Travel to a place that time forgot. Count Kalnoky's family has returned to Transylvania after 50 years of exile. They set about finding ways to save their heritage and restore the Estate to its former character. Through the development of a unique tourism venture, the Kalnoky's are turning their vision into reality. Our guesthouses in the Transylvanian village of Miklosvar / Miclosoara date back to the 1800’s and before. The buildings have been carefully restored in order to preserve their original charm and character. The guesthouses are situated within spacious gardens, some with storks nesting on nearby rooftops. They have been beautifully furnished with antiques in the Transylvanian Szekler and Saxon styles. To ensure that our guests have a warm and comfortable stay also in winter, we have enhanced the original wood stoves by a hidden central heating system. The village has little infrastructure, therefore we cannot (and do not wish to) claim technical perfection. Some streets remain unpaved and pot-holed, so can become dusty in the sun and muddy after the rain. There can be no denying the rustic charm and original character, which offers an opportunity to step back in time, as if you were in a 19th century novel and had come to visit friends in Transylvania's countryside.

A typical mansion of the local Hungarian noble families, it impresses the visitor for its rustic elegance, preservation of traditional elements of the local style/both architecture and furniture pieces, and last but not least, live memories of the owners' intellectual pursuits and everyday life. Thanks to the guide, a very nice and knowledgeable young lady, we enjoyed tasting some delicious cookies and a glass of wine in the cellar - a very chic place full of olden-times stuff. After a very short stroll up and down the park,by a pond with waterl-ilies still in full bloom, we were sorry to take leave and get on the coach.. P.S. Quite nearby, nestled in the Carpathian foothills, in the Zaland valley, there lies one of Prince Charles' Transylvanian retreats.

We stayed here for a week in January 2020 and we loved it. We booked the all inclusive with activities and that seemed a good choice. This place is in a rural village with two small shops and not much else and is a great place to get away from it all and slow down. We stayed in the main house and liked the rustic charm of the accomodation. We loved the tiled ovens and traditional furniture. The food was excellent and local and wines very good too. It felt very special as we were the only guests for much of the stay, but could also see how nice it would be having dinner with other guests in the ‘wine cellar’. The activities were nice too with bear watching in a hide as an unexpected highlight. We loved the local Szekler culture and fortified churches. I think this accomodation is a great choice if you want to immerse yourself in the local culture and if you can live without TV and mod coms. We were initially surprised that our room faced the road but this didnt really matter as very few cars overnight. All staff were very helpful but unobtrusive. Sauna would have been nice but this didnt matter much either. There were lots of books/games to pass the time but would suggest you bring Chechov short stories Tolstoj or a Joseph Roth novel such as Radetzkymarsch if German to really complete the experience. Wonderful!

We had decided to go somewhere different , to have an adventure, to mark the 80th birthday of Paps! There were seventeen of us: the grandparents, the seven children and children in law, and the eight grandchildren - swooping in from Kent, London and Barcelona. I arrived the last after something of a dramatic travel mishap (which had seen the rest of the family go ahead). This unexpected twist though meant I took a long, old train from Bucharest (an experience in itself) and arrived in the black of midnight at Brasov Station where I was overjoyed to see the charming hotel manager on the station steps displaying my name and a smile. We drove through darkness and mist to the guest houses where I was showed to the blue house and where snoring children awaited. Beautiful rustic charm with upholstered chairs, crisp cotton bedding, wood burners to heat and outside the windows a black night of stars. In the morning as the sun came up and the mist lifted the whole family met at a huge breakfast table where the warm staff served fresh bread, pressed golden apple juice, jams, pickles, local cheese and mountains and mountains of eggs. We planned outings - on our own and with the guesthouse. We saw castles, went hiking, jumped into horses and carts to picnic in a meadow near the woods - where we were treated to a barbecue and then races in the carts on the drive home. Giddy laughter from us all as the horses surged home! We drove through what looked to us like Thomas Hardy’s unspoilt England - ending up at the Kanolky stables where the Countess taught us all (children too) about horses, and balance and closing your eyes in the saddle. Some of us rode out for a picnic into the beautiful woods and meadows where we saw an old couple hunting for wild mushrooms as we wandered up old tracks. Matyas answered our questions about this land, its peoples, its histories. In the evenings we sat in the cellar eating homemade food and drinking wine at a long candlelit table. Miraculously the eight children didn’t do much damage. We were all happy from the sun. We chattered around the table playing games, and talking about our favourite memories of the day. This is a familiar but faraway land of fields without fences, shepherds that live on the hills for months on end with packs of loyal dogs, forests that sprawl for miles around pastures, horses and carts on the roads, sour cheeses made on the hills, pickles, wolves, and cows with bells that ring through the lanes. We learnt about Szeklers, strip farming, bear prints, wild flowers, churches and horses. It was an adventure and a colourful haven.

If you want to find out the real taste of Transylvanian traditions and history, just go to this wonderful place "out of time" for a unique and authentic experience. Every detail in the rooms and the common spaces is chosen with delicate taste, from ancient furniture to books to handmade fabrics; the personal is nice and full of attention; the food tasty; the different activities well organized and very interesting. We had a horse cart tour with barbecue, accompanied by a young man who spoke different languages and answered with passion all our questions about the region. A unique way to discover the countryside, the woods, the wildlife. Afterwards, a lady showed us the Museum of Transylvanian life in the castle. The "table d'hôte" dinner, as the gorgeous breakfast, are special convivial moments to know the other guests and share the experiences of the day. Last but not least, Countess Kalnoky put a special attention in our demand for a customized riding tour and did her best to transform every moment in a useful learning experience. Absolutely lovely!

Oh my, where to begin? DH and I spent a week in the Blue House room #9 at the Count's Cottages and it was such a great experience. We truly loved it. We began by taking the train out from Bucharest to Augustin, where we were picked up at the station and taken to the inn. We spent the next few days alternating between day tours to different towns and sites, and going on nature walks and hikes. The guides used by the inn are top notch. We enjoyed fabulous local style cooking every day for all our meals, which we very much enjoyed. The count's wines are excellent. If you go, book the All Inclusive plan and really immerse yourself in this experience to get to know Transylvania.
