Located 270 km (165 miles) from Bucharest, 80 km (50 miles) from Targu Mures, and 130 km (78 miles) east of Sibiu, allk three with international airports, the guest houses are situated in a small 'Saxon' village.
The village, dominated by the restored medieval 'Saxon' fortified church, is located in the heart of traditional 'Saxon' Transylvania.
The rolling hills of Transylvania and the ancient fortified 'Saxon' churches remain largely undiscovered by most tourists. Country walks, horse rides, cooking classes are part of the offerings. Nearby is the village of Saschiz home to the local non-profit ADEPT that produces locals jams and other food products.
Access by car from Bucharest, Targu Mures, or Sibiu is on very good and scenic secondary roads. The last 10-15 kms are unpaved.
