Mansions and castles where you can stay in Romania

Hidden in rural areas or in the center of crowded cities, mansions and castles with hundreds of years of tradition have opened their gates for those who want to experience bohemian life. We chose 5 mansions that we included in our routes in Romania.

Daniel Castle, Talisoara – Covasna county

Transformed into a 4 * hotel, Daniel Castle was built in the 17th century by the family of the same name. Located 60 km from Brasov, Daniel Castle is a good starting point for day trips to Baile Tusnad and Lake Sfanta Ana, located a few tens of km from the castle.

The castle offers 20 rooms decorated in medieval style, with beautiful wooden furniture and decorations, creating a perfect setting for a bohemian stay. The generous garden with terrace is a delight in summer days. The restaurant’s menu is prepared to the delight of any nobleman, with traditional dishes from Transylvania, accompanied by selected wines, produced by local wineries. The castle SPA is a surprise that we recommend you to try during your stay at the castle.

Haller Castle, Ogra – Mures County

Haller Castle 4 * is considered the first castle renovated and transformed into a tourist pension in Romania. The castle is located 22 km from Targu Mures and 9 km from Targu Mures airport. Built in the 12th century, the castle was nationalized in 1949, and during the 1990s: from school to bakery.

Since 2012 it has been introduced in the tourist circuit as a 4 * hotel with restaurant and wine cellar. Art objects from the time of the family that lived in this castle can be admired in the hotel, offering a medieval atmosphere. The generous rooms, furnished with solid wood will make you feel like a nobleman of the 1800s. Private events or intimate picnics are organized in the castle garden during the summer.

Vatra Inn, Costesti – Valcea County

Vatra Inn is located in Costesti commune, 6 km from Horezu and near Oltetului Gorges or Bistritei Gorges. The inn offers 30 accommodation places in rooms that honor the Romanian traditions. The solid wood furniture with hand-painted pieces bring a note of authenticity, together with the modern endowments of the present.

In summer you can enjoy a meal served outdoors on the restaurant terrace. Just 5 km from the inn you will discover the largest national park in the country, Buila Vanturita Park. Here you will discover the Bat Cave and the Woman’s Cave.

Maldar’s mansion, Maldaresti – Valcea county

Also close to Horezu is Maldar’s Mansion. Named after one of the captains of Mihai Viteazul, Maldar’s Mansion will take you to the boyars and princesses of the 1700s. The rooms, named after the personalities of those times, carry authentic historical furniture, beautifully restored and traditional carpets.

The mansion’s restaurant serves traditional Oltenian dishes, inspired by the boyars’ menu from another time, complemented by the variety wines, from the mansion’s wine cellar.

Mikes Mansion, Zabola – Covasna County

Mikes Mansion is the oldest of those presented, built in the 15th century, continuing the tradition started by the Mikes family. The Zabola estate, which covers an area of 500 hectares, includes a castle and four outbuildings, 3 of which are for hotel services. The area houses two lakes, four fishing ponds, a wooded area and meadows that invite you to relaxing walks.
