Top Solo Travel Deal Count Kalnoky’s Transylvanian Guesthouses:
The Count’s Guesthouses are set in tranquil Transylvania countryside. The location at Miklosvar /Miclosoara is ideally located to explore three areas. They are: the Saxon Land, the Szekler Land and the Carpathian foothills.
Transylvania is not just famous as the homeland of Bram Stoker’s fictional character, Count Dracula. It has Europe’s last untouched landscapes, well-preserved medieval villages, and has excellent food and wines to sample. Step back into a forgotten world that you probably thought no longer could be found in 21st century Europe. Relax in the luxury of simplicity.
Our guesthouses in the Transylvanian village of Miklosvar / Miclosoara date back to the 1800’s and before. The buildings have been carefully restored in order to preserve their original charm and character. The cottages are situated within spacious gardens, some with storks nesting on nearby rooftops. They have been beautifully furnished with antiques in the Transylvanian Szekler and Saxon styles. To ensure that our guests have a warm and comfortable stay also in winter, we have enhanced the original wood stoves by a hidden central heating system. The village has little infrastructure, therefore we cannot (and do not wish to) claim technical perfection. The restored castle (hunting manor) and its park are located at a short stride down the main road. There can be no denying the rustic charm and original character, which offers an opportunity to step back in time, as if you were in a 19th century novel and had come to visit friends in Transylvania’s countryside.
The guestrooms are furnished exclusively with antique Transylvanian furniture, including most of the textiles. All rooms have double beds with woolen and duvet covers. In order to create an atmosphere of peace and tranquility, the rooms do not have television or radio; instead, you will find plenty of interesting books on the shelves. Each room has an electric kettle, with tea and coffee provided.
Upon arrival, guests are welcomed with our Transylvanian brandy and home made pastries in the common drawing room, before being shown to their rooms in the cottages. In the evenings, everyone meets in the main house’s wine cellar for what has been described as a continuous dinner party with changing guests. In the warmer season, pre-dinner drinks are being served at around 7PM in the Stone Pub down the road. There is also a billiard room and a sauna within the lower houses. All gardens have comfortable deck-chairs and arbours with benches and tables. Transfers, guided activities and meals are available. Laundering is taken care of for a small fee. The rooms are equipped with kettles for making your own tea and coffee, and bottled mineral water is provided. We offer local produce and crafts to buy at the shop. The newly restored renaissance manor of the Kálnoky’s and its park are open to our guests.
Children are very welcome and the guesthouses are suitable for all ages.
All Inclusive’ – guests discover Transylvania by experiencing its countryside and its people. History is alive in unspoiled villages with impressive fortified churches unique to Transylvania. Traditional crafts are still being passed down from generation to generation. Nature-bound activities, including bear-watching from a hide in the evening, will get you back in touch with genuine natural environment. The location at Miklósvár / Miclosoara is ideally situated to venture into three of the most defining regions of Transylvania: The Saxon Land, the Szekler Land and the Carpathian foothills. We offer a number of cultural and natural excursions, one taking place every day of the week on a set schedule. In addition, we offer horse-riding treks for the experienced, or lessons for beginners at our nearby stables. The newly restored renaissance manor is open to our guests and you can dive into the clear water of its decorative pond in the summer heat.
