Reichesdorf in Transylvania
Transylvania, better known as Transsilvanien, is situated in the heart of Romania. Translated literally, the region’s name means “Beyond the Forest.” And rightfully so. This scenic gem is embraced by majestic mountains – the Carpathians. Dense forests and gentle hills frame medieval towns and seemingly untouched villages.
One of these villages is Reichesdorf. The ideal place to let your soul unwind. To revel in nature, tranquility, and relaxation. To experience a farmhouse vacation. And to recharge away from the hustle and bustle, whether you’re traveling solo, with family, or in a group.
The Yellow House in Reichesdorf
Though showing signs of age, the yellow house still exudes its original charm. The rooms are bright and welcoming, lovingly prepared for guests. The spacious courtyard invites you to linger and relax.
In the evening, you can experience pure romance by a crackling campfire. And a visit to the vaulted cellar will enlighten you about Noah, the patron saint.
