You are welcome at Cobor!
Cobor Biodiversity Farm is one of the most beautiful ecotourism projects in Romania, a blend of high natural value pastures, biodiversity conservation, organic agriculture, an ideal destination for tourism and business and a wonderful place for horses and Transylvanian Grey cattle. Here, Foundation Conservation Carpathia laid the foundations of sustainable and organic agriculture over 500 ha of high natural value pastures.
This farm is a great example of how biodiversity conservation, traditional architecture and a profitable business can go hand in hand. This combination allows land use with very low impact and a focus on preserving and enhancing biodiversity. Several old dwellings have been restored and transformed into two cosy guesthouses, a seminar room and a traditional restaurant. Here, we offer our guests organic dishes, using local ingredients, produced by us or by neighbouring farmers.
An event organized by Cobor Biodiversity Farm and Nasul Roșu.
