Romania – The land of fairy tales.
Transylvania means “The land beyond the forest” and it is. When you visit us on one of our all inclusive tours to Transylvania
[custom_button text=”Stay at the Village Hotel” title=”The Villa Hotel” url=”/the-village-hotel.html” size=”large” bg_color=”#006633″ text_color=”#FFFFFF” align=”right” target=”_self”]you will drive through some very remote forests and villages and see for yourself.
Transylvania – just the name makes you think of a far away place that time has forgotten. Where the main mode of transport is still a horse and cart and entertainment is a bottle of Horinca and some friends.[/one_fourth] [one_fourth]
What can I say, the home of Dracula. Nowhere else on earth can conjure up the feeling of movies you watched as a kid, as you look up at a full moon and hear a dog bark in the distance… or was it a wolf?[/one_fourth] [one_fourth]
Have kids who want to learn to ski? Want to experience a different way of life in a village like the one Santa visits in the movies at the same time as have the slopes to yourself during the day?[/one_fourth] [one_fourth_last]
There is a lot of myth and legend around the Gypsies of Romania. Outcast by society and blamed for anything wrong within 20kms of where they live. Come and meet them for yourself and make your own opinion.[/one_fourth_last] [one_fourth] [/custom_frame_left]
Maramures, in the Northern part of Transylvania, is a step back in time to one of the last remaining peasant cultures in Europe. Come and live in it and experience life amid haystacks and fruit-picking, away from the hubbub of cities.[/one_fourth] [one_fourth]
Bucharest is the last remaining ‘undiscovered’ city break in Europe with the best nightlife, the best looking women and no Brits abroad![/one_fourth] [one_fourth]
Cluj Napoca – Youth capital of Europe. If you like opera and the theatre, lazy days spent sitting in cafes in the sun and party nights, then you’re in for a treat. Cluj has it all, and is a few hours across Transylvania from the Village Hotel.[/one_fourth] [one_fourth_last]
The weather in Romania is great. Long hot summers and up to two meters of snowfall in the winter. Spring and Autumn offer perfect temperatures for hiking and crystal clear vision.

The absence of footpaths and restricted land encourages free roaming – a delight for adventurous walkers accustomed to the fenced boundaries of Western Europe.
Fortunately for the people of Maramures, Ceausescu had no interest in the mountain regions other than hunting bears, and so the villages in the Carpathians remain as untouched as they were fifty years ago, blooming with self-sufficient homes.
Below is the full HD version of the documentary “Wild Carpathians” with Prince Charles. It is well worth watching if you have not seen it already. Just click on the full screen button on the video in the bottom right hand corner to watch. The quality if very good.[/two_third_last]
