The ”Zölddiófa” (Green walnut) guesthouse from Transylvania, Covasna County, Bikfalva locality, lies just below the area of a beautiful forest, in the middle of a 1 acre orchard. It contains two buildings: one is a mansion built in 1801 (with two rooms, two bathrooms, a living room and a kitchen) and the other was built later, in the same style (6 rooms with bathrooms, a living room+bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen).
Our guesthouse focuses on a healthy diet and the environment from this area is perfect for this. We offer homemade food, prepared from our own production (vegetables, fruit, eggs, milk, bread, cheese etc). Our healthy diet started five years ago, when I was diagnosed with a dangerous type of skin cancerand I said no to chemotherapy and changed my whole life on the basis"help yourself and God will help you too!".
Thanks to this location, we produced everything we could, I started to bake leavened rye bread with sesame seeds and flax. I started to learn about herbs and today I am already producing some of them. I started oxygen therapy by taking long forest walks, even several times a day. Thanks to these I am totally fine. Our offers include: hiking on woody trails, a ride in a horse drawn cart, horseback riding, sleigh rides, mushroom picking, animal petting, chicken feeding, crop harvesting, gathering of herbs, bread baking with leavening agent, pig-sticking.
On request, we have also organized hunting experiences. This region is rich in wildlife. Our guests are considered family members, therefore tour guide and airport transportation is also included in our offer. We welcome vegetarians, offering the full board.
If you wish to relax, Bicfalau is the ideal place for you, with squirrels running around, the colorful world of birds, the smell of the forest. The Reformed Church Castle of this locality was built in 1863. Its defensive walls with battlements are from the Middle Ages. As this settlement was a former border guard, many mansions were built in this area between the 18-19th century.
