About Us

Welcome to The Saxon House, a cozy retreat in the heart of Transylvania. Nestled in the small picturesque village Garbova, our guesthouse offers a perfect blend of traditional charm and modern comfort. In June 2021, we undertook a careful restoration of the building, trying to keep the spirit and the authenticity of the original fortified house while also bringing it the necessities for modern comfort and the purposes we indented to give to this traditional estate

About The Village

 We are located in the Southern Transylvanian Hills, in the old center of the historical Garbova village. Only 150 meters from us is the citadel, one of the oldest in Transylvania, dating back to 1241. Behind us, you will find the Romanesque basilica, a fortified church dating from the same period. In the nearby forest, on the top of a high hill, the ruins of a 14th Century medieval fortress overlook the village.
