some photos of guesthouses in Transylvania!
Staying in a guesthouse in Transylvania Romania, land of Saxon
heritage, is one of the best choices you could make. Nice fresh
air, pure nature and quietness - everything is present to make
your stay in Maramures memorable.
The only sound you may hear in late afternoon from your guesthouse
is the one of the village: some far-away roosters, a cow mowing,
impatient to be milked, or children playing near the small rivulet.
When you open the windows of your room, wonderful hay parfume
is getting in.
All guesthouses have private bathrooms, running cold and hot water.
You'll be impressed by the cleanness of your rooms. Rooms don't
need air-conditioning - German style houses have outwalls over
One more reason for choosing guesthouses in the countryside for
our tours in Transylvania is great local gastronomy. All you eat
is homemade, based on recipes inherited from mother to daughter.
Most of food is organic - every peasant produces his own vegetables,
the cow is getting green grass or hay from the meadows. Even pigs
get corn or potatoes - you won't believe, but in the Romanian
countryside the are cooking for the pigs too!
For most of the crops peasants still use manor, the guarantee
of a healthy food.
Transylvania is renamed for its mixture of cultures: Romanian,
Hungarian, Saxon, even Jewish or Armenian.
A village in Transylvania is one of the best location to discover
live traditions, excellent food, but also a very special welcoming
spirit, which is missing more and more in nowadays.
Try to spend one or two nights in a guesthouse in Transylvania
(Gura Raului, Rasinari, Tilisca...) and you will probably be quite
sad living this paradise in the departure day to continue your
tour in Romania!
