"Short of shacking up with a villager, stays don't get more truly Transylvanian than Copsamare Guesthouses, where honey comes from the priest's bees, furniture comes from the neighbours, and decorations come from nature: dried nut leaves, maize and tree trunks."
Slow Cyclist

"At the heart of one of our favourite Saxon villages are a series of guest houses that are so charming we're never ready to leave. Fantastic food, luxurious accommodation and perfect peace and quiet."
