HRH The Prince of Wales’s property in Viscri
There are many farm guesthouses in which visitors are offered a rare opportunity to feel the atmosphere of these faithfully restored Saxon farmhouses. Meals are provided by the farmhouse owners, and eating in a cool Saxon courtyard in the heat of the summer is a delight – as are the home-produced meals (plus copious wine and plum brandy) that you will be offered.
One of these guesthouses is the 18th century farmhouse in the Saxon village of Viscri acquired by The Prince of Wales in 2006. The house was recently restored as a guesthouse to help promote sustainable tourism in Transylvania.
This traditional Saxon house is managed by Count Tibor Kalnoky, who was asked to furnish and prepare the house based on his experience in restoring his own family estates. Fundatia ADEPT can offer visitors to the house a range of activities and guided tours, so that they can discover the magic of Transylvania.
The house has been restored to maintain some of the atmosphere from its earlier life. It has been made comfortable enough for use as a guesthouse, while respecting its original character. There are three double bedrooms, two bathrooms and a kitchen as well as a terrace with benches and a long table.
