There are people brave enough to save inheritance from destruction, just for recreating the story.
350 years of history, 20 unique rooms, a gourmet twist, a cellarium slow down spa
Daniel Castle, in Tălișoara, Covasna county, is one of a kind place, having a beautiful, similar story. With 350 years of history, 20 unique rooms, a gourmet twist, and a cellarium slow down spa, it has all you need for an amazing weekend & a pause.
Here the owners are very involved and you will feel most welcome. You will notice they didn’t do tourism but they adapt and learn quickly and we salute this willingness.
The mixture of very old and the new kind of luxury and comfort
The rooms of Daniel Castle are wonderful and wide, a mixture of very old and the new kind of luxury and comfort. Constantinople Room, for example, is a must stay for history enthusiasts. Its walls are richly decorated with 17th century wall paintings, one of them also inspiring its name. If you love fireplaces, we warmly recommend the Castle Gate Room, where you can almost see the old gatekeeper getting warm by the fire. The Swan Suite has also an unique beauty. Enjoy a noble sleep in the king size baldaquin bed and sip a glass of fine drink while sitting by the fireplace.
For sure you must try the cellar (cellarium) slow down spa, used in the past for the storage of different valuables. Today it is a oasis of tranquility, purification and regeneration. There are different types of water and temperature inside, traditional remedies, relaxing spa facilities.
Finest traditional recipes from Transylvania
The food here is great as the Castle’s cuisine relies on the finest traditional recipes from Transylvania, prepared according to the standards of modern gastronomy. They will offer you a 3 course selection. Try the traditional goulash, the túrós puliszka, a delicious creamy reinterpretation of a traditional shephard’s dish, or the lettuce soup that involves 5 hours of attention to transform a poor’s meal to a fine dish.
The wine selection has beautiful authentic Romanian varieties, as well as surprising elements from Hungary.
Here you can choose many kinds of tours and activities, in order to find out
more about the region and its untouched beauty, for example: The Traditional Crafts Day, meeting a traditional blacksmith and find out his story, adventures in Vargyas Gorge, off-road adventures, rent a bike or horse riding. Also visit Kalnoky Museum, Daniel Castle from Vârghiș and The Fortified Church from Aita Mare.
And a must: visiting Daniel Castle from Vârghiș, the official Daniel Castle back in the days, today in ruin. Besides the sad story of the place, imagine its beautiful bright days, its different architectural styles and its amazing, green, wide park, surrounded by grandiose trees. We really hope and believe that one day the castle will become again what it should have been for centuries.
Walk around the villages, see the old houses, castles and churches. Who knows? Maybe one day you will buy a property here and create your own rebirth story.
