Situated on the hills of Transylvania, between Viscri and Fagaras, the village of Cobor is surrounded by pastures and forests whose flowers, trees, birds and animals have remained unchanged for hundreds of years. The Conservation Carpathia Foundation's farm seeks to preserve this biodiversity through organic farming and livestock raising, activities that integrate into the existing natural environment.
Two of the three households purchased by the Conservation Carpathia Foundation at Cobor were converted into guesthouses, with a total capacity of 22 accommodation places and a restaurant. By renovating these Saxon and Hungarian houses, it was desired to preserve the specificity of the area, using traditional materials, but also having all the modern amenities of a guesthouse.
We organize farm tours where we discover the daily farm work routine, depending on the season, and the principles behind managing a biodiversity farm. We see horses at the guesthouse and learn about the grassland conservation activities.
