Charmed by Romania’s beauty and rich heritage, Prince Charles bought several guesthouses in the country’s villages, which were later transformed into sustainable guesthouses. Nestled among the hills of Zălan Valley, the prince’s guesthouse is a 400-year-old, caringly-restored building, featuring five guestrooms, superbly decorated with antique Transylvanian furniture. To sustain and promote local agriculture, the cottage has its own vegetable garden and the dairy products come from the village’s cows and sheep. Every meal is cooked following old Romanian, Hungarian, and Saxon recipes, including vegetarian options, and is served together with a bottle of fine wine from the guesthouse’s wine cellar.
In the village of Cincșor, the former school and parish house have been converted into eco guesthouses, ideal for a countryside holiday. The classrooms have been transformed into four gorgeous bedrooms, a cosy chimney room, a fabulous library room and a dining area. The old parish offers five en-suite rooms, a spacious kitchen, a fantastic dining room, as well as a small library, all adorned with 15th-century murals. The flowers beds and vegetable gardens are the perfect playground for kids, while parents can savour a glass of wine in the old barn. Every day, the chef prepares mouthwatering dishes with fresh, local ingredients.

In a mountain village, between Transylvania and Bucovina, Casa Alexandra is a traditional holiday house with a warm atmosphere, certified with the Eco Romania label. Once inside, you really feel like you’re in an old house, while outside the garden, the outdoor pavilion, the grill for barbeque and the bread oven make you think of a traditional Romanian house. Ecotourism can be practised through bicycle rides, hikes in the surroundings or carriage rides.
