Either you are Orthodox, Protestant or Catholic, you are the most welcome to experience the Easter in Transylvania – one of the best-preserved places in Europe.
Medieval towns, ancient Saxon villages, unique UNESCO world heritage monuments, and original traditions are waiting for you to join for one of the most important events of the year.

You are kindly invited in a rural retreat of Transylvania, one of the most "untouched" places, however with warm hosts, which will take care for you to offer a memorable experience.

Itinerary

  • Event presentation

    Arriving in the village: Sibiu and Targu Mures are the closest airports. Transfers can be organized on request from any other city. The transfers will be organized by our company, with cars or minivans, depending the group size.
    The little Saxon village is located at 25 km from Sighisoara and 20 km from Medias, in an idyllic landscape, surrounded by hills and forests.

    On Good Friday, after guests arrival, the hosts will offer you the chance to explore the surrounding countryside on a guided walk.
    The guide will be giving some information on the unique character of this ancient landscape and its amazing wilderness.
    As few places in Europe are possessing a bio diversity as special as our area has, a special focus will also be directed at this and the nature of this bewitching, mostly “eatable landscape”.
    Small reception in the evening, with a complimentary glass of Prosecco before dinner.

    Saturday morning a painting class will be organized, where everyone will be able to paint eggs in a variety of different traditions using some specific skills.
    After dinner we will then be gathering around a large bonfire.

    On Sunday morning all kids are invited to go looking for small nest of eggs and treats. After that, you are invited to a leisurely brunch featuring a great variety of different egg dishes!
    Traditional lamb dinner – slow braised local lamb braised for twelve hours in red wine…

    On Monday it is time to say good-by (after another relaxed breakfast).
