Reviewed on 14 Jul 2012 by Anthony Dennis CottrellThe most memorable part of the vacation was experiencing the laid back way of life, and being able to totally disconnect. We especially enjoyed the evening meals with the rest of the vacation makers, who certainly were not run of the mill tourists. They made for fascinating conversations. Read full review

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetOur Transylvania vacation accommodation provides employment for 14 families. Most of the food we serve as well as the building material we use is traditionally produced in the village and its surroundings. Our staff are now skilled in their new professions, be it cook, guide or restoration worker.
We aim at restoring and preserving the historic architectural harmony of our village and its environment. The guest houses are part of the village and our guests become neighbours to the villagers for the length of their stay. We show our guests nature still in its unspoiled way. We monitor wildlife around the village and make the villagers understand why it is so important to preserve it. We promote sustainable tourism also by limiting the amount of rooms available.
PeopleAll our employees are local and benefit from high training standards. We purchase most goods locally, even traditional building materials like hand made tiles, bricks and lime. Our taxes help the local council to develop the village. Profit generated is re-invested directly in the restoration of our cultural heritage. Thus the entire village largely benefits from our undertaking.
