Romanian romance

Transylvania is a fairytale dream with its 15th-century castle and sublime mountains, it is a holiday destination you won't forget

Transylvania might not be the obvious choice for a family holiday, but it really is like stepping back into the Middle Ages. Try a spell at The Machine House, a six-bedroom, rustic guest house set in sprawling private parkland at the foot of the Carpathian Mountains. There are mountain views, swathes of green fields, a large lake and even a castle dating back to 1400 – truly a fairytale setting for all the family. There’s also an excellent array
of children’s activities and tours of the local area, including natural sulphur caves – the only ones in Europe – to a day of bear watching. Seven nights’ B&B, return flights and transfers cost from £2,199 for a family of four.
