"Ever since I first visited Romania in 1998, I have been doing my utmost to ensure a sustainable future for the Saxon villages of Transylvania and their people. Tourism clearly has a vital role to play in this."
The Prince of Wales purchased his first Transylvanian property in 2006, an 18th-century Saxon House in the village of Viscri, and again in 2010 in the village of Zalanpatak. The wildlife surrounding each of the properties is diverse and the countryside offers various activities such as botanical excursions, hiking and horse riding, all of which can easily be arranged locally. The idea behind these properties is to help the local population to maintain their traditional way of life and provide a sustainable future for the people of rural Transylvania.
