The Mansard House
Count Kálnoky's Guesthouses

The guesthouses, which date back to the 1800s, are situated within the village in spacious gardens.  Storks nest nearby and a little stream crosses the garden.  The houses have been extensively restored to regain their old charm and all the furniture is antique and original.  Comfort is a priority; particular attention has been paid to bathrooms, and the houses are equipped for children of all ages. The heating system is original and is based on wood-stoves, enhanced recently by hidden central heating, and there is a sauna heated from an old bread oven.  Please note that Miclosoara is a remote village with limited infrastructure so occasional power cuts may occur and the street may be muddy after rain.  In many respects this adds to its character.

The guestrooms are furnished exclusively with antique Transylvanian furniture, including most of the textiles.  Particular care has been taken in making beds and seats comfortable, and in creating an atmosphere of peace and tranquillity. All rooms have double beds with specially manufactured mattresses of pure wool and duvet covers.    Most rooms have an en suite bathroom, but as the old Transylvanian houses were constructed without, some guests will have to take a few steps across the courtyard to reach their own exclusive bathroom. However, we can guarantee a private bathroom for all rooms except for the Mansard apartment which is rented as a two bedroom apartment with one bathroom. All of them respect western standards of comfort with hairdryers, floor heating, and softened water and in most cases with bidets). 


Row 1: Restored Guesthouses in the lower village
Row 2: Main guesthouse complex and garden; Guest room in the lower houses; The Serfs' House







There are extra living rooms
and a playroom for
bad weather or quiet periods.







Each guestroom has its own electric kettle, with both tea and coffee provided.  The rooms have neither TV, video, nor radio, but you will find plenty of interesting books on the shelves.  However, a telephone line and Internet connection provide contact to the outside world from the main house if really necessary!





There are 10 rooms in total, two of them on the upper floor of the main 'Mansard' house which are often offered together as a family apartment, two new rooms in the 'Serfs' House, which overlooks the garden and village, and six rooms in two restored houses set in a garden in the lower village (a couple of minutes from the main house). The rooms in the Serfs House also benefit from underfloor heating were first available during 2006.


Dining chez Count Kalnoky

The cuisine at Miclosoara is mainly based on fresh, organic products from the garden or produced in the village. The bread is fresh from the oven.  Pesticides or chemical products are not used.  The menu also contains local dishes, combining elements of Hungarian and Romanian cuisine.  You will often have picnics during your trips and a full dinner in the evenings.  The meat and milk comes mainly from animals raised in the village and on its pastures.  Vegetarians and special diets can be catered for.  Breakfast is served in a picturesque kitchen. Lunch and dinner can be served either in the dining room, under the arbours in the garden or in the wine cellar.

You can also enjoy a selection of local wines and interesting books in comfortable armchairs in front of the fireplace. 





Children are particularly
welcome in Miclosoara.
The estate is equipped and prepared
to take care of them
and make their stay as enjoyable
as their parents'. Everything is
on hand, from children's beds
and chairs to a playground and
nanny to take care of them during
your adventures, if you wish.
They will be taken on a ride by
horse-carriage or sleigh,
discover the fields and ponds
around the village,
visit animals in the stables, etc.
Due to the lack of traffic and
open spaces this is an ideal
and safe environment
for children to play





Finally, the climate is that of a mountainous continental region; so don't forget warm cardigans for the evenings and adequate footwear for rough ground. Be equipped for adventurous activities according to your interests. Depending on your plans, you might want to bring boots (also rubber boots), warm jackets or overalls for the caves, binoculars, waterproof trousers, rucksacks, and so on.

After 50 destructive years of communism, the reconstruction and safeguard of Transylvania's legacy
consumes considerable amounts of money. The present "tourist" offer is meant to support the
efforts to turn our home into what it has always been before: a beautiful region, integrated into Europe.
