The Prince of Wales’s Guesthouse, Zălanului Valley
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.
