We were in a short hollyday with the family and a small child for what was supposed to be an authentically transilvania experience with fresh food from the garden and also suited for small children, but it wasn’t like this: the food was tasty enough, but not from the private garten but bought from supermarket ( the bread icluded, even if you have a bakery in the village) and nothing to eat for a small child. The wifi is only in the dinnig room, an not in the rooms even if it’s said you have it everywhere. The rooms were dirty, i won’t start to describe ( pitty for the potential of the house). -The baby chair was during our stay not only once cleand! The land lady is sort of nice but pretty greedy and you just receive few light and no warming even if you need it. It’s sad, because the potential is quite big and could be a nice location. I don’t recommend it for families with small children.

The real Transylvanian experience starting from the location that is a typical Saxon farmhouse restructured with perfect taste, on to the food that is prepared respecting the original recipes, only with local ingredients some from the location’s garden. A special thank you to Michaela the perfect host that follows you with suggestions and advices that will make your holiday a total success!

The first thing that comes into my mind when I think back about our staying in August at this place is respect. In order to find the right property and to properly push the button on the doorbell me and my wife had to check the house number on several porches in the neighbourhood: our house had nothing to make it stand out in any way against all other houses on the street and everything to be in complete and absolute stylistic respect with its vicinity. We eventually managed to step into our courtyard. There we’ve met our host and got to know the perimeter a little bit, stepping on the bright green grass which we were still to find that can get even brighter in early mornings. At night, the hard-working tractor engines on the hilltops stopped, clearing the air for the cattle cowbells, the crickets and some lazy dog barks in the distance. All benches on the street porches have been cleared by now. The only pulse you feel is the one of the early night stars shining on a crystal clear blue sky. Everything we were to feel from our first night on — the taste of food, the smell of wood, the vibrant sun on the so many all around colours, the kindnesse and discretion of the people around us and the refinement of our host — all that we do and do not get to describe here will stay with us in the most authentically pleasant memory in a holiday we had so far. Convivium Transilvania is not the place to drop all clothes for a good old briefs-only sunbathe next to a large pool. This is not the treat to be looking for in here. Should you consider experiencing a genuine rural clean life cure in a Saxon house, well... at this place it may very well be as good as it gets.

We booked a room at Convivium based on the reviews, wishing to have a short brake and enjoy the nature. First of all, when we came, the yard was full of cars, with no places left to enjoy the sun or have a short walk. The room was nicely decorated, but it had spiderwebs and insects on the walls (same for the hallways). The pillows were very small and uncomfortable. We also had dinner - overpriced for the food offered and its quantity. The breakfast was a joke- 2 small recipients of jam (approx. 2 spoons), filter coffee, 3 slices of cheese per person, few slices of salami and grocery youghourt - Danone. The lady offered to make some eggs way to late - when we were eating jam. Moreover, Crit is so overrated - there is garbage all over, there were kids on the streets who asked us money, the peasants direct the manure in front of the houses and, thus, a strong smell is in the air all the time.

Authentic and stylishly renovated by the owner, Mrs.Mihaela, we felt at home. The yellow room was very nice refurbished,comfortable and quiet The hospitality with which we were welcomed in the special dining room and the DELICIOUS dishes prepared with local products and fresh vegetables directly from the garden of the house, will definitely make us come back. We strongly recommend it.
