Food & Drinks

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 ‘Black Transylvanian Bare Necked’ chicken. Eggs, milk, yoghurt, cheeses and honey come from local sources. All jams and preserves are prepared in our kitchens. The three-course meals with wine 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).

Dinner is usually served as ‘table d’hôte’ in the common dining rooms. The evenings have often been praised as a continuous dinner party and a stay at the guesthouses as if you were in a novel by Tolstoy and had come to visit friends in the country.
