Richiș is “The land of Saxon magic”.
Well, Richiș is that magical village where culture, history, gastronomy, authenticity, nature & tradition meet under the same roof, under a unique Saxon Seal.
All the beautiful multicolor houses are still surviving after hundreds of years and they have an amazing story to say. Just looking at them you can see a story that was almost forgotten, but we try to bring it all back.
My Saxon house, Richis 22, is one of the multicolored, beautiful houses, that completes the “village rainbow”. Everything is made with love to make you fell at home.
The Richiș village is situated in the heart of Transylvania, being surrounded by the vineyards and magnificent forests. In the summer, the vineyards are making you feel like you are in Vietnam on the rice plantation 🙂
Richis is situated very strategic – 61km from Sibiu airport (1 hour driving), Târgu Mureș airport 61 km, Sighișoara 36km (30 min driving), Mediaș 26km (20 min driving). All those cities have train stations, buss stations helping you to get very easy anywhere, even to me 🙂
Richiș 22 is a beautiful authentic Saxon house. I try to keep everything as authentic, as possible just improving the conditions inside. I transformed the 2 pig barns in 2 magical bedrooms. These bedrooms are very special because are designed in the rustic Romanian way, with fireplaces. I love to call this “a romantic experience in a rustic romanian way”.
The other 2 bedrooms from the house are a mix of Saxon/bohemian creation. In the summer, the rooms keep a cold temperature and in the winter, when the walls become warm, is that perfect ambience of Christmas inside. We also have a beautiful spacious livingroom, connected to the diningroom, veranda or kitchen. “My kitchen is your kitchen”, you can feel at home, preparing any meal you like.
The house have also 3 bathrooms (1 shared bathroom and 2 private bathrooms). The garden is 800 sqm and is just that perfect carpet of green grass to walk with bare feet on. Some fruit trees are lost in the garden.
And the last beautiful thing I have is the big barn that was built in 1800, saved from the collapsing in 2018. Here is the perfect place to have a breakfast, lunch, dinner and admiring the beautiful wine heels. Richiș 22 is the place where you can find and reinvent yourself.
Here you’ll find many beautiful activities you can do in Richis: Bike rides (rented from Richis 22) to the nearest village, Biertan(6km). This village has the most beautiful fortified church in Transylvania, being classified as UNESCO monumente. In Alma Vii (6km) you can find another fortified church.
Hiking through the forest, you will find another beautiful saxon village, Nemșa (3km). On the road you will have the opportunity to admire the beautiful wild animals: deers, rabbits, foxes.
You can visit Sighișoara, the only medieval still inhabited fortress in Europe, that is just (30 min driving). Also, you can visit Mediaș (20min driving) or Sibiu (1 hour driving), another great saxon city which I like to call “the little Viena”. Near Sibiu, you can find Ocna Sibiului, a balneoclimateric natural salty lake in open air.
Richiș was once known like the “land of wine”. Saxons plant different types of authentic grapes from their motherland. So we still keep here the tradition alive, we are doing wine tasting. Is a unique experience that you’ll not find anywhere else.
The traditional saxon gastronomy is still surviving. That’s why we organize lunch/dinner (with 24h previous programming) in different houses in the village. We organize even the Picnic basket (minim 2persons) with all the authentic home made treats, using only local ingredients from the villagers. The fruits, vegetables, different type of cheese, bread, meat (depending on the season).
At Richiș 22 you can find the perfect combination between saxon wine and saxon gastronomy .
Richiș 22 has a little “Spa”, too. Here you will find a massage room, where you can take care of yourself. Only in the summer time we are open for this service. Usually, people, once arrived in Richiș, all they do is relaxing and reconnecting with themselves and with the nature. Disconnecting from all the stress and bad energy.
Is always something to do in Richis, do not worry.
