Discover Șura Sasului

The Saxon’s Barn was a dream and an ambition on which we’ve invested heart and soul. For the last couple of years we’ve been working on this beautiful project in the village of Amânaș, Sibiu: the transformation of Saxonian barn into a touristic facility.
Now you can enjoy the results in a relaxing holiday, far away from the nosy and populated city!


Originally built in the early 20th century, the barn served the property of a wealthy Saxon. After 100 years, only the barn remained, the house being demolished during the communist period.
After two years of renovations, we managed to keep and consolidate the initial resistance structure and create a beautiful 4-bedroom holiday inn, each with private bathrooms and a generous living room, ideal for long family evenings.


At Saxon’s Barn you will discover that each room tells a story and is unique in its own way. We tried to recreate the atmosphere of a Romanian Saxon house and we used decorations from the traditional households. Each bathroom is personalized with old objects from that period. You will gladly discover the old heating stove and the stone sink and you will feel you’ve travelled into time.
The living room was specially created for you and your friends. The evenings will be very long around the reconditioned oak table that seems to invite you to feel the forgotten natural textures and smells of the traditional dishes.
You can relax and enjoy the pure air of the area in the generous courtyard or on the back terrace.
The whole renovation was carried out according to modern standards with ecological materials. We managed to avoid thermal insulation with polystyrene due to the 50 cm thick walls, and the interior is paved with brick and wood.

In order to reduce the effects of pollution, the heating from the Saxon’s Barn is done with pellets and we use our own treatment plant.
In addition, you won’t have to buy water because the tap water is natural, extracted from a well drilled at a depth of 100 m.
