transylvanian inn

Villa & Retreat Centre


Mountain-side Retreats with
stunning Bran Castle views.

THE LAST STRETCH… To reach the Inn, the last part of the road is unfinished, dirt, rocks, and a little challenging for low riding cars. Yet the experience that awaits you at the end is peaceful, transformational, and well worth the effort.

And it all started with accepting a family dare… In 2001, on a family vacation, over a glass of wine. The idea of a family holiday home came up. And as more glasses were enjoyed, this idea grew to a B&B, then a villa, and ultimately a centre of excellence.

And in that same way, the Inn was built and has grown. From the first full year of trying to find the perfect piece of land, with magnificent views of Dracula’s Castle, and another 3 years to build the Inn from scratch. Starting with a modest 5 rooms, then to 10, then 20 rooms, then a conference room and restaurant.

And now the time has come for the Inn to shift to a full service Centre of Excellence, starting with retreats. With owner Alina currently running her own Leadership Retreats here, (for Leaders and Executives from London and around the world), and sister Laura managing the villa, this is one retreat location full of heart, experience, and deep understanding of the unique needs of retreat clients

Two sisters with a passion for sharing their Romanian Heritage and Hospitality with Guests from around the World.

The Transylvanian Inn was an amazing location for this retreat. Being able to remove yourself from the everyday stress and strains and base yourself in the beautiful Transylvanian countryside really allows you to focus on your development without distractions. Better still the villa has the most beautiful characterful rooms, wonderful gardens, and fabulous food to really compliment the intensive work happening each day. For me, the beautiful location was as much a part of the retreat as the individual sessions, I can’t imagine getting as much out of the weekend anywhere else.
