M13558 date back to the 1800’s, although parts of them are much older, as indicated by the presence of mediaeval shooting embrasures. The buildings have been carefully restored in order to preserve their original charm and character. The guesthouses are situated within spacious gardens, with storks nesting on nearby rooftops.
The guesthouses are beautifully furnished with antiques in the Szekler and Saxon style. To ensure that our guests have a warm and comfortable stay, we have enhanced the original heating system (wood stoves). The bathrooms are luxuriously equipped and decorated. A sauna and a billiard room are also available for the guests to use. Children are very welcome and the guesthouses are suitable for all ages.
Miklósvár is a remote village with little infrastructure, therefore we cannot (and do not wish to) claim technical perfection. There may be an occasional electricity failure; however, these are normally brief and rarely affect the enjoyment of our guests. The village streets remain unpaved and pot-holed, so can become dusty in the sun and muddy after the rain. There can be no denying the rustic charm and original character of the village, which offers an opportunity to step back in time.
Comfort is a priority, and we have paid particular attention to bathrooms and by building a sauna. Furniture is all antique and original. The heating system is also original, based on wood-stoves, and has recently been enhanced by a hidden central heating, still based on wood.
The rooms have neither TV, video, nor radio, but you will find plenty of interesting books on the shelves. All rooms have double beds with specially manufactured mattresses of pure wool and duvet covers. Each room has its own electric kettle, with both tea and coffee provided.
Bedrooms: The guestrooms are furnished exclusively with antique Transylvanian furniture, including most of the textiles. All rooms have double beds with specially manufactured mattresses of pure wool 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.
Bathrooms: The bathrooms respect western standards of comfort (hairdryers, floor heating, softened water) and are beautifully conceived. All bathrooms are private, most are en-suite (although the old Transylvanian village cottages were conceived without bathrooms). The sauna has been built by incorporating a vast old bread oven.
Common areas: Breakfast is served in a picturesque summer kitchen, where the food is prepared, or in the main guesthouse. Depending on the weather, lunch and dinner is served in the wine cellar or under the vine arbor in the garden. Other rooms for the use of all the guests include a billiard room (lower guesthouse) and a drawing room (main guesthouse), where you can enjoy local brandy (Pálinka) seated in comfortable armchairs in front of the fireplace.
45 km north of Brasov.
Winter is the most beautiful season in our village. It usually lasts from the end of October to the beginning of April. You not only feel to have been transferred into a fairytale, but also have the impression of time standing still.
But don’t worry, we’ll keep you active!
Skiing. During the day you can ski at Poiana Brasov resort. It is at little more than one hour’s drive, situated at 1900 m altitude with 13 trails in all range of difficulties, an average annual snowfall of 70 cm, 8 drag lifts, 3 cable cars, 1 skating yard, 2 sledge piste. The longest slope is 3.8 km long. Free shuttle will take you there in the morning and transfer you back to our cozy village in the evening.
Tracking in the wild. After snowfall our wildlife guide will let you discover the traces of all large and small carnivores and mammals and observe birds you might not see in other parts of Europe.
Horse-sleigh riding. We have several sleighs in our village. You will be taken for a ride equipped with a fur blanket and muffs for your hands. Our guests often see deer and other animals during their ride.
The ice gorge and cave. You can cross the river on the ice to reach the Pied Piper’s cave. In it’s entrance hall hundreds of man-high stalagmites of ice are growing, resembling transparent-blue shapes of children.
Snow-shoeing. We usually have such heavy snow, that hiking becomes impossible during winter. Our snow-shoes will help you discover our fairy tale landscape and wilderness.
Bird-ringing of wintering birds at feeding places.
Culture. And, of course, all of our cultural sites can also be visited in winter. Our vehicles are well equipped for winter conditions.
