Transylvania Countryside

In the middle of Romania, surrounded by the Carpathian Mountains, lays Transylvania (the land beyond the forests). Its fertile fields, its alluring wild nature, its architectonic patrimony, its spiritual and courteous inhabitants and its ancestral traditions – they have all contributed to the fame of this territory.

Prince Charles of Great Britain used to say about Transylvania: It seems to me in Transylvania there is a combination of the natural ecosystem with a human cultural system. This extraordinarily unique integrated relationship is so hugely important. People are yearning for that sense of belonging and identity and meaning.

Thus, we invite you to discover Transylvania countryside with us and live an unforgettable experience!

Life at the sheepfold

We invite you to have a unique experience in the area called Marginimea Sibiului!
This area, formed by 18 traditional Romanian villages, is located in the Cindrel Mountains at the border between Transylvania and South Romania (Wallachia).

The main occupation of the inhabitants has always been animal breeding (sheep, cows, goats). Today, big flocks of sheep join together in May and go up, in the mountains, and stay there till the first signs of winter, in October. Up there, at the sheepfold, the shepherds milk the sheep daily and prepare different dairy products. The various types of cheese and meat produced in this area are famous all over Romania.

We suggest you a trekking tour in the mountains and a visit at a traditional sheepfold, of course, with a special lunch joined by our delicious wine and plum brandy.

For those who cannot walk that much but would like to have such a great experience, we can organize the visit at a sheepfold closer to Sibiu.
