“Perfect family vacation”
Reviewed 15 August 2013

Mihai and Raluca created a wonderful and most welcoming guest house. My room had traditional Romanian village design as well as all modern facilities. It was very cozy and relaxing to stay there with my kids who could run and play safely at the guest house's yard as well as out.
The stuff was excellent, helpful and caring. Don't miss their dinners with very tasty home cooked Romanian dishes.
Taking a forest trip by carriage with horse exposed us to local people's lives. We also went to see cow being milked.
Viscri is a most interesting place from our Transylvania trip!

A marvellous place to visit. A true rural idyll, at the heart of a small and picturesque village. Viscri 125 is terrific - Mihai and Raluca are wonderfully kind and helpful, the food is fantastic, and the set-up is extremely comfortable and family-friendly. Well positioned for daytrips to nearby tourist sites (Bran, Sighisoara, etc.) but you'll also want to while away some time in Viscri itself, watching the horse-drawn carts coming in from the fields, relaxing in the hammocks at the end of the garden and generally chilling out. We'll definitely be going back.

We stayed for a fantastic 3 days. Very relaxing, great food and peaceful, welcoming atmosphere. The best experience of our Romanian holiday, thanks to Mihai and Raluca, who were the most gracious of hosts.

What a great experience. There are only words of praise for what Mihai and Raluca Grigore are doing with this property!! Clean and comfortable in every way from the sheets on the beds to the towels and shower power in the bath. The food is fabulous and the wine list superb! Everyone who works there is kind and talented in the ways of creating the perfect stay. Everyone went out of their way to make certain our needs were met even if it meant arranging a dinner down the street at a neighbor's house or contacting local excursion operators or artisans for special activities, experiences and / or shopping!! One of the greatest experiences of all my Romanian activities living in this beautiful and amazing country over the last four years. I will go back one day and hope it is soon.

Viscri 125 is set in the main street of an extraordinary Saxon village. In many ways the whole area goes back in time with wonderful hay meadows, hay carts, wild flowers and delightful landscape. Amongst this the B&B offers comfortable rooms put together in a 'modern country' way - it could have been in California!!!!!! Lots of hot water ,comfortable beds, food from the garden and local produce chosen for its quality (French butter though!!!). Great local wines. We were a party of 18 and they looked after us superbly. Very thoughtful and friendly hosts.

We have had the chance to find this place in a special moment of our lives: civil marriage celebration. We were a group of 9 people (parents, brothers and sisters all of them meeting for the first time). And although half of the group is from the region (1.5 hours apart towards tg-mures) we still believe this place is magic. Mihai and Raluca together with their 2 adorable kids are absolutely wonderful hosts. We immediately felt like we are a big family celebrating life, celebrating joy and living the moment. The rooms are just so so so nicely decorated that you could spend the day inside. The comfort is more than one would expect in the country side. Each morning was a celebration of the beautiful autumn colors, scenery and coziness.

The staff is excellent and above. The food is yammi, yammi, yammi.
The cleanliness is without doubt the best I have found in all places I have stayed in.

The truffle hunting activity is worth trying if not for the truffle it self at least to meet Cornel and his dog Matilda. They are the perfect team. You should also go cycling with Cornelus. The roads are a bit bumpi but it is worth it. And make sure you go to visit Pirasca neni and Imbre baci. They are doing charcoal -mangal- very close to Viscri. We went there by bike and I am now so glad to have met them. So so so glad!!!! It's a must have activity to visit them, see the process of making mangal and seeing simplicity of life in its pureness. Hospitality and welcoming are at they're best in this place.

Another must do is to visit the fortified church and meet Sara Wagner. And last but not least: stop by at Gilda for lunch or dinner. She and her family are great as well, while her food is delicious.
