Saxon trail

Apoș - Stejăriș
After breakfast, as soon as the guests will have feasted on fresh cheese, water buffalo milk, pork scraps, tomatoes and other veggies from the garden, a new spectacular days is about to unfold. This time we will enjoy wide meadows and smooth downhills where sheep and cattle graze peacefully during summer days and only the dogs’ barking breaks the silence.

The Saxon trail takes us to Stejeriș (Probstdorf), where a small Saxon community is still to be found and is happy to share their stories with us.

We will go up in the Speck Tour and taste speck, green onions, oven baked bread and the local brandy.

Mr. Misch will exaplin all about this old custom of keeping speck supplies up in the tower and why Saxons were not allowed to touch their own supply until the first thunder in the new year was to be heard.

For those of you who are vegetarians, there is a variety of cheeses available.

After that we’ll a borsch at the cosy inn across the street and head back to Villa Abbatis for dinner, a night cap and a good night’s sleep.


Fee: EUR 110/pers (6h riding and 3h lunch, speck tasting and visit to the fortified church, entrance ticket included)
