Transylvania is not only famous as the homeland of Bram Stoker’s fictional character, Count Dracula. It harbours Europe’s last pristine landscapes, well-preserved medieval villages, and produces some excellent food and wines. Immerse yourself in a forgotten world that you probably believe has ceased to exist in today's Europe. Experience the luxury of simplicity.

Count Kalnoky Guest Houses in the Transylvanian village of Miklósvár / Micloșoara date back to the 1800’s and before. Some of them are much older, as indicated by the presence of medieval shooting embrasures. The buildings have been carefully restored in order to preserve their original charm and character. The cottages are situated within spacious gardens, some with storks nesting on nearby rooftops. They have been beautifully furnished with antiques in the Transylvanian Szekler and Saxon styles. To ensure that our guests have a warm and comfortable stay also in winter, we have enhanced the original wood stoves by a hidden central heating system. The bathrooms are well equipped and decorated with taste.  A sauna and a billiard room are also available at the lower houses. Children are very welcome and the guesthouses are suitable for all ages, although there might always be few steps to mind.
The village has 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.  

The restored castle (hunting manor) and its park are located at a short stride down the main road. There can be no denying the rustic charm and original character, which offers an opportunity to step back in time, as if you were in a 19th century novel and had come to visit friends in Transylvania's countryside.

The guestrooms are furnished exclusively with antique Transylvanian furniture, including most of the textiles. All rooms have double beds with woolen 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 provided.

The bathrooms respect western standards of comfort (with hairdryers and toiletries), some with bathtubs, others with showers, and have a beauty and charm of their own.  All bathrooms are private, most are en-suite (although the old Transylvanian village cottages were conceived without bathrooms).

Common areas: There are plenty of areas where guests can meet, read or play games and also have their meals. Drawing- and dining rooms with large fireplaces are to be found at the main house at Miklósvár. There are arbours with benches and tables in all gardens, as well as comfortable deck-chairs with small tables. Miklósvár also has a billiard room within the lower houses, and a sauna. Not to speak of the Stone Pub and the Transylvanian Renaissance style Manor and its park that are open for access.

At Miklósvár the wine cellar, with its massive oak beams, stoves and central fireplace, dates from the 17th century. Meals are eaten by candlelight.  Guests dine together in a scene reminiscent of a page from a 19th century novel.  Dinner is served in the rustical yet elegant wine cellar as ‘table d’hôte’. It has often been described as a continuous Transylvanian dinner party with changing guests. The three-course dinners and lunches can be adapted for vegetarians at prior notice. We offer an exhaustive choice of fine Romanian and Hungarian wines.

We try to source and produce locally as much food as possible for our guests.
We have our own vegetable gardens. We breed the rare ‘Transylvanian Black Bare-Necked’ chicken. Eggs, milk, yoghurt, cheeses and honey come from local sources. All jams and preserves are prepared in our kitchens. The two-course lunches and three-course dinners are prepared as of old by the cooks who have been passing down the recipes for generations. We also cater for vegetarians or special dietary requests. During tours, lunch is provided at a restaurant or in the form of a picnic (if you are in the countryside ). Since 2019, our kitchen staff is enjoying additional trainings by the culinary team of Valea Verde restaurant which is well known for its gastronomy. We offer an exhaustive list of fine Romanian and Hungarian wines à la carte.

Upon arrival, guests are welcomed with our Transylvanian brandy and home made pastries  at the Stone Pub, before being shown to their rooms in the cottages. In the evenings, everyone meets in the main house's wine cellar for what has been described as a continuous dinner party with changing guests. In the warmer season, pre-dinner drinks are being served at around 7PM in the Stone Pub down the road. There is also a billiard room and a sauna within the lower houses. All gardens have comfortable deck-chairs and arbours with benches and tables. Transfers, guided activities and meals are available. Laundering is taken care of for a small fee. The rooms are equipped with kettles for making your own tea, and bottled mineral water is provided. We offer local produce and crafts to buy at the shop. The museum in the newly restored renaissance manor of the Kálnoky's and its park are open to our guests. Children are very welcome and the guesthouses are suitable for all ages.

The Stone Pub is perhaps the most archaic building in the whole village. Guests usually meet here for pre-dinner drinks after having returned from their excursions or activities during the day. Local Transylvanian crafts and produce are for sale in the shop. Guests enjoy a free drink on their first night. When the cows ring their large bells in the evening on their way home from the pastures, it is time to go to dinner at the main guesthouse. In summer there is an outside terrace.

'All Inclusive' - guests discover Transylvania by experiencing its countryside and its people. History is alive in unspoiled villages with impressive fortified churches unique to Transylvania. Traditional crafts are still being passed down from generation to generation. Nature-bound activities, including bear-watching from a hide in the evening, will get you back in touch with genuine natural environment. The location at Miklósvár / Miclosoara is ideally situated to venture into three of the most defining regions of Transylvania: The Saxon Land, the Szekler Land and the Carpathian foothills. We offer a number of cultural and natural excursions, one taking place every day of the week on a set schedule. In addition, we offer horse-riding treks for the experienced, or lessons for beginners at our nearby stables. The museum in the newly restored renaissance manor is open to our guests and you can even dive into the clear water of its decorative pond in the summer heat.
