Entering the cottage feels like stepping
into a Brothers Grimm fairytale. Stout oak
beams underpin the roof and rough plaster
lines the walls, while an antique ceramic
stove pumps out warmth and shuttered
windows peep onto the moonlit courtyard.
'You should be cosy in here,' says
Count Kálnoky. 'Don't be alarmed if you
hear noises in the night. It's probably just
the watchman stoking the fire. And, if not
– well, that should help keep out the
vampires.' He gestures to the doorway,
where a bunch of dried garlic has been
nailed into the plaster.

Transylvania's Medieval Tradition
by Oliver Berry)
The guesthouses date back to the 1800’s, although some of them are much older as indicated by the presence of medieval shooting embrasures.
The owner truly believes that to discover Transylvania and its people one must experience the local sights and way of life, visit its unspoiled villages and impressive fortified churches adorned with exquisite medieval frescoes.
To complete the area’s atmosphere
of peace and tranquility, each room
has its own small collection of rare books
but no TV or radio set.
Each room has an electric kettle and a good
selection of teas and coffee.
Fully functional wood stoves are used to warm the rooms during the cold season but
however, the room temperature is being
monitored by a modern heating system.
The bathrooms are luxuriously equipped and decorated.
