Prince of Wales

Story

The Prince of Wales House is an enchanting traditional old saxon farmhouse with the oldest parts dating back to the 1700s. In 1998 HRH The Prince of Wales purchased the house via his charitable foundation in the U.K. The purchase was designed to encourage the preservation of Romania's unique architectural heritage, particularly after the mass migration of the Transylvanian Saxons to Germany after the collapse of communism.

In 2015, the house became the headquarter of The Prince of Wales's Foundation in Romania. An extensive restoration was completed to enable the premises to serve as a training centre for local communities. When there are no charitable activities, the house can be rented out as a guesthouse.

The house exudes a special sense of time and place, of history and traditions and pays homage to the century old history of its former inhabitants, the Transylvanian Saxons. We hope you will enjoy this eclectic mix of regional influences in the rich Saxon heritage in one of the most beautiful Saxon properties conserved.
