Work, downtime, adventure.
Be it a yoga retreat, photography workshop or a seminar in watercolor painting, conferences, business meetings or training workshops – Valea Verde’s tranquil but inspiring atmosphere provides the perfect backdrop for you to achieve your goals.
In the peaceful setting of the tiny Transylvanian village of Cund, we welcome guests in carefully restored Saxon houses at the award winning Valea Verde Resort. The resort is set in large open grounds with fabulous views of the surrounding Transylvanian Wilderness and offers plenty of outdoor space and several smaler areas and rooms to retreat to.
Having seen a growing demand for meetings, workshops and team-buildings to take place in a different setting than the regular boardroom or in the traditional hotel, we now offer a fully equipped meeting room to our guests. We provide groups with tailor-made complete packages including accommodation, food & wine experiences, meetings facilities, qualified professional specialists and a wide range of activities.
Though located in a nice old Saxon house, you will find all necessary technical amenities at your disposal, a small catering kitchen as well as two bathrooms. For coffee breaks, you may use the landscaped yard with its nice lawn and terrace. We can develop personalised solutions for whatever challenges your team wants to embrace – experienced and qualified guides and trainers will be there to implement and support your wishes.
Outdoor experiences make use of Transylvania’s amazing countryside where team members do not only learn to understand themselves, the ones next to them or the entire team better, but also develop one’s connection to nature!
In Cund, we believe you can connect on many levels with all your senses and have productive and memorable experiences!
Please feel free to contact us for your tailor-made offers. We would love to welcome and host you!

In this breathtakingly beautiful part of Transylvania, we offer a whole range of inspiring outdoor activities in the grounds of the Valea Verde and the surrounding hills and valleys. These activities are professionally supervised and implemented by experienced and competed trainers, coaches and guides, which hold respective qualifications.
Here are some examples of activities in Cund:
Each activity encourages participation, co-operation and fun, and is designed to enhance individual awareness of group dynamics, decision-making, communication, leadership and fellowship skills!
Slowly the word is spreading, that Transylvania has huge amounts and excellent quality of black truffles – the “culinary gold” of the forest! Apart from being terribly elusive and mysterious, truffles actually taste really good and are rightfully an important ingredient in the classic cuisine of most Western advanced culinary cultures!
On a guided two hour walk with a specially trained dog you experience the beautiful forest as well as the sensation of a “hunt!” Upon your return to the Valea Verde we will prepare some special courses featuring and highlighting the delicate taste of truffles. The fact that you are eating a prominent and famous ingredient foraged by yourself makes this a great activity for a group – and the food taste even better!
Our passion for wines, be they local or interational, has led to hosting a variety of truly exciting wine tastings. Expert Sommeliers and/or wine-makes will introduce the historical, technical and culinary background of exciting and tasty wines and pair them with some small delicious bites from the Valea Verde kitchen to also touch on the subject of wine and food pairing.
As Transylvania is also rapidly becoming more known (again) for its potential as a wine growing region and we are most fortunate to have a local winery very close to Valea Verde. The “Villa Vinea” vinery is a fabulous new investment by renown South-Tirolean entrepreneur Heiner Oberrauch, who decided to build a landmark winery with all the latest technology. The young vinery is producing wines since 2011 and, though still really young, is already winning national and international prizes! The winery offers tours of the winery and tasting sessions on-site – the grand views from the winery over the 32ha of vines are especially beautiful at sunset…
A visit to this close-by winery has become a very popular activity for groups – unwinding and entering the sensual and inspiring world of wines after a day of intense work is a great “pre-dinner” activity!
Special Culinary Experiences
In the Transylvanian Wilderness we are seeking to address and spoil all your senses with special culinary events hosted for groups. In a truly special rural country-side setting, we offer lavish multi-course menus prepared using fantastic local produce paired with amazing wines and, upon request, also several enlightening culinary workshops! The objective of these events is to celebrate the art of fine dining, to drink fine wines and to deepen the knowledge by small workshops on culinary topics – and last but not least, to wholeheartedly embrace life in an inspiring and relaxed setting!
For these special culinary events we collaborate with an arrange of international chefs and sommeliers, which all have their unique fields of expertise. In recent years we have hosted events with chefs with Michelin stars as well as inspired BBQ events and wine tastings with award wining sommeliers.
Horseback Riding and Horse & Cart Trips
Discover the beautiful nature on a horseback! Transilvania, and especially the area around Cund, is a true paradise for riders. In this part of the „land beyond the forest“ beautiful winding ways through old forests and endless fields of open land offer perfect conditions for exploring this beautiful part of the world. For horse-back riders we do have four horses, which can be ridden in our riding arena or, if you have mastered the basics, out in the wonderful open countryside. An experienced riding instructor will be at your side teaching beginners the basics and guiding the more experienced on wonderful trail rides in the open Transylvanian wilderness.
We also offer horse- carriage rides for our guests starting from the Valea Verde for trips into the amazing landscape and hidden valleys and clearings in the forrest on the top of the hillsides. Furthermore we can offer you a nice picnic set including some homemade antipasti, sandwiches and drinks for a refreshing break in a special place…
