Guidance for hiking trips in the hills is not included but can be booked; additional cost of 70 Euros per group available on booking page.
The only way to reach the village of Cobor is by car (80 km from Brasov). We can provide transfer from Brasov (both ways) as an additional service on the booking page.
The farm can accommodate up to 20 guests in 2 houses.
Bikes can be rented from Brasov or Fagaras to explore the beautiful surrounding area.
This is the perfect way to explore the surrounding area and also to see how people travelled in the past. Just sit and relax in the soft hay, while riding on the surrounding hills and admiring splendid views of the Fagaras, Piatra Craiului, Bucegi and Persani Mountains.
The hills around are rich many bird species and a colony of bee-eaters is nesting in a vertical clay bank very close to the village. We can show you where to go and give you binoculars or we can guide you on a birdwatching trip.
After we are done exploring the countryside and looking for signs of animal life, it's time to enjoy a delicious meal prepared by the locals with homegrown and locally sourced ingredients. And finish with a traditional Romanian drink!
The traditional method of pyrolysis is still used in Transylvania to obtain charcoal that makes for a great, tasty barbecue. You can visit the 'factory' and learn about this centuries old process.
I really thank you, my Romanian Friend! You have made my stay in Romania special memory. Romania has impressively beautiful nature and villages. I wanted to see real Romania and Iulia granted my wish :) Even horse ride came true while staying at a rural farm in Transylvania! I came from Tokyo- crowded, sleepless, the largest city in Japan. The life felt very different when visiting traditional Romanian villages. It felt calm, delightful, simple, traditional, happy.... :) that's what I wanted to see long time! Without you, my trip to Romania wouldn't be very different from the trip to other European countries. I fell in love with authentic Romania and will be back for sure. Murtumescu!
