We have returned today from a brief break with Di and Jez in their rural retreat in the heart of Transylvania. They are the perfect hosts and were able to send us off to interesting places each day, recommending restaurants (very cheap high quality food) when we did not sample Di's excellent cusine. We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis in one of the village houses and Jez and Di came down to cook breakfast for us before sending us to investigate the fantastic scenery and buildings that this area of Romania has to offer. On 2 of our 4 night stay, we had a delicious 3 course home cooked meal with free wine and pre dinner drinks. We then went into "The Lancaster" for more alcohol at very reasonable prices before walking back to our accommodation. The evening horse and cart ride that you arranged for us was an experience that we are unlikely to forget! We hope the horse has recovered!
Thank you both for making this a superb winter break, full of interesting facts and visits. Your pre visit emails were always welcome and full of useful information. I am sure you will be getting even more UK visitors now there are direct flights to Sibiu.... but the drive to Cluj was fascinating.
This is a very good value for money experience as Romania is outside the Euro zone and prices are amazingly cheap (£40 - £50 for a 2 course restaurant meal with wine and other drinks for 4 people! - just over £10 per head!)
