! Overall a very pleasant experience, that comes with at a rather expensive price though.
