Enjoy a truly special time in the enchanting interior of the cabin or on its balcony. Immerse yourself completely in the outstanding natural beauty of the Transylvanian wilderness and take in the long uninterrupted views of the surrounding fields, hills and skies. In this inspiring rural setting, we regularly spot an abundance of animals including eagles, foxes, deer, wild cats and even occasionally the traces of a brown bear...

Gault & Millau Romania

In 2019 the Valea Verde Restaurant has received one of four bonnets by the prestigious French culinary guide Gault&Millau:  

"The Valea Verde has become a well-known Transylvanian destination not only as a guesthouse, but also for its authentic and gourmet cuisine. The team led by Jonas Schäfer offers a daily dinner menu of seven dishes, reflecting a modern, multicultural approach of the local, rural gastronomy.

Many of the ingredients are sourced from the village and nearby – the cheese from Manufactura, the vegetables and herbs. All to be featured in well-thought dishes, such as the ricotta raviolo with nettles, poached egg and a hint of truffle.

Wine receives the same level of attention, with a selection featuring both Romanian and famous international labels, as well as dedicated weekend tastings"
