Whether you seek relaxation, indulgence, or a countryside experience in turn-of-the-century style, Zabola is your perfect destination.
Imagine a Monet painting with all its vibrant colors - that's Zabola when you press the 'random button'. The estate's general atmosphere transports you to the 1920s. Some claim to have glimpsed Hercule Poirot slipping out of the dining room.
Spanning vast areas of the Carpathian Mountains and forests, Zabola Estate offers an enchanting escape. The Castle Park, covering 50 hectares, has evolved over 600 years into an English Landscape Garden, blending various landscaping influences. The entire estate is directly accessible from the Castle Park.
At Zabola, we are professionals in providing a genuine countryside experience. Transylvania, one of the rare regions where true countryside persists, is best preserved and lived in at Zabola. Immerse yourself in the countryside lifestyle and enjoy days reminiscent of golden times when friends and relatives visited the Mikes family's estate for concerts, readings, exhibitions, and dinner parties.
